Beware the Trickster in Anansi

Because for every end there must be a beginning…

Once upon a time there were no Fairelands, no faires, a no stories to be told. It is said that the trickster god Anansi, stole the seeds of creativity from the sky gods, nurturing them into life, giving birth to the fairelands, casting them to the void winds as he flees the wrathful gods.

But such tales are for children aren’t they?

Roll up, roll up for the greatest, the oldest, the most magical show in the Fairelands.
Come one, come all, for the Legendary Flying Circus of Anansi has arrived in the Fairelands,
Monsieur Anansi’s famous tugboat airship has hauled its procession across time and aether to amaze and entertain you.
Come aboard, don’t be afraid now.
Come gawp at the exhilarating entertainers,
Come stare at our fearful freaks and be dazzled by our daredevils
Come aboard the greatest clown tug in existence.
Marvel at the wondrous worldlings suspended by threads, under the ever watchful eye of Anansi’s Mechanical mysteries.
Ask yourself, are they kidnapped worlds, magically ensnared in Anansi’s circus web?
Or is this in fact, the stuff of legends, the source of everything that is, has been, and ever will be “Faireland”, springing from the very seeds of the gods?
