The Revel

Taking place on the first day of Philosopher’s Month, the Revel is the wildest holiday in Elweir. It typically extends over the course of four days. Everyone spends the entire time drunk, sleeping wherever they happen to pass out, and when they wake however many hours later, they immediately set off in search of more drink. The streets are filled with itinerant entertainers who travel to the city from far and wide for Revel, since everyone knows the more drunk a man, the more generous with coin he comes. Wise captains from other kingdoms attempt to schedule their arrival in Elweir either before the Revel (so they don’t waste their time and coin stuck at anchor in Elweir, unable to sell their goods or even offload them because of everyone’s gone “a-reveling” as it’s called in Elweir). The exception to this is captains with cargo of wine, ale, or spirits – they find the best time to arrive is early on the third day of the Revel. It never fails that some inn – or tavernkeeper is forlornly traveling the wharves along the The Serpentine River (Elweir City) and The Worm River (Elweir City) in desperate search of drink to replenish his cellars.
