Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
As on most holidays, no one labors on New Year, which takes place on the 1st day of Founder’s Month. On New Year people sit huddled over their cups in taverns and inns, drinking through the long night. This somber celebration is punctuated by tales of woe from the drinkers. One drinker cries out a bad thing that happened to him during the last year, then tells everyone present the story. Once he finishes his sad tale, the rest of the drinkers shout out ways the unfortunate event could have been even worse, the stories growing more wild and improbable as the drinkers grow more drunk. Elweirnians believe that by imagining the very, very worst that could have happened, they can make things seem not so bad for the rest of the year.
