To be completely honest and upfront, I'm half making this thread so we haven't gone a full year without a post here. :lol:

As many players and readers of Forgotten Realms material might know, Shieldmeet is the setting's version of a Leap Day. Many cultures and religions attach significance to this day, whether it be the hosting of games, feasts, or the renewing of oaths and contracts.

Is anyone aware of(or would like to conjecture) what sort of Shieldmeet traditions we might have in our Amian locales?

Maybe Wharftown has a Fish-Fest and in Nesek merchants traditionally sell their wears for a copper a piece. With one coming up next year(2020/1388 DR) it's not too early to get the ball rolling on ideas. There are plenty of real life inspirations to draw from(the Roman festivals, Feast Days, Jubilee, the Olympic games, etc). And past events to build upon(Kohlingen had a traditional chivalrous tourney at one point, but recent events may put a damper on that).

You think Magic is your ally... but you merely adopted the Art. He was born in it. Molded by it.
Sometimes, an angel is simply a devil with better intentions.

Damn, I should look in here more often. This sounds interesting! Makes me want to jump on, on Budly for a "Apple-est", "Apple-feast" with tons of apple dishes.

Sylveera : Sun Elven fury packed in an Arcane Archer, not a Drow, promise.
Tetrik : Greed incarnate in a Duergar.
Budly : Has gone to a better place.
Barrililath : Shadowy Drow, probably less Drow than Sylv ever be.
