Event Description

In NeoLondon [NeoVictoria SIM].  Timmon’s robot is released from the Castle Lab, breaks the wards to a door and enters the Cathedral.  The resourceful Sam attempts to stop it, but not before it injects Strand motes into the organ that controls the power center; they begin to interfere with Cerridwen’s ability to feed energy to the City.  Lights start to go out, running water ceases to flow.

Cerridwen alerts the Auditor, advising if the power plant in the Cathedral were to go silent, the Empire would send some people in a big hurry. Some very very scary people.  Val Adler shares this information with the group and Sam shares what he discovered at the castle the previous evening. They go in search of more clues, leaving Cerridwen in flames, attempting to understand the true nature of the threat.

The roleplay continues in NeoVictoria today … join us at 6:00 PM, SecondLife-time or tune in tomorrow!

Robot in the Cathedral
As it approaches the door, the air grows still and warm, a heat haze starts to shimmer the closer you get. The door seems to hold a flaming glow, leaving it wonder, “Will you be burnt? Touch the door and it will open; how fares your hand?” Ignoring this emote the robots moves forward to the door and with one large swing of its arm smashes open the door and clambers inside the Cathedral.
Attacking the Core
Making it’s way over towards the organ of the power centre it thrusts a robotic arm into the organ. The Strand motes stream out of it’s arm flooding into the organ’s central force.
What Happened?
Golden wings rose from his back as he dove down the spiral staircase to go to the side of his charge. “Cerridwen!!”
Cerridwen Glows
Her hands and feet begin to glow from white to blue. She sees Valentine hovering before her and her eyes are wide and she holds her hands out for him to see, “Something is affecting me …it is like, … like …” her voice is hollow, never has she sounded more like a machine.
Confronting the Robot
Aware of some lowly beings coming towards it, the robot removes it’s construct armature from the control and swings round to face them.
Robot Escapes
Another strike from the first attacker makes the robot swing round at it with the limb that’s left and at the same time sprays motes into it’s face and the celestial’s direction while still screeching at a deafening pitch. Pushes forward once again towards the entrance to the cathedral, it makes its escape.
Val Falls Back
Valentine ‘Val’ Adler fell backwards at the force of Cerridwen’s energy, looking up from behind his shielding arm to peer at the great machine. “Cerridwen.. what.. what has happened to you..? What…”
Learn More
Her voice picks up the pace a bit. “You must learn more about this crude clockwerk; track it down! Take the ones who linger here and hunt that creature down before …the warding that djinn placed on the Queen’s portrait is consumed and we are exposed.
Val Adler Shares the News
Come with me, we must track down that bot!” His voice was determined, his eyes filled with an unusual blackness, “That is, if you value your sanity, and your lives..!
Motes Attack Cerridwen
The motes from the robot enter one of the secondary systems of the central core, flowing through the aether currents like an invading virus. They hit the central core and she begins to feel her body temperature rise.
Cerridwen in Flames
Her energy bubble begins to glow and she is almost impossible to discern; a ghostly female shape in an inferno of energy.
The Cathedral Dims
Myomy is sitting at her desk in her office, scrutinizing artwork for the new edition of the society pages when the lights go out. In the sudden dark, she sits bolt upright, listening for sounds that might explain the blackness.

Roleplay in the Faire

Blackwater Glenn - I

A series of tales will be unfolding at the Faire, with four established roleplaying groups bringing their stories to the Faire. Each will tell a story over part of the Faire; there’ll be opportunities for Faire visitors to become involved, to watch key events in the stories, and to follow the progression of these tales through news bulletins on Fantasy Faire Radio, and through special pages in the Events section of the Fantasy Faire blog.

NeoVictoria in Asperatus:

The story NeoVictoria will play at the Fantasy Faire is called “The Revenge of Professor Timmons.” In it, the professor has built a treacherous robot, which damages the town’s power center.  They  then make their escape to Asperatus.  The townsfolk chase after these miscreants, so there will be lots of excitement, fighting in the streets, and general mayhem going on. In the end, the bad guys will be defeated, and there will be a great big celebration on Friday, 9 May  (with Gabrielle Riel of Radio Riel fame as the live DJ).

The Rickety Weasels roleplay has come to an end and a happy ending it was: the four Guardians and the fate of the Fairelands has been saved, and the Dark Shadow himself got dunked!

Mourningvale Sanctuary:

A dead body has been found in Mourningvale with visible marks of torture that are the same as those that have been seen on bodies found in the city of Sanctuary! The guards in Sanctuary have put out a bounty on the killer so people will use the stargate and travel to this new town of Mourningvale Thicket to look for possible clues to find the killer.

Ascend to Asperatus

Asperatus poster

Asperatus (by Beq Janus) – Above the rolling, turbulence of the thick cloud plains the silence is broken by the deep throbbing hum of engines. The mighty “Asperatus” fills the sky, once the preserve of super rich merchants, this mighty airship is now the mainstay of the small colony that drifts around it. Come walk amongst the clouds, explore unlikely airships and marvel at mankind’s ever ingenious (and frequently implausible) devices in this steampunk inspired city in the sky.
