Description

On the day of the first full moon each year, the people of Liyue celebrate Lantern Rite. At nighttime, everyone in Liyue releases Xiao Lanterns and the Mingxiao Lantern into the bright sky. Each Xiao Lantern contains a piece of Plaustrite that makes it float, and people hang wish sticks from them which carry their hearts’ desires in written nor painted form. The lanterns slowly fly away, carrying the hope that the light they emit might guide the soul of Liyue’s faithful protectors home, that they might return and be reunited with their people once more. You and Paimon arrive in Liyue as the festival is in full swing, preparing to enjoy yourselves…
