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.

Valemark lot map (drawn by Ashlynn) Descriptions of Events on the Schedule: PaxLair Gathering - A simple Meet and Greet event to see and learn more about PaxLair and to meet other people too. Starts at the entrance to Valemark. Includes a description of what PaxLair is as a player town and how and why it is being created. This is a good time to learn a bit, ask questions, and get to know people. Takes you on a short tour through the town's houses as currently built and decorated. For repeat visitors, this is always a good time to relax, talk to the PaxLair people and friends, and maybe even learn a few more things. Repeats a few times per day so people across the "world" can attend. House Decorations Tours - A casual walk across The Hidden Vale to see houses of interesting design and decorations. This is not a contest, just a stroll. This event could last an hour or a lot longer depending on what places are on the list to see. People may come and go from this event at any time. Starts at the entrance to Valemark. To join during the tour, just /zone Winfield PaxLair Will go through some housing in PaxLair (Valemark) first, then head to other towns.

To have your house on the tour list, just reach Winfield PaxLair in R8, or send a Conversation (PM) here on these forums to Winfield. PaxLair Town Meeting - Town Hall - An official PaxLair Town Meeting - everyone is invited to attend and participate. Starts at the Town Hall in PaxLair (Valemark) - lot # TBD.
