Official daily recaps during the Faire.

Daily Recap: Sunday

FF2016 - set A - Fairelands Junction_001

Sunday was the last official day of Fantasy Faire this year. It feels surreal, it feels too soon. Surely we opened just yesterday?

The very last events rolled in early: the Region Tour to Blackmoor, Lady Garden Cabaret in Sapphire Mirror Lake, ColeMarie Soleil’s music and particle performance in Lucentia and the conclusion of Sanctuary’s roleplay in Dangarnon.

There was also a not-so-shocking Jail & Bail in Bright Haven as Clover Dezno and Druscilla Ferraris were thrown behind bars. These two tinies simply cannot stay out of trouble and every Faire the Long Paw of Law catches them sooner or later, which is inevitably followed by a not-so-tiny riot of tinies, always sooner than later.

The protests against the Pawlice Abuse rose to levels never witnessed before and with no intervention from Her High Faireness this time, the most magical of miracles happened! The innocent victims were freed and the Pawlice found themselves locked up instead!

This day will surely go down in Faire history. Mostly because I’m the one scribbling the said history, a Faire-day by Faire-day, and this day marks a great triumph in the struggle against the waffle-addicted tyranny of the Pawlice! …although one might also note that the moment they were locked up, there was about ten cunning plots for hijinks and shenanigans conceived within the audience. Perhaps… just perhaps we need the Pawlice after all. The bail money to free the accused, to keep them locked in, to lock up the Pawlice, to free the Pawlice to turn laughter into medicine reached 106,000 lindens in the RFL kiosks.

The jail and bail pawtay was followed by our traditional Live Auction. Every year we auction off pieces of the Fairelands so that people can bring a piece of magic home with them. In addition to the high bid items we also had Faire-souvenirs for sale so that everyone could take at least some mementos home. This year we had the banners from the website by Alia Baroque and a wonderful gacha of dwagis, decorated by several of our world builders.

The Live Auction was hosted by Her High Faireness Elizabeth Tinsley, whose voice kept the audience caught in that rare mix of emotions where you feel you could cry, but cannot stop smiling. The whole auction brought to mind very strongly why we bring the Fairelands back every year, why we Relay.

The highest selling item that turned into a heart-stopping bid war was the Last Hope statue from Dangarnon. Both Searlait Nitschke and Gwen Enchanted had decided they had to have this beautiful harp-playing sculpture. In the end and after a discussion with DRD’s team, a compromise was made: both Searlait and Gwen paid 205,000 lindens and both of them received the statue, and all the Dangarnon extras the DRD team added to it. This is the first of its kind solution in the Faire history and it made the whole audience both stunned and weepy, for everyone knows that purchasing Last Hope for RFL is in fact giving that Hope for many.

Altogether the Live Auction had about twenty items up for bid, including for example the whole region of Breeze, all the Coolbuses, fancy hedgehogs from Echtra, the crystal from Lucentia, memorials from Blackmoor and Serenity, forests from Twilight Illusion and Lucentia, OtherWorld geology pack, special FF-marked Egyptian statues from The Golden Delta and even the Dark Tower from Dangarnon! Together with the souvenir-banner and gacha sales the Live Auction brought over one million lindens for Relay For Life.

The final wrap-up of the Faire was of course the May Day Masked Ball, taking place in Sapphire Mirror Lake right after the Live Auction. The party was DJed by Gabrielle Riel of Radio Riel, our media partner who makes Fantasy Faire Radio possible.

The King, Queen and the Chancellor of Fantasy Faire were revealed during the party, the Faire Folk’s votes favoring The Last Unicorn as the Chancellor, October Daye as the queen and The Goblin King as the king of the Faire!

The party kept going well past the official hours to the point when even the most determined Fairelander had to succumb to sleep, to continue the Faireland exploration in their dreams.

By early morning hours of Monday Fantasy Faire has relayed L$ 7,375,719 lindens, which translates to $ 29,503 US dollars! This is a stunning achievement and it leaves all of us speechless in gratitude. Well done, Faire Folk. Magnificently well done.

Although the Faire is now officially closed, the Fairelands are still open! There are no more events and the higher powers known as the Linden Lab can and may make the Fairelands fade into the mists whenever they wish, but we have been given the understanding that all their mist-fader-machines are reserved until Wednesday, giving us a couple of extra days to wander around the Fairelands, explore, shop and even finish the Quest! Yes, the quest stays open and playable as long as the Fairelands exist. Speaking of, if you have finished it, please give us feedback on it!

So peaceful

Daily Recap: Saturday

Breeze9

Saturday was — as can be expected – extremely busy day. It was also a happy day, full of exploration and wanderings and events, the approaching end of the Faire not yet fully realized.

The Literary Festival held its last full schedule with Poets’ Plunder, Speculative Fiction, Organic Literary Growth in New Babbage and ‘For the Love (and Hate) of Lovecraft. The Region Tours traveled to Tinkers Hollow and Blackmoor.

The Sapphire Mirror Lake had four shows: Shadows Silhouettes “Pieces of Eight”, The Night Theater “Fairytales Told”, The Misfits “The Rest of the Story” and The Avilion MerBallet.

The big shock of the day was The Tiny Sheriffs Association arresting three sweetest and most innocent Faire Folk ever: Avariel Falcon, Yuna Yuadl and Zohee Goldshark. When a unicorn, a petite fairy and a mermaid can’t peacefully walk into a bar… wait. Peacefully walk in the Fairelands, surely something is wrong with the Law!

Wildstar Beaumont:
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of the people
Who will not be slaves of the pawlice again!

The objections and the rioting rose to such levels that the Pawlice were jailed themselves after enough bails were paid, which brought up a surprising show of support from Her High Faireness herself, who promised to join them in jail if the Faire Folk insisted on their corruption. There was a lot of scuffing of hooves and toes, for surely accusing Her High Faireness is beyond anyone’s imagination!

When the innocent Fairelanders were finally freed, the crowd followed Avariel Falcon to a quest of utmost importance: to bring the seasons back to Echtra! The Children of Echtra had been busily figuring out why their land was so gloomy and cursed throughout the Faire, had braved dangers and found out the truth and now they were trying to warm the frozen dragon’s heart to free the land from the curse of stuck time.

How do you warm a dragon’s heart, you may ask. The children approached this dilemma in several ways: the simplest one is of course with gold, it warms any dragon’s heart, but when offered willingly to those in need, it carries an extra element of compassion with it. In addition the children told stories of warm moments in their lives, of catching frogs in the summer, of playing under the warm sun, all the while dancing around the magical fire to the music played by DJ Zander Greene.

When even the Winter Prince and the Summer Princess joined in the dance, the curse was broken and the sunlight returned to Echtra, much to the joy and delight of the Faire Folk. It took 125,000 lindens in RFL kiosks to raise the dragon from his slumber, but it was certainly worth it!

In the other roleplay stories the Sanctuary searched for a hero fitting the description to meet the Blood King and in the Great Alliance’s story the Queen finally made her choice of suitors!

The Silent Auction closed and wrapped up with its usual hectic last-moment bidding wars, all of the 250,000 lindens going to Relay For Life. DJ Nuala Maracas kept the bidders dancing throughout these best of combats.

The parties continued throughout the evening with the help of DJ Nyza Stillwater, DJ Magdalena Kamenev and DJ TheIceDemon Starside.

Today is the last official day of the Faire.

It’s always a stunning sentence to write, it feels like we just opened and it cannot close yet, there is still too much to see and do! Fortunately we never close the portals to the Fairelands and although the higher powers known as Lindens can and will remove the lands at any point after Sunday, they have been known to be lazy about it, giving the Faire a few extra unofficial days for wandering, exploration and shopping!

As you can guess, today’s schedule is filled with last moments. There is the last Region Tour heading to Blackmoor 10-11 AM, starting from the Pavillion in OtherWorld. The last dance performance in Sapphire Mirror Lake: Lady Garden Cabaret 11AM-12PM and the last particle and music show of ColeMarie Soleil’s in a special stage in Lucentia 12PM-1PM.

The very last part of the roleplay stories is played out 1-3 PM in Dangarnon with the Sanctuary roleplayers and their classic struggle between good and evil as the Blood King attacks the heroes.  Will he succeed in spreading his evil over the lands?  Who will prevail?

There is also the very last of Jail & Bails today, the Tiny Sheriffs turn against their own and jail none other than Clover Dezno and Druscilla Ferraris! It never fails! These two tinies can’t go a Faire without adding to their ever expanding rap sheet! But say what you will, they know how to pawtay! Ever see a sim full of tinies get nakie in protest! We have. Who knows what will happen? All we can say for sure is that Justice has never been swifter! Or cuter! DJ Catalina Staheli will TRY to keep a straight face. But don’t worry. You don’t have to! Come join us 11AM-1PM in Bright Haven!

The highlight of the day is of course our traditional Live Auction, taking place in Sapphire Mirror Lake 2-4 PM SLT. This is your one chance to win pieces of the Fairelands for yourself. How about the Cinderella Statue or the Dark Tower of Dangarnon for your home sim? What about acquiring all of the hedgehogs from Echtra for your forest? Oh, I know! Would you like the whole region of Breeze, perhaps? Come to the Live Auction and make your bid!

Leading up to the auction and spinning out of it will be DJ Zander Greene and following the Auction we have our traditional May Day Ball masquerade in Sapphire Mirror Lake 4-6 PM, DJed by Gabrielle Riel. Come join us in this last of the lasts of this Faire as we dance the night away and celebrate the Spirit of the Fairelands and Relay!

If you haven’t finished The Fairelands Quest: Tale of Exiles, I suggest you run to start or continue it right now, the dragon hoard of prizes is well worth it, as is the amazing adventure leading up to it! If you have finished it, please tell us what you thought, we use all the feedback in providing you with even a better story next year!

Fantasy Faire has relayed L$ 5,845,434 lindens by the end of the tenth day of the Faire. Keep up the fantastic work, Faire Folk!

Daily Recap: Friday

Golden Delta1

Friday was positively hectic with all the events gearing toward our last weekend in the Fairelands!

In the Literary Festival there was Poetry Prompt, Short Story Discussion Group, Lyrical Cafe Poetry Club, reading by Boudicca and Region Tours to Breeze and Tinkers Hollow.

All four roleplay stories advanced within the Fairelands. In Dangarnon the Sanctuary roleplayers blessed the blade they earlier managed to retrieve from hell, only to face another dilemma in its use: only those fallen and risen in battle could face the Blood King. In Echtra the Children and their Guardians armed themselves with the artifact to reach the Princess trapped in Stone. In Twilight Illusion the plot thickened with the Queen’s Captain of the Guard closing the festivities to find out the truth and in Serenity the NeoVictorians managed to return to their home in NeoLondon, closing the portal between dimensions.

The sim-filling event of the day was the Jailing of Alia Baroque, the creator of Fallen Gods Inc. and the world builder of The Golden Delta. Every year the Tiny Sheriffs capture Mr. Baroque on a long list of surely fabricated charges. This year he was caught in an especially constructed sarcophagus, guarded by fierce …Anubenguins.

FF2016 - Alia Baroque's Jail and Bail_006

As traditional, Mr. Baroque offered a choice to the Faire Folk: should he be sent to Anubis who would destroy his body, but preserve his soul, or should he be given to Isis who would turn his body to immortal gold, but destroy his soul. Each choice was voted for by paying a RFL kiosk beneath the chosen god, and each choice of sufficient sum also brought with it the blessing of that deity in the form of an exclusive skin.

Voting was fierce, the Pawlice fiercer! The Faire Folk had gathered in masses, the Golden Delta was packed to 80 people and yet the pyramids stood strong. By the end of the imprisonment time it became clear that the Tiny Sheriffs were not going to honor the deal with the gods, which unleashed the Wrath of the Gods unto them as Alia Baroque was transformed into his Ultimate Form, released from his captivity by the shared powers of Isis and Anubis. I would not have wanted to be a Tiny at that point, no waffle was safe!

Altogether the Faire Folk voted for Isis worth 131,165 lindens, Anubis worth 109,480 lindens and there was also a crowd of people worth 46,250 lindens participating through Convio  — the handy Donate button on the top right of our site — and these Convio-donators will be delivered both skins later on by Mr. Baroque. That means 286,895 lindens relayed by the time that Coolbus started off from The Golden Delta! Amazing work, Faire Folk and Fallens, absolutely amazing!

Yes, Coolbus. If you are unfamiliar with this tradition you might be surprised by a sudden appearance of a disco bus zooming around the Fairelands, trailing sparkles and distant cries of ‘we’re going to diiieeeeeee!’ The Bus has made its tours since 2013 and just like the Fairelands, it changes shape every year. If you see the bus, feel free to hop on, it is mostly completely non-lethal!

The Misfits - Dancing Orca

The Bus zoomed past Sapphire Mirror Lake, too, then the tour was called off in favor of a dancing orca in the Misfits Show, surely the best dancer in the Fairelands! In addition to the Misfits, Friday featured also the ChangHigh Sisters, The Night Theater, The Avilion MerBallet and The Monarchs on the stage.

The parties continued both on and off the FaireChylde. We had DJ Madonna Daehlie, DJ Zander Greene playing for the Jailing of Alia Baroque, DJ AineMari Flanagan DJing for the roleplay in Echtra, DJ Nyza Stillwater and DJ Bard Wasp wrapping the evening.

Today is the last Saturday in these Fairelands and the weekend proves to be busy as everyone tries to make sure they have seen absolutely everything before the Fairelands fade into the mists again.

The crowd-gathering event today is another rampant act of Pawlice Justice in the Fairelands! This time the Tiny Sheriffs have issued a warrant on Avariel Falcon, our favourite Faire unicorn, Zohee Goldshark of the Safe Waters Foundation and Yuna Yuadl, the sweetest and most innocent petite there ever was! All those rumors of ankle biting are slander and lies! DJ Catalina Staheli provides music for the occasion as the Faire Folk will see these innocent people freed! (or else!) Come to Bright Haven 11AM-1PM today and bring a big stack of waffles, this might get costy!

In the Literary Festival we have Poets’ Plunder with Klannex Northmead 6-7 AM, ‘For the Love (and Hate) of Lovecraft with Arik Metzger (Arik the Red) 12AM-1PM, Speculative Fiction with Simeon Beresford 2-3 PM and Organic Literary Growth in New Babbage with Bookworm Hienrichs 3-4 PM. The Region Tours will travel to Tinkers Hollow 10-11 AM and Blackmoor 5:30-6:30 PM. All the Literary Festival events take place in the Pavillion in OtherWorld, even the Region Tours gather there before venturing forth.

On the stage in Sapphire Mirror Lake there are four shows: Shadows Silhouettes “Pieces of Eight” 1-2 PM, The Night Theater “Fairytales Told” 3-4 PM, The Misfits “The Rest of the Story” 5-6 PM and the Avilion MerBallet 7-8 PM. All the shows will take place in Sapphire Mirror Lake.

On roleplay front more stories come to a close as the Children of Echtra restore the gloomy land of Echtra to its former glory 1-3 PM. Join them and DJ Zander Greene for this thrilling and spirit lifting conclusion! 4-5 PM In Dangarnon the Sanctuary roleplayers still have work to do for they have to find someone who has fallen and has risen again in battle to wield the weapon against the Blood King. In Twilight Illusion we learn which one of the suitors wins the Queen at 5-7 PM in the Great Alliance’s roleplay: will it be the Dark Prince?

The parties continue, both on the FaireChylde and throughout the Fairelands! DJ Zander Greene will join the Children of Echtra 1-3 PM for the conclusion of their roleplay storyline. DJ Nuala Maracas will provide music for the exciting closing of our Silent Auction in Fairelands Junction 3-5 PM. DJ Nyza Stillwater joins the Region Tour to Blackmoor 5-7 PM, providing a soundtrack for this Faireland! In the evening the parties on the FaireChylde feature DJ Magdalena Kamenev 7-9 PM and DJ TheIceDemon Starside 9-11 PM.

If you haven’t yet started the Fairelands Quest: The Tale of Exiles you better hurry! Adventuring takes time, especially of this level of epic wonder. Remember also to vote for your favourites for the King, Queen and the Chancellor of the Faire in Sapphire Mirror Lake and most importantly: remember that the Silent Auction closes today at 5 PM SLT! If you want those unique items to be yours, better come over to Fairelands Junction and make sure you win them!

Check either Calendar of Events or Faire Happenings for daily event details!

Daily Recap: Thursday

Twilight Illusion
Twilight Illusion, picture by Alisaundra Andel

Thursday is traditionally a chaotic day in the Fairelands, and this Thursday was no exception! At this point the Fairelands have been in our reality for a week and their influence has swept away any norms or behaviour patterns from outside the Fairelands: only the happy Faire Folk remain.

A perfect example of this was a sudden gathering of dinkies and tinies in The Golden Delta. This pawtastic party threatened the very sanity of onlookers by its cuteness! The cleoCATras promised to twerk for a fee of 20,000 lindens in the RFL kiosk and the crowd happily paid that and more! Surely you can’t find entertainment this fantastic anywhere else!

In somewhat calmer tones, the Literary Festival held the Poetry Prompt and Poetry Surf (open mic), a reading about Conan by Shandon Loring and traveled to Bright Haven and Breeze on their Region Tours.

The stage in Sapphire Mirror Lake filled with three performances: Sky Fire’s particle performance “Lucid Dreaming”, TherpsiCorps’ “Seuss-a-licious” and The Monarchs’ “Adventures from the Lost Island”.

The roleplay stories are beginning to take a turn toward conclusion. In Serenity the NeoVictorians Crom Dubh released the Sidhe’s soul from its mechanical shell and the City came together in a celebration DJed by Gabrielle Riel. In Twilight Illusion the Great Alliance’s Captain of the Guard shut down the festivities in order to get to the bottom of the Dark Prince’s plot.

On FaireChylde we had four DJs rocking the dragon boat: DJ Kenshin, DJ ColeMarie, DJ AineMari and DJ Gabrielle Riel, and also DJ Gerrard Winstanley who DJed our main event of the day: Lady Dee and Lord Patch Linden Jailed!

That’s right, the Tiny Sheriffs Association captured Lindens! Apparently the charge had something to do with planning to make Sansar a waffle-free zone: which to our dismay does not mean free waffles. Lady Dee and Lord Patch Linden were put behind bars in Serenity and various Moles and Lindens appeared to see their fate and to try and free them.

[13:29] Governor Linden entered the region (389.80 m).
[13:29] Jessica Lyon: Gah!!! It’s da Gov!
[13:29] Governor Linden: LET MY PEOPLE GO!

The Lindens tried several methods of getting themselves free: there were bear bribes, promises of friend list, meetings with them, even visiting an unknown sim with them! To help them gain their freedom there was plenty of generous matching of paid bails, altogether reaching the stunning sum of 263,562 lindens in the RFL kiosk!

(Lindens, as in the currency. Not Lindens as the people. Just two Lindens in jail! Many more lindens in the kiosk!)

Friday zooms in to begin the weekend celebrities and there is no sign of slowing down in the Fairelands!

The one event you do not want to miss today is the Jailing of Alia Baroque, the creator of Fallen Gods Inc. and the world builder of The Golden Delta. As always, he will offer exclusive skins in the RFL kiosks as the Faire Folk gets to choose his fate by picking which kiosk to pay. I have heard from a good authority that this is the capture that the Tiny Sheriffs await the most for apparently his list of offenses is so long that it makes the Silmarillion seem positively zippy! Alia Baroque will be jailed in The Golden Delta 1-3 PM, come witness his fate!

In somewhat calmer vein the Literary Festival holds Poetry Prompt with Lesley Writer 11AM-12PM, a reading by Boudicca 1-1:45 PM, The Short Story Discussion Group with Destry Recreant 3-4 PM, Lyrical Cafe Poetry Club (readings and open mic) with Kamille Kamala 7-8 PM and Region Tours to Breeze and Tinkers Hollow. All the Literary Festival events will take place in the Pavillion in OtherWorld, even the Region Tours gather there before venturing forth.

In Sapphire Mirror Lake we have five performances: The ChangHigh Sisters “Fantasy Fire Show” 11-12 AM, The Night Theater “Fairytales Told” 1-2 PM, The Avilion MerBallet 3-4 PM, The Misfits “The Rest of the Story” 5-6 PM and The Monarchs’ “Adventures from the Lost Island” 8-9 PM.

All four of our roleplay groups have events today! Sanctuary roleplayers have returned safely from hell and continue figuring out what is the next step on their journey in Dangarnon 2-3 PM. In Echtra the children attempt to reach out to the Princess trapped in stone 3-4:30 PM. In Twilight Illusion the revelations continue in the Great Alliance’s Suitors for the Queen storyline 5-6 PM and in Serenity the NeoVictorians return home, closing the portal between the dimensions 6-9 PM.

On FaireChylde the parties feature DJ Madonna Daehlie 11AM-1PM, DJ AineMari Flanagan 3-5 PM, DJ Nyza Stillwater 5-7 PM and DJ Bard Wasp 7-9 PM, and in addition DJ Zander Greene will DJ the Jailing of Alia Baroque!

Daily Recap: Wednesday

Serenity5

Wednesday was positively a sparkly day! It was also an extremely emotional day for us, for although we receive wonderfully heartwarming thanks from the Faire Folk often, yesterday we read words that could have made even stone statues weep. I encourage you all to read the Story of Hope and learn why we do this, why it is important that the Fairelands return year after year.

The busy event schedule for the Literary Festival held a Poetry Prompt, The Writers Open Mic and a SL Flickr Photo Story Challenge for Beginners. The Region Tours traveled to Dangarnon and Bright Haven.

There were several performances to indulge your eyes and soothe your spirit. The Night Theater’s “Fairytales Told” continued to enchant people with their remakes of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytales. ColeMarie Soleil held another music and particle performance of stunning colours and sounds and in the evening The Monarchs played their “Adventures from the Lost Island” again.

Roleplay stories advanced on three fronts. The Sanctuary roleplayers had to travel all the way to Hell and back for their quest. The Children of Echtra went hunting for a thief to recover the relic that is needed to return the seasons to their cursed land. In Serenity the NeoVictorians battled against the Soul-Eater.

On FaireChylde the parties just kept becoming wilder! We had a lineup of five DJs: DJ Holocluck Henly, DJ Elrik Merlin, DJ Vasa Vella, DJ Nyza Stillwater and DJ Hazard Fizzle!

Thursday greets us with a busy schedule and an opportunity you should not miss! Today at 1-3 PM The Tiny Sheriffs Association brings Lady Dee and Lord Patch LINDEN for the Faire Justice! 

The Tiny Sheriffs heard that the Lindens were planning to make the new platform a waffle-free zone. And they seemed so happy! Until we explained that didn’t mean FREE waffles. Then they were not so happy. Now TWO Lindens, the Lady Dee and the Lord Patch THINK they are coming to a surprise party in Serenity. It’ll be a surprise for sure! Unless….they read this site…DRAT! DJ Gerrard Winstanley will be there spinning live for Fantasy Faire Radio!

Right before the Lindens imprisonment there’s a Surprise Appearance of Captivating Cleopatras in The Golden Delta, starting at noon!  There’ll be dancey paws and wiggly dinkie ears delighting everyone under the hot Delta sun, and perhaps the fancy felines may be persuaded to perform dances of very particular nature should the RFL kiosks filled appropriately! Read: dinkie hijinks and shenanigans, also: twerking!

The Literary Festival hosts Poetry Prompt with Lesley Writer 11AM-12PM, Wolfie’s Poetry Surf (open mic) 1-2PM, and a reading by Shandon Loring focusing on Conan 7-8 PM. The Region Tours travel to Bright Haven 10-11 AM and Breeze 5:30-6:30 PM. All the Literary Festival events take place in the Pavillion in OtherWorld, even the Region Tours gather there first before venturing forth.

In Sapphire Mirror Lake we have three performances: Sky Fire Particle Performance “Lucid Dreaming” 2-3 PM, TherpsiCorps “Seuss-a-licious” 5-6 PM and The Monarchs “Adventures from the Lost Island” 8-9 PM.

The roleplayers weave their stories in two sims today: In Twilight Illusion the Great Alliance continues their search for a fitting suitor for the queen 4-5 PM as the Captain of the Guard shuts down the court festivities in order to get to the bottom of the Dark Prince’s plot. In Serenity the NeoVictorians celebrate their victory over the Soul-Eater 5-9 PM, their triumphant party DJed by Gabrielle Riel from Radio Riel herself!

On the deck of FaireChylde the Faire Folk just keep on rocking. We have four DJs for your dancing pleasure today: DJ Kenshin 11AM-1PM, DJ ColeMarie 3-5 PM, DJ AineMari 5-7 PM and DJ Gabrielle Riel who will be DJing for the NeoVictorians’ celebration!

Remember to visit Sapphire Mirror Lake to vote for your favourite King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire!
