2017 Event Season is Underway

Phew! Egils was a busy event! We had feasts (plural!), an inquisition, a sneak-peak at the new Book of Daos, Minion Readings, new minions, ascensions, and lots and lots of Tablero. As your Grand Inquisitor, I wanted to congratulate everyone who finished their ascensions at Egils!

  • Esther presented to the household her beautiful “Daos Travesty” as an Artifact, and was promoted to Disciple.
  • Frank presented to the household his very annoying Cow Bell as an Artifact (and then did a lovely rendition of the SNL “More Cowbell Skit” with Fisher during a talent show), and was promoted to Disciple.
  • Connor and Daria successfully completed their scavenger hunt and were added to the ranks of Minion.
  • Fisher got too old to be a Minion and was promoted to Pilgrim (after drinking from the MinUglyMug)

Congratulations to all of you!

Up next is Stormgods and Game of Thrones, July 21-23 in Vancouver Washington. At that event we will be hosting an event-wide appetizer contest as part of our Feast of Saint Randy on Friday night and Saturday we will be joining in the event-wide Games and Drink station (this Grand Inquisitor really hopes that she does not get as drunk as last year). We will also have ANOTHER minion graduation on Saturday, as Eleanor just became too old to be a Minion. Who let our Minions grown up?!

Welcome Traveler!

House Daos is generally described as a group of people whom like doing things together and are bound by activity, but not by politics, theology or law. We are women and men of characters. Some of us are parents, some of us are couples, all are individuals with a voice… often a vice, or device. Or two.

We write plays, play video games, play RPGs and board/card/dice games, invent games, share ideas, drink (copiously), we create costumes and events, go to conventions, throw (sometimes elaborate) parties, have house meetings, drink more, we time-travel, cook, invent, perform plays, act silly in public and privately, we discuss everything imaginable and pontificate on art, music and movies We’ve been known to ridicule people. We camp outdoors with SCA and by ourselves, we fence, playfight and occasionally ride on each others backs with squeaky weapons. We are comprised of artists, costumers, seamsters and seamstresses, musicians, performers, brewers, artisans, carpenters, painters, designers, programmers, engineers and I think we have an accountant.

We don’t LARP. We will never LARP. LARP is dumb.  Some do, however, drink Mt. Dew and cast Magic Missile into the darkness. Weekly.

We are located in the Pacific Northwest, Mainly in Portland, Oregon, though we have a few Northern members in Seattle, Washington and members down south in Medford, Oregon and LA, California.

Our mission? Some would say it’s to have a good time, and harm none. At least not permanently. Though a few of us have failed in that mission. With the scars to prove it.

Our quest? Some holy grail I imagine. I’ll raise the question at the next meeting.

We’re constantly in the process of updating the web site, some old things might be missing, some new things might be confusing.

Please report bugs in the comments here: BUG REPORTS. Thanks!

2016/17 is the year of Sin!

Congratulations to our newest Prophet, Cardinal Sin! This makes his second time as Prophet (glutton for punishment).

He ran a successful campaign promising us

“More Sin in 2016!”

Who can resist that??

Congratulations to all of our members who have successfully completed their various ceremonies and inquisitions to gain another rank in House Daos! We would not be 21 years and going strong if it wasn’t for all of your hard work, dedication and enthusiasm for our great household!
