Due to the unusual nature of Caliborn's session of Sburb, he does not have one planet in his session designated for him at first. He, instead, is given 15 minor planets to conquer, which only are succeeded by his true planet after their complete destruction. Whether these planets have proper Land titles or not remains unaddressed.
Over the course of his quest, Caliborn had to conquer these planets in order to unlock the 14 leprechaun minions that would later become known as the Felt. Conquering the planets involved defeating any resistance until he would come across the powerful underling that ruled the planet. After defeating the underling, Caliborn could venture to each planet's core to retrieve a conveniently-shaped bomb. He would then have to resurface and place the bomb in a specific location to knock the planet out of orbit and into the black hole at the center of his session, as well as escape to the next planet, before it detonated.
In the doomed timeline where Calliope predominated and played the game instead, she also had the same quest. However, the session was unwinnable for her as the Muse of Space, Caliborn as the Lord of Time was the only one who could win. Instead of attempting it, she ascended to God Tier and spoke to Echidna (who replaced Yalbaboath) and, when offered The Choice, chose death.

During Caliborn's entry, his sprite turned into a black hole and sucked his home planet into the session with him to serve as a starting point. While not a proper session planet, upon entry the denizen Yaldabaoth took up residence in the core of the planet, where Caliborn would have to reach him to allow him to take The Choice and unlock his true quest for his session. It was also the location of a strange computer and broadcast tower for which displayed the current act and narration on the page and allowed Caliborn to converse with the narrator. During the course of his quest, Caliborn has unlocked
After finally encountering Yaldabaoth, Caliborn made The Choice to continue towards his true planet. This caused Skaia to solidify and explode into a black hole, an event known as the First Break. Skaia released the fifteen planets that Caliborn was to conquer in the process, though three were unable to settle into orbit in time and were sucked into the black hole.

Yet another respect in which Caliborn's planet is unique is that it has a command station on it , likely due to previously being a host planet of the game. It's unclear, however, where the Lil Cal-shaped station came from, although Andrew Hussie appears to have played some part in stocking it.

Seventh, eleventh, and fourteenth planetsEdit
When the First Break occurred, these three planets were pulled into the black hole produced by Skaia's remains. As such, Caliborn never visited or conquered these planets. The planets' respective leprechauns were unlocked after destroying the land that would have preceded them. The planets respectively had a maroon, red and white striped, and green and white striped color scheme matching Crowbar, Matchsticks, and Quarters's hats respectively.
This is connected to Crowbar, Matchsticks, and Quarters' status as the three members of the Felt who were already dead by the start of the intermission.
- While normal Sburb sessions resemble a game of chess, Caliborn's session is instead literally and symbolically a vast game of pool. Caliborn, as the cue stick, conquers the appropriately-colored planets and uses cue ball-shaped bombs as a means of moving them into the pocket-like black hole. Like a normal session however, Jack Noir and his underlings remain as a playing-card themed "wildcard" element.
- The fact that Caliborn and Earth entered his session via a black hole brings to mind the image of a ball being pocketed as well. If pre-transformation Earth represents a cue ball, it could represent a Scratch.
- By virtue of his life on Earth after completing his game, the exile terminal he inhabits, and his status as a character who gives commands to other players, Caliborn is effectively an exile as well as a player. This may be part of the punishment he faces for initiating a single-player session.
- The pool ball themed planets and black hole pocket may be a reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, in which, it is mentioned that a solar system was once used for playing pool.
