Located in the heart of the Vashnars within the Garden of the Arts in Cyrene, members of the House of Ty Beirdd dedicate their lives to their art, no matter if that art is created with paint and canvas or rapiers and song. The House has expanded upon the initial paths offered by the Guild so that all members are encouraged to develop their own unique, artistic passion.
Ralph Mercadia (born 5 Sarapin, 264 AF) was a singer and performer. During a casual festival of the arts, he learned the songs of Scarlatti. The God of the Arts encouraged him to continue to develop the lyrical ballads and melodic skills of the Bard. Ralph's labour led to the formation of both the Bard class and Bards Guild. The guild was founded on the 21st day of Mayan, in the year 350 AF. Its arrival had been long anticipated by the world and was received with much enthusiasm and fanfare, befitting of the Guild's nature as the performers and artists of the realms. It was Ralph's dream for the Guild to be like an Academie of Music, seeking potential and talent in new members: "Great artists of today who seek to become better, and the great bards of tomorrow who may someday supercede them."

There are many who reside within the halls of Ty Beirdd, each with a key role to play. For those who are seeking a merry drink, Sam the bartender would most certainly be the denizen to see, though the more studious adventurer may wish to visit the tutor Riordan.
