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.

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.

Governor Orders Care and Cure for Mayor Gareth of PaxOku Print
Written by Winfield_Pax   
Tuesday, 08 January 2008


Governor Winfield issued an order at the PaxLair Statehood Meeting on January 8, 2008 enlisting the support of three people to help diagnose and cure Mayor Gareth's illness.  These people were CaT, Neira, and Elaina.  He had this to say:

There's been some things happening in PaxOku lately. We all heard about Mayor Gareth being ill and I did see him briefly the next day. Gareth was pretty incoherent and his Supreme Chancellor Mula would not let me stay long. I am concerned for Mayor Gareth's health. He apparently cast the Fountain of Youth spell that backfired and now he is aging rapidly. He gave broad law-making powers to Supreme Chancellor Mula for PaxOku. And that is Mayor Gareth's right to do so as long PaxOku Laws do not conflict with PaxLair Statehood laws.


Gareth is a Mayor of our Statehood for one of our cities. He has sworn an oath to me and thus we are bonded together. I am accountable for his well-being and his abilities to be PaxOku's mayor.

So, I talked to various people last night and have a plan.  I'd like CaT to be a guardian to care for Mayor Gareth's well-being. And at her disposal is a balanced team of two people.  Neira is a healer and also a necromancer. She can mend souls. Elaina is a cleric who has wisdom beyond ages of time.

Neira, the healer, has deep reflections in magic of life and nature. She can use both to heal body and soul. Elaina, the cleric, is as old as the Realm where she has prayed, meditated, and laid hands on others to help them understand their paths of ill. Neira and Elaina are balanced, like our Statehood is. We have Harmony and Balance to help Gareth. Neira, as a necromancer, follows the darker arts, while Elaina is a paladin following the paths of Virtues.

Therefore, my order as Governor of our Statehood is CaT will find Gareth and bring him to a place of her choosing to allow Neira and Elaina to diagnose him and find out how to cure him. I know there are ancient arts that can reverse the effects of an ill-cast Fountain of Youth spell, but I do not recall the details. Those details will need to be found once more.

So these three have my wishes to find him, protect him, and cure him.

Based on some questions from the audience, Governor Winfield also said if Mula refused or did not cooperate in helping Mayor Gareth into CaT's care, then Mula could be taken into custody and brought before Chief Justice Kathleen.  In other words, Governor Winfield has ordered Mula to cooperate.  He went on to say that CaT has PaxLair Statehood resources at her disposal to aid her in finding, retrieving, and caring for Gareth.
