The Critter Adventures in the Fairelands

They arrived on boats, rowing or sailing with determination.

They swam through dangerous oceans, tirelessly snorkeling forward.

Critter Adventures - Snorky in Poseidon's Abyss 1

They floated down peaceful rivers, sightseeing while traveling.

The cleverest ones even used improvised parachutes.

Critter Adventures - Hedgehogs in Aurora 1

They came to see faraway relatives, to exchange news and catch up.

Critter Adventures - Birdies in Sylvan of Spells 2

They came to meet new friends, to admire art.

Critter Adventures - Snorky in Odyssey 1

They came to pay respect to the Great Heroes of Legends.

Or to shop for items not available anywhere else in the realms.

Critter Adventures - Weff in Spires of Andolys

Or to enjoy delicacies out of our world.

Critter Adventures - Addler in Fairelands Junction

They came to play and adventure.

Critter Adventures: Skwrl Bros in Wildehaven Marsh 3

To have a moment of silent soothing peace with good companions.

Critter Adventures - Pingus in Ravenshold 1

Perhaps to even fall in love a bit.

Critter Adventures - Addler in Ichi-go Ichi-e 2

Most definitely to snuggle in romantic scenery.

And eventually, at the end of the day, they came to enjoy the music, to sit down, have a cup of coffee and watch the view.

They came to watch the Fairelands, to live in them for the brief time they are connected to our world. As everyone should.

The critters visited the Fairelands this year. If you didn’t, you have still a couple of days left of completely stolen time. The official program has ended and the Faire is technically speaking over, but unofficially the portals stay open until the magic fades (and the Linden Lab removes the sims). We cannot guarantee when that will happen, but we are guessing a few extra days.

The whole set of the Critter Adventures in the Fairelands can be seen in my Flickr, these were just one picture per sim and FaireChylde bonus.

The Portal to Fairelands Junction

Eleven Days of Enchantment

The transition was smoother this year. No lands were lost and the amount of magical energy required to form the Fairelands was at such high levels that the continent grew to the size never seen before.

welcome2bsThe Fairelands are awake now and like all living things, reaching toward the spring light, basking in it, full of life and promise. Full of magic and enchantment.
welcome3bsAll is prepared, the feasts have been set, the portals polished, the welcoming fairy dances practiced, the dragons pre-lectured about not eating any visitors.
welcome1bsThe Fairelands are here, the magic has arrived. You have eleven days to step through a portal and join the Faire Folk before the spells anchoring the Fairelands into reality fade once more. Eleven days to live in the fantasy world continent, eleven days to be all you want to be. Eleven days of enchantment. 

Fantasy Faire 2015 has just opened! You can begin your journey here in the Fairelands Junction, which has portals to all the other sims. This year there’s ten shopping sims and three additional ones: Fairelands Junction, Poseidon’s Abyss (Arts & Entertainment) and Ravenshold (The Lost Land Hunt). There’s Literary Festival, dance and particle shows, DJs, roleplay groups, May Day Ball, jail & bails, auctions… the eleven days are packed. Read more about it all in the Fantasy Faire website.
