Hear Ye, Hear Ye!



The annual Realms Faire is approaching. It runs November 9th – 13th 2015. I’m looking for vict—I mean, volunteers to stand against the immortals in a contest. The game is called:

Just Another Day in Purgatory

Beware the Vortex

Here’s the scenario:

Evil is afoot. Chronos has accidentally created a vortex while cleaning his hourglass, plunging a few unfortunate souls into Lucien’s Bar, gateway to the Underworld. Now they are trapped. Lucien wants to keep them but will give each hapless victim one chance to earn their freedom. His condition? Enter a contest of skills with an immortal opponent of his/her choosing.

Do you think you can survive a swordfight with War? How about wend your way through a carnivorous garden to get to Gaia’s treehouse? Or weave a portion of the Great Tapestry of Life while avoiding Atropos’ giant pair of life-ending scissors? Perhaps you’re brave enough to challenge Death to a peanut-eating contest? Or whip up a batch of punch with Jezebel, the Master Poisoner? Do you have what it takes to win your way out of Lucien’s grasp?

Your mission: on the day you appear in the contest you will post on your own blog, or gather together your Facebook and/or Twitter friends and provide a link to this blog, pleading (begging works too) with your loyal supporters to come to your aid over here and cheer you on to victory. Their comments will decide your fate. Plead well, for you will need their strength to endure. Others might seek to cast their votes with the immortals.

Rewards? Yes! Besides winning your freedom (hopefully), each volunteer (that would be you) who is locked in the struggle will receive an Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card. In addition, a few lucky commenters will be picked at random to receive a gift card at the end of the Faire.

Interested? Leave a comment below or email me RiverFairchildAuthor@gmail.com

There are a number of blogs participating in the Realms Faire and many prizes to be had, including a Grand Prize at the end of the Faire. If you’d like to run a game yourself and/or contribute a prize (ebook, gift card, artwork, swag, anything you can come up with), go here to sign up. http://mpaxauthor.com/realmsfaire/

  1. Ooooh.
    She who fights and runs away, lives to run another day. My wimpy self will be cheering (and occasionally jeering) from the sidelines. Swigging on Jezebel's delicious addictive punch.

    1. EC - Your cheers and jeers will be most welcome to our contests, methinks. Please be careful when imbibing the punch and don't lean too far over in the stands, lest you become part of the action!

  2. Greetings, River,

    I can at least send out the message via the various social "notworking" sites, yes indeed, even "Farcebook"!

    I'm currently in ye olde dungeon and shall be in this predicament for some time to come. After my dungeon time, the good news is that I will be plelted in ye olde market public square with a
    variety of rotting fruit and vegetables. The mad raven delivered this message...

    Gary :)

    1. Gary - The mad raven is guarding you? Things must be dire, indeed! Beware the rotting fruit and vegetables. I hear they can be quite painful. Please take comfort while in the dungeon, knowing my thoughts are with you. I've been there many a time myself. Incorrigible, aren't we?

      Many thanks for spreading the word through the social "notworks." Your efforts are much appreciated!

    I'd be willing to fight War!

    1. Alex - Woot! You got the gig, Alex! War will be sharpening his blade in anticipation. Gather your loyal followers and get ready to rumble. Bring your guitar too. It can't hurt. ;)

  4. That sounds interesting! I'm not sure if I'd win if I fought in that war. *gulps*

    1. Chrys - You never know what tricks might pop up in the contests, but having supporters to cheer you on usually counteracts the effects... except another vortex, of course!

  5. Like EC, I'll be cheering and jeering from the sidelines. Please let your contestants know, River, they'll be going up against some of my favorite immortals, especially the punch-maker, Jezebel. One glass of her beverage and I become immortal myself!

    1. Ron - You do realize Jez puts an extra little something in your punch, don't you? I think she called it an Adoration spell... ;)
      I know the immortals will be happy to have your voice in the crowd!

  7. Hi, River,

    Sound AWESOME. I would love to fight for my life, but sadly I will be moving at that time... CHANGING my life, once again. Hopefully I'll have a home to move to by then and leave FREEZING Chicago for SUNNY FLORIDA before I get ICED!

    1. Michael - Moving is so taxing! I'd suggest the vortex as a shortcut but who knows where you might end up? ;) Best of luck with your new adventure!
