Imldar celebrated the Entweiss festival commemorating the defeat of the cultists some 20 years ago.
In the axe throwing competition, Hathor the cleric took one throw and struck the bulls-eye. Thom the Wizard attempted to match the feat, but, being a wizard, nearly embedded the axe in his own feet. Renel Redal, the leader of the lumberjacks, stepped up, believing that he could easily have a better throw than Hathor, but it was not to be, and Hathor’s throw was the best of the competition winning him 20 gold pieces.
Next was a fire building competition. Several townspeople participated and were struggle to start a fire, when Keldan Enzule the ranger strode forth from the crowd. He bent down and nearly instantly had a fire started, gaining him victory.
The next competition was an obstacle course, consisting of climbing, balancing, jumping, and lifting. Norfire Wyvernjack of the town guard started off with an impressive run, including a massive leap and quick scurry through the net-tunnel. Hathor was not able to match the run, being struck by a swinging beam. Norfire was still in first place, when the final contestant, Niko Acorntop started his run. He faltered in the jumping section, just barely making it across. He made up time throughout the rest of the course, however, in the end, it wasn’t enough. Niko just barely failed to meet Norfire’s time. Norfire was awarded the 20 gold piece prize.
The final competition of the day was to collect the finest specimen of the Entweiss plant from the nearby forest. Hathor, Norfire and Thom were assigned to same group. The ventured far from town and found a crop of Entweiss. Just then, Norfire spotted a goblin in a nearby tree. Additional goblins appeared from behind other trees, and a skirmish ensued. The Imldarans were victorious. They gathered Entweiss specimens and returned to town.
Conor Treelane, Aden, and Cogturn were judging the plants competitors brought back. Thom’s plant was judged the best retrieve thus far. Just then, the final group, consisting of Icgar Tenson and his cronies returned. Icgar’s plant was judged better than Thom’s and Icgar was declared the winner. He would be crowned King of the Festival and would get to dance with the mayor’s daughter Kiala.
At nightfall, there was a solemn ceremony honoring the townsfolk that had died during the attack.
Afterward there was a feast. Icgar was crowned King of the Festival. After receiving his crown, Icgar turned, arms raised, to the crowd to receive their praise. Thom took this moment to use a cantrip, causing Icgar’s pants to fall about his ankles. Icgar grew upset and stormed away in a huff.
During the feast, Tarn Bufflekill, growing very loud and drunk declared he could drink anyone under the table. Norfire could not let this challenge go unmet, and so he entered into a contest with the barbarian. Both men went many rounds deep, but in the end Tarn stood victorious. He slapped Nor on the back, and congratulated him on doing so well. The feast continued into the night.

A merchant, Carden, came barreling into town from the west. He had been attacked by brigands and barely made it to town. The Company of the Broken Mug (Tarn, Niko, Fiola Nightwing and Enel Falhoff) sprang into action and headed west to confront the brigands. Carden put out word that he would be hiring guards to escort him east to Aberconn.
