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 – Beautiful Creature Eyes by Rainbow Sundae

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Rainbow Sundae

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you eyes from Rainbow Sundae. Another new to me store, which is sort of the point of this feature, me showing you eyes from places you might not know too.

These are from Rainbow Sundae called Beautiful Creature Eyes.

They are priced at L$150 per pack of 6, with 2 packs to collect. System/BOM and Omega Appliers are included in the pack. These are 100% charity items for Relay for Life at this years Fantasy Faire.

_Rainbow Sundae_ Beautiful Creature Eyes - Pastel

I have been enjoying the look of these on a mesh head that you can manipulate the eyes to be rather large. I think they are striking, and can be used for many different sorts of creatures. Great for Roleplaying, and fantasy looks.

I’m also wearing a few other things from Fantasy Faire. The crown is from Ambix and the Tattoo is from Even-Tide. Both are 100% Relay for Life Charity Items.

I was so happy to learn Even-Tide was still around. It is hard trying to check up on all your friends, and all the stores, when you come back after such a long break. So many people are resurfacing as well. It feels like a good time to have come back, even though the reasons for so many inworld right now aren’t the best.

Natural Calm

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - Natural Calm

Being part of a family is always great, although I don’t really talk to the ladies of Dandelion Daydreams Factory Sim all that often. They have welcomed us from Pixel Mythos, to their sim, and have given us rez rights. Many pictures have been taken on the sim, and posted to this blog, as well as Free*Style. I always feel comfortable here, and enjoy the nature on my visits. I always find something new, and enjoy visiting favorite spots. It is great for me to be able to quickly rez out an item, that I otherwise would not be able to post, for lack of a proper place to rez it.

Today I have some H&G items from [CIRCA] to show you. The log behind me, is a couples log, with many animations. It has grasses and flowers with it, to make a complete and cozy little scene. The Sleeping Willow in the back is also from [CIRCA], which comes with some grasses at it’s base. Both items you can find at Fantasy Faire, which is officially running until May 1st.

I’m also wearing a few things from Fantasy Faire. There is always so much to discover, to collect, do participate in. I actually take time off, so that I can enjoy it a bit, each year.

Fantasy Faire – Moonlit

Helena Stringer - Fantasy Faire 2016 - Moonlit - 1
The moon so bright and full, calls to the creatures of the night. There are places to be, places to explore. The vale has lifted and new worlds have arisen from the murky depth. All creatures, big and small, hear the call, and are compelled by it. Come, it says. Explore, it says.

Fantasy Faire is now open, and you have until May 1st to explore the wonder of all 14 sims.

I was lucky to be chosen to be an official writer for the Fantasy Faire Website, so you will see me posting there, as well as Free*Style and It’s only Fashion.

I have been a long time designer friend of Alpha Auer, the owner of alpha.tribe, and she contacts me yesterday, out of the blue. Low and behold, she is in Fantasy Faire, with new and wonderful avatar art for everyone to wear. We had a good chat, and she was ever so kind to pass me a few of her items.

I am wearing one of her more tame outfits, called Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Like all of the wearable art in the store, this outfit is unisex, includes skins, hair, garments, accessories and footwear. I was called to this outfit the most out of the lot, and felt very vampiric once adorned.

I decided to soup up the skin a little with the new eyeshadows from Musa, which were also released at Fantasy Faire. You can view the options HERE. The set includes 8 shadows, for default avatars and Omega compatible mesh heads. There is also a charity pack of 3 shadows, with all proceeds going to Relay for Life.

Play with me, come take flight.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - Dancing with Butterflies - 2

I am not often a petite anymore. There was a time when I was tiny, more than half my week. I made a lot of content for these wee creatures, and still continue to do so, to a point.

Fantasy Faire always has a plethora of items for the petites, and this year is no different. I dug in, dusted off my little wings, and created an outfit for you all to enjoy.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - Dancing with Butterflies - 3
Fallen Gods created a special skin for Relay for Life, every Fantasy Faire, this year bringing forth a creature from the deep. The watery designs on the face are rather beautiful, reminding me more of dew on a spiderweb, but keeping to that essence of those that live under the waves. Meet

Fantasy Faire 2015 – YoZakura Sim

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 1
The Villagers have all settled down, resting before the festival. The market seems quiet, with blossoms floating in the wind.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 2

The Blossoms whisper, carrying their secrets to the ears of those able to listen. Something stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 3

On the hilltop high, some celebrate, unaware of what is brewing below, in the coming night.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 4

It is suddenly so calm, the ponds lay quiet, reflecting the sky.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 5

A sentry, with his lone lantern, lights the way, for whom, no one knows.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 6

Flowers glow, with mystical glow.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 7

Paper boats with well wishes float along, words twirling, caught by the whispers of the blossoms. Something stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 8

Strange creatures, from the deep, surface from their sleep, drawn by the currents of power. Something stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 9

Asleep, hidden, for 1000 years.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 10

Something stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 11

On the hilltop high, the lights still twinkle.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 12

On the hilltop high, only the blossoms move.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 13

From the cave, where it stirs, out to the sky, where it moves, up on the rock, where it rests, where you see it’s mighty crest.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 14

Nothing else stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 15

It speaks to the moon, the trees and the ponds. It blesses the people, whom are it’s charge. It wishes them well, and bids them good night. It looks to the air, and takes to flight.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 16

What wonders unfold, on Hanami Festival night. What lies beyond the border, what fantasies come to light?

Visit YoZakura – you only have until the 3rd!
