Spirit Crew #1

Hey jammers! Welcome to the first ever Spirit Crew contest. As my inspiration for this blog was the stories and lore, and our mascot (in a way) is Mira, the sky mother of Jamaa, the first Spirit Crew assignment is about the fantastic imagination found in Animal Jam.

What do the legends of Jamaa mean to you?
Check below the break for how to enter!



What do the legends of Jamaa mean to you? Who are the shamans and why do they matter? Would the game be different without its hidden stories? What does Animal Jam have that other games don't?

 You could answer these questions or go off on your own tangent, it's very open-ended! If you like, write a short story, an article, or interview other jammers on their thoughts. Be sure to keep your submission under 250 words, and include a picture that represents your words. Click here to learn how to take a screenshot.
Prizes include a rare and your article published here on AJS!

Be sure to submit by midnight AJS time on February 28 so your submission can be considered. Include your article and picture in an email addressed to ajscontests@gmail.com
Good luck, and happy writing!

    2. Why was this posted so early in the morning? I'll never get first like this! ;(

    3. And also, I like how Snowy is posting them early, because here in Australia, it's perfect for me - there is an update as soon as I come home from school!

    6. I'm not that good at Swoopy Eagle: my high score is 2 and I played so many times that I got achievements (even when I didn't even make the first platform .-.)
      Swoopy Bird is such a copy off of Flappy Bird. Why did AJ have to copy such a frustrating game!? xD

  5. It's kinda like the news crew, and I think thats nice because AJHQ rarely has those contests now.

  9. Snowyclaw? Why you make such kind of Spirit Crew? Don't you think that what if someone else is hurtful if he/she doesn't win?

    1. The Spirit Crew sounds a lot like the News Crew from the official AJ blog and nobody was upset, so I think it'll turn out great!

      Delete
    2. Hmm, well people lose things all the time. And just because you don't win doesn't mean your story is bad... >.>

  10. Hi Snowclaw! I wrote a short story about Mira a while ago, however, it does not completely relate to this topic. The short story is a bit like a conversation between Mira and another jammer...would that count? If not, I can just write a different one. x3

    1. Of course! I'd love to read it. :)

    2. That's awesome! Unfortunately I don't think I can submit it since it's way over 250 words. Haha....I'll see if I can shrink it down a bit. ^.^

  11. Eh, Snowy, I found a new glitch. When you open up the edit screen for your character, the loading sign goes away, but le screen still dark. -.-

  13. Hello Snowy! I sent in my entry. Its kind of mellow-dramatic, so I hope you enjoy. It basically explains briefly how Jamaa's Legends have affected me.

  14. Oooh, this sounds exciting! I'll enter...if I can find the time to write an article. ;)

  15. I found this really funny glitch with my friends n Greelys Inferno.
    If you get down to one heart and enter the boss gate with a phantom chasing you, you will get put to sleep during the phantom king cut-scene. You will re spawn with no health but nothing can hurt you. The phantom king won't be able to see you so your gonna need to use extra boomseeds to make him slam.

    Its a really fun glitch XD

  16. I've had that happen to me before! My bro once had no hearts, and I clicked the Phantom Door. He reappeared with no hearts and nothing saw him. He couldn't do anything... He was sooo mad at me. :3
