Hello!

We have some updates and clarifications regarding the next event, which will be May 3-5 (Event 7).

* In game, Event 7 will be taking place within days of Event 6 regardless of the out-of-game time that has passed.
* Boons given at Event 6 will last through Event 7.
* If you did not have your "Remembrance" triggered, please do not read it. If you still had the "Remembrance" trait at the end of the event, then you will start next event with it.

Some notes on the roleplay day:

* The roleplay day will occur a day or two following the Saturday of the last event.
* Staff will be present at the roleplay day to play various characters, but will not be running any plot.

Thank you,
- Shadowvale Staff

Lost in the Mists

A thick wave of mist rolled out from some point within the Shadowvale forest, enveloping those within. Since then, no one has exited the Shadowvale, and no one outside has been able to make contact with anyone who was inside. Any player who was not present at the event on Sunday can choose to have their character have already been in the Shadowvale when this happened, or, upon entering the Shadowvale at some point between events, also finds themselves lost in the mists and unable to leave. We will assume either your character was unaware of the status of the mists when they entered... or heard about it and decided entering was worth the risk.

Shadowvale Event 5: A Teaser

"While life in the Crown Expedition is never boring, it has been quiet in the last week or so. The seemingly constant skirls of mist that plagued the expedition and the forest over the summer seem to have disappeared. Even the mistwraiths have been strangely absent.

Most people have taken this as an opportunity to move ahead with plans. The Sages Guild is preparing for another round of castle exploration expeditions and the Wardens are preparing to finally replace the broken wardstone.

Some people have taken the lull in activity as an omen.

Either way, there seems to be a sense of anticipation in the air as people go about their daily lives. While that expectancy could simply be the heat of the summer drifting into the cool winds of autumn, it could just as easily be the calm before the storm."

See you this weekend!

Flowers, Fruits, and Fish Wine at Mid-spring

“Greening Day, Brenland and Devon’s mid-spring festival, is a joyous occasion, celebrated with the first fruits and flowers of the season. It is a day for games and merriment as the celebrants welcome the spring. This day is associated with the goddess Fiachra.”

“In Devon, mid-spring day is also the celebration of the Festival of Life, Serona’s holy day. On this day, the Devonish people celebrate the renewal of the cycle of life by adorning their homes and themselves with the first flowers of the season. The overlap of the two mid-spring celebrations seems to be a cause for contention between the faithful of the two churches, although the exact argument remains unclear.”

“On the Day of the Warrior, horns are heard echoing in the forests of Svordland as the first hunts of the season are called and battles are rejoined after the long winter. This day is associated with the warrior goddess Veidra and is celebrated, like most Svordish festivals, with fighting and enthusiastic drinking, in particular Svordland’s famous (or infamous) fish wine.”

“The Day of Blossoms is the other holy day celebrated by the Forestborn who dwell in the Old Forests. As the name implies, it involves the flora of the season, particularly the fruits and flowers which grow in the early spring.”


Excerpts from A Treatise on the Peoples of the Present Age

Written by the hand of Vera Torrel, Master Sage of History and Culture

The Saturday of the April event will be “mid-spring day” on which the holy days of Greening Day, the Festival of Life, the Day of the Warrior, and the Day of Blossoms will be celebrated. Further details are available in the appropriate culture packets. Otherwise, players are encouraged to discover more in game. Players are welcome and encouraged to prepare their own celebrations. Additionally, we have a few plans in store!
