The Festival of the Dead is a grand event among the Sarquil in Libaterra. During the festival the bodies of all Sarquil warriors who have died in battle are gathered in a huge pyre. According to Sarquil beliefs this ritual burning allows the dead to enter afterlife where other proud warriors are waiting for them. While the ritual is taking place, the Sarquil drink heavily because they see the event as a cause for celebration: their friends and loved ones have finally found peace in the world beyond. A festival of such scale took place in Vanna after the first phase of the Battle of Vanna.
The Sarquil festival should not be confused with the Sinlarine Day of the Damned festival. Although the two share a festive mood and are connected to the dead, they still differ from one another in many ways.
