Photos of 2018 Lysts on the Lake, by Winfield of PaxLair

I, Winfield, went to Lysts on the Lake for my first time this year (2018). I will DEFINITELY be there in 2019! This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I want another.

I got there early as people were still setting up (I sneaked in offering I was just a poor fisherman).

Horses, the horses!  They were so gorgeous! Strong, spirited, ready for action!

Squires and Knights getting ready, practicing, preparing their armour. Fabulous!

I was lost in another time, another era, where chivalry reigned and people walked and talked with dignity and respect.  No, they were not play-acting or role-playing.  I met real professionals in the art of Jousting.  Huzzah!

As I wandered around, I talked with anyone I could. I took many pictures.  By the end of the event two days later, I felt I had made 25 new friends!  And I shall see them again next year!

My friends, I am certain 2019 Lysts on the Lake will be magical.  It will be held April 26-28, 2019.  We can’t stay on Lord British’s property that weekend, but we can stay in hotels nearby. Evenings are pretty open after the Jousting, so we can do a lot that weekend.

I look forward to seeing everyone in April at the Lysts! Huzzah!

Welcome! Glad to see you here! It's great to be here! Let's plan some events, eh!?

Hail everyone, I’m Jerry Thompson … most of you know me as Winfield of PaxLair from Ultima Online (Chesapeake Shard since 1997) and Shroud of the Avatar (since 2013 Kickstarter and PaxLair Player Owned Town).

I am online with a new site to help anchor events that I’m planning, helping execute, or extremely interested in attending or promoting.  I might also write some blog articles here of varying interests.

You can read more generalities about this new site here.

I’m really passionate about people working and playing together with respect and civility.

I’m currently planning the content and schedule for SOTACON Austin 2018 along with the King’s Dinner and Richard Garriott’s 10th Anniversary Space Launch Lunch. I also help promote the Baron’s Men Theater Troupe and their plays at Richard Garriott’s Curtain Theater.

So let’s have some gatherings!
