Forgotten Realms Calender (ZIP 104Kb)
Once every four years, Shieldmeet is added to the Faerûnian calendar as a “leap day” immediately following Midsummer night. Shieldmeet is a day of open council between the people and their rulers. It is a day for making or renewing pacts and for proving oneself in tournaments. Those not seeking advancement treat the elite’s tournaments, duels, and trials of magical prowess as welcome additions to the holiday’s theatrical and musical entertainments.
