This year’s Fairelands Hunt – the Lost Land – sends you on a search for the Ten Champions chosen by the Bard Queen to mentor, protect and instruct her daughter, the Princess Flora.

Each day the Faire is running, we will be introducing you to a different Champion. They all have stories to tell … and some of these may give you clues to help you find them!

AUCTIONS

As always we are going to have a silent auction that lasts throughout the Faire in the Fairelands Junction: you can browse the items that are up for bid in there and already place your bid. The winners will be declared on Saturday, May 2nd, at 5PM SLT.

The live auction at the end of the Faire will see the traditional bidding wars over various actual pieces of the Fairelands themselves; come join the fun!

JAIL & BAILS

Another long-standing Faire tradition is freeing various wrong-doers (or innocent victims) of the decisive martial power of the Fairelands Sheriffs led by the Commandant Xavian Starsider. The tinies and their dinkie officer additions arrest criminals (often found amongst our world builders and creators) and hold them imprisoned until the Faire Folk has gathered enough ransom in the RFL kiosks to bail them out. Join in the fun, bring some tomatoes to throw!

DANCE & PARTICLE SHOWS

There will be several wondrous dance and particle shows in Poseidon’s Abyss, our Arts & Entertainment sim.

Our Silent Auction closes today Saturday at 5 PM SLT, make sure your bid is the winning one before that! The Silent Auction takes place in Fairelands Junction and you can window-shop beforehand here.

The Live Auction takes place tomorrow on Sunday, 4-6 PM SLT in the courtyard of The Palace of Tears. This is your one chance to take home a whole Faireland: Hope’s Horizon, The Faery Court and Wiggenstead Mooring are up for bid in their entirety, same as the Wizard’s Tower from the Palace of Tears hunt and many other marvelous pieces of the Fairelands.

Right after the Live Auction there will be the traditional Closing Party in the same spot, our way to say goodbye to the Fairelands of this year, to send them back to their own realm for a year to cocoon and slumber and then return to us the next year in a new shape. Come join us in waving goodbye and wishing them — wishing all of us — well.
