Official daily recaps during the Faire.

FF - Fairelands Junction2 by Alisaundra Andel

Daily Recap: Sunday

The Faery Court Sponsored By Cerridwen's Cauldron 2 by Alisaundra AndelSunday, the very last official day of the Fairelands this year was filled with frantic shopping and eager visitors, trying to catch the last moments of the magic while they still could. While they still can.

We had one more imprisonment by the Pawlice — apparently the Law holds underwater as well, for GraceSWF Wrigglesworth, the founder of Safe Waters Foundation was trapped in an underwater cage in Wiggenstead Mooring. Fortunately the new winds of Justice in the Fairelands managed to reach into the depths and the Commander of the Pawlice, Xavian Starsider, was soon bail-changed into the cage instead of the beautiful mermaid. This seems to have had some slight side effects on Commander Starsider, who soon mutated into a koala kraken. If that is not Faire Justice, I do not know what is!

The Live Auction distributed pieces of the Fairelands to those most deserving. (The level of deservingness might have been decided based on the amount of linden dollars offered to RFL.) Every year the Faire leaves pieces of itself on the grid through the Live Auction, shedding the old skin before fading into the Mists to slumber and take a new form to rise again.

The Auction held an extra special piece of the Fairelands for sale, a continued tone of Justice delivered: Commander Starsider was frozen in carbonite and then sold off! It remains to be seen if Alia Baroque, who purchased the frozen Commander for everyone to marvel at Selidor, will let him out by the next Faire. More importantly, it remains to be seen if Commander Starsider has learned his lesson by then! (What? We can be optimistic.)

After the Auction we had our traditional Closing Party, where all the exhausted and deliriously happy Fairelanders finally take a long breath and know it is done, and that it was well done. The giddy delight in the air can only be matched by the need of sleep and the conversations tend to match the atmosphere accordingly.

Today there is no official schedule, albeit there might be some unofficial entertainment zooming around when you least expect it. The Fairelands are still there and the portals are still open for all of you to come in and share the last moments of magic with us. The merchants are advised to pick up no-copy items for obvious reasons, but otherwise everything may be left as it is, to fade away with the Fairelands when they do so at some point around Tuesday (the exact moment is up to the Linden Lab.).

Hunters are strongly recommended to hurry up with finishing the first part of the hunt, Fimbleby’s Wager, for it will become impossible to complete when the Fairelands fade. However, the Palace of Tears will stay around a week longer and fade after May 18th, so there’s still plenty of time to finish the second part of the hunt.

We have by now relayed 5,635,962 linden dollars, equivalent of 22,544 US dollars, and there’s still more time to shop and donate! That’s an astonishing amount that goes straight to Relay For Life and American Cancer Society. All thanks to you, Faire Folk. Thank you.

Daily Recap: Saturday

Medhir Woods by Wildstar BeaumontSaturday brought us hectic times as the last weekend of the Faire always does when we all suddenly wake up to the realization it’s soon over and rush around to try to see it all, experience it all before it’s gone for a year.

There were two Jail and Bails in the Fairelands: first a cruel imprisonment of an absolutely innocent little petite called Yuna Yuadl, whom the Faire Folk bailed free as fast as they could because surely no creature as cute as her could have committed any crime on any plane ever! The second imprisonment was the Phoenix Firestorm Project’s Jessica Lyon, fittingly captured in a cage held by a phoenix, flames licking higher and higher from below until she promised a new Firestorm release for her own release!

We also witnessed a sight that had never been seen before: the Chief Commander of the Tiny Pawlice, Xavian Starsider, issued an official apology to Judy Chestnut of Dwarfins! More about this shocking turn of events soon.

Silent Auction closed in a fierce bidding war for the exclusive shinies, mouse-hands and fingers are certainly cramped today. Thank you to every bidder and congratulations to all the winners!

Sunday, our last official Faire day is here. We have one last Jail and Bail event for your entertainment: GraceSWF Wrigglesworth of Safe Waters Foundation has been captured, come bail the mermaid free and safely back to the water! The event is held in Wiggenstead Mooring 10AM-12PM SLT today.

The parties continue aboard the FaireChylde as you are all already used to, but starting from 4 PM SLT onwards we will be having our traditional Live Auction. It takes place in the courtyard of The Palace of Tears and lasts two hours. As always, the Live Auction is your one chance to go home with a piece of the Fairelands. This year we are offering up for bidding for example: the full build for Blackwater Glenn, Mourningvale Thicket, The Faery Court, Hope’s Horizon and Wiggenstead Mooring. There’s separate part offerings as well, like the Fish Gates and the Memorial Garden of Heavenslough, the Gazebo from Medhir Woods, the Shiva Jail from Asperatus, the Wizard’s Tower from The Palace of Tears, the Phoenix Jail and even The FaireChylde so you can keep on partying on the dragonship all around the year!

After the Live Auction there will be our traditional Closing Party taking place in the same place, come join us in saying goodbye to the Fairelands for one more year!

Thanks to the Faire Folk’s generosity at bailing out Yuna, Her High Faireness (a friend of all petite-kind), has decreed that the portals will not be closed and that the Faire Folk is welcome to visit the Fairelands until they fade out naturally with the vanishing magic. That’s right, people, the Faire is still open tomorrow! The merchants are advised to pick up no-copy items for obvious reasons, and there is no scheduled entertainment events on Monday, but the Fairelands are open as long as they manage to hold onto the grid.

This means that if you are in the middle of the hunt: make sure to finish the first part as soon as possible. The second part happens completely in The Palace of Tears, which will stay on the grid until May 18th so you can all figure out puzzles for a week longer.

It’s almost time for goodbyes, Faire Folk, but not quite yet. We won’t go down without a dance! Come and join us!

The FaireChylde at Hope's Horizon by Wildstar Beaumont

Daily Recap: Friday

The FaireChylde by Wildstar Beaumont

Friday in the Fairelands was filled with more Pawlice Brutality and abuse of dinkie powers more criminals brought to justice by the Tiny Paw of Law as Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods Inc. was captured and entrapped by magic in Sanctum. This time the Tiny Sheriffs did not even bother setting a bail for The Flesh Carver, but did allow the Faire Folk to vote with their wallets into the RFL kiosks to determine whether Mr. Baroque would be heading to heaven or hell. Despite fervent demands for justice and accusations of corruption, in the end the linden votes for hell reached 66,666 and the dreadful transformation into some sort of hell penguin began. The forces of heaven reacted too late in reaching way over 70,000 lindens and the vote was cast: Alia Baroque was sent to hell, where he remained at least a good five minutes. …what? He’s sent to one of them every year, you really think the Pawlice would have caught up with him having a deal going on with both places already…  Surely the higher planes work in mysterious ways!

The Tiny Sheriffs continued their oppressive ways later on by unjustly imprisoning Judy Chestnut of Dwarfins, setting her to force labor aboard the FFR Flagship FaireChylde! The Dwarfins gathered en-masse to free poor Judy and collected an impressive bail of over 100,000 lindens to free her. In addition Xavian Starsider, the Chief Commander of the Tiny Pawlice, has promised to issue an official apology to Judy today at 6 PM SLT at the Dwarfins store in Hope’s Horizon! That’s right, folks. An apology from the Pawlice! You cannot miss this historical occasion! Lesson learned, Faire Folk: do not mess with the Dwarfins for they are both rich with gems and they rock.

We can also report that the NeoVictorians have managed to capture both Professor Timmons and his robot and a triumphant victory party was held yesterday in Asperatus. The citizens of the Fairelands may sigh of relief and sleep better at night.

Today there are news of two more imprisonments: Yuna Yuadl of AnkleBiter at 10AM-12PM in Sanctum and Jessica Lyon of The Phoenix Firestorm Project at 7-9 PM SLT in the courtyard of The Palace of Tears. Surely this rampant fining and capturing is too much by now, come riot and protest and bail them out! Seriously, who imprisons a petite fairy… such cruelty!

The parties with continuous stream of DJs continues to rock The FFR Flagship FaireChylde, still on top of Hope’s Horizon. Come party on the dragon-ship!

I would also like to point out that our Silent Auction ends today at 5 PM SLT, so you better make your way to the Fairelands Junction and make sure your bid is the winning one!

Speaking of bids, the Live Auction will take place on Sunday, May 11th at 4-6 PM SLT in The Palace of Tears. This is the occasion where people get truly crazy for perfectly understandable reasons. Or how would you like to go home with Hope’s Horizon, Wiggenstead Mooring or The Faery Court? In their entirety. Or possibly the wizard’d tower from the Palace of Tears hunt is more to your liking? That’s just a few of the things coming up for bidding on Sunday, you better be there!

We’re currently over 4,200,000 lindens relayed, Faire Folk: keep up the good work!

The FaireChylde at Hope's Horizon by Wildstar Beaumont

Sanctum - III by Caitlin Tobias

Daily Recap: Thursday

Fairelands Junction - III by Caitlin TobiasThursday began with another shocking revelation as Cierra Anatine of Kismet was jailed for trying to cook and eat a Tiny Officer of Paw Law! The crowds were dismayed at this terrible crime and it might have very well been that Ms. Anatine’s cell key could have been very accidentally lost in the swamps if not for the suddenly appearing statues at the imprisonment site. We are not quite certain what happened and are hazy on the details, but we can almost guarantee that Ms. Anatine was freed after the bail was set and was not force-recruited to join the strange stone statue mob that was flashing through the Faire for hours.

By the time the infamous Druscilla Ferraris and Clover Dezno were finally captured in Sanctum, the stone statues seemed to have mostly dispersed, no doubt satisfied with what they had captured found from the Faire, although a few still seem to linger about. The two tinies were caged and accused of purposefully spreading fleas amongst the Faire Folk. Their situation was not any better for their so called support waving about ‘Fleas Are Friends’ posters. Eventually, after several half-successful escape attempts by Druscilla and plenty of tears from Clover, the tinies were bailed out and set free once more, hopefully to wash the poor innocent now-infested pigeons of Sanctum.

The Faire Folk could also delight their ears with the live music concert of Lyndon Heart aboard the FaireChylde. The dragon Akkarin has since flown to Hope’s Horizon for a change of scenery. You can hop aboard for all today’s DJ parties here, and see the schedule here.

As the Faire proceeds, the criminality rate rises through the roof: we know this to happen every year and every year the Tiny Pawlice does its best to apprehend the miscreants and bring them to the Faire Justice. Today we have two such trials: Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods Inc. 2-4 PM in Sanctum and Judy Chestnut of Dwarfins 8-10 PM in Hope’s Horizon. Come hear the charges and decide their fate!

The NeoVictoria roleplay in Asperatus is approaching its final plot twists: Professor Timmons has been captured and now only his robot stands between the NeoVictorians and the triumphant victory party. Join them 5-10 PM today in Asperatus!

Remember that the Silent Auction and both of our hunts are also running to keep you busy. We’re fast approaching four million lindens relayed: keep up the good work, Faire Folk!
