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.
