Culture & Tradition

Entertainment in Aernika

Aernika is a large Country and Entertainment happens in it.


Common Entertainment between Classes

Entertainment is heavily split between the upper and lower classes in Aernika. Typically, upper classes enjoy theaters, betting on tournaments, and wine tasting is the new fad from Bretmyre.

The lower classes prefer taverns, open air theaters, and travelling bards. Starting in Walengen and originating outward, dice games which are frowned upon by the Chantry, but that displeasure is not enforced in towns outside the cities.


Dances

Faloorian dances are free-flowing and elegant in theory if not in practice. They're done in groups with flowing clothes and synchronized moves, with definite similarities to the Waltz style from Bretmyre, if not significantly less rigid and formal. The spectacle of dressing up and performing is a widely loved tradition the country over. 

The lower classes have less practiced, more energized versions of this dance. And given that it is a country and a melting-pot of cultures, the dance often has influences of other races.

The dance can be very easily adapted to Falist religious events such as Imperial Day, with the use of narrators, costumes, and more expressive motions, with the dancers often telling stories of the faith or having the dancers representing each of the Five Atronachs. The story of Ascan and Evaasha told through music and dance is especially popular in theatres in Havenport and Redcrest specifically.


Music

Faloorians also love their music. The music is not as fanciful as Northern Bretmyres orchestras though, and in Falamore, lutes are the favored instruments, often simplistic and only with one or two accompanied instruments. They pride themselves on the skill of a musician rather than the amount of instruments they can harmonize with. A clear, simple sound is seen as more skillful than a cacophony of sound, especially when it comes to travelling bards.
