The Silent Auction is an ongoing auction featuring plenty of one-of-a-kind items, enormous fatpacks, and rare deals.

The auction naturally benefits Relay For Life. Browse the auction, make your bids, and check back often to make sure you’re still the highest bidder! The auction board sends you a message when you’re outbid, but it is best to still check just in case to ensure you are still the highest bidder!

The Silent Auction takes place in The Dark Awakening.

The auction will end on Saturday, May 8 at NOON SLT.

Check out the current previews below!

The Film Festival at Fantasy Faire Starts Today!

The Film Festival will take place in Dragon’s Dreams on Líng xiāo lóng 灵霄龙

This year we are trying a new experiment at Fantasy Faire – a short film festival, grounded in Second Life and virtual fantasy films of different kinds.

We will be featuring films from popular Second Life machinima makers, and episodes from Second Life TV series with a strong fantasy element. The line up includes a Machinima Mondays session with famed machinimatographer, Chantal Harvey, a retrospective of the work of Loki Eliot, a hilarious web series from Phaylen Fairchild, and a showing the full length thriller STÖMOL by Huckleberry Hax, introduced by the film-maker – as well as Zander Greene being interviewed by Saffia Widdershins about his work as an actor in First and Second Life as well.

And we are very pleased to announce that after a gap of a number of years, the well-known creators of machinima, Phaylen Fairchild and Toxic Menges will be returning especially for Machinima Mondays!
