Daily Recap: Wednesday

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!

Daily Recap: Tuesday

Tuesday turned out surprisingly busy for the Faire Folk well know how fast the days fly by and how precious the time in the Fairelands is.

The Literary Festival started off with Poetry Prompt, followed by a rare chance for all the Game of Thrones fans, “Building Imaginary Worlds” with Linda Antonsson, the co-owner of Westeros.org and co-author of The World of Ice and Fire. Later on we had a special tour to OtherWorld with Elicio Ember, the world builder himself. In the evening there was a reading by Shandon Loring and Caledonia Skytower. The Region Tours traveled to Serenity and Dangarnon.

On the stage of Sapphire Mirror Lake there were two popular performances: The Misfits and The Monarchs. If you haven’t yet caught any of our magnificent dance and particle shows, you’re missing out!

The Great Alliance’s Suitors for the Queen storyline advanced in Twilight Illusion as the suitors lavished the queen with gifts.

On the deck and dock of FaireChylde, we had an impressive lineup of DJs: DJ Silverfox, DJ Madonna, DJ Martin Glom, DJ Nyza Stillwater and DJ Holocluck Henly.

During DJ Martin Glom’s party something shocking happened! The Tiny Paw of Law arrested Zander Greene, one of the Faire Executives! I am somewhat uncertain on what the charges were, but my trust in our Pawlice is unshaken: certainly he had done something to deserve it! At first the Faire Folk were encouraged to pay bribes bail into RFL kiosks to get him out, but soon this changed into paying to keep him in.

The next thing that happened is that an attractive female of assumed human race (this is the Fairelands, you never know if they are dragons in disguise) landed in his cage! At this point Alia Baroque, the world builder of The Golden Delta, decided to add a thousand lindens to the bail for every woman going into the cage with Mr. Greene. Commander OldeSoul Eldemar of the Tiny Sheriffs Association matched the bails to liberate the women afterwards, for surely they had done nothing wrong, quite vice versa! Our resident paparazzi, Alisaundra Andel, recorded the whole thing in her flickr stream.

The Faire Folk are known for their generous nature and the cage was soon full of women, raising the bail in total to over 40,000 lindens! Eventually the door was opened, and when that failed to make Mr. Greene leave his captivity, the whole cage was eventually destroyed to force him into freedom. “Best thing that happened to me in 8 years of Fantasy Faire, by FAR!” he was heard to say.

Monday passed by in happy wanderings as questers, adventurers and explorers truly started to get to know the lay of the land and be familiar with the Fairelands.

In the Literary Festival there was a Poetry Prompt for all who enjoy poetry writing challenges, and Sound of Poems where several well-loved poetry performers read their favourite fantasy poems. There was also a reading by Gyro Muggins (The Orphan by Charles Stallman) and Virginia from Innsmouth (The Festival by HP Lovecraft). The Region Tours traveled to Echtra and Serenity. As a special Literary Festival event of the day there was a trip to Sapphire Mirror Lake with its world builder Haveit Neox and his assistant Lilia Artis. They shared the legends created for the stunningly colourful Sapphire Mirror Lake with the Faire Folk.

On FaireChylde, our amazingly epic party ship carried by a dragon, DJs Lord of the Lamas, Magdalena and Nyza Stillwater kept the Faire Folk partying. There was also DJ Trader Whiplash’s Relay Rap as the Voice of Relay brought his weekly show about Relay community to the Fairelands! He talked with a host of Fairelanders, including her High Faireness Elizabeth Tinsley, and he also auctioned off a makeover for himself: one that he has to stick with for the rest of the Faire. Zander Greene won this privilege, and we are waiting to hear and see what he will come up with!

Sapphire Mirror Lake, beneath the surface

Sometimes it is good to be a bit clumsy! This afternoon I was admiring the wonderful artwork and Gallery in Sapphire Mirror Lake, the arts and entertainment sim, when I tripped over a rock (and lost a new shoe!) and fell in the water.

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sapphire Mirror Lake - II - Blogpost!

As I was trying to attach my shoe back, I ended up on the bottom of the lake. It is a good thing my mesh hair and new outfit are waterproof and once I got my shoe back on I realised I was lucky to have fallen ……Under the surface of this epic lake is a whole other world.  And another gallery with artworks!

Fantasy Faire 2016 - Underwater gallery @Sapphire Mirror Lake

Of course, normal – not clumsy – visitors will use the official entrance, but hey hoo…I thought I was pretty lucky to discover all the underwater-goodness and better: my camera still worked and I was able to make a video of it!

Have you been there yet? No, you say?! Oh come on…here is a Slurl!
