In the RQG quickstart adventure "The Broken Tower", the Clan Chieftain is said to be "away at a trade-time festival at the Sun Dome Temple, along with many other nobles and landowners..." What time of the year would "Trade-time" be? I've had a quick Google and a search on here and couldn't find any reference. I'd hazard that it would be either late in Earth (as folks trade what they find they've got an excess of at the end of the harvest for what they don't have enough of to get through the Dark and Stormy Nights to come), or at the beginning of Sea (when folks start venturing out again and need to trade for what they find they've run out of over the winter). I know you could run the adventure anytime, and use whatever excuse you like for why the head honcho isn't handling the situation more directly, but the concept of "Trade-time" seems like it might have some legs and "official" existence, so I thought I'd ask if anyone had anything concrete. I'm tending towards something like Earth|Movement since that week has Issaries' Holy day, and Gustbran's.
Here you have the link to a pdf I made featuring a Theyalan Calendar and its main holy days: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bz3yUt8lNxwhcEw4TmJpUzZ0b2c Every line depicts: - Number of the day - Runes of day and week (every page is a season) - Worshipped god (bolded if it's a relevant holy day), name of the celebration, source and page explaining it, and pantheon. Sources are referred so that they are easily consulted: - GtG = Guide to Glorantha - P:GtA = Pavis: Gateway to Adventure - SKoH = Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes - ST = Storm Tribe - TR = Thunder Rebels There is also info from Cult Compendium and King of Sartar, which I don't own. In those cases I used the Glorantha Wikia as a useful resource: http://glorantha.wikia.com/wiki/Glorantha Please tell me if anybody spots mistakes or improvements. - Nel PD: The same pdf translated into Catalan is here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bz3yUt8lNxwhMVItdlRBMjJNa2c/view?usp=sharing
Joyous Bell Festival! On Skaerune', the Festival of Bells is the celebration of a new year and an end to the worst of winter. People of all cultures gift bells to one another and generally make noise to drive away "trolls" and proclaim to the Caretakers that they are here to stay. Even the Rakshasa allow this holiday in their cities though like everything their festival celebrates the Glorious Empire more than anything. So, Joyous Bell Festival to you all.
