LitFest Tours Part 14: Tales from Ardessa


Over the course of the Faire, Fairelanders joined tours of individual lands and told stories about them. These we are preserving on this website – and some will be made into special tales to be recorded for Fantasy Faire radio. We’re also going to share some of these stories here, and here are stories from the final tour, to Ardessa.

(Please note – these are the writings we have received to date. You can also read them on the Ardessa page here – where any further works inspired by Ardessa will be published)
