    PaxLair 12th Anniversary
    January 14-19, 2010
    (founded on January 19, 1998)

    PaxLair City was founded on January 19, 1998 in the meadow west of the Compassion Shrine on Felucca. Throughout its history, it served with other player-towns to help communities and people work together. In the old days before Trammel, PaxLair was a vibrant crossroads for good, neutral, and evil. It is blessed by the gods with unique indoor and outdoor features. On November 11, 1998, Lord British himself visited PaxLair City to honor the city's founders. PaxLair is the oldest, continuously running "player-town" on the Chesapeake Shard.

    Today, PaxLair is a Statehood of three wonderful cities: PaxLair City, Dragons Watch, and PaxOku. Each city is unique and brings different wonders to the Realm through citizens, allies, and friends. PaxLair is based on tenets of Peace, Neutrality, and Roleplaying.

    Locations - Most events are easy to find. If you need help getting to PaxLair City or Dragons Watch, the Tea House in PaxOku has several teleporters.
