The Bridge Builders (23/06/2015)

Celestial Nights--a timeless tradition born from the legends of the Far East.

A legend of two lovers, Princess Amdina and Prince Yahiko, separated by East and West across the winding great river separating their two feuding nations.

In memory of their tragic end, the people planted a multitude of bamboo stalks along each bank of the river and decorated their leaves with brightly colored strips of paper. The custom grew in popularity, and has come to mark the start of the summer festival all across Vana'diel.

Like lovers whose embrace is only strengthened by distance,

The colored streamers sway and reach out to one another in the bamboo leaves, fluttering and mingling in the early summer breeze.

Our story begins in mid-summer, in Aht Urhgan, a tale of old bonds broken and new bonds built anew.

Read on to learn more of a curious episode from a forgotten alley of Al Zahbi.
