It was early morning at the Melbourne Museum. All was quiet. There was no one about, except for Ben McKenzie, Petra Elliott and Dave Lamb of Museum Comedy, me, a few security personnel, the cleaning crew, some early starters, the admin staff, the cafe staff, a few dozen researchers and… But it was quiet, very quiet.
We had an hour to make magic, or at least enough images for the Museum Comedy publicity. So, a couple of light stands, Nikon flash units, umbrellas and camera and tripod got trekked about to several locations in the museum and an hour later we were done and packing up as the first sight-seers arrived.
Thanks to the staff of the Melbourne Museum for letting us play with the exhibits.
The first Dungeon Crawl for 2012 kicked off with a duck-handled umbrella of evil, a bat and the Valkyrie Courier Service.
Twinkletoes the Elf Lord had been given Brian, the duck-handled umbrella of evil by mistake and he asked three adventurers to return it from whence it came – Mount Target.
Qualdo the obese Eunuch (Sean Fabri) and Gnome Chomsky, the intellectual anarchist gnome with less than no charisma (Nadia Collins) then got into a van driven by Weibke Llarssonssonsson, the Valkyrie courier (Geraldine Quinn) and set off on the quest.
There were magic puzzles that weren’t and a bat, the problem of returning or exchanging Brian without a receipt, an ogre who wanted a degree to hang on the wall and a very obtuse guardian of the Returns counter and…
Guys, I just take the photos, I don’t have a clue what is happening most of the time. All I know is that it had a happy ending when Weibke finally received a petrol voucher so she wasn’t out of pocket on the quest.
If you want to understand it, come along. You will laugh, you will cry but mostly you will laugh and have a great time. And there is a bar at the Bella Union too.
