Realms Faire 2015

The 2015 Realms Faire! 

Twitter Hashtag – #RealmsFaire

Welcome one and all to Realms Faire 2015! If you are here to visit the Hall of Doors, the following image will serve as your portal...

Otherwise, continue in order to reach more such portals to other events. 


4th Annual Joust

Up to 10 knights can joust. Each will battle daily. Magic words will be granted to each knight to pass out to their adoring fans. Knights score points by commenters using their magic words. Knight with the most points at the end of the week wins. What does the knight win? A year of promo on my blog in the slider and a tumbler printed with your championship boasts and badge.

Winners are drawn daily from the adoring crowds.


Beware the Vortex

A vortex opens. Five people are trapped in the Underworld with only one way out – challenge an immortal to a contest of skill. The odds are against those brave enough to accept but enthusiastic fans can help them win their freedom with magic words given to each contestant. Daily prizes awarded to each challenger and a commenter chosen at random.


Dueling Bards

One writer's character squares off with another writer’s darling. Which character wins the duel? The audience decides. Daily prizes.


Unicorn Hunt

You are charged with tracking down the unicorns!

Every day, a new blogger will host a photo. You will have to find the unicorns in the image, much like the famous “Where’s Waldo?” Leave a comment stating how many unicorns you find in that image. The most correct guesses out of five, wins.

Prizes will include books and gift cards.

Five images – many unicorns – only one winner!


The Hero’s Dilemma

Heroes beware! Here at the House of Hero’s Dilemma, a new cliff-hanging adventure will dangle new heroes above the depths of destiny or despair. In 100 words or less, a hero will face a danger in story form.

Each day, the people of Realsmdom will decide the fate of these heroes in three sentences or less. If fateful endings are giving answer in poetic form, an extra entry for prizes will be awarded.

Daily e-book prizes will be awarded via random name-pulling from the entries. Everyone is invited to participate.

People of Realmsom, you have the power of storytelling might to decide the fate of the would-be heroes. Will they die in glory or shame, live in victory or defeat? It is up to you.

And, after you have decided the fate of the Hero’s Dilemma, try your hand at the other Realms Faire Events for more fun and prizes!



A simple word game. Prizes drawn daily.


Soak-A-Bloke and Drench-A-Wench

Come by and soak a blogging friend with wet sponges… or witticisms. Prizes drawn daily.


Who Roams Here

Each day I will give clues to a famous ghost from literature or movies. I’ll give new clues throughout the day until someone guesses the right ghost. The first one to guess correctly will get a $5 Amazon gift card and a bundle of ebooks.The only rule is that the same person can’t win the daily game more than once.

At the end of the week everyone who left a comment will be entered into a drawing for the grand prize which is a $30 Amazon gift card and a bundle of ebooks.


Riddle Me This

I am a book so popular they made a movie of me. Within the what if realms I lie. Horror? Fantasy? Or am I Sci-Fi? A riddle every day during the Realms Faire for you to take your best guess and have a chance to win a prize most splendid.


Hall of Doors

Each door is numbered and gives a peak at the book behind it. The blurb is available to help you out. In the comments section, guess the title of the book corresponding to the numbered doors to stand a chance to win. You may guess at any number of doors to enter.


Stockade Brigade

Warrants of arrest have been issued for select authors accusing them of witchery and wizardry. The pillory has been erected and the trial dates set.

Good people of Realmsdom, I call upon you to bear witness to these trials and offer your testimony for or against the author’s crimes.

Points will be awarded for wordsmithing a comment in your best Olde English afore 8 of the clock in the Eastern time on the following scale:

5-Ye speak as one from the days of Queen Bess.

4-Ye could pass muster as a Ren Faire cast member

3-Ye could pass as a Ren Faire attendee

2-Ye wouldn’t be foolin’ yer mother

1-Ye stand out like the sun in a cloudless sky

An e-book will be given every day to the witness who scores the most points. Fear not, your daily score will be accumulated and the person with the highest score shall receive a special prize at the end of the week. So, brush off your Olde English and prepare to testify.


Prize packages up for raffle.



  1. The Realms Faire is such an amazing affair!! Have fun, everyone!

  2. Seeing it around a ton sure looks like fun.

  3. So cool to see what this Faire entails. A Velociraffle sounds both horrifying and exciting. Is the prize getting ripped limb from limb by a dinosaur? Because if so... I still might enter. You just don't get that kind of opportunity on a daily basis.

  4. Thanks for stopping by, M.J!

    Thanks Alex!

    Oh it is, Pat.

    Hi Beer guys! Alas, the prizes are books and Amazon vouchers. But if you use your imaginations...

  5. Sounds like a great Realms Faire. Awesome!

  6. I like the idea of dueling characters. On the other hand, can you imagine if a character like Harry Potter and Tolkien's hobbits teamed up together?

  7. Thanks for the shout-out! It's been a fun first day!

  8. I am having so much fun with all of these clever games. :)

  9. This sounds like a very cool Faire! :) Have fun!!!

  10. Y'all sure are having a lot of fun with the Realms Faire his year. It keeps getting better and better every year. But alas, this old wench has scant time to play. (Mayhaps I can draw ye all a draught of lager when 'tis done...)

    (A Beer for the Shower's comment is hilarious.)

  11. Lots of fun at the Realms Faire!!

    (Thanks for shedding light on the Madame Du Barry situation, Misha)

  12. Yay for the faire! See, I knew I'd be too overwhelmed to come play this year, but I'm having fun bouncing around to all the posts today.

  13. Good day, Misha. I'm going to toddle back to the faire. Which booth are you in?

  14. Sounds super fun! I've never heard of this, but look forward to learning more. :) Enjoy!
