Opening Ceremonies for PaxLair 14th Anniversary a great success

PaxLair City, Felucca, Chesapeake (PaxLair Times) – January 15, 2012 – by Winfield – Precisely at the stroke of 8 PM ET, Governor Winfield welcomed people across the Realm to PaxLair’s 14th Anniversary.

Standing atop the historical PaxLair Mage Tower, he said:

Welcome everyone to PaxLair’s 14th Anniversary!!

I’m Governor Winfield, leader of the PaxLair Statehood. Good evening everyone!

As most of you know, our Statehood consists of several cities. 4 cities are part of the Statehood and 3 others are allied. The Statehood has PaxLair City, Dragons Watch, PaxOku and Nidaros. Allied are Gyldenfeld, Pitmuck, and Aryslan. Together, our 7 cities form a very strong Alliance.

14 years ago this week — PaxLair was formed by The Band with the creation of this tower and several other buildings in this meadow. Each year we’ve met during this week to celebrate all that has happened and that will happen. We celebrate 14 years of people coming and going and coming back again. PaxLair and our cities are testimonies to how dedicated people can be to this Realm and our friends far and wide.

Tonight, we start our 14th Anniversary Celebration! It lasts 5 days ending on Thursday evening. At the end we will have a grand Dinner. I will announce the location for the Dinner later this week. Between then and now, there are plenty of events to attend. The full schedule is in the PaxLair Times and on the news Forums. You can reach us by speaking within our alliance chat, or through our PaxLair Chat Channel at any time.

Tonight is the House of Commons meeting in Britain by the EMs and after that a Grand Adventure of peril and danger. We also have two quests and a contest running this week.

First, we have a PaxLair quest which starts on this tower roof. You just have to “tip” Commander Thaddeus over there with some gold and he will tell you how to get started. The quest will take you around PaxLair to talk to several barkeeps. A book there explains how to go on this quest. I won’t give Thaddeus the tip message until later tonight, so that you can participate in the PaxLair quest at your own pace, and without the nearby help of others. If you succeed in the quest before Thursday’s Dinner, you will be recognized when you come to the Dinner.

Second, Ashlynn has a quest which she can speak about now. It will be announced at tomorrow night’s event.

Third, Lenora has a feature literary contest to tell us about. Lenora?

Lenora announced the PaxLair Mage Tower Library’s Literary Contest.  Books can be written and submitted in the following categories:

    • Most Humorous Tale
    • Creativity Award
    • Best Historical Contribution
    • Reader’s Choice
    • Best Song Composition

There will also be an Overall Grand Prize winner.  For the Reader’s Choice Award, the submitted books will be placed in the PaxLair Mage Tower library so everyone can read them and vote via a box or mailbox to be placed in the Library.  The PaxLair Mage Tower Library is located in PaxLair City inside the Mage Tower on the 3rd floor.  It is open to the public.

The awards will be announced and prizes handed out at the Thursday PaxLair Anniversary Dinner.

After this business, several people came up and addressed the audience.  Miss Watson, the Emissary to the Crown of the Lost Souls of Kijustsu Anei [LOST] congratulated PaxLair on their 14th Anniversary.  Wat the Tyler from the Circle of Elders of the Royal Britannian Guards [RBG] also gave congratulations and gifts of five scrolls of alacrity.

Governor Winfield ended the opening ceremonies with a burst of fireworks as the people then went to the EM’s Hall of Commons Meeting and then on to the Grand Adventure of PaxLair later in the evening.

Later in the evening, Governor Winfield activated the PaxLair Quest starting with Thaddeus the Commander, as mentioned in his speech.  Tip Thaddeus to follow the quest. The quest is best done individually at any time before Thursday’s Dinner.
