Leave no stone unturned
Several festivals have been established to signify the change of seasons on the new continent. Each climate change is separate from the main continent. Festivals are held in the main area of Mola Anda and are recognized by all factions and Gods. Each festival lasts approximately one week but some are known to go longer depending on attendance.
This event represents the start of warmer humid temperatures. Druidic factions take a special interest in this festival and decorate the main city with flowers and saplings brought from the native land. Daruun, Goddess of agriculture, Vale, Goddess of birth, Benikio, Goddess of wild animals, and Tus’Alim, God of the forest, have promised to make appearances. Along with the Gods’ visits, Blarek sends the high mage council to Mola Anda in order to check on the citizens and to show its direct support.
Months after Green Rose, the climate changes to become more arid and hot. Mola Anda celebrates with entertainment brought from all regions. Dona and her followers set up tents to tell stories every hour of the day during the festival. Lines of royalty set up jousting tournaments while the more hardy adventurers challenge each other in bare knuckled fights. Forn, the God of Dwarves, appeared the first year but it was speculated this was only because of the heavy amount of alcoholic beverages being served.
The Lost Travels festival, also known as Trading Day, is held on the following day of the first morning chill. Sithir’s presence brings traders from the mainland to Mola Anda and they have been known to trade a large amount of goods for materials that are native to the land. Temilian, the God of travel, also makes several appearances since some people prefer to spend the upcoming harsh weather in an established city on the mainland. Gnome’s Landing also has close ties to Temilian and claims to have established routes from Mola Anda to almost anywhere on the other continent.
On the day of the first snow on Mola Anda, the festival Wolf’s Hunt begins. It represents the colder climate change. Most travelers prefer temperate weather so city activity is naturally low during this time. A great feast is prepared and served in the main halls of town. Dipthi, Goddess of the Fey, is invited in order to raise morale and play harmless tricks on the citizens of Mola Anda. Lorthor, God of the sun and light, comes to reassure his followers of the better times to come but is always followed by Krazier, God of the moon and night, and Nethul, Goddess of blight, who remind the population of the morbid times ahead.
