Daily Recap: Friday

Friday was possibly our busiest day of the Faire so far with several special events in addition to our already full schedule.

In the morning we had Drax Files Podcast interview and recording in Poseidon’s Abyss. Drax interviewed Her High Faireness Elizabeth Tinsley, our media and event organizer Saffia Widdershins, a sponsor Lorin Tone, a roleplay group leader Stevie Basevi and one of our official photographers, Alisaundra Andel. If you missed the event, you can catch the podcast right here at Drax Files.

In roleplay the Sanctuary RP called witnesses for prosecution in their Trial of Lut in the Spires of Andolys and the NeoLondoners held a party in Aurora, preparing to return home.

In Poseidon’s Abyss we had the Chang High Sisters joining our wondrous dance performance schedule for a one time show! “RFL Butterfly Strong” by JenzZa Misfit and “Fantasme” by The Night Theater filled the rest of Friday’s performance schedule.

In the early afternoon there was the Jail & Bail of Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods Inc., the builder of Odyssey. He was found tied in a mast of a kraken-ravaged ship near the shore of Odyssey and the Faire Folk had to decide whether he should be fed to a kraken or given to the sirens.

Voting happened through the RFL vendors, both of which had a different exclusive skin prize in them with a promise of release of bonus exclusive skin for sale should that side win. After plenty of pleading from the Faire Folk, the captured conjurer of magical creatures promised to release both bonus exclusives for sale if both RFL kiosks hit 75,000 lindens. Which they did. Easily. After that the Faire Folk continued to argue about his fate, the Team Kraken and Team Sirens both rooting for their favourite to the point that both kiosks reached easily over 100,000 lindens. In the end Alia Baroque was sentenced to be fed to the kraken, but he emerged triumphantly in the shape of Davey Jones with the said kraken now in tow and under his command. The whole ordeal did earn over 215,000 lindens to Relay For Life.

Soon after the last waves of the now tame kraken died down it was time for the May Day Masked Ball in Poseidon’s Abyss! DJ Gabrielle Riel of Radio Riel, our official media partner without whom you would not have the audible enchantment that is Fantasy Faire Radio, hosted the event. Haveit Neox had transformed the center stage of Poseidon’s Abyss into a marvelous ball room, complete with new statues and shapes. Even the Faire Flamingos were featured!

As the Faire Folk danced and enjoyed the evening, the results from the Voting for the King and Queen (and Chancellor) of Fantasy Faire were revealed. The voting had become a huge standoff between Girl Genius and Discworld, but in the end Discworld did a full sweep: Greebo as Chancellor, Havelock Vetinari as the King and Granny Weatherwax as the Queen. Now that is a form of government I’d like to see! Queen Zantabraxus of Skifander who was present at the Ball, seemed to take her loss to Mistress Weatherwax graciously, perhaps because she already has her own kingdom to rule. She commented on how the loss of Sir Terry had been a terrible blow to all and how the Discworld characters deserved their win. The whole of voting process relayed 153,660 lindens. That is fantasy royalty charity at its best!

Today we have another busy day for you as the last few days of the Faire are upon us! We have another Jail & Bail for you! That’s right, the criminal activity is reaching new heights!

At 11am-1pm we have Rynn Verwood, the Witch of Wildehaven Marsh, caught and on trial in Wildehaven Marsh! Come over to make sure she gets her just desserts! (Bring pies. Banana and cream.)

In the Literary Festival we have a busy day: 2-4am Cata Charisma reads fantasy favourites, 8-9am there’s a discussion about if fantasy is always about endings, 10am-12pm there’s Cold Shot Play Readers and Writers Open Mic and 2-4pm a Speculative Fiction Saturday. All the Literary Festival events take place in Sylvan of Spells.

Roleplay-wise we have the Rickety Weasels figuring out what is next to be done in their quest to save Poppetsborough. All the four Wells of Knowledge have been filled with charity and kindness, but yet the tears keep appearing. Join them 1-2pm in Poppetsborough to find out! In the Spires of Andolys the Lut’s Trial finally reaches its conclusion today at 2-3:30pm. Come hear the fate of the notorious founder of the city of Sanctuary!

In Poseidon’s Abyss we have the dance and particle performances “Fantasme” by The Night Theater at 12-1pm, “Dragons’nFairies’nFires~Oh My!” by Tansee and “RFL Butterfly Strong” by JenzZa Misfit at 4:30-5pm.

Greebo makes a late surge in the election for Chancellor … steampunks holding on for King and Queen

In the Fantasy Faire election, of course – voting for the King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire (aka your favourite fictional fantasy characters), Greebo the Cat (from the Discoworld Alliance, based on the books by Sir Terry Pratchett) is edging out Krosp, Emperor of Cats (from the Girl Genius Group, represented by characters rpom the gaslamp fantasy Girl Genius).

The gaslamp/steampunk challengers for King and Queen are still holding their own, although the Discworld candidates are still hanging in there, with the rest of the candidates some way behind.

But that could all change today!

Daily Recap: Thursday

Fantasy Faire 2015
Odyssey – Picture by Alisaundra Andel

Thursday brought us a busy day of roleplay, dance performances and our very first Questions & Answers session with our World Builders!

The Rickety Weasels found and filled the Well of Wisdom with the help of the Faire Folk, bringing their relayed amount to a total of 225,000 lindens since they began trying to save Poppetsborough. The Faire Folk has definitely filled the wells with charity and kindness!

The Origins of Sanctuary continued their Trial of Lut in the Spires of Andolys and NeoLondoners went on to recreate the event that had caused the curse in Aurora to see if that would undo the curse.

In the Literary Festival we had an Open Mic session, Tales of Fantasy and Faerie and a Good Omens discussion with Aoife Lorefield.

Poseidon’s Abyss held the dance performances “RFL Butterfly Strong” by JenzZa Misfit and “Fantasme” by The Night Theater.

The Questions and Answers session with World Builders started in Ichi-go Ichi-e and after a couple of hours of relaxed chatting on what it is like to build the Fairelands, something miraculous happened: a BUS appeared! And not just any bus, a LOBSTER BUS! (Sponsored by Lobster Inc.) The bus will be doing its irregularly regular rounds through the Fairelands. If you see it, hop on to enjoy the ride!
