In the Land of the Golden Sun, the Festival of Lyss was held annually in Vabbi's Garden of Seborhin; a wondrous garden compound reserved only for the royalty, nobility, and persons of high esteem by invitation. Vabbians celebrated Lyss through dancing, drinking, re-enactments, and various other events.

Together, the twins Lyss and Ilya form Lyssa the goddess of beauty, water, and illusion. The festival honors Lyss, an important figure in Vabbian culture as they believe it was she who shaped the world, even molding Vabbians from her own image.

In 1329AE, the Consulate of Vabbian, Istani and Kournan Affairs welcomes all to join in the festivities on the final day of Zephyr in the Crown's Pavilion of Divinity's Reach.

At the end of March, CVIK hosted the infamous Festival of Lyss with a focus on the arts and religion.

We begin April by gathering for our monthly meet and greet in Lion's Arch to discuss Elonian concerns across Tyria. Then the Elonians travel back to the Silverwastes to finish their work of unraveling the mystery of the fire djinn.

On the 9th day of Phoenix, after much preparation, the Elonians returned to the Silverwaste ruins to confront a fire djinn believed to be under a spell of corruption. The group disguised themselves as members of the Order of the Sunspears to minimize any trauma to the creature.

Upon arrival at the ruins, the group entered through the Paragon tile which also led to the djinn's chamber.

The first part of the plan was to create a distraction while the rest of the group (under a mesmer's veil) made their way to the center of the room where the largest braziers, believed by the group to be the djinn's binding spot, were located.

It was here the group split with two people taking a potion that allowed their spirits to travel to the Mists where they encountered Zelhar, the margonite. Armed with swift footing and a magically forged replica of a Spearmarshall's spear, the pair attempted to destroy the demon.

However, a spear to the chest only weakened Zelhar but it was enough to dislodge the demon from the djinn. As the humans returned to the realm of the living, demon and djinn were violently ripped apart. The vulnerable margonite fled leaving the djinn confused and exhausted from the whole ordeal.

For their efforts, the djinn presented them an offer of reward; a choice between a wealth of coin or a wealth of knowledge.

To be continued.

After the recent destruction in the eastern section of Ossan Quarter, the Consulate of Vabbian, Istani and Kournan Affairs (CVIK) with funding from the sales of the Rurikton Roses' Tyrian Calendar, is sponsoring an evening of community involvement.

Join us on 21 Phoenix at 6 bells in the evening.
Together we stand in solidarity against those who try to break Ossan Quarter's spirit!

After Zelhar the margonite was violently ripped from its host, the demon fled further into the ruins. It was feared, the creature would seek out another exit and flee into Tyria.

On the 23rd day of Phoenix, the Consulate sent an expedition into the underground of the Silverwates. After assisting in protecting a skritt scratch, the group was permitted to freely travel the skritt tunnels under the Wastes.

After navigation the tunnels, the group discovered the exterior remains of a mysterious building with resemblance in style to the building above. However, the walls were smooth lacking in any engravings as to note the building’s origin or pressure plates as a means of entrance.

It was theorized the pressure plate might be on the other side of the doorway, and that this was actually an exit.

The next day, 24th of Phoenix, the group returned to the underground building and with the aid of old magic were able to determine the demon was sealed within. Although Zelhar recognizes the limits of its current domain, it will be aware of the group’s presence once they cross the threshold.

It is time to prepare.

Fort Marriner, Lion's Arch (MAP)
Images by Adml Mia Rosethorn


The opening ceremony of the Second Annual Marriner's Festival is presented by the Consulate of Vabbian, Istani and Kournan Affairs (CVIK). This traditional water ceremony draws connections between the port-city of Lion's Arch and the island nation of Istan.

On the forty-third day of Scion, we open the Marriner's Festival by remembering the past of Lion's Arch and those who gave their lives to keep the city free.

The evening starts with a bell ceremony. As the bells ring throughout the harbor welcoming ships back home to port, so too, do we ring the bells to guide spirits home. A prayer will be offered by Ms. Mikaela Botha.

Istani funeral rites will be performed by the Consulate involving the public by inviting them to write the names of lost loved ones onto white paper boats that will be released into the harbor.

After closing remarks the ceremony will conclude with a canon salute from the ships of the Captain's Council's Lower Branch signaling the start of the joyous three-day festival.

Begins at 6 evening bells, on the shore of Sanctum Harbor outside Fort Marriner.
