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.

The time has come! The MadPea Summer Hunt, in which our lands are among the stops, has begun!
If you see hunters in the lands, wave and say hi!
If you are interested in joining, the start is over here:
SLURL to MadPea Summer Hunt
This summer, the Faery Crossing will take part in the MadPea Summer Hunt! This is a grid-wide hunt organized by MadPea Productions where you can win amazing prizes by gathering hidden seashells all over the grid.
The hunter package includes a radar which will help you locate the sea shells.
The hunt begins on June 13th! When it starts, we will publish a SLURL to the hunt start location.
It’s SL’s 15th birthday this year and what a journey it’s been!
And it’s about to get more exciting still! Linden Labs have unveiled new (and recurring) features they have implemented or will implement in the near future!
Among there is – hold on to your buttocks – the return of last names!! (dun dun DUNNNNNN)
Linden Labs will soon make it possible to customize your last name. So now all you Resident types will have to go through the same arduous process us Ancients went through and pick a last name that suits you (or something utterly random).

This weekend is the Spring Equinox celebration in The Faery Crossing. Come and help welcome spring with ritual, song, dance, stories and more!
The weekend kicks off on Friday with a special building class at 11.00am SLT and will follow on Saturday with the Equinox Triad. On Sunday, we will have a ritual followed by a wonderful dance to the tunes of master DJ Astoria!

See you there!!!
So you have wandered the Faery Crossing and you like it? Well, this is your chance to live there!
We currently have several wonderful seaside parcels available in rustic Faerie Mere. Faerie Mere is located directly north of the Faery Crossing sim, so it’s just a short walk to the market, the Plucked Wing or the Mushroom Circle.

The Faery Crossing is sponsoring a Yule gift giving event.
Everyone is invited to set out a snowman (or a wrapped present) that, when touched, will give a greeting to the one who touched it, and will also give them presents.
In the weekend of December 9th-10th you will have five opportunities to take a building class to make the gift-giving snowman. Between December 12th and 22nd, there will be a series of building classes on how to make various gifts to give away.
Schedule is listed below and on the FC Calendar.
Put out your gift-giving snowman (or wrapped present) by Saturday, December 23rd. Then starting Sunday, December 24th, folks will be invited to wander the Welcome Center area, touching snowmen and presents to collect their gifts from the faeries. The snowmen and presents will be left out through January 7th.
- Only snowmen or wrapped gift packages may be left out as givers. Maximum land impact of 10;
- The Givers must use the following script. This script IMs the person who touches the Giver with the message that is typed in the object description, and then gives everything in its contents;
- You can put as many gifts into contents as you wish. Just be sure all of them have copy permission;
- The Givers are to be placed on the Welcome Center parcel on Faery Crossing out on the grass/snow, but not inside the Welcome Center, by Christmas Eve (December 23rd). http://maps.secondlife.com/…/The%20Faery%20Crossi…/169/91/26 ;
- Leave your Giver out until January 7th. If you do not retrieve it on the 8th, it will be returned to you shortly thereafter.
If you have questions, please contact Qim Toxx!
All classes and office hours will be held in the FC Building Bubble.
