The Faire is brimming with stories: breathtaking builds and fantastical creations designed to touch your heart and soul. What stories do they inspire in you? We invite you to put your Fantasy Faire experience into words.
Pools of Ethuil (Searlait Nitschke)
Nestled among the highest branches of spring trees, the southern Elves make their home above watery lowlands. This is a tranquil, mystical place in the heart of nature, wrought from the gentle shades of nature’s palette, where aerial pathways hang in the spaces between dwellings and the leaves are warmed by sun above and lights below.
Seeds of Story
These are suggestions. Be inspired by this land and write what you desire.
The main building on the formal garden upper terraces. What might it function as, a high council chamber, a court, a palace? Is it still the temple of old?
A staircase leads to the upper terraces, on the left is the wilder forest. Who lives in each? Who confines themselves to one side and who crosses between?
The gardens are set in a formal pattern, what does it signify?
A hidden place, What stories could such a place reveal?
A faery in despair, but why and who might help her? Why has the magic faded from the Pools?
A very special breed of unicorn, he or she lives on the forest side but who dares to bridle a unicorn?
A bench on the garden side but with a view of the forest, who might watch and wait from here and for whom? Which spirits do the small temples hold close?
