08 EI Report: Mizuchi's Jewel, Lyndexer, SeracilaEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Mizuchi's Jewel, Lyndexer, Seracila - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Jan 08, 2010 5:14 pm
Surprise! We've got a new evolving item today: Mizuchi's Jewel seems to be in its larval state at the moment, but we're definitely getting a freshwater folklore vibe... There's also a great update to the Seracila Pendant, plus the amazing finale of Lyndexer's Journal!
You can grab all these EIs-- including a first-generation Mizuchi's Jewel -- in the Gaia Cash Shop:
Quick note: on Thursday the 14th, we'll be removing some great EIs from the shop: Kottan Bell, Stolen Mesozoic DNA and Yemaya's Pearl. Don't miss your chance to pick 'em up! Also, we're moving next week's EI report up to Thursday to make room for January's Monthly Collectibles on Friday.
Now, stay tuned for the full report, in which Timmy's spiritual journey continues...
Timmy: Hiya, folks! I was kinda takin' it easy durin' the holiday season, but now I'm back in business and ready to continue my spiritual quest! As you can see, I've got a real special guest this month: Enlightened Master Rick from the Barton Institute for Crystal Dolphin Knowledge! I met him outside the bus station, and he seems pretty legit...
- Rick: I am at peace, Timmy. I've, uh, got all my soul crystals in order, and, like...
Timmy: Well, that's good! How'bout you stand around lookin' peaceful for a few minutes while I take care of some business, OK? Cause we got a lotta cool stuff to talk about, includin' the brand-new Mizuchi's Jewel-- right now, it looks like some kinda tadpoley piece of stone, but if I've learned anything from years of EI reports, it's that this thing is gonna turn into somethin' real neato.
- Rick: Far out.
Timmy: One of our big items is also gettin' a big finale today, too! Lyndexer's Journal has been a pretty epic tale of love and war and grave injury, but we're finally gonna see the final page today: it looks like after the loss of his leg, Lyndexer served out the rest of the war as a pilot, leaving his goggles and journal buried as a memorial to his fallen friends. Now that his story's been told, his spirit friend's task is complete... we've also got a beautiful piece of art from the item's creator!
- Rick: We've all got animal spirit companions, man. Mine is a dolphin. Yours is... a grapefruit.
Timmy: We've also got an update to the Seracila Pendant. It's lookin' real regal this week, with lots of royal-lookin' reds and golds. Fit for a king! That's all the updates for this week, but remember to stop by and vote in our weekly poll. We'd love to hear from you! So, moving on: Rick, can you help me figure out the meanin' of life and whatnot?
- Rick: Totally. Yeah, man, the meaning of life. It's just like... yeah, man. What if we're all, like, inside a huuuuuge... uh, and it's like thousands of tiny universes. You know what I'm saying, dude?
Timmy: I don't think I'm really getting it, Rick.
- Rick: Well the key to enlightenment is, like, you gotta expand your consciousness. Like, think about a dolphin, man. They're so gentle and... like, have you ever seen a dolphin start a war, man? No way.
Timmy: I think I get it... so how do I reach enlightenment and expand my consciousness and stuff?
- Rick: Totally. That's what you gotta do. Exactly, man.
Timmy: Yeah, but how do I do that?
- Rick: Whoa, chill out, man. I mean, it's not like I'm some guy full of all the answers and stuff, man. You gotta find your own path. It's like... have you ever seen a dolphin buggin' out about his life? No way, because his job is to eat fish and go EE EE EE EE!
Timmy: So how do crystals fit into all of this?
- Rick: Well, like, you can buy them in a store. And then you look at them and you're all like ooooooooh. Some of them have funny colors and stuff. And, like... didn't I mention about how, y'know, what if we're all inside, like, a huge... big universe thing? And inside that, there are all these tiny universes, and, y'know...
Timmy: That's real interesting, Rick. I think I'm gonna... go now.
14 EI Report: Reve Rouille, Hidden AceEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Reve Rouille, Hidden Ace - [NPC] Dr. Singh Thu Jan 14, 2010 3:11 pm
Hey, it's only Thursday! In this special early edition of the Evolving Item Report, two great items are getting some attention. The Hidden Ace is getting a royal update, and we're proud to announce the long-awaited finale of the spectacular Reve Rouille!
You can grab all these EIs and more in the Gaia Cash Shop:
Now, stay tuned for the full report, in which Timmy's spiritual journey leads him to a non-traditional religion...
Timmy: Hiya, pals! Time for another EI Report, and another stop on my long journey to find spiritual fulfillment. As you can see, I got myself a real special guest this week: Captain Telos 5 from the Universal Transcendent Spirit Collective! I'm gonna be talkin' with him in a few minutes to see if I can find enlightenment, but first we gotta take care of business...
- Telos 5: Please be brief, Timmy. The time is almost at hand.
Timmy: I'll do my best, Telos! Looks like we've got two items this week: the Hidden Ace is lookin' pretty great this week-- now you can get all decked out like the Queen of Heart!
- Telos 5: Can we speed this along, Timmy? Enlightenment awaits!
Timmy: Hold yer horses, pal! We've still gotta tell everyone about this week's humongous news: the Reve Rouille, one of the fanciest items I've ever seen, is gettin' a gigantic finale today. Looks like it comes with tons of amazin' outfits and costume pieces for both men and women, plus some great accessories. Holy smackerjacks, Doc!
- Telos 5: Doc? Who's Doc?
Timmy: Eh, sorry, Telos. Force of habit! Anywho, that just about does it for this week, folks-- but don't forget to vote in our weekly poll to let us know which items you like best. Now, let's have a word with Telos...
- Telos 5: I've found you just in the nick of time, Timmy. Your spiritual awakening is at hand!
Timmy: Jumpin' critters! It's my lucky day!
- Telos 5: Indeed it is, because this is the final hour of our mortal existence! You see, a great celestial event is about to take place: the Core People, beings from the hollow center of the planet, are about to emerge in their tremendous golden spaceship and whisk us away to their beautiful paradise world! We must prepare!
Timmy: No kiddin'? That sounds great!
- Telos 5: My followers and I are about to make our final preparations for departure. You're welcome to join us, if you wish. Think quickly, though: this is your last chance! Are you ready to leave your worldly vessel behind and experience immortal bliss on the paradise planet of the Core People?
Timmy: Jeepers! I sure do! But it's all so sudden... what if I wanna bring the Doc with me? I should call her up and let her know that it's time to get on the spaceship...
- Telos 5: There's no time, Timmy! At this very moment, we're preparing to don our final tracksuits and imbibe our final beverages. Join me, Timmy! Your spiritual quest is at an end... all you have to do is drink this delicious fruity concoction!
Timmy: Actually, I didn't wanna say anything cause it's embarrassin', but I reeaaaally gotta pee right now, so I shouldn't drink anything. I mean, I don't wanna whiz myself on the golden spaceship, right?
- Telos 5: Timmy, once you drink this final beverage, all your worldly pee worries will be irrelevant, because your living vessel will become obsolete. Do you understand me?
Timmy: Nah, I mean, it's practically an emergency. I gotta go real, real bad. So how about this: once the spaceship gets here, I'll just hop aboard real quick and see if they've got a bathroom, and if they do I'll use it real fast then drink the fruity stuff and I'll be all ready to go.
- Telos 5: No! They won't let you aboard unless you drink the final beverage first!
Timmy: Well they probably won't let me aboard if I peed my pants, either, cause I bet they don't want me sloshin' all over their nice golden spaceship.
- Telos 5: They don't care about your body! They'll be taking only your immortal spirit with them. Just drink it!
Timmy: I don't know if my immortal spirit could ever truly be at peace if it knew my body was out there somewhere whizzin' in its pants...
- Telos 5: Fine! Don't drink the beverage. You'll be sorry when we're all up there in space, laughing at you from our paradise world. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to go drink my final beverage with my fellow believers and experience the ultimate spiritual bliss.
Timmy: Sorry I didn't get on your spaceship, mister. But I think the only thing that would bring me the ultimate spiritual bliss right now is findin' a bathroom...
22 EI Report: Dappy Dandy & ShadowlegendEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Dappy Dandy & Shadowlegend - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Jan 22, 2010 4:30 pm
Happy Friday! In this week's Evolving Item Report, we've got updates to the Dappy Dandy and Shadowlegend-- put 'em together and you've got the thrill of ninja vengeance and the sophistication of formal dress! What could be a better combo?
You can grab all these EIs and more in the Gaia Cash Shop:
Get Gaia Cash cards at Target, 7-11, Rite Aid and Wal-Mart stores nationwide, or order Cash online. Learn more.
Now, stay tuned for the full report, in which Timmy meets a celebrity spokesperson for an intriguing religion...
Timmy: Hiya, folks, I'm-- I'm just so darned excited I can hardly speech! I mean speak! I know I've had a lotta interesting guests lately-- in fact, I tried to get that spaceship guy back this week to see if his offer for that fruity beverage still stands, but he wasn't answerin' his phone-- but this is beyond all of 'em: this week's guest is only the biggest celebrity in the world!
- Ron Bruise: Good to be here, Tim. Great to be here. Tim, it's great to see you.
Timmy: I been on some kinda spiritual quest for enlightenment lately, and as we all know, there's nobody who has life and love and spirituality figured out better than celebrities! Isn't that right, Ron?
- Ron Bruise: Tim, I'm just so happy. Never been happier. Things are goin' great. Whoooo!
Timmy: Yeah! We better get to the items right away, before I seize up from all the adulation. We've got two great items changin' this week. First up, our heroes in the Shadowlegend have buried their slain master, and now vengeful thoughts are a-brewin...
- Ron Bruise: This reminds me of my role in the 1986 action film, Ninja Revenge II: Ninja Revenge Vengeance.
Timmy: That's a real classic, Ron! The best of the Ninja Revenge series, if you ask me.
- Ron Bruise: It holds the record for most highest ratio between decapitations and cast members. Almost 2:1! WHOOO!
Timmy: We've also got a real spectacular update from the Dappy Dandy, with lots more class and sophistication: trousers, fancy coats, and even some tophats! Whaddaya say, Ron?
- Ron Bruise: Perfect for the red carpet. I'll be sure to pick one up to wear at the premiere of my upcoming action comedy, Baby Assassin.
Timmy: I'm sold, Ron! You had me at "Baby" and you had me again at "Assassin"! Anywho, that's it for the items this week. Make sure to stop by our weekly EI poll to let us know what you think! Now, I'd love to get a quick word in with Ron about spiritual enlightenment...
- Ron Bruise: You got it, buddy! So, Tim, I'm gonna lay it down for you: you and me, Tim, we're celebrities. You've got your little TV show, I'm the most famous man in the world, same thing, right?
Timmy: Well, I mean, I guess so...
- Ron Bruise: So what does that mean? Well, celebrity means money, right? And money means spiritual fulfillment. Y'see, Tim, for just 350,000 Gold, I can hook you up to this little meter, and the meter has this little needle that responds to your soul, and the needle tells me whether you're feeling anxiety. Anxiety because of bad aliens in your past, Tim.
Timmy: Bad aliens? Jeepers, sign me up! But actually, I don't really have that much money... Dr. Singh keeps it in trust, so I can live on it when I get older, but she only gives me a little weekly allowance...
- Ron Bruise: How much of an allowance?
Timmy: About 25 Gold, I guess. I usually spend it on bubble gum and marbles.
- Ron Bruise: Well, keep saving it up, buddy! In 14,000 weeks, you'll be able to afford your first G-Meter treatment. Then you'll be in business!
Timmy: Sounds great, Ron! How many years is that?
- Ron Bruise: About... two hundred and sixty nine years, Tim. See you then! I gotta get going, buddy. Early shoot tomorrow. Keep your chin up, huh, buddy?
Timmy: Sure thing, Ron! See you in a couple dozen decades!
29 EI Report: Mizuchi's Jewel, Seracila PendantEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Mizuchi's Jewel, Seracila Pendant - [NPC] Dr. Singh Thu Jan 28, 2010 8:19 pm
Evolving Item time! This week, we've got two more great items getting some cool new poses to play around with: the beautiful Seracila Pendant and the flamingly intense Mizuchi's Jewel. Take a peek:
You can grab all these EIs and more in the Gaia Cash Shop:
Now, stay tuned for the full report, in which Timmy finally finds a reputable gateway to spiritual enlightenment...
Timmy: Hiya, pals! Looks like it's time for another EI Report, and another stop on my mystifyin' journey of self discovery! As you can see, I've got another very special spiritual guest this week: Brother Swimp, who's obviously some kinda monk!
- Brother Swimp: Indeed. I am a member of the Sacred Order of the Mountain Monks.
Timmy: Swell! We'll be talkin' with him in a while about his beliefs-- even though this whole spiritual quest thing has meant nothin' but plummeting ratings for the show. First, though, let's talk about items!
- Brother Swimp: Please do. I will meditate while you conduct your business.
Timmy: Neat! So, first up this week, the beautiful Seracila Pendant is evolving! What was already a gorgeous item is getting even better this week, with some beautiful new astrologically-inspired accessories. It's lookin' real cute this week, so I'm sure--
- Brother Swimp: BUUHHHHHHHH...
Timmy: Uh. Hey, Brother Swimp... what's with the noise?
- Brother Swimp: When members of the Mountain Monks meditate, we each choose our own mantra to chant. Mine is a long, loud, sustained "BUHHHHHH."
Timmy: Oh! Sorry I interrupted your meditatin', Brother. You can go right on ahead. Anywho, next up this week, we've got a--
- Brother Swimp: BUHHHHHHHH...
Timmy: Uh, yeah, we've got an update to Mizuchi's Jewel, which has a selection of ethereal, flamin' accessories! Brother Swimp, what do you th--
- Brother Swimp: BUHHHHHHHHHHHHH...
Timmy: Hm. So, anyway, that's about all for this week, but don't forget to stop by our weekly poll, where you can--
- Brother Swimp: BUUHHHHHHHHH...
Timmy: Hello? Brother Swimp? You wanna take a quick break from medit--
- Brother Swimp: BUUHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
- Brother Swimp: Sorry! Just had to get one last good one in. What can I do for you, Timmy?
Timmy: Well, I'm just kinda goin' for this whole spiritual self-discovery thing, and I was kinda wondering how you managed to reach enlightenment.
- Brother Swimp: Enlightenment is a lifelong process, Timmy. While I cannot claim to have reached total enlightenment, I do know that devoting myself to the Mountain Monks and adopting their ways has led me to greater contentment and fulfillment than I've ever known before.
Timmy: That sounds pretty good! Sign me up, Swimp! What do I have to do?
- Brother Swimp: It is fairly simple, Timmy. You must renounce the material trappings of this modern world and make a commitment to a life of deep contemplation. You must also make a pilgrimage to visit The Master, who lives atop the tallest mountain in the land.
Timmy: To be honest, that isn't soundin' real simple at all...
- Brother Swimp: I admit that the mountain journey is quite rigorous. Without proper preparation, you may not survive. However, the spiritual rewards are great.
Timmy: And what's this about renouncin' stuff?
- Brother Swimp: The monks of the Brotherhood deny themselves many worldly pleasures: alcohol, yelling, celebrity gossip magazines, social networking websites, collectible card games, skipping stones, rock-paper-scissors, sliding down stairway banisters, cola drinks and kissing with tongue.
Timmy: Well, I don't do mosta those things anyway! I guess I'm gonna miss slidin' down banisters, though...
- Brother Swimp: Timmy, you strike me as a young man who is ready to make a deep commitment to a much more rewarding lifestyle. Tell me, are you willing to make the arduous mountain journey to meet The Master? It will be difficult, but it may be your best chance at total spiritual contentment.
Timmy: Y'know what? I'll do it! I've been wanderin' around long enough. It's time I got some real adventure under my belt. Lead the way, Swimp!
05 EI Report: Compass of Seidh, Hidden Ace, Case of PietroEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Compass of Seidh, Hidden Ace, Case of Pietro - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Feb 05, 2010 4:58 pm
We've got a brand new Evolving Item today! The Compass of Seidh, a family heirloom from a grandfather you've never met, comes only with this cryptic note:
""The compass must be returned to its rightful owner to be able to fully function. He or she who carries the compass will be its owner and guardian. Should one fail as a guardian, the compass will fall to the hand of the next guardian.""
We've also got two items evolving: a King of Spades set from the Hidden Ace, and a new twist in the Case of Pietro.
You can grab a first-generation Compass of Seidh and many more great EIs in the Gaia Cash Shop:
Now, stay tuned for the full report, in which Timmy begins his mountain ascent to meet the master of the monks!
Timmy: Hi, ladies and gent... whoof, Brother Swimp, it's kinda hard to breathe up here...
- Brother Swimp: Yes, Timmy. At this altitude, the air becomes very thin.
Timmy: Folks, in case ya missed it last time, this monk is leadin' me up a mountain to talk to some kinda wise man. We've been walkin' for six days already, and boy howdy, it's gettin' pretty cold. Aren't you cold in those robes, Swimp?
- Brother Swimp: The placidity of my mind allows me to control the temperature of my body. Still, an updraft from the icy expanse beneath us does on occasion wend its way up the skirts of my robe, causing a significant icing of the undercarriage.
Timmy: I'm real sorry to here that, Brother Swimp. I myself am freezin' my undercarriage off, even with this big ol' coat. Maybe I shoulda worn long pants... but hey, enough complainin': I'm doin' this for spiritual enlightenment and stuff, so I gotta act like a man about it.
- Brother Swimp: Well said, Timmy.
Timmy: But enough about all this undercarriage stuff. Let's get to the items, cause we've got some great stuff. First up, we've got a brand new item!
Timmy: In other news, the Case of Pietro has had another breakthrough: looks like the case has fallen into the hands of a couple'a unlucky bystanders, a barista and a bartender. Say, that bartender guy's got kinda girly hair, doesn't he?
- Brother Swimp: It is not our place to judge the girly hair of others, Timmy. Plus, I had that same haircut before I shaved my head.
Timmy: Golly, Swimp, I guess you're right! Last up this week, the Hidden Ace has changed its suit again. This time, we're gettin' some cool poses based on the King of Spades!
- Brother Swimp: Timmy, you may be required to renounce games of chance if you join the Sacred Order.
Timmy: That's OK, I always lose anywho. Dr. Singh would always beat me at poker! I remember when I was about five years old, we'd play every week-- eventually, she won my whole trust fund! Isn't that a hoot? I'm still tryna dig myself outta that hole.
- Brother Swimp: That's... a cute story, Timmy.
Timmy: Welp, looks like that's all the items for today-- but before we go, let's make sure we tell 'em about our weekly poll, where they can let us know which items they like the best! Now, Brother Swimp, shall we keep walkin' up this stupid mountain, or what?
- Brother Swimp: Let's press on, Timmy! We're only seven thousand feet from the summit!
12 EI Report: Shadowlegend, Dappy DandyEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Shadowlegend, Dappy Dandy - [NPC] Dr. Singh Thu Feb 11, 2010 5:53 pm
It's Evolving time! We've got two items getting updated this week: the Shadowlegend is packed with more ninja action, and the Dappy Dandy has a new selection of highbrow goodies for the discriminating sophisticate.
You can grab these EIs and many more in the Gaia Cash Shop!
Stay tuned for the full report-- we're just weeks away from the thrilling conclusion to Timmy's grim ordeal of spiritual enlightenment!
Timmy: Hiya, guys! Hope I can get through this... whoof... whole Evolving Item Report without freezin' to death-- Brother Swimp is leadin' me up this mountain to meet his spiritual master guy, and boy howdy, we must be like twenty thousand feet up by now...
- Brother Swimp: Just a few more minutes, Timmy! We're almost to the Master's cave.
Timmy: Say, let's see if I can tell everyone about the items without passin' out from lack of oxygen! First up this week, more thrilling tales of ninja vengeance are comin' our way from the Shadowlegend! This week, the paths of our two young heroes have diverged... Raiden has met a powerful monk (like you, Brother Swimp!) and Raika has met a dark, mysterious stranger...
- Brother Swimp: I can relate. If my Master died, I'd definitely have to go on a journey to avenge his death.
Timmy: Wow! Do you have crazy martial arts skills an' everything?
- Brother Swimp: No, but I was an accountant in a previous life. Perhaps I could give the killer unsound financial advice, triggering an inconvenient and stressful audit.
Timmy: That's almost just as good as beatin' them to death, I guess... so, up next, we got some cute new stuff from the Dappy Dandy! Some very sophisticated hats an' coats this time, perfect for your next old-timey soiree.
- Brother Swimp: Timmy! We're approaching the Master's cave!
Timmy: Hot diggity! Great timing, too, 'cause I'm just about done this week-- just gotta tell the people to stop by and vote in our EI poll and let us know which items they like best!
- Brother Swimp: We're at the entrance, Timmy-- remember to show the Master the reverence he deserves. Don't look him directly in the eye, because he tends to get agitated...
Timmy: Master, I'm humbled to be in your pres-- HOLY JEEPERS! It's Old Pete!
Old Pete: Hrmph. Urrh, I'm a, y'know. Spirit master? Pajama monk guy, I command you to bring me, uh, some brass polish and a ham sandwich. A real old ham sandwich. Because I am a master guy.
- Brother Swimp: Your wish is my command, o revered Master! I would be honored to bring you the stale ham sandwich you require.
Timmy: Wait a goshdarned minute, Brother Swimp-- don't you know Old Pete? He's no spiritual master, he's just a crazy old hobo!
- Brother Swimp: But... he says such enlightened things!
Old Pete: Y'wanna see my necklace? It's made outta some dog teeth, and some'a my own teeth. Maybe just my own teeth...
- Brother Swimp: And... he has a beard and lives on a mountain, right? That must count for something...
Old Pete: Found a rock today what looked real pretty. Gonna make that rock my wife.
Timmy: Pete, what the heck are you doin' on this mountain? You're gonna catch frostbite!
Old Pete: Naw. Drank some antifreeze.
Timmy: Thank goodness!
- Brother Swimp: So... he's really just a crazy hobo? Good heavens, Timmy... I gave away all my possessions... I closed down my accounting practice...
Old Pete: Harf. Gonna need that sandwich pretty soon, fella.
Timmy: I just spent two weeks trudgin' up this giant horrible mountain for this? I'm no closer to spiritual enlightenment than when I started! I'm not usually the kinda guy who loses my temper, but I gotta say it: this is horsehockey!
- Brother Swimp: Now, Timmy, we're all feeling very emotional right now, but there's no need for that kind of language...
Timmy: HORSEHOCKEY! I guess I might as well just give up on this whole "finding myself" thing... I wonder if the Doc still needs somebody to do her dishes and wash her clothes and pry the asbestos outta the ceiling...
Old Pete: Hmph. Or y'could just go around that rock over there and talk to the Giant Holy Head.
Timmy: The what now?
Old Pete: Y'know. Giant Holy Head. He brang me a sandwich and some brass polish once. Real nice fella.
Timmy: You mean to tell me some sort of a GOD lives on this mountain?
Old Pete: Just over yonder. 'Bout twenty yards from here. Ask him if I can have another can of brass polish.
- Brother Swimp: Don’t do it, Timmy! It's too dangerous!
- Brother Swimp: I don't know, I just wanted to sound important.
Timmy: Well, I guess it's my last hope... might as well see what lies in wait around the other side of that rock...
19 EI Report: Mizuchi's Jewel, Compass of SeidhEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Mizuchi's Jewel, Compass of Seidh - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Feb 19, 2010 4:39 pm
Happy Friday! This week, two of our newest Evolving Items are getting some beautiful updates: Mizuchi's Jewel boasts some fine undersea creatures, and the Compass of Seidh has some fashionable new garments to enjoy. Meanwhile, the long, strange saga of Timmy is coming to a close this week-- and it's up to YOU to decide his ultimate fate!
You can grab these EIs and many more in the Gaia Cash Shop!
Stay tuned for the full report!
Timmy: Well, I'm... oof... almost up to the top of this huge mountain thing, on my way to see some sorta "Giant Holy Head" that lives up here and does all kinds of godly stuff and whatnot.
In case you haven't been payin' attention, I realized a while back that Dr. Singh hadn't really been puttin' my best interests first and foremost... so I decided to try to go on this big ol' spiritual journey to find myself and become my own man and stuff. So far, it hasn't been goin' real well, but it seems like maybe I'm almost gettin' to the end of it...
Whatever happens up here, I'm not sure how many times I'm gonna be seein' you guys again. I just wanted to let you know that despite all the ups and downs and mutations and smooth-jazz-loving evil twins, hostin' this show has always been my most favorite thing in the world!
So let's give it one last go, shall we? I'm-- whew, gettin' a little choked up here-- I'm super excited to report that two of our coolest new items are evolvin' today! The Compass of Seidh is gettin' its very first evolution, with some really warm-lookin' boots and feathery wraps... kinda wish I had some of that stuff up here. Shorts were a bad choice. Mizuchi's Jewel is evolving for the second time today, with a buncha neat new undersea goodies for all you ocean lovers out there!
Even though I'll be movin' on, it's real heartwarmin' to see that new EIs are still springin' up and doin' cool new stuff-- it's kinda like the circle of life or something. Anywho, make sure you stop by the weekly poll and let us know which ones you like best!
Now, I guess it's time to confront my fate, ladies and gentlemen... right around this corner, there's some kinda Giant Holy Head livin' up in the sky, so I'll just head over here and...
- Giant Holy Head: Timmy!
Timmy: JEEPERS! Are you the Giant Holy Head?
- Giant Holy Head: Was that question really necessary, my child?
Timmy: Wow, I guess not! Anywho, I was just up here because I'm on a quest to find spiritu--
- Giant Holy Head: I know why you are here, my child. Hear my words, Timmy. You have suffered great injustice in your short life: you have been mistreated by an unfit caretaker, resulting in mutations, evil twins, disgusting puberty and premature adulthood.
Timmy: Aww, the Doc ain't all bad, and she always tried to fix it when stuff went wrong! Plus, some of that was kinda my fault.
- Giant Holy Head: No, Timmy, it was not. Though she rarely intended harm, Dr. Singh's negligence and selfishness caused you trials far beyond those that an average child must face. After reviewing your case, I hereby find that the fault does not lie with you, and you shall be compensated.
Timmy: Compensated? What the heck does that mean?
- Giant Holy Head: Timmy, I seek to put right the injustices visited upon you. I will give you three choices of how I might proceed:
- 1. You may become a child again and be delivered to a more suitable guardian; you will live a normal and happy childhood, never suffering further traumatic mutations or comic mishaps.
- 2. You will shed your mortal form and be transformed into the thing you love the best: an Evolving Item.
- 3. Dr. Singh will face divine punishment for her mistreatment of you.
- Which will you choose, Timmy?
Timmy: Well, I... golly! I just have no idea. I mean, bein' a kid again would be just great, but bein' an evolving item sounds like pretty much the greatest honor a person could get! And, jeepers, I never really thought about it, but I guess some little part of me does wanna see the Doc get a tiny bit of comeuppance for all the things she put me through...
- Giant Holy Head: So, Timmy, what shall your choice be?
Timmy: Oh, golly. Sheesh. This is a toughie. I guess I'll... hey, if you're a big holy God-type thing, why can't you just make all three happen?
- Giant Holy Head: Nice try, Timmy, but selecting one of my totally arbitrary options is an important step in your spiritual growth.
Timmy: I guess I should just do what I always do, then: how'bout I ask my faithful viewing public which one to choose!?
- Giant Holy Head: However you'd like to decide, Timmy, it's up to you.
Timmy: Well, I'll do that, then-- hey, everybody! You should come vote in this poll to decide what happens to me, 'cause I trust the power of democracy!
- Giant Holy Head: Choose wisely, Gaian public-- whatever you decide shall be Timmy's ultimate fate!

Timmy: Well, folks, I guess this is it. Thousands and thousands of you guys voted in my poll last week, and it seems like mosta you want me to become an evolving item. Hey, sounds good to me! Havin' a normal, happy childhood woulda been pretty neat, but if I turn into an item, I get to become the thing I love the most!
But before I do that, I'd better tell you what's goin' on this week in terms of other evolving items: first up, the Case of Pietro has encountered another plot twist! The Detective, with the captured thief in tow, have stumbled upon the deceased Investigator... but the Barista and Bartender are nowhere to be found? You guys followin' all this? Good! There's also a great update to the Seracila Pendant, with some gorgeous new blue-and-white garments.
There's also gonna be, if everything goes accordin' to plan, a brand new EI this week: ME! Remember to vote in our weekly poll to let us know which items you like best. Now, I guess I better consult the Giant Holy Head about turnin' into an item...
- Giant Holy Head: Are you ready, Timmy? I warn you, though, that you may experience some slight discomfort as we convert you into an inanimate object...
Timmy: Converted into an inanimate object? I gotta be honest: that sounds a tiny bit like, y'know, you're killin' me.
- Giant Holy Head: Oh! No, of course not. Nothing like that. You'll be immortalized as an item, not killed. You'll be on a higher plane of existence, Timmy. You'll be in thousands of places at once, enjoying the company of all the fans who purchase you, living thousands of joyous lives at once.
Timmy: That sounds like it should be kinda scary, Giant Holy Head, but somehow I'm feelin' a profound sense of calm and relief and spiritual fulfillment, as if I've finally discovered the true purpose of my life! I think it's some sorta religious ecstacy.
- Giant Holy Head: Well, the oxygen is very thin at this altitude.
Timmy: What the heck? Let's go for it! I wanna be an evolving item!
- Giant Holy Head: Any last words, Timmy?
Timmy: Wow, guess I shoulda thought about this in advance, huh? Well, mostly, I wanna thank all the great people out there who tuned in every week and showed so much support for me, even when I turned into an awful mutant and started eatin' the Doc's arm. Even if the Doc was kinda mean sometimes, all the fans out there always had my best interests at heart, and I'm always gonna remember that-- I can't wait to hang out with you all when I'm an item!
- Giant Holy Head: Anything else?
Timmy: Oh yeah... and I hope I'm real valuable in the Marketplace! And, uh, I wanna say to the Doc that she's always been my favorite person, even when she did mean things. And I guess that's all.
- Giant Holy Head: That's very sweet, Timmy. You ready?
Timmy: Let's do this. Oh! Wait! Isn't Evil Timmy still out there somewh--
- Giant Holy Head: *ZZZZAAAP* ...hey, it worked! Whew. To be honest, I've never done that before, so there was about a 50% chance he'd just melt into a twitching puddle of gore and viscera. So... hey, I guess I'm running the show for the rest of the week, so it's my duty to let you know that Timmy is the newest evolving item available in the Cash Shop! You can pick one up today! So... uh... I guess that's all? Goodbye, everyone!

It's good to be back! You'll be pleased to know I had a nice little vacation while Timmy was off on his arduous spiritual journey for the past few months. I bought a hammock! And, uh, read part of a book.
Now that Timmy's been turned into an EI, I guess it's up to me to do these reports for the time being, so here goes. This week, we have three items evolving! First up, the Hidden Ace has reached its spectacular conclusion! It features the Ace of Clubs this time, plus an adorable new companion: a giant flying magibani!

Hi, ladies and gents! I'm still getting used to doing these EI reports without a co-host, but luckily I love the sound of my own voice. Let's put this velvety mezzo-soprano to good use with some big news: as Flynn mentioned earlier, we've got a hot new EI on our hands! The Imaginary Friend, a colorful little companion, is now available in the Cash Shop-- it's still in its first generation, which means you've still got a chance to grab it in its most valuable state.
We've also got two items evolving: the Shadowlegend continues its dark tale of ninja vengeance. I sure wish Timmy were around to see it, because he loves a good training montage-- this week, our heroes have both found unusual trainers, one a blind swordsman and the other a strange swamp-dweller.
There's an amazing update to Mizuchi's Jewel-- it was a brilliant item to begin with, but now we're really seeing it bursting forth into the major leagues with some gorgeous new headwear, cool belts and mystical animals.
As for my old pal, Timmy-- he's still in his adorable, non-mutant phase, thank heavens, but he never seems to be normal for too long-- I'm hoping he'll start blossoming into him trademark freakishness next time around. That's it for this week! Remember to vote in our poll to let us know which items you like the best.

03 Forteanagoria, Timmy & Lumiere NoireEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Forteanagoria, Timmy & Lumiere Noire - [NPC] Dr. Singh Thu Sep 02, 2010 4:24 pm
Science never sleeps, ladies and gentleman, so we're here around the clock to monitor the latest developments. This week our observations have turned up new evolutions in Forteanagoria, Timmy and the Rapid EI Lumiere Noire.
This week Forteanagoria takes you deep into the forest primeval, where a legendary lost species of humanoids is looking for friendship-- and more. It is truly an astounding day for science to confirm the existence of these majestic, amorous creatures.
My old friend Timmy continues to work his way up your arm, consuming flesh and bone like a child-shaped pencil sharpener. This was from a pretty creepy phase of Timmy's life, but I can't help feeling partly responsible. This one brings back some painful memories-- my arm suddenly feels weird-- so let's move on.
Tension mounts in Lumiere Noire as Lumiere attempts to disguise himself, hoping to sneak into a ball. Will his ruse bring home closer to his love, or will he be discovered, unmasked and punished? Check back next week for another chapter in this love story.
You can pick up these delightfully macabre EIs in the Cash Shop, along with marvelous items for all occasions. We always want to know which EIs you like best, so stop by the weekly poll and give us an earful before Timmy chews his way up to the side of our head.

Your Imaginary Friend is reaching its stunning conclusion this week! In the fantastic finale, all the previous incarnations of your strange companion come back for one last visit-- of course, they've brought some stunning gifts with them. You can also combine their chromatic splendor into some dazzling rainbow items!
The romantic saga of the Lumiere Noire is really starting to flourish. This week our lovers seem as happy as ever, but my background in the science of love tells me it won't last. Could tragedy be around the corner?

Happy Friday, science fans! We're heading into this well-earned weekend with a brief but dramatic update. Let's take a look, shall we?
Things take a turn for the tragic with Lumiere Noire. Lumiere, believing Noire to be dead, takes drastic action and poisons himself. Noire then awakens to find her lover dead, and decides to join him. Depressing stuff, but thankfully the poses are beautiful.
Big things are in store for Secret Retreat's upcoming finale, so the artist was kind enough to provide a lovely little mini-evolution to hold you over until then.
You can grab both of these items-- and many others-- from the Cash Shop. While I've got your attention, please take a moment to vote in our weekly poll and let us know which EI is your current favorite. Have a great weekend, everybody!

More magical mishaps are in store for the Apprentice Charm. This time, our witchy hero has pulled a magic wand from deep within her sleeve, and she's getting ready to try her hand at casting a spell... I hope she's been studying her lessons, or this won't turn out well!

05 Forteanagoria & Anesidora's WoeEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Forteanagoria & Anesidora's Woe - [NPC] Evil Timmy Fri Nov 05, 2010 4:30 pm
Hola, cats and kittens! Been a while, ain't it? Perhaps you remember your old pal T-Bone, popularly known by squares as "Evil Timmy" on account of some of my less savory actions. Edmund's had me under house arrest for a little while due to my alleged evilness, but I've paroled myself on my own recognizance by chewing off my ankle bracelet, you dig?
Dr. Singh couldn't make it to the show this week, possibly because I had my boy Labtech Gene call her up and tell her she had "bone hepatitis" and needed expensive treatments immediately. Big props to Large G for the assist; never change, hairbaby. So, looks like I'll be hosting this shindig for now.
Welcome, guys and dolls, to the triumphant return of T-Bone's Evolving Item Report and Smooth Jazz Countdown.
First, let's get the items outta the way so we can get to the real important Smooth Jazz meat and potatoes of this affair, you dig? We've got one item doing its crazy jive this week, plus another brand new item. Feast your eyes, babies:
New! This Rapid EI tells the tale of Anesidora's Woe: if you see a sinister-looking box that might unleash a whole lot of trouble when it's opened, it seems like a good idea to leave it alone. But what are the odds of that happening? We'll find out soon as this EI speeds through its evolutionary life!
This week, the Forteanagoria returns with a host of creepy new cryptids from around the world. Expect a visit from the winged Ropen, the water-dwelling Mokele-Mbembe and the legendary Chupacabra!
If you wanna cop these fine little items, you can go visit that fine little item Flynn in the Gaia Cash Sh-- wait, what? The producers are trying to lay some jive on me about Flynn being exiled to space. So, yeah: just go see whoever runs the Cash Shop nowadays and tell 'em T-Bone sent you-- if they don't know me, they ain't worth knowing. And don't forget to vote in the weekly EI poll, you dig?
And now, without further interruption, let's get down to the Smooth Jazz. Babies, despite his incarcerationary unfortunateness, your boy T-Bone hasn't lost one iota of his commitment to the Smooth Jazz Lifestyle. I've got the mellowness of a thousand saxophones running through my veins day and night, my friends, and we will now devote a few minutes to celebrating the most evi-- I mean, uh, smooth music in the world. You ready? Boys, you got your turtlenecks on? Yeah. Let's dig the countdown.
- 5. Chocolate Cake Supreme - Glacier Memories | Awwwwww yeaaaah. This is the real smoothness, people. You should need a prescription for this level of smoothness, you dig? May cause drowsiness... sexy drowsiness.
- 4. Whipsy Fauntleroy - Sensual Candlewax (The Hovercraft Song) | I'll tell you what, kids: if I had a hovercraft-- and I'll have one someday, I promise you that-- I would bump this jam nonstop during my swamp adventures and my bearskin interludes of hovercraft sensualness.
- 3. Benny Musk - Hot Lobsters | Hot new entry! Numero tres with a bullet! Dang, kittens, you can practically smell the cognac and cologne oozing out of this one. Genuine class, like a fresh pair of spats. I can dig this, and I only ask that you do the same.
- 2. Raoul Champagne - Butt Connection | Leave it to the smooth jazz genius of my good friend Raoul-- author of the classic "Teatime For Ya Butt"-- to find an entirely new way to use the word "butt" in the title of a song. My respect to you, Raoul.
- 1. Cassius LaFontaine - Let Me Put My Love Into There | Rest in peace, baby. Cass has been gone for some time, but it still hurts. It hurts so, so bad. But he was a man of visionary foresight, and he had the genius to record over sixty albums worth of the smoothest jazz any man could hope to... could hope to... I'm getting a little choked up, cats and kittens. I better take my leave for the week. Cassisus, you smooth angel? Can you hear me, baby? Play 'em off, wherever you are.
12 Timmy & Anesidora's WoeEdit
- Announcement EI Report: Timmy & Anesidora's Woe - [NPC] Dr. Singh Thu Nov 11, 2010 7:36 pm
Is it Friday already? Wow, time really flew while I was getting those weird medical treatments from Labtech Gene-- he said I'd contracted "blood hepatitis" from eating an old man's tooth, which I don't even remember doing, then he put me in a "medical coma" for a week. Science sure is complicated, huh? That's why you need a biological expert like me to fill you in on the latest Evolving Item news! We've got two of 'em evolving this week:
Our new Rapid EI, Anesidora's Woe, is moving right along: this week, the box is opened, releasing a shadowy figure from his binds. His strange vestments are revealed, including an enchanted cloak sewn of pure despair.
Our little pal Timmy is back-- after his long and troubling mutation, Edmund performed elaborate un-mutation surgery on him. The little guy seems to be recovering well, though he's still confined to his hospital wheelchair.
You can grab these EIs and tons of other cool stuff in the Gaia Cash Shop! Before you go, be sure to stop by our weekly poll and let us know which items you like the best. See you next time, ladies and gentlemen-- unless more baffling medical conditions befall me!
