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 – 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!

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.

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.

Monday Eyeful – Queen Eyes by Mudskin

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Queen Eyes by Mudskin

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you another find from We Love Roleplay. Mudskin has created a series of eyes, which have some very unique light shines I have not seen done before on an sl eye.

They are called Queen Eyes.

They are priced L$89 per pack of 10 colourations. These are discounted, I can’t recall what the percentage on them was, for the discount. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

Tomorrow is 25L Tuesday, and On a Lark has some Circlets out. One has flowers, the other doesn’t if you want a more plain look. They are currently out, prepped for the coming hoards of shoppers.

Monday Eyeful – Cypher Eyes by Soul

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Soul1

This week on Monday Eyeful, I take you on an epic adventure through the cosmos. Well, not really, but you will find these eyes at Multiverse, a Sci-Fi event that is going on right now, until March 15th. These eyes really do give you a sense of otherness, when you put them on.

These are called called Cypher, and have a good mix of colours to choose from.

They are priced L$199 per colour. System, Mesh, and Applier versions are included in the pack. The Appliers work with and Omega Support Eye mesh, like the Logo Heads, and they have Genesis Eye appliers as well.

24971209660_fc85a08d51_z

Soul made Skins and Makeups for Multiverse as well, for the Men and Ladies of the galaxy. They are easy to mix and match, to create a unique futuristic look.

I threw on a necklace from Plastik, which is new as well, and comes with all the normal Gem Changing Hud features.

My Head is from Genesis Lab, which is the only mesh head I currently support right now, fully. I know the others are more end user friendly, but I find that it is much easier to stay looking unique with the Genesis heads. They have elements which are very similar to my Default face I have had for years, and maybe that is why I am the most drawn to them. This is Melissa, which was out for the February round of Collabor88. They are doing event switchover, so I am sure the head will be back in the mainstore shortly.

Smithy

Dayal Navarathna - Pixel Mythos - Smithy - 1
Soul release an update to the classic clothing layered aprons they had created in the past, but never got released before the mesh boom. You can now put them on the compatible mesh bodies that support the Omega system. The belt hosts some tools, so you can roleplay as a blacksmith, if you so choose.

If you do, Noble Creations has a Blacksmith set in their store, which comes with all the things you would need to outfit your workshop with.

Plastik also recently made jewelry boxes, which might be something you would need, depending on what you decide to create with your metals.

While it might be dangerous, given all the sparks you will set flying, you still can’t go wrong with epic man beard. Calico made this one, and I have had so much fun running around in it.
