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 – Venus Eyes by S0NG

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - S0NG

This week on Monday Eyeful, I visited the Hantai Fair, because come on, TENTACLES!!! There are so many, I was in my glory. Also, there happens to be a large amount of eyes up for grabs at the fair, which always makes me come running. S0NG is there with new eyes, and they still have me guessing as to why they are named what they are. They sort of look like they have snow, not sparkles, but snow, falling inside them. Like a little storm trapped in your eye. I always have such a hard time choosing what colour I want(and often go back for more month later, haha).

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

They are priced L$50 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

Stix has some Limited Editions in their store right now. Hera is the base skinline, in a wonderful goth makeup. There are 4 tones to choose from. I am wearing the Drow tone, but my second favorite is the Snow. Stix always comes with all the appliers possible, I would really be surprised if you can’t make it work for your own mesh collection.

Grab your favorite while you can, they are only L$99 per tone!

Monday Eyeful – Oculos Eyes by Soul

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Soul

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing the new release from Soul, out now for the new round of Enchantment. The Theme is The Last Unicorn. I loved that movie growing up, it made me cry lots, but I still loved, it. Watched it with my aunt, after my mom died, we would sit and eat bonbons out of the box, and have a box of tissues and a cat a piece on our laps.

These are called called Oculos, and have a large variety of colour.

They are priced L$199 for the full pack(not sure what the regular price will be). System and Mesh versions are included in the pack, as well as appliers for Genesis and Omega.

Plastik is also at Enchantment, offering many items, really, so many! Amalthea is like anything they make, jewerly wise, in that is has various necklace types for each necklace pendant. You get a texture change hud, which reacts to the gems, studs and horn, for a more customized look.

Monday Eyeful – Miasma Eyes by #adored

1f

This week on Monday Eyeful, I have some newish eyes from #adored to show you. I will warn you, these take a bit to get use to. The Pupil is a bit higher than default, so if you like to take pictures of your face, you might want to use an eye lock. While it is challenging to wear these, if you do take pics a lot, they do give you some added personality to your shots.

Another thing I have been enjoying is the watery look to them. They made me feel sad as well, which was apt, as this post was meant to go out last monday, after I heard about the loss of our very own Starman. May your adventures forever continue in the cosmos.

These are called Miasma, and they are just so full of emotion.

They are priced L$75 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

Plastik has been on a real jewelry kick lately, bother in the mainstore, and at the various events they participate in. My earrings you can find at GEN-Neutral. They are obviously unisex, and come in so many colours, as is typical for all things Plastik.

Stix is at OMG! Gacha, which is a Bi-Annual Gacha Event, that is seasonally themed. There normally is something for everyone here, as it is very loosely themed, and has a lot of different designers. This skin series is called Tamsin, and has all sorts of fun makeups. There are various head appliers, as well as the standard other mesh parts.Look to the ad, or try a demo to see if these will work for you.

Cole’s Corner has another series of fun particle emitters, this time concentrating on Bokeh shapes. I really like the stars one, which I am wearing in this post. There is also Flowers, Orbs, Hexagons, Hearts and an all-in-one Mixed.

Monday Eyeful – Medusa Eyes by Inkheart

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Inkheart

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I am showing you a nice little affordable eye store, that caters to all sorts of genres in sl.

There are classic eyes as well as some more otherworldly, and everything in between. Inkheart seems very community driven, being active in events and hunts. There is a generous nature to the designer, and the price points work for those on a budget, to those who can afford a little bit more.

These are called Medusa, which I felt was aptly named.

They are priced L$49 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack. There are 3 Iris sizes to choose from, included in each pack.

Medusa Eye SeriesI enjoy wearing my Kissers mesh mouth for these Eyeful posts, as it really does add a little flare to my face, and is just fun for me in general. I get to show off the newly released Kisser Doll Lips today, these being the vampire version. There are 2 others, to match the other lines, which are Orc and Open.

Death’s New Face

War, come with me now . . .

Every once in a while, death gets a new face. This doesn’t mean Death is always the same, in person and mind. Sometimes it is almost like a rebirth, a start over. Sometimes it is like a possession.

The Cycle is good, as each new Death deal’s with it’s task in a new way.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Death's New Face - 1

Totally Top Shelf has opened, and this round it packed full of awesomely spooky items. It’s the perfect one stop shop for the halloween season, so if you haven’t been yet, stop on by.

Souzou Eien has this Mausoleum discounted at Allhallows Showcase Festival, which inspired me to create a whole set for my blogging background. It is the first fully created one by me, I had lots of fun doing it. I have shared it with a great friend, Bambi Chicque, who is the Blogger Manager of Medieval & Fantasy Grid Crier group. She makes really great setups and processes awesome photos, so her flickr is worth a look.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Death's New Face - 2

These striking eyes are from a store I have actually never heard of, called TrevaH. There are a bunch of colours, and you can find them at Totally Top Shelf. while there, check out these plugs from Tabou Irresistable, I didn’t take the best pics of them, but they are covered in blood droplets. There is a nose ring that matches(not worn), also at the event. You can find the crown there too! I wasn’t kidding when I said one stop shopping. Azoury did this piece, and I thought it totally fitting, if Death decided she wanted to see a ruler of her realm.

Stix has created a skin that can be used so many different ways. I chose to be Death, but you could dress this up as a zombie too, I think. Maybe a crow, ghoul or vampire too. It works anyway, haha. As always, her skins come with ALL THE APPLIERS EVER, so much so that your inventory will explode. So if you are into having all the mesh things on at all times, this will probably work for you, just nab a demo to be sure.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Death's New Face - 3

I think I put on too much, there are too many things to talk about!

Eveline in the Box has come out with a series of dresses, called Starling. There are 4 variations of the dress, each coming with a hud that allows you to change the skirt portion, and the top & drape portion of the dress. These are new to the Mainstore, and you can find them right up front.

The last thing, which was a late edition to the outfit, was these wings from The Forge, for Uber.  They have steampunk/post apocalyptic elements, but I thought it sort of looked like old skin stretched in between all the metal frames, so I threw them in for kicks, haha.
