A fair or festival held for the purpose of commerce and social gathering. Some are limited to given trades – the Hoss-Meet in the Blackspring Community each summer, or the various Tinker meets that happen where several traditional routes intersect – but most meets snowball in size, attracting all manner of commerce and dealings. A good example is the Wet River Meet, held in the spring in the Dust Field Polities. Besides the trading of young animals and early crops for winter-worked craftgoods, it’s also become a recruiting point for the mercenary companies endemic to the region, and a site for saber-rattling diplomacy between the Dust Lords. Associated with the martial nature, a week-long tournament of violent sports and amusements has become a highlight of the event.
