What is Summerfest?
You may be wondering what Summerfest is, and its origins. In modern times, Summerfest is the holiday that marks the longest days of summer. Ascended continue to celebrate ancient traditions and have fun, even in the sweltering heat. This of course, helps ease the stress of the near-constant threats against Telara.
Origin of Summerfest
While some of the history is lost to time, many scholars believe that Summerfest dates back to ancient elven rituals involving burning sacrifices inside wicker figures. Of course, most elves would prefer to forget these barbaric references to their past. In fact, such practices are now forbidden by both High Elves and Kelari alike, although sometimes alluded to by disgruntled Dwarves. What remains in modern Telara is a celebration of flames for all Ascended to enjoy.
