History

The story of the Fair Land starts eons ago, when the faerie folk lived along humans, made by their dreams and hopes. When the humans stopped believing in fairies, the fey folk found themselves without a land to live, and the greatest lords among the fairies made a pact with Lucifer Morningstar for a new land. Lucifer gave them a part of Hell, and in pay the fairy folks must pay as tithe every seven years with seven of their fairest and wisest to join him in Hell. This was the beginning of the Fair Land, and with time, the origins of the pact was forgotten, but the pay kept been made.[1]

In those years the land was united, and there where only one kingdom, the Seelie court. During the Kingdom of Obrey existed a Sapphire, that was told contained the essence of the fay land. This made the Finvarra, a nobleman and noble advisor of the King jelous of power, and led a rebellion against his masters. The war was hard on the land, and as a result the sapphire cracked and became two pieces. The twilight shard, Sholas, represented the Seelie court; the other piece, the dawn shard, Breacadh, represented the new force of the land, the Unseelie court.[2]

The Fair Lands are home of different mythical beings, been more prominent from the Seelie court, under the rule of Queen Titania and King Auberon, the fairys and the flitlings, among other species. From the Unseelie court, there are fairys, goblins, hobgoblins and redcaps, besides the Host. There are also trolls, brownies, and humans around the Fair land who serves one court or another. Humans that comes to the Fair Land and lives for some time may gain magic, from the land, from the air, from the food, and with time they may be even be considered 'fairies'.

The faeries uses to play trick on humans, or grant them boons, if they had been pleased. The kingdom has many and different rules that are older than the kingdom itself, and other social customs that had been added with time. The norms of behavior that are suggested to be followed for the visitors are to don't ask any question or favors from those who are meet; to not accept any gift, food-stuff or favors from those who meet; always act with etiquette, and never stray from the path. Also, the visitors can't enter with cold iron, as it can repels, contain or cause harm to faeries.[3]
