For those who want to know what Eileach Eilid used to look like and for those who recall and are feeling nostalgic: here is a wonderful video from Russell’s YouTube channel where he wanders the Faery Crossing lands.
Merry meet, dear Fae,
Linden Labs are implementing changes in the way your US$ balance is processed. Basically, this impacts the link between your account’s US Dollar balance and an external balance method (e.g. PayPal or Skrill).
Please note that this does NOT impact regular L$ purchases. If you only spend money to buy L$ inworld, the information below will not be applicable to you.
In short, Linden Labs set up a subsidiary company to handle their credit payments. This company is called Tillia and they have some requirements. We will provide you with links containing details, but here are the bullet points.
- Tilia is a full subsidiary of Linden Labs – i.e. they own the company;
- You will need to provide Tilia with Name, Address , Date of birth and
(for US citizens) Social security number or (for non-US citizens) a copy of a government issued ID (passport, driver’s license, EU ID card, etc.);
- You will need to submit proof of the above by photocopy of, e.g. a utility bill, bank statement, etc.;
- If you have already verified your ID with Linden Labs earlier, it is likely you will not have to do this again; if Tilia requires additional information, you will be contacted;
- If you are under 18, you are not eligible for this service – you will still be able to participate in SL in all regular ways;
- If your account is inactive for 12 months, Tilia will begin charging a fee. This will not happen when your US$ account balance is 0$ (so this fee will not lead you into debt);
- There will at this time be no additional fees (other than the changed fee announced earlier and the aforementioned inactivity fee);
Linden Labs and Tilia have provided several links with information. We highly recommend you peruse them and check the forum. We will list the links below.
- Announcement by Linden Labs
- Tilia FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
- Forum Thread on Tilia
Now, in addition to these links, we encourage you to get informed in other ways. Again, if all you do is buy L$, this should have no impact on you.
Love & Light!

Please be advised that as of this Sunday (March 31st), the part of the world that has not gone over to daylight saving time (and usually does) will move to DST, so that the regular time difference between your respective time zones will be restored.
Please keep this in mind for any events you may wish to attend on Sunday or you’ll show up an hour late and Bugs and Tealkie will have eaten the snacks.
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.Continue reading The Wellspring Rejuvenated
Please be advised that this Sunday morning (March 10th), the clocks in most parts of North America will move an hour forward for Daylight Saving Time; this includes SLT (Second Life Time).
For people in other areas of the world, this will mean that the events will happen one hour earlier than you are used to.
Time Differences (offset from SLT as per Sunday)
- United Kingdom & Ireland: SLT +7
- Western Europe (CET): SLT +8
- Finland, Baltic States, S. Africa: SLT +9
The European Union will move to Daylight Saving Time on the weekend of 30/31 March, at which points the offsets will return to their normal time span.
Merry meet, everyone!
Now that the new year is underway, it is time to focus on putting your next creative ideas to virtual paper. The themes for the spring edition of the Magic Messenger are “spring” and “color“.
So send us your stories, your poems, your colorful recipes for food and drink and whatever else you can come up with.
It’s that time again! This year, the Faery Crossing Yule Dance will be held at Faerie Mere and will be in the sphere of joy and happiness. So come on down to the specially created magical land at Saturday, December 15th at 12.00 noon SLT to dance with the Fae to the wonderful tunes of DJ Astoria Luminos.
When: Saturday, 15 December, 12.00 noon SLT
It is with great sadness that I bring the news that last Tuesday, the person many of us knew as Nacre Swindlehurst passed away. Nacre was a soul who had seen the world and was shaped by its variety and its joys – and also its hurts.
A few years ago, Nacre lost his wife Kaela (also known to many here), but to everyone’s joy found love again with Banshee. There are no words to describe a loss like that and all the magic of our hearts go out to her in this time of loss.
Nacre was known to many of us as the king of the facepalm pun – a skill he often employed during dances. To those of us lucky enough to sometimes talk to him in IM, Nacre was a warm, open person for whom learning new things was an ultimate joy and who was able to bring forth this knowledge with the happiness it gave him when he himself learned it.
Thank you, Nacre, for sharing your dreams with us. Thank you for giving us your presence, your quirks, your sometimes glaringly bad puns, your warmth and the beauty of your soul.
Go now, my friend. Begin that one last journey that all must undergo alone. We will be here for those you have loved and were loved by in return. You will forever live in our hearts and they are happier places because if it,
Go now. Travel to the white shores. Walk upon the green grass beyond and smile as you see the sunrise. And wait for us there.
Rest in peace, Nacre Swindlehurst.
