Rare Astronaut Helmet

Hey jammers! Today's rare colored item is the blue and grey Rare Astronaut Helmet, located on the second page of Jam Mart Clothing. Pretty expensive, 800 gems, earning time!
 Sorry for posting late, I was too tired to post any earlier. Here is AJHQ's post on this interesting rare item.
They've also posted the first of the News Crew Article winners for the Bird-of-Paradise contest. Congrats Snow Leopard!
I'm sorry, I don't have the time to type up the weekly mystery today, maybe next week! In the meantime, maybe you could try and write a story of how/why Zios disapeared. . .

New art is posted on the Spirit Art mini blog!

    7. @ Zebra savvy,

      Actually you shouldnt eat bacon because it is very unhealthy. You probably won't be surprised to learn that 68% of bacon's calories come from fat, almost half of which is saturated. Each ounce of bacon contributes 30 milligrams of cholesterol (not to mention the cholesterol from the eggs that often accompany bacon.

      Eating foods rich in saturated fats can raise your cholesterol levels, increasing your risk of heart disease and stroke. And if those saturated fat-rich foods are also high in dietary cholesterol, cholesterol levels tend to rise even higher.

      The American Heart Association recommends limiting saturated fat to less than 7% of your total calories (that’s less than 16 daily grams of saturated fat for someone eating 2,000 calories a day). So under those guidelines, it might seem sensible to switch to turkey bacon, which is lower in fat and cholesterol.

      But here's the bad news: When it comes to increasing the risk for certain cancers, things get downright scary for bacon lovers. Not only is bacon considered a red meat, it’s also a member of the dreaded "processed meat" group (even turkey bacon falls into this category. And NO amount of processed meat is considered safe to eat, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research.

      Processed meat is usually red meat preserved via smoking, curing, or salting and it includes many favorite American foods in addition to bacon:

      Ham
      Sausage
      Hot dogs
      Bologna
      Salami
      Pepperoni
      Pastrami
      Many researchers have concluded that regular consumption of processed meats may lead to higher risk for prostate cancer and several other cancers. That’s why AICR advises people to avoid all forms of processed meat until we know more about what it is specifically about processed meat that increases cancer risk.

      It’s not clear how exactly processed meat raises cancer risks, but it might have to do with:

      Nitrates, which are often used as preservatives in processed meat, change into N-nitroso (compounds that promote cancer) in the meat and also in the gut when it is being digested.
      Carcinogenic PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) compounds can be produced during processing.

  11. Hey snowyclaw! Heres how I think that Zios disappeared:

    Once a long time ago Zios and Mira were working together happily making jamaa a better place. Mira and Zios both thought that they should add a new animal to the amazing world of jamaa. Zios thought that he will secretly go out and search for a new animal and surprise Mira. Later that day, Mira was searching for Zios. She got very sad and scared and she didn't know what happened to him. She thought that he had died. She started crying. Her tears were mixed with anger and sadness and those tears created the phantoms. The phantoms started destroying everything in their path and even Mira was helpless against them. Soon Zios returned to jamaa because he could not find a new animal. When Zios saw the phantoms and the ruins of jamaa he froze with horror. "ZIOS!" Cried Mira. "MIRA! WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?" Asked Zios. "I thought you were gone... and I started crying and when I did then they appeared!" Said Mira. "What?" asked Zios who was very confused. Suddenly the phantoms shot Zios with a huge blast of electrical bolts. Zios instantly died. You can still see Zios remains in the lost temple of Zios.

  12. My story will be short because i am on a phone, but here goes nothin'.
    Zios and Mira were what they were. A face and a bird, happily creating Jamaa. But one day, the phantoms were created from Mira's tears of sorrow when she almost gave up, because she was working so hard to make Jamaa the best, but ran out of ideas. So the phantoms were now defeating her, and turned her to stone, they then did the same to Zios, but he couldn't withhold the strength, that he crumbled to the ground. Fellow Jamassians now believe Mira's spirit is still alive in the statue in JAMaa Township. She is watching over, but Zios, sadly, his only spirit is weak and can only watch over the creatures and Jamassians in the Temple Of Zios.

  19. No one knows the REAL reason why Zios disappeared. Some say Mira killed and/or banished him, others say he died of old age. My guess is that he was killed... But by whom? Phantoms were not yet created, and Mira would never banish him, Zios was immortal-- but how did he disappear? What if he is alive? But, he is not alive... the legends say. I suspect... well, here's what I suspect:
    Long, long ago, when few Jamaasians were in a faraway place called Jamaa, there lived Zios and Mira, Sky Father and Mother. They were royalty, and the Jamaasians looked up to them. There were only two Shamans at the time: Liza and Graham. Zios had fallen ill, dangerously ill. Mira paced the throne room, trying to think of an answer. Her eyes kept closing and her head nodded off more often than when she thought of answers. Finally Liza said," Mira, rest. We shall find out who-- or what-- has made Zios ill, rest."
    Mira finally conceded to her wish and curled up on her throne, watching the stars shimmer lazily. Suddenly three guards were upon her, claws drawn. Mira cried out and batted them away with her wing. Liza charged into the throne room and dispatched the two others. Mira heard a cry from Zios and then her heart stopped. She flew out, her wings flapping furiously, trying to save Zios. She entered his room and found him, his blood spilling out. She walked over to him, her eyes watering. Zios looked up at her, trying to say something, then closed his eyes and lay still for forevermore. Mira let out a screech, full of agony and sorrow. All the Jamaasians looked up then understood why she had cried out. Zios, the Sky Father, was gone. Mira couldn't help it as her tears spilled out, mixing with her husband's blood and the dust. Strange, dark creatures haunted-- haunt her. They are what we call Phantoms. The guards, Mira's trusted fleet, had killed... the... Sky Father....

  28. okay here's my story: Zios, the Sky Father, was pleased with the early "long time way before beta". He saw that it was good, and then he went up to the skies to rest. But then during early, early beta, he saw darkness beginning to form over the land. The clans (as you already know them) were fighting and killing. This wasn't what he wanted. So he came down and said, "Please make peace. This isn't what I wanted. This is chaos." But instead the said, "No, we will not change our ways!" and they killed him. And Mira's tears made the mysterios mist we call Phantoms. -thun8902

  30. The Statue and the Battleaxe

    This story was told to me by the first animal of Jamaa. They wish to remain unknown.

    This happened in the Beta Age, when all were equal. I remember it like it was yesterday, when Zios and Mira were ruling from the to of Mount Shiveer in their Cloud Palace, when I was the first animal in Jamaa, before the Phantoms came.
    Zios and Mira lived in the Cloud Palace on top of Mount Shiveer. All the Alphas were there in Jamaa except for Peck, who came after the Great War.
    One day, Zios and Mira were celebrating the anniversary of the Creation. There was much feasting and music late into the night. A huge statue of Zios was unveiled in The Temple of Zios.
    The next day, all of Jamaa, including Mira, was sleeping. Zios, however, was wide awake. He decided to take another look at his statue; to make sure it hadn't been a wonderful dream.
    He walked down to the statue, and was looking at it, when he heard a noise behind him. He turned, but there was nothing there. Suddenly, he felt a stinging sensation in his neck, and everything went dark.

    ***
    When he awoke, he was in a dark room. There was a large block of stone on the floor. He heard a noise, and a enormous beast came into the room. It looked at him, and laughed it's deep, evil laugh.
    "Who are you?" Zios bravely asked.
    "I am Nulok," replied the beast. "Destroyer."
    I saw all this, for I was spying on Nulok. I rushed to warn the Alphas. They came, but not soon enough, only in time to see Zios die under the great battleaxe of Nulok. All of us rushed into the fight, determined to make Nulok pay.
    ( Editor's Note: At this point in the story, the animal told me her real name: Aria, adopted daughter of Mira.)
    None fought harder than I, for Zios was my father. I was a moose from the North, who had lost my family, my brother Spark, my home, everything.
    I struck the final blow to Nulok, but as he fell, he transported himself to Zios' statue and crushed it.

    ***
    When Mira learned of her mate's death, she wept tears of sorrow. Those tears turned to Phantoms, and we fought in the Great War against them. We saved Jamaa, but it was drasticly changed forever, and Jaamasians were no longer equal; some had more privileges than others. The Temple was closed off, but eventually reopened, and it became The Lost Temple of Zios.

    The End

    How do you guys like my story?

  34. The Last Dinosaur



    Long, long ago in Jamaa, before the wolves and animals of all sorts ruled, another creature was dominant. Dinosaurs. Colossal reptilian creatures such as Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Plesiosaurus. these creatures were massive and had the physique of lizards and such. their heads held small, instinctual, and not very smart brains. Some were herbivorous or some were carnivorous.

    But there was one plesiosaurus, a dinosaur that swam in the deep blue ocean, who was smarter than the others. his mind was not tinted by evil phantoms or the instinct to kill. This dinosaur sensed things, things no other would know of until they happened.

    He knew the era of the dinosaurs was soon to end. The volcano behind the Temple of Zios was spewing black smoke and lava seemed about to pour from its rocky peak He had a plan, a plan to escape this disaster and be the last dinosaur of Jamaa.

    ~~~~
    The next day he packed some fish and and herbs in a large palm leaf as a sort of tote bag. This dinosaur had no friends, the other dinosaurs were cruel and nasty to nice, intelligent dinosaurs like him, so luckily he had nobody to take with him. He set out, swimming through a chilly river that led from the Crystal Sands, his home, to Mt. Shiveer. The river got colder and colder as he paddled nearer to a cave in Mt. Shiveer where said river led to.Along the way he saw other dinosaurs bathing in the river and lying stretched out in the sun, as if nothing was going to happen. But he knew. He knew the era of the great dinosaurs was going to end.

    ~~~~
    As he arrived in the warm hot spring area of Mt. Shiveer, it started. Everything around him seemed to be on fire or covered with ash as the volcano behind Zios exploded and shot flaming ash everywhere over Jamaa.This volcano was huge, and when it did erupt, it was a disaster to all of Jamaa. The only safe places were in caves and underground. Our friend used this to his advantage.Seeing an opening to a small cave next to the hot springs, he desperately swam with all his might to the entrance. He tried to avoid the embers falling from the sky, but his attempts were futile and in return he got burned where the embers touched him. He reached the entrance to the small cave and looked back to see the world being destroyed around him. It was cold. Very, very cold in this cave. The plesiosaurus laid in the small water puddle that formed in the bottom of the cave, thinking death would soon be upon him.

    ~~~~
    This dinosaur stayed in that cave and watched the world of Jamaa go into its Ice Age, his hunger and thirst depending on only fish and cave water. The plesiosaurus felt himself getting colder and colder until he thought his blood was being frozen. After a while of being at a subzero temperature, He realized, he was literally frozen. He didn't know how, but he was still breathing and could move his eyes. But all of his body was imprisoned in the ice. He couldn't move and his food pack was flat on the ground below him, also frozen in the ice. He felt hunger and death creeping up upon him. He couldn't move, he couldn't eat, he was just.. there.
    ~~~~
    ~Epilogue~:
    In the new world of Jamaa, animals came to bathe in the hot springs. They always look at the plesiosaurus frozen in the ice and wonder how he got there. They think he was on a brave quest and somehow got there, or fell asleep and woke up frozen, the jamaasian animals had many fables about this dinosaur.
    Some think of him as a picture of bravery and determination, for they learned it from their fables. Some say he is still alive, Some say that they see his eyes blink at them. They think he is still alive.

    the End!

    Umm, well AJHQ made a story of Jamaa, most of you know it, Zios made Mira, they fell in love and made Jamaa and all of that. Well it also says Zios "DIED", it dose not say how, but there was nothing that could have killed him, so Zios died of natual causes. When he died, Mira got sad, mad, ect, and "Accidently" created the phantoms.
    (The phantoms were made AFTER he died, before then NOBODY (in jamaa) ever did anything bad. and it says he died, not killed.)

    Hmm, this is just something wild but, Mira could have perposly made the phantoms. (It's possible ain't it?) The only way we will find that answer is by asking this question. Where is Mira?

  38. The Fall of Zios
    Part 1: A gentle breeze danced over the treetops, creating ripples in water. Never stopping to slow it's endless run. The wind blew through the mountains, to a land green and lush. It raced up the hillside, to the highest peak of a hill coated in soft grass. There stood the sky mother, Mira, and the sky father, Zios.
    "I must go now," whispered Mira, her grey-gold feathers shimmering in the silver moonlight.
    "I know, my love. Be safe; be careful. I will wait forever for you," murmured Zios.
    "I know you will. And I will keep believing our paths may cross again. I just keep having doubts about this risk. I know we must collect more knowledge for our jamaasians...but our power is only strongest united. If danger should come...” Mira paused, taking a deep breath.
    “Don't fret, everything will be fine. When you return, I will be here just the same. We'll help the migrating birds to their spring homes in Sarepia Forest. Now be be safe my love...I'll wait for you as long as it takes...” Zios lightly touched Mira on the tips of her feathers. She gazed at him one final time, her eyes filled with love and sorrow. Then she unfolded her grey-gold wings with a shower of light. Her talons dug deep into the soft earth, and then she launched into the air and up through the night sky to the stars.
    Many moons past as Mira explored the world beyond Jamaa. She gained the wisdom and knowledge no other creature could ever possess, and recorded her discoveries on leaf scrolls. Though, she often looked up to the stars and wondered if Zios was looking at the same ones. Sadness and homesickness overwhelmed her. She felt a disturbance in the balance of nature.
    Flying with the speed of lightning, Mira soared through the sky. Many moons made it a relief to finally see her home once again. As she landed, however, she felt Jamaa too quiet. Mira searched through the land to find her love and her jamaasian children.
    Upon entering the swamp forest of Amarhi, she stopped in surprise as several animals, a young tiger, rabbit, and panda-bear approached her.
    “Mira..?” whispered the young rabbit.
    “Mira, you've returned!” cried the panda-bear.
    “Don't you see what this means! We have to tell her!” hissed the tiger to his companions.
    “Oh...” murmured the rabbit and panda.
    “Please...follow us Mira,” wordlessly the tiger and his friends headed to a moss covered statue that Mira did not recognize. Their tails were drooping and heads down.
    “We'll leave you here.” The three slowly backed away into the shadows.
    How odd, thought Mira. Why were my children behaving with such sadness?
    She slowly paced to the moss covered statue.
    No...It can't be!
    Mira fell onto the fallen statue of Zios, tears rolling down her feathered cheeks.
    “No!” she wailed.
    He promised that he would be here, but not as a stone! He promised to bring the birds to their new nests in the forest with me! He promised... He promised...
    Mira sobbed and sobbed until her eyes were left dry as the desert air. She was heartbroken, and angry. Not angry at Zios, but at herself. She had failed him. Her heart ached with longing and sadness.
    How did he end like this? she silently questioned the stars.
    “He...we were ambushed by the Stalisks... but the alphas rid the land of them. The Stalisks will not be returning in a hurry...” as if they could read her mind, the three animals stepped forward from where they had waited in the shadows.
    Stalisks were one of the deadliest creatures in the land. They had wicked powers to turn things to stone.
    Mira barely heard. She couldn't help but blame herself. Without her, Zios had only had half of his power.

  39. Sudden movement caught her eye. Dark mist was swirling around the statue of Zios. The dark mist rose and surged around the statue, turning into tiny, black creatures with one, huge, center eye.
    The rabbit shrieked, and the three fled to hide. Then, miraculously, one of the creatures spoke.
    “Your precious Zios is gone!” they sneered. “With our equal power of transforming things to stone as the Stalisks, we will conquer and capture all of Jamaa and your so called 'children'!”
    “You will not hurt my Jamaasian children!” cried Mira.
    The angered creatures roared as one and shot a dark ball at her talons. They started freezing in place as stone crept up her beautiful feathers.
    “I am not afraid of you and your dark magic!” she cried.
    I deserve this fate for leaving my love. My children will indeed miss me greatly, but they will find the leaf scrolls, and share my...their knowledge. I am ready.
    Before the stone reached Mira's silver wings, she held them together, closed her eyes, and slowly, concentrated her powers to make glowing ball of light and energy.
    “It's too bright!” shrieked one of the creatures.
    Mira hurled the ball at them, banishing their evil stone-turning powers, only letting them be nightmares and nothing more that could ever hurt her children. As the last stretch of stone enclosed on her, Mira folded her wings back and closed her eyes.
    “Goodbye,” she breathed to everything.
    The stone closed around her forever.
    Today the “Mira statue” is centered in Jamaa Township as a symbol of hope to all of her Jamaasian children (jammers) that one day, a united Mira and Zios, sky mother and father, will return to forever banish the phantoms' evil curse on their land. This story explains the fall of Zios and Mira, and why when sleeping near the Zios statue in the (today known as) Lost Temple of Zios, once the swamp forest of Amarhi.
    A Note: I really think this story is personally just...well...really bad. The idea and everything...egh. I'm sorry if I wasted your time. I'll probably not win anything anyways- I won another 2 weeks ago. I'm not expecting to win anything for this story, there are some other great ones too, Snowyclaw.

  42. Here is my story.

    Once upon a time, long, long ago, on a peaceful spring day, Zios decided to redecorate Jamaa. So he walked to Jamaa, and thought it was quite safe to show himself in Jamaa Township. Little did he know that showing up in Jamaa Township would ruin his life forever. As soon as he stepped into Jamaa Township, millions of animals ran up to him. They had many questions for him to answer. He answered them all patiently, still unaware of the dangers lying ahead of him. He felt grateful that all the animals seemed to be behaving.

    Then, the sky rumbled. It cracked open just like an egg, and soon, there was a huge storm in Jamaa. All of the animals had ran to a shelter long before the skies made way for the rain. Zios whispered to himself silently,
    "I must continue decorating Jamaa.." Then a phantom appeared, then another one, then all of a sudden there were millions of phantoms surrounding Zios.

    They took him away from Jamaa and into the dark, dark, dark phantom village where they lived. They told Zios to give them great power, or they would destroy him. Zios refused, and the phantoms took him away, only leaving his mask, which Mira found and put in the temple and grave of her long lost companion.

    THE END

    Thanks, Snowyclaw!

  43. Here is my story.
    A long time ago, the animals knew nothing about the phantoms or how they came. (Phantoms were not created that time) Mira was soaring in the enchanted, foggy sky. She felt a strange feeling that something was wrong." What could ever happen to the beautiful land of Jamaa?" Mira thought with a puzzled look on her face. She swooped down to check on the animals and of course, Zios.

    Mira balanced herself with her graceful tail. She looked around the township, the beach, the forest, the canyons, the mountain, the savanna, and all the other places. She thought that everything was in perfect shape. The animals were chatting and walking in row, calling parties, asking for adoption (which by the way Mira smiled at the little animals pretending to be mythical or royal). "It is a good time to go to the temple." Mira murmured softly

    While flying, she spotted a little scamming going on and decided to check the little "argument." Later, she helped a young fox with a painting. "I am only wasting precious time." Mira breathed. She turned around and found the temple. Suddenly, Mira gasped. There she found her beloved Zios lying on the fresh ferns.

    Landing on the on the rocks, Mira poked her beak softly into Zios. He seemed to mutter something Mira didn't understand. "Zios? You ok?" Mira sighed. "Oh Mira! It's great to see you." Zios gazed into Mira's sea blu eyes. "You are alive! That is a relief." Mira felt better. Zios still didn't smile. Instead, his eyes turned misty and filled with sorrow. "Goodbye Mira. I love you. Take care of our animals. I am very old now and I'm about to die......." "No!" Mira shrieked. But it was too late. Mira's tears of sadness, as you might have heard, turned into phantoms. If you are lucky enough, you might see Zios's spirit floating around and, he might see you.
