Honor War 2013 - April 19-21

Sunlight & warmer temperatures are returning to the glorious kingdom of An Tir; driving away the long dark shadows of winter, spring is rushing to our lands!  And in the spring, an An Tirian’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of….WAR!

Join the College of Lyonsmarche for the most renowned and glorious War Concerning Lentils in the entire Knowne World! This year, Honor War is being held at an amazing, brand-new site. We will no longer be at Hellsgate State Park as in years past, but now at the Lewiston Round-Up grounds. What does this mean to you?

1. No more water hazard for young children or pets.

2.  The parking situation has been Vastly Improved.

3. Lots more flushies & showers; electricity is also available for RV’s and those with CPAP machines.

4. Not so much ‘noise-level consideration’ needed. Revels & merriment may proceed apace!

5. We are keeping the same fee schedule as last year, with no increases whatsoever. Huzzah!

6. Do not reserve cabins at Hellsgate Park unless you want to be there without us.

We will have our ever-popular War of the Lentils! Also shall be tested the mettle of those nobles who wish to vie for the honor of being the Champion of Lyonsmarche in: Arts & Sciences, Archery, Brewing, Bardic and Rapier. Will you gain the wordfame of winning one of these titles this year?

In addition, we will have the third Challenge of the Copper Dragon! This is a combined riddling contest & scavenger hunt, and both children as well as adults are invited to play. The last few years have seen the victors of this contest walk away with prize items indeed worthy of a dragon’s hoard. Contestants will be required to find as many riddles as they can (please leave them where they are),  and answer them correctly on their answer sheet. There will also be a handful of ‘scavenger hunt’ items to be tracked down and presented with the answer sheet. You may play as a single player, or as a team, but the prize(s) will be awarded the same. Get your instructions & answer sheet packet at gate, or from Aerngaldra.

Since the ‘Falling Stars’ shoot proved very popular the last two years, we shall see the return of this NIGHT TIME clout shoot. At the blast of the winding horn, a line of archers will loose their arrows mounted with glowsticks upwards to fall toward the target area roped off and outlined with glowsticks. This will be held Friday evening as soon as it is dark enough (approx 8 pm). Listen for the horns to call you to the range! Bring your archery gear, everything else will be provided.


We seek many of our Champions for the year at Honor War; there will be contests held in Archery, Brewing, Arts & Sciences, Bardic, & Rapier. Will you vie for the honor & wordfame that these Championships bring?

Arts &Sciences - This year for the Arts & Sciences Championship, the competition will be judged according to the criteria on the An Tir Arts & Sciences judging form. Please bring documentation, and be prepared to give an oral presentation to the judges. Contestants will also be invited to give a presentation on their entry in court. This is not required, but is worth bonus points. Please bring your entries to HL Aerngaldra.

 Rapier - The tournament for our Rapier Champion will be Sunday morning, details & rules available onsite. Our current Champion of Rapier is HL Michael of Lancaster.

 Brewing - This championship run by our current Brewing Champion HL Istvan Gyori, will be determined by a group of pre-determined judges who will be judging each entry based on several aspects. The judging criteria will be:

1) How well the entry matches the 'ideal' for that category.
2) The historical context and accuracy of ingredients and methods, which can be covered through written documentation and/or a brief presentation to the judges.
3) The overall quality of the entry.

Archery- Shooting will be at the 10, 20 and 30 yard targets possibly with extra points for an additional target at ground level. Shooting is tentatively scheduled for 9-11am and 3-5pm on Saturday for the competition. Our current Archery Champion is HL Maighread of Wastekeep.

Bardic- Come and entertain us in your best bardic fashion Saturday night around the fire to compete for the honor of being Lyonsmarche’s Bardic Champion. Our current Bardic Champion is Her Grace Mary Grace; the HL Istvan Gyori will be running this championship in her stead. Enjoy the hospitality & efforts of our resident excellent brewmeistress, Tova Fransdottir who will have homebrewed beer available to those (21 and over) who attend or compete. Similarly to last year, this will be a populace choice championship where those wishing to enter will perform and after all the entrants have performed, a champion will be selected either by a group of Lyonsmarchers who will assess how much applause each entrant earned, or it might be done by people placing beads into bowls similarly to how populace choice is often done for A&S.

A new "Iron Needle" contest will be offered, wherein the creativity & sewing ability of the contestants will be tested. Mistress Morgaina will be running this contest, details below.
