In the unassuming village of Avergard, the yearly tradition of the harvest festival is in full swing. The townsfolk are having fun and the atmosphere is merry. Beginning with a simple tradition of a talent show in the Mighty Eagle the crowd favourite, Milton the Magnificent, awed the audience with his tricks of magic and mystery. His newest trick for the year was levitating a hat. During the evening, John Cobb stole a set of keys from the inn and managed to keep the militia from detaining him with some quick thinking and a silver tongue.
The second day was met with a lot of work under the watch of Asa, a seamstress in the village and apparent voice of the people for Avergard. Overseeing the work she offered the new arrivals in town with ale and food in exchange for aiding them in setting up for the night’s festivities, which some of them were more than happy to oblige. During the evening John Cobb befriended Kolya, an aging farmer of Avergard and brewer of the harvest festival’s special ale “Colours of the Harvest.”
