LitFest Tours Part 4: Tales from Sanoria


Over the course of the Faire, Fairelanders are joining tours of individual lands and telling stories about them.

We’re also going to share some of these stories here, and here are stories from the fourth tour, to Sanoria.

Athenaeum Arcana (Beq Janus)

Legends tell of a grand library, hidden between our worlds; of archivists and adventurers dedicated to saving the stories that we weave; of vast dimensional portals tearing through the very fabric of reality; and of how at its height, through folly or foul play, it was destroyed. Now, for those lucky few that know how to find it, the once great Athenaeum stands frozen in time at the very moment of destruction. A crossroads between realities, the wildest most incredible bazaar any world has ever seen. Continue reading LitFest Tour Day 6: Athenaeum Arcana

The Story Well (Haveit Neox & Lilia Artis)

Horseshoe shaped island which rises from the ocean like a hill. Covered by bright houses and a castle at the summit with the look of a naive painting with primary colors. In the proximity of the castle is a well which is also the entry to the world below the sea, a realm of fantasy creatures.

In the far corner of the sim is the performance stage made out of rafts, nearly flush with the ocean. The audience seats are on sheets of paper that appear to be floating between the stage and the cave entrance at the base of the hill island. The hillside not facing the stage will have a harbor with the fantasy art galleries. Continue reading LitFest Tour Day 5: A Special Tour to the Story Well
