Description[edit | edit source]
The holiday was held in the form of a series of celebrations that also codified common business practices of Waterdeep, such as a review of the policies of the Guilds of Waterdeep, as well as renewal of guild membership. Businesses also typically stayed open until late and offered promotions to customers during this period.
- Tarsakh 1: Caravance, a commemoration of the first trade caravans to reach Waterdeep;
- Tarsakh 5: Goldenight, a night festival celebrating money and gold;
- Tarsakh 7: Guildsmeet, a gala festival in which guilds announced their new policies;
- Tarsakh 10: Leiruin, celebrating Waukeen's punishment of an attempt at deception by Leira.
History[edit | edit source]
The original festival used to be one day long and focused on celebrating Waterdeep's free trade and commerce. It was gradually expanded to include older festivities, to a point where its name was only maintained by force of habit. In the 14th century DR, the tenday-long festival was already several centuries old.
