Dawn's Purple Legion


Sad news for 'Doors' fans...

Reminds me of an early NPC I created for my AD&D game named 'Dawn'. She lead a group of mercenaries called the "Purple Legion".

Of course, an almost direct rip from Morrison's 'Celebration of the Lizard'...I just substituted 'Dawn' for 'Night'.
children of night
who among you will run with the hunt?
now night arrives with her purple legion
Retire now to your tents and to your dreams
Tomorrow we enter the town of my birth
I want to be ready'
The Doors were the first band I really became attached to. My older brother had most of the vinyl albums, so I had them dubbed onto tape. That was all I really listened through jr high and into high school when most of my classmates had never even heard of the Doors. They were too busy wearing Michael Jackson zipper jackets and gloves.

Alas - yet another reminder that life is only temporary and all good things must come to an end.
