Lyondemere and Gyldenholt Virtual Anniversary – June 26, 2021

Saturday, June 26, 2021

Their Excellencies Lyondemere and Gyldenholt cordially invite you to join them for the Virtual Anniversary of both baronies, June 26, 2021, starting at 1 PM (Pacific). The overall theme of the event is Stories! There will be games, our Lyon Bard competition, virtual Arts & Science competition, and a festive revel!

We will be hosting our event via Zoom and have breakout rooms for the various activities. Links will be posted closer to the event itself.

Various Lists and Competitions

Armored: We will be hosting a bardic battle royal specific to our armored fighters, asking them to tell us an unbelievable story to amuse and awe the listeners! Looking for a “No s*** there I was!” sort of tale. Are you up for the challenge? This is separate from our Lyon Bard competition.

Rapier: Two words: ROBOT FIGHTS! Come to our virtual field to drive one of our rapier robots! From the comfort of your home, pilot a bloodthirsty bot and try to pop your opponent’s balloon. A second device to drive the robot while in the event Zoom meeting is recommended, but not required. Only two combatants at a time, so come early to claim your spot.

Archers: Defend our baronies via dice (d6, six-sided dice, regular dice)!

Arts & Sciences: Lyondemere is looking for Their champions! Lyondemere will be picking Their champions through all the electronic submissions. There will also be a People’s Choice to be awarded. Please share with us any newer (within the last 2 years), completed arts or science project with documentation. Extra points will go towards the submission that follows along with the “Story time” theme. All submissions can be seen here: Lyondemere Arts & Sciences People’s Choice – 2021.

Lyondemere is looking for our Lyon Bard!

  • The theme of the day is “Story Time,” and any medium is welcome such as singing, dance, traditional storytelling, puppet performances, or whatever can be performed.
  • We are looking for two submissions, one which can be prepared before the event, and the second, we would be asking for someone to create something that day, during the event.
  • Extra points if the entries involve Lyondemere’s history and past.

Stay tuned to the official virtual event posting on Facebook and this site for any updates or changes.
