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.

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!
In 2013 House Daos turned 20! Next year we will be legal to drink! Woo!
It has been an amazing year filled with fantastic friends and family. In May we celebrated our official 20 Year Reunion Event at Egils where we had over 37 Daos including some of our Founders, long-time Active Members, New Members, Inactive Members who traveled from other states and Former Members who returned to celebrate with us. And for the first time in Daos history we created a Minion Order, and welcomed into the House our member’s children!
This year we have also had a record number of Initiations and welcomed in: Red Molly, Jim, Esther & Frank as well as our new Minions – Eleanor, William, Fisher, Rhys, Oliviah, Trystom, George and Rissa.
Other activities that we have done this year is “The Sound of Daos”, a musical by Irena; a Zealot Race wherein we acted out parts of the Book of Daos; a Midnight Mass featuring a naughty story of Winnie the Pooh and the Viking as well as a segment with the Rev Jimmy Lovejoy; an Inquisition; and a Anarchy Tablero Tournament. Happily the year isn’t over yet and we still have Bunghole, our private household event; Jimtoberfest, a non-costumed camping event and a Daos-wedding between Eden and Michael.
2013 is a great year!
Rest In Peace Brother. We miss you.
