Day of the Swordsman

A holiday celebrated in the trade town of Halar during the early spring. The holiday is observed to honor a nameless swordsman who sacrificed himself when he single handedly stopped an assault on Fort Halar centuries in the past.

In the years leading up to the destruction of Halar, the youth of the town would be be invited into Fort Halar for an all day training session and other festivities that usually culminated in a tournament between the young contestants. The winner was often rewarded a sword with the crest of the Halar town guard.
