A Thank-you from the Role-players

The Fairelands have disappeared beyond the Veil and into the Mysts, but Junction abides.  Though this chapter ends, another will begin when the Faire returns. New stories and quests will await those searching for a way to fight back against the Unweaver.

Faire invited Roleplayers to begin telling their stories in 2014.  Eight Faires worth of adventures which still move those who joined the tales now. 

Every year the storytellers gather around a campfire to share their yarns.  Children help quest hunters to find their birds in between adventures.  The role-players share the lore of the realms we call home. Victorians greet others over tea or coffee.  Game masters invite players to roll the dice.  We even provide classes for those new to the idea of role-play and of course curious onlookers, chroniclers and photographers are always welcome to drop in to have a look.  

No one in 2014 could have expected that Role-players would raise 2.5 million Linden Dollars in 2020.  None of us would have dreamed of hitting that total again!  L$2,554,596 was raised for charity in the name of role-play in 2021!

And so, once again, the role-players must thank the Fairelanders who joined us throughout the years. Thank you for staying with us through the highest peaks, and the lowest darkness. Who trusted us to see the stories through despite times when tears flowed the night before the finale.  And those who shed tears of joy when we succeeded in driving back the Unweaver for now.  

We will return; determined to do even better next year, as we do every year. And with that, the final words shall go to the Bards themselves:

“The Faire is a celebration of the power of Story and of the Fantasy Role Play communities of Second Life. That we are also a venue for such groups to come and share with us their incredible talents for storytelling, and that in doing so they speak to the themes of Relay For Life speaks volumes in itself, for these are things that the Faire would not be the same without. They remind us just how much we have to Celebrate. They give us a space where it is safe for us to Remember. And they show us that together we can Fight Back against the Unweaver until no one ever again need fear hearing the words, ‘You have cancer.’ For all that, and for their companionship along the way, the Faire is eternally grateful.”

The History of Fae by ColeMarie Soleil – Today!

ColeMarie says:
I will be giving an hour long class today at 11 am SLT at “The Wandering Woods” @ Fantasy Faire

We will be discussing folklore, fae realms, historical faerie tidbits, talking about the various magical things that make up the mystical world of faeries! I am pretty sure I know what I am doing, maybe. So come join us for a little bit of fun, a little bit of avatar watching/inspecting, and I’m sure lots of laughs as I pretend to be super serious for an hour!

What could go wrong?!


Friends, we’ve come to the end of yet another Fantasy Faire season, our 12th in fact, as the magic of the Fairelands begins to fade once more into the mists. We brought you classes on how to breathe life into your fantasy role plays as well as create your perfect roleplay environment. We did our very best to bring you stories written by those who love roleplay and find joy in performing them for you. I thank our wonderful spinners of yarns, and the teachers who were kind enough to share with us their wisdom.

Last year, the Roleplay section was thrilled to have raised L773,401.00 or 3070.54 American dollars. It was more than we’d ever raised before. This year, I am so proud and humbled to say that between the wonderful roleplay groups and the very gifted teachers who graced our classrooms, we, the Roleplay section raised a grand total of L2,543,194 or 10,174.77 American dollars! You all were generous beyond words and we thank you, thank you so very much for your kindness and unwavering support as we did our best to attempt to defeat the dreaded Unweaver.

Thanks to all who attended our events. We hope that you enjoyed them, and thank you for supporting this most important and worthy cause. Once again, you are all amazing and we hope to see everyone again next year!

With much gratitude,
