The Dead Mission

Our primary goal at any game is to have fun.  This is why we play, and why we believe everyone else plays.  There is no room for cheating, no reason for anger, no excuse for anything but true sportsmanship.  In general we have found that most paintball players are friendly, helpful, generous, and good natured – all traits we strive to emulate as a team and as people. 


Paintball is not merely a test of one’s physical skills and endurance, nor just a measure of one’s stealth, accuracy, or strategy.  Paintball is also a test of character.  Standing strong against impossible odds.  Backing up a fellow teammate.  Testing one’s mettle as a player, a team member, and an individual, we play the game as we choose to live our lives.   



We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Alfred Lord Tennyson - "Ulysses"


History of the Dead

Dead by Dawn [DBD] was officially started in September 2000 when a group of friends from Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida decided to attend the Skirmish World Record game in Pennsylvania.   We signed up as team “Dead by Dawn”, taken from Raimi’s “Evil Dead” movie series, and we have since played in other scenario and big games as DBD.

We range in age from around 30 to 40 years old, work at varied professions from programming to stock trading, and many of us have young families.  But we all try to find some time for our shared passion – Paintball! 


Some of us have been playing since the ancient days of the “Splatmaster”, and other’s are relatively new to the sport.   What we share in common is the thrill of the hunt, the rush of the chase, the heart-pounding climax of a good kill.  

And after a long successful day of non-stop hard-driving paintball, you can be assured that we played our best, had great fun, and we will be forever….Dead by Dawn…
