Festival of the Blood Moon
Time: 11th of Coldeven
The 11th of Coldeven is The Festival of the Blood Moon. It is a day sacred to worshippers of Nerull, the god of death, darkness and murder. It marks a day when a full moon appeared blood red in the sky in Year 297. Some mages have put it down to simple trickery and illusions, although claims such as these dwindled rapidly after many of these mages disappeared mysteriously. The festivities often extend to other gods of death, including Erythnul, Vecna and Hextor (although these gods would also have their own holy days), but are largely kept underground and while rather gruesome in nature, are generally not worth overseeing by city authorities, similar to The Dark Night. Any citizen happening to stumble across such an event would not be harmed, although might be mentally shocked at the activities that go on in such festivities.
