Located in the heart of the Vashnars within the Garden of the Arts in Cyrene, members of the House of Ty Beirdd dedicated their lives to their art, no matter if that art was created with paint and canvas or rapiers and song. The House expanded upon the initial paths offered by the Guild so that all members were encouraged to develop their own unique, artistic passion.
After centuries of song, and a month of prophetic discovery, the Ty Beirdd House was dissolved during the House Renaissance of Cyrene. Many view the Virtuosi as Ty Beirdd's spiritual successors.
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."

No icon was raised in honour of Ty Beirdd.
There were many who resided within the halls of Ty Beirdd, each with a key role to play. For those who were seeking a merry drink, Sam the bartender was most certainly the denizen to see, though the more studious adventurer may have wished to visit the tutor Riordan.
