The time has come for Their Excellencies Malkin and Owen to take to the seas and leave the Barony in the trusted hands of XXX. To honor this momentous occasion there will be tournaments, classes, food, fires, and fun! Please join the Barony of Gryphon’s Lair as we welcome our new Baronage. New champions are waiting to be recognized so bring your handmade items, your blades and your bows, your armor and axes, and try your luck at wearing the champion’s mantle. The new occupant(s) of the thrones of Gryphon’s Lair will be choosing new champions for heavy fighting, rapier fighting, thrown weapons, archery, and arts and sciences. Do you have what it takes to bring glory to the Lair?
We’re celebrating 15 years of Gryphon’s Lair as a Barony, so there will be a multitude of activities to honor the Lair:
