History

Land of the Wyvern's Spur was established in April of 2001. The original group that laid claim over the Berkeley Marina was known as the Land of the Burning Gnomes. When the veterans that first made up the older land left it to the next generation, it was renamed to Wyvern's Spur. The founders of Wyvern's Spur were known as Tevacious, Aldin, Nivek and Sodar. At one point, it was a chapter under the Kingdom of Blackspire, and it is one of the founding lands of the Northern California Confederacy, which later became the Kingdom of Westmarch.

The story of a tumultuous, and very silly, time known as the War and Conquest of the Sublands can be found here.

In July 2011, due to a low attendance (2-4 a week) Wyvern's Spur moved from Cesar Chavez Park to Codornices Park. Soon after, with 100% of the vote (of the two active members), Wyvern's Spur also self-demoted itself from Barony to Shire. It took a few years, but in March 2016, with the help of an amazing Barony Bid by Endol, the Kingdom of Westmarch voted Wyvern's Spur back to Barony - aside from one abstention, 100% in favor of promotion. #WyvernsSpurForBarony!

Traditions

For some time, many years back, there were issues filling our monarchy positions; a running gag that we were using squirrels started. It's now rumored that squirrels are the real power behind Wyvern's Spur; people are figureheads.

The Unicorn Clan! As King, Sir Deimos ran a quest line based on the Legend of the Five Rings, Wyvern's Spur was assigned the Unicorn Clan. However, unicorns have been well known to frequent Wyvern's Spur, dating back to Grix's frequent visits and brief inhabitancy of the land.

Directions

Since July 17th 2011, we've met at Codornices Park in Berkeley, across from the Rose Garden. You'll find us just up the main path that begins at the main park entrance. If the giant slides are on your left, and the baseball field & bathrooms are on your right then you are heading the correct direction.

To get to Codornices Park: Go up University Avenue, and turn left at campus onto Oxford. Take the first right at Hearst. Turn left at the second light onto Euclid. Codornices Park will be on your right a little after you start climbing the hills and as the road gets somewhat twisty. Parking can be interesting.
