Adulthood

When a child turns 18 the family performs an adulthood ceremony to introduce them to the world. As with many Su'ndari traditions; the more extravagent the party the higher the perceived status of the youth.

The adulthood ceremony is a relatively simple thing. The family host a feast and party during which the patriarch and matriarch will introduce the child to the guests as an adult instead of as a child.

Later in the party his/her family will present the youth with his/her first true possessions - generally the tools for their chosen trade - and the youth makes a formal speech about his hopes and dreams for the future.
