The Keeper of Untold Tales

The Keeper of Untold Tales

 

Every story has a Narrator, even the really old ones.

How did they go about making sure each tale ended up having one, even if the stories were untold?

They would force a soul into a scroll, and as the words were written, the soul would alight with the new knowledge. A simple touch would activate the soul into telling the tale written on the fine papers.

As years went on, and less practiced the art of soulbinding, these souls were tied to more and more scrolls. Some would have up to 20 scrolls bounded to them.

In time, as with many things, this was all lost in history. People forgot about the soul bound scrolls, and the tales yet to be told.

The Keepers of the Untold Tales became bitter things. They had given up their eternal happiness for a greater cause, only to be left dusty on a shelf somewhere, forgotten. The bitterness gave them their own power of sorts, to appear without writing on their scrolls. People often mistook them for wraiths or banshees, history having forgotten their true purpose.

They are often seen near forgotten temples, library ruins and dismantled schools.

To look upon them is rather eerie, as they either just stare, or look like they are speaking, but no words every come out.

To lay a Keeper to rest, all you have to do is write a tale on one of their scrolls. When done, hide it in a safe place.

Monday Eyeful – Eye Effects by Birth

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Eye Effects by Birth

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eye effects from Birth. Not many designers make things that augment your eyes, but I really do enjoy the ones I end up randomly finding.

These are from Birth called Glimmer Eye System. You need the base system to be able to use the Eye Effects.

They are priced at L$150 per pack of 2 Effects, with 2 packs to collect. When I say 2 Effects, I mean the Type is the same, but you get one animation that is already coloured, and the other is a tintable version.

I ended up taking Some Gyazo Gifs of the effects, so you can see what they do, as pictures don’t do them justice. Also, it really is much cooler inworld live.

 

Glimmer Eyes by Birth – Standard Effect that comes with the base system

 

100% RFL Charity Spellbook Effect by Birth – Coloured Effect Version

 

100% RFL Charity Firehands Effect by Birth – Coloured Effect Version

The one this I really like about the base system, is there is a BOM set included, so I am actually wearing my own eyes, Shifting Sands, which are what the effects are layered on top of.  The best part about the base system, is you have pupil options. My Shifting Sands eyes are pupiless, so this allows me to change the look of my own creation, adding pupils, changing their size, adding shine type, then putting the effects on top.

This really means you can end up with so many options for eyes in your collection. This system, and it’s addon effects, can really help you make your look unique. I normally start my look with my eyes, and go from there, and now I can really make them the centerpiece of my who ensemble.

Monday Eyeful – Fruit Punch Eyes by Demicorn

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Fruit Punch Eyes by Demicorn

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eyes from Demicorn. This is a new to me store, I am not sure if they were around when I was still inworld before, or just not on my radar, but I found them while doing one of the ever popular weekend sales lists.

These are from Lotus called Fruit Punch Eyes.

They are priced at L$599 per pack of 5, with 3 packs to collect, and the Megapack is L$999. System/BOM, Omega, Catwa and Genus Appliers are included in the pack.

Demicorn Fruit Punch Eyes

I am actually wearing just the system eyes with this head from Dream. The iris is a little large, but I don’t mind the look with this alieneque thing I have going on.

Now, I bought these during Secret Sale Sundays, so they were L$50 for the Megapack at the time. I would suggest if you like the look of these, to come on by the store, get a few gachas, other offerings, see about the quality. Join the subscriber, so you can get notices on other deals. I understand Eye designers are pricing their eyes at about L$100 per applier on average, so when things get bundled, prices go up. I don’t think the price is unfair, but as an eye collector, who buys multiple eyes in a week, from various stores, I like to keep enough money to go around.

This designer is really generous though, and does put things on sale from time to time, so again, click that subscriber.

I am also wearing this really unique skin from Stargazer. I was there recently, checking on the store. I have a list of stores I use to shop at, from before my absence, so over the last month and a half, I have been trying to visit a few here and there, to see if they are still around. Stargazer obviously is, and seems to be doing well!

On my visit I came across a little alcove, which has various discounted deals. This skin was up for L$99 for group members(Free to Join). And while I normally wouldn’t but anything with pink, it was so interesting, I couldn’t pass it up.

It is actually a full on avi pack, more than just a skin. There are 11 face versions, with different body types. The skin also comes in plain pink as well as the faded pink and green. You get eyes, nail appliers, ears, alien head bits, wings and other things??? I might be missing something, but there is a lot in the pack. For L$99, you really can’t go wrong. Fantasy Faire is on the way, and if you don’t normally do something more out there with your skin tones, this is a great way to get started!

Monday Eyeful – Fairytale Eyes by Lotus

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Lotus
This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eyes from Lotus. This is a new to me store, I am not sure if they were around when I was still inworld before, or just not on my radar, but I found them at The Arcade, with this Gacha offer.

These are from Lotus called Fairytale Eyes.

They are priced at L$69 per play, and there is currently no Megapack option. Unrigged Mesh, BOM, Catwa, Lelutka and Genus Appliers are included in the pack.

 LOTUS x THE ARCADE

I feel the eyes are a good size, especially with the trend of squinty eyed mesh heads. The ranges are great, I love options, and all the gachas are similar in the fact that there are a lot of colours.

Lotus makes a lot of gachas, but they do have regular Eye packs, which I think are very reasonably priced. You get around 8-10 eye colours for L$179. Read the vendors as some packs are only for certain heads and eye types.

Right now there is a little sale going on, for how long, I don’t know, but some of the gachas are set to L$20 per play, Two for Unrigged Mesh Eyes and one with Catwa, Lelutka and Unrigged Mesh.There is also some discounted eye packs, if you want to see if you enjoy the eyes, before you start going ham on the store. There are some discounted non eye related gacha things too. Not sure for how long, the notice went out April 4th.

Monday Eyeful – Oculos Eyes by Soul

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Soul

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eyes from Soul. These aren’t new by any means, but sometimes blogging isn’t about showing what is new, but what you truly love. There was also an oops though. I had originally done another shot, using newer eyes, only to find out they were not in the new store at the moment. Haha, I guess that one is on the bck burner until they come out again. So this is the sudden backup post!

These are from Soul called Oculos Eyes.

They are priced at L$199 per pair, or you can grab a Megapack for L$2,999. Unrigged Mesh, System, Omega and Genesis Lab Appliers are included in the pack.

2016_Soul_Oculos_Eyes_AD_ALL

I own about 4 of these, and they are all lovely and well made.

I am also wearing another not new item, but one I’ve enjoyed often in the past, which is this skin by Plastik. It works well with several BOM enabled head I own, so I thought I’d throw this into the post as well. I like to be rather pale when I am human toned, and this skin is one of the few human toned skins from Plastik that I like to wear more often. It is a good one for layering makeups on, as it is a great plain base. I also think the lips look great on their own, and I find that lacking sometimes, with basic human toned skins.

Monday Eyeful – Madame Noir

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Madame Noir

This week on Monday Eyeful,I am showing you a discounted eye pack, that was out over the weekend for the Manly Weekend Sales Group. When I went to grab my slurl for the store, it was still discounted, as of this post, so might be worth it to hurry over to nab it.

While I might not be a male, I do have to dress up as one for ads, and yes go both ways, you really can’t make an eye that strictly looks manly. I always check the list for that reason. I’ve picked up a few packs from this store so far, from Manly Weekend.

The current offering from Madame Noir is called Moncho Eyes.

They are priced at L$50 currently for a pack of 13 colourations. These are discounted, and the rest of the eye packs in the shop are L$350, so I would assume these will be as well in the very near future. Unrigged Mesh, Catwa, Genus and Lelutka appliers are included in the pack.

Madame Noir - Moncho Eyes

Grab this awesome deal while you still can! Also, keep a look out for other Manly Weekends, it is a great place to score eyes, backdrops and buildings.

Ritual(formerly Lumae), has been doing L$75 Duo packs of skins for only the weekend. 3 have happend so far, so I can only think more will come. Today I am wearing the Elysa tone. I feel it works well with the new budget head I bought from Dream. Got to work on my face shape a bit more, but I am fairly happy.

Growing Temptation

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - Growing Temptation - 1

It is funny how your avatar will evolve, and it feels like it is sudden, when you notice it. I use to collect bumble bee things and panda things, and run around the grid wearing all this super cutesie stuff. I am aware I haven’t worn any of that for a long time now, but I did notice today that I delve more into the fantasy side of things, lately. I did a good stint of urban wear for a good number of years, and while I still wear that for my daily sl tasks, it seems like I am blogging more fanciful things.

Not that I mind in the least. I love trying to make it work with my avatar, and showing others in the ethnic community that it is doable.

I want to talk about all the things I am wearing, but that doesn’t make for a fun post. I will let you know that this snake is animated, and it’s tail coils around you back and to the side.You can find him in a gacha at the new round of Fair Play.

Banana Banshee has new items, it’s owner back from the realms of the real, where she was attending to her newborn. It is great to see the new creations. These new eyes are so darn striking, and I love that they offer the dark alongside the light versions, for the Sclera.

The tiara is from Noble Creations, and is mod, so I totally modded it to suit my needs. This is what the original looks like:

Monday Eyeful – Nelly Eyes by Arise

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Arise

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you a discounted event pack from the Buy Now sale. Arise is taking part in this new project, for how much longer Buy Now will be around, I am not sure. There is currently some drama going on in the designer/event organizer realm of the event. I am not sure how many more round there will be. For now, you can visit the event in a very simple fashion, all you do is visit SL Marketplace, then type in “Buy Now” in search. All the participants will pop up(along with some other random stuff).

The current offering from Arise are called Nelly Eyes.

They are priced L$119 for a pack of 10 colourations. These are discounted, as the normal eyes in the shop normally range from L$59 to L$89 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

.ARISE. Nelly Eyes for BUY NOW

Get this awesome deal while you still can, new round starts June 1st.

Adoness is at the current round of Thrift Shop, which ends tonight. I already blogged the wonderful discount dresses on Free*Style, but as with all Thrift Shops, there is a whole slew of Gachas. My necklace is just one of Adoness’ gacha items. This Gacha in particular comes with these necklaces, with various gems, but also has a forehead adornment that matches, which you can also win.

I’m also wearing a few things from Plastik. They always seem to be in all the things, haha. You will find the new Trellion earrings at N21, as part of a jewelry set, which you can pick up in one of 5 metals.

You will find my horns at the Fantasy Collective. They come in a few sizes, and are fully hudded, so you can switch to match any outfit.

Oh, that Helli, she could drive someone to madness. I sincerely hope you all will enjoy her.

I wasn’t able to participate in the latest round of Fantasy Gacha Carnival, I will hopefully be back in it in August, timeline wise it will work out. That being said, it is still one of my favorite events to both participate in, and go shopping at.

This latest round was themed Scales, Feathers and something else(totally forget but it might have been pearls). Noble Creations made this really nifty female armour set. I feel so shiny in it.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Dragon Warrior - 2

I think even a warrior princess deserves to have a little bit of bling, so I put on these metal encased orb earrings. They sort of remind me of this incense thing I own, that hands on a planter hook. It has the glass sides, that are all colour stained. These earrings are much like that, and you can even adjust the level of transparency to the glass. Each metal type is sold separately, but they do come with a full hud for different options for the glass orbs. You will find these at We Love Roleplay, which is great for you, cause it means they ate at a discount until the end of the month.

Venturing into the Sun

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Venturing into the Sun - 1
I have been away, doing all those thing you must do in the first life, to keep the second one going. It was just a short amount of time, but I couldn’t keep away from the blog much longer. I do enjoy it, it keeps all of the “mes” sane, when work gets too much, or the kids for that matter.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Venturing into the Sun - 2
I ventured out into the sun the past weekend. I was fully covered, so the sun didn’t eat me. I wonder if being photosensitive is like the mild irritations older vampires get when they walk in the sun during the day. We got the last bit of sunday afternoon, I think. The warm is well on it’s way now.

Just a modge podge outfit, of randomness. The only thing new is the dress, which you will find at [EvelineInTheBox]. They price their releases 25% off until the next new release, so if you like it, stop by and get a deal as well! There are 6 different huds, with various colours and patterns.

My amazing lipstick started the whole look and you will find the appliers for various lips, plus the inhouse mesh lips, at Soul.
