Tonight I explore the Fantasy Faire 2023 region Nysaris.
Sponsor: Belle Epoque & Harshlands
Designers: Kadaj Yoshikawa & Janire Coba
My first stop is the hall of heroes. Turning to the right (having entered from Sialdor) and walking by the quayside, past the statues of the seasons with Laocoon and his sons, I come to the entrance to the great hall, about which I will simply post a picture and advise that you also visit and read the names of the heroes.
Next stop, Viki to pick up something more appropriate to wear here. All my Fantasy Faire wear tends to be medieval or Victorian. I need something more classical. A bit short for a peplos, but it will do!
A classical Greek town, Nysaris was once the site of a great battel between gods, their followers and an ancient evil. Now a peaceful place, the memory of the warriors’ sacrifice is preserved in the hall of heroes.
A strong Mediterranean vibe fills the region. I can almost feel the warmth of the sun (which given how cool it’s gone where I live, is very welcome). The town is in very good repair, though some of the streets are covered in sand and hardy grasses. None of the buildings or walls are in disrepair. There are tree shaded benches to rest on if shopping has tired you out.
Overall I really like Nysaris. It has a warm, peaceful feel. It’s enjoyable to just relax here for a bit as well as shop.
No tumbledown ancient ruin, this is a living, breathing Greek town from the classical period. There’s not even a threatening volcano on the horizon!
And yes, it’s also a shopping region, which is just as well as I was able to get an outfit to fit in almost immediately after walking across the boundary.
