Founder’s Day is probably the name for a lot of different festivals and holidays. But in Lere it celebrates the founding of the Kingdom of Lere.
The celebrations are intense. The primary celebration lasts well into the night, and the full festival is a week long. Among the festivities are every kind of carnival attraction. Every House puts on various displays of acrobatics, magic, and various dramatic performances. Fireworks are lit and set off from the chill waters of Lake Wamor.
The Founder’s Day celebration culminates with a special event. The most powerful mages from Lere fly above the upper limit of the barrier, and in unison focus a single powerful magical spell (usually a Fireball) onto a single point, somewhere into the water (to avoid unnecessary casualties should something go wrong.) When the spell strikes the limit of the barrier, an enormous golden shockwave propagates along the entire surface of the barrier, spreading out over the entire kingdom, reminding all of the protection they share.
