Day of Knights 2021: Event Overview

This Friday, August 27, 2021, Sideshow and Court of the Dead are thrilled to present Day of Knights. This pop culture holiday honors the Exalted Reaper General Demithyle, a member of the Bone Faction and leader of the Mortis Knights. As with everything in the Underworld, however, there is always more than meets the eye.
