Hibernia on the Skids blog: An evening of fencing among the snow flurries November 26, 2007

Posted by sallehon in Video game.

It’s fun how a small affair in Caledon, perhaps with two or three people involved at start, can rapidly blossom into a sociable evening, with many people dropping in and out. So it was last evening, when I broke out the NEW UPDATE to the En Garde fencing system. This version establishes teams, and allows inter-team competition throughout Second Life. As you might have guessed, I’ve grown quite taken with the system, even though I am by no means an expert.

Red Rose of Caledon: Making Improvements Thanks to My Fencing Instructors and a Little Exercise

“….I came in world last night fully intending to get the Loch more prepared for the St. Andrew’s Day festivities. And I accomplished many of the tasks: the small Victorian Skating Rink is installed and fully operational, the ground has been covered with more snow and the snow fall continues, several more trees were planted, and the sky arena is made ready for the Tournament. There are still things on the list, of course, but it will all get done by Friday morning so that our guests will be able to fully enjoy the celebration.

Speaking of the Tournament, we now have eight (8) entrants, which is very exciting. I spoke with Sir Telemachus briefly last evening (more on that in a bit) and he will be creating the matches very soon. We have entrants from 5 of the Duchys thus far. If others contact us with fighters to send forward, then we may need to do a little adjustment on the schedule…or set time limits for each round. Clan bragging rights are at stake here – all in the name of good fun – so we want to make sure all Duchys who wish to be represented are able to send forward a champion. Sir Tele will take good care with this as he works on the schedule.
As I was watching the snow fall, I received a call on my private line letting me know that there were plenty of opportunities for some fencing practice Upstairs. I quickly headed over to find several members of our fencing team practicing. Miss Bryndal Ellison, Miss Hermoine Pennyfeather, Sir Amplebeak Tinlegs, and Colonel Hotspur O’Toole.

Miss Ellison was gracious enough to send me the team uniform upon my arrival, and after she finished her close match with Sir Amplebeak, she allowed me to practice with her…..”

Top of the heap!
I’m happy to report the following development…

Caledon Foiled Again, one of the two Caledon based fencing teams, leads all of SL in En Garde team fencing. Caledon Sabers, the other Caledon based team, is only five back in the standings!

Vivat, Caledonia!!!
