Yes, we’re back, for the 4th Annual HP Lovecraft Festival of SecondLife… LOVEFEST 2015,
scheduled for August 15-23, 2015!
– HP Lovecraft’s 125th Birthday
– “The Worlds of Lovecraft”
– “The Heart of LLhao”, a Lovecraft-inspired, multi-sim Adventure [Please note: Join the story-quest group from the packet offered at the landing spot of the event. Details of starting time and how to proceed will be given when the Story Quest begins]
– AUTCOM (The National Autism Committee), our long-term adopted charity returns.
The Lovefest SIM theme is based on the “Worlds of Lovecraft” so expect to see bits of the re-created real life and fantasy worlds of the great storyteller, H.P. Lovecraft. From the insane asylum representing where both of HP Lovecraft’s parents died, to scenes from his famous tales (i.e., “The Lurking Fear, and “The Festival), you will be amazed, delighted and frightened by the sometimes mundane and other times fantastic sights. The “Cabaret” facade will take you to the entertainment venue. Look for the listing of all events on the side of the main-TP dome or visit this link.

OUR CHARITY FOCUS – AUTCOM:
Since 2013, Lovecraft Festival has been pleased to raise support for AutCom – the Autism National Committee. To date, all of the festival’s vendor fees, as well on-site donations at the festival, have gone straight to AutCom’s coffers in order to help this agency’s mission of increasing awareness and education concerning Autism Spectrum conditions. In fact, one of AutCom’s board members is an active member of the Lovecraft Festival staff.
THE EVENT AND VENDOR FAIRE:
The festival involves a faire of events, activities and vendors with each festival having a different overall theme or concept. Musical events stage shows, parties, carnival rides and all the fun that comes with a classic faire/festival are a regular part of Lovecraft Festival, along with splendid full-scale stores that vendors secure and decorate to their individual needs and wants.
2015 STORY QUEST- The Heart of Llhao:
This year’s Festival will be taking on a new task – coordinating an exciting multi-sim “story quest.” This will be a sort of mystery hunt with a distinct Lovecraft-themed bent and guaranteed “Big Finale” sure to thrill all!
Each “chapter” in the story will be at a different “host sim” or parcel, and the story followers will be challenged with following clues and collecting evidence and items to track an ancient artifact stolen from the Miskatonic University. The Festival’s “story staff” is working with sims and sites interested in hosting a “chapter” in the story, which will provide the links in the path the questers must follow to reach the story’s inevitable end.
