This year’s Fantasy Faire has representations from six roleplay groups, with varied themes.
The NeoVictoria Project have a dark circus roleplay going on. Anansi, where most of the roleplay takes place certainly has a theme that makes me think Papa Lazarou is going to turn up at any second.
The Lilipods of Mudrana are sounding a bit too Elvish for my liking, they enjoy song and frolicking apparently :
The Lilypods of Mudrana live in the Land of the Lilypad providing music, song, and mischief in praise to the godfrog. Legends tell that should the godfrog falls asleep, the pond will dry out, and everything in the land would perish. The Lilypods provide instruments and entertainment to aid the frogs of Mudrana that croak and sing to preserve their world from death.
Sanctuary’s dark roleplay is taking place in Raven’s Perch.
Thousands of years ago, an ancient nemesis was defeated, but not entirely destroyed. That enemy once more stirs, and seeks to return and to steal away Sanctuary for themselves!
In the darkness and secret passageways of the past, the way to defeat this terror lies, but will the answers be found once more in time?
Ynys Seamaide are at The Spirit Pool with a search for a cure :
It is said that Ynys Seamaide stands upon the grounds of the last great battle of the Elder ones, the Tuatha da Dana and the Femorians. The land holds the key to their banishment. For years, Seamaide has been a haven for those seeking a peaceful life. Its waters, it is said, are doorways to other realms. Behind a reflection in each pool lies a new world, a secret that should have been better kept. And now, a thrall of the Elder race, a dark sorceress, has poisoned the land, turned life against itself. There is yet hope, however, as the Envoys of Seamaide have traveled to the Spirit Pool in search of answers and healing. Will you help them find the cure?
Steelwood are at The Hill, I suspect there will be Elves here so tread carefully :
The life runs nice in the small village, people deal with daily issues and are happy of their simple life. One day a star appears in the sky, a new star more bright than everything seen before. Astonishment and wonder spreads through the crowd… but this is just the start. Something else is hidden behind that event, something that will change their lives forever.
Over at San Mora a deadily contagion outbreak has caused chaos :
The world as we once knew it came to an end two years ago with the outbreak of a viral infection that swept across the world leaving it in ruins. There was no cure for the virus that decimated the landscape.
If you have never tried roleplay in Second Life, visiting these groups at Fantasy Faire will give you a good introduction to the practice.
