Blackwater Glenn - I

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

Rickety Weasels

Pirates of the Trade Winds

Mourningvale Sanctuary

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).

Rickety Weasels:

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!

Pirates of the Trade Winds:

A group of desperate pirates have found themselves stranded in Blackwater Glenn, desperately seeking funds to repair their ship. What lengths will they go to to accomplish their goal? You’ll certainly find a warm welcome in their impromptu tavern – but will you also find your pocket lightened?

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.

Faire Happenings

Palace of Tears_006

The Faire is constantly full of happenings: impromptu or planned. This is where you’ll find out about the planned ones, for the others you simply have to move into the Fairelands for their duration to not miss a moment. That’s what we all do!

This post will be updated to reflect the schedule of the next few days, it’ll stay on top of the site for easy reference.

JAIL AND BAIL

Jail and Bail is a long-standing Faire tradition where the Tiny Sheriffs arrest people for heinous crimes (such as having waffles that should belong to the tinies) and set a bail for the Faire Folk to pay to free them. The bail is always paid into RFL kiosks. These occasions tend to turn into sudden riots of fun and are one of the trademarks of Faire Fun.

DJS AND PARTIES

In addition to Fantasy Faire Radio that delights your ears everywhere in the Fairelands, we also have DJs playing for you several times a day. There’s usually a party going on somewhere in the DJ’s vicinity — the location might change depending on the DJ, best learned by being in time and listening to the stream — but even if you don’t feel like dancing, you can listen in while exploring the Fairelands.

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.

Blackwater Glenn (by Marcus Inkpen/ Sharni Azalee) – Rotting buildings sink into the swampy undergrowth as Nature reclaims this ground from Man. Gorgeous flowers and mysterious plants emerge sporadically throughout the swamp and pathways of open water lead to the centerpiece, a giant blossoming tree. Dark and murky, Blackwater Glenn has not been completely abandoned. In it you will find the light of hope. Let it lead you to rebirth.

Hope’s Horizon (by Jaimy Hancroft) – Inspired by Tolkien’s Minas Tirith, our White City gleams and shimmers on the horizon like a beacon leading wayfarers home. Carved out of the white rock of the mountains it clings to, Hope’s Horizon towers over the surrounding plains casting an aura of light into the darkness. Spiraling up lever upon level, the city ascends skyward crowned with a small courtyard. This majestic structure stands tall, upright, and full of power. One single blossoming tree stands at the top of it all to represent LIFE.

Mourningvale Thicket (by Searlait Nitschke) – Black trees with gnarled roots, twisting vines that grab at unsuspecting visitors, thorns the size of a man’s fist. Dark is the heart of Mourningvale Thicket caught fast in an enchanted sleep that runs wild with Night mares. However light creeps into even the most cursed of corners. Roses bloom in the moonlight and the sound of gypsy music carries on the wind as flames from distant campfires dance against the night.
