Welcome adventurers to the tabletop programming section of the Fantasy Faire website. Here you will find all information pertaining to our events that are being hosted at the Faire. Please note that much of this information is subject to change as needed, so it’s important to come back here prior to the starting of an event. If you have any questions, you may contact one of our staff members (listed below) pertaining to your specific question subject. Otherwise, you may contact the Tabletop Games Event Director, Nyza Stillwater in-world through notecard, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through Discord: Nyza Stillwater#1527
Since 2018, The Virtual Tabletop Gaming Society has organized Tabletop Programming at Fantasy Faire. The event would not be possible without the dedicated staff and event volunteers who step up every year to bring this unique form of entertainment to the Faire and to Second Life. Games in particular provide a unique opportunity for players to come together to tell a story while having a good time. Much like a band of nobles who gather to solve a monarch’s murder mystery of the lord, or novice adventurers that dive recklessly into a cave that promises treasure, games spark the imagination, and everyone contributes to the team effort regardless of their overall abilities.
In 2018, Nyza and Kitori started things off in “The Bazaar Dungeon”, hosting well over 40 hours of entertainment, and being able to raise over 25,000 Lindens.
In 2019, “story-altering powers” were added which allowed all members of the audience the ability to alter the story or add some unique flair to a game session. Such powers may come in the form of granting player character’s new abilities, sudden and unexpected celebrity encounters, dice re-rolls, and so on. There was also a unique public auction that consisted of many real-life products up for grabs from well-known tabletop publishers. There was also the “Choose the Villain” contest devised by Kitori for her game campaign. Over 35,000 Lindens was raised in 2019, and Tabletop Central was located on two sims: and Thornfast (that year’s Quest Sim) and Tensors’ Flying Market.
In 2020, despite the hardship of the COVID-19 global pandemic, Tabletop Central was able to raise nearly 100,000 Lindens. New for 2020 was the inclusion of tabletop classes and the “Milestones” event, which allowed talented creators to join together with the tabletop community to offer some gifts to donors who helped fundraise for Tabletop Central. In 2020, Tabletop Central was located on the sim Lamented Fens.
For 2021, much of what has made Tabletop Central successful in the past will return, with a few modifications. Advanced registration will be offered to allow players to secure their spots. The Milestones incentives are planned to be expanded upon even greater this year. Our home in 2021 during Fantasy Faire will be at Scrimshaw Warrens.

Chuu is also the creator of Mini A Chuu’s Tabletop Dioramas compatible with /studioDire/’s Tabletop System and the photographer who is taking a commission on cardboard miniatures in exchange for a donation to Fantasy Faire Relay For Life.
