    Building PaxLair Player Town - Release 10

    PaxLair Player Town in Release 10
    September 25-28, 2014

    We are building PaxLair ("Peace Place") Player Town in Release 10 like we did in R9, R8, R7, R6, and R5. We are planning to build in Valemark again.​

    PaxLair is building new facilities this release, to include a Cafe, Embassy Row Houses, and a Courthouse.

    A big goal is to meet more player towns being created and more people, groups and guilds with ideas for establishments.

    Planned Events: Please see Avatars Circle Community Events calendar for all the planned events, including PaxLair. The calendar was improved to include several other time zones and our specific event times tend to change. So PLEASE use the Avatars Circle Calendar.

    PaxLair will:
    • hold some PaxLair Gatherings
    • be involved in the Welcome Quest
    • hold a Court Trial
    • conduct the Teachings of Chaos by Amber Raine
    • host a Sunday All-Player Towns Gathering in PaxLair for any and all player town leaders/citizens to attend and tell others about their towns.
    General Information:

    PaxLair is an OPEN community for people, guilds, establishments, and wanderers. PaxLair will be a metropolis sized Player Owned Town when SotA is released to the public. We are building PaxLair using our experiences with PaxLair in Old Britannia (Ultima Online) since 1998 (and still running). We are also using new ideas and meeting new people. These pre-Alpha releases help us get to know people, try out ideas, see what works and does not work, and have fun.

    This thread is for our journal of activities/progress, questions and answers, and interaction with anyone and everyone. We want to meet our neighbors, hold some events, wander on adventures, and get to know each other in this new realm.

    So please look for us. Most existing PaxLair citizens will have a last name of Pax or PaxLair, but in the final release, we will probably not have such last names.

    Remember, we are building a town... not a guild. Many people and guilds can be in PaxLair.

    Location: We are building PaxLair in Valemark again. We hope many will join us!​

    Are all the spots in PaxLair spoken for, once we launch for real?

    Is everyone automatically in the same instance? Or do I need to zone to someone?
    Edit - Never mind, I'm in the right instance.

    That's a huge number of images. You can see the whole trial! I like Google Drive. Do you use some sort of auto-screen shot system, every 30 seconds?

    Another question... could the images be batch processed to JPG format (smaller file size for faster download on 2 Mbps links)? (I do not ask you to re-do any of the gallery you uploaded; maybe an idea for the future though.) And how long will your gallery be kept online? Should I copy out the images I want to keep and can I re-host a few?

    Well done! Thanks!

    Thanks Winfield! I was not using any auto-screen shot program, just the F11 screenshot feature in the game.

    I have plenty of space on Google Drive right now, so I will leave the gallery up indefinitely. I may take it down in a few months if space gets low.

    You are welcome to do anything you want with the images.

    I've now converted the images to .jpg also for faster download.
    The converted images are here:
