LitFest Tours Part 4: Tales from Egregore

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 fantasyfaireshortstory@gmail.com before 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!

Raising the Sun Over Fallen Sands


As the sun bakes down on the orange grains of Fallen Sands the elephants celebrate in the golden rays. Sunday in the eternal city is bustling with activity. The sim is dotted with a number of great Fantasy stores that are situated in a world where alien plants spring from the sands and water is a cherished resource. A few unfortunate souls can be found in various situations where the climate was not so kind. Giant mechanical birds loom overhead to scoop up these less fortunate, no doubt. If you have not had a chance to explore all of the sims, today is a good day to see as much as possible for the faire will be ending before we know it.

The Rose (Alia Baroque)
In the Garden of senses silent footsteps echo through rich vaults of opulence and decadence, searching for the perfect spot where a stolen kiss can be unseen and languid murderous thoughts hidden behind a mask. This Rose blossoms in April through your gaze that tells her how beautiful she is.

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.

Election Special! The state of the polls – Saturday am

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.

Roaming San Mora

According to the history logs, San Mora was once the center of prosperity with a thriving pharmaceutical center. The city was quarantined when a deadly contagion was released into the air; the event’s intention is rather unclear and there are many theories detailing that the catastrophic event could possibly have been perpetrated on purpose. The city was left without law or governance and the survivors of the contaminant ruled the land. The fires have long since burned out and it’s inhabitants scurry from shelter to make-shift shelter in the often deadly hunt for food.

Jaimy Hancroft, Eowyn Swords & Morbid Deceit are the brains behind San Mora which is sponsored by Death Row Designs.

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.

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?
