Tuesday brought us the Pratchett Day! April 28th would have been the 67th birthday of the much loved fantasy writer Terry Pratchett. In celebration and appreciation of the late Sir Terry we had several Pratchett related Literary Festival events, some of which will still spread out further into the Faire schedule. There were events where people could discuss their favourite Pratchett exctracts, characters and novels, free fedoras were distributed, respect and love for his imagination and worlds shared.
The Literary Festival also had two different sessions of New Babbage Tales to discuss the steampunk town’s transformation into a city of storytellers.
The Tiny Sheriffs association arrested Charlie of .:Soul:. and the Faire Folk had to pay the bails into RFL kiosks while Commander Starsider himself played clearly triumphant tunes for the event, although he did state a following disclaimer about his music choices: “If you’re enjoying the music, I’m Commander Xavian Starsider of the Faireland Sheriff’s Association, happy to be spinning for this momentous occasion. If you’re not enjoying it, I’m Zander Greene.”
After Charlie was released for the bail of 20,000 lindens and being found innocent, the true culprit was thrown in jail instead: Dee Linden was caught and imprisoned for the Faire Folk to judge! This summoned several other Lindens and Moles to the location, and a joint effort was made to bribe the bail-payers with the promise of rare Linden Bears, including the Governor and Philip Linden Bears! One most note that at least Keira Linden did inquire if it is possible to pay to keep Dee Linden in jail, though. Eventually Dee was freed for the bail of 40,000 lindens and with the guarantee that the foundations of our Fairelands continue to be smoothly delivered onto us every spring! Thank you, Lindens!
The roleplay in the Fairelands saw Lut’s Trial continuing in the Spires of Andolys and the NeoLondoners searching for the groom within the frozen city of Aurora.
Poseidon’s Abyss held the “RFL Butterfly Strong” and “Fantasme” performances for the ever-hungry crowds that keep returning for more dance and particle show beauty.
Today we continue to celebrate Terry Pratchett’s life and works with a live reading of Reaper Man at 10am-12pm. The Literary Festival continues with Taralyn Gravois and a discussion on Art and Fantasy 5-7pm. Both events take place in Sylvan of Spells.
Poseidon’s Abyss hosts three dance and particle shows: “Dragons’nFairies’nFires~OhMy!” by Tansee at 1-2pm, “RFL Butterfly Strong” by JenzZa Misfit 4:30-5pm and “Fantasme” by The Night Theater 7-8pm.
Roleplay in the Fairelands continues with Sanctuary’s Trial of Lut, now with defense calling witnesses at 1-2:30pm in the Spires of Andolys and the Rickety Weasels will be searching for the Well of Intuition 3-5pm in Poppetsborough.
The Tiny Sheriffs have arrested yet another wrongdoer in their quest to make the Fairelands a better (and more wafflesome) place for all (especially tinies with a badge): Aikea Rieko of Plastik is imprisoned and needs to be bailed out! Come help her out 4-6pm!
In addition we have DJs Otenth Paderborn (5-7pm) and Nyza Stillwater (7-9pm) on Fantasy Faire Radio. Remember to turn your music on when visiting the Fairelands!
Fantasy Faire has relayed L$ 4,352,991 ($ 17,412) by April 29th, 1AM SLT. Keep up the amazing work, Faire Folk!
