Official daily recaps during the Faire.

Daily Recap: Monday

Monday was our surprise extra event day! As you might remember, Faire Folk donated for an extra day of the Faire at the Lindens Jail & Bail and so we wanted to give them a party to celebrate their generosity and their love for the Fairelands.

We partied six hours at Opal Flight with the Fantasy Faire Radio DJs Elrik Merlin, David Abbot and Zander Greene.

The party was dedicated to the One Team Spirit of the Relay For Life of Second Life and we had invited six fantastic RFL Teams to come and Relay with us. They brought their own team’s donation kiosks, and the Fairelanders helped them reach closer towards their goals.

The magic of the Fairelands moved five teams to Rising Star: Core Charities, Hope Haven Heroes, Mieville Steampunks, Team Too Tough To Die, and Foundation For Life. Meli’s Maniacs only made Rising Star last night with a donation from their captain, but they are almost Bronze now. In total the Faire Folk raised 125 578 lindens in the name of these teams. That’s the Spirit of the Fairelands!

DJ David Abbot’s shift saw a certain challenge fulfilled: he had promised to wear a dress if the Fairelanders Relay 7 million lindens, and high heel boots if we get to 8 million. Mr. Abbot might be a demon, but he’s a demon of his word!

Fiercely fabulous David Abbot

David also made sure to pass the Torch of Fabulous onto Zander Greene, challenging him to make a similar promise next year. Make note, Faire Folk, next year we’ll get Zander in a dress! I think he’ll have to wear green, if for nothing else than name-symbolism. (Plus it’s clearly his colour.)

Silent Auction wrapped up during the party, making a lot of Fairelanders happy with their new shinies. Speaking of new shinies, the Fantasy Faire Hat Gacha has been a hit! If you don’t yet own your favourite one to flaunt throughout the year, go play! You can find the gachas for example in Opal Flight and at The FaireChylde in Kakushi Pasu.

Our official scheduled events are over now. Always a strange feeling when that happens. But sigh not so, Faire Folk, but be you blithe and bonny: Fantasy Faire stays open through May 4th! (Hey Nonny Nonny!) Quest is playable, shopping possible, exploring encouraged! Surprise impromptu parties might sprout up. Come and cherish the Fairelands for a few more days before they fade into the mists.

Fantasy Faire has relayed L$ 8,461,463 ($ 32,544) by the end of the twelfth day of the Faire. Keep up the fantastic work, Faire Folk!

Daily Recap: Sunday

The Rose – picture by Alisaundra Andel

Sunday, by long-standing Faire-tradition, holds all the big events.

We had an encore of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing by the Fairelands Players, and since the word had spread in a week, Opal Flight filled to 99 people and we had to do some quick saves to make sure everything was functional. A swift restart and enabling people to watch from Mudrana and Fallen Sands proved to be a good solution.

If you became an instant fan you might take note that “Hey Nonny Nonny“, the incredibly pawtastic song sung by the Tinies, is available for purchase in The Hill, Kakushi Pasu and Opal Flight. Surely this mp3 will be the best ringtone of the year!

After the play we had the last particle performance by Sky Fire, followed by the main event of the day: Live Auction!

This is the occasion we all are waiting for, the wrap-up of the year, the moment when we all sit down and are presented with the gems of the Fairelands, the crowning pieces of the realms that hosted us this year.

The Towers at the Live Auction

This year the total raised through the Live Auction was a staggering 1,016,277 lindens. This includes the Faireland sponsors throwing in a match of 50,000 lindens and half of the sponsorships for The Faireland Players. The other half is kept to create these actor avatars that can be used in our plays. The total relayed by Faire this year broke easily into 8 million with that, and the Faire isn’t even over yet!

All the Coolbuses in the pool of The Rose.

The highest bid of the Auction was Jaimy Hancroft getting her hands on this year’s Coolbus: It’s a Sweet Ride! The coolbuses are always sold off at the Live Auction, it’s the only way to get one for yourself. The bus rides are an extremely vitally important serious Faire-tradition since 2013 and if you haven’t been on one, you’re missing out!

At the end of the Live Auction we also declared the winners of this year’s Faire Royalty: King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire. The Faire Folk voted and chose to honor Severus Snape, Princess Leia Organa and Rhiow the Wizard Cat. Congratulations to the reigning monarchs!

After the Live Auction it was time for April Showers Ball, our traditional Masked Ball with DJ Gabrielle Riel of Radio Riel, our official Media Partner. This year the Ball was so popular that Opal Flight filled up immediately. We set up overflow parties on the deck of The FaireChylde in Kakushi Pasu and at the party field in The Hill, and partied in three locations at once! Good thing we don’t run out of fantastic places to dance in!

Although Sunday was originally scheduled to be our last day, the Faire Folk donated for an extra official day during the Linden Jail and Bail!  In fact, we have heard from a very reliable source that the Fairelands will stay open through May 4th! We welcome all of you to continue exploring and enjoying the Fairelands for as long as they stay connected to our realm. The Fairelands Quest continues to be playable for that duration as well.

Today, Monday 1st, we have our very last scheduled events.

Silent Auction ends 3 PM SLT in Opal Flight. Make sure your bid is the highest before that time!

Fantasy Faire 2017 Closing Party will last for six hours! Join us 1 – 7 PM SLT in Opal Flight! DJ Elrik Merlin, DJ David Abbot and DJ Zander Greene will make the Faire Folk dance and party in true Faire style! The Closing Party will also celebrate the One Team Spirit of the Relay For Life of Second Life and feature smaller RFL teams that have put their own Relay aside for this time, joining their efforts with ours to create a wonderful Faire.

Come join us for one more party to celebrate the Spirit of the Fairelands!

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

Daily Recap: Saturday

San Mora – picture by Alisaundra Andel

Saturday brought us another long-awaited jail and bail when known and always-repeating criminals Druscilla Ferraris and Clover Dezno were arrested and thrown into imprisonment! This caused an instantaneous tiny riot against the Pawlice, as it always does, but the Tiny Sheriffs were firm in their charges of littering, un-wafflesome substance use and streaking around the Fairelands in week-old-pink-panties. A confirming comment on Zander Greene’s part promised that this year’s evidence was better planted, proving that apparently the Pawlice has taken up gardening.

After all these years the Fairelanders had clearly grown dubious, and suspecting that perhaps the Terrible Two were indeed up to no good. New tactics were required and soon the jail included several of Faire execs, innocent bystanders and even Pawlice themselves! This raises perfectly good questions about the summoning magics involved, and should be written down for next year’s warrant!

Eventually the enraged Faire Folk put together a bail of 200,000 lindens to free the innocent dinkies and bunnies and maybe even the Pawlice (they are needed to protect the Fairelands). Oh, and as a side effect Clover and Druscilla got out, too.

The roleplay in the Fairelands wound to conclusion, several of the groups featuring DJs for their finales. The Lilypods in Mudrana invited the Faire Folk to apply the spirit of charity and cheer into breaking the Unweaver’s spell making the Frog King sick, and the Fairelanders answered the call, kicking the Unweaver in the teeth worth 154,000 lindens, which the Faire sponsors matched, making the hit a whole 379,000 lindens! He won’t recover from that for a while!

Sunday was to be our last official day according to the original schedule, but thanks to the Faire Folk’s generous donations at the Linden Jail & Bail, Monday is officially ours, too! In fact, we have heard from a very reliable source that the Fairelands will stay connected to our realms through May 4th!

That means that as long as the Fairelands stand, you are all invited to continue the Fairelands Quest, to shop and explore and enjoy to the very last moment!

Because Sunday was meant to be the Crown of the Week, it holds some major events.

There’s the encore of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing by the Fairelands Players in Opal Flight 10 – 11:30 AM. If you missed the first one, you have to catch this! If for nothing else than the tinies singing Hey Nonny Nonny! …which can be now purchased from RFL vendor, so you can own the best song of all time!

We also have our much-awaited Live Auction in Opal Flight 3 – 5 PM! This is the time when parts of Fairelands themselves and other unique, one of a kind items are auctioned off to the Faire Folk to have, to hold and to cherish. Wouldn’t you want to have a piece of the Fairelands in your home the rest of the year? So does everyone else, come outbid them!

The Voting for the new Fairelands Royalty: King, Queen and Chancellor will come to an end and wrap up by the end of Live Auction, too, so make sure to keep voting through it!

After the Live Auction we’ll have April Showers Ball 6 – 8 PM, still in Opal Flight where we clearly live most of Sunday! DJ Gabrielle Riel will play the party music as we celebrate the Fairelands.

We’ll also have the last particle show of the Faire-year, Sky Fire at 1:30 – 2:30 PM in Opal Flight.

The Literary Festival’s last events feature Performances by the Fiction Workshop 6 – 7 AM, Fantasy Writing Prompts 9 – 10 AM and the very last Region Tour to The Rose 12 – 1 PM. All of which will either take place or at least begin in Kakushi Pasu.

Come join us today for the biggest events of the Faire!

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

Daily Recap: Friday

Mudrana – picture by Alisaundra Andel

Friday is always a sneaky weekend-starter. One moment you’re still in a regular week-day and suddenly you’re zooming into the weekend!

Seanan McGuire returned to the Literary Festival and did a reading of her short story Lost, a captivating story of children vanishing mysteriously, a mix of Pied Piper with Peter Pan, full of enchantment and longing.

Otherwise the Literary Festival held Fantasy Writing Prompts and a Short Story Discussion group, and Region Tours to Chaddul Ro and The Spirit Pool.

There were dance performances on the stage of Opal Flight, DJ parties on the deck of The FaireChylde, roleplay across the Fairelands, even an OOC party of The NeoVictoria Project where they celebrated the conclusion of their storyline.

The main event of the day was of course the Jail and Bail of Alia Baroque, the creator of Fallen Gods Inc. and the world-builder of The Rose.  This year the Pawlice hadn’t so much caught him as stumbled upon the scene as The Rose herself had captured her gardener in sharp growing thorns.

Never ones to waste a perfectly good capture, the Tiny Sheriffs set out to list all the charges against Mr. Baroque, including but not limited to: not having enough body hair and turning people purple.

The Rose’s demands were, however, quite different. She wished to keep her control of the young buds, to glow in the sun just as she was, and keep the upstarts caged. It was up to the Faire Folk to decide whether the city would get her desire, or if the young roses would be liberated from cages to bloom free. After an intense struggle the Tyrant lost her hold, and the young roses were promised freedom to grow and bloom and preen in the daylight!

Each sufficient vote in the RFL kiosks gave the voting Fairelander an exclusive skin to reflect their choice, and this is also how the votes were tallied. Altogether by the end of the event the kiosks were around 360,000 lindens, but (and you didn’t hear this from me, it’s a secret!) they might have been (completely accidentally) left out for those who wanted a chance to get the exclusive skins, but couldn’t get to the event, and by the next morning the freed young roses had gathered 202,772 lindens and The Rose’s Tyranny 183,097 lindens, altogether 385,869 lindens. Well done, Faire Folk!

The Rose lost more than her hold over city, she also lost the captured Gardener, who transformed into his highest form to escape the thorns! (And to lead a conga and drive a bus.)

Our last Saturday of the year is naturally busy packed!

The event you don’t want to miss is the Jail & Bail of Clover Dezno and Druscilla Ferraris 8 – 11 AM at The Hill. These two tinies somehow always end up in trouble and get arrested by the Pawlice for… littering, drinking, running with scissors, forcing Faire sponsors into shotgun weddings, take your pick of the charges! Come see what they are accused of this time, and whether the charges will hold! Music for the court case is provided by DJ Gem Sunkiller.

In The Literary Festival we have The Poets’ Plunder 6 – 7 AM, Fantasy Writing Prompts 9 – 10 AM and Speculative Fiction with Simeon Beresford 1 – 2 PM. The LitFest Region Tours travel to The Spirit Pool 12 – 1 PM and to The Rose 6 – 7 PM and 8 – 9 PM. All the Literary Festival events take place in Kakushi Pasu, even the Tours gather there before venturing forth.

The sparkles keep flying in Opal Flight as the dancers stun and amaze Faire Folk! Today we have MaHal 7 -8 AM, Shadows Silhouettes 9 – 10 AM, ChangHigh Trinity Sisters Fireshow 11 AM – 12 PM, The Avilion Merballet Company 1 – 2 PM and Misfit Dance and Performance Art 5 – 6 PM.

While you are in Opal Flight, take a look at our Silent Auction located in there! Great deals and one of a kind items available for your bidding pleasure!

Saturday is the last day for our roleplay storylines. They wrap up their stories in exciting finales and complete their journeys, some of them even with a DJ to provide soundtracks and to party with!

Today finishing their adventures are 10 AM – 12 PM Ynys Seamaide at The Spirit Pool, 12 – 2 PM Outbreak at San Mora, 2 – 4 PM The Lilypods with DJ Zander Greene at Mudrana and 4 – 6 PM Sanctuary with DJ AineMari Flanagan at Raven’s Perch. We will also have our last roleplay class 7 – 8 PM at Fallen Sands.

The weekend just begun, come spend it in the Fairelands!

Daily Recap: Thursday

The Rose – picture by Alisaundra Andel

Thursday zoomed by surprisingly fast, how is it possible that the Fairelands have been here for a week already? They just arrived!

There were parties, there was roleplay, there was even a roleplay party as DJ Vasa Vella played for Steelwood’s roleplay at The Hill!

In the Literary Festival there were Fantasy Writing Prompts, a Poetry Surf and Monsters & Myths with Seanchai Library. The Region Tours traveled to San Mora and Chaddul Ro.

Opal Flight entertained Faire Folk not only with the usual stunning dance performances, but also with a special event where the world-builders of Opal Flight — Haveit Neox and Lilia Artis — shared the Story of Opal Flight with the audience. If you missed it, you can read it here!

Friday brings us an early start for our finale weekend!

One of the most anticipated events of the Faire somehow always turns out to be the Jail and Bail of Alia Baroque. Perhaps it’s the two exclusive skins he offers during the event, perhaps it’s the party music the exec DJs bring, or perhaps the Faire Folk simply enjoy seeing the creator of all the Incarnated Fallen Gods tied up, caged, imprisoned or otherwise bound in creative ways. Perhaps it’s the Lack of Shirt as Issued by Her High Faireness.

Regardless of reasons, the event takes place at 3 – 5 PM SLT at The Rose, the party music by DJs Zander Greene and David Abbot!

Before the Jail and Bail we have another amazing event to put you into fittingly fae mindset: Seanan McGuire will read her own work at the Literary Festival in Kakushi Pasu 1 – 3 PM SLT.

Otherwise the Literary Festival will feature Fantasy Writing Prompts 10 – 11 AM and Short Story Discussion Group 3- 4 PM. The LitFest Region Tours will travel to Chaddul Ro 12 – 1 PM and The Spirit Pool 5 – 6 PM and 8 – 9 PM.

The dance performances of the day include The Night Theater 1 – 2 PM, Misfit Dance and Performance Art 5 – 6 PM and Visualive Theatre Re:ON 10 PM – 12 AM. All the shows take place in Opal Flight.

The roleplay in the Fairelands takes place in six different Fairelands: 10 AM – 12 PM Ynys Seamaide at The Spirit Pool, 12 – 2 PM Steelwood at The Hill, 2 – 4 PM The Lilypods at Mudrana, 4 – 6 PM Sanctuary at Raven’s Perch, 6 – 8 PM The NeoVictoria Project’s OOC Party with DJ Gabrielle Riel at Anansi and 8 – 10 PM Outbreak with DJ Hazard at San Mora.

If you didn’t have enough partying with all of that, there’s also DJ Alsedel Llewellyn 9 – 11 AM at The FaireChylde and DJ Madonna Daehlie 1 – 3 PM at Raven’s Perch, come dance with us!

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

Daily Recap: Wednesday

Opal Flight – picture by Alisaundra Andel

Wednesday brought us Tolkien Day celebrations throughout the day! There was no better place for these events than The Hill by Kilik Lekvoda, which in itself is a remarkable homage to The Shire.

The Literary Festival moved almost completely to The Hill for the day, and started off with Tolkien-related fantasy writing prompts, followed by a live reading of both An Unexpected Party from The Hobbit and A Long-Expected Party from The Fellowship of the Ring, read by Caledonia Skytower and Dubhna Rhiadra.

The reading was a huge success, drawing together over 70 fantasy enthusiasts to simply listen and delight in the words of Tolkien.

After the reading it was time for An Unexpected Party, and for all the elves, dwarves and hobbits to dance! DJ Vasa Vella played party music and because this is the Fairelands, dragons, unicorns and even Sauron himself joined in! If you haven’t seen the Dark Lord of Mordor twerking, you haven’t partied properly!

In the evening Seanchai Library read selections from Tolkien’s work live in voice with the theme of A Walk through Middle Earth, and almost as to mimic this, we also had several LitFest Tours through The Hill to enjoy its peaceful beauty.

Otherwise the day went wonderfully with roleplay, dance performances and DJ parties on the deck of the FaireChylde. We also had a very successful LitFest gathering in Kakushi Pasu for Stories from Rosehaven, previously known as Winterfell.

Thursday has arrived surprisingly fast, it’s time to get busy exploring and questing if you haven’t yet!

In Opal Flight we’ll have two dance performances: The Monarchs 5 – 6 PM and Misfit Dance & Performance Art 7 – 8 PM.

In The Literary Festival we’ll have Fantasy Writing Prompts 10 – 11 AM, Wolfie’s Poetry Surf 1 – 2 PM and  Monsters & Myths with Seanchai Library 7 – 8 PM. The Literary Festival takes place in Kakushi Pasu.

There’s also a special event in Opal Flight 2 – 4 PM where the world-builders Haveit Neox and Lilia Artis present the Story of Opal Flight  to the Faire Folk!

The LitFest Region Tours will travel to San Mora 12 PM – 1 PM and Chaddul Ro 5 – 6 PM and 8 – 9 PM. The tours gather in Kakushi Pasu first before venturing forth.

Daily Recap: Tuesday

The Hill – picture by Caitlin Tobias

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.

In Opal Flight we have two dance performances to delight you: La Coquette Cabaret 6 – 7 PM and The Monarchs 8 – 9 PM.

The roleplay in the Fairelands takes place in four different Fairelands: 10 AM – 12 PM Ynys Seamaide at The Spirit Pool, 12 – 2 PM Outbreak at San Mora, 2 – 4 PM The Lilypods at Mudrana, 4 – 6 PM Sanctuary at Raven’s Perch There’ll also be a Roleplay Class at Fallen Sands 10 – 11 AM.

The DJs rock the party ship The FaireChylde with DJ Elrik Merlin 1 – 3 PM and DJ ColeMarie Soleil 7 – 9 PM, and in between the two DJ Vasa Vella joins An Unexpected Party at The Hill 3 – 5 PM for Tolkien Day celebrations!
