In a land much like ours...

While the newest heir to the Arzswin family is trying to gain influence over the city, the once renowned city guard is struggling to keep theirs as the need for grand adventure steadily declines.

Festivals and Events

Those celebrated all over Harlant, and those which are a regional variant specific to Banwalt

Harlant

Harvest festival & feast. End of september. Usually two to three days. A large get together, especially in the countryside, where people give thanks to each other, the magic surrounding them and/or assorted guardian spirits for the plentiful harvest, share their best crops and drink and eat together.

Carneval. Late February. Lasts a week. Urban festivals where the rich flaunt their wealth and throw parties and parades, often to honor themselves or simply for amusement. Citizens and even commoners are often allowed to participate and enjoy free food and drink.

Birthdays of the acting rulers. They are celebrated with small feasts all over the country and a lavish parade in Maenstat, which is an attraction known all over the continent. The ruler in question allows the public an audience on that day, and throws a ball in their honor in the evening. No executions or trials may be held on this day, and war efforts and armed conflicts are halted whenever possible.

Banwalt

Day of the river . Early May. People gather around the large river and offer flowers in full bloom to the water. They honor the guardian spirit of the river, Flux, but also ask xem to grant a personal wish with their flower.

Bastien/ne’s day. Mid-October. A large parade is held in honor of the guardian spirit of the city, Bastien/ne, culminating in a festival in the very core of the city. Featuring exotic stalls and performers, magic and acrobatics, storytellers and a show of the city’s most famous exports and products, it draws in guests from all over the country.

Knight’s day. Early November. The anniversary of the knight’s treaty that brought peace between city and forest. Envoy’s of the forest and of the city meet at the border and sign the treaty anew in a grand gesture. Afterwards, humans and folk share a feast.

Founder’s day. Late August. The anniversary of the founding of the city. The founder’s family opens their house for one day to accept honors from their citizens, and thanks them for their words with gifts.
