Slavic Agriculture Spirits

Also known as POLEWIK, POLEVOI

Field spirits.

The POLEVIK (Singular: Poleviki) are strange dwarf-like creatures with odd eyes and long green grassy hair. Their black and white suits are a dead giveaway.

They protect the fields from wandering strangers by playing nasty tricks on them. The POLEVIK also punish lazy field workers. Do not take a nap in a field of corn grass or you may wake up dead.

Handy hint: these managerial spirits are sticklers for punctuality and appear promptly at noon or dusk. So keep an eye on the time and make a sharp exit before they show up.
