Autocrat: Galath ab Edwin

2013 Barony of Lions Gate : Sergeant, Yeoman, Gallant, Courtier trials

Date: Aug 16, 17, &18 2012 

Steward; Sergeant Galath ab Edwin (

Come support those members of Lions Gate's populace as they challenge for the rank of Sergeant, Yeoman, Gallant, or Courtier. Have a chance to see our Equestrian riders challenge themselves with a brand new rank, the demonstration rank of lancer. There are a number of challengers this year, they will appreciate your kind word, piece of pie, or readiness to be lead. Challenge yourself with the questions each candidate must know for heraldry, strategy, games, dance! These are our future, or current leaders, join them in a truly formative experience. Or just enjoy a day, perhaps with games, archery, or a picnic with good friends. Bring a song or story to share around the Bardic fire! Learn a dance! Fight in the unbelted tourney!

The Grene Wode is a delightful location for our Barony to gather and share a pivotal moment in peoples lives. Rainbows, sunshine, quiet joy, and riotous fun can be had by all camping for the weekend.


All Candidates Must Attend Opening Court Saturday Morning bring your device! The Baroness should already have your written application in hand.

Testing for some areas will be done by designated testers, but the input of the populace is important and welcome. Combat testing will welcome participation by heavies, rapiers and archers. Dancing is better with greater numbers, and a bardic test without an audience is a shame.

Members of the populace will be heard in the Sunday morning circle discussions, as the personal qualities of the applicants are examined. Or contact the Baroness directly if you can not attend. 

Merchant space will be available no charge - bring your own tables please. Contact the Stewards.
