A widely-celebrated holiday of Dwervoth origin, Vyłat Dyvoli (lit. ‘walk of devils’) usually takes place on the 21st day of Fantasmun, traditionally held to be the day on which the intangible spirits hold the greatest sway over the mortal world.
Traditionally in Vyłat Dyvoli, children don costumes made to frighten away spirits and venture into the forest or city, where any number of older members of the community hide toys or food in elaborately-decorated boxes. The children wander the area in search of the boxes, which represent the toll which spirits have paid for trespassing into the mortal world. Depending on the size of the celebration, one or more adults will don a costume made to resemble a Pyraplyvoli (lit. great-grandfather devil), a character of Dwervoth folklore said to be an exceptionally old and stubborn spirit, and wander the wood or city. Children who happen across the Pyraplyvoli accost them for their toll, usually a Dyvolzyme, a special pastry which may be filled with fruit or sweetened meats.
Use in Other Cultures Edit
Among the Olskir, Vyłat Dyvoli is also known as Daavnloope, and the Pyraplyvoli is replaced with Mejster Spooeke (lit. Mr. Ghost, a figure from Olskir folklore held to be the king of the spirits), but is otherwise nearly identical to Dwervoth celebration due to the similarity of Olskir folklore to the Dwervoth, as well as the comparatively recent introduction of the holiday. Many human cultures hold identical celebrations to the Dwervoth, due to the prevalence of Dwervoth cultural adoption among the Human States.
