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.
