The Faire is brimming with stories: breathtaking builds and fantastical creations designed to touch your heart and soul. What stories do they inspire in you? We invite you to put your Fantasy Faire experience into words.
Falls of Hope (Sweetgwendoline Bailey and Eldowyn Inshan)
Cliffs rise high above, with bridges to provide a path for travellers between the caves that have been adopted by intrepid traders. Around them, waterfalls and plants that hang towards the floor where, again, more caves provide a home for delights brought by travellers from far away. The whole, then, becomes a rising gallery of water and vegetation, lush and tranquil.
The Falls of Hope are based on the idea that the hope will rise up in every single part of life. Like the dust that spread up when the water crashed down, or with each single flower blossom that dances through the wind, with the butterflies and the doves from Thyrael of Hope or just the little bird on the finger of one forest keeper.
Seeds of Story
These are suggestions. Be inspired by this land and write what you desire.
The gateway to a world where dragons once roamed, but now their remnants have been recycled! Dare you tread the tangled vines? This place is of the Earth, where might the Guardians be?
A wonderful mix of stark and colour. Launch yourself by zip line to the main store. What befell the dragons here?
Dragon toes become a shop, claws swathed in flowers, who worked top transform this place and how did they manage it?
Look closely and the Guardians are still here, one melded to the tree and supporting a bird.
Did this Guardian fall asleep and become one with his creation? Why?
