So the Faire is wrapping up for 2017. It will be open to the public from what I understand through May 4th. If you would like to go…. take a taxi to my sim >>>> Chaddul Ro <<<<
So much has happened and I know I have been very quiet. There have been a lot of reasons for this… some… very personal and some just the whirlwind of creating for the faire with all of the things to do.
This year saying good bye is even harder than usual… Unfortunately I can’t be here like I usually am due to some real life obligations that just can’t wait. I won’t be able to be here when the Fairelands disappear into the mist again. I won’t be able to be here when the sims are taken offline like I usually am.
Saying good-bye will have to be a little bit different. I wish I could be here.
This year creating for Fantasy Faire was more personal than ever. They haven’t posted my interview yet… a blurb of it for part of the dedication, and honestly I don’t know when or if they will post the rest of it. It is very long winded, and personal.
You guys… you’re going to get something no one else ever will…. a piece of Chaddul Ro. A part of the very heart of the sim, there were two integral pieces to what it represented. The beacon… the towers with the flames and then the sacred space. A memorial/remembrance area on the sim.
The beacon was sold at auction.
The alter will not be sold.
It will not be made available except for when I ever decide to make it that way.
Right now… it is available to you. My group members and only my group members.
Members of the in world store group will be allowed to have a smaller version that has been made into a personal sized meditation space.
Parts of it are very high land impact. I didn’t really make this worrying about that. I wanted it to have certain elements so it has those elements. You can edit or leave off certain parts if you like and never use them or use all of it…
A special group only vendor will be placed at the landing near the Fantasy Faire Sign that you can access. Make your group active, pay 1L that will be refunded and get it. I’ll leave it up until I return from my business in real life on the 8th.
I am going to post the story, the inspiration and reasons behind Chaddul Ro here on my personal store blog. It will also be posted I believe on the https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com/ sponsors interviews. There is more to the interview but this is the bulk of it… if you are curious, read ahead.
You might want to get some kleenex though… I have had more than one person who has pre-read it as I was editing tell me that I suck.
How was Chaddul Ro born? What inspired it, what is its story?
** warning label attached** Long text ahead.
I have been asked how much of my story am I going to share this year, and I couldn’t figure out how to answer that. There is the faire answer, the concept and the idea of the orcs and then there is the personal answer. What do we share? I have talked about this with a few people and one of my favorite responses to it was… “*f* it, say it, do it, the people who get it will, the people who don’t never will.”
Whenever I do one of these sims I put a reason or dedication to it. From specific family members to concepts or ideas… feelings.
The orcs of Chaddul Ro! Chaddul Ro is the name of the outpost, the orcs are part of a tribe called the Chal Khizzur. I got a little bit fancier this time around creating something of a persona that I would draw upon as I created it. These orcs are fiercely protective and strong. The whole concept was about strength.
