|Once a year, troupes of jesters and fools gather and encourage the people of Tamriel to toss aside their notions of status, honor and class in a celebration of absurdity. Performers roam the streets mocking the rich and famous, towns celebrate with a variety of traditional festive pranks, and guests are encouraged to participate in silly games to win joke prizes. Outside the cities of Ebonheart, Vulkhel Guard and Daggerfall, pavilions have been set up to host the festival. Jesters dressed as the three alliance rulers will appear at each location, and offer challenges of foolishness to festival goers.|
