Fairy (Fae) Clans
Hello Pixie Pals, my name is Adraya and I am a tree
fairy of the Dryad clan. All of my brothers and sisters, cousins, aunts,
uncles, and my friends (plus my parents) are also Dryads. We live in the
forests among the great groves of trees, which we watch over and protect. We
call these sanctuaries nemetons, and this is where we build our palace, our
temples, our playgrounds, and our homes.
SInce your fairy element determines whether you are an
Earth, Wind, Fire, or Water fairy, the clan assigned to your group will be
one from the trooping fairies; that is, the fairies of mixed clans. These
fairies roam the skies, the earth, the oceans, and the deserts. Their power
comes from diversity, which is a greater advantage because they are not
limited to one area (such as the forests or the ocean) or one skill. You CAN
play this game without membership in a Fairy Clan, but it's a little harder
and not nearly as much fun.
How to Join a Clan
1) Talk to your friends and find
five other girls (plus yourself) to play this game.
2) Ask your mother (or one of the
other girls' mothers) to be the Fairy Queen. You can also ask a sister,
aunt, or other adult that is 18 years of age or older. Be sure that the
Fairy Queen reads the rules below and understands the responsibilities of
being a Clan Fairy Queen.
3) Each girl in the clan must earn
12 peaks (or points) to get their fairy names (that's one or maybe two
charms plus one or two pixie pockets). See the Charms
page, the Pixie Pockets page, and/or the
Fairy Name page for more information.
4) Ask your Fairy Queen to have a
pixie party where you and your five (or more) friends can get together and
make your pixie pockets and fairy dust. See the
Pixie Pockets page and the
Fairy Dust page for instructions about how to
make these items.
5) Next (at the party), make a list
of each girl's full name (first, middle, and last).
* Be sure to include second
middle names if anyone has two middle names (for example: Laura Lynn Ashley
* Beside their name, write
down their birthdate (month, day, year), time of birth including am or pm, and the charms plus the peak values
they are submitting for their fairy names. For example:
Ellis - October 12, 2001, 11:03 am - white feather = 6; blue feather = 6;
total = 12
* We use a formula to turn
your birth name into your FIRST fairy name. We use your birth date to assign
your fairy MIDDLE name. And then your clan name becomes your fairy LAST
name. For example:
a. If your name
is Laura Lynn Ashley Hill, your Fairy FIRST name would be Willow.
b. If your
birthdate is May 21, 2001, 9:33 pm, your fairy element is Earth, so your fairy MIDDLE name
would be Damara. Not everyone with this birth date has a middle name
c. Your Fairy
LAST name is based on the Clan Name we assign to your group. So, if we
assign your group the Clan Name of Torridon (which means the hills of Wester
Ross in Scotland), your FULL FAIRY NAME would be: Willow Damara Torridon,
and all of the members in your clan would have the same fairy LAST name of
6) Next, take a photograph (with
your digital camera or your phone) of the group AND one of each individual
girl standing (or sitting) behind
a table (or on the floor) with your pixie pockets and your charms. Place
each charm on top of each pixie pocket with each girl standing (or sitting)
behind her charms and pockets, then shoot the photos.
7) Ask the Fairy Queen to email the
list of girl's names, birthdates, and photos that show everyone
with their charms and pixie pockets to our Fairy Druid Queen:
8) Our Druid Queen will email back
with your clan names and all of your members' fairy names in three to five
days. Once your clan is
established, you're ready to play the game of Fairy Magic.
9) After you get your fairy names,
ask your Fairy Queen to order Fairy Magic Workbooks for everyone and have
another pixie party so she can show you how to track your charms and pockets
in your workbook. See the Fairy Queens page
Fairy Clan Rules
1) You earn your fairy name by
collecting charms and then trading those peak values for a name, but your
Clan Fairy Name is issued based on the clan you join; so if you aren't a
clan member, you won't have a Clan Fairy Name.
2) Clans must have a minimum of six
members. Clans can be as large as you like, but no smaller than six people.
3) Each clan must have a Fairy Queen
(she's like a den mother); that is, an adult 18 years of age or older. The
Fairy Queen is usually one of the clan member's mothers, big sisters, or
other relatives. The Fairy Queen hosts the pixie parties where the clan
member fairies gather to share adventures such as field trips to an
arboretum to collect leaves, an aviary to collect feathers, or to the beach
to collect seashells. Pixie parties are also held in one of the clan fairy's
homes or at the Fairy Queen's palace where the fairy members learn how to
make pixie pockets, pouches, fairy dust, and other fun fairy treasures.
The Fairy Queen also distributes the higher-level
prizes to the clan fairies when they have collected enough charms (and pixie
pockets) to earn these rewards. They also plan and host the clan ceremonies,
which occur when clan members graduate to the higher levels (like graduation
from high school or college).
4) You must be in a clan to earn
pixie pearls. See the Pixie Pearls page for
more information about this higher level.
5) Clans are eligible for global
contests that occur periodically throughout the year. Contests are usually
based on the number of peaks your clan earns in a specific amount of time
and winners can earn prizes that reap financial benefits (in other words,
prizes that equal money).
