Ethengar Specific Events for Newmont (01)

  • 12th Newmont (01) – Ethengar (Hiskmai) – Start of Week long winter festival. This is the week of winter festivities, a break in the hard monotony of winter life and weather. During this time all clans contribute to the tribal festival, organising competitions and games and providing food, beer, spirits, and music. Friendly rivalry encourages extravagance of costume, feats of daring and skill, and more than a few impromptu drinking competitions.
    For those tribes wintering near water sites, ice sports are popular, with prizes offered by the Khan for the most successful or flamboyant competitors.
    Games and competitions may involve other tribes; in these cases one tribe acts as host, providing food and accommodation for the visitors.
    Such an occasion offers the potential for increasing the standing and status of a tribe by providing elaborate and plentiful accommodation to the visitors.
    The Golden Khan holds an open court at Bargha, with invitations extended to all Ethengars. While the festival at Court is a lavish affair, business and political dealings are more obvious here than in local tribal celebrations.
    For shamans, this week is an important time to court and placate the spirits of life and fire. Shamans must ensure these spirits are not neglected during the cold winter months, as failure to encourage life and fire back into the tribe would be disastrous for the year to come.
  • 19th Newmont (01)Ethengar (Hiskmai) – The Day of the Golden Khan – All celebrations reach a climax on this day. It commemorates the success of Moglai Khan in uniting the Ethengars. Bonfires are built, the fattest animals are roasted, and the spirits of past Khans are invited to join the feast in honor of the Golden Khan. At Bargha, envoys present gifts to the Golden Khan, favors are sought, and new deals are sealed.

Darokin Specific Events for Fyrmont (08)

  • 22nd Fymont (08)Ethengar (Tringmai) – The Great Horse Fair (week festivities) – This is the largest annual Horse Fair, usually held near the Court of the Golden Khan. The Great Horse Fair draws clans from all over the Sea of Grass.
    The principle business of the day is horse trading—a chance to purchase renowned breeding stock, to clinch deals for the future, and to sell at a profit.
    Trading in other stock, fabrics, food stuff, luxury goods, weapons, and medicines makes sure that there is plenty to buy, sell, and see. It is at the Horse Fair that marriage contracts are proposed, new tribal members introduced, stories told, news exchanged, and rumours started.
    The Fair is a joyous occasion, during which the routine and mundane matters of life on the steppes are forgotten. Great quantities of food and drink are consumed, steam yurts are filled with chattering, sweaty Ethengars, all eager to swap tales, make bets, and cleanse impurities from their bodies.
    For the shamans and clerics it is a time to hold conferences, to learn from those more experienced, to seek answers to perplexing problems, and to secure a good future for their tribes.
    The Golden Khan is present at the Great Horse Fair. His horses fetch huge prices and bestow great status on the fortunate purchaser. Politics, the strengths and weaknesses of neighbouring lands, the strategy and tactics of successful raiding and war—all are discussed and argued over. Many schemes are hatched at the fair, and sometimes inter-tribal rivalries flare up into open confrontation. Any such fighting is put down by the Keshak, for Moglai Khan knows well the importance of a united people.

Ethengar Specific Events for Sviftmont (10)

  • 6th Sviftmonth (10)Ethengar (Chagai) – New Year – This date is marked with a celebration meal of special breads, consumed with great relish by the Ethengars. It is a quiet affair, the major festivities waiting until all the clans have joined together again for the winter.

The amount returned is carefully compared to the amount the Khan allocated to the clan on the Day of Blessings (see Haimai 15th) and a record is made of all new purchases, acquisitions, and births.
    It is a day of great importance to the clans, as their success (or failure) at increasing their Khan’s wealth directly affects how much the clan is given next spring. The herds are turned out to graze together and individual clans no longer have sole responsibility for the animals that were in their care.
  • 24th Sviftmonth (10)Ethengar (Chagai) – Day of Naming and Welcoming – A day of great celebration and feasting.
    New clothes purchased or made during the summer are brought out, yaks are roasted, and much time is spent preparing a great feast to be eaten in the evening around a great fire. During the festivities, each new child is presented to the Khan, blessed, and given its name.
    Any new marriage contracts are announced, if the Khan gives permission, and the dates are set. Songs are sung of tribal history and stories of great and glorious exploits are recited by the shamans long into the night. As the fires burn low, the tribe settles down for a night under the stars, safe in the knowledge that theirs is indeed a blessed and glorious way of life.

Ethengar Specific Events for Eirmont (11)

  • 1st Eirmont (11)Ethengar (RinPoch) – Cretia’s Day – On this day the Ethengars play tricks on each other. These are mostly harmless, but some of the rabid chaotics who follow the Immortal sometimes go too far, dreaming up pranks that result in real hurt and misery.
  • 15th Eirmont (11)Ethengar (RinPoch) – The Night of Spirits – For the shaman this is the most important and potent night of the year. During this time the boundaries between the World Yurt and the Spirit World fade. It is a night of high ritual and shamanistic expertise. Those shamans with access to the required spells journey to the Spirit World, seeking the aid and advice of the spirits for the year ahead. Some shamans attempt to reach and scale the World Mountain, for this is regarded as the most auspicious time to enter the Spirit World.
    It is also an important night for the rest of the tribe. Songs are sung remembering tribal ancestors, requesting their guidance and aid in the future life of the tribe. An entire feast is set aside for the ancestral spirits and offerings are made to a multitude of animal and plant spirits. Small fires are lit and blessed, bathing the steppes in an eerie flickering light, encouraging the presence of benign spirits and aiding the shamans in their attempts to reach the trance state.
    It is traditional for the tribe to fast during the day and night, a fast that is enthusiastically broken at dawn with a communal meal followed by a day of sporting events and merriment.

Ethengar Specific Events for Kaldmont (12)

  • 1st Kaldmont (12)Ethengar (Komai) – The Golden Khan moves toward Bargha for the winter period.
  • 15th Kaldmont (12)Ethengar (Komai) – Blessing of the Golden’s Khan’s Court – The Golden Khan’s Court at Bargha is formally blessed: All warriors join together in a great show of military strength and expertise. The Golden Khan sets competitions, hunts, and puzzles for the warriors. The winners gain gifts and increase their status in the eyes of the tribe.
    Tactical skills, honour, and accuracy are tested to their limit. While this day has developed into a festival, it owes its origins to the original necessity for the Golden Khan to stand proud and strong at Bargha, defying any Ethengar or Outsider to challenge his strength and prowess as a leader.
    Tribes in the area may join the festivities, entering their own warriors. For those farther afield, tournaments and challenges may be held on a local basis.
  • 27th Kladmont (12)Ethengar (Komai) – The Day of Law – This day is the most holy day for worshipers of Tubak the Lawgiver. The clerics of Tubak recite the Law and a great feast is held. Anyone committing a crime on this day is put to death.

Design Notes

I am moving the festivals to run at the same time the immortals of that season would organise such festivals. Work in progress.
