(Quantar Core) After weeks of absolute news blackout regarding the upcoming major Quantar festival, the Tahirs have finally release a schedule. Insiders point to power-struggles between the Tahirs and a strong move to keep several of the ancient festivals traditions more dirtside-focused — a clear shift away from recent years where traditions like “The Blessing of the Shovels” was held concurrently in planetside temples as well as outside Quantar Core Station.
The three-day festival schedule released by the Office of the Third Tahir is as follows:
Day 1 – 115.9.4
- Commencement of the three-day Quantar Faction Mining Mission
- 12 noon UTC — Recital of The Parable of Kardaron (the Reading by Second Tahir Sandokhan Neamru will be available on UUNN)
Day 2 – 115.9.5
- 12:01a – 12 midnight UTC (i.e. all day) Pure Mining Contest — the pilots, Quantar or gefir, who mine-out the most pure asteroids during this 24-hour period will win awards.
Day 3 – 115.9.6
- 19:00 UTC Short Track Race — details here.
- Awards and Closing Ceremonies, hosted by Third Tahir Dr. Silas Tashawar, will follow the race.
