New activity in Faery Crossing! HORSEBACK RIDING

As of now, there is a free horse rezzer next to the FC Welcome Center.  Just touch the horse and choose the type of horse you want. If you can’t decide, touch the sign and you will get a picture of all the choices, listed from tiny ponies to huge Clydesdales.

When you choose a horse, it will rez and you will be sitting on it. Turn your AO off. You get a HUD that let’s you control your activity, speed, and many other things, or you can just use the arrow keys on your keyboard to keep it simple.

Ride the paths of Faery Crossing. To get from island to island, use the fords, or just wade into deep water (and watch the fun animation). Form a faery rade by choosing to “follow” another horse rider – you can sit back and enjoy the view!

If you ‘stand’, your horse will wait patiently for a short time in case you want to get back on or have it follow you or lead it. If you don’t follow up with a new activity, it will eventually disappear.
You can always go back and get another horse!

Happy trails!

Casting Call!

Merry meet!

The Faery Crossing Productions is putting on a play! We will be performing “Queen of the Underworld”; a play based on Greek myth and the reason for Joanne’s wardrobe.

This will be a play by Fae, for Fae, so we need YOU.  We will need actors (obviously), background cast, scenery artists, people with an abundance of sounds in their inventory, scripting peeps, and anything you might think would contribute.

Don’t be shy. If you’ve ever played pretend when you were a kid, you have more experience than we do.

Please contact Joanne Pevensey for more information.

 

We Need Your Brain

No. There’s no zombie apocalypse (mainly due to a scheduling conflict), but the High Faery Court and the Events Team want to pick your brain. Over time, The Faery Crossing has hosted numerous events: dances, Faelympics, quests, quizzes, and whatnot.

Now, we want to hear your ideas for new and exciting events. What would you like to see in FC? A fair? A new quest? Lessons on things like druidry or Fae lore?

It can be a weekly or monthly event, a yearly one or even a one-off. Anything that makes your inner Fae sparkle with giddiness. And while you can of course help host the event (with all help you require) or be involved in its creation, this is in no way an obligation.

If you have an idea, submit it to Jo Shamrock of the Events Committee. Don’t be shy, all contributions are much appreciated.

The Faery Crossing in the MadPea Monster Hunt!

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 more information, check the MadPea website.
