A Breeze-y Day

Breeze SimN’Mara grinned as she came into an almost cartoon-like town. It’s bright colors and blue skies was a wonderful change from the dreary dank of the last town. There were layers of hills and a big social area near the center with many tables and seats. She saw more posters advertising shows and literary events, as well as the same poster talking about the quest that she had seen in all of the towns.
Breeze Shops
As she browsed the shops she saw more tiny creatures than big. A little purple panda floated nearby hanging from some balloons. She paused and watched it for a moment and saw that the balloons were connected to a backpack on the tiny pandas back. She smiled as it bounced along in the air.

On a raised stage kind of area in the middle of town she saw a crowd of tiny beings as well as a few humans and elves. She ascended the stair and smiled at the sight of the tiny fairy performing for the crowd. She was enjoying all of the little entertainers she kept stumbling across in each town. The fairy was singing a tale of an fae queen’s romance. N’Mara sat behind a couple rows of tinies and listened in wonder. The fairy’s voice was amplified so all could hear easy and was a beautiful pure sound. When the fairy was done everyone clapped and cheered as she curtseyed and echoing the same sentiments about donating to the kiosks she had heard the others give the little fairy flew down to a nearby shop.
Breeze Fairy
N’Mara withdrew a coin from her pouch and put it in the nearby kiosk before she returned to browsing the shops. She was greatly enjoying this faire and all of the different areas that she was sure many mages had worked on. She knew from hearing others talk that each area was sponsored and run by a different shopkeeper and created from their magic.

I couldn’t resist the panda and balloons it was just too cute. Also please ignore the feet of a different skin tone on the fairy. >< My omega appliers wouldn’t work right on them for some reason. Don’t hold that against the skin, it is a very nice one. 🙂

A Quest in Malfience

Malfience Quest Sim

“The blessed realm of Belfience was once an idyllic home to a multitude of peoples: Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Mer, and Dragons. All shared the beauty and bounty of the land, prospering together in peace and harmony.

But the Unweaver saw their joy, and hated it, and set about to destroy it utterly.

Through sly deceits and trickeries, the Unweaver’s minions sowed doubts in the minds of Bellefience’s rulers, and their wisdom abandoned them. The steady drip of poison spread slowly, then faster and faster, hardening the hearts of each people against the others, until cruel war blazed and consumed the realm.”

Malfience Quest Sim - Village

“Facing certain death, many fled in haste with few possessions, forsaking their homes and a land now sick and blasted, its beauty ruined. Those who remained – wary and grim, huddled into separate enclaves yet determined to hold onto hope – renamed the realm Malfience, for the evil that had been done there.

The former Belfience is far distant from the Bard Queen’s realms, and their peoples have known little contact; none in recent memory. And so the Bard Queen was astonished and alarmed to see a flood of desperate, grieving exiles wash up on her shores – people for whom nothing will ever again be the same.”

Malfience Quest Sim - Ruins

“Resolving to help, she draws together those realms hosting the exiles into the Circle of the Fairelands, and sends forth her emissary to speak with the exiles and learn of the ill fate that befell them.

It becomes clear that this quest is as difficult and dangerous as can be imagined. To repair the evil wrought by the Unweaver, the emissary must find a way not only to brave the deadly perils of Malfience, but also to heal the hearts of peoples torn asunder by war.”

All of the above story is from Fantasy Faire 2016 – The Fairelands Quest

For more information on the quest and how to join it go here. Sorry I just used a quote, I haven’t yet had time or SL’s cooperation to do the quest myself. This is one thing you for sure don’t want to miss though! Not only are there lots of great prizes at the end, the sims are beautiful and from what I hear the quest is very fun. 🙂

Dim in Dangarnon

Dangarnon SimN’Mara looked down at her short dress, smiling at the feel of the gold coin jewelry brushing across her skin as she moved. Her smile faded a bit as she looked up at the small town she had entered. It was more dreary and dangerous feeling than the other faire areas she had been in thus far. She tilted her head back staring up at the tall tower and the light bursting from it up into the sky. After a while she lowered her gaze and tugging her dress straight she moved through the crowded streets.
 Dangarnon NMara
There was quite a variety of shops and the insides were as magnificent as any she had seen in her exploring of the faire grounds. She had never seen anything on the scale that this faire was at. There were 14 large areas set up as small towns filled with many shops. A lot of different beings and creatures were wandering around or running shops or entertaining people. She smiled at a faun as she bounded past. At the edge of town in a small area surrounded by rock she came across the skeleton of a dragon. As she knelt to look closer she heard a growl from nearby and decided it would be a better idea to return to town.
 Dangarnon Shops
A big statue stood in a clearing in the middle of town and she stopped to stare. There were spikes sticking up around it and its head had been knocked off and replaced with a wooden sign written on in red paint. She wasn’t sure what it said as she didn’t recognize the language. Hmm, curious. She debated asking someone about the statue’s history and story but was distracted by raised voices.
Dangarnon Statue
“What do you mean you won’t sell me any clothe?” A woman’s voice yelled angrily.
N’Mara drifted towards the voice, not knowing why but feeling drawn to it. She went down to the docks and saw a mermaid floating in front of a weavers cart. The mermaid and the shopkeeper continued to argue. As she got closer she understood that the mermaid didn’t have the right coin to buy the cloth and the shopkeeper did not want any of the items the mermaid had on her to trade. N’Mara stepped up next to the mermaid and laid her hand softly on her arm to get her attention.
The mermaid stopped mid-sentence and turned to her, a frown on her face.
 Dangarnon Mermaid
“I would be happy to trade you those items for some coin. It has been a long time since my friend has been to the ocean and I know she would love them for gifts.” N’Mara smiled at the mermaid and pulled put a number of coins and held them out towards her.
The mermaid looked between her and the shopkeeper and blushing she nodded and forced a smile at her. She traded her the beautiful shells she held for the coins in N’Mara’s hand. She handed them to the shopkeeper, who frowned but gave the bolt of cloth to the mermaid and put the coins in her purse. N’Mara smiled at them both and waving turned and headed back into town. She put the shells in her bag as she walked.

Faire Junction

Faire Junction Sim

Sadly, because or RL and SL not cooperating, I won’t be able to do a story post for every sim this year. So I will be doing some just as photos and sim info, so that I can do a post for each sim as I wish.

Faire Junction Portals

There was so much work put into each sim and I want to be sure and show that for each sim. I will also do a post showing as many different objects and looks from the faire as I can. It will also not have a story, but rather photos and information.

Faire Junction

Here is a look at Fairelands Junction! Where you can find portals to all the other sims as well as the silent auction which has some amazing prizes. There is also a hunt going on that you will want to be sure and do. Sorry this is a shorter post. I mainly wanted to share the photos and a little info. 🙂 Plus to try and fit all the posts in after battling both RL and SL I am doing 2 posts a night til the end.For more information about the faire and to see the current RFL totals go here.

Hedgehog Stew at Echtra

Echtra SimN’Mara looked around the wet, dreary area she had entered. After the bright heat of the Golden Delta it was a shocking abrupt change. She saw a sign in one of the first shops advertising rain bubble charms. She smiled and went inside to dry off, change clothing, and purchase one of the charms. When she left the shop she was once again dry with a bubble surrounding her and protecting her from the rain. She stopped and looked at a statue of a boy with glowing foot prints in front of it. She tilted her head and wondered what the meaning of them was. (( There is a hud on the sim for the Echtra experience, I believe those are part of that.))
Echtra Shops
As she wandered this newest small town of shops she smiled at the people and creatures she saw. A small group of sheep gathered near a torch in a small alley bleated at her as she passed. She saw a fire-pit ahead with a few tiny hedgehogs sitting on logs. There was a giant cauldron hanging over the fire filled with a delicious smelling stew in it. The hedgehogs looked up as she stopped to peer in at the stew.
Echtra Rain
The smallest hedgehog smiled and said, “Would you like some? We made a big batch to sell to faire goers.”
She smiled down at him and pulled out a coin. “I would love some, it smells delicious.”
The bigger of the hedgehogs grunted and picking up a bowl he ladled some of the stew into it and handed it to her. He waved a hand at the empty tree stumps. “Please sit and enjoy. Our small town pulls the heat right from you humans it seems.”
Echtra Hedgehog Soup
She sat and after a few bites said, “Ah, not so for me, I am not human but statue.”
“Statue??” The smaller hedgehog squeaked. “But you walk around! You look alive to me.”
She nodded. “I am enchanted to appear alive. Much of the time I slumber in my natural stone.” She finished the last few bites of the soup before continuing. “My good friend Bright Horn wakes me every so often when there is need or she believes I will be interested in something going on, such as this faire.” She grinned and stood, leaning down to place the bowl near a small pile of other used ones. “Thank you for the soup. It is very tasty.” She bowed her head to them and continued down the road.
Echtra Fairy Statue
She reached the end of the road and went through the gates of the town out onto an open plain. In the distance she saw a small henge and intrigued headed towards it. She could feel the pulses of magic coming from it. As she approaches she saw a small golden light flitting within the henge. Coming to a stop just outside the circle of stones she watched captivated as a small gold fairy flew around inside of it. Watching close she realized it was an enchanted statue much like she. Only instead of being self aware it merely flew in a predetermined pattern inside the magic of the stone henge. She watched for a while mesmerized before she pulled out her teleporting scroll and randomly chose her next destination.

Sorry for the lack of composite images, my computer and SL kept having disagreements when I went to take those photos.

Sapphire Mirror Lake

Sapphire Mirror Lake Art Sim

Sapphire Mirror Lake is this years arts and entertainment sim at the Fantasy Faire. I’ve only been able to catch one show there so far this year. Went to two more but crashed while trying to take photos.

Sapphire Mirror Lake Art

There are some really cool and creative art displays up that look great with the mirror water. There is also a large underwater exhibit and an art gallery.

Sapphire Mirror Lake Underwater Gallery

On the first warm day of Spring every year, the people at Sapphire Mirror Lake reconstruct an Iron Age skeleton of what we may call today a mythical beast: the centaur. It is said the secrets of a powerful lost technology are locked in their bones. This year, they have unearthed a 20 meter high gargantuan, but will it speak?

Sapphire Mirror Lake Art SkeletonThis is the Arts and Entertainment sim of Fantasy Faire 2016, with a central stage for a variety of first-rate performances, and two galleries featuring Fantasy themed art from the collections of some of the best photographers in Second Life. The story above sets the mood for the builds of the sim, both above and below sea level. Please dive in!

Sapphire Mirror Lake ChangHigh Sisters Poster

The show I caught this past Saturday was the Chang High Sisters. The set was really neat and what I could see of the performances was as well.

Sapphire Mirror Lake ChangHigh Sisters Set

Though honestly, in my humble opinion, it would have been better with a bit less of the particles and high glow. There were many parts where I couldn’t even see the performers. This is not the only show I’ve had that problem with, that and broken ankles (there are many free ankle locks out there). But as I said, what I was able to see I did enjoy and the music was very nice.Sapphire Mirror Lake ChangHigh Sisters

Sorry there was no story with this post, SL was not being very cooperative. I hope to have the continuation tomorrow evening so stay tuned!
