A long time ago I had the honor to cover a huge story. I was able to do an article on the PaxLair Guards taking a leave of absence. The PxG were disbanded some few months ago, and were never seen again.. until now. There have been a lot of questions going around on whether or not the PaxLair Guards [PxG] are back in PaxLair. To recap the reasons PxG were disbanded for; the following is something the captain of the guards at that time, Obsidian Dragon, said when I interviewed him at the time of their disbandment.
"PxG could have been classified as Blue PK's. The kind, OSI wanted to rid the game of." Obsidian Dragon stated. "Well, it was like a chain reaction. A NPK would come here [PaxLair], and kill a Grey Guard/Citizen/Affiliate.PxG would then come in, and proceed to kill, in cold blood, or Noto PK, the NPK. Problem is, with this new system, a "Red" may be rezzed. Thus, we rezzed our fallen Guards, allowing them to guard again. This.. however attracted more.. NPK's. PxG is known to be rather... tough. Perhaps not the best P vs. P. Never the less, we killed a lot of people, they learned we were red. Bamn. They show, kill us, kill our healers, disrupt RPing. Exactly the opposite of what PxG wanted."
"So, in effect, you were actually causing what you were trying to prevent?" I asked.
"Yes." Obsidian Dragon confirmed.
Today I visited The Band, the very guild which founded PaxLair, and the people who run the PxG. Most of them didn't think very much of the guards being brought back. I was told it was NOT to fight off anyone from pax, they were only coming back for The Band [TB] sparing events and such.
"We decided about 2 weeks ago to get a PvP stone. It was done for fun to give TB a stone to go to war with people, nothing more. We have no plans on bringing the pax guard back." Drake Woods of TB told me.
As I continued to ask questions, some of them seemed to believe I was asking too many. Eliminster of TB had this to say.
"I think Azazel sees through the lie.. I think we must give way to the higher power we all follow. THE SHEEP! The glory of his sheepdom must be made clear! The sheep are coming and we must pave the way. BOW DOWN or be mowed over by the bleep that is our sheep! Throw down your Sheers, resistance is futile!"
