Fantasy Faire, a very cool and fun Relay for Life of Second Life Fundraiser, just opened its doors to the public today! Fantasy Faire brings together the various fantasy sims, roleplying groups, merchants, and more for your amusement and enjoyment!
On the official Fantasy Faire blog, they have a new press release, which includes slurls and blurbs about each of the Fantasy Faire sims. Photos of each sim is also posted! Below is the press release and make sure you delve into fantasy today!
The magic portals to the Fairelands are finally open and all the adventurers, guests and visitors are welcome to come and share the enchantment!
The Fairelands consists of ten sims, all connected together so you can trek from one to another and admire the fantastic views. Eight of the sims are dedicated to shopping, one is the final destination of the upcoming Key of Hope hunt and one is the Fairelands Junction with portals to all the others.
FAIRELANDS JUNCTION (Saiyge Lotus) – SLURL
Fairelands Junction hosts portals to all the other sims and will also be the place for the auctions during the Faire. Do not be in a hurry to rush out of the Junction, take your time to explore the breathtaking forest in peace.
The field of Oblivion will be built as a homage to Stephen King’s “Dark Tower” series, and will feature a central, gothic and ominous dark tower, in a wide open field of overgrown thorns and scarlet red roses. The stores builds will hint at the long-gone remains of similar gothic structures, roof-less, with time-eroded stone walls entwined in overgrown rose thorns.
Resting in the treetops of is the elven enclave of Yuale Nura. Bathed in moonlight, the homes glow warm in the deep blues and purples of a winter’s night. A light dusting of snow gives the impression of undisturbed slumber, but perhaps all is not as quiet as first impressions suggest.
The spirit world touches the material plane in this garden of bonsai trees and waterfalls surrounding an ancient pagoda. With such mystical elegance everywhere you look, this is a place to still your mind and connect with the magic within.
A vast City with lots of colorful houses, shops and a huge castle where the main streets meet. A tribute to the sun and all the golden harmony it brings, the city of Lumenaria is a beacon of hope to any who seek refuge from the dark.
The Relay Royales kindly invite you to their summer palace and gardens for a week of divertissment, plays, games and leisure to Celebrate Life and Magnify our Souls.
Where beauty has lost its perfection to a collection of twisted shards reflecting the wondrously literalistic minds of Burton, Pratchett, and Dahl. The lands will be distinct. The shops anything but square, and some may even have feet! Be warned. It’s funky, it’s fun, and it’s anything but straight!
A barren land of stone and crystal, hiding its lavish secrets beneath the shell of the earth. The native Goblins, Drow, Dwarves and Nixies reside in the fruitful tunnels, lorded over by a Dragon and his horde. Veined with phosphorescent ores, freshwater streams and exotic fungi, these deep caverns hold remnants of a lost civilization.
The cliff city of Caras Calar dangles high above ground, suspended from the fickle rock formations. The Structures are made of a filigree of crystal, wood and metal, and hung with gigantic chains from the columnar cliffs giving the appearance from below of huge floating lanterns. The sunken valley over which the city hangs is forested with strange vegetation and irrigated from waterfalls plunging from the sheer cliffs. Legend has it a battle between ancient gods created this strange scenery.
VALLEY OF ISH’NAR (rynn Verwood) – SLURL
The Valley of Ish’Nar will host the latter part of the Key of Hope Quest, which will be an immersive story driven HUD based hunt in two parts. The first part involves exploring the Faire sims and collecting an item from each of the shopping sims. When the first part of the hunt is complete, players will receive a bundle of unique gifts created by our sim designers commemorating the sims and FF2013. In addition to the gift basket, players will receive a second HUD that allows them to continue the adventure on our Hunt sim, the Valley of Ish’Nar.
This second part of the hunt is full of puzzles and quests that must be completed, but the reward is big for not only does the player become the hero of the story, but when he saves the day he wins access to the treasure trove of all your gifts.The hunt is being made in association with Madpea Productions and will actually extend past the Faire and run through May 21. It will be an adventure that I hope all of you will be able to join us on!
Now what are you waiting for? Come join us at the Faire!
