The special winter bench for this week has been chosen! The only hint you get is this picture:) Find the bench in The Faery Crossing, touch the FC box hidden somewhere around it, and you will automatically get a point in the hunt – easy peasy! If you didn’t get the awesome gift from last week’s bench, you’ve got a second chance because it is in the box!
A blessed winter solstice to you all!

Welcome to Northern Lights, our winter wonderland! Wander and enjoy the beauty, grab a treat at several shops, or warm yourself in one of the cabins. Bring your friends!
On January 2nd we will have the Northern Lights Skate Race from noon to 2pm SLT.
Contestants will wear a special star on their head (available at the start gate), don a pair of skates (free ones available at the landing point), and start skating! Follow the blue snowflakes embedded in the ice to the finish gate.
When you finish your elapsed time will be given to you in local chat.
During the actual race on the 2nd, Moz McGinnis will collect finish times and distribute the prizes while DJ Shay spins us some tunes.
Practice any time you want – the course is open!
Good luck, have fun!

It’s the third and final week of the Benches of Faery Crossing Hunt: Autumn Season! Here is the picture of Autumn Bench #3. Find it, sit, and record your location. Since this is the last bench of the autumn season (next week the winter benches will be in place), it is time to send in your entry for the FC Autumn Bench contest! Create a notecard with your name, and include the three special autumn bench locations. Send the notecard to Qim Toxx. The top 10 entries will receive cash prizes of 500L$ each! And don’t forget to look all around Bench #3 for a Faery Crossing box. It contains a special autumn prize for everyone who finds it.
Get those entries in by December 10th!
It’s the 2nd week of our Benches of Faery Crossing Hunt! Here is the picture of Autumn Bench #2. Find it, sit, and record your location. We will post Autumn Bench #3 on or around December 3rd, and that will be the last bench of the season, so entries for the contest will be accepted through December 10th – awesome prize for the top 10 scorers!
Just a reminder for our non-US Fae that in many parts of the world Daylight Saving Time will be ending in the coming Sunday (Oct. 31) and that that will impact your offset from SLT until the US goes back a week later.
- UK & Eire: SLT +7
- Western and Central Europe: SLT +8
- Eastern Europe and West Asia: SLT +9
Please keep this in mind when planning to attend events.
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!
Hope to hear from you soon! Don’t be shy!
Love & Light,
School of Lore Faculty
The Faery Crossing
Merry meet! Just a reminder that this weekend, the EU and others will be going over to daylight saving time. This means that as of Sunday, offsets with SLT will return to normal.
