Baroness' Inspirational Tourney

December 01, 2012
Lions Gate

Vancouver, BC

Autocrat: Morweena device3759OP

She who inspires... Baroness' Inspiraitonal Tourney

While the Kings, Princes and Barons lead a group to war it is the job of the Queen, Princess and Baroness to inspire great loyalty, to inspire a person to become a warrior and place themselves between home and battle.

It is She Who Inspires that leads the heart of the Barony.
Lions Gate has had memorable ladies in the Baroness's seat, Amanda, Aurora, Caitrin and Margaret, all strong noble women that encourage and inspire.
Join us on Dec 1 at the Port Kells Community Hall to salute the Baronesses  of Lions Gate, past and present, and revel in our memories of how they have inspired us.
So we have something for everyone at this event
Heavy Fighters - there will be the traditional unbelted prize tourney, challenge a knight and show your Baroness (and those past) what you are made of
Rapier Fighters - I am not sure what Captain Matt has planned but there is a chance to win impress with your skills (and snappy style) in the main tourney or for those new to the art of rapier Gerhards Ripose
Artisans and Scientists  - Did you create something inspired by a Baroness past or present? Did you try your hand at a new skill because one of the Baroness's of Lions Gate encouraged you? Show us! We have a small display area set aside in the "quiet room".
Bards- come and entertain during supper with stories, song and even a dance! 
Service minded people - as all events we need marshals, people to assist with water bearing, to set up the erics (I'm a an archer I dunno what the heck to do with those things) and gate!
Those that enjoy a flash of steel or the action of a heavy tourney we have a raised viewing area so you can see your favourite fighter smash or slice through their competitors.
