Fairelands don’t just happen. They are born of the talent, time and dedication of many people. The 18 Regions of this year’s Faire were built by some of the most brilliant, visionary artists in the virtual world or any other. Some of those have been part of the Faire for 12 years now. Some joined us in 2020 for the first time. Each played a vital role in making the 2020 Faire an experience that none of us will ever forget.
While Fantasy Faire Radio began this year with a tribute sets to the Regions, today we honor not the Fairelands that were created, but rather the creators of those Regions themselves. They are the reason why our One Vision found a home in Many Realms. They make us Stronger by giving us a place to be Together.
Here we are in a brand new year, and the distant rumblings of the re-emergence of the Fairelands can be heard distinctly in the not-so-distant future. So the FFR staff is taking a break from the off-season programming you have been enjoying since June, as we turn our sights towards preparations for this year’s Fantasy Faire.
In the meantime, we have some information to share on adjustments we have made this month that we believe will help carry you forward till Faire time:
Our 2018 radio drama broadcast of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and the 2019 Tales from the Fairelands are now available on Mixcloud – FantasyFaireRadioSL.
Beginning Monday, January 13th the broadcast rotation of Tales from the Fairelands will comprise selected episodes from 2016 – 2019: four Faires full of adventures. We hope that these inspired poems and stories will remind you of cherished moments from those years, and whet your appetite for what awaits you in late April.
If you were benighted, bothered, and/or befuddled by the grid failures that disrupted this Fantasy Faire Radio/Seanchai Library co-production when it aired back in October, here’s a great opportunity for you! We know that there are those who missed it that wanted to hear it, and more specifically who wanted to be there in Second Life to experience it live. This Sunday, December 29th, you can have your wish!
Seanchai Library is hosting an encore performance of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde at The Dickens Project on Sunday, December 29th at 2pm Pacific Time. You are invited to join us and cheer for Gabriel John Utterson as he pursues the mysteries plaguing his friend Dr Henry Jekyll, and be prepared to snarl back at Edward Hyde in equal measure. Or tune in to Fantasy Faire Radio.
