    Hail there mystarr! Glad to see you! We are still getting organized in PaxLair as people arrive, move around, enjoy the scenery and do some fishing (well more than just fishing). We are taking many of our experiences from UO in PaxLair and jump-starting building a City in SotA. You can imagine what that can be like (chancellors, guilds, events, speeches, meetings, adventures, combat, crafting, protecting the areas, etc.).

    We are also in UO with weekly meetings every Tuesday at 9 PM EDT and daily/weekly adventures.

    Great to see you! Yes, stop by. We also have a discord server:

    Wow, we have not had much to say here recently! Well, lots of things have been and are going on.

    I just announced PaxLair is going from a Ruined phase to a Settler Phase. Here's what I said on my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/winfield.paxlair)

    PaxLair in Shroud of the Avatar is now proceeding from a Ruined phase to a Settler phase. What does this mean? Well, people are settling into the "downtown" area of the PaxLair Player Owned Town (POT) in the game (once a lot of great ruins), creating castle walls, and setting up crafters, markets, a town hall, and more. @Sean Silverfoot, the PaxLair City Manager and Cambria Stormlin lead the development.

    What do I do as Governor of PaxLair? Oh, I fish a bit and watch PaxLair grow. Seriously, we all work together as a team with common interests where anyone can participate no matter what guild, what town, what ability. I thank so many great people who embrace the ideas and ideals of PaxLair as we journey together in Shroud of the Avatar.

    Thanks everyone!

    Next meeting is JUNE 10th, Not MAY. Winfield has been out to sea too long and is suffering from an overindulgence of medicinal rum.

    FIELD NEWS REPORT:

    Title: PaxLair under Siege
    Reported by: Winfield
    Date: November 12, 515 PC ((June 10, 2017))

    PAXLAIR -- Cabalist Engineers hurled red hot flaming stones all afternoon at the gates of PaxLair. Visiting merchants had to find other ways into the city through other boroughs, such as Lockbrier and Serenity Isle. Why the city was being sieged is still unknown since PaxLair is a neutral peaceful city. Mercenaries came to defend PaxLair and attempted to break the siege. Few citizens were able to fight the attackers due to recent low supplies of weapons at the armory. After several hours, just as swiftly as the cabalists came, they suddenly left taking their trebuchets with them.

    "We didn't know what to do," said one man with a bloodied arm from the attack. "We lacked the resources and our army was out somewhere in training. We feel a bit defenseless, yet we know our gates are strong and will always hold. It does disrupt our flow of commercial goods though straining and already stressed economy. I think this problem will be a major point of discussion at the next city meeting."

    After the siege dissipated, healers tended to the wounded. Fortunately, there were no deaths. Citizens remained vigilant into the evening in case the Cabalists returned.
