  ok, so I either take the SCA too seriously or you really aren't supposed to
  eat pears before bedtime. So... no shit... there I was.....

   All of Northkeep were in what I can only presume was court. There weren't
  any thrones. We were all waiting. A harold paraded in these four beings.
  They were spindly and had long brown robes on. They didn't have a mouth or
  noses. They only had eyes. They were the "powers that be" No one was really
  afraid of them or anything. They slowly walked thru the crowd. Morgan was
  next to me on one side and Ciana Mcknochard on the other. The being reached
  out and touched Morgan and he disappeared in an instant. Carla Screamed at
  them for making Morgan disappear, then they went to Angus. "Damn it! He just
  got back!" Poof, they touched him and he was gone. Carla was next. The
  populace was composed of several people from Ansteorra just like usual. More
  than half of them were sent "away" by the powers that be. When they were
  done they stood at the front and the herald stood before them and raised his
  hands and shouted "Let the games begin!"

    The beings folded in on themselves and disappeared. The ground began to
  rumble and suddenly a vast forest was raised before us. We all stood up and
  started into the forest. The object of the game was to find your own barony,
  shire, etc. In the distance you could hear members shouting their member
  name. "Northkeep!" "Namron!" The first group to find all of their members
  wins the game.

  The forest was like any other enchanted forest I suppose. The trees were so
  large that along the way there were some trees that had been turned into
  merchant booths. The ground of the forest, however, was cobblestone. In the
  merchant area, you could buy anything you needed but it would cost you a
  site token from another event that you had been to. Members had to fight
  their way past monsters, answer riddles, and weave thru mazes.

  I happened upon a house that was your basic old tree. It had lots of rooms.
  On the wall of the house there was a huge map of the entire forest. Great!
  Well… not so great. It didn't have the "You are here" section. Drat! I did
  find bottles of potions and spells and books and pretty much anything you
  would want to find. That is until a female Ogre popped out of the wall to
  claim what was rightfully hers.

  I found Elodie in a cell. I found Ciana trying to kill a monster. I helped
  her kill the monster and we freed Elodie. Jeffery came out of no where
  wielding a huge sword and singing about honor and glory. We slowly started
  to add to our group. Wolfstar had the biggest issue. They were howling
  instead of shouting "Wolfstar!" So no one could tell if it was some big
  hairy monster or if it was a clan member. We made our way through the forest
  killing this and that and talking about these tiny little creatures that
  seemed oblivious to our being there.

  It was at this point that I was jarred out of sleep by some moron outside
  with a leaf blower! Damn it! I want to see how it ends! This was one of the
  most vivid dreams I've ever had. Could have rolled credits at the end!
