Demontimes: human, celebrations

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.

Darnell Asylum: humans, unseen elves, half-elves, elves

The Darnell Asylum has a dark history. When humans first began to interbreed with elves, they were unaccustomed to magical abilities that the half-elf and three quarters elf children sometimes had. They locked them in this asylum to control them. The asylum was overrun by magic spiders from the elven forests, and the elf hybrid children fled into the forest. To this day, the webs in the asylum are too thick to break, and feral elf-hybrids are found roaming the woods, though most of their human blood has been diluted by bandearg or elven blood.
