Saturday saw the ending of the Silent Auction of exclusives and mega fatpack deals, bringing us into over six million lindens relayed! Wonderful work, Faire Folk!
It was a busy day in the Literary Festival: Cata Charisma read fantasy favourites, there was a discussion on if fantasy is always about endings and Cold Shot Play Readers and Writers Open Mic.
In roleplay Lut’s Trial reached its conclusion in the Spires of Andolys and the Rickety Weasels launched on their final quest to figure out once and for all what is ailing Poppetsborough.
In Poseidon’s Abyss we had “Fantasme” by The Night Theater, “RFL Butterfly Strong” by JenzZa Misfit and “Dragons’nFairies’nFires~OhMy!” particle show by Tansee.
We also had a shocking Jail & Bail of Rynn Verwood, the Witch of Wildehaven Marsh. Despite being caught in a cage, the evil witch managed to keep casting curses on the Faire Folk, even offering them poisoned apples with drastic consequences. The lineup of accusations against her was dire. She had turned the fierce dragon Gargieux into a plushie toy, cursed a Faireland DJ Zander Greene into an alpaca, changed all of Alia Baroque’s clothing white and started a chain of evil transformations upon Sonya Marmurek, who after her initial dinkiefication had now found herself with a cat tail!
The accusations and outrage kept on piling, it was hard to keep track of all the evil one busy witch can get into! The crowd wanted to weigh her with a duck and see if she will float, but eventually the Faire Justice saw it fit that the witch paid triple everything that the Faire Folk put into the RFL kiosks. The accused — with the additional help of her evildinkie partner in crime Encaitaron Korobase — brought the final bail to 382,000 lindens! Surely that had to sting the witch at least a little!
Today we have the final day of Fantasy Faire’s program. We shall do our best to keep the portals active for as long as the magic manages to keep the Fairelands on the grid, but when it fades (aka when the Linden Lab removes the sims) it can be sudden and unannounced, so today is the last day we can guarantee the Fairelands are still there, bustling with events and activity.
As befits the last day, it is incredibly busy. We have two jail and bails, two roleplay events, four dance and particle performances, the very last LitFest event and naturally our Live Auction where we’ll sell off pieces of Fairelands themselves and dance the very last time this year in the Closing Ball.
The morning begins with Saffia Widdershins discussing stories within stories and the narrative of the Hunt in the Literary Festival 8-9am in Sylvan of Spells.
At 9-11am we have the Jail & Bail of Clover Dezno and Druscilla Ferraris, the notorious tinies that seem to end up in jail every single Faire. Come hear what they have got their tiny paws into this time!
11am-1pm the busy Sheriffs move into the Spires of Andolys for the Dwarfins have finally been caught and imprisoned! Come decide their fate!
Poseidon’s Abyss hosts three performances: Shining Starlettes Dance Group 10-11am, “Phantasme” by The Night Theater 12-1pm and “RFL Butterfly Strong” by JenzZa Misfit 3:30-4pm. In addition there’s the encore of ColeMarie Soleil’s stunning original music set and particle show in Ichi-go Ichi-e at 12-2pm.
Roleplay wraps up as well: the Rickety Weasels have their finale roleplay and a dance to conclude the story of the Tears of Poppetsborough at 11am-1pm in Poppetsborough. The party is DJed by Madonna Daehlie. Later on in Spires of Andolys the Lut’s Story reaches its conclusion as well, defining much of Sanctuary’s future with it.
And then there is Live Auction. You know, the thing where we sell off pieces — sometimes whole worlds — of the Fairelands themselves before they fade away forever. This is your one chance to capture a piece of the magic before it is gone. Come make sure you will walk away with a tangible piece of the Fairelands!
The Live Auction takes place in Poseidon’s Abyss 4-6pm and the music is provided by DJ Trader Whiplash, the Voice of Relay.
In addition we have DJ Madonna Daehlie (11am-1pm), Trader Whiplash (6-8pm) and Nyza Stillwater (8-10pm) on Fantasy Faire Radio. Make sure to tune in and listen, just enable the music stream when in the Fairelands or check the FFR information here.
Fantasy Faire has relayed L$ 6,268,699 ($ 25,075) by May 3rd, 1AM SLT. That’s right, over six million lindens and rising fast! Keep up the amazing work, Faire Folk!
