PaxLair 16th Anniversary: Day 3

Shrine of Sobriety, Trammel, Chesapeake (PaxLair Times) – January 17, 2014 – by Ashlynn – The anniversary is always an exciting time. When I began the night I was simply expecting darts and snake hunting, but what I got was delicious spectacle on the island of Pitmuck.

The Anniversary Banana Darts Mystery Competition

dartsannyListed as a mystery event this was actually less of a mystery than first envisaged. Pictured as a grand quest or awe inspiring entertainment it turns out there’s only so much that fits into a 45 minute gap. So a darts contest it was!

The rules were pretty simple. Contestants would be competing for a GRAND PRIZE in a locked wooden box. The game was split into two rounds and each round a contestant would throw three darts, followed by answering a question for the chance to double their score. The person with the highest score after two rounds would win the prize!

In the end Lady Brooke took the star prize with the results as follows:

  • Brooke: 82 points
  • Sweet Tart: 71 points
  • Grimlar Mithrax: 61 points
  • Carl Jr: 50 points
  • Squirt: 38 points
  • Nanoc: 25 points
  • Winfield: 7 points

Hunting the Worst Kind of Snakes

Raids against Medusa’s lair followed a good game of darts. Because there is no better way to continue a fun night than buy breaking into the lair of a reclusive lady, murdering all her servants, and stealing all her things.

And that is precisely what we did! It appears that she took some issue with our presence and attempted to cut us down with arrows from her bow. Still her efforts to defend her home from violent intruders proved in vain and we left with a few fancy trinkets for our trouble.

I believe some consider our actions as “guarding the path of virtue”. I’m not so sure.

A Call to Arms!

I decided to go along and observe events unfold and it was indeed an attack – massed ranks of orcs had landed on the shore and were rampaging through the woods in the middle of the island.

It appears the force was lead by a black winged humanoid but despite their numbers and the leader’s corrosive acid attacks they were soon fought back and the town was saved from being razed to the ground.

Perhaps this is the beginning of a longer campaign. Perhaps more goblins will be kidnapped over the coming months. Time will tell!
