Election Special! The state of the polls – Saturday am

In sensational news from the polls for the election of the King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy Faire, Severus Snape has overtaken Willie Wonka !

Yesterday Willie Wonka was strongly in the lead. But now, Severus Snape has surged ahead!

In the race for Queen, Margo Hanson has consolidated her lead over Princess Leia Organa.

In the race for Chancellor, Hedwig and the White Rabbit are closing the gap on Rhiow the cat (who has gained NO votes since yesterday). Has the cat lost his momentum? We’ll find out tomorrow when the results are announced during the Live Auction.

Who will win? Only YOU and your Lindens (I mean votes!) can decide.

Roaming San Mora

According to the history logs, San Mora was once the center of prosperity with a thriving pharmaceutical center. The city was quarantined when a deadly contagion was released into the air; the event’s intention is rather unclear and there are many theories detailing that the catastrophic event could possibly have been perpetrated on purpose. The city was left without law or governance and the survivors of the contaminant ruled the land. The fires have long since burned out and it’s inhabitants scurry from shelter to make-shift shelter in the often deadly hunt for food.

Jaimy Hancroft, Eowyn Swords & Morbid Deceit are the brains behind San Mora which is sponsored by Death Row Designs.

The Spirit Pool (Kayle Matzerath)
Since the beginning of time, The Spirit Pool has served as a resting place for weary adventurers and lingering souls that are not quite yet ready to cut their ties to the physical realm. Mermaids and other seafolk use the pool for gatherings and a constant flow of visitors keep it a popular place for trading.

Do souls really linger here, or is it a myth to cull the gullible?

What creatures roam these endless halls?

What feeds the yellow vines?

What lives in the mysterious cavern?

Over the last week, Fairelanders have been 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 Raven’s Perch.

Election Special! The state of the polls – Friday am

In the elections for King, Queen and Chancellor of Fantasy, things are starting to heat up, with the competition tightening particularly in the race to be Queen.

As I write this, a mere FIVE Lindens (oops, I mean votes) stands between Princess Leia Organa and Margo Hanson.

And in the race for Chancellor, Rhiow the cat is being hotly pursued by Hedwig the owl and, a late starter, the White Rabbit. We’re expecting some fur and feathers to fly there!

Willie Wonka still holds onto his lead in the race for King but Severus Snape (who many of you may remember was pipped at the post last year by The Goblin King) is starting to put in a strong showing.

Who will win? Only YOU and your Lindens (I mean votes!) can decide.

Chaddul Ro (Searlait Nitschke)
An outpost of the Orcs of Chal Khizzur, Chaddul Ro stands on the edge of their territory. In the center of the outpost there is a beacon, rising above upon a tower guarded day and night by the orcs. It stands for strength; it stands against anyone who would douse it, a symbol to be seen to guide those from outside the protective barriers and walls back home. For the survivors that seek refuge from battle. It is believed that as long as the fires of the outposts are kept lit that there is always hope, sanctuary to be found and that the tribe remains strong.

What did they kill to get those giant tusks? Monster Orcs?

Where did all the Orcs go to? And … will they return?

Is everyone Orcish here, or are a few miserable prisoners lurking?

Imagine the smell of hot, sweaty Orcs!
