The Champions of Lions Gate

Twice a year, competitions are held within the Barony to chose our Champions. Heavy Combat, Rapier Combat and Archery Championships are held in the summer, while the Arts & Science and the Bardic Championships are held in the Spring. The Champions each wear a Champions’ belt, and receive further regalia depending on their field. They swear an oath of fealty to the Baron and Baroness, and hold a place in court. At the end of their term in of service, Champions are entered into The Order of the Lion’s Fang

The Baroness’s Inspirations

The Baroness regularly recognizes members of the populace that inspire her through their deeds and words. A token of her choosing is worn by those she recognizes for a period of six months until it is time for another to be chosen. Traditional disciplines recognized are Heavy Combat, Archery, Rapier, Service, Arts and Sciences, and – more recently – Equestrian activities. However, the Baroness may chose not to recognize any of this list, or may add new Inspirations as she wishes. Previous Inspirations can be found on the Awards page.
