Quoth the Polevik:

“Ooh… bowl of milk, fresh baked brown bread, it’s going to be a great summer…”

Kith Excerpt:

Once upon a time, in a different life, in a better world, the Polevik were dark Gods of the summer’s bounty. Wheat, rye, barley, and corn, all the gifts of summer, these were the blessings of the lords of summer. But there are far less farms today, and even fewer gods. Today Polevik are the boys of summer, perpetually young, and always male. A far cry from their bloodied godly origins, the modern Polevik still yet maintain their ancient holding and watch over their fields.

They bear some strange relations with both the Inanimae, and the Adhene Plemya (Kith) of Poludnica – who may bear more than passing resemblance. Fae scholars from without the regions will undoubtedly make connections between these two sun-dancing, crop-loving families. The truth of the matter, as are so many concepts in the Dreaming, is tenuous. What can be known about them, is that out of all the Plemya, the Polevik are the happiest with their modern existence.

This happiness is with or without their godhood. They have an infectious love of life that some might misconstrue as naïve. In truth they are just aware of the eternal wheel of the seasons: life and death, summer and winter, reaping and sowing. They have no worries of death, or what comes after. The other Karlik may have fear of the coming winter, but to the Polevik, it will be summer again soon… it will always be summer again.



“But I can see you- Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun.
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong,
After the boys of summer have gone.”
– Don Henley, Boys of Summer
