Allbirth is a Lamashtan holiday celebrated at the end of Lamashan. This is a relatively unknown holiday primarily due to the fact that it is almost exclusively celebrated by evil monstrous humanoids. The holiday begins with the cult of Lamashtu gathering the pregnant willing and unwilling females and taking them to a temple or alter segregated from the rest of the village. Then the cultists provide a feast for these women of animals that represent various attributes they want Lamashtu to bestow upon their offspring and eat till they are ill. The next phase of the ritual is to sacrifice a fertility symbol to Lamashtu and bathe these women in the blood or ash, depending on the method of sacrifice. After this the cult begins pray to Lamashtu and if the ritual was of sufficient enough quality the women will go into labor regardless of how far along they are, this will cause a number of complications such as premature children and/or birth defects, but if the child is blessed by the goddess they will be born a half-fiend of their race or Lycanthropy of one of her favored animals. These children begin to magically age to adult hood with in moments and are always evil as well as loyal to Lamashtu. This holiday causes a large uptick in the aggressive attacks by monstrous humanoids and various races that follow Lamashtu.
