All week event: Wednesday, July 10 through Wednesday, July 17
https://www.blkdragon.com/wiki/index.ph ... dar#SummerThis is the traditional date for a major mercantile fair, but to avoid competition many towns now stagger their fairs and place them on different days. The customary taxes on the sale of certain goods are lifted on this day by long-standing tradition. On one of the hottest days of the year, merchants and consumers gather in normally crowded bazaars and boulevards to buy and sell wares. The Merchant Festivals is not only highlighted by the exotic wares for across the world, but the varied entertainers that fill the air with music and laughter as those with and without browse the booths.
This year the Merchants' Festival in Drache will last a whole week! Merchants' Square will be filled with music and dancing. Vendors will offer exotic wares, street foods, and plenty of booze.
Merchants will be able to import certain items tax free for the festival. This year's list of tax free items is: exotic herbs and spices, sugar, perfumes, coffee, art, porcelain, and linen.
Citizens and residents outside of the city can also enjoy the benefits of the festival, with towns hosting different events on different days.
This is meant to be a chance for casual rp in Drache and the various cities and towns in Transdarianian. RP can be self-guided interactions between players and npcs. I (Gudrun) will be gming some posts to add flavor to interactions on July 12 and 13.
If you have any ideas for Merchants' Festival events, post them in #bdi*ops on IRC or #bdi-mods in our Discord server!
