The Company of Faire Folk will be riding out! or What are the LitFest Tours?


Every day at 5 PM SLT the Company of Faire Folk rides out from our meeting place in Trollhaugen to explore the Fairelands, each day visiting a separate Land.

The Tours are led by Saffia Widdershins, with special music appropriate for each Land usually supplied by Nyza Stillwater (the opening day featured Music from ColeMarie Soleil, and on April 23rd and 24th by Astoria Luminos).

Even if you can’t make the Company Riding Out, you can still do the LitFest Tours and submit your stories and poems for inclusion on the website!

Visit to the Light of Va’loth

Light of Valoth

Greetings Fairelanders! Duchess here with some fantasy fashions that are available at Fantasy Faire 2019! My fae-ful friend, Kynne, joined me on the mystical sim, Light of Va’loth, that was designed and built by one of our favorite Second Life builders, Kilik Lekvoda of Titans and Solarium! Light of Va’loth is bathed in sweet hazy hues of amethyst and lit with brilliant rays of light emitted from the treasured Lady of Light. The stone structures are enveloped in tangled vines, shaded by ancient trees and relaxed by the sounds of the cascading waterfalls and babbling brooks. The sim is breathtaking and enticing and worth every second of your visit.

All Builders Together

by Elizabeth Tinsley, Zander Greene and Da5id Abbot

As we write this, Elizabeth’s chasing late-arriving merchants, Zander’s in studio producing pieces for FFR and David’s on top of a tower watching the check-in team working to help those merchants who’ve already arrived and set up their stores. It’s the Faire in a nutshell: everyone working in their own tasks to create a larger whole, and that again is a snapshot of Relay, which is a snapshot of the fight against cancer.

Last year, we said “We’re all builders now.” It’s still true: the Hope Hostel at Kenyatta National Hospital is almost ready to begin, and by the end of this Relay season we’re pretty confident that they’ll be ready to break ground, but we’re building – and we have built – more than a place for people to stay. We’ve built a home here in the Fairelands that we each take with us when the mists return and we go our separate ways for another year. We’ve built a dream of a better world – one where cancer is easily treated and where survivors and caregivers no longer have to face the struggles they do now.

Most importantly, though, we’ve built a community.

Memorial Gardens

Memorial Gardens

Today is officially the final day of Fantasy Faire however the Faire will be accessible until the sims fade away. This year’s Faire was an explosion of activity and with over 11 million linden donated to Relay For Life it was a huge success! If you have not had time to visit the event, or would like to visit the sim with a little less lag, now is the time! There are plenty of shops to visit for all your last minute shopping needs. The designers this year have pulled out all the stops to create magic in our divine world. I like to build little reflection areas on my sims that represent each Faire and these beautiful benches by Artisan Fantasy are the perfect sim decor for your Fantasy Fair 2018 memorabilia.

Each designer’s store has at least 2 official Fantasy Faire vendors with newly created items. The proceeds of these sales go directly to the total being raised for Relay for Life. So, hit these vendor boards hard. To make things easy for you, we have created a shopping catalog that showcases over 750 of these exclusive items on Pinterest!  And, if you’d like to shop by your favorite creator, here is a list of their locations on the various sims.

Items in the above image that can be found at Fantasy Faire:
Memorial Bench and Monument by Artisan Fantasy ~ Available at Fantasy Faire on the Aetherea Sim {Final Days, Sim still open until they are taken down}
Round Wildflower Garden – yellow and orange by Simply Shelby ~ Available at Fantasy Faire on the Willows of Nienna Sim {Final Days, Sim still open until they are taken down}

Haven of words – Halls of Story

The Halls of Story were a dream, a dream within a dream, or simply such stuff as dreams are made on. This was a land conjured up firstly by words. In the years that followed, by paint daubed on walls and gradually, over time, by ink until eventually its existence was woven anew by tiny squares of light grouped and shaped into characters which breathed life into the Halls.

Escape from Bazaar Dungeon

Waking up in the darkness was disconcerting. Eyes open or closed, at first it didn’t matter. At first, it was hard to tell if there was any difference at all. It took a little time, then gradually, the edges began to appear. The texture of cold stone, warm stone, dank corners and humid halls opened into an expanse of darkness, thin violet light glinting from the foxed surface of a giant mirror. This had been the way into the dungeon realm; now the reflections betrayed no door nor even whomever stood before it, only the shifting forms of the guards. Continue reading Escape from Bazaar Dungeon
