Greebo makes a late surge in the election for Chancellor … steampunks holding on for King and Queen

In the Fantasy Faire election, of course – voting for the King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire (aka your favourite fictional fantasy characters), Greebo the Cat (from the Discoworld Alliance, based on the books by Sir Terry Pratchett) is edging out Krosp, Emperor of Cats (from the Girl Genius Group, represented by characters rpom the gaslamp fantasy Girl Genius).

The gaslamp/steampunk challengers for King and Queen are still holding their own, although the Discworld candidates are still hanging in there, with the rest of the candidates some way behind.

But that could all change today!

Have you voted yet?

As of Friday morning, the voting accumulation looks like this:

Vote for the King!

FF-KING1-BKWulf6327 votes FF-KING2-GILGA350 votes FF-KING4-HAVELOCK4380 votes
FF-KING3-LEGOLAS1310 votes FF-KING5-TYRION1125 votes

The Baron has maintained a wide margin in the King election over the Patrician.  The other candidates have a lot of ground to catch up.

Vote for the Queen!


Queen Zantabraxus of Skifander (our apologies for the mis-spelling on the poster – please don’t have us executed your Majesty!) is maintaining her comfortable lead over Granny Weatherwax.  Can the witch from Lancre make up lost ground? Will Maleficient make a leap forward?

Vote for the Chancellor!

FF-CHANC4-GENIE251 votes FF-CHANC2-GREEBO4708 votes FF-CHANC1-KROSP2715 votes

And Nanny Ogg’s famed (and feared) cat, Greebo has leapt into the lead over Krosp, Emperor of Cats and the other candidates. Can he maintain that lead as the elections hots up?

Which will you vote for?

You can visit the vendors and place your vote in a special gallery under the waves at Poseidons Abyss.

OR you can pay via Convio.

Remember – the final voting and the resultys will be taking place at the Masked Ball on Friday 1st May!


Memorial Wall at Poppetsborough

Memorial Wall in Poppetsborough – Picture by Alisaundra Andel

This year Fantasy Faire has a very special memorial wall in Poppetsborough, the popup book world. A frail paper laundry line hangs near the central pond, at the edge of the book land. Next to it is a RFL gotya machine. Gotya is RFL’s version of gacha machines. You pay the machine 10 lindens and it gives you one of the dedication letters that you can hang on the line and personalize to dedicate it to whomever or whatever you wish. All the money from the gotya machine goes naturally to Relay For Life.

Visit Poppetsborough to add your own dedication letters on the line.
