Tuesday rolled into the Fairelands relaxing and inspiring, full of events, but with enough time to spare for the Faire Folk to explore the Fairelands and to try to solve the quest to save the Bard Queen. If you haven’t started The Fairelands Quest: The Bard Queen’s Song, I suggest you do it now!
The roleplayers’ stories proceeded at steady pace: have you noticed that you can read detailed updates on our website, both daily and in their own pages?
One of the roleplay-groups, The Lilypods at Mudrana, held a party as a part of their roleplay. The Faire Folk were encouraged to donate to the RFL kiosks to help free the Sunrise Fish with the magic of good will, charity and cheer. We have the exact details on the nature of the spell, if you’re interested.
When charity is involved, the Faire Folk don’t hold anything back! After Zander Greene announced that should the donations required for the spell reach 40,000 linden dollars, he would wear a hula outfit, Alia Baroque added that if 50,000 linden dollars were reached, he would follow the suit. So to speak.
“Alia looked at me, and himself and said ‘You and I make this look good!’ I pointed out that I agreed with exactly HALF of that statement.”
– Zander Greene
In the end the Faire Folk donated 60,000 lindens, which Zander Greene matched on behalf of the Faire Sponsors, and the final amount of charity reached 120,200 linden dollars! This was definitely enough to break the spell and free not only the Sunrise Fish, but also the next part of the story of The Lilypads. Their adventure is not yet done, and there is still plenty to figure out to save their beloved land of Mudrana from the Unweaver.
In the Literary Festival there were Region Tours to Fallen Sands and San Mora, as well as Fantasy Writing Prompts, Open Mic and Seanchai Library. There was also a delightful session with Morgen Rich, focusing on how to move from roleplay to being an author.
Opal Flight held three performances: The Night Theater, Misfit Dance & Performance Art and The Monarchs. DJ Madonna made Faire Folk dance at The Lilypads party in Mudrana, and DJ Holocluck Henly entertained the Faire Folk later on the deck of The FaireChylde.
Today is Tolkien Day! Today we are celebrating the work of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, who in many ways is among the founders of fantasy literature as we understand it today. Fantasy Faire owes him a great debt, for surely we would not exist in this shape and form without his imagination and vision.
We will have a series of Literary Festival events at The Hill, as is fitting, including Seanchai Library’s readings from Tolkien 1 – 2 PM and A Walk through Middle Earth 7 – 8 PM. The Fantasy Writing Prompts 10 – 11 AM also relocate to The Hill for today, only Stories from Rosehaven 4 – 5 PM stays in Kakushi Pasu.
There is also An Unexpected Party at The Hill 2 – 4 PM! It begins with a Seanchai Library reading of the party chapters from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, followed by a proper party with DJ Vasa Vella. Come join us at The Hill!
The LitFest Region Tours will travel to The Hill 12 PM – 1 PM, 5 – 6 PM and 8 – 9 PM. The tours gather in Kakushi Pasu first before venturing forth.
