Over the course of the Faire, Fairelanders are joining tours of individual lands and telling stories about them. 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 the eighth tour, to the Pools of Ethuil.
(Please note – these are the writing we have received to date. You can also read them on the Pools of Ethuil page here – where any further works inspired by the Pools of Ethuil will be published)

In this lovely machinima, ColeMarie Soliel has brilliantly captured a selection of the moments that made up Fantasy Faire, giving us all chance to remember the places and the people and the events that made up this year’s Fantasy Faire.
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.
