everyone attending this ball must wear some sort of mask to cover their face,
and dress to impress.

steps. Come join the fun!

are those who have passed on, who will not rise again to fight with us or feast
in Valhalla: our friends and family who have passed from this world.

If you wish to honor one of your own, or someone for whom you had a great
admiration, or just as a sign of respect to those who have lost, join us at
Pahmoten camp where we will start our procession. As we pass throughout the

stand at your camp’s entrance, and let us pass in silence. We heartily
encourage bringing banners and other such relics into the march.
