How many memories have been made in the Fairelands? How many friends have been found, dances shared, quests completed, amazing moments encountered? In a full decade? Countless.
Fantasy Faire has been a part of the annual cycle of our beloved shared grid for ten years. It has heralded the spring, brought with it fleeting wonders and breathtaking views, inspired imagination and hope for a decade.
This year we bring you the 10th Edition of Fairelands, ready to be explored, shared and enjoyed! There will be ten shopping sims, and five additional ones to feature the various events, quest and Literary Festival. For details about the Fairelands forming the continent this year, please read forward.
In this lovely machinima, ColeMarie Soliel has brilliantly captured a selection of the moments that made up Fantasy Faire, giving us all chance to remember the places and the people and the events that made up this year’s Fantasy Faire.
Over the next few days, we will be publishing stories and poems that were written in response to the different Fairelands and shared with us as a result. But we would still like to add your tales to our collection. So if you wrote a Tale of one of the Fairelands, and would like to add it to our collection, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org May 31st and we will add it to the relevant pages on the website. And we’ll be selecting some of the Tales for broadcast on Fantasy Faire Radio too!
With the Fantasy Faire 2017 nearing its end, we still have some days/hours to wander around the amazing sims and keep making memories of yet another wonderful event.
One of the things, the many things, I love from being part of the Faire is: you all. The Fairefolk. The elves, the dragons, the tinies, the monsters, the wizards, the humans, the furries, the poets, the builders, the hosts, the performers…..everyone. Without you all, there would be no Fantasy Faire.
I will miss the ongoing 24/7 groupchat, because even though I did not always actively participated in chats, I had the window open and read most of it.
The other night I had time to chat and somehow it ended in an impromptu Gangnam Style party on San Mora, thanks to all who showed up and danced with me!
One of my favourite memories of the Fantasy Faire 2017 was made that night and I have a video to prove it!
I will be around for as long as the Fairelands are here, so no goodbye yet from me, but a ‘see you on the Faire!’
Over the last week, Fairelanders have been joining tours of individual lands and telling stories about them. These we will be 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 Dawn’s Promise. Continue reading LitFest Tours Part 3: Tales from Dawn’s Promise→
In sensational news from the polls for the election of the King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire, Severus Snape has overtaken Willie Wonka !
Yesterday Willie Wonka was strongly in the lead. But now, Severus Snape has surged ahead!
In the race for Queen, Margo Hanson has consolidated her lead over Princess Leia Organa.
In the race for Chancellor, Hedwig and the White Rabbit are closing the gap on Rhiow the cat (who has gained NO votes since yesterday). Has the cat lost his momentum? We’ll find out tomorrow when the results are announced during the Live Auction.
Who will win? Only YOU and your Lindens (I mean votes!) can decide.
We will be visiting The Spirit Pool Friday, April 28th @ 5pm & 8pm SLT Saturday, April 29th @ Noon SLT
The Spirit Pool (Kayle Matzerath) Since the beginning of time, The Spirit Pool has served as a resting place for weary adventurers and lingering souls that are not quite yet ready to cut their ties to the physical realm. Mermaids and other seafolk use the pool for gatherings and a constant flow of visitors keep it a popular place for trading. https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com/the-spirit-pool/
Please note: you do not need to use any of these ideas; feel free to write about anything in this region.
Do souls really linger here, or is it a myth to cull the gullible?
What creatures roam these endless halls?
What feeds the yellow vines?
What lives in the mysterious cavern?
Participants are invited to submit pieces written as part of LitFest Tours, or inspired by the Faire Lands, to be included in “Tales from the Fairelands” on the Fantasy Faire website and possibly to be read on Fantasy Faire Radio by yourself or one of our volunteers.
Work may be submitted at any time during the Faire, and we recommend that it be submitted by 11pm the day after each destination cycle has been completed in order to be considered for inclusion in “Tales of the Faire Lands” posts while the Faire is open. Individual writers retain creative ownership of works submitted.
