Lore 6: Celebration


The only major celebration in the sect is the day the sect leader exterminated all the smaller unorthodox sects in the area and claimed themselves the ruler of the valley and the land that surrounds it. In present time, the celebration takes place on the 12th of December every year. Legend has it that on that very day, the blood belonging to the enemies of the sect painted the snowy mountain red. Not only that, ever since that day, a rare type of flower that is blood red in colour managed to bloom while every other flower died. This day was therefore officially proclaimed as 雪红日. It has a double meaning. It could take on the meaning of its literal translation, Red Snow Day or its darker and more accurate meaning Blood Snow Day as in Chinese, snow and blood have the same pronunciation.



This particular flower is known as the hellebore. Of which many species are known to be poisonous. It is also the symbol of the sect and the sect leader is known to have a small red hellebore tattooed onto their right wrist.

During the celebration, the entire villa is decorated with red chiffon like cloth and one can find the presence of the hellebore in every nook and cranny of the villa. Sect members will choreograph a special formation with the skills they have learned and perform it during the celebration. This is the only time the sect leader will appear publicly to their following, even if only to kickstart the entire event.

Wine never stopped flowing and food is always available. Talented sect members will take turn to showcase their artistic talents and the ones that are exceptional will be rewarded by the division leaders. As the day is special, the villa is only protected by deadly traps. Despite that, highly skilled martial artists who had managed to find the sect by a stroke of luck and who naively tried to invade the sect have always faced death at its face, for the villa is impenetrable.
