While few if any Ferellans believe that there is such thing as a god, some in the remote human village of Askile have come to believe in them after witnessing miracles and inexplicable phenomena. One such phenomenon is he appearance of a lightning formation they dubbed the “antlers of the gods.” The lighning appears in the shape of one of two antlers, arcing up towards the sky.
Every time the lightning appears in this formation, one item from the town will go missing. Sometimes, a intricately carved pot disappears from a craftsman’s basement. Other times, a statue or monument will disappear from a prominent location. Many believe a god is coming and taking the most precious items humanity can make. his is consistent will the town of Askile’s reputation as some of the most skilled craftspeople in the world, regardless of the medium.

This portrait was found on a piece of large paper in the walls of a house in an abandoned human settlement titled Settlement Alpha. It was packed into the walls with other, unreadable pages.

Colorful and ornate masks are worn during the celebration of Demontimes in which people build floats to celebrate the defeat of a demonic lord, Finuput. There are always two floats; one for Finuput and his allies and one for those who opposed him. Every participant wears a homemade mask to hide their identity, and they throw necklaces from the floats to the crowds as they parade through town.
The most generous float wins, and at some point each of the major figures (Sheldon Glass, Kelly Horse, The Mystery, Harold, and Finuput) throw a special necklace down. Whoever catches it becomes that figure the next year. Finuput is the only named figure on his float while all the other figures are on the other float. Each float has masked soldiers to assist them.
