The International Firebringer Apprecation Society (IFAS) is the leading & (probably) only organisation devoted to Meredith Ann Pierce's wonderful work. The Society came into being on 28 April, 1997 and was co-founded by Me (Calydor) and Kristin Olsen (Ryhenna). The offical IFAS site for members to meet is the MSN community called Unicorns of the Vale.  After a long period of dormany the society has acquired new members and is looking much more active. IFAS members can sometimes be found

Society Activities

Role-Playing sessions - We have an open RPG called Alma's World, and various closed RPG's can be found running from time to time on the RPG board. The Current one being a historical RPG set 200 years before the time of the Firebringer featuring a battle for the Vale between two groups - The Watchers and The Valedwellers.This is now closed to entry, but look out for the next open RPG after that! Also, Impromptu spontanteous RPG can be found on the general board.  Planned closed RPG's featuring  future Firebringer storylines can be found at Alayha's Nest at her Firebringer Fanboard, which also features opportunitys for IFAS members to run their own RPG's, both canon and non-canon. Alternatively firebringer associated RPG's can be found at the City of Fire and The Divine Star Valley.

Discussions - we spend many a time discussing the morals, meanings, implications and intricacies of the Firebringer Trilogy at the Vale community. Discussions can range from various topics featuring the firebringer storyline and firebringer characters, or other topics such as a firebringer film, songs and theme tunes
