Our roleplay cycle for Fantasy Faire 2015
The NeoVictoria Roleplay Group will be presenting a very special series of roleplay events, produced exclusively for Fantasy Faire 2015.
Beginning on 15 April in NeoVictoria SIM, they will bring their story of love and redemption to the Fairelands on Friday, 24 April, when our intrepid band of roleplayers land in the winter-city of Aurora!
Everyone is invited to roleplay with us! We will be shooting machinima, so please wear your low-arc, low-script finest.
Cursed to bring winter wherever he goes, a despairing fae scientist flees the Sidhe empire for Aurora. But fate and love are not so easily abandoned. The shade of his human wife seeks the help of the NeoVictorians and they bring her to the Fairelands, to find her spouse and end the curse.
Here is the NeoVictoria Project’s schedule for the roleplay cycle we’re producing for Fantasy Faire 2015. Some scenes are set in NeoVictoria SIM and some are in the Aurora SIM in the Fairelands. We’ll update this page with the machinimas, as we make them. The NeoVictoria Project will be based in Aurora.

About the Project
About The NeoVictoria Project: NeoVictoria is a unique dark roleplay platform that brings creative people together in a supportive and collaborative environment. Built with a Steampunk aesthetic, the goal of The NeoVictoria Project is to create a virtuous circle where roleplay becomes filmed story. Website: http://www.neovictoria.net. Contact for NeoVictoria: Asil Ares.
About the Roleplay: In NeoVictoria, we do free-form dark roleplay. Free-form means there is no script; scenes evolve out of real-time character interactions. Dark roleplay means that characters often act in aggressive, predatory, criminal and/or plain uncomfortable ways. We use a simple dice-based wearable HUD called the Jade Kreations Role Play Tool Suite; avatars must wear this to see roleplay chat. The item is free and available in the out-of-character skymall.
Players do not have to be a member of our group to roleplay here; we ask newcomers take a tour of the Visitor Center in NeoVictoria SIM to learn about the storyworld before joining in the roleplay.
[Observer tags are also available for players who want to visit the land level, but not roleplay.]
About Our Storyworld: in the Neo’Verse, the Sidhe (fae) never faded, but worked with … some would say ruled over …their human charges until the Sidhe Empire spanned the known universe. So many races exist: faeries, demons and clockwerk constructs (powered by gears and magic), humans, vampires, werebeasts and celestials. All held against the ravages of time by magic, intrigue and human ingenuity.
Planet NeoVictoria (where our characters play) is a small planet, nestled in the VICO III galaxy, its citizenry cling to the land and sky, for its vast oceans are home to forces that do not heed the crown. But some are loyal to the Sidhe queen who sits on her throne billions of light-years away. Alexandrina Victoria Tuatha Dé Danann, Queen of Earth, Empress of the Void: one tap of her tiny foot on the Stone of Scone sets the worlds to shake. It’s 2130 and Pax Britannica has held sway for more than three thousand years.
