Also of note, last year on Lunasa there was a bombing that hit the 4423, Winding Way and Victoria II. For people who like torturing von Karma this is when he got his eyepatch (yar!). Several ships were completely destroyed and many people lost their lives.
The tone all over Reial is one of cautious optimism. There is a remembrance for the fallen, but a year has healed a few wounds.
Feel free to use this post to list what gifts your characters will be sending to others for the holiday!
ETA: We will be celebrating from August 23 - August 29 in game, but Lunasa itself only takes place on August 23rd!
