The Gods of Sand, Stone and Gold

Gold1bs

There is a place within the Fairelands made out of sand, stone and gold. It glows under the blazing sun, lazy breeze bringing in scents from the desert.

Sand swirls in patterns against the columns, an embrace of hot air surrounding the ancient stone, brushing against the hieroglyphs as to write its own story.

Gold4bs

Gods form out of the heat: gods of black marble and gold, gods of desert and river, gods of life and death. They stand guard against the disruptions of time, their stone shapes wrapped in eternity.

There is a place within the Fairelands called The Golden Delta. Won’t you come over and visit?

Fantasy Faire is still open this weekend, Sunday is the last official day. If you haven’t yet visited, it’s time to go!

The Other Depths

otherdepths3bs
There are strange creatures swimming in the depths of OtherWorld. Creatures born as colourful as the world around them, camouflaged within the plants, breathing in same bubbles of magic as the plants fluttering within the currents.

They form symbiotic relationships with other creatures, embraces of friendship and support, each lending strength to another in ways the other does not possess. They do not garden, they nurture. For them life flows in one stream that each brings something unique to, for them there is no separation of self from the world, for them they are all one. For them all is life.

If you have not yet visited Fantasy Faire, it’s high time! If you happen to be a mer-creature, I warmly recommend the seas of OtherWorld for you.

The Secrets of Fae Magic

sparklefae3bs

“Let me tell you a secret,” the lavender fae whispered. “Let me tell you how we fae fly.” She paused, taking to air without as much as a flicker of her petal-covered wings. “The wings have nothing to do with it. Not anymore.”

sparklefae2bs

“We fae can draw in ambient energies of imagination, we breathe it in, sense it in our surroundings like sunlight on skin. Just like daystar warms us, imagination and inspiration give us power.”

sparklefae4bs

“We channel it and transform it into magic of another kind, of lights and music, of flight and sparkles, and most importantly; we channel it into dance. We laugh, dance, fly, live. They are the same.”

sparklefae1bs

There’s no better place to learn to fly and dance than the Fairelands. Fantasy Faire invites you to indulge and experiment with transformations, with magic of inspiration and imagination.

Unicorn Knights, the Protectors of the Fairelands

unicornknight2bs

It is a sacred duty to protect the Fairelands, one that all the Unicorn Knights share. For this purpose they are given the Armor of Resilience, the Shield of Strength and the Sword of Hope. In the Fairelands the Darkness has visible forms, ones that a skilled knight may defeat should her belief in her cause and her trust in her companions be strong enough.

unicornknight3bs

The unicorns travel with them, not as war mounts, but as friends. Their magic aids the knights, reminding them that even in the parts of the Fairelands where all hope seems lost one can find it from within. From the support of others, friends, family, community. Their journey is long, their service neverending, but they would not want it any other way. They keep the Darkness at bay and hope alive, day after day.

Fantasy Faire is open! The portals to the Fairelands have emerged and will bring you through the mists for eleven days before they vanish again. Journey to the Fairelands Junction and acquire a handy teleport HUD from there, or simply travel through all 14 worlds: they form a circle continent.

Spring Secrets

eastereggs3bs

“But how do the eggs get into the hooman world?” Cheepy the Third inquired. “We work hard all year with the eggs and flowers and butterflies and the exact right tone of yellow, and then one morning they’re just gone!”

“It’s the Guardians of Spring Secrets,” chirped Squee the Fifth. “Once we’re aaalmost ready, they send out someone to check our work and when they approve they’ll magic the eggs away, just like that! One wiggle of whiskers and swoosh!”

eastereggs2bs

“Not just a swoosh,” Goldiedots the Guardian spoke up, startling the chick workers. “It takes careful calibration of each bush and hiding spot and extremely patient channeling of spring energies. But that-” He paused for a moment, the official tone changing into an excited squee as he hopped next to the tiny bird and egg tree. “Whoooo did this one? This is brilliant!”

Cheepy the Third plopped down next to the Guardian, shamelessly proud. This year spring would be better than ever! The sun would be brighter, days warmer, birds more melodious and bunnies hoppier. It wasn’t easy to make the perfect spring, but by the Royal Tailfeathers of the Jazz Chicken, it was satisfying!

The spring in Second Life would not be a proper spring without the Easter Hunt in Magic of Oz. Go pick up your egg basket and collect your prizes in Magic of Oz! You can read about how the hunt works and preview the prizes here.

The Legend of Fireflowers

fireflowers3cs

The Legend of Fireflowers tells of a distant ocean-covered world where under glowing red skies rare flowers bloom once in every hundred cycles. They emerge from beneath the waves and reach toward the red twin suns, their colours changing rapidly as in a dance.

fireflowers2cs

They sing, the Fireflowers, sing in waves of colour and light, silent sparks and blazing patterns. They sing until their song forms a shape: a living, breathing being, called to life by the quiet dance of colours, awakened by the pull of the red skies.

fireflowers1cs

They are born aware, the Fireflowers, aware and ready to embark on their journey toward the strange lights in the sky, toward all the sparkling worlds in the infinite darkness.

Flutterpaws, the Dreamlings of Whimsy

flutterpaws1bs

Flutterpaws are dreamlings of whimsy. They flutter and pad and nose their ways through dreams with either endless curiosity or excessive feline indifference. When they find a dreamscape they like, they gather as indeed a flutter of paws, one after another.

flutterpaws3bs

Fish or other flickering moving things are often favored, but any dreamscape of shiny surreal things is sure to draw their attention. They don’t make friends often, the flutterpaws, but they do love chasing after zig-zag patterns and making a point to ignore anything they don’t comprehend. 

flutterpaws2bs

The yoga frogs inhabiting this particular dreamscape have fortunately endless zen patience toward their quirkier dream-kin. Perhaps the next time this dream will feature less butterflies and flying fish for less feline interruptions and therefore more meditation opportunities.

flutterpaws5bsSometimes when the flutterpaws feel especially whimsical, they invite a dreamer to join them: transform and transport, all for the sake of momentary amusement and an extremely puzzled dreamer with a story to tell when they wake up.
