No lawless berserkers rampaged through VikingCon at Western Washington Universtiy campus on Saturday, but there were plenty of Otherworld folk from the fantasy, sci-fi, comic, and movie world.
Photographer, Heidi Pettit, took some snaps with her trusty cell-phone.

Rachel Ashby, aka Fionna of Adventure Time. Knight, Austin Voecks, behind.

Sipping a tankard of water (alas not Viking Ale) I joined the panel, "The Good, the Bad, and the Elvish: Character Archetypes in Fantasy Fiction," sharing the stage with R.E. Dalrymple, Wizard's of the Coast's global brand lead for Kaijudo, and fellow fantasy writer, Danika Dinsmore.

We three talked all things archetype, compared novel-writing and game creation, and a good time was had by all.

Then it was back to the exhibition hall to sign books.

Lana Swanson, aka Equis Zahhak of Homestuck, considers Dragonswood.

Some fine viking rigged it so my signing table faced the Costume Contest stage.

A whole lot of dancing was going on, so I jumped up.

Katie Myette, aka Mickey from The Sorcerer's Apprentice, danging to the DJ's music.

Twas a friendly VikingCon. No pillaging. But there was plenty of plunder, and fun in high commodity!

Until next time, fellow Dreamwalkers, walk well.
