Fantasy Faire 2018 Begins

If there's an event in the Relay for Life in Second Life that's as loved as the Relay Weekend, it's  the Fantasy Faire. For ten days in fifteen sims, there's plenty to see, do, and experience. There will be clothes and avatars and more to buy with the money going to fund cancer research. There are events such as the "Jail and Bail", the Literary Festival, G.R.R. Martin Day, the Xanadu Roller Party, and others. There is the Fairelands Quest. And of course the well-done scenery to explore around in.

Dropping in with my alt on day one of the Faire yesterday, it was a bit glitchy at times, with my avatar occasionally turning invisible, crashing when trying to teleport, etc. "Welcome to the Relay Weekend," one guy put it, comparing it to the big event in which the sims are overwhelmed by the sheer number of avatars. But I did find some goodies, notably a freebie "The Minkie" Bento avatar that could be worn on the spot upon getting it when clicking on the vendor. There was also a "Cheer the Dragonfae" avatar for 199 Linens. And who is Cheer? He's your guide in the Fairelands Quest this year.

For those with less powerful computers, you may need to wait until late in the evening or early in the morning to enjoy the Faire better. But for Second Life enthusiasts, especially Relayers, this is an event you won't want to miss.
