DMP 2K18: Valhalla!

“Lo there do I see my father; Lo there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers; Lo there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. Lo, they do call me, they bid me take my place among them, in the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live forever.”

The veil between the world of the living and the lands of the dead thins once more. But this night, the path opens to torch fires and laughter, and mighty feats in a great feast hall full of the victorious dead. Lo, the gates to Valhalla have opened, and bid you welcome!

Within these halls, have no fear, these Norse warriors of yore are ruled over by Father Odin, who drinks the finest mead as his warriors regale each other with stories of great battles and brave acts. But beware, while the fires of Valhalla are warm and welcoming, there are terrors outside those great doors. The inglorious dead of Hela prowl for the unwary. The beast Grendel rages at the noise of laughter, and hungers for live flesh. And other things, that have found their way from distant graves on this night when the veil between worlds fades…

What are the Dark Ones doing here? We don’t know, but it’s probably Loki’s fault.

For those of you who are new to the whole “how do I get a copy of my pics from the party?” thing, here’s how it works: If you got to this page via Facebook, please message me from there, tell me which photo/s you’d like, be certain to include your preferred email address, and I will dropbox the images for you.

If you got here from my business card, use the email address on the card. Or, if you’d like to experiment, you could send smoke signals, or a Raven with the info…But it’s much more likely to get a response using either one of the first two methods… Just sayin’.

The Dark Ones: DMP 2K17 – Night of the Walking Dead Man’s Party

The Dark Ones: DMP 2K17 – Night of the Walking Dead Man’s Party  (Link to Flickr)

Where did all these zombies come from? Was it the recent near-miss of Comet Nibiru? Was there a secret toxic spill, or a virus covered up by the government? Perhaps a descendant of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau has discovered her legacy? They’ve been saying “Winter is coming” for awhile now… Or maybe it’s really just as simple as accidental Worcestershire sauce in the embalming fluid (not pinkeye).

Whatever the reason for the plague of undead, they’re coming to get you, Barbara. What are you going to do when things get bitey? and don’t forget to Double-Tap! Dress up as your favorite zombie or zombie killer, and come ready to drink, dance, dodge, and dine! Donations are always welcome, and we invite you to bring a dish to share, for as we all know, the hunger of the undead is never-ending.

Costume ideas are easy — Undead, recently dead, survivors [I’m not dead yet!], classic zombie (walker, biter, infected, etc), white walker, wight, voodoo practitioner, bio hazard/radiation bunnysuit, Walking Dead character, character from any Romero-era zombie flick, Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, Warm Bodies, 28 Days, World War Z, I Zombie, the list goes on and on. Whatever you choose, you’ve probably “got red on you”.

The Dark Ones August Party 2017: Island of Mystery – Party Pics

My images from The Dark Ones August Party 2017: Island of Mystery

Greetings, travelers, to this “Island of Mystery”! Many of you have passed through the (April Party) portal at Dachaigh, but others washed ashore, shipwrecked and stranded. We bid you, explore the island and learn its secrets.
You arrived at a strange tropical island where rumors abound of a deranged scientist and threatening beastfolk. Be on your guard with the natives and their peculiar island concoctions at the bar pavilion. Enjoy a cooling dip in the lagoon, listen to stories of foreign deities or explore the compound said to be the hub of island activity. Try your luck at surviving the delicacies laid out in the laboratory for your feasting pleasures. Beyond the lab you will find a place where you can join your fellow arrivals writhing to the beat of the music though the night.

I feel it necessary to inform you that as I was uploading these images to Flickr, and creating this post…my Random Music player was playing “We Are the Champions”…No, I am Not joking…
