Rains give way to hail and snowstorms as winter finally swallows the kingdoms.  Travellers are warned that these storms may hinder all forms of travel between the kingdoms, and to make allowances for delays that might last days or sometimes even weeks.  When it's not snowing, it's wet and misty; a wetness that seeps through clothing and freezes overnight.  

Scarves, high collars, coats, furs, and sturdy boots are not only in fashion, but necessary for outdoor excursions.  For the home, pull out the heavy blankets, and keep a fire going at all times so you and your family don't freeze to death in your sleep.

Site-Wide Events by Season: WINTER

  1. FESTIVAL OF LIGHT
    • Celebrated during the longest night of the year, which occurs sometime between late December and early January on a slightly different night every year, the Festival of Light is observed Kingdom-wide.
      • Upper-Class & Royalty have begun changing the traditions slightly in the past several decades. They hold a party that lasts all night, ending ostensibly when the yellow star rises, and during this party they hold a great feast, exchange gifts (more white elephant-style, though every visitor brings a gift for the party's host as well as those to whom they are particularly close, and the party's host creates small gift baskets for each visitor), drink and dance until the star-rise.
      • Other Classes have maintained the tradition of sharing a great meal with family and their closest friends as the yellow star sets. This is likely to be a smaller feast, meant to represent their care for those with whom they share it, and meant to conserve resources in case the Fae prevent the yellow star from ever rising again. The latter is an old superstition, however, and few today believe it possible. Gifts are often exchanged between lovers, though some parents with more means will give more practical gifts to their children, as well. These smaller gatherings will include drinking and dancing and games and story-telling before a fire, everyone passing the time and enjoying the company of friends as they await the rising of the yellow star.
      • It is tradition for all classes to hold hands with those loved ones you do not want to lose as the yellow star moves from bellow the horizon to visibility in the morning. This stems from an old superstition about the Fae, and is said to prevent any switching of places with one the Fae might use against you or with one for whom you care deeply and do not want to lose.

  2. WINTER STORMS: End of December thru January
    • If you are a traveler, few airships are willing to brave the winter storms, and those that do risk being blown off course or losing their way in the dense fogs and snowstorms throughout the month. Most airship captains will ground their ships for the duration of the stormy season, or only take short trips during breaks in bad weather.
    • If you are not a traveler, these storms create shortages in supplies, and a demand for firewood and other materials necessary to maintain constant fires within homes. If you are a person of means, this is a simple matter of sending a servant out earlier in the season to stock up on supplies. If you are not a person of means, this can get expensive if you do not make the supplies stretch, or if your way of earning a living dries up.

Site-Wide Events by Season: SPRING

  1. SCATTERED SHOWERS: March through May
    • The inclement weather that swept through the southern kingdoms last Spring is not a yearly affair. Those who are native to Aethaldrin, Lux, Sky City, and the nearby In-Between places will not be surprised by this change from the previous year. They know how the weather patterns work in their areas.

      Still, those who make their livelihoods growing and transporting crops will miss the heavy rains of the last spring season, and are likely to mention it in many a conversational complaint despite their knowledge of the area's weather patterns.

      Others, especially those who travel frequently, will enjoy the relative freedom not permitted the previous season, as there will be very little weather preventing travel.

    • On days it does rain, however, those caught out in it will be drenched in short order. This rain will come on suddenly, and end just as abruptly, like a faucet switched onto high and then quickly off again. Clouds are not always present to warn of these sudden downpours, either, so it is best to remain prepared, if possible.
