Rare Snowman Mask

Hey jammers! The Monday "rare" today is the Rare Snowman Mask. You can purchase this pricey, limited edition item on the first page of Jam Mart Clothing. Hurry, before they're gone!
AJHQ has already posted about it on the Daily Explorer.
Now, for our mystery Monday. . . In the depths of the Chamber of Knowledge there lies a engraved golden ring, encircling the most treasured and ancient artifacts of jamaasian history.
If we could look closely enough, are their words engraved their? How did this circle come to be? Who created it? What is it doing here? Why is it located in such a key part of the chamber?

New artwork is posted on the Spirit Art mini blog!

  9. The gold ring was created by Mira so that the shamans/alphas could all meet.During those meetings they could talk and share what was on there mind.until one day phantoms invaded the chamber and made the shamans/alphas leave.the writing says "meeting ring".now the ring is just history.

    happy jamming!

    1. i have an idea; what if the ring protected them from the phantoms while they met; the reason we can't see the writing now is the phantoms destroyed the magic script that protected the inside of the ring!

      Delete
    2. Probably, i think Mira made the ring so when the shamans wanted to have a conversation with each other (e.g: Sir Gilbert and Greely though i don't think that is a good combo).

      Delete
    3. I believe that it was a nursery for those jammers of the jammer's parents who were fighting in the war against the phantoms, it protected them inside the ring from anything evil on the outside.

      Delete
    4. i think Mira made the golden circle so she could connect with other Jammers. For example, with a touch of Mira's beak, the golden ring would activate. When activated, she could read mail and important messages from Jammers and Alphas.

  11. Here's where I come in,

    A long time ago, in jamaa, there was a golden ring in the middle of jamaa township. It was very powerful and represented all of jamaa. Well one day sir Gilbert went to see the ring, late at night. He heard some noises so he quickly hid behind a clothing rack. There he watched the phantoms flying with the ring. He was too late. The next day everyone was frantic because the ring was gone. Sir Gilbert told them what he saw happen. We all know how fast things spread in jamaa, and sure enough Mira knew about this that afternoon. She knew without the ring jamaa could crumble right then and there. Then Liza thought up a plan. That night she and peck went to the phantom's den. Little did they know greely followed them. So they snuck up on the phantom king and beat him up. They took the ring while the guards were just coming out. The guards were gaining on them , then greely froze them. They got home. The next day everyone decided that the ring wasn't safe, so they built a temple, underground in the temple of zios. There they put the ring and all great treasures of jamma.
    The end,

  13. The ring is a timeline of Jamaa's history. You can see that there are some ancient runes. Those are Mira's sacred, sacred runes that she and the Shamans only use for recording important events. "Why is the circle not fully covered in runes?" You may ask. Well, here's why:
    All of Jamaa's history has not fully played out. Some say that we even have our own runes, for each of our names. "Well- what if we have the same name?" One may ask. Here, again, is how:
    Mira knows each of your names. Let's say at your school there's a good number of Jacks, Sarahs, Jeremys, and Bobs. We all know each other, right? Same with Mira.

  14. I sorta mushed my ideas together (which i frequently do) so anyways:

    There once was a shaman, long forgotten now, that was virtuous and loving. Her love for Jamaa rivaled even Mira's, and her kindness toward the Jammaasians rivaled even Liza's. This shaman had no name, as it has been long forgotten over the long centuries of Jamaa.

    There was a day when the clouds gathered on the horizon and a cloud of phantoms clustered, crackling with chaos. As the Jamaasians fled in terror, the shamans ran to confront the evil terror which rivaled them so. The nameless shaman watched, helpless and her companions fought with all their might, against a nightmare that had been for centuries. She felt useless, as she had no magic of herself.

    As time passed, a small flame of envy caught in the nameless shaman's heart. She secretly despised the other shamans for their magic and talent, for she felt she had none. Mira noticed a change in her disciple, a twist in her attitude. The nameless shaman grew twisted with darkness and envy. She began to despise what which she once had loved.

    The nameless shaman couldn't bear seeing her companions every day anymore. One quiet and still night, when the crickets had finished their midnight concert, she stole away, racing with the speed of a horse and the quiet of a hunting tiger. She bounded across the forest, until she reached the still tundra, and yet she still ran. She ran until she couldn't see the light of her old Jamaa anymore.

    The nameless shaman vowed never to return, for she was of no use in Jamaa. No one would miss her, she was only a shadow of the other shamans. No. There would be no shadows from here on, she thought. The Jamaasians hadn't loved her. No one had ever praised her. She would go to the phantoms.

    With fear in her heart, she padded into the cavern in which the phantoms lurked. As two glided out to intercept their prey, she held her head high, her eyes flashing. "I come to join you" she said.

    It was silence in the cavern, except for a dark bubbling and crackling of the chaotic energy. Finally, the leader phantom extended a dark tendril and touched the nameless animal. It was a symbol that she had been accepted.

    That night, the nameless animal was disturbed by dreams. "Full circle" the dreams whispered to her. "Full circle" the spirits of the past murmured. Not knowing what they meant, she dismissed the voices as pointless babble and nonsense. She was herself now. No Mira to control her, no shamans to rival her. It was perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Day after day, the nameless animal would join the phantoms in their ravaging of Jamaasian lands, and the plundering of Jamaasian treasure. They would feast in the evening, and defeat any who tried to vanquish them. But slowly, the tiniest spark of guilt formed inside the nameless animal. This wasn't her true self, it whispered. Go back, go back, it would repeat. They'll still accept you, you have a chance, it begged.
    But the nameless animal refused, ashamed of going back.


    There came a day when the phantoms rose to their full power and shook through all of Jamaa. Not able to bear it, the nameless animal ran to hide, refusing to hurt her companions of the past. The phantoms ravaged the land, and as the shamans stood against them, they prepared a final deciding blow. Out of the brush, the nameless animal ran, ran to intercept the phantoms' attack.

    When the dust had cleared, the nameless animal was nowhere to be found. A golden circle of molten gold trickled on the ground, glowing gently. The animal had come full circle. She had returned to where she had begun.

    In honor of the nameless animal, the shamans built a temple, with the gold circle protecting their most prized talismans. There, the little forgotten shaman would do her duty. She would guard their treasures of their success.

    Sometimes, in the quiet chamber, if you listen carefully, you can almost hear the shriek of the forgotten shaman as she raced to intercept the phantom's blow. You can almost see the bright flash as the shaman fell. You can almost see the forgotten shaman herself, sitting in the corner, watching over generations of happiness, laughter, and success. You can see how her eyes glowed as she took her final breath, with love for Jamaa. You can feel the kindness she exerted once for the Jamaasians. You can walk in the chamber, and walk back out changed. You can come full circle again, like the little shaman that was.

  19. wow pricey rare O.O but heres my story.

    Long ago in Jamaa each shaman brought a special treasure to honor Mira and Jamaa. To thank the shamans Mira created statues of them, and placed them with the treasures. However the phantoms wanted to steal these treasures and make the shamans sad of their loss. So they attemped to steal the treasures. Sir Gilbert tried to attack the phantoms but Greely said no. Sir Gilbert attacked anyways killing some of the phantoms. Mira put a magic golden ring around the treasures protecting them so only the animals could admire the them. However Mira said something to Greely. "Greely why and how could you even dare to be on the phantoms said when Sir Gilbert was doing the right thing." "I. . am sorry Mira". . . "I forgive you Greely, but your punishment is for your statue to be moved a bit farther away from the others, and it will bring you less honor." Greely nodded and went home. Mira hanked Sir Gilbert for fighting the phantoms and everyone went home happy. The End!

    lol i hope you all liked it! i am proud of it :)
    Happy Jamming!

  23. The golden circle was meant for Mira and the Alphas to read important messages. Or at least it was. It's useless now. Stupid Akkad.

    Akkad was an Alpha, the woman version of Greely. She was Greely's wife and Greely begged for her to be an alpha to. Eventually, Mira gave in. But Akkad was different. her left eye was blind. That blind eye brought the verbal and physical abuse of Mira and the Alphas.

    Eventually, Mira forced Greely to banish her from the land, and injure her in the process. That night Greely awakened Akkad, and smacked her so hard on her face, she passed out. Greely took that opportunity to drag her to the Banished Land. The Banished Land was a place that was just dreadful. The ground was covered with ash and dead plants, and volcanos were just a couple hundred yards away from each other.

    Akkad was super mad! She was going to get her revenge. She was going to destroy the golden circle. But with what she thought. There must be something sharp near by. She scanned the horizon, and found a very sharp, black diamond. She picked it up and got on her way to destroy the golden circle.

    Finally, Akkad had got there. She looked around to see if there was anyone there. She approached the golden circle, grinned, and pounded it with the sharp diamond, cracking it. Mira quickly found out, the sound could be heard from miles around! She arrived to see Akkad pounding the golden circle with a sharp diamond. She quickly levitated Akkad up into the air, and froze her with cold ice. She quickly sent the frozen Akkad back to the Banished Land to the frozen area of it.

    After Akkad was gone, she put a spell on the golden circle, which would repair it. She knew it would never be the same, the cracks showed. She covered the cracks with golden paint, making the cracks look like writing.

    That is the story of the golden circle.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ive never done a story about the mystery monday, so here we go! Prepared to be NOT amazed.
    A long time ago, mira created a golden ring that symbolizes the alphas leadership and power as one. Mira put it in the chamber of knowledge for everyone to see. The alphas were so amazed, they wrote on the golden ring in their language "the mother of the sky, the mother of us all. Together we can be as one". Mira was so pleased in their thoughtfulness she gave them all a hug and said "bless you younglings"
    But sadly when the phantoms invaded jamaa, they made the ring fall from the table. But strangely, it never shattered or broke, It just lit of with a powerful light and laid there as whole. No one has known why the ring didn't shatter, but many people said that the power the jammers have as one and the love and care we have for one and other was stronger than the death and evil of the phantoms. Many jammers say that we are stronger than phantoms and we can conquer them with our love and glory of the world of jamaa. So the golden ring symbolizes the respect and care that us jammers have and that my fellow jammers, is why the golden ring has came to be.

  29. The lost ring of zios...
    A long time when the natives of zios ruled the land, they worshipped a certain object... The ring of zios... The first animals believed that the ring was a gift from Mira when she created jamaa. They believed that it granted power and immortality to any being in possession of the ring. The phantoms heard of this rare treasure and schemed (as usual) to take it... The natives were gathered around a fire telling stories and such while the phantoms stealthy snucked into the chamber of knowledge, the chamber of knowledge was where the natives organized stories and many legends of how jamaa was formed, all involving Mira. The phantoms made their way to the treasure room and easily grabbed the ring with their grubby hands, they saw the chance to take all the treasure and they took it... unfortunetly for them Mira saw from above and shone a bright blue light from the heavens to stop the phantoms in their track. The natives noticed this and the chief in ancient zios language told his tribe to follow. When they arrived nothing seemed wrong. The treasures were all there and nobody was in sight... But the ring was missing... They searched frantically for it but saw no sign of it, until one noticed a peculiar pattern on the floor. It was the ring. It also had a some words engraved into it in ancient zios language... it was crudely written but the words you have failed me were barely readable... Over time treasures were gather and kept there to be guarded by the ring for greed is a mans greatest weakness and all of jamaas greatest treasures stayed safe down there for one animals find... is everyone's treasure
