Fairyvision Guest Post by J.L.Bryan

Today J. L. Bryan has taken over my blog with a guest post to celebrate the release of Fairyvision, his 5th book in the Songs of Magic series.  I leave you all in the capable hands of J. L. Bryan.

Songs of Magic Game: Player Tokens
from J. L. Bryan

To celebrate the release of Fairyvision, the fifth book in the Songs of Magic series, I’ve dreamed up elements of a Songs of Magic board game (which does not actually exist in any form...) and asked some bloggers to share them as guest posts. Michelle was kind enough to post today’s instalment  in which we see some of the “tokens” players can use to represent themselves on the game board. Do you want to be the fairy or the goblin? Or perhaps the teddy bear? Which best represents your board-gaming self?

Fairy: Smallish and pretty (yes, even the males), fairies prefer to spend their time dancing to music and making cute little crafts, but they can be quite dangerous and vindictive when crossed! Fairies also have wings, which makes it super-easy to get around.

Goblin: The laziest, sloppiest, stinkiest Folk in Faerie, goblins are also rumored to be extremely intelligent. Nobody can be entirely certain, though, because goblins are extremely lazy as well. Rumor has it that they could accomplish much more if only they applied themselves, but goblins are so sick of hearing that.

Leprechaun: The luckiest of all Folk, leprechauns enjoy working, gambling, and tricking others out of their gold. Leprechauns can be quite charming and dazzling, which is useful when one is in the process of bilking others.

Teddy Bear: In Fairy Blues and Fairystruck, we meet the thuggish Teddy Bears of Zarmof—brigands and ne’er-do-wells whose crimes are notorious all over Faerie. They make cute player pieces, though, don’t they?

Race Car: There are no race cars in Faerie, nor any internal-combustion-engine-type-thing. The major forms of transportation are goat-drawn wagons, giant caterpillars for mass transit, and wings (if you have them). However, marketing research shows that a “race car” is a very popular player token in board games, and so the manufacturers have included one here.

  1. Can I be a goblin driving the race car LOL What a treat, I know it does not exist, but you might consider it there is definitely a target market if only for the cuteness factor. Thank you for making me smile :)

  2. Okay, I'm pretty sure my 13 yr old son is a Goblin. He fits all the characteristics. Super intelligent, lazy, could accomplish a lot more if he applied himself, sloppy, Oh holy,goblin whiskers! We haven't seen his floor in two years and that's after we've asked him to clean it up. And apparently he needs to put deodorant on every 15 minutes or he's lying about using it because he stinks. Really it's that bad. If Jeff wanted to do a life size version my 13 yr old could play the goblin! But he'd probably fight Denise Z for the race car!
