Our roleplay cycle for Fantasy Faire 2016!

The NeoVictoria Roleplay Group was thrilled to present this very special series of roleplay events, produced exclusively for Fantasy Faire.

It began on Thursday, 21 April in NeoVictoria SIM, then we brought our story of duty and heroism to the Fairelands on Friday, 22 April, when our intrepid band of roleplayers landed in the Elven city of Serenity!

Roleplayers from all the Fairelands were encouraged to join in the roleplay with us!

Promo for “The Sidhe and The Soul-Eater”

Event Description

Thousands of years past, a sidhe failed in their duty and let a nameless terror into the worlds. It cost them their life, but not their soul. That was put into a mechanical marvel, and so began their long service as a sentinel against the darkness.

But after so long, their mechanical body has begun to fail and that nameless evil escapes its bonds. The automaton sends word to the Sidhe Empire for assistance.

Will help arrive in time?

NeoVictoria: dark roleplay, steampunk style

The NeoVictoria Project …a steampunk experiment in machinima and dark roleplay

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 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 object called the NeoVictoria Roleplay Tool (NRT); avatars must wear this to see roleplay chat. The item is free and available in our out-of-character skymall.

Players do not have to be a member of our in-world roleplay 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 2133 and Pax Britannica has held sway for more than three thousand years.
