Lyyric Fei walked the hall with whispered reverence at the gathering of the genius, artists, builders, designers, lovers of secondlife… soon the world would see all the dreams that come to be!! – Lyyric Fei (2012)
From Saturday April 21 to Sunday April 29, 2012, thousands of Second Life residents and creators will come together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer. Nine Second Life sims will be transformed into the Fairelands, a fantasy continent created to host Fantasy Faire 2012, to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life (RFL of SL).
Fantasy Faire 2012 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. Nine days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts and roleplaying to benefit Relay for Life and the fight against cancer. Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from more than 130 of SL’s top Fantasy Creators, spread across nine stunning sims designed by some of the visionary artists behind many of the hottest spots on the SL destination guide.
As we did last year, PrimPerfect will be bringing you a report from one of the sims each day of the event, and an update on the Faire’s progress. Having previewed many of the sims I can only warn you that this is not for the faint of heart nor a phobia of superlatives.
Here is a quick summary of the sims that await you: Devil’s Locket, a small chain of islands that earned its name both for the treacherous navigation of its waters and the amazing but explosive firegems that were mined from its volcanic depths.
Jungle Bungle, A wild vision of Jack and the Beanstalk in the inimitable style of Mayah Parx the ToyMaker.
Meandervale, a surreal meadow where the streams meander as well as thoughts and, in fact, reality itself.
Ruins of Nu Orne takes us to a visually stunning forest of lost and ruined temples.
The Tides, the silent ruins of a lost society that harnessed the power of the strong and heavy sea and ruled across the waves.
In Siren’s Secret, the rocky sea caves are a refuge for the sea creatures who hide in the depths of the kelp forest.
Shifting Sands– The Hourglass holding the Sands of Time has cracked and spilled, creating a desert with untold treasures awaiting discovery by the intrepid explorer.
Shadow’s Claw – A viking settlement, stands bold against the test of time, its beacon burning brightly, its jail sending a dire warning to all who trespass against its law.
Fantasy Faire Hunt
This year the Faire will also have something for hunt lovers. With a specially written story and specially created hunt prizes and clues.
In ages past the Mer had looked upon the worlds beyond their own through the Sirenglass. This most magical of artefacts was destroyed to save the Fairelands but times change and now a new threat more sinister still requires that the 8 shards of the mirror be recovered, the Sirenglass made whole.
To uncover this adventure and embark on the hunt hurry now to the Fantasy Faire.
