This year’s Fairelands Quest– The Tale of Exiles – sends you on a search for the Ten Exiles from the accursed land of Malfience, a land the Bard Queen is determined to aid. Each day the Faire is running, we will be introducing you to a different Exile. They all have stories to tell … and some of these may give you clues to help you in your Quest to perilous Malfience!
More news has come in about the dangerous fugitives, rumoured to be hiding out in the Faireland – as we warned in our recent post. Now further news has come in from Steelhead, where their crimes were apparently committed.
Demetrius “Fuzzball” Ortega, Marshal of Steelhead City, has informed us that he and his deputies – the famed “nun gunnies” – were investigating an anonymous tip regarding a disturbance at the home of a Mr. Carruthers.
The Sisters and the Marshal arrived to find the……”Questers” in the house, standing over the dead body of Mr Carruthers.
They were taken in for questioning.
And that should have been that …
Except that a mysterious accomplice disguised themselves as one of the deputies, bringing the Marshal some tea.
The tea was drugged, and as the Marshal passed out, they made their escape – having previously drugged the Deputies too!
Now the Marshal says that he has received a variety of communications suggesting that these “Questers” are in the Fairelands!
The Marshal says: “If you see one of these Questers, alert the Fairelands officials. They have the facilities for holding all ne’er do wells. Above all, neither approach them yourselves, nor assist them in any way. It is quite evident that they are very dangerous criminals.”
Note on the Quest for the Golden Prim:
There are several mysterious characters visiting the Faire with the words “Quest for the Golden Prim” or more simply the cryptic “QGP” in their titler. If you speak to them, they’ll be happy to tell you more – and they’ll share their calling cards with you too. It’s said that they’re based at the Explorers’ Club on Lotus Valley Dream – where it is rumoured that this delightful establishment is harbouring secrets of its own (as well as the ONLY washroom in the whole of the Fairelands!).
In fact, on Saturday 27th, there will be a party at the Explorer’s Club (Oriental Branch) from 2pm – 5pm to celebrate the relaunch of the Quest for the Golden Prim. And – as the party begins, we suspect that some – at least – of the Fugitives will be safely under lock and key!
The Sheriffs’ Association issued a warning today that the notorious Steelhead Three had been sighted here in the Fairelands. Dr Ephemera Wirefly, Professor Andrew McMinn and Miss Hortensia Primm are wanted by the authorities in Steelhead City, and Sheriffs warn that any sightings should be reported to them immediately. They add that Fairelanders should not approach these individuals, as they are considered dangerous.
Have you heard about these dangerous fugitives on the loose at the Fantasy Faire? They are allegedly part of something called The Quest for the Golden Prim. Some say that it’s nothing more than an expedition for explorers; others hint at a dark conspiracy – a mysterious cabal whose tentacles reach through the Steamlands … and beyond.
At all events. there are several mysterious characters visiting the Faire with the words “Quest for the Golden Prim” or more simply the cryptic “QGP” in their titler. If you speak to them, they’ll be happy to tell you more – and they’ll share their calling cards with you too. It’s said that they’re based at the Explorers’ Club on Lotus Valley Dream – where it is rumoured that this delightful establishment is harbouring secrets of its own (as well as the ONLY washroom in the whole of the Fairelands!).
But while all the Questers have seemed friendly and harmless, word has now reached us that three of there number were taken in for questioning about a gruesome murder in Steelhead. They subsequently escaped … and having seemingly made their way here to the Faire – so watch out for them!
Will they be found? Will they be caught and brought to face justice? You can play your part by watching out for them – and cunningly questioning them … See how many Golden Prim trading cards you can collect – either from Questers you meet at the Faire, or from the Explorers’ Club.
