Subj: Banapis!

Hey all!

I just wanted to direct your attention, if you weren't already aware, to Shamata for this year's Banapis celebrations!

They're in full swing already with a Shamatan twist: throwing powders. Shamatans love to celebrate Banapis with a flurry of color, and you can participate too! In Shamata, you'll find jars of powdered dyes for sale. You can take them and MIX them with the holy sands at the newly revealed Shrine in the center of the city to create pinches of throwing powders that you, well, throw at people! It'll make life more colorful for everyone passing by!

If you decide, though, that you wish to look a little more respectable, find some water and SCRUB ME to remove the powder.

Also, be sure to visit the first player-run Banapis shops in the Fairgrounds in Shamata!
