The Spring rains have made the Northern Hemisphere green and verdant once more -- but it's due time for a proper heatwave! Welcome to the First Day of Summer!
Long sunny days, beach parties, picnics, and waterballoon fights are all staples of the hot Summer months, and here in Furcadia it also means it's time to celebrate the annual Festival of the Sun! The Masons and Pixels have been hard at work on the completely overhauled festival Dream, getting everything updated to stunningly beautiful 32-bit.
Like with all festivals, there is much to see and do! Wander the exotic market for a special trinket, riddle with a Sphinx, ride an impressive barge down the river, or explore mysterious ancient catacombs. Don't forget to pay tribute to our Lady M'Rill, Prime of Felines, as well! She may just reward you for your patronage!
And, of course, the arrival of the Festival of the Sun also means that the Lighting of the Fires is not far off. This traditional event is held annually within the Festival grounds and always sees a huge gathering! Felorin and Talzhemir will be on hand to light the fires -- you may even catch a glimpse of M'Rill herself! So be sure to watch for the date announcement!
