The Night of Holy Lights
The season between Winter and Spring are a delicate time for the residences of Sweetbriar Valley. They are a spiritual folk and during the ‘bridge’ between the end of the snowmelt, believe that the gap between this world and the other world become the thinnest. Spirits cross from the beyond back into the land of flesh, sometimes bringing with it evil ones too looking to lure Caninekind away. These are just folklore, of course… or so the legends long ago say. It is said that during the Night of Holy Lights, no one should be alone, as the evil spirits fear the greater numbers. Sweetbriar light candles and lanterns all over the valley to protect themselves and to guide lost loved ones back towards the light of the Goddess’ warm embrace. There is no place here for them anymore. Due to Sweetbriar’s talent in aging the finest of wines, its no surprise they offer a saucerful of sake at the gravestones of long gone friends and families, alongside mementos and peace offerings. Soft music plays on fiddles and ocarinas, lullabies meant to thwart bad omens away. This festival is also seen as a time for new starts, to reflect upon the past and moving forward in life whether that be a new lover, a new child, a new job or friends... there is much to embrace to avoid sinking into the darkness evil spirits feed upon.
The Forging of Frascuelo
Silversword Town are at heart denizens of the hammer and forge. Their passions are as hot as the hearths themselves that smelt metal into tools and machinery. Frascuelo was a Canina citizen of Silversword the folk admired very much, he was smart and pushed his wits to the limit to get the founders of their town off the ground into the striving force it is today. During the Summer season, Silversword comes together at the local blacksmiths and forges to craft weaponry and tools of amazing proportions to honor his memory and the advancement that has come from Silversword's dedication to the industrial age. Twayblade Mines becomes more than just a job, its a place teaming with life, ores and precious metals begging to be crafted into something.
