Songs of the Faire 2020 – a Book for Relay for Life – and an Event!

Songs of the Faire 2020 and the Book Table on the Drifts of Anamnesis,
Songs of the Faire 2020 and the Book Table on the Drifts of Anamnesis,

Many people have been inspired by the Fairelands to take photographs or perhaps to write stories or poems.

Few though, have perhaps been as industrious as Banshee Heartsong, who was inspired to create more than sixty flash poems, and beautiful images to accompany them.

This book is now on sale in RFL kiosks by the book tables on Drifts of Amanesis and Ambigula, with all the money raised going to Relay for Life of Second Life.

And Banshee will be reading from the book, showing images and talking about her interpretation of inspirations at 3pm today, Thursday 7th May at the Place of Stories at Khawr Maksar on Drifts of Anamnesis.

Days of the Faire Banner Collection

Do you love the Fairelands? Do you wish you could simply buy Faire mementos of reasonable price without having to go into bidding wars or games of chance with gacha? We have a solution for you: The Days of the Faire Banners. Each banner was created by Alia Baroque to feature as the header of our website, and they showcase the splendor of the Fairelands of this year as captured by our talented photographers: Sunny Difference, Sachi (Vix Zhou), Caitlin Tobias, Adair (Nadjanator), Wildstar Beaumont, JustenTyme, Tamzin Xigalia and Sukubia Scarmon.

Since we have eighteen Fairelands this year and we are only on our twelfth day there will still be new banners to come. Check back daily all the way to May 10th.

The Days of the Faire Banner Collection is available at Ambigula

Her High Faireness’ Treasures Gacha 2020

Live Auction is approaching and various pieces of this year’s Fairelands are going to be auctioned off to new happy homes, but what about smaller mementos? Pieces of the Fairelands that don’t require you to own a region to rez it in, or a dragon hoard of linden dollars to win?

Worry not, we have those too! This year’s official Faire gacha – Her High Faireness Treasures Gacha 2020— will debut at the Live Auction! All the older Fairelands gachas will be available as well.

Gacha available at Ambigula.

Vote for the Rulers of Fantasy Faire 2020!

The nominations have closed and the top five nominations in each category have been decided. They cover a wide (not to say eclectic) range of fantasy genres and media: novels, graphic novels, films, TV shows and games are all represented, and a wide range of creatures for the Chancellor role.

Voting booths for the King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire
We have therefore set up the voting board on Ambigula, and there you will now be able to vote for your choice of King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire!

Sadly, there was one incident on which the Electoral Commission was forced to rule when it was discovered that not all of the nominees … were fantastical.

Strenuous enquiries were made into the reality (or otherwise) of these nominees and – sadly – several quite popular nominees had to be ruled out.

But a goodly selection remained (we had nearly 180 nominations this year!) so, without more ado, here are the candidates for King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire …
