The Between is Breached

“Tell me, minions mine, what news from the Border, what word from the Threshold, what whispers from the Between?”

“O Mistress Most Magnificent, tonight is the Night: the Border opens, the Threshold is crossed, the Between breached. The cards so pronounce, the runes declare, the moons of nether shine upon the Door.”

“Witness then, my vicious vouboos, witness and rejoice: it is time to summon spirits to wander the waking world. Upon my call they shall come, my words they shall heed, my will they shall follow. The mortal world shall feel their presence as they walk its streets: truths among lies, surreal realities amongst disguises, hidden in plain sight. 

Each step they take draws shadows from human hearts, each inhale of stolen breath drains courage, each bastion of rationale besieged by doubt, assaulted by belief older than this newly-found love of facts.”

“Their hearts fill with dark whispers and undeniable certainty that there is something near them: behind them in the room, in the dark corner of the street, under the bed, just out of sight but so certainly there they can hear the breath that is not drawn. Their hearts become ours. This night, this night when the Between is breached.

This night they know that underneath the fairest of Ariels lies Caliban awaiting. This night the nether realms are empty, for their creatures all walk amongst you.”

Magnificent masquerade this Halloween: keep your eyes open, pay attention to the corner of your eyes. Who knows what you might see.

The Gifts of Time

The Fortune Teller brought Gifts of Time to the Fallen Gods Inc. Decennial, the gentle hiss of the sand in an hourglass, the rhythm of the ticks of a clock. He weaved time into stars, into eons of constellations, into gold glowing in the dark space he wove it.

Some of the Deities of Time fell from the depths of space into the bay of Selidor, shedding the dark cosmos for warmer blues of the ocean, stepping out to greet their distant kin.

And some…well, some of them embraced the infinite abyss and its stars, turning to darker hues, yet yearning to explore, reaching for contact, for experiences. In the night they fell like shooting stars, wading out of the bay like shadows, their magics evolved to reminisce the red moons instead of warm sun.

Fallen Gods Inc. Decennial has started! There’s Decennial Market on top of the temple, ~Timeless~ grid-wide hunt going on, and also the Fortune Teller with complete avatar prizes!

The Decennial Market has a shopping guide on Seraphim and is located on the roof of Fallen Gods Inc. main store.

~Timeless~ Hunt takes you through over 50 locations and rewards you with a hoard of prizes in the end. The free HUDs can be acquired either from Fallen Gods Inc. group notices (~Fallen Gods Inc. 10th~ Source of Future Memories) or from several locations in Selidor, here’s one example.

The Fortune Teller is a game where you sit at the Teller with another avatar, and he checks if you two match. If you get 100%, you both win a prize! This year the prize is Chronos Coal Gold avatars (the prize includes both female and male avatars). The Fortune Teller can be found here in Selidor.

Never Truly Gone


We are never truly gone. They think we are but stories, old legends, ancient myths. They call us explanations for the unknown, symbols for the various parts of human life, concepts made easier to grasp. We are. There is no telling if we existed first and helped shape these concepts, imprinted them on the human mind, or if the humans called us to being with their devotion and fervent belief. No telling, nor does it matter.

We rose from the sand: shaped of gold, carrying the living sun in our hearts. We rose, we ruled, we faded into stories. That is the biggest story of them all, the one where we faded. They keep telling it, not realizing that with each telling the sun grows brighter, the hawks fly higher, the minions of Bastet step into your homes and demand your worship.

In each purring sound you hear the desert wind, each dawn reveals the rise of the radiant disk held high, in each story you hear more of the truth. We are always here, every sunrise, every nightfall, every soft step in the alleyways, every shriek in the skies. We were never truly gone.

July 15th – 16th is the Relay Weekend in Second Life. There’ll be events around the clock, and of course the whole track to run and explore. The opening ceremony is at 10 AM SLT on July 14th. The event schedule and information can be found here and the Event Day Arrival Center is here. Alia brought back a part of the Golden Delta for the track’s Imagine-region, and sooner than later I had to shapeshift to match.

Growth of a Forest Fae

They begin their lives as petite fae, dancing with the lights on the bottom of the forest, on its waters and moss-covered hills. Their wings, their magic, can barely hold them afloat, but as they explore, as they dance, their enchantments grow stronger.

They practice by flying higher, landing on branches as large as roads, walking on them with tiny steps until trying to reach the higher foliage again.

On their way higher they begin to grow. The forest is ancient and it takes them years to fly up, years as they grow in size and magic. The foliage begins to thin, small beams of light tease them, lure them higher.

Then one day they break through the leaves into the light and touch the dawn. It is a blinding moment after the safety of the dark embrace of forest shadows. Blinding moment of growth when all the roads are not only open, but non-existent. Sky is open, sky has no limits.

The last weekend of Fantasy Faire 2017 is upon us. The official event program ends on Sunday, but we will have a six-hour closing party on Monday to wrap things up thoroughly. The Fairelands stay open for visitors through May 4th, so feel welcome to stay, explore, shop and quest!

Living at The Rose

The statues at The Rose are alive. You wouldn’t know it at first glance as they stand on their pedestals, pose in their carefully selected spots, frozen in moments of activity. You wouldn’t — couldn’t — guess, but it is true. Their sculptor imbued them with life and spirit full of humor and mischief.

The moment you glance away, they end up giving merry buntoinettes unicorn rides and playing Fantasy Football with pigeons. When you glance back, they’re gone, only the sudden breeze revealing that something incredibly fast zoomed by. The breeze and a faint eeeeeee-sound in the wind.

When playing with their flesh-and-blood friends, they often pretend to freeze back to statues again. That way you might see statues where there wasn’t any yesterday, nor will there be tomorrow. When asked, the blame is always on the Magician tending to The Rose. The statues couldn’t move on their own, after all. Especially not in the Fairelands.

An Unexpected Party

Today is the day. Today we celebrate one of our founders, a true visionary whose imagination shaped ours, whose dreams turned to life in vivid colours and sounds and emotions. 

Today we will hold a party in his honor, a tribute, a feast: a completely Unexpected Party, even! There will be food involved, and music, and fireworks.

Today we gather to celebrate Middle Earth in the closest realm we have to the Shire. Won’t you join the celebration?

Today is Tolkien Day in the Fairelands. Come join the Literary Festival events, Tolkien readings and of course the party at The Hill! Schedule can be found here.

She Walks on Water

She walks on water, each step barely dipping pale toes in, causing small ripples. Each ripple sprouts life, drawing forth plants, flowers reaching up to the daylight, up to her. 

She walks on water, and the flowers bloom with magic, swirling in the breeze like fireworks, delighting in the footsteps of Spring.
