In last week’s episode we looked at the various events that were happening during the Faire.

This week we look at the beautiful regions themselves … and talk to some of the designers: Marcus Inkpen (Blackwater Glen), Elicio Ember (The Faery Court), Jaimy Handcroft (Hope’s Horizon), Kayle Matzerath (Wiggenstead Mooring) and Beq Janus (Asperatus).

And we also see the magical Romance of the Faery Court ballet, devised by Amethyst Dovgal and Aisling Sinclair.

Join us at 2pm for an incredibly beautiful show!

Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on Aview TV, on SLartist or on Treet – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site at http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds, on the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog – our very own version of the iPlayer!

The Fairelands will be open for a couple more days – if you haven’t visited yet, now is the time to take in all the breathtaking builds. And there’s another whole week to complete the amazing Hunt – and also time to enter the special photo contest and the short story/poetry competition.

Distractions, distractions…

So this morning I wanted to blog about something serious. I got myself a nice, strong coffee and thought about the charity that is helped by the Fantasy Faire. While trying to make my mind up on how to word the importance of sponsoring RFL, I hopped over to Wiggenstead Mooring and …..oh…look! Shinies!!

On a serious note, please read all about RFL on the special page on this site. And, enjoy the Fairelands and happy shopping!

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.

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.
