Every summer, the conclave and the Solstice Bizarre descent upon a single city within the golden realms. By day, merchants, performers and the fashionable wealthy roam the elaborate, ephemeral stalls, looking to sell or buy. By night, market ground erupts into celebration exceeded only by the Grand Revel of the winter festival.
Woven into this tapestry, an elite few gather at the conclave to chart the future of the realms, resolve disputes, negotiate alliances and forge new relationships.
At the center of both conclave and Solstice Bizarre are the Marked. Gifted with a spark of ancient magic, they are stronger, faster, more insightful than their peers, and much sought after as lovers, warriors and leaders. In equal portion they are feared; while the Church of Horn claims that the blood of the gods of Kolvirspire runs in their veins, the dissident Cult of Chaos asserts that they are a corruption best destroyed, for they will ever seek to wield power over their lessers.
