  2. A Call to the Emberweave Heed my words! For little more than a decade, the Emberweave Circus brought laughter and joy to all who ventured to our tent. We were developing into a family, spreading cheer to not just our audience, but to each other. For me, it was the first time people en masse came to hear me play, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity given to me. Because of the Emberweave, the name Oro Oro began to hold some weight, and people began to request me to perform for them. But alas, things do not always last forever, and just like how seasons end, so did the Emberweave. Our tents lie empty, collecting dust. Our performers have scattered with the wind, adapting to wherever they have chosen to live. Our loyal audience has dispersed, some cry that we have disappeared and others have forgotten us. Have we really lost our passion for performing? Was it not this desire to entertain, to bring smiles to the masses, that had kept us going? Do we really wish to say this is the end of the Emberweave? I say no, the Emberweave is not finished. The seasons end, but they return. The beautiful leaves of a sakura tree will wilt after its season is over, but the buds will regrow anew! We too, can also regrow. Embers die out when there is nothing to fan the flame, but when the embers have fuel, they become a bright fire which all cannot help but look at! To all those of the Emberweave, wherever you are, I call upon you! Let us come back together and once more do what we set out to do! Let us create the best damn circus this world has ever seen. Let not the silence which has kept us separate for so long fester. To all those out there, I, Oro Oro, am calling upon you to find me. Seek me out, so that we may once again rebuild our circus. And to those outside the Emberweave, if you wish to join us, seek me out as well. This is an open invite for all who wish to join our band, you are wanted as well. There is room for our family to grow and grow it shall! I am located within Sakuragakure, the village within the Koyo-Kuni Shogunate, located in the heart of the Enchanted Forest. I await your call, those old and new. Oro Oro
  3. -◈-◈-◈- The sounds of a bell rung throughout the quaint little Castle Town known as Babblebrook. Within the main square of the town was the King of the Musin himself, Patches, bell in hand as he stood before the statue of Musin the Brave. The Mouse Monarch took in a breath and bellowed out. "Friends! Countrymice! Gather round, I have some great news tae tell ye! Today marks the start of Babblebrook's first Sweetberry Festival! Now I'm sure some of ye have noticed the lack of sunlight and may be feelin' rather down because of it, but we cannae let that get to us.

There will be fun, food and so much more, so please come and join in and help set up the festivities!" -◈-◈-◈-

  7. A humble invitation is hung on noticeboards around settlements in the Enchanted Forest and Druidic Circles. Come join the Underlight Grotto as the final of the Fae Moons pass, and we welcome the arrival of the next lunar year! Named for the first full moon during spring's first emergence from winter, or the Season of Birth, the annual festival indulges in a time of music, dancing, and craftsmanship with the lauded Kuila Crystals of the realm.

  15. "Deep in that realm, the Prince does slumber With royal mane of leaf and umber. When the days turn long, the sun's veil of fire awakens summertime from the Lion's choir." Excerpt from the Faerie Tale of Majira, the Midsummer Prince _______________________________________ ________________________ The Sixth Moon of the Lunar Calendar of Faeries is known as the Lion Moon, named for the likeness of the druidic fable of Majira, a great lion thought to guard the Court of the Fae Queen. Majira slumbers most of the year at the entrance to the Verdant Glade, where he rests after his yearly roar that brings the crescendo of summer to the realm. He is thought to be the father of the PrideMother fae spirits, roaming hunters of mischievous faeries and trespassing spirits of draoi, and a patron of wild and domesticated feline companions to descendants alike. With Majira's watchful eyes holding the light of dusk and dawn, it is storied that witnessing reflective eyes of cats big and small is a sure sign that there are foul magics or dark spirits afoot. When the Stormtreader stags cascade their cacophony of thunder and rain during the Fifth moon of the calendar, Majira will awaken and loft his head high. His roar shakes the realms of the Forest and Descendants, rich ribbons of summertime season weaving nature's crescendo into the land and sky. Exhausted, the Great Lion shakes his mane, billowing sweltering breeze to shoo away summer storms that have overstayed their welcome. The oceans begin to stir with life, and the world bears summer fruit of sweet nourishment. Then, the Midsummer Prince returns to rest, so that he might regain his spirit to bring the next year's summer. The Pridemother's Chant, Song of the Midsummer Dance Lye orrarae, Maln! (We hunt, Father!) Lye orrarae karinte, Maln! (We are going hunting, Father!) Il'Kaean narnae, larionn'an, lye orrarae karinte! (Come with us, sisters, we are going hunting!) Lye! Uhierae, ehierae! Lye! Uhierae, ehierae! (The people!) (We seek, we find!) Maruriar, Maln! (Roar, Father!) Lye! Haelun, kaean annil! Lye! Haelun, myumier ito! (The people!) (Mother, guide us! Mother, carry us (to it)!) Ito orrarae! (Here, we hunt!) Oh, draoi uhierae! (Oh, we hunt evil!) A painting of Mother Circle druids partaking in the Midsummer Dance In the Mother Circle, a great celebration is held in honor of this story during the phases of the Lion Moon. Known as the Midsummer Dance, performers travel dressed as Majira and his pride of daughters to spread the joys and beliefs of summertime according to druidic values. The chiefest display involves firedancing, a great demonstration of the story of Majira in the form of a traveling performance and feast. Adorned in bright summer colors and masks of the Midsummer Prince and his hunting pride of daughters, the druids of the circle travel the world to instill strength and faith into those that aim to preserve nature. Summer fruits and laurels are few of many gifts brought to a communal feast, while stories of great accomplishments for the preservation of the balance are shared. While Summer is indeed a season of vitality and strength, it is also a season where the weak perish. When the Mother Circle celebrates the Midsummer Dance, they are praying for the wisdom and strength of the hardy spirits of summer. Wise druids know that no season truly holds an era of quiet when it comes to the protection of the balance, and the summer heat often proves harshest to many. Celebrating the Midsummer Dance and feast forges bonds that many wish to maintain in solidarity of the hard work yet to come.
  16. "The Stag is blessed with a crown of forked lightning. The Caribou's hooves roar over the land like thunder. The Elk's voice the screaming wind of the tempest. The Storm Moon has risen above murky summer skies!" Excerpt from the Legend of the StormTreader, Guardian of the Storm Moon __________________________________________ ________________________________________ A painting of the mythical StormTreader Faerie When the final lunar phase of the spring months has passed, the kin of the Mother Circle know that the harsher times of the lunar calendar is upon them. The clouds churn into great veils of shadow and storm, washing the land with a cleansing rain. When the sky illuminates with the crash of thunder, it is said that the mythical StormTreader stags are clashing their antlers together. Rain cascades over the earth like a tide to cleanse the remnants of the old and warn of the scorching summer months to come, and lightning strikes the land to smite wayward, trespassing spirits of draoi and evil spirits. To honor the story of this fable, the Mother Circle gathers for a grand hunt and the creation of the Lunar Year's Tempest Crown. The tradition begins with two hunting parties representing the Wind and Rain of a summer storm. Venturing into the wilds, the hunters harvest a deer, elk, or caribou to obtain the antlers required for the creation of the Tempest Crown. Then, a grand reenactment of the clashing of horns is held between two chosen warriors of each hunting party. Using only the horned helms they have created, they endure combat during the first summer storm until one of the crowns break. The remaining artifact is exalted as the year's Tempest Crown, a symbol of the Circle's resilience during real and spiritual storms. ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________ A sketch of a druid having won the Tempest Crown "When lightning strikes, kin beware; For the draoi and slothful druid Are one in the same in the eye of the storm." The faerie stags themselves are believed by the Mother Circle to be pure faerie spirits of justice, and enactors of Cerunnos' will. While not associated with the Pantheon of the Wild Hunt, they are considered stalwart protectors of the Court of the Fae Queen and help ensure that malevolent faeries that cross into the mortal realm are kept in line, never overindulging in their unknowable mischief and tricks on descendants. To witness the passing of a white stag is to see a StormTreader in the flesh, an incredibly rare sight and an omen of nearby danger. The Mother Circle considers these faeries to be the first children of Ameathon, and will often keep antlers from hunts and present them to the most honorable and tested warriors of the Grove to symbolize their dedication to the glades of Cerridwen. ________________________________________ __________________________________________

  25. [!] Artist’s depiction of the grand feast during the Feast of the Wolf Feast of the Serpent The Feast of the Serpent is a tradition held every 3 years ((a month in real time)) celebrated with drinking, feasting, and a great hunt to remember the founding of Blazengard and the Wandering Flames. The great hunt is an event which begins the feast. Affiliates can participate in the hunting of large beasts in groups up to two. Those who bring back a beast will be rewarded, but the one who brings the largest beast will get bragging rights as “Lord of the Hunt” or “Lords of the Hunt” during the festivities. The beasts will then be taken to the chef and prepared for a grand feast which takes place soon after. Other games such as archery, apple dunking, pumpkin carving, and the hay maze. To end the day we have our Krugsmas outfit competition, which is judged by the mayor, sovereign and a mystery judge. The competition will be judged on style, effort, and overall WoW factor.
