It’s that time again! This year, the Faery Crossing Yule Dance will be held at Faerie Mere and will be in the sphere of joy and happiness. So come on down to the specially created magical land at Saturday, December 15th at 12.00 noon SLT to dance with the Fae to the wonderful tunes of DJ Astoria Luminos.
It is with great sadness that I bring the news that last Tuesday, the person many of us knew as Nacre Swindlehurst passed away. Nacre was a soul who had seen the world and was shaped by its variety and its joys – and also its hurts.
A few years ago, Nacre lost his wife Kaela (also known to many here), but to everyone’s joy found love again with Banshee. There are no words to describe a loss like that and all the magic of our hearts go out to her in this time of loss.
Nacre was known to many of us as the king of the facepalm pun – a skill he often employed during dances. To those of us lucky enough to sometimes talk to him in IM, Nacre was a warm, open person for whom learning new things was an ultimate joy and who was able to bring forth this knowledge with the happiness it gave him when he himself learned it.
Thank you, Nacre, for sharing your dreams with us. Thank you for giving us your presence, your quirks, your sometimes glaringly bad puns, your warmth and the beauty of your soul.
Go now, my friend. Begin that one last journey that all must undergo alone. We will be here for those you have loved and were loved by in return. You will forever live in our hearts and they are happier places because if it,
Go now. Travel to the white shores. Walk upon the green grass beyond and smile as you see the sunrise. And wait for us there.
After last year’s success, The Faery Crossing will once again participate in the MadPea seasonal hunt. Unsurprisingly, the theme is Halloween and monsters will be hidden all over the grid. The hunt will begin October 20th.
The hunt uses a HUD (available for a small charge), which will randomly send you to one of the participating regions. Using the HUD radar, you can then track down the monsters and score points. Near the end of the hunt, these points can be exchanged for some amazing prizes.
The Faery Crossing will participate with several regions (Faerie Mere, The Faery Crossing and Wildewood, to name a few), but we are always looking for more suitable participants.
For over eight years, Astoria Luminos has delighted and enchanted the Fae of The Faery Crossing with her wonderful sets of music. So many colors of sound have come at us on the many Thursdays throughout the years, that it’s impossible to describe the magic.
From the drum circle in the old Wildewood Commons, to the Plucked Wing tavern, to many themed locations, we always found two hours of joy away from the world.
So on behalf of all the Fae, past and present, that have walked through the Luminosity events: thank you, Astoria.
Some say that the land of Ravenfirth started with one little inn that suddenly appeared out of the mists one day. They say that, as time passed, the homely, yet enigmatic nature of the inn began to affect the lands around it, until every corner breathed that air of barely concealed mystery. A layer of calm and beautiful nature, draped over…. something older. Something deeper.
It was already waiting for you online, but the summer edition of the Magic Messenger has been released inworld now as well, so either there or online, you can now peruse wonderful stories, current events and ancient lore, all by and for our Faery Crossing Kin!
Faerie Mere is where life begins. From the center of the land, the Wellspring bubbles up the clearest, most magical water that spreads through rivers, brooks and streams to the furthest corner, bringing with it joy, spirit, new life and magic.
