LitFest Tour Wednesday April 29th 2020: Melusina’s Depths

The Company of Faire Folk rides out! Or walks, flies or (consults notes) swims – yes, the perfect place to swim – as is your preference. Because our Tour today takes us deep into the stunning watery blue of Melusina’s Depths.

Nestled between the highland hills and the sea, Melusina’s cobbled streets weave an enchanting maze past ancient castles, quaint shops, and taverns. Tales are told of a magical land of Mer-folk that lies below the city. Each night the townsfolk lock their doors tight against the eerie sound of the siren’s song. Melusina’s beauty will beguile you and her secrets will most certainly bewitch you.

Things to See:

The slide invites you to sink into the depths, but dare you venture to the realm of the mer-folk?

A temple of rose marble lies beside a garden of seaweed and crystal.

Hidden Secrets:

Caves of silver and blue crystals call you to explore.

Ruins long ago drowned beneath the seas, but sparkles of blue distract the eye.

Things to Ponder:

There are ruins here from other ages, but also buildings untouched by any stain.

Giant runes from what mystical temple?

Sea gardens, carefully tended and lit from below.
