... post one of several.
I have been fighting my way across Fantasy Faire, which some of the readership-at-very-small will remember from last year. This RFL-based fantasy-themed shopping event runs until the 28th of this month, so there's still a few days left. There is also a hunt, of some kind, going on there, but I'm not participating in that, for reasons which may or may not become apparent.
I say "fighting" my way across, because I am using the current version of the LL viewer, and having many and frustrating difficulties with it. There may be more on this topic: consider yourselves warned. And, of course, a bunch of sims with lots of visitors and lots of vendors and a bunch of stores where SL's content creators have gone hog-wild trying to make impressive stuff... well, this all taxes the viewer, rather a lot.
On the plus side, last year I went through Fantasy Faire on my clapped-out lappy, and this year I have a proper one, so that should be better. So, let me (grudgingly) put complaints to one side, and talk about what's actually there.
If you go via the official link, you will start off in the Fairelands Junction, which offers portals to all the other sims.
Anyway. The Faire sims are laid out in a hollow rectangle, with the Junction in the bottom left corner. I'm going to go around them clockwise, because that's how I visited them. So, heading north, we come to Magnificat.
This is sponsored by Fallen Gods, who did that rather elegant build with the classical temples sticking out of the water, last year. This is still classical, still elegant - and, in fact, uses mesh buildings, so it's rather more modern - but it somehow didn't grab me as much. It is a sort of peaceful, Mediterranean kind of a sim, with an aura of decaying gentility about it. It's nice. I was pleased. But I was, somehow, not impressed.
Anyway. I shall break this up here, I think, and continue around the ring in my next.
