Roleplaying for Fantasy Faire & Charity

Strifeclaw, the great big panther that accompanies the roleplay group The Children of Stories as their Earth Guardian, gave a roleplay class on Roleplaying for Fantasy Faire & Charity at Fantasy Faire 2021. This is an edited transcript of the lesson, and a wonderful read for anyone considering combining roleplay and a charity event such as Fantasy Faire, or simply interested in how the two can work well together.

Anthem to the Worldmakers: A Special Broadcast on Fantasy Faire Radio

[Transcript of a special broadcast from Fantasy Faire Radio, May 12, 2020.  You can hear the broadcast here.]

Fairelands don’t just happen. They are born of the talent, time and dedication of many people. The 18 Regions of this year’s Faire were built by some of the most brilliant, visionary artists in the virtual world or any other. Some of those have been part of the Faire for 12 years now. Some joined us in 2020 for the first time. Each played a vital role in making the 2020 Faire an experience that none of us will ever forget.

While Fantasy Faire Radio began this year with a tribute sets to the Regions, today we honor not the Fairelands that were created, but rather the creators of those Regions themselves. They are the reason why our One Vision found a home in Many Realms. They make us Stronger by giving us a place to be Together.

Fantasy Faire Radio is proud to present this special broadcast, “Anthem to Worldmakers.”
