While exploring a VR wilderness sanctuary, Rilaons can choose to meet the Shaman, an imaginary character who recounts Rilaon superstitions to the explorer. If you go through during carnival, the Shaman marks the participant with a VR tattoo that lasts beyond the VR experience.

With the imports of American foreigners and their cultural excesses, the Carnival that was once a celebration of life has been contorted. Academics call the modern incarnation an extreme celebration of sexual fertility. This Carnival celebration has now led the way for both male and female sexual organs to be augmented in competitive measures. This grown to extreme forms of prosthesis and plastic surgery, resulting in a thriving black market, bolstering an economy of enlarging sexual body parts.
Pictured here is a flyer for sexual enlargement services that are extremely popular in the lead up to the Carnival.
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.
