Perenelle and Queen Victoria Harbour

When Dame Ordinal decided to sell Caledon Perenelle, people wondered whether this northern outpost of the Empiah might disappear under the sea. Fortunately, the area changed hands almost immediately, being purchased by Mr. Ambiant Kukulcan, erstwhile Duke of Glamorgan, Miss Anna Darwinian, and Mr. Peter2 Veliz. They began building almost immediately, transforming the meteor-pocked island into the slightly piratical Steampunk area it is today.

Other parts of the area as more rustic and private.

The harbor on the southeast side has more shops, including Amazing Steam, Miss Darwinian's Caldon Adventures Store, Veliz Horologists, and Mr. Veliz's Chandeliers and Lighting.

I assume that when they warn of pirates, they speak not of the prices in the stores!

I hadn't even realised Dame Ordinal has disposed of Perenelle, much less that building had occurred. I shall have to investigate soon.

The good lady mused about it on Plurk one evening, and it was sold by the next day...and the building took place so quickly one can only imagine that much of it was waiting in a sim-sized warehouse, ready to drop.

Sad, though...after the meteors started falling on Perenelle, I enjoyed resting there, feeling the adreneline surge knowing that one could remove me from this mortal coil. It provided a little perspective about life.
