The Wild Hunt

 

"Join, hide or die.  That's all you can do when the Wild Hunt comes to call." 

--Harry Dresden, Cold Days

 

Thunder rolls.  Or is that hoof-beats in the sky? Above the wailing wind, a hunting horn can be heard, and the baying of cruel hounds.

 

The Wild Hunt roams the land and sea and sky, and most folk cower in their homes, for even the sight of it can bring disaster.

In the Dresden Files book series, the Wild Hunt is when the Fae go hunting in the mortal realm. 

 

When the Hunters sweep through, some individuals are given the option to join the Hunt or to flee as prey. 

 

Members of the Hunt can fly, traverse open water as if it were dry land, and run at freeway speeds. 

 

They are instinctively aware of the locations of the other Hunters.  They wear a shadowy mask that hides who they were before joining the Hunt. 

 

The Wild Hunt can be called up and led by a number of beings of Faerie, including the king of the goblins.

Not that Goblin King.  The lord of the goblins, called the Erlking or Lord Herne.  He is devious, cunning, strong, and swift.  He also is the consummate hunter, selecting his game and then pursuing his quarry with joy and determination.

 

Members of the Wild Hunt will have a similar (if less blood-thirsty) attitude.  We will pursue our respective targets with enthusiasm and dedication, whether a particular 5K or a weight goal or getting our food choices under control. 

 

We will make the most of our brains and our bodies. 

 

We will also consistently let the other members of the team know how we are doing, so that we can help each other to capture success.

 

And in the process we will probably talk a lot about the Dresden Files.  And there will be spoilers, oh yes there will.

Day 1 begins.

 

I have been doing what I can to prepare for the challenge. 

 

In Changes, I think the Erlking says that a hunter always has the needed weapons to hand.  A hunter should be prepared for the hunt.
