    PaxLair, Chesapeake (PaxLair Times) – January 12, 2012 – by Winfield – PaxLair announces its 14th Anniversary on Chesapeake. This article contains some background and an agenda for January 15 through 19, 2012.

    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 four wonderful cities: PaxLair City, Dragons Watch, PaxOku, and Nidaros — And an Alliance with three more wonderful cities: Gyldenfeld, Pitmuck, and Aryslan. 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.

    Due to part of the course being blocked by landslides, the secondary course will be used.



    As shown in the map below, racers will start from the Shrine of Compassion and end at the Shrine of Valor.

    Thank you everyone who could attend and participate in our PaxLair 14th Anniversary last week. It was a lot of fun, and actually the "quests" are not yet completed.

    I also thank all of you who've worked with us this past year and in previous years. We look forward to many more years on the Chesapeake Shard and in the Realm-at-large.

    Customary for each anniversary, I give a speech at the final day's dinner. I just published a news article for the speech and some images.

    PaxLair 14th Anniversary Speech by Governor Winfield | PaxLair Times

    You can also read more news of PaxLair and things we encounter and enjoy around the shard in our PaxLair Times - PaxLair Times | The PaxLair News Service

    Sincerely,
    Winfield, Governor of PaxLair Statehood and Old Man
