Ebon Gate Festival 2005

"Ghosts?  Ha ha, we're not ghosts!  We know...have colds."
(and just a pinch more creepy)

Ghosts and haunts!The Pale Lady, the Thin Woman, the Guardian of Souls, the Keeper of the Ebon Gate, the Keeper of the Golden Keys....Lorminstra is known by many names. And the time draws nigh to honor her with feasting, shopping, and ghostly fun as all of Elanthia turns out to kick off one of the biggest festivals of the year!

Her visage is unforgettable. She is a fixture of Elanthian society. It is Lorminstra who binds our souls to this realm when we have fallen and it is through Lorminstra's grace that we walk again with the living. Every year, just before the beginning of winter, Lorminstra opens the Ebon Gate so that the departed souls can once again walk Elanthia. This night is preceded by a week of festivities in honor of Lorminstra and in celebration of the chance to walk with the spirits of the beloved again. This weeklong celebration culminates in the Eve of the Reunion.

Dancing and revelry!The Eve of the Reunion represents a rich blend of traditions from across Elanthia and is for both the living and the spirits of the dead. The spirits of the beloved dead are freed to return to their homes for a short time to visit with their friends and families. Like any visitor, the spirits are welcomed with food, drink, stories, memories and good will.

Lively family reunions, loving visits to graveyards, colorful costumes, preparations of special foods and offerings laid out for Lorminstra and the returning souls mark this holiday.

This year, the carnival will feature all the games, merchants, fun, food and festivities that one would expect from a grand celebration in honor of Lorminstra!

The FESTIVAL command will have all sorts of information on raffles, contests and events. Be sure to check it out throughout the week!
