Decisions to make about Loyalties in the Realm

Sunday, 22 November 2009

Governor Winfield introduces the topic of Loyalties for a monarch in the Realm.  PaxLair Statehood is unique with three cities and many guilds of differing attitudes about good and evil and for or against "saving the Realm from evil".  Therefore, Governor Winfield offers ideas and options that might also be used by other towns, cities, and guilds in the Realm.

November 19, 2009 - PaxLair Statehood, Chesapeake

The PaxLair Statehood hosted a special tour for EM Vladimere on Thursday, November 19, 2009. The tour was part of the banner and teleporter project brought up by Chesapeake citizens and the Event Managers. The PaxLair tour went to PaxOku in Tokuno, the Olag Hai Orc Fort in Felucca, and PaxLair City in Felucca. The tour of Dragons Watch took place the previous day. As a reminder, PaxLair is a Statehood of three cities: PaxLair City, Dragons Watch, and PaxOku. PaxLair also has various outposts, forts, centers, and favorite fishing spots (for the Governor).

The PaxOku tour highlighted the Silent Rose Library with a theatre and over 800 "player books". The tour also showed the Tea House that has house-to-house teleporters to PaxLair City and Dragons Watch; the Museum of the Virtues; and several other houses. PaxOku is focusing on cultural aspects of communities, history, events, quests, and creativity.

PaxOku (Tea House)


The Olag Hai Orc Fort tour illustrated history with the Interest Game Masters and Seers in the 1998-1999 era. The IGMs built a fort for the player-orcs, not requiring any player-housing. This orc fort focuses on combat-oriented events and interaction, preferably for Role-playing purposes.

The PaxLair City tour focused on history and current activities in the city. PaxLair City was "blessed" by the IGMs and Seers during 1998-1999 with unique items in some buildings and around the streets. The City is the Statehood capital and available for use by all Statehood citizens; in fact, nearly all facilities (especially the "blessed" buildings) are open-to-all on the shard.

The PaxLair tour covered about 30 houses and 10 outdoor features in three separate locations on two facets. It was attended by EM Vladimere, Statehood citizens, and visitors.

PAXLAIR CITY - July 24, 2008

We have not published much information lately on the ethereal PaxLair Site .... sorry about that.  BUT, we have a very, very notable event with lots of history!


Lenora penning the Tycho Veg Biography

Yes, Lenora has researched and penned a Biography of Tycho Veg, a long-ago citizen and official of PaxLair City well before PaxLair became a Statehood.  So this is many years ago, practically to the beginning of PaxLair (ca. 1998).

Tycho Veg was one of then Mayor Winfield's chancellors and the one who also invented the flying machine ... among other contraptions.

Lenora will RELEASE the book to an open BANQUET as follows:

  • Date: Sunday, July 27, 2008
  • Time: 8 PM Eastern Tim
  • Location: Luigi's Cafe behind the Twin Towers, PaxLair City, Felucca



The PaxLair City (Luigi's) Outdoor Cafe

First copies of the book will be available for a mere 100 gold to help in the upkeep of the PaxLair Library in the Mage Tower.  See the Library there for many more books of interest!

We hope to see everyone at this event!


Winfield, Old Man and Governor of PaxLair Statehood

Acting Governors Needed, May 27 to July 1

May 23, 2008 - PaxLair Statehood

Governor Winfield announced at the PaxLair Statehood meeting on May 20, 2008 that he will be on a very long fishing trip during the month of June. Therefore, rather than appointing an acting governor for the entire month, he came up with a rare and interesting Role-playing opportunity for citizens of the PaxLair Statehood. This opportunity will run from May 27 to July 1, 2008.

Each week at the end of the regular Tuesday PaxLair meetings, a new governor will be appointed for one week by the last acting governor. Here is how it will work.

1. At the PaxLair meeting on May 27, 2008, Governor Winfield will run the meeting as usual. At the end, he will appoint someone from the audience as acting governor. This someone will be a volunteer willing to take on the reigns of being governor for the week.

2. At the next PaxLair meeting on June 3, that acting governor will run the PaxLair Statehood meeting as his or her final duty. Then appoint a new acting governor from the audience for the next week.

3. And so on, through July 1. On July 1, the governorship will be transfered back to Governor Winfield.

Here are more notes about this opportunity.

1. There are no elections for acting governor. The mayors of the cities of the Statehood will ensure acting governor appointments go smoothly and judiciously.

2. If an acting governor from the citizenry is unable to be appointed, one of the mayors of the cities will be appointed as acting governor for that week. This could happen if there is no one willing to volunteer.

3. The acting governor has authorities of the governor's position as follows. (Can be a "he" or "she" in the following).

  • He does not have law-making authority.
  • He has decree-making authority, but the decree is only good for the week he is the acting governor.
  • Decrees must be lawful.
  • Any potentially unlawful acts are subject to a hearing by acting Chief Justice Phoenix of the Statehood.
  • May not enter into any long-term binding treaties.
  • The mayors of Dragons Watch, PaxLair City, and PaxOku have the authority to remove an acting governor or step in at any time if they deem it necessary.

4. The duties of the acting governor are:

  • Minimally, he will choose a location for the next PaxLair Weekly Meeting, announce it, publicize it, and run the meeting. Mayors and other people may help in this regard.
  • May represent the PaxLair Statehood at various events throughout the shard.
  • May decree actions necessary for the preservation and improvement of the Statehood. [This means, role-play the position with others and see what happens.]


This is a Role-playing opportunity. It is a chance to simply have fun being the governor for the week. See how creative you can be. See how you can work with the cities, even spontaneously create some RPing situations. By all means, don't make this "work" for yourself. Just have fun.

PaxLair Alliance - Respectful Comraderie
News Govt - From the Desk of Governor Winfield
Written by Winfield_Pax   
Thursday, 22 May 2008


The PaxLair [mechanical] Alliance has grown once again to be a great community of friends and companions built out of Respect for one another.  This is absolutely wonderful.  Any time in the Realm, people in the PaxLair Alliance on Chesapeake can use the [Alliance Chat System] to quickly reach people.

Many guilds are in the PaxLair Alliance.  They are currently:

PaxOku Citizens
PaxOku Crafters Society
PaxLair City Felucca
The Citizens of Historic Dragons Watch
Museum of the Virtues
Whispering Rose Radio
Drunken Friars
PaxLair Reporters
North PaxLair Pole
PaxOku City Honor Guard
The Band
Kijustsu Anei Shame Guard
Paladins of Virtue
Army Of The Dragon
Kingdom Of RivenMyst
Legion of Virtues
Kaar Barashalu
Mages of the Infinity
Knights of Paxlair

If you are in one of these guilds, or your want to join one of these guilds to "connect" yourselves to the PaxLair Community with [real time communication] while in the Realm, just come to one of the Tuesday night PaxLair Meetings or visit the PaxLair Forums.

This [mechanical] alliance list does NOT mean we are not allied with other guilds within the Realm, such as United Tamers of Britannia.  We work around the alliance connection issues and take ourselves one step above [god-given mechanics] by staying in very close contact through "other means" with our total list of friends and allies.

A true alliance is a group of people with similar goals and intentions.  We support each other.  We of PaxLair very much appreciate the friends we've made throughout the years and into the future.

Thank you my friends.  Dragonspeed on your quests within the Realm.  See you in the Realm.

Winfield, Governor of PaxLair Statehood

May 22, 2008 - PaxLair Statehood

The last article published on the was the slide show about the 10th Anniversary of PaxLair.  Since then, PaxLair Statehood and its cities of Dragons Watch, PaxLair City, and PaxOku have indeed been very active!  The record of activity has been taking place in a few places.  The Statehood recommends you wander to:

There is a LOT going on that you can read about in the above locations.  This PaxLair Site will be updated with information in concert with a project called UO Community Wiki.  UOCWiki is being designed to service multiple shards and many player-guilds and communities for encyclopedia style recording of history and information.  See the UOCWiki Forum for more information. 

Also rest assured that nearly any activity in PaxLair is being recorded through journals and "screen shots".  Scholars and historians have plenty of material to record in the future about PaxLair and its cities.
