Caledon Perenelle Changes Hands

The rumor mill had rumblings that Duke Ambiant Kukulkan and Duchess Anna Darwinian (somehow that makes them sound married...disabuse yourselves of the notion) had divested themselves of Perenelle, so I went to investigate.

Indeeed, the new owners of Dame Ordinal's former land are Miss Kitsuko Pelazzi and Miss Alana Steamweaver, the new Duchesses of Perenelle. The land itself has few structures upon it, and even fewer clues as to what might happen with it.

I was very fortunate to meet Miss Pelazzi when I called unannounced. (Shockingly bad manners, I realize. If you dealt with the criminal element as often as I do, you, too, would find it advantageous to drop in unannounced.) Her Grace noted that the enormous structure below is a lecture hall, designed for social scientists and others researching SL. Note its chairs arranged in a circle and mysterious writing on the large set of doors (second photo below).

Some residential buildings are also in evidence.

I will make a note to revisit Perenelle in the not-too-distant future to see what else may be occurring there.

Wow, lovely screen shots. I had no idea this existed and will have to search to go see it my self. Thank you!

I'm glad you enjoyed them. No doubt even more sites of interest have appeared since my last trip, so do pay a personal visit!

I've seen the name Anna Darwinian recently - in St Helens: http://www.flickr.com/photos/headburroantfarm/4245949312/

I was chatting to someone recently who expressed the view that I may be an alt returning to the steamlands - I can assure anyone who might think this that I'm not (hell, check out my blog back to the start) so I really don't know how the major steamy players are - my knowledge of such people and their affairs ended in mid-2007 after a couple of months of reading some Caledon blogs. Since then, nada - i know nothing and no one :)

Miss Darwinian is a relatively recent arrival in the steamlands (at least under that name :) ), but has established a presence in both Caledon and Winterfell - okay, not really Steamland, but a kindred spirit - with her shops selling Steampunk merchandise.

I had to laugh at the suggestion you were an alt and were merely returning to the Steamlands. Your blog does indeed go back a ways!
