Sonya Marmurek, one of the magical organisers of Fantasy Faire 2017, brings us news on the regions that will adorn this year’s fantastical fundraising event as part of the Relay for Life of Second Life fundraising event for the American Cancer Society.
The greatest event in the Second Life calendar draws closer , yes Fantasy Faire 2017 is on the horizon. Posters for this year’s event are available from the website and can be used in blog posts about the event, but please try and keep the aspect ratio.
Fantasy Faire 2017 is part of the Relay For Life in Second Life efforts to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Last year’s event raised L$7,716,664 (US$ 30,867).
This year’s event, which as usual won’t be anywhere long enough, will run April 20 – 30.
This post is a relatively easy for me because I’m just going to post the press release! You’ll find that below the cut, unless you’re already below the cut of course!
Thousands of years past, a sidhe failed in their duty and let a nameless terror into the worlds. It cost them their life, but not their soul. That was put into a mechanical marvel, and so began their long service as a sentinel against the darkness.
But after so long, their mechanical body has begun to fail and that nameless evil escapes its bonds. The automaton sends word to the Sidhe Empire for assistance.
Will help arrive in time?
Here’s a video trailer :
Whereas the roleplay has already begun, you’re not too late if you want to catch up. The next scheduled event is Scene 4 – Battle Against the Soul-Eater and takes place between 6pm-9pm on Wednesday April 27th at The Cathedral on The Serenity region.
My first day at Fantasy Faire 2016 had been the traditional mixture of awe, mead, more awe, more mead and keeping a beady eye and a worried ear out for Elves, especially singing Elves. So far, so good on that front.
Today, I decided, would be a good day for a beard trim or some culture. I opted for culture, the beard trim can wait. A kindly being pointed me away from the nearest tavern and in the direction of something called LitFest, muttering something about my health. Apparently LitFest is a celebration of all things literary and if there’s one thing a Dwarfin likes, it’s a good old tale or two.
The location of this literary fest was a pavilion, where a crowd had gathered to hear tales from a little red monster by the name of Caledonia Skytower.
One of the cool things about The Fantasy Faire team is that they provide all these banners for you to publish (but please keep the aspect ratio), which is nice. Anyway, more importantly, Fantasy Faire 2016 have published posts asking for applications from artists, writers, DJ’s and bloggers for this year’s event, but the clock is ticking on applications.
