Obsidian: The Age of Judgement - The New Flesh
Day of All Flesh
Zone – Serenity 4th
This is a strange holiday, celebrated differently among the populace of the Zone. Those that serve to further Humanity’s cause use this day as a means to find solace in “doing the right thing”. It is a celebration of life and purity. The darker denizens of the Zone, however, use this day to mark the futility of huamnkind’s struggle and even make a point of consuming a larger amount of souls than normal. In fact, the Day of All Flesh has become something of a day of war between Alters and Kultists. The origin of this day has been lost over time.
Hallowed Flames Day
Zone – June 10th
Wasteland – Day after the first snow each year
This holiday was first implemented 6 years ago when the sky rained holy fire across the Wasteland and even inside the Zone. However, these molten pellets of fire were blue, translucent and immaterial, passing through walls and ground. The fires lasted for half a day, commencing at the very moment a powerful Spiritual Essence daemon was destroyed utterly. These flames have never appeared again and so the populace honors the daemon’s sacrifice either by lighting a torch outside their home (Wasteland) or lighting a blue-colored bulb in their home (Zone). It is thought of as a day of positive thought and energy, making Kultists loath to its presence.
