Vaeluthil Whitevale (2015/12/16 - present)
Vael was the first of two challengers to form up a rare renegade queue to take on Guaire (the other being Layla Paine (link)). A span of roughly 20 minutes separated the declarations of challenge. Guaire was quick to respond and set things in motion, the pair met in the ring less than a week later for a best of three contest. In both of the two duels, the baron jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the opening two rounds. Guiare's strong starts couldn't be capitalized on, however, as Vael struck in the 3rd round of both to steal his momentum and carry it through to 5-4 and 5-3 victories. (link)

Vaeluthil's first challenge came from Anubis Karos, veteran of the arena and multi ring holder. The two had had a past interaction and the Egyptian was looking to settle the score. Overlord Matt Simon had other ideas, however, and chose to intercede on the affair with a Test of Worthiness. With no renegade barons willing to take up the Right to Challenge fight, Anubis was forced to meet Matt directly. The pair took their time getting the feel of the fight and first blood wasn't drawn until the 5th round when Matt avoided a thrust and countered. The duel went 14 rounds in total before it was over, but the Overlord came out on top. A successful defense of his loyal baroness, Vael retained her ring as Matt took the 5-3 win. (link)

Challenge number two came as a result of the 2016 Trick or Treat Challenge event. With all barons open to challenge from a duelist of any rank, Vael found herself confronted by Hajime Aki. With little pre challenge fanfare, they met two weeks later to fight it out in best of three format. Vael, fighting below her banner of purple sparkles, was seconded by her brother Cael and fought in honor of a long list of people including the challenger. Aki, for his part, held to a blue standard emblazoned wtih a white tornado. He had no second and declared the Overlady Jewell Ravenlock as lady of honor. This was slightly odd given Vael's status as a loyal baron, but didn't seem to trouble anyone at the time. The actual fighting began with a pair of null rounds as they tested each other's blades in matched cuts and then saw Aki slowly take it over and pull off the 5-2, 13 round upset. That was the last time Aki would see a lead on this night however. The second duel was close, within a point the whole way through, but Vael took it in a dual impalement to win 5-4 in 9. The final was short and sweet, Vael apparently having had enough of play time. Cross cuts in the first had things tied, but then she took over and a matched pair of thrusts brought the score to 4-2 in the 5th. The senior baroness completed her defense in the 6th round, cutting low into Aki's attempt to duck away. With a 5-2, 6 round score Vael took 2 of 3 duels to hold onto her ring. (link)

Having won the Madness tournament of 2017, Myria Graziano had a baron challenge grant to award. She gave the grant to Lacey Tamarez and Lacey used it to take on the Senior Baroness. Vael, however, would never step into the ring. Overlady Jewell was present that night and soon to be defending against Myria herself, she stepped in with the test to bar Lacey's path. It wasn't to be a good night for the Wrecking Crew faithful as the Overlady took the duel by score of 5-3.5 in 11. (link)


Guaire Bryne (2015/12/05 - 2015/12/16)
When Guaire issued challenge to Bile, the baron had both Rayvinn and Jewell at his side in some partial payment for the dates he'd won earning the barony in the first place. Despite having arrived with Bile, the renegade baroness of Dockside still stood up to fight the Right to Challenge for Guiare when Overlord Nayun interceded on the fight. A thorn in the Overlord's side, this was the second time in a week that Jewell would get in Nayun's path and the second Right to Challenge to go her way. In a 5-2, 10 round, finish the baroness cleared the challenger's path. For the main event, the Sith Baron was quick to attack, scoring in each of the first two rounds to take a 2-0 lead. Guaire got his feet under him and struck back in the 3rd and 4th to tie the score, then after giving away a 3rd point in the 5th would proceed to score in the final three rounds of the match to take the 5-3 victory. (link)


Bile (2015/11/18 - 2015/12/05)
Whether simply for the title or to claim the date offered by new DoS Coordinator Rayvinn Darkmont for successful challengers, Bile came for Melanie looking to collect on both. The pair met at midnight and fought a single duel under black standards. After six rounds Bile came out on top, 5-3. (link)


Melanie Rostol (2015/10/20 - 2015/11/18)
Melanie was the first to challenge Anubis, who had never gotten his shot at Rand. Melanie fought below a black standard, naming Peaches as he lady of honor, while Anubis fought below the silvery Eye of Ra, naming Tara his lady of honor, in absentia. The match was a single duel, with Anubis taking the early lead. Out to a 1.5 - 0 lead after two he had trouble getting on the scoreboard again as Melanie took over and kept him scoreless through the six rounds to follow. Anubis found his footing and narrowed the gap, but it was Melanie would emerged the victor with a thrust in the 13th (6-4.5). (link)


Anubis Karos (2015/09/18 - 2015/10/20)
As usual, Anubis had his sights set more on the title of Overlord than that of Baron, but felt the intermediary step a necessity. Set upon eventually removing then Overlord Rand al'Tan, as well as stating the excellent arrangements the manor offered for slave pens, the Egyptian set out to claim Seaside from Myria. The baroness drew first blood with a thrust in the opening round, then lost the lead a reversal of fortunes in form of a thrust from Anubis in the 4th. The slaver took the lead from there and never looked back, eventually taking the 5-3 win in 9 rounds. (link)


Myria Graziano (2015/01/18 - 2015/09/18)
Myria Graziano came along a month or so later to challenge Artemus for Seaside. A far less dramatic affair, the pair faced off in a best of three less than two weeks later. It only took two of the duels to decide the outcome, though both were very close. In a pair of 5-4, 10 round, victories Myria claimed her first barony. (link)

The first to challenge Myria for the ring was Sabine Gabrielle, fresh off achieving the rank of warlord. Repeating the best of three format from when she had won the barony, Myria added a consecutive 5-4 in 10 victory to her list of challenge matches and then broke pattern with a commanding 5-3 in 6 duel to complete the defense in two duels. (link)

With both of them departing the annual Madness tourney before the third round, Shadow decided they should have something else to fight for and threw down the gauntlet. Changing things up a bit, the baroness selected a single duel to decide the outcome, though the end result was the same. Shadow sidestepped his way into the lead in the 3rd round, but Myria would take it right back and cut low to catch him ducking in the 7th to close out the 5-3 victory. (link)

The Spring Cycle tournament of warlords was won by Red ur'Thorne with Rhiannon Harker taking second of what was only a three woman event. (link) Rhi was awarded the baron challenge grant and chose Myria as her target. My returned to the best of three format, though this one would take all three contests. Each lady won one of the duels easily; My 5-1 in 5 for the first, Rhiannon 5-2 in 9 for the second. The third and deciding duel was a far closer affair, ending with an exchange of cuts in the 9th to end 5-4 in Myria's favor. (link)


Artemus Kurgen (2014/10/25 - 2015/01/18)
The next holder over the Overlord's grant followed through with the challenge to Aya. Artemus Kurgen, receiving the gift from then Overlord Gren Blockman, came to claim the Seaside ring. Aya started out strong in the single duel match and held a 4-2 lead after 7, but just could not put the challenger away. Caught in untimely thrusts in both the 8th and 10th rounds, Aya left the door open for Artemus as they headed into a sudden death 11th. The challenger struck high, outreaching Aya's parry to complete the comeback victory and claim the barony. (link)

The first challenge to Artemus came from Melanie Rostol and took some interesting twists. In the Fall Cycle Warlord Tournament, held just a few days after this challenge had been issued, Melanie took first place and was awarded an intercession free challenge to the Overlord. (link) As it happens, however, Melanie was in a relationship with the Overlord (Terry King) at the time and did not intend to use it, though it would have been impossible to move forward with both challenges due in part to Artemus' loyal alignment. Artemus wrote unkindly in regard to Melanie's claiming of the WLT prize as a defense of Terry and things escalated a bit resulting in Terry banishing him to Renegade (link). The result was a wrench in Melanie's plans to protect the Overlord, as the banishment gave Artemus the immediate right to challenge her in retaliation - which he did. While technically Melanie could have maintained her challenge as a form of renegade challenge queue, he patience with the matter had been exhausted and she rescinded. (link) Artemus would ultimately continue on as Baron of Seaside, after a 5-4 defeate at the hands of the Overlord. (link)


Aya Hayashibara (2014/06/03 - 2014/10/25)
Runner up in the Spring Cycle Warlord Tournament of 2014 (link), Aya was awarded an intercession free challenge to the baron of her choice. As it happens, she chose Seaside. The duel was fought in single duel format and controlled by Lilly for most of the first 10 rounds. Aya struck with a low cut in the 11th to take her first lead and a daring slash in the 14th to cap the 5-4 victory. (link)

Aya's first challenge was in the form of two time Overlord, Rakeesh Sah Tarna, hoping to mark his return to the arena by claiming a barony. Aya chose to meet him in a single duel and had very different ideas as to the outcome. The baroness lept to a 4-0 lead before the liontaur could even get on the board. Rakeesh struck in three consecutive rounds at the end to make a showing of it, but the third was a trade of cuts giving Aya her fifth and final point. (link)

Gifted the Overlord's challenge grant by the Lady Morgan le Fay, Rhiannon Harker was to be Aya's next challenger. When Aurast declared himself renegade to the Overlady, however, this challenge was rescinded as he appeared to present a better target for the grant holder. (link)


Lilly Hyde (2014/04/08 - 2014/06/03)
Morgan le Fay won a small tournament of barons, from which Claire had abstained, after Vanion disappeared and awarded her first grant to Lily Hyde. With only two renegade barons to choose from, Lily continued the pattern of grant challengers attempting to claim Seaside and issued challenge to Claire. The match was another best of three and again took only two duels, but that's where the similarities to Claire's last defense end. Lily took both of them 5-3.5 in 15 and 5-3 in 9 to claim the ring and increase Morgan's cadre of loyalists. (link)


Claire Farron (2013/11/01 - 2014/04/08)
For the 2013 celebration of All Hallows Eve, Coordinator Norah held the Swordstober Swordsabration (link) Open to duelists of all ranks, any duelist logging 2 duels in each of the first four weeks of October received a raffle entry. Four tickets to be awarded at the end to favor the winners with an intercession free baronial challenge. Claire was one such winner and cashed in the prize to challenge Terry. The prize was put to good use and in close 10 round duel, Claire came out on top 5-4. (link)

Claire's first challenge came from Bile. The sith had received a grant from Overlord Vanion Shadowcast. Unable to capitalize on the free shot the same way Claire had, Bile did make an impressive run at it in the second duel of this best of three event. While the first duel was an effecient 5-2 in 8 round win for the baroness, the second was a marathon of 20 rounds. First to strike, Bile's opening high cut caught Claire before she could sidestep out of range, the sith still held a lead (6.5-6) in the 16th round before the baroness struck with a low cut in the 17th to take command for the first time. Three rounds later, she trapped his thrust to take the 9-8 win. (link)


Terry King (2013/08/08 - 2013/11/01)
Terry skipped out on the 2013 Hydra tournament, but still held an affiliation with Team BeatDown. Given that G wasn't on TBD and had just taken a ring from TBD, he was the obvious candidate to go after. Determined in a single duel, the action was back and forth throughout, with both holding the lead on two separate occasions. Terry's second lead of the night began in the 10th round, sidestepping a parry, which she followed up with a winning low cut in the 11th to take the barony. (link)


G'nort Dragoon-Talanador (2013/07/20 - 2013/08/08)
With the 2013 Hydra season in full swing, G'nort came looking to claim challenge points by taking Apple's ring. Apple's Team BeatDown continued to be the dominant force in Hydra while G's Company of the Dragon sat in the middle of the pack. With fifteen tournament points at stake, G was strong from the outset. He high cut over a low parry in the 1st round to take the opening point and then again in the 6th round to take the last. In a 5-2 finish, G'nort took over Seaside. (link)


Andrea "Apple" Anderson (2012/10/18 - 2013/07/20)
Overlord Candy Hart awarded the cycle's grant to Apple who challenged Tical to claim Seaside. The duel was a gruelling 22 round affair, though thankfully for the baron and challenger it was a simple one shot match. With multiple lead changes throughout, it was Apple who landed a high cut in the last to take the 7.5 - 6.5 victory. (link)

Jay Capistrano was the first to step forward to take a shot at Apple's hold on Seaside. When Overlord Candy stepped in to defend her loyal baroness, Jay had renegade baron Rakeesh Sah Tarna in his corner to fight the Right to Challenge. Rakeesh was first on the board, but the Overlord wasn't to be stopped this night. Candy took control in the 3rd round and continued through to a 5.5-3, 12 round win. With no help from his champion, Jay was forced to face Candy in the Test of Worthiness. It was close, but ultimately Jay wouldn't be able to prove his worthiness. Candy marked up her second win of the night, 5-4 in 9 round, to successfully defend Apple's ring for her. (link)

After Rakeesh defeated Candy to become the 91st Overlord, he held a tournament to award the Overlord's grant. It was an invitational for his Champions of Mythos team as well as a half dozen or so unaffiliated duelists. In the end it was Kyra Jessup, who went 5-0 on the night(link), who claimed the prize and used it to challenge Apple. Kyra's tournament luck didn't translate well into the challenge ring, however, and Apple thoroughly commanded the night. It was a best of three affair, but required only two duels. With wins of 5-2 and 5-1, Apple retained the barony. (link)


Ticallion Carter (2012/08/09 - 2012/10/18)
With Chris Graziano as the sitting Overlord, Wrecking Crew teammate Ticallion Carter looked to pick up a barony to bolster the team standing. Since Gwen stood renegade, she was an easy choice. In the single duel match, Gwen started off strong and held a 3-1 lead in the 5th, but Tical slowly cut his way back into it. Scoring in four consecutive rounds, he took the duel 5-3 in the 9th and became the new holder of Seaside. (link)


Gwen Minx (2010/11/22 - 2012/08/09)
The next challenger for Seaside was newly minted Warlord Gwen Minx who was seeking a fun and interesting challenge upon gaining rank. A best-of-three format was decided upon and both of the matches went to Gwen, 5-3 in 7 rounds and 5-4 in 7 rounds, making her the newest Baroness of Seaside. (link)

Gwen's first challenge came from Guaire Bryne during the 2011 Intergender War. Discussions over times and callers got a little bit heated, eventually requiring Corlanthis (assistant DoS Coord) to step in and get a date settled. After arriving late to the match, Guaire found himself in the ring instead with Overlord Aya Hayashibari who opted to apply the test of worthiness. Xeric was unable to complete the duel with the Overlord, eventually being ruled in forfeit for delay. (link)

Gwen waived the loyal baron's grace in April (link), but no challenge presented until late June when Teagan sought her out. Gwen struck first when the entered the ring for a single duel affair, thrusting below a high cut and following low to take a 2-0 lead. Teagan struck back and by the 7th round they were tied at 4. A timely duck and counter from the baroness in the 9th brought the match to a close and preserved Gwen's right to the ring. (link)

By the time October rolled around, Gwen had become the Senior Baron and Shadow wanted a shot at her. The Overlord, Ellisa Morgan, had other thoughs and interceded on behalf of her loyal baroness. The duel went 18 long rounds, but saw Shadow dispatched in a 5-3.5 finish. (link)


Wyheree Ravenlock g'Ark'Hiradan (2010/05/18 - 2010/11/22)
After taking into consideration the waterfront property of Seaside and Jaycy's status as Senior Baroness, new Warlord Wyheree Ravenlock g'Ark'hiradan decided to challenge Jaycy for her title. Jaycy opted for a best-of-three and jumped out to a quick 2.5-0 lead. Though in the end the first match eventually went to Wyheree, 5-3.5 in 10 rounds. The second match was determined in a quick 6 rounds with Wyheree the victor and new Baroness with a score of 5-3. (link)

Wyheree's first challenge came from the Minion of Deathlord, squire to the then current Baron of New Haven, Deathlord. Seeking to expand Deathlord's sphere of influence the DeathSquire jumped on the opportunity of waterfront property. Wyheree settled for a best-of-three, only once surrendering the lead in the first match as she eventually went on to win 5-3.5 in 9 rounds. The second match proved to be a lopsided engagement, with the Minion only allowed a single point in a trade of thrusts as Wyheree defeated him 5-1 in 6 swift rounds. (link)

Although a loyal baroness at the time, Wyheree issued challenge to Overlord Imp. A seldom used portion of the challenge rules allow loyal barons challenge rights when the sitting Overlord has a record that would fall below what one needs to attain warlord. Wyh had Xeno step in to defend her right to challenge when Harris was tapped to intercede for the Overlord. Both Xeno and Wyheree fell to Harris in the attempt and left Imp with the mantle. (link)


Jaycynda Ashleana (2009/07/30 - 2010/05/18)
Jaycy took some offense to the way Guill had handled his Warlord Tournament win and the way he'd declined the prize. (link) Guill had declared it a matter of honor that he decline the prizes offered vs earning them in their traditional sense. Feeling this disparaged any of a long list of warlords who had taken such a prize in the past, she set forth to remove Guill from Seaside. They fought a best of three series and the sitting baron came out on top in the first; a close 5-4 in 12 round duel. Guill was looking good in the second duel as well when he jumped out to a 2.5 - 0.5 lead after 6 rounds, but Jaycy then took control and score 4.5 unanswered points to win. The final fight was neck and neck through 6 rounds, each holding leads as they advanced the score to 3 a piece. Jaycy broke the tie in the 7th to take the lead once more and then ended it in the 8th with a low cut to claim the ring. (link)

Early on, one of Jaycy's first acts as Baroness was to hold a Squire tournament. The winner of this tournament was one Salvador Delahada. Shortly thereafter, Salvador was again given an Overlord grant by then baron Teagan Rielea, and used it to challenge Anubis, who had issued challenge to Teagan for the Overlord title. It was decided that should Anubis become Overlord, Salvador would be permitted to reissue his challenge.

During the Overlord match, Jaycy held Teagan as a slave, in order to thwart a perceived threat by Anubis that he would enslave any females who issued challenge to him and failed. This angered a sizable portion of the community, Salvador included. Citing his reasons as being because he considered Jaycy a liar and a cheat, he issued challenge to Jaycy due to Anubis defeating Teagan. When the time for the challenge arrived, the Baroness elected for a Single Elimination format and proceeded to take to the ring against her Squire. The single match was indeed a see/saw battle, a testament to the tutelage of the Baroness to her Squire , with the lead changing hands several times, and which also saw no null rounds. In the end, however, it was Jaycy who emerged victorious, and she retained the right to remain Seasides Baroness. (link)

In a continuation of their feud over honor, Guill challenged to retake Seaside from Jaycy. When Joex Rodlain challenged Vanion for the Barony of Dockside, then Overlord Anubis interceded to defend his loyal baron. Jaycy exercized her renegade rights in a Right to Challenge fight and bested the Overlord 5-1 to allow the challenge to continue (link). Guill claimed this intercession on behalf of a challenger was dishonorable. While the statement caused of a bit of commotion, the baroness herself said little outside the ring in response and instead allowed her sword to speak for her. This time they fought a single duel, though Guill once again started off with a lead (2-0 after 3), Jaycy took control by the 6th round and eventually took the 5.5 - 4.5 in 14 victory. (link)


Guillermus Iulius Fortis (2009/07/20 - 2009/07/30)
Guill won the Spring Cycle tournament of warlords (link), but declined to take a prize, which included not only the intercession free Overlord challenge, but also the barony of Old Temple. At the time he stated that he felt the barony need be earned through combat against a sitting baron. A couple days later then, he put forth his challenge to Damien. The matter of Xeric's challenge was still before the Baron's Council at the time, but since Damien stood renegade to the Overlord it held as a valid challenge queue. They fought in a best of three, though only needed two duels to complete the affair. Both duels were close; the first a back and forth affair that ended 5-4 in the 11th round and the second a gruelling 16 rounder where Guill caught Damien with a low cut to beat an attempted slash and take the 7.5 - 6 victory. (link)


Damien Mortis (2007/08/08 - 2009/07/20)
Karen's rest between challenges this time was not long. Only days before Karen was set to challenge Overlord Ganderfald for the mantle, Cletus' longtime ally, Damien Mortis, issued his own challenge to the Baroness. Karen and Damien were no strangers to each other, and this challenge marked the fourth time Damien issued a challenge to one of Karen's reigns. Ironically, Karen inherited Seaside from Damien after her second Overlord reign came to a close. Their fourth challenge was little different than the previous two, and Damien continued to prove he had Karen's number. In two short matches, Damien claimed Seaside with two five to two victories that spanned six and eleven rounds. (link)

Warlord Cassius Maximius' history with Damien Mortis stretched back many years. The two have fought, feuded, and stepped into the challenge ring on many occasions. The next chapter in their rivalry was written when Cas issued challenge to Damien. However, another chapter in Cas and Cletus Ganderfald's, the Overlord at the time, history was written on the night Damien was scheduled to meet Cassius.Before the match could begin, Cletus stepped forward to announce that he would be dueling the Baron of Old Market, G'nort Dragoon Talanador, to decide if Cassius' challenge would proceed. In a perfect shutout, Cletus defeated the Baron to force Cassius to defend his own right to challenge. Cletus was nearly as strong against the Warlord, allowing only two points en route to a five to two win in ten rounds. Damien's reign was defended. (link)

Damien challenged for Overlord Roland Sal Roa in the Winter of 2008. Roland pulled in Sartan to conduct the Test of Worthiness while the baron had Xeric Mues step in for the Right to Challenge counter. The Overlord's champion won, but then lost in the Test, allowing Damien to follow through on his challenge. In the main event it was the Overlord to come out on top of a 5-4, 10 round duel leaving Damient to continue on in Seaside. (link)

The next challenge to Damien's hold on the ring came from Xeric, looking to finish what they'd started in the Overlord challenge. Neither the Russian, nor the Baron dueled with colors or ladies of honor. Damien chose a single duel for the match and while it was close through the 7th, the baron eventually pulled away to win 5-3 in 9. (link)

The warlord Joex Rodlain made the next attempt, in May of 2008. Damien elected a best of three for this challenge and fought under the banner of Polaris with Jack as his second. Joex flew no standard, but had the previous challenger, Xeric, at his side. The duels were thoroughly controlled by Damien and the baron would cruise to 5-2 and 5-1 victories to retain the barony without the need of a third bout. (link)

Cass came around for another attempt at the ring in August, though with far less drama this time around. The two fought a best of three match which saw Cass draw first blood and take the first fight in a 7.5-6.5, 18 round marathon. Wore down perhaps by the length of the first duel, duels two and three went progressively worse for the challenger. While the second was still close, Damien winning 5.5-4.5 in 11 rounds, the third was a lopsided 5-2 in a 11, again in Damien's favor. (link)

It took 10 months before another challenger knocked on the doors of Seaside Manor. Xeric Mues issued challenge in mid June of 2009, but the fight would never take place. When Xeric failed to make an appearance, the matter was turned over to the Baron's Council who ruled the matter a forfeit of challenge. (link)


Karen Wilder (2006/05/11 - 2007/08/08)
Dethroned by Damien, Karen took over Seaside and vowed that she would not challenge him so long as he remained Overlord. (link)

When Vanion Knightwood-Shadowcast challenged Baroness Wilder, the bad/blood between the two was clearly evident. On the night of the match, both were clad in full mail armor and wielded war swords. With hard strikes exchanged between the two, the first duel of the evening stood tied at four before Karen was able to deflect a low strike and win the first match, 5-4 in eleven rounds. Karen was clearly dominant in the second match and only allowed Vanion a single strike en route to a 5-1 victory in seven rounds. However, the single cut bore serious consequences as Vanion was using an envenomed dagger. (link)

Karen was back to full health when she was set with her next challenge. In a much less venomous affair, the carpenter Rab Mallet challenged Karen with all the cheer and good humor he was known for. Unfortunately for him, he was only able to win the second duel of the night. By winning the first and third, Karen once again defended Seaside. (link)

After Cletus Ganderfald claimed the mantle, Karen made it no secret that she would be challenging the new Overlord. So it was no surprise when the recipient of Cletus' grant, Losden Fagan, used his opportunity to challenge Karen. Losden was a high ranking member in Cletus' Nasuikaa family and wanted to claim Seaside to ensure the safety of family investments in the area.

Grayson MacLeod was challenged by Cletus Ganderfald because the smell of the sea was fond to Cletus. Cletus also required a new home to reside in. While Cletus dueled under the colors of Polaris, he had no one present in an official capacity at ringside. Grayson dueled under the colors of his family MacLeod tartan with Max as his Second and no Lady of Honor. This challenge match was completed in a single duel that saw Cletus trying to wrest the title from the Scot's grasp with a comeback attempt in which the challenger was a point away from losing while down by three points. Grayson eventually closed it out in the tenth round by a two-point margin of victory. (link)
