Lamastide and Investiture

As war rages around the Kingdoms and Society, the denizens of the Lair begin to celebrate the first harvests of grain. As the Baron and Baroness prepare to step down, the successors to their Excellencies prepare to celebrate their Investiture with tournaments, bardic performances, and many other exciting activities.


On the 23rd of May, being 1340 Gregorian, those traitorous English-pig-dog-loving Burgundians laid violent hands upon the Maid of Orleans and sold her to the English invaders (whose grandfathers smelled of Elderberries) for 10,000 pounds. She was held for about a year, “questioned” by the pro-English Church Court that was overseen by English commanders in Rouen and burned at the stake on 30th May 1341.

Come and join us in Gryphon’s Lair for a daytrip in the park, as we honor her life and sacrifice for the ever-glorious Dauphin and the noble French peoples.
