Lore

King Iaric IV of Prevalia invites all citizens of the realm to The King's Faire! Celebrating the strength and unity of Prevalia for over 70 years, the King's Faire has brought generations together amidst hardship and turmoil to revel and put aside their troubles.

Originally held by King Calym III beginning in the years following the tyrannical rules of the Mad Emperors and the sacking of Lower Prevalia, the King's Faire was a way to help heal the suffering and pain of the Prevalian people, as well as a method of raising money to help Prevalia rise to power once more. The Faire has since become a tradition observed by citizens across all three Kingdoms -- with games, entertainments, refreshments, and more for all to enjoy!

For the sake of keeping the King’s peace, the Faire, with the aid of Dornoll the Druid, is held on a hidden island known only to the Druids. For that reason, all who wish to partake in the merriment must climb aboard the ferry conveniently located at the Prevalian docks.

So come try your hand at the Axe Throw, Jousting, Ladder Golf, the Dunk Tank (a long-standing tradition of ‘drowning’ the Mad Emperor Linus, and the grief that followed his reign), Boxing, and much more! Special vendors and merchants shall make their unique wares available! Come watch the realm’s finest jugglers and fire breathers! Participate in the King's Faire Fishing Tournament!

Most of all, come and enjoy yourself! The ferry departs from Prevalia harbor!

Once the Opening Ceremony (Saturday, August 10th at 2pm EST) has been held, there will be a permanent Ferry/Moongate that can be found at the Prevalian Harbor, southeast of the main bank, which leads to the Fairegrounds.

The King's Faire is its own region, where players:

  • Cannot perform negative actions onto others
  • Cannot cast spells
  • Can play Faire Games and earn prizes


Schedule

The Faire will be split into two weeks, at which point all scores will reset and start anew. At the end of Week 1 and Week 2, King's Faire Champions will be awarded their prizes. On Sunday, August 25th the King's Faire will be free to play, but no prizes will be awarded. We hope this will allow EVERYONE to partake in the fun and experience the Faire before the Fairgrounds are shuttered until next time.

  • Week 1: August 10-17
  • Week 2: August 18-24
  • Free Play Day: August 25
