PaxLair 13th Anniversary Events Schedule

PaxLair, Chesapeake (PaxLair Times) – January 12, 2011 – by Winfield – The 13th Anniversary of PaxLair will be held January 15-19, 2011 in a number of places on Chesapeake.  Over the course of 5 days, events will take people to all the facets starting with a huge voyage at sea, continuing on to a  unique historical tour, games and tournaments, mazes, … and finishing with a Statehood Dinner for all to feast.  There are 13 events in total!  Everyone can participate in something.  Gates will be cast from New Haven Bank for each event.  Come out and join the fun … perhaps see some old veterans you’ve not seen for years … and even win a few prizes and learn some history!  Dragonspeed!!

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 across Felucca, Tokuno, and Trammel: PaxLair City, Dragons Watch, PaxOku, and Nidaros.  PaxLair also has a great Alliance with three more fantastic cities: Gyldenfeld, Pitmuck, and Arylsan. 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.

To help you get to the events: 

  • Gates are provided at the New Haven Bank, Trammel before each event.
  • The Tea House in PaxOku, Homare-jima, Tokuno has runes for the events for the day below the Message Board.  From Homare-jima Moongate, go NE to the end of buildings on the road (Monks Crossing). Tea House is on the left side.
