The rumble began at 10am beneath the Shifting Sands. By 1pm it had spread to The Tides. After that, the force of it was so great that it struck Shadows Claw, Devils Locket, Meandervale. Across Junction’s stage to the Auction wall. Today, the Fairelands rocked. $3753. A record daily amount in the Fairelands. Day 8 overall total, $20,050 US. A record amount for where we are now And the Faire continues thru Monday, 4/30 at 6pm. Count me among the believers. From here on, anything is possible…– Zander Greene, Friends Fighting Cancer
First attempts are always the most exciting ones and this project seems to do exactly what it says on the tin! I think my Relay for Life 2011 designer sim had a great impact on the organizers decision to contact me, but I´m friends with Ember Farina since some time now and even before I started supporting the American Cancer Society. I think she knows that I love fantasy settings and that I could not stay away from that offer. Actually I have no idea what really happened, but I´m glad you guys contacted me, I would have applied anyway
Some may think that the whole theme sounds very similar to the Prince of Persia movie, but this is not the case. I think I just borrowed some names. I mostly got inspired by pictures and the woodchip wallpaper next to my bed, you never know what you´ll see next on it
Woodchip wallpaper….well, of course! That would explain the yellowy lighting effects favoured by Kayle :-).
Broken wood chips, I mean stone slabs, mark the path through the region. In the centre, a curious well has formed, sucking sand down into a dark, star filled void, suspended in the centre is a crystal.
Curiously familiar, and reminiscent of the gems mined in Devil’s locket. More intriguing still, the other side of the same structure is pouring water out onto the land.
As we stumble through the streets, exhausted by the heat, blinded by the sand, we seek shelter under the palm trees. In the distance, we can see salvation, a familiar sight, hot but not scorching and with plenty of cool water to bathe in. Is it a mirage? No it really is Nu Orne, we have gone full circle.
Our tour concludes here. Thank you kindly for you company on this incredible journey of discovery. I hope to see you all here again next year. If you have enjoyed the tour and the many attractions, do not hesitate to make a donation in one of the many vendors across the Fairelands.
