    Default [Festival] The Sun Festival

    [move]THE FESTIVAL OF THE SUN[/move]
    The Festival Of The Sun
    First Impressions:
    The druids are speaking a rite centuries old around a prismatic glass orb, *itís high noon and the sun shines brightly straight down on the orb it causes flashes of brilliance and the *flash seers the eyes of on lookers.
    Back Story: million of years ago when the sun was young and the people naÔve and foolish they believed the sun needed to be embraced *by people in order for it to function, thus people of small farming communities began to wonder how they must do this. A man, came to one of the farming towns he was a elvin glass blower he had made small prismatic orbs that shined mildly in the sun, one day a young boy apprenticed to him, after years of hard work the boy understood it all. after this the now 30 year old man went to the sun druids and showed them how to make prismatic orb about twenty feet *large in order to acknowledge the sunís radiance and beauty soon the ritual spread to the near by communities and has been a staple of farm life ever since.
    The Activities of the festival: at the beginning of sunrise the druids go out and begin to blow glass in order to have it ready by noon, most people watch after they get started from around 7 to 9 and then tour the festivals many merchants shops and magic items from about 9 to 11:45 then every one heads off to see the ritual.
    Modifications: On the day of the festival no one is allowed to work the fields, merchants must close their shops at 11:45 due to the rest of the day being spent hearing about the power of the sun its effect on crops ect.
