Minstrel Fair

Minstrel Fair logo"In a time gone to dust so long ago that history never knew to record it, a vast and terrible spell was cast out of desperation, and magic vanished from the world. Supposedly." From A History of the Folk (unsanctioned)

We see magic all the time: The sleight-of-hand artists on street corners, stage magicians, performances in movies and at fairs. It's a moment of entertainment in our lives, there and gone except for moments of nostalgic recall in later years.

It never occurs to us that what we've witnessed might be real.

What if the myths and fairy tales we grew up with hold more than a grain of truth? This is the world of Minstrel Fair, where magic has always shared this world with us often seen but rarely recognized.

Meet The Harper's Children - a troupe of players who make their living performing at medieval fairs across the country. Snow and Darke, the jugglers; Blaze, the dancer; Thanda, the fortuneteller; Lyric, the taleweaver; and Quillon, the harper. Some are human, some much more. They have always known of magic and lived in its realm at peace with its denizens and the status quo. But not everyone is satisfied with the way things are and they will soon be drawn into a conflict that could spill over into the human world with devastating results.
