Thrice The Brinded Cat
This festival is universally celebrated throughout the lands of Oerth and is traditionally held during the season of Reapingday, although the exact dates vary across regions. The festival is often one that gives recognition to area farmers and involves wholesale consumption of large quantities of foodstuffs and drink. Ale is a staple of Harvest Festivals everywhere. In the Sasserine peninsula, there is a continual growing season and constant harvests, but you can not meet a Sasserinian who doesn’t like a good party, so the people of this area celebrate the Festival too. The Sasserine Harvest Festival begins late in the Season, on Reapingday 25. In Cauldron, the Temple of Lordly Might generally starts the week off with their annual Elparg, or wrestling competition. The winner of the Elparg is given a champion’s belt, a large amount of coin, and is whisked around the city on the backs of party goers and given ale until the poor slob passes out.
