The Divinity Plays
In Skuld, the Mulhorandi celebrate their gods, their history, and their culture on midsummer’s day each year. The daylong celebration features church-organized plays that highlight the great events of the past. Each play begins at sunrise and is repeated over and over until the final performance at sunset.
Local bards and actors portray the gods respectfully, though their human qualities are highlighted. Horus-Re’s peers often scoff at his rigid approach to life. The shortsighted plans of hot-headed Set always fail, yet somehow these failures end up helping Horus-Re. The Red Wizards are portrayed as bumbling brats, much to the amusement of the crowds. In 1374 DR, a new work was added to the Divinity Plays. “The Taking of Unther” is a reenactment of the death of Gilgeam
