Finding Details in Astrid’s Nemeton

Throughout the Faire Realms, we find so many beautiful things to experience. This Faire Season, I have discovered places both beautiful and magical. Of course, our lives are filled with things beautiful and magical no matter where we are, but Faire Season brings all these things to the forefront.

Reflecting on the magical

Reflecting on the magical details we always find in the Fairelands made me think of the place that’s been our home for the last week, Astrid’s Nemeton. So I walked about and did just a little bit of exploring.

LitFest Tour of the Story Well: A Tale and a Challenge!

When we visited the beautiful region of the Story Well (home to the large performance space, art galleries, the silent auction and the voting board for the election of the King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire), the region creators, Haveit Neox and Lilia Artis, met us with a story.

Well, it was two stories … the first was how they created this amazing and lovely region, full of astonishing hidden treasures …

And the second was the tale of two children who lived there.

But that was a tale that had no end …

Draw close, and listen carefully.

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. These we will be preserving on this website – and some will be made into special tales to be recorded for Fantasy Faire radio. We’re also going to share some of these stories here, and here are stories from the fourth tour, to Sanoria.

(Please note – these are the writing we have received to date. You can also read them on the LitFest Sanoria page here – where any further works inspired by Sanoria will be published) Continue reading LitFest Tours Part 4: Tales from Sanoria

LitFest Tour Day 6: Athenaeum Arcana

Join us for our regular Literary Festival Tour today at 5pm SLT as we tour the stunning Athenaeum Arcana (created by Beq Janus).

The Faire is brimming with stories: breathtaking builds and fantastical creations designed to touch your heart and soul. What stories do they inspire in you? We invite you to put your Fantasy Faire experience into words.

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
