The Anniversary of the Mouse is being celebrated today from 1 to 3pm SLT in Poppetsborough.
The Weasels, the Guardians, and the Poppets will gather to share tall tales about the world of Poppetsborough and how it all began for them. Their accounts may conflict, but come and get lost in the world of Poppetsborough for a short time, and hopefully no more terrible holes will appear in our world as we do.
Judge Maleficent did again cast a spell for truth and honesty to be told on this day, a spell that would take them into the past, for all to see with their own eyes, the Sultan, his citizens, and their wicked ways. The angel Apollyon was visited upon them, making a judgment to take back to God, upon Sanctuary which was then called Sodom. That judgment included debauchery, monsters and magical beings, lawlessness, and basically impenitent sin. Unfortunately, Lut seemed to be much more interested in taxing the brothel whores and finding a cure for penile lesions.
The scene begins in NeoVictoria as the NeoLondoners make the trip to Aurora. They arrive in Aurora and set up the bride in the Cathedral. She remains there as they fan out to learn about the city and find the groom.

You might catch them roleplaying in the Fairelands: feel free to join in! There are also scheduled roleplay sessions when something important for the storyline takes place.

Sunday, April 26th, 11:00am – 12:00pm: Origins of Sanctuary: Lut’s StoryThe Sanctuary Amazons will be on hand today at the Spires of Andoyls providing insight into Lut’s deeds from the point of view of the women of the city, how he strayed from his original goal of providing safety to those he’d sworn to protect, those skilled in the dark arts of magiks. The Amazons carry on that spirit by defending the Sultan’s original goal for Sanctuary as a haven for those beings. Are you one of the dark ones? Come and listen to their tales! You may be forever changed! Location: Spires of Andolys
Beginning on 15 April in NeoVictoria SIM, they will bring their story of love and redemption to the Fairelands on Friday, 24 April, when our intrepid band of roleplayers land in the winter-city of Aurora!
Promo for “White Wedding”
Cursed to bring winter wherever he goes, a despairing fae scientist flees the Sidhe empire for Aurora. But fate and love are not so easily abandoned. The shade of his human wife seeks the help of the NeoVictorians and they bring her to the Fairelands, to find her spouse and end the curse.
Once again, the long battle for control of Sanctuary is over and the tyrant Lut has been imprisoned. Now that the dust has settled, the people demand justice. The perpetrator of all our suffering shall be brought before the people for judgement and the origins of the city of Sanctuary shall be revealed.
Long ago Lut, the Sultan of Sanctuary, made a deal that that tore the realm from God’s judgment. This deal Lut has never had to answer for until now. The dark Sultan will be placed before judgment for this deal he made. Will he be found innocent and justified, or guilty and be destroyed because of it?
Did Lut act in the best interest of the people in order to save their humanity and his own, or did his rebellion against the wishes of God serve his own dark and twisted purpose? The city’s dark secrets shall be shown for all to see and sad tales shall be told, but one thing is for certain, Sanctuary will never be the same again!
Long ago in an ancient Library cared for by an old man named Jack, a mouse climbed atop a mountain of books and sneezed from all the dust. The mouse fell into Jack’s hands safely, but up above something unexpected and wonderful was happening. A book had opened and a world of paper was being created along with a race of paper beings known as the Poppets.
Jack was delighted and surprised by the many magical things he found in this new world, including a small paper train which took passengers between worlds despite travelling only in a circle, people from other stories and lands seemed to visit this strange new world, though some were friendlier than others.
The Poppets were kind but frail just like their world, and Jack did his best to assist and preserve it. He had unexpected allies from Beryl Strifeclaw and Avariel Falcon, the Guardians of Earth and Air in the Fairelands, whom would visit often and brought children to defend this world of imagination and wonder.
But now tears and holes are appearing in the pages of Poppetsborough, which are corrupting the stories with wickedness and drawing others into nothingness. Is the magic failing? Is some force attacking Poppetsborough? Can a way be found to reverse this before Poppetsborough disappears forever? The Rickety Weasels and their allies will do their best to discover the answers to save Poppetsborough from unravelling.
You may remember that three suspects were detained for the gruesome murders in Mourningvale Thicket and, on Saturday, Fairegoers had a chance to question the suspects and then to pay Lindens to vote on their innocence or guilt. You can read about it here.
After much investigating (and much arguing) the good citizens who gathered for the unmasking of the murderer finally saw the shapeshift of the arrogant and murderous Baron Giles De Rais into Barron, the demon that he raised. The people had voted and had – fortunately – got it right. (Nearly 8k was raised for Relay for Life just on this event! Thank you all so much!)
The other suspects were Belial and Maleficent, both guilty of many things, but not of being the serial killer. The Baron /Barron has (have?) been sent off for 100 years of torture in the jails of Sanctuary. Hopefully he does not escape too soon!
But … you never know!
The Sanctuary Roleplayers who created this wonderful event say:
“We of Sanctuary RP sims loved coming to the fair and playing out the mystery with you and hope to see some of you come visit us some time!”
