--Festival of Fire Trials--
When the sun beats down hottest on the relentless desert sands, the Thalerith celebrate their conquest of the sands and their journey to Aarandor. They hold duels and physical contests, and the mysterious Flame Seers share wisdom and lore. Fire burns brightly over every door and window to illuminate the city, making it almost unbearably hot.
Before winter can set in and chill the desert air, they host a great hunt in tribute to Rithor. The Thalerith compete to bring back the finest trophies from the wild beasts outside, with feasts held to consume and preserve the meats for the coming winter ahead.
