Heironeans observe Fortnight’s Feast in midsummer, celebrating the victory of the Heironean armies of Aerdy over Nyrondal cavalry in the Battle of a Fortnight’s Length. How do you think this festival is observed in modern Nyrond (if at all), which is strong in the faith of Heironeous but on the losing side of the battle?

I'd suggest your average Nyrondese would ask, "what festival?"

Of course, this depends if Nyrond sees itself as the legitimate successor to Aerdy, in which cases it would celebrate those victories, or as a people who have "regained" their independence from the Malachite Throne. As I recall, the rulers of Nyrond are offshoots of the Great Kingdom's dynasties, not native descendants, and so would incline to keep the traditional festival. On the other hand, if they deemed it necessary to create an identify that was always opposed to Aerdy (much like we are always at war with Eurasia and Eastasia) than the festival would be forgotten, or reworked to emphasize the glorious defense of the homeland.
