Heavensturn is a celebration that marks twelve passings of the moon in the night sky, and with them, the vigil of each of the Twelve over the realm. It is on this sacred day that one among the gods wins celestial favor, and whose aspect thus exerts the greatest influence over the fate of Eorzea throughout the coming year. Those initiated into the mysteries of the divine are of the belief that this turning will see Althyk, the Keeper, rise above his deific peers.
Innumerable malms away, in the Far East, folk observe something of a different Heavensturn. There, noble beasts take the place of the Twelve, with the dragon said to be the embodiment of Althyk. This serves to explain the large shipment of helms wrought in the creature’s likeness that has recently arrived at Black Rabbit Traders. Rumor holds that these ornate headpieces are meant as gifts to be bestowed upon those adventurers who lend their kind aid in the Winter’s Knell festival...
With the surveyor of change and space and god of time presiding over Eorzea, what could the coming year possibly hold in store for the realm of men?
