Golf Bag & Spirit Stones

Hey jammers! Sorry, school sometimes has to take over. Today's new item is the Golf Bag, sold at Jam Mart Furniture!

My computer is a little out-of-sorts today, so no giffy images, lo siento! Meanwhile, there have been some game updates to the moderating department - now AJHQ reminds you to block the misbehaving jammer. Always a good option, be sure to give that a try!



Thanks for sending this in Shalaka!
Brady Barr has released a brand new video about bees (they appear to be honey bees), so if you'd like to watch the video, be sure to head over to his lovely lab. Have you heard about the disappearance of massive amounts of bees, and CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder)?

If you're interested, try giving it a little research; bees are super important to our ecosystem, and we rely on them to pollinate our food crops. Meanwhile, I loved how HelpEndangeredSpecies had some "back in time" type pictures from Jamaa's past, so I brought back one of my own!

This was released back in November of 2010, and Mt. Shiveer was released in December! Weird to think about, huh?Notice the talk about Spirit Stones? Those used to be a large part of jamaasian lore, but slowly faded away. Luckily, us here at Animal Jam Spirit noticed the absence, and together we reminded AJHQ of how much we value the lore. Now one can find mention of Spirit Stones in stories on the Daily Explorer, and I couldn't be more excited. ^.^

I love that Animal Jam really responds to the will of the players. Hopefully it will be a game that stays long into the future. To wrap up today's post I have a collection of lovely art flowers!
It's funny AJHQ started using gifs around the same time Animal Jam Spirit has. If you'd like to see all the art, click here! And hopefully I'll see you in my wanderings of Jamaa. Happy jamming!


P.S. Do you have a complete set of plushies? Send a picture of them in a cool arrangement to animaljamspirit@gmail.com to become part of the grand plushie compilation! Join the halls of plushie fame.

    7. I won't block after I did block my buddy for saying some pretty mean things to me, and I also unbuddied her, about a month later I see her, and am like oh I remember her, I'm gonna ask why she said that, then I ask and she doesn't respond, and I'm like whaaaa, anyway I unblocked her after about 10 minutes of trying to ask her, and she was all like "I'm so sorry, my friends were being so mean to me when I said that and I must have blown my top, I've been trying to say sorryand you won't respond, please forgive me"
      So that's my story on why I don't block players

      Delete
    8. @Cutepup that's an awesome idea! If they're blocked they can't send you letters and if they don't send you letters, real or fake, you have no worries! :D

    9. Manxy instead of blocking them i troll them. My conversation with a scammer:

      Scammer- Hey you, It's my birthday and I want a bow. Gimme yours.
      Me- Oh I am very sorry, but the I don't have one. -takes off bow-
      Scammer- You just had one!
      Me- It must be a glitch.
      Scammer- IM REPORTING YOU FOR BEING A BULLY!
      Me- Oh is it all caps day?

    2. Spirit stones are the things that hold the life force of the animals in Jamaa, or used to be before they got all modern. I don't think they would just sell something like that, though.. And there aren't any pics of them because they were only in those stories on the beta site, which they sadly took off.

      Delete
    3. Yes, M P is right... But maybe they should sell small replicas, you know.. like they wouldn't sell the Statue of Liberty, but they do sell small replicas of them... XD

    4. OMG! I JUST HAD AN IDEA!!! WHAT IF IN A NEW ADVENTURE, THERE WAS A SPIRIT STONE FOR THE RHINOS OR GIRAFFES, AND THE PHANTOMS WERE TRYING TO DESTROY IT!!??! THERE WOULD BE ANIMALS OF THEM ALL GREY AND THEY WOULD ALL BE SLEEPING BECAUSE OF THE PHANTOMS HAD THEIR SPIRIT STORE!!!

  8. Hey jammers! To solve the mystery of "how to log into French servers," I sent AJHQ an email about it and they responded with this:

    "Thank you for contacting Animal Jam Headquarters!

    Our French servers are regionally locked and can only be logged in by those who are in specific geographic locations. If you are not in one of those locations, unfortunately, you will not be able to log into a French suggested world."

    So yeah. I guess the only way to get into a French server besides visiting France or other French-speaking countries is by following a friend in. Or... Being glitched there XD it's kinda sad, though. I wanted to practice French :c

    2. Oh that's disappointing :( So we can only enter a French server now if we live in a French-speaking country, like France and parts of Canada (I think). Now I can't learn French and be totally lost of what French Jammers are saying. DX lolz

    3. DARN!! That means I'll never be in the French server! D:

    4. My neighbor could log onto a French server, but I couldn't DX, I wonder if she did the glitch....

    5. That stinks! I guess the only reason we could get in was glitches and openings that need to be fixed :P

The Beta Days seem pawsome- especially that gigantic ALL JAMMER den. :D And I've noticed that AJHQ changed the reporting system- or whatever its called. o3o Oh yeah, now I know what a Spirit Stone actually is!

  13. Information about my story! PHANTOMS!! ^.^
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    In the early days of Jamaa (Jammers call it "the Beta Days"), the very first phantoms to be born (from Mira's tears about Zios' death in the Temple of Zios) were pure evil and heartless without an official society. They lived in the line of separation between Jamaa and their own Phantom Land, when Mira kicked them out of her land- aka Jamaa. Now the Phantom King has made changes and wants to control more areas, such as Jamaa and where Precious's (main character in my story) parents live. The time has changed for a very long time. Now the phantoms aren't savages who live in the complete wild. Now they live in phantom buildings and offices, such as the Phantom Quarters. The Phantoms now learn in Phantom Schools and work Phantom Jobs. So that's how Precious got to understand/trust phantom Freddy- phantoms developed a society and smarts over time, in other words.
    Hope this is at least somewhat helpful, and this is only corresponding to the story. :)

    2. Continuing from several posts ago! :)
      *Part 6: A New Life*

      Some hours passed by. I have defeated the Phantom King. I had to say my goodbyes Freddy. It was very hard for me to say goodbye to that phantom. It was hard to admit it, but I actually loved Freddy- that phantom had courage to fight his father (the Phantom King) and he saved my life. He told me he belonged in his phantom land and he wouldn't be destructive like his dad. He had to save his hometown. Now I was on the top of the roof with the portal to enter back into the Base Camp behind me. Sir was there. He used his powers to give me membership/higher status in society.

      Sir spoke, "Now everyone in Jamaa would know you, Precious, as the hero for everything." he stared at me. "No longer I couldn't defeat the Phantom King and solve the prophecy. You had to team up with the King's son, Freddy, and use your combined powers to defeat the King. You smart she-wolf." Sir paused and continued, " Greely knows. He doesn't hate me- as much anyways," Sir laughed for a moment and continued again. "He has improved of me choosing you and winning. He even told me: Good work, my brother. Now I'm not jealous of him being the chosen one- being an Alpha/Shaman, and not me."

      Delete
    3. Cool! Where can I read the whole story? ^.^

    4. *Part 6: A New Life* continued

      Sir and I entered the Portal and were back in the Adventure Base Camp. We were the only ones there; it's very late at night. Sir hugged me surprisingly. He ordered me to go and that we'll meet again sometime. So I went to Jamaa Twp. I didn't see Rosy and Twinkle there- my first friends in Jamaa. However, I saw the friends I made in my time in the Base Camp, training. "Wow," Flora, a nonmember wolf I had trained with, gasped as she saw me. "IT'S PRECIOUS EVERYBODY," Flora announced so all of Jamaa could hear. "SHE HAS DEFEATED THE PHANTOM KING- PRECIOUS IS OUR HERO!" It was followed by tons of cheering. I haven't even entered my den since I came back- yet.

      I perked my ears and smiled. The Phantom King and phantoms (not Freddy, of course) has made lots of Jamaasians turn into mean scammers, hackers, and bullies. Now that I've killed the phantom guards and defeated their King, it caused there to be way few awful Jammers. I no longer heard innocent Jamaasians shriek that they've been scammed, hacked, and/or bullied. It made me smile: I've changed Jamaa to make it a better and safer place. I saw the 2 Arctic Wolves with long rare red and green spike collars on. The same ones as my first day here; haven't seen them since. They were friendly towards the Arctic Wolf they bullied when I first came. She had on a short rare blue spike collar. She smiled; the one with the red giggled at the one with the green. "You're hilarious, Snowflake!" I wagged my tail; they congratulated me.

  24. I think that after Mira made phantoms before she invited animals to live in jamaa, she built a force field around jamaa to keep phantoms out.. but that kept animals out too. so she hired the alphas to defeat the pahtnoms and get spirit stones to let the animals into her new land.
    But, then, the phantom king had a son who was a good guy and i'lll write this story later…..
