It’s been much too long since I’ve chronicled here. Since mulling over adding some attractions to Caledon Sound, I was curious as to the subject–what games do Caledonians play? I set out to find some locations with regular or ongoing activities.
The first location I visited is high over Caledon Prime. Every Friday night, Duke AV Parabola and crew host Primtionary, a game where players build “clues” to the titles of books, movies, events, etc. (Think charades but with prims instead of gestures.)

For those who like exploring and shop style hunts, they can fly a few sims south of Caledon Prime to find the Caledon Quest in Caledon Oxbridge University. Questers start off in the Hall of Caledon on the Oxbridge campus, but quickly find themselves following clues to locations all over the nation, ending up in the skies over Middlesea dodging air kraken.

Not far from the Oxbridge campus, in Oxbridge Village, the Oxbridge Fencing Club caters to those who want to hone their swashbuckling skills. Using the En Garde
gaming system, mentors and champions help beginners learn the finer skills of the game while working their way up the ranks in the En Garde
system. The Club also has an in-world group to arrange tourneys and team activities.

You’ll need firepower more than sword skills in the skies below Middlesea’s Iron Cloud. Kraken hunting has become infamous in the sim. Kill enough kraken and your name will appear on the leader board in the Iron Cloud lobby. (The sim has avatar flight turned off, so vehicle flight is required–may want to bring a partner to navigate the skies while you blast a few tentacled critters from the aethers.)

Finally, for those who prefer a more leisurely pursuit, full of pets and prizes, there are multiple locations in Caledon that offer 7Seas Fishing
. To catch best fish and custom prizes, you’ll need a pro rod and bait–these are usually available at vendors at the fishing sites. I have fishing set up in both Caledon Sound
and Caledon Speirling at Tempest’s Point
. Kitiwickshire Fishing Supply
is also listed on the 7Seas website as having customs (in this case, a Jaeger Duck!), but there are many unlisted locations–just wander around and you’ll probably find some fishing holes.
