Yes please, help him, I want to have some fun :D. Even if my character isn't an orlanthi.

I suppose there are a couple of myths that are always represented, or at least explained. If we take a look at Christianity, death and resurecction is always represented at Easter, but at the same time some other myths are told, and those ones are adhoc, depending on the current situation and decided by the priest or minister.

At community level many blessings are renewed. Rain, weather control, martial aids (not so much in Pavis, I suppose it's quite controled by the lunars), it depends on the god.
At personal level, many people will acquire new feats, and it's a good day to attempt a heroquest but of course you must gather some support. That could be an adventure in itself.

That got me thinking... a heroquest to try to recover your lost memory? Mmm, that must be a Lhankor Mhy quest, I suppose... (hint, hint ;-)).
