Have you ever heard about something in folklore and was curious about what it means? Do you want to know more about the Aos Sí, the Tuatha de Danann, the Selkies or the Sluagh?
Now you can!
The Faery Crossing is introducing the Folklore Circle: a chance to gather around the fire for an informally led discussion of folklore topics, under the expert guidance of Toshiro, a folklore author and researcher, who will be happy to guide conversation.
We have created an idea box in the shape of a barrel with a green man on the front (just because we can) that you can find here. Just add your idea(s) in a notecard and dunk it in!
As of tomorrow, most of the US (and therefore SLT) will go on daylight saving time. This means that SLT, as of tomorrow, 2am SLT, will be one hour later. Please keep this in mind when attending events.
Walking through Madrigal, there is no place where your skin is not warmed by the gentle glow of the sun. If Summer were ever to settle down, it would be in this land of green grass and white beaches. Entering from the north, I come through a peaceful hamlet where Fae are busy watering their plants or lounging around the central pond. They greet me and wave merrily as I pass. Looking to the east, I see a temple on a hill, content under the shadow of the majestic white castle over in The Faery Crossing.
The Wellspring is the central area in Faerie Mere. A mysterious lake that wells up from the depths of Faerie that pours out into the surrounding lands via four separate waterfalls, thus spreading its magical energies to the surrounding land.
Recently, the Wellspring was severely damaged and its beauty marred. But thanks to the efforts of our wonderful Fae, the Wellspring has been renewed and is more beautiful and magical than ever before.
Let yourself be enchanted by the images below or, better yet, come and enjoy the source of all Fae magic in all its glory here.
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.
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.
Please note that the US (including SL) have gone to daylight saving time today. This means they are one hour closer to the EU and other folk who go over to DST at the last weekend of March.
Please keep that in mind when planning to attend events.
Traditionally, the Moonday Dances will remain at the EU friendly time of 21.00 EU (20.00 UK) and so will be at 1.00pm SLT instead of noon. However, please keep an eye on notices for any schedule changes.
