Jewel of Icarus

In the wake of the lock down resulting from the plague, communication between citizens has become difficult. Thus the ingenious jewelry makers of Rilao developed these bracelets in response to the strong fist of the government. These bracelets are both aesthetically pleasing and practical, allowing Riloans to communicate via messenger bird who deliver their messages through quarantine check points.

Rilao Reality TV

The mysterious disappearance of people accused of crimes has stimulated paranoia amongst the lower class. For the elite, however, these people have been repurposed as entertainment, being cast away hidden under he growing macro-structures, and filmed as they battle their way out. The elite enjoy observing the stuggle, but neer acknowledge the inhumanity of the situation.

The Top Three Racing Alpacas of Rilao

Zoos, underfunded, decide to run secret betting rings where modified alpacas are raced on zip lines. The alpacas are also used in the transportation of goods.

Pictured here are the 3 leading zip line, race Alpacas of Rilao. Brainpaca is the finicky-speed demon. 3 Pink is very attuned with his zip line and knows the proper moment when to weave and turn. Marakihau is the crowd favorite, but has lagged behind lately due to a recent snout injury.

Chilabong (Chest Extender)

The chest extender device is designed to attract exotic birds. Naila eggs are laid through the head of the bird, so the goal is to collect the egg for the all-important potion of Dinwa, the essence of the DOL hallucinogenic ceremonies.

Chilabongs are worn by Carnival dancers. Naila birds are attracted to the bright color of the Chilabong. As they are flying downwards, their eggs fall from their heads and the dancers must position their Chilabongs in such a way as to catch the eggs without breaking them. The “harvested” eggs are then delivered to Dinwa distillers.

Racing Alpacas as Mules

While the tradition of Alpaca racing was started for underground betting, it quickly became a new channel for smuggling goods in and out of Rilao. Designer drugs from the island were sewn into the branded racing jerseys that the Alpacas wore and handed off to smugglers who transported them out of the island. These are the racing jerseys and brands of the top 3 racing alpacas of Rilao.

Caged

The lions of Rilao Zoo are fond of the leaves of the magic tree.

After a dinner of steak they are fed a few leaves to help digestion. Mercifully life in a cage is much improved by the hallucinogenic qualities of this valuable plant.

Sacrificing

In the old 1930’s people believed that you should sacrifice a cowceros (cow and rhinoceros). One time people hacked into the Leloratokapas Zoo, the only zoo which has a cowceros, and sacrificed it to stop the plague and take away their ill fate.
