Wake Up Dark One

Wake Up Dark One

by Crystalis DeCavalier

copyright 2009

Take these colors in my soul

Ring them out and lay them down

Place them at your feet and look

What do you see?

Another world inside two places at once

How can this be?

A portal within the gateway of the mind

One side shakes and holds the chaos

Wishing to burst free

To be released and thrust forward

Needing for the world to see

What lives beneath the… Continue

Leather is a material created through the tanning of hides and skins of animals, primarily cattlehide. The tanning process converts the putrescible skin into a durable, long-lasting and versatile natural material for various uses. Together with wood, leather formed the basis of much ancient technology. The leather industry and the fur industry are distinct industries that are differentiated by the importance of their raw materials. In the leather industry the raw materials are by-products of… Continue

As She Slipped Away

She slipped away from me last night. One moment she was there on the table getting her stomach pumped and the next…nothing. I prayed last night. The strange thing was, I wasn’t even really sure whom I was praying to. Everyone…no one, it’s all the same really. I wouldn’t say that I am one who has lost their faith. I suppose one must have faith first to lose it. I had confirmation last night of something that has lingered in my mind for some time… Continue

A question asked because of action taken responses and still the wrong is being found of. Three sides of a coin which will you see

This is my and the responses from the action of banned from sites. People who have answered my asking if they knew of things. And messages back and forth.

Malleus Maleficarum "The Hammer of Witches"

Under Dominican pressure, in 1326, then Pope John XXII responded by making witchcraft an official heresy. Over one hundred years later two well educated Dominican monks by the names of Heinrich Kramer and James Springler wrote a horrindous three part manual called “Malleus Maleficarum (The Hammer of Witches or just Witches Hammer)”.

The manual was based on the passage “thou shalt not suffer a witch to live”(Exodus 22:18). This “book” was on how to identify and legally coerse… Continue

Hymn of Love


Love Hymn from Inanna to Dumuzi
Bridegroom dear to my heart.
Goodly is your beauty honey sweet.
Lion dear to my heart.
Goodly is your beauty honey.
You have captivated me.
Let me stand trembling before you bridegroom.
I would be taken by you.

Once Upon a Time....

Once upon a time there was a hydra and a dragon and a rose. The hydra loved the rose

and wanted it for his own. The dragon too loved the rose but being honorable stepped

away and let the hydra take the rose for his own. The hydra wrapped the rose

in a silver chain and golden ring and kept her thus.

Many years passed and though he thought the hydra loved the rose and treated it well. He found that what he percieved was not true. The hydra did not treat the rose well. So he… Continue

Words thoughts seeing perhaps .....................

By being so we start to understand man and their habits. The ways and reasons. For their reactions and ways of doing things.

Thus applying the perspective theory to our own lives where be why man hunts and kills us why he despises us. We are large and wise. Unknown to him. We are the mystery And that which man doesn’t understand and scares him he destroys that which he wants.

That last statement is very true. For when man wants he destroys to attain it. Many wise and… Continue

Wulf clan Cat clan the two oldest clans other than our self. The old stories state we taught the Wulf to howl and the Cat to purr. Gifts promised to them For their help to us. And Justly so.

Wulf swift, deadly, night hunters who stood over our lairs many a century. Barking as a common dog when danger came. Were taught to howl or sing if you wish to the night sky For things they wish and warning to others. The story is long For Starclaws a She-wulf was the first to sing/howl learn and… Continue

A story told twice then words of thoughts

Here is one story on how a man became one of our clansmen. Taken from her journal when traveling amongst them.

I sat upon a stool at a County Fair. I was posing as a “psychic” reader of cards and crystal balls. My tent was small and I had put little into it to attract attention to myself. Only a small sign stating what I was doing and a Full sized mirror which I had put the words upon the Frame in several languages. “To See your true self Look at yourself” which means little to any… Continue

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
