    Building PaxLair Player Town - Release 9

    PaxLair Player Town in Release 9
    August 21-24, 2014​
    We are building PaxLair ("Peace Place") Player Town in Release 9 like we did in R8, R7, R6, and R5. We are planning to build in Valemark again.​


    Planned Events: Time Zone Converter #1 and Time Zone Converter #2 - Central U.S. Time (CDT) is GMT-5 hours. (which is BST (London)-6 hours right now).

    Also see Avatars Circle Community Events calendar.

    Schedule (see the end of this post for descriptions about the events that don't have Links):
    • Thursday, August 21
      • 6 PM CDT - PaxLair Gathering at entrance to Valemark
    • Friday, August 22
      • 6 PM CDT - PaxLair Gathering at entrance to Valemark
    • Saturday, August 23
      • 3 PM CDT - Welcome Quest - Starting at The Bear Tavern
      • 6 PM CDT - PaxLair Gathering at entrance to Valemark
    • Sunday, August 24
      • 4 AM CDT - PaxLair Gathering at entrance to Valemark
      • 2 PM CDT - PaxLair IMPROV Plays (matinee) at Grand Theater in Valemark - Curtain up at 2:30 PM
      • 6 PM CDT - PaxLair Town Meeting at Town Pub in Valemark
      • 6:45 PM CDT - PaxLair IMPROV Plays at Grand Theater in Valemark - Curtain up at 7:00 PM CDT
    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.

    I am creating a PM to several people, you included, to help us get set up in R9. I think this will be another great session for Building PaxLair and more! There's a lot we are doing within PaxLair and across the Realm too.

    We will try not to do too many things we've done before... so we want to stretch our legs and try more new things given our limited time. We need to continue to think creatively and how to involved more people in the communities. Maybe we will do a Parade in Owl's Head? But I don't think we have Fireworks.

    We will expand upon our last Theatrical play.

    Maybe we can plan a raid on Vengeance ... just to test their abilities and ours (as we are friends after all).

    For housing, we need the usual setups like the great 3-D art, grand mazes in Valemark (sure why not, stress the limits again *smiles*), Darkstarr Temple, Lord British Tower, Guard Camp, Grand Theater and Town Pub area (I have this one to work on), Crafting Pavilions, Town Hall, Town Library again as we will hopefully get library books in R10/11, and more!

    I captured a lot of video and screenshots from R8 that I have not published yet. The past month has been tough for me (time-wise). I think between R9 and R10 we will be able to get some back-log done for PaxLair and do more planning for R10. I want to work with more people in the community at large between the releases on some projects for PaxLair since our ideas, articles, and conversations don't just happen at/around the Releases. The Releases offer a time to take risks and try new things within the community and with our avatars too.

    I'm excited about R9 and more excited about new things we will all do together!

    Alright, I tried Google Translation ... this is fun ... English to German ...

    Ich erstelle eine PM an mehrere Personen, die Sie aufgenommen, um uns zu helfen in R9 gesetzt bekommen. Ich denke, das wird eine weitere große Sitzung für Gebäude PaxLair und mehr sein! Es gibt eine Menge, was wir innerhalb PaxLair und im ganzen Reich zu tun.

    Wir werden versuchen, nicht zu viele Dinge, die wir getan haben, bevor zu tun ... so dass wir, um uns die Beine und versuchen mehr neue Dinge angesichts unserer begrenzten Zeit möchten. Wir müssen weiter, kreativ zu denken und wie man beteiligt, mehr Menschen in den Gemeinden. Vielleicht werden wir eine Parade in Eulenkopf zu tun? Aber ich glaube nicht, dass wir ein Feuerwerk.

    Wir werden auf unserem letzten Theaterstück zu erweitern.

    Vielleicht können wir einen Überfall auf Rache zu planen ... nur um ihre Fähigkeiten zu testen und uns (wie wir sind Freunde, nachdem alle).

    Für den Wohnungsbau, müssen wir die üblichen Setups wie der große 3-D-Technik, große Labyrinthe in Valemark (sicher, warum nicht, betonen die Grenzen wieder * lächelt *), Darkstarr Tempel, Lord British Turm, Wach Camp, Grand Theater und Stadt Pub Bereich (Ich habe diese ein, um auf der Arbeit), Crafting Pavilions, Rathaus, Stadtbibliothek wieder als wir hoffentlich in R10 / 11, und mehr zu erhalten Bücher aus der Bibliothek!

    Ich nahm eine Menge von Video und Screenshots von R8, dass ich noch nicht veröffentlicht. Der vergangene Monat war für mich hart (zeitweise ). Ich denke, zwischen R9 und R10 werden wir in der Lage, etwas zurück-Protokoll für PaxLair zu erledigen und mehr tun Planung für R10. Ich will mit mehr Menschen in der Gemeinschaft zu groß zwischen den Releases auf einigen Projekten für PaxLair da unsere Ideen, Artikel und Gespräche funktionieren nicht nur an geschehen / rund um die Veröffentlichungen. Die Veröffentlichungen bieten eine Zeit, Risiken einzugehen und neue Dinge auszuprobieren innerhalb der Gemeinschaft und mit unseren Avataren zu.

    Ich bin begeistert über R9 und mehr begeistert über neue Dinge, die wir alle gemeinsam tun!

    I cannot vouch for it translating correctly! Blame Google please. https://translate.google.com

    Yes, this is funny.

    :D
    Vielen Dank Winfield, hier im Forum komme ich ja gut klar, nur ingame nicht.
    Das heißt ich kann in game fast gar nicht antworten weil ich viel zu lange brauche um zu antworten.
    Ich nutze auch google translate.

    Many thanks Winfield, here in the forum I'm coming along well, only not ingame.
    That means I almost can not reply because I need too long to reply in game.
    I also use google translate.

    I think we need a real-time Language Translator added to Shroud of the Avatar!! As fast as Google translates. You pick your language, you type in it through the SotA Chat Window line, hit Enter -- it translates into whatever each received has set for their language. (maybe with a ** saying the person is using a translator to get to your language).

    Ich denke, wir brauchen eine Echtzeit-Übersetzer, um Grabtuch von der Avatar hinzugefügt !! So schnell wie Google übersetzt. Sie wählen Ihre Sprache, in ihr durch SOTA Chat-Fenster Zeile eingeben Sie, drücken Sie Enter - in das, was sie jeweils erhalten hat für ihre Sprache eingestellt übersetzt. (vielleicht mit ein ** sagen, die Person wird mit einem Übersetzer, Ihre Sprache zu erhalten).

    Je pense que nous avons besoin en temps réel Language Translator ajouté à Voile de l'Avatar !! Aussi vite que Google traduit. Vous choisissez votre langue, vous tapez à travers la ligne Sota la fenêtre de conversation, appuyez sur Entrée - elle se traduit par ce que chaque reçu a fixé pour leur langue. (peut-être avec un ** dire la personne utilise un traducteur pour accéder à votre langue).

    Yes, that would be great, but it probably would end up being another stretch goal :(

    As a most definite noob to SOTA (pledged just before R8), how do I find you guys in game and hook up. I have enough trouble converting the time to GMT (Brit here :)) and also I have, so far, found no map function in the game so I run about aimlessly until I move from one zone to another.

    Any advice/help gratefully accpeted.

    Welcome to the jungle... The most easy way to find someone is to write /zone [nickname]. (Spain here)

    There normally you have a portal to Ardoris. But to meet people the most easy way is to go Owl's Head or to zone them. It¡s not difficult to find people.

    It is when you have just joined up & do not know either the commands to get some where or the world (with no map) to navigate.

    Please don't take any of my comments as negative (I'm an old Ultima & UO player) but to drop in at R8/R9 it's one hell of a learning curve to get places or find players (IMO).
