In this episode, we pay the second of our two visits to Fantasy Faire 2020 in aid of Relay for Life of Second Life.
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.
Silvasomnia (RFL CURE) was designed by Saiyge Lotus. It is sponsored by Jeanette’s Joint with additional support from Secrets of Gaia, the Ravenheart Museum, Eagle’s Photo Studio, Teegle, the Lost Unicorn Gallery, the Dark Unicorns of Lovelace, Trinity Clothing and Little, Big Designs. The official Fantasy Faire gachas along with numerous other RFL vendors from our sponsors are available for the weekend.

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.
As difficult as it is now to imagine, once upon a time there were no Fairelands.
There was no mysterious, mercurial island called Junction, no Bardic Order nor Queen to lead it. Worldmakers did not walk among us. Dragons did not carry ships aloft while people danced on the deck below. Once upon a time, there were not even tiny critters keeping the peace, brandishing the badge of the Fairelands Watch.
Inconceivable as it may seem today, once upon a time we were not Fairelanders.
Over the last twelve years, all that changed. How? How did we – all of us including you – bring about such a monumental change that we can now scarcely believe it was ever otherwise?
The simple answer is that we just decided to.
On the scale of one to gazillion, how much are you missing the Fairelands? Did you miss your chance of taking pictures of you on the Cool Bus? Have you never seen the Sacred Flamingos that are the first to land on the freshly emerged Fairelands every year? Is one of your Faire gachas incomplete?
Worry not, for some pieces of the Fairelands have landed on Fantasy Faire’s campsite at Relay Weekend, going on right now! Go dance with the flamingos, admire bus details, play some gachas and then go enjoy the rest of the Relay Weekend!
