From GuildWiki

Frequently, ArenaNet modifies the game environment or rules for short periods, in recognition of a real world event (such as a holiday or anniversary).

Types of Events

  • Holiday Events usually consist of changes to the ambient environment of major outposts, as well as unique quests, drops or rewards. Wintersday, Halloween, and the Dragon Festival are good examples of holiday events.
  • Preview Events or Beta Events give players previews of upcoming content or expansions, often allowing exploration of content that has yet to be finished by development. The Factions Preview Event is a good example of this style of event.
  • Weekend Events are often small changes to the rewards for certain actions, such as double Balthazar Faction, or free access to restricted content. ArenaNet often has events of this type, most weekends. Elite Weekend is a good example.

The Festival[1] also known as the SoroSuub Anniversary celebration,[2] was a four-day holiday that was celebrated with a party every year (1,424 standard days) in planet Genarius and certain cities of other planets in the Cularin system.

Contents

Origin

The Festival was initiated when SoroSuub Corporation, the biggest corporate interest in Edic Bar, began the production of the G-59 Cannibalizer, a snub fighter intended to compete with Incom's Z-95 Headhunter. After several problems with the development (including failed attempts at reverse engineering of the Z-95), the production line was completed and the first completed unit was finished and ready for sale.[1]

At that point, the Director of Formal Activities for SoroSuub, Miim Te'Suub, stopped the production and, following orders of higher echelons, gave a short speech to the workers to say that they had the rest of that day as free time. The confused, workaholic Sullustans reacted by partying in neighbor city of Tolea Biqua. They got carried away, spreading their binge to the Toleans and even to other cities, and the party continued for four days before they remembered they had jobs at SoroSuub.[1]

The workers were so satisfied that they decided to repeat yearly the situation, taking four days in remembrance of the first produced Cannibalizer. The Festival, as it would become known, was soon extended to all the cities in Genarius, and even to some cities in neighboring planets.[1]

Director Te'Suub was initially scared, but his bosses were satisfied as he had followed orders. Besides, SoroSuub could use the Festival, and the threat of removing it, to control unsatisfied workers.[1]

Further parties

The Festival of 31 BBY was shaken by different incidents. Firstly, a prototype ship had been stole from SoroSuub facilities by dark Jedi Karae Nalvas or an associate of his. The ship was kept in the hangars of the Conkesta, Nalvas's secret headquarters in a hidden location near the planetary core. Nalvas's enemies infiltrated the Conkesta and escaped in the prototype ship, crash-landing in Tolea Biqua coincidentially near some SoroSuube executives who recognized the ship and offered a reward for it.[3]

A radiation storm then swept over Tolea Biqua and knocked out the city's shields.[2] Former Jedi and scholar Dazen Mok, who witnessed the event, later theorized that the storm could have been caused by the destruction of the Conkesta, which had been built using the dark side of the Force[4] Other damage threatened to sent the city plunging into the core far below. A number of heroes managed to avert this crash.[2].

Finally, Miim Te'Suub of SoroSuub gave his annual speech, but the sudden appearance of a logo of the Metatheran Cartel overimposed made him angry. Te'Suub blamed Thurm Loogg of the Cartel, and the Jedi witnesses had to resolve the dispute.[2]

From Traveller Wiki - Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far future

Annual celebration of establishment of the colony on Rethe. Originally a reaction to the restrictive governmental structure considered necessary for survival on Rethe, the three day holiday period has continued as a carefree celebration where citizens release the tension that has built up over the year. All laws are suspended, with law level becoming 0 during the celebrations. Some abuses have always been persistent, but the population has always resisted any effort to change the conditions of their favorite holiday.

The Travellers' Aid Society has classified Rethe as an Amber Travel Zone during the period of Festival.
