At the spring equinox each year, the city of Arcanum in Carrikos holds a grand festival called the Festival of Spells. It has religious undertones and is conducted by the Church and the Syndicate. However, it is a festival for the people and is put on by the mages of the city. Spell casters of all level, from common hedge wizard to Syndicate members, participate. It is a time for the wizards to show off. Magic shows are put on to entertain children. Apprentices are chosen from the ranks of hopefuls while others graduate and take their leave from their masters. Finally, the Syndicate will unveil a project that will help the city in some way. Such projects unite the Syndicate and represent many weeks or months of work.
