In 2020 COVID-19 shook the world, bringing with it sickness and death across the globe and bringing life for many to a standstill. What it didn’t stop was cancer. With the medical advances of science and technology a vaccine has been made to fight COVID-19, but for all the years cancer and its many strains have been around, there is still no definitive cure. The best hope is early detection.
In 2020, Banshee Heartsong decided to create live written poetry for the Fairelands. Her plan was to write on each sim and to be as inclusive of as many people as she could. “This is important,” she says, “because other people and the beauty of the worlds built turn lights on for me that would never occur otherwise.”
This year we have a nineteenth Faireland, present only during the Relay Weekend on the track. Come wander the slumbering forests, almost ready for their annual rest within the Mists, come meet other Fairelanders, finalize your Faire shopping, and enjoy the touch of peace the Fairelands always bring — before you’ll head out for another lap on the track.

There’s no other word for this year’s Faire: it’s been astonishing. As we enter the Fairelands’ final few days, we wanted to thank each and every one of you for the remarkable things we’ve all accomplished together. It’s a dark time in the Outworld, but here in the Fairelands you’ve shown us that the light of hope is stronger, brighter and more powerful than ever.
