[ART] Dragon's Tear

In the dawning of our world, the last pair of dragons flew through skies of sapphire blue.  With their great ages one landed to fall into his last sleep. Grief stricken for her loss, the last mighty Lady Dragon cried tears until she as well passed for this world into myth and legend. 

On July 12th Anno Societatis XXXII there were two beasts who as the Lady Dragon had birthed such wonder in her tears, they birthed a Kingdom of grace and might through their own cries. These beasts of course were the Gryphons that rear proudly on our kingdom banner.

In the beauty and grace of both the Dragons and the Gryphons we gather every year to remember them. With honor, chivalry, selfless service and the passing of knowledge. Their memory lives on with the Shire of Stan Wyrms' Dragon's Tear Event  We would be honored to have you join us July 13th, 14th & 15th.  Site will open noon Friday & closes 3pm Sunday. This is a wet site in period containers with above ground fire pits allowed according to the fire hazard rating for the area at the time. Also bring swim gear since there is a small wading creek close on hand.

Chivalric combatants will have plenty of opportunities to show their skills and test their metal against one another for honor and prizes worth their weight in dragons gold. The Championship Tourney will be open for all un-belted fighters. We will also host a Grand Tourney Champion open to all fighters un-belted & belted. Our traditional prize of a sword can be won in both tourneys.

Test your skills in Archery as well and do us all proud.  I would love to see the kind of skill shown once again this year that has been worthy of the stories of great bards in yesteryear. There will be a prize worthy of such skill in addition to the honor that comes with such.*

Light Fighters come one and all & show your lightning quick skills with blade. Show off your skills and grace for all to see. A wonderful prize is up for the best to win.

We call all bards, storytellers, poets, and balladeers to come to the banner of Stan Wyrm to show those near and far the skill that you possess. We will be having a competition and ask you to show your historic and obscure or your original pieces to all pieces for the honor of bearing the
hand stitched bardic favor of Stan Wyrm.

Anyone who would like to teach a class is more then welcome. Please contact Event Steward so we can plan your class & how much time you are in need of.
