From the Library: Happy Birthday, Caledon!

Today in Sec­ond Life, the world’s most pop­u­lar and suc­cess­ful meta­verse, we cel­e­brate the third anniver­sary of the Inde­pen­dent State of Cale­don, a unique Steam­punk Vic­to­ri­an region found­ed by The Guvnah, Desmond Shang, exact­ly three years ago today. It’s also where Radio Riel was orig­i­nal­ly estab­lished.

This is how the Cale­don Wiki describes it:

Cale­don is a small, windswept forest­ed coun­try at a tem­per­ate lat­i­tude. Wild crea­tures, coun­try estate life, sights and sounds that were com­mon well over 100 years ago are the hall­mark of the land.

Tech­nol­o­gy is approx­i­mate­ly that of the 19th Cen­tu­ry, though some aston­ish­ing break­throughs have pro­vid­ed for incred­i­ble won­ders. Ground vehi­cles, air­ships, and even a device known as a ‘tele­hub’ are made pos­si­ble through the pow­er of exot­ic mate­r­i­al prop­er­ties and the won­ders of Steam Tech­nol­o­gy.

The gov­ern­ment is an expan­sion­ist monar­chy, sup­port­ed by a strong aris­toc­ra­cy (i.e., res­i­dents).

As Cale­don has grown, it has made con­tact with a num­ber of oth­er nations that share many of her val­ues. Some of these nations now share direct sea pas­sage and have formed a coali­tion known as the Realm of the Ros­es to pro­mote their mutu­al inter­ests.

Join us in today’s cel­e­bra­tions either by vis­it­ing one of sev­er­al events in-world or by tun­ing in to a pro­gramme of suit­ably Celtic music on Radio Riel’s Main Stream.
