  In the region of Takka, gift-giving is a tradition that is deeply ingrained in the culture and society of the people. It is a time of year when families and friends come together to celebrate the abundance of the season and to share in the joy and warmth of the holiday season.   The tradition of gift-giving in Takka is marked by a specific time of year, when the food is bountiful and the days are long. However, it is also a time when the creatures of the forest are particularly aggressive, and it is not uncommon for them to attack travelers or intrude upon the homes of the people.   As a sign of good faith and to keep the creatures at bay, the people of Takka display food in a rather unique and elaborate fashion outside their homes. The food is arranged in a specific manner and is accompanied by intricate carvings of (unknown creature)   In order to receive a gift during this time of year, people of Takka must engage in their own intensive labor of woodworking and alchemy months prior to the season.  As they finish hand carving these gifts, they must use a small amount of alchemy know-how to create a substance that reacts with the handmade objects. The more time, effort, and detail one puts into their gift, the alchemical reaction seems to become stronger. It is believed that the act of creating something by hand is a way of showing appreciation and respect to those who are important to us, and it is an integral part of the gift-giving tradition in Takka   The gifts that are given in Takka are highly prized and valued, and they're often treasured for years to come as they are used to ward from dangerous situations. They are a symbol of the love, appreciation and respect that is shared between families and friends and they are an important part of the holiday season in Takka.   Alchemical substance - Created from the sweat from the user!
