Qim Toxx: Storyteller at Fantasy Faire

Fantasy Faire gets a storyteller from the Faery Crossing. Our very own Qim Toxx will be telling stories at the Fantasy Faire LitFest on May 3rd at 4pm SLT.

“I will be telling a series of folktales, with animals as protagonists, in which they confront fear. Folktales hold our collective wisdom, so they can nurture us and offer counsel. Hopefully you will enjoy these folktales from around the world. But I also hope these tales help us all to meet the unknown tomorrows on our own terms.”

— Qim Toxx

If you want to attend this event, go to Fungalmire or use this SLURL to teleport directly.

See you there!

In Memoriam: Eleanor Avonside

It is our sad duty to inform you that our own pixie, Eleanor Avonside, has traversed the bridge that leads to the eternal Summerlands. 

During her time with the Faery Crossing, Eleanor taught Brownie classes for many years to the FC kin who kept the lands clean and sparkling. She sprinkled humor and a little madcap madness wherever she wandered and we wish her the brightest of journeys.

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!

Daylight Saving Time Changes

Hi everyone!

This weekend, Fae in Europe and various other parts of the world will end Daylight Saving Time. This means that, if this is you, your time difference will lessen by one hour.

This is an indication for various time zones (sorry if I missed yours) until the US will cross over into Winter too:

  • UK and Ireland: SLT + 7 hours
  • Western and Central Europe: SLT + 8 hours
  • Eastern Europe, Finland: SLT + 9 hours

Please keep this in mind while scheduling and/or attending events.
