The Sun Never Rises
I made a fire and watching burn
Thought of your future
With one foot in the past now just how long will it last
No no no have you no ambition
My mother and my brothers used to breathe in clean in air
And dreaming I’m a doctor
It’s hard to be a man when there’s a gun in your hand
Oh I feel so…
- Head Over Heels, Tears for Fears
Open Days Are Upon Us!
For several days each year, Menzoberranzan opens up to any and all who wish to visit and join the drow in a celebration of perpetual splendor. Visitors from miles around the famed drow city come to trade, feast, meet with business partners, make new allies, gather information about the state of affairs, and generally take advantage of this rare example of Menzoberranyr hospitality.
The drow welcome the opportunity to demonstrate their might and prowess to all their would be friends and enemies alike. Rarely does the full strength of Lolth’s chosen get to flex its muscles so brazenly for all to see. The streets are full of revelers as well as feats of strength, fantastic spellcraft, and even a few friendly competitions.
The most anticipated competition is the annual cross city race. The Academy of Tier Breche selects six students to compete against six volunteers from among the visitors. The first to reach to top of the tower of Narbondel alive take the prize, which is usually substantial. Incidentally, a non-drow has never won this competition.
