THE FAIRELANDS HUNT: THE LOST LAND
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!
Read The Book of the Champions to find out more!
THE LITERARY FESTIVAL
Story-telling, discussions, workshops, Meet the Author and more! Bring your own fantasy tale or poem to our Open Sessions! Look out for Pratchett Day:Tuesday 28th April.
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.
This year, for the first time ever, we will be hosting a very special May Day Ball on Friday May 1st from 5pm – 7pm SLT.
