The Barony of Granite Spyre has been in existence since 1993. Contract received by the BL on May 6th 1995.
Originally founded at Hermann Park in Houston, Texas by Sir Nomad Fishslayer, Sir Vaargard Malorius, and Sir Q (at the time known as Lothar). They were quickly joined by Dr. Rolin S. Phlogiston, Esq. and Valeran Holt, among others. These original five are generally considered the founding members of the group.
At this time in Amtgard's history, Houston was in a region unaffiliated to any kingdom. As Sir Nomad had played under the Golden Plains (Irongate) while at Texas Tech, the group agreed to petition the Golden Plains for membership as a barony. This request was granted in 1995.
Granite Spyre, along with Mordengaard (College Station, TX) and Stormwall (Galveston, TX), and in one instance at least, Spidervale; hosted several impressive events (called "Triple Midreign") well attended by the Amtgard populace. The success of these events, along with the continual work of the populace of Granite Spyre, played a key role in legitimizing the effort of unity and kingdomhood for Southeast Texan groups that eventually assembled as the Wetlands.
Granite Spyre continues to preserve this tradition of excellence. After a years-long dip in pupulation, and much hard work, Granite Spyre was upgraded to Duchy status at the Mid Reign Revel of King TERMUS, in February of 2014.
