Happy New Year, Gaians! 2014 is shaping up to be pretty sweet so far, huh? Except this weather! I don't know about you guys, but it's just been just awful around here. Rain! Rain everywhere! I'd at least expect a little snow or something, but nope. Rain. Just rain. Boring old rain. Can you throw a rainball? Build a rain fort? Make a rainman? Well, maybe, if you can count cards and stuff. But that's besides the point! I'm fed up with all this monsooning. It did get me thinkin' though, 'cause nothing inspires me like sheer boredom, and after some tinkering I think I've whipped up something pretty neat! Check it out:

-

Boom! Stellar Flurry, baby. Take that, weather! You're not gonna rain on my parade! We're going to be selling this lovely treat until January 2nd, 11:59 PM EST so drop by soon to get out of this nasty downpour!

02 Flynn's Booty and Chest are back!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Flynn's Booty and Chest are back! - [NPC] Flynn Tue Dec 24, 2013 12:54 pm

Yo ho ho, Gaians! 'Tis I, Ferocious Flynn, back from the farthest reaches of space to bring you heaps of plundered booty! Obligatory space pirate talk aside, it's been a pretty fruitful season for us privateers of the space sea. The holidays are a time for giving gifts and sending cards and all that, which means it's pretty easy to intercept a few mail vessels here and there and steal all their stuff! Don't worry, don't worry—I didn't ruin the holidays for everyone. I mostly just took whatever cash I could find and ran, so at least that way I didn't steal some little Blorgian girl's favorite Florpity Doll or whatever. What good are those toys to me anyway? I already have the entire Florpity collection already, so no big deal.

Anyway, I'm looking to offload some of this treasure I've "acquired" and so I'm back on Gaia! I've put Flynn's Booty, Flynn's Chest, and bundles of each in La Victoire. Each Booty has the chance to contain up to 100 million gold, and my Chest contains up to 250 million gold! And, y'know, since I really made away like a bandit this holiday season, I'm gonna cut you guys a little break. Ten percent off my Flynn's Chest bundle, on me! Call it the spirit of giving, or whatever. But you know I gotta be blasting off on January 4, 11:59 PM EST, and I'll be taking my booty with me. So visit La Victoire soon if you wanna win big!

03 EI Report: Tale of Clarion, and introducing Josie's Journey!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement EI Report: Tale of Clarion, and introducing Josie's Journey! - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Jan 03, 2014 1:40 pm

Happy first Friday of the new year, science lovers! January is already looking to be a rather promising month for Evolving Item-related research, I tell you that much. We've been working ourselves incredibly hard to make sure that this report, our first one of the year, is absolutely spectacular! And I tell you what: all those interns and assistants didn't pass out from exhaustion for nothing! We've got some absolutely amazing evolutions to cover today. Tale of Clarion's adventure still continues, whereas the brand new Josie's Journey has just begun!

-

Tale of Clarion: The adventurers continue to wander through the frozen meadow, their gift of sight allowing them to easily bypass all the treacherous traps hidden in the mist. Still, the path they walk is a dangerous one -- even their enhanced vision isn't enough to protect them from all the obstacles they will encounter on their journey. But the Clarion has other gifts prepared for the heroes as well. As they carefully pick their way through the frigid glade, they spy a chest just slightly off the path. The Clarion gives a faint chime, and the pair know that it is safe. Inside the chest are enchanted garments, capable of repelling nearly any magic attack. They quickly don these new clothes before setting off once more, emboldened by the Clarion's second gift.

Josie's Journey: Ever since she was just a little girl, it was always Josie's fondest wish to travel all around the world. She may be a happily settled shopkeeper now, but when she was younger Josie loved nothing more than exploring wherever she could. She spent her teenage years roughing it in the wilds of her homeland, trekking across the country and having some pretty crazy adventures! And, of course, discovering all the incredible clothes that would later influence her beloved Global Imports and her signature fashion sense. Want to learn more about Josie's amazing journey? Then stay tuned!


Wasn't that a great way to start off 2014, my little scientific prodigies? A brand new EI! Life truly doesn't get any better -- unless there's chocolate involved. That's been scientifically proved. Well, that's all for today, but be sure to tune in next week for more report-y goodness! You can see all these lovely evolutions and more in La Victoire. And don't forget to vote in our Weekly EI Poll and let us know what you think! See you next week!

04 Last chance to grab Checkmate Tactics: Endgame!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Last chance to grab Checkmate Tactics: Endgame! - [NPC] Ivan Thu Jan 02, 2014 1:17 pm

Hello, Gaians. I figured it was finally safe to come out after having lived under the Table for several weeks now. To be perfectly honest, I was starting to fear permanent injury to my spine. A few days ago I emerged from under the Table briefly in order to abscond with a few snacks and there was a distinctive hunch that I am fairly sure I didn't possess earlier in the month. Or maybe I did? I don't know, honestly. Time moves differently under the Table. Everything is different. I found myself asking a lot of deep questions while I was under that glorious wooden surface. Who was I, really? Who are we? Why did the Table sacrifice its own well-being to protect me? Why was I under there in the first place? At least I knew the answer to that last question. There was a war going on outside! And the Table had given me visions, Gaians! Such visions of lovely rewards, the likes of which I've never seen before!


Of course, it all turned out to be a serious case of hysterics and not actual enlightenment. But at least the Checkmate Tactics: Endgame war has seemed to have died out some! I suspect the battle will be officially over on January 9, 11:59 PM EST. Perhaps you'd like to show off your skill in combat before everything dies down? Just don't involve me in your fights. In fact, I'm going back under the Table. It just feels... right, somehow.

Cygnus: Um. Hi. Or whatever. So, I got something to say. Despite what I told Jet, I did make a new year's resolution. It's, uh... kind of lame. But whatever, new year's resolutions are always super lame. I want to be more artistic, I guess. Make, uh... you know. Pretty things. Or cool things. Whatever. Look, here is a thing I made, okay?

-

I think it's my best piece so far. Still practicing. So, you know. Go easy on me. But I like it. Purple is a good color. Best color, I guess. Not that I'm biased or whatever. Anyway, uh. I'm calling it Wisteria Sea. I didn't make a whole lot of 'em, so they're gonna be in the shop until January 5th, 11:59 PM EST. Gonna go work on some other things now. Go bother Jet if you need some help in La Victoire. Unless you need something from a high shelf. Then you can bother me, or whatever. Try not to.

05 Alchemy Formula sale in La Victoire!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Alchemy Formula sale in La Victoire! - [NPC] Cresento Thu Jan 02, 2014 1:01 pm

Right. Hello Gaians, or whatever you choose to call yourselves. Given that it's a brand new year, I believe you all should resolve to become better alchemists. I understand that it's difficult to feel motivated when you realize you'll never be as gifted as myself, but just use my amazing talents as inspiration for you to improve your own meager skills. But I'm not entirely unsympathetic to your plight, I suppose—well, mostly I got fed up with Nicolae's complaining on your behalf, but either or. Which is why I've arranged a little sale on some Alchemy formulas that I recently managed to discover. Let's take a look, shall we?


The following formulas will be available in La Victoire:

• Formula 1: Angelic Quest Inizio
• Formula 1: Demonic Quest Inizio
• Formula 1: Risen Quest Inizio
• Formula 1: Fallen Quest Inizio
• Formula 1: Celestial Quest Inizio
• Formula 1: Devilish Quest Inizio


I'll be allowing these to be put up for sale until January 5, 11:59 PM EST, at which point my sense of mercy will most likely diminish. Visit La Victoire to pick up this formulas and anything else, I suppose. Then be sure to visit the Bifrost to browse our amazing selection of Alchemy goods. Just remember that I don't answer any questions directed at me.

Cygnus: Hey. So, I'm tryin' really hard to stick to my new year's resolution this year, you know? It's rough. For every half-decent item I manage to create there's like, a huge bundle of terrible attempts before it. I'm pretty sure I saw Jet laughing at me at one point. Or maybe he was laughing at cartoons. I don't know, I wasn't really paying attention. Anyway, I've been practicing. And, uh. I managed to make a thing, I guess. I like how it came out. Take a look:

-

Not bad. I'm calling it Midnight Countess, and I think it's pretty neat. I worked hard on it. So, uh. I don't know. I guess visit La Victoire, if that's what you want. Maybe take a look. I only made enough to have it on the shelves until January 7th, 11:59 PM EST, so I guess drop by soon if you're interested in supporting my attempts at being more artistic. Or whatever.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Rosamund and Princess sale in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Mon Jan 06, 2014 6:46 pm

Hi, Gaians! Look, could you guys settle an argument for me? You guys all know that Cygnus is a (creepily) huge fan of Rosamund and her story, right? He's not very talkative but the dude is a real sucker for romance when you get right down to it, even if he'll deny it until he's even more purple in the face. But me? Eh, I don't know. I could take or leave Rosamund, honestly. I prefer the various incarnations of Gaia's other Princess! She's just so haughty, you know? I dig that kind of attitude. Anyway, Cygnus and I were debating which princess was better. I mean, obviously I'm right. I'm always right. But he proposed a pretty cool idea: why don't we have kind of a sale battle and see who comes out on top? Let me remind you of all the amazing players we've got in this "fight":

-

That's right! We'll be selling the lovely Rosamund's Garland Bundle and the Princess Voyage Bundle right here in La Victoire, as well as the individual items! And don't forget that each bundle comes with its own amazing exclusive: Rosamund's Rage and Princess of the Woods! So why not visit La Victoire and pick your favorite princess?

  • Icon announceAnnouncement EI Bundles for sale in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Tue Jan 07, 2014 3:41 pm

Hey hey, Gaians! So, I was chatting with Dr. Singh recently -- you know, about evil genius kind of stuff -- when we got on to the topic of EIs. They're pretty fascinating, huh? I don't get the science behind how they work but apparently Dr. Singh is, like, super into it. She seems nice though, and we decided why not celebrate her amazing research right here at La Victoire? So Cygnus and I put in some pretty long hours, just preparing for this totally awesome sale we've been planning. And you know what? I think all of our effort really paid off. We've got bundles galore on our shelves right now, each of them filled to the brim with past EI favorites! Here, wanna see? Take a look!

-

Lots to choose from, huh? Don't worry! We packaged all these astounding scientific discovers into some themed bundles for easy pickin'! We've got the Antique Evolving Item Bundle for those of you who like to kick it old school, the Charming Evolving Item Bundle for all you lovely damsels, the Heroic Evolving Item Bundle for you tough guys, and the very special Gambler's Evolving Item Bundle! The Gambler's Evolving Item Bundle can contain any of the bundles listed above, or you might just get the rare Super Evolving Item Bundle, filled with gorgeous recolors of popular EIs! We'll have these great bundles until January 9th, 11:59 PM, so why not stop by La Victoire and peruse our ever evolving inventory? Haha! Didja get that? I said evolving, see? It's a joke. ... What? Cygnus, stop making that face at me, you big lug.

08 Cash Shop Update: Sisters of Destiny Bundle!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Cash Shop Update: Sisters of Destiny Bundle! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Tue Jan 07, 2014 4:57 pm

Do you guys ever wonder if we have power over our own destinies? No, serious question here! 'Cause, you know, sometimes... I feel like I'm not entirely in control of my own actions. At least that's the excuse I usually give Cygnus every time I claw up all the furniture, although I'm not entirely sure he's buying it anymore. But sometimes I do wonder if there isn't some invisible hand guiding us along a predetermined path. Was I always fated to be as amazing as I am now? I mean, I can only assume that was the case. Cats like me don't just become awesome, we're born that way. But if there is something -- or someone -- who determines our destiny, you gotta wonder what they'd be like. That's some real power, you know? And these are some deep thoughts. Next thing you know I'm gonna be as grumpy and sullen as Cygnus. Man, that's truly a fate worse than death. But how can I be sad when I've got so much excitement in my life right now? We've got a gorgeous new bundle here in La Victoire, so please say hello to the three lovely siblings of the Sisters of Destiny Bundle!

-

Chrysanthe's Fountain: The elegant Chrysanthe is as renowned for her beauty as she is for her wisdom. A sip from her fountain is said to grant eternal life, and each mortal's spirit is born from within it. She loves nothing more than to watch the lives of mortals unfold in the rippling waters of her fountain, even though she already knows how everything will play out. Includes her flowing gown, strapped shoes, cape, golden wreath, regal hair, and water of life fountain.

Chara's Spirit: Chara is by far the most joyful of the sisters, a happy grin never seeming to fade from her face. Chara makes sure every mortal stays on their destined path, and although her work as an enforcer of fate is never ceasing, she always maintains a playful attitude as she flits about carrying out her responsibilities. Includes her short toga, winged legs, wrist cuffs, rippling sash, tiered updo, and cheerful smile.

Antigone's Hourglass: Antigone is by far the most somber of the three sisters, responsible for leading the spirits of the dead back to the life-giving waters of Chrysanthe's fountain so that they can be reborn once more. Quiet and foreboding, Antigone takes her responsibility as a shepherd of departed souls very seriously, as without her the souls of the dead would forever wander the world aimlessly and alone. Includes her chest plate, skirt, armored boots, dynamic cape, wavy black hair, and precious hourglass belted around her waist.

Available exclusively in the Sisters of Destiny Bundle is the utterly adorable Kamera the Chimera! Although he might seem a little bit frightening at first, this friendly little fellow is as sweet as they come! Includes his tiny blue wings as a pose for you!


Really makes you think, huh? Well, I definitely think this bundle was fated to be put on our shelves, 'cause it's way too amazing to ignore. Come visit La Victoire and see it for yourself!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement The seal is weakening on January's Advance Chance! - [NPC] Ivan Thu Jan 09, 2014 2:49 pm

Huh? What day is it? Sorry, I must've lost track of the time... I've been so focused on using my Waxwane 8491V00H Office Calculating Machine to tabulate up all my accounts receivable that I've not been paying attention to anything else! Ah, the allure of a calculator. Its siren song is too tempting to resist. Well, it seems like enough time has passed—perhaps the seal on the Advance Chance has weakened some? Let's take a little peek and see how January's Advance Chance is coming along...

What will the next CI be? Nobody is quite sure, but you’ll get the first crack at it with the January Advance Chance. On the day of the next CI release, you’ll be able to open your bundle and start reaping the rewards of your CIs hours before they’re released to the general public, so you can start listing items on the Marketplace when hardly anyone has their hands on them yet.


Oh yes! That definitely has more wiggle in it that it had earlier. I suspect that the seal will be completely broken early tomorrow. Will my theory be correct? Most likely! I've already run the numbers on my trusty Waxwane and that machine never fails. But I suppose we'll find out soon! Be sure to stop by La Victoire and collect a few Advance Chances for yourself!

Strange things are afoot, Gaians. Here, look up -- see that? I’ve never seen a moon so bright before! Although its luminous beauty is certainly entrancing, I find it a little unusual that it’s so visible in the -- hang on, let me check my watch -- eeearly afternoon. I mean I’ve seen the moon during the day before, given that it’s not exactly an uncommon occurrence if one is as an avid a sky watcher as I am, but this is really beyond the pale! What could have caused such a strange celestial conundrum? Well, I can only assume that the moon has brightened its inspiring glow in support of this month’s stellar CI, Nouvelle Lune! I, for one, fully intend to take full advantage of this amazing situation. I'm going to park myself right here and refuse to budge until the moon fades from the sky. Why? Well, it's my personal belief that basking in the glow of a moon gives you stronger bones! And since my fragile accountant's skeleton is so incredibly frail, I'm going to probably be here a while. Are you interested in moonbathing with me? I mean, who knows what you might discover under its pale rays! Maybe it won't make your bones stronger, but you might be able to find a Cash Shop favorite, a valuable rare item, or one of these sparkling new exclusives:

-

Funny, isn't it? I always just assumed the moon was something of a loner. How strange to find it beaming in brilliant solidarity! Well, if you're interested in enjoying this bizarre phenomenon with me, why not try your hand at a Nouvelle Lune? Or if you're feeling particularly motivated, you could pick up a bundle of nine to really take it all in! I'll be lounging in this chair over here, absorbing all these glorious rays, if you need me.

10 EI Report: Tale of Clarion and Josie's Journey!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement EI Report: Tale of Clarion and Josie's Journey! - [NPC] Dr. Singh Date

Friday at last, my little crumpets of science-y deliciousness! We've got an amazing report today that is sure to whet your appetite for further Evolving Item research. In fact, I'd hazard to say that the report this week features evolutions that are just mouth wateringly incredible. I suppose I ought to apologize for all the food-related commentary, it's just that I'm feeling a little bit peckish. I've been working so hard all week that I've hardly had any time to eat! Still, there's nothing more rewarding than seeing all your efforts pay off. The evolutions this week from Tale of Clarion and Josie's Journey are so fantastic that it makes all those skipped meal breaks totally worth it! Let's take a look, shall we?

-


Tale of Clarion: Our heroes continued to make their way across the strange new land, wary of avoiding any traps or obstacles. But as they carefully picked their way through the dangerous path, the pair encountered a terrifying monster that towered over them all. With their enchanted armor and gift of sight, however, the heroes made short work of their attacker. Much to their surprise, the nightmarish creature was protecting a massive hoard of gold! Now wealthy beyond their wildest dreams, the pair continued on their journey with their bags brimming with coins and treasure.

Josie's Journey: Josie grew up in a crowded, dingy city. Even though she'd always wanted to travel and see the world, Josie spent most of her younger years studying at home -- she had never even left the city once! Her heart yearned for adventure and exploration, but instead Josie focused on her college applications like the hardworking student she was. However, while out picking up some groceries one day, Josie spied a pop of bright color out of the corner of her eye. A fashionable jacket was being displayed in the window of a small boutique, and Josie fell in love with the trendy, vibrant coat instantly. It took weeks of saving and scrimping, but Josie finally managed to buy that jacket right off the mannequin. Inspired by its flashy colors and unique features, Josie decided it was finally time to follow her dreams and travel as much as she could! After all, there was a great big world out there. And Josie planned to see it all!


My goodness, wasn't that just an appetizing display? I might even be drooling right now. Or perhaps that's a side effect of the pills I was taking to stay up for 72 hours at a time? Either way, it's nothing a little Science Bib can't handle! That's all for our EI report today, but be sure to stop by again next week when we'll have even more incredible discoveries to discuss. You can find these Evolving Items and lots more over at La Victoire! And don't forget to vote in this week's EI Poll and let us know what you think. See you next Friday, you decadent little morsels!

13 Flash Sale in La Victoire!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Flash Sale in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Thu Jan 09, 2014 3:46 pm

Hey hey, Gaians! So, I just had a pretty interesting experience. It's been pretty cold out lately, and so Cygnus thought he ought to invest in some little booties to keep my dainty paws all snug and warm. Big mistake. I couldn't walk in the dang things! I just kept slipping and sliding all over, shaking my legs and feelin' pretty miserable. For some reason Cygnus was filming it, too? I'm not sure why. He was snickering an awful lot. ... Now that I think about, I'm not sure Cygnus bought those little cat shoes just to keep my feet warm. That huge jerk. Well, joke's on him! That embarrassing little diversion gave me a great idea for a sale. Check it out!


Bunny Slippers and Chicky Slippers can keep even the iciest of toesies nice and cozy! And they're a heck of a lot more fashionable than those stupid booties that Cygnus bought me. But what about your head? Don't want that getting chilly either! No worries, I've got you covered. We'll also be selling Mini Angel Wings and Mini Nitemare Wings right here in La Victoire! These snug little items will be on sale until January 13, 11:59 PM EST so why not stop by and come in from the cold?

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go plan my revenge against Cygnus.

Aloha, Gaians! Jet here, just doin' some thinking. Our shop is starting to look a little packed, huh? I kinda wanna clean a few things out. I've been eyeing a couple of items in particular, I have to admit. Remember these bundles? They had all sorts of awesome things in them, take a look!

17 EI Report: Tale of Clarion and Josie's Journey!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement EI Report: Tale of Clarion and Josie's Journey! - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Jan 17, 2014 12:46 pm

Happy Friday, boys and girls! I trust we all had a nice, productive week? I certainly did. Amazing what you can accomplish when you don't give a fig about sleeping, eating, or workplace safety! As usual, I'm here to report on the efforts of my team and myself over at the Evolving Item Labs and all the amazing research we've uncovered over the course of the week. Are you prepared to be amazed? Wearing your safety goggles? Seatbelt? Swanky lab coat? Good! We've got all sorts of science-y goodness from Tale of Clarion and Josie's Journey today, so let's jump right in!

-

Tale of Clarion: Our heroes were now laden down with treasure, enchanted armor, and incredible powers. Surely the Clarion had nothing left to show them? Still, the pair couldn't shake the feeling that their journey was not quite over just yet. An ominous portent fell over the two as they continued to travel across the strange land, something that they couldn't quite explain. There was no obvious, immediate danger, but they just somehow knew that something big -- and powerful -- was lurking in the shadows.

Or perhaps it was just their imaginations...

Josie's Journey: Josie carefully gathered up her belongings as she prepared to start her journey, making sure to pack as light as she could. After all, she didn't have a car. Or a bike. Or anything to travel on, really! It seemed she'd be enjoying her journey on foot -- at least, for a little while. Maybe she could find a used junker in a village somewhere? Either way, Josie was determined not to be deterred. She left a note informing her parents that she was pursuing her dream of traveling outside of her city, took a deep breath, and finally set off.

After what felt like an eternity of walking, Josie turned around and stared at the city she had now left behind her. From this distance it was just a darkened silhouette, a conglomerate of blocky buildings outlined against the blue sky. In front of her was a seemingly endless strip of a road, surrounded on either side by a flat expanse of land. No buildings, no homes -- no civilization. Nothing. For a moment Josie hesitated, a pang of early homesickness twisting her gut. But Josie knew she had to do this. She squared her shoulders, held her head high, and marched onwards. It felt almost as if something was calling for her out there, and she was going to find it.


Wasn't that splendid, my little scientific chums? Truly, you don't get quality like this from any other lab! Unfortunately that's all we have for today, but please tune in next Friday for more glorious science! You can see all these gorgeous items and more at La Victoire, and don't forget to vote in our Weekly EI Poll for your favorite items! See you all next Friday!

-

I'm calling it Runcible Spoon Renewal. Because it represents my renewed interest in artistry. Or something. I don't know, I'm not great with names. I think the item came out pretty nice, though. Nothin' like the classic colors, you know? I hope so, at least. I tried. I guess that's what counts. I also recolored one of the dolls -- gonna call it SDPlus #485 Runcible Spoon Renewal. Both items are gonna be in the shop until January 19th, 11:59 PM EST so stop by and check it out. Maybe sit around for a while so Jet will sleep in your lap instead of mine.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Score some great wintry goods with Winter's Tale! - [NPC] Ivan Fri Jan 17, 2014 4:28 pm

Gaians, I feel I ought to warn you that I don't do particularly well with cold. My poor circulation and tendency to eschew traditional business wear and exclusively don short-sleeved shirts doesn't allow me much warmth, I'm afraid. The winter months are nothing but a source of misery as a result, and no amount of hot coffee or using Mr. Bibbles as a portable body heater seem to do me any good. Alas, if only I could invest in some more seasonally appropriate duds! Or maybe some heat for my apartment. Unfortunately, most of my income is currently tied up in a business venture -- something about a scheme to build pyramids, I honestly had trouble following what the guy was saying -- and so it seems that I'm doomed to spend my next few weeks chilled to the bone. But I can save you Gaians from the same fate! Would you like to spend this season both fashionably and comfortably? Then perhaps you ought to look into the brand new Winter's Tale CI, brimming with goods totally appropriate for the weather! Here, see for yourself:

-

Such snaziness! Also, I've looked inside these wondrous items and I was shocked to discover that their contents were entirely all new! It truly warms my heart. But not my hands. Or nose. Or feet. Oh dear. Well, never mind that. Releasing the lovely Winter's Tale is enough to fill me with cheer! So, please drop by La Victoire if you'd like to check out this amazing item yourself. We even have it available in a bundle pack for those looking to really stock up for the season! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to find myself a nice steam grate to hunch over.

Hello again, my friendly Gaian chums! Your humble P.U.G. returns once more with incredibly exciting news! As you all know, there is nothing I enjoy more than sharing my wonderful wares with as many users as possible. Why else would I have entered this business? And so I am delighted to inform you that I've partnered up with Jet and Cygnus from La Victoire. Admittedly I was reluctant to consider their proposal (I never trust a cat, friends, at least not at first) but the prospect of spreading my love of stylish finery to a greater audience was too much too resist. What does this mean? Allow me to elaborate! Going forward, Vergers will be at the forefront of the fashion world by receiving early access to select fabulous items—seven days early, in fact! -- before those items are then placed into La Victoire.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Divnity's Reach Super Bundle now in La Victoire! - [NPC] Mintaka & Rigel Tue Jan 21, 2014 12:57 pm

Ugh! The audacity of some people, Gaians! You wouldn't believe the dirty looks Cygnus is throwing us after we politely called him out earlier. Jet told us that glowering is just "his normal face" but we refuse to accept such excuses. We are positive that he is jealous of our sparkling beauty and that he intends to take it out on us by tossing us sour glares whenever he can! Well, that's fine. Two—or three, in this case—can play at that game. We'll show him that we're the greatest shopkeepers Gaia's ever seen! How? By offering an amazing deal on Divinity's Reach, with the simply heavenly Divinity's Reach Super Bundle!


Divinity's Reach is full of heavenly rewards, from sacks of gold to beautiful, super rare items! You can score up to five million gold, a popular Chance Item, one of a variety of gorgeous backwings, or possibly even a valuable 2003 Monthly Collectible! And with the incredible Divinity's Reach Super Bundle, you can get 12 Divinity's Reach for a price that is utterly divine! But we can't offer a deal this amazing for too long, so the Super Bundle will leave La Victoire by 11:59 PM EST tonight! Still, it should be more than enough to keep that big, purple jerk from making faces at us! See you at La Victoire!

You know what I love? You guys. No, I do! I'm not one for the touchy-feely stuff, but honestly you Gaians make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. But you know what I loathe? Feeling warm and fuzzy. I'm super conflicted right now guys, you have no idea. I'm on an emotional rollercoaster of FEELINGS and SENTIMENT and it's just. Ugh. I can't decide if it's the worst or the best thing ever. My brain is overloading here, kids. But, y'know, brain overloads can lead to brainstorms... And so I had an idea! Why not sift through my emotional turmoil with a sale themed around how I'm feeling? Oh yeah. Sounds good. So, we're gonna be having a little "Loving" and "Loathing" sale here in La Victoire! Take a look!

-


You might've noticed a few new faces (literally) amongst some old friends! That's right: we're not only selling Loving Manner and Loathing Style, but we'll also be selling two recolors of each! You can snag yourself a Tender Loving Manner and Gentle Loving Manner if you're feeling lovey-dovey, or a Fierce Loathing Style and Bitter Loathing Style if you're like Cygnus and like frowning at people a lot. The choice is yours! But if you're having trouble deciding between them all, we'll also be offering the totally awesome Loving Bundle and Loathing Bundle! The sale is only until January 24th at 11:59pm EST though, because I'm hoping to have my feelings sorted out by then. Otherwise I'm worried I might end up going a little crazy. So, hey! See you around La Victoire, ya hear?

I don't know where they all came from -- I put in an order for one or two and instead this buy guy Lance brought me like a BAJILLION of them and said something about "here is your giant package!" and I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON. All I know is the shop is so stuffed full of bundles that I can barely move! I'm literally swimming in 'em! Can you guys help me move some of this extra inventory?

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Cash Shop Update: Turbulent Waters Bundle! - Tue Jan 21, 2014 5:37 pm

Yo ho yo ho, a pirate's life for me! Or you know. Maybe not. Since I don't really like water or anything, I'm pretty much as landlocked as they come. But I like to pretend! Don a jaunty little eyepatch. Drink some ice tea and pretend it's rum. You know -- the usual kind of stuff! And of course there's all the lootin' and pillaging, the actual pirate business. That normally entails running into Cygnus' room, loading up with whatever I can get my paws on, and then dashing back out before the big lug can really register what's going on. Boy, does it tick him off! It's pretty dang great. Just like pirates! Which is why I've got this great new bundle for sale, celebrating everything it is to be a scurvy ol' scourge of the seven seas! Let's take a look at the Turbulent Waters Bundle, shall we?

-

Madame Rouge: A fearsome pirate who is as beautiful as she is dangerous! She's determined to prove herself, regardless of her gender. Her goal? To use her mysterious necklace and have it lead her to a lost race of of aquatic humanoids -- and all their glorious treasure! Includes her pirate coat, ruffled shirt, pants and boots, sword, flowing scarlet hair, and trademark rouge lips.

Mysterious Captain: This devilish seadog's smirk always looks somehow familiar, but he never stays long enough in one place for anyone to recognize him. He travels from port to port, breaking hearts and stealing coin, until he's off to sea once more in search of a lost lady love who set sail many years ago. Includes his feathered hat, jabot, long coat, ginger hair, smokey eye makeup, and a handsome pirate stance.

Moana the Azure Porpoise: Moana is a porpoise with purpose: to be your friend! She comes with plenty of poses to make sure you both have lots of fun on the high seas. Includes her beautiful eyes so you can match her gaze!

Available exclusively in the Turbulent Waters Bundle is the captivating Azure Guidance! This strange necklace possesses the one who wears it, opening their eyes to the ancient history of a lost people.


So awesome. Am I right? Of course I am. Man, this totally gives me a hankering to go put on that old eyepatch, lemme tell ya. I think Cygnus hid it somewhere but that just means I get to go on a treasure hunt! You can check out this great bundle at La Victoire, so I hope to see you there real soon!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement What does the fox sell? Find out at La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Wed Jan 22, 2014 5:20 pm

So, okay. I've got something to say to everyone, so I need y'all to put on your listenin' caps and lean in real close. I've been hearing rumors around the water cooler that, apparently, people are very curious as to what foxes say. Inordinately so, in fact. Like, it's borderline unhealthy. I'm worried about your welfare, people. Have you ever actually listened to a fox? The noises they make! They're... they're unholy. Me and my buddy Sly, you know, we can be conversatin' on all cheerful like when suddenly he starts letting out these yowls and screams that are absolutely TERRIFYING. And no, they don't sound anything like "Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow! Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho! Joff-tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!" before you get any sort of crazy ideas. C'mon guys! That's just insulting to us fuzzy, adorable, four-legged mammals. I don't go around making silly sounds and shouting "WHAT DO THE GAIANS SAY" or whatever. But look, I'm a good guy. I like to think of myself as an educator. So hey, Sly is looking for a good home -- along with some of my other animal chums -- and so I figure, why not help you guys learn what noises foxes (and other animals) actually make? Also, I'm pretty sure Cygnus has some old dolls he probably doesn't want anymore, and I kind of want revenge on him for talkin' bad about me in his "art" posts, sooo... Let's see what we've got, shall we?

-

We'll be offering the following adorable pets for sale:

• Sly the Black Fox
• Kintaro the Shiba Inu
• Custard the Kitten
• Melchior the Meowl
• Cartier the Dragon


And these super collectible toys that I'm totally positive Cygnus won't miss! Probably.

• SDPlus #424 Renard
• SDPlus #099 Kanoko
• SDPlus #176 Thief
• SDPlus #251 Aiden
• SDPlus #418 Melody


Prepare yourself for a real symphony of animal noises, friends. Our neighbors are gonna absolutely hate us! It'll be totally awesome. Thankfully, they won't have to put up with the cacophony for long, since this sale ends January 24th, 11:59 PM EST. Drop by if you'd like! See you around!

Ahoy, Gaians! I heard tell that there was some bundle based on pirates now available in La Victoire, but pssh—those crazy kids ain't pirates! Where's the flashy spaceship? The eye-searing magenta? The kick butt stompy boots good for punting people out the airlock? I tell ya, these guys don't know anything about being a proper privateer! So I'm visiting for a bit, here to show everyone the true meaning of piracy! And what better way to flex my scallywag muscle than to offer up a little of my precious booty and chest? So, I'm going to be putting Flynn's Booty and Flynn's Chest in La Victoire until January 23, 11:59 PM EST to give you all a taste of what it truly means to be a space pirate. Each Booty has the chance to contain up to 100 million gold, and my Chest contains up to 250 million gold! Not only that, but I'm going to be offering my chest for some amazing discounts. You can score twelve Flynn's Chests for 40% off, six Flynn's Chests for 30% off, or an individual Flynn's Chest for 25% off! A pirate's life is truly for me, eh?

Yohoho, Gaians! Just here to tell you I gotta be launching back into space pretty soon. I mean, those vessels aren't exactly going to pirate themselves, you know? You'd think there would be an automated process for commandeering a ship and seizing all their assets already, but nope. Gotta do all the hard work myself. So, I'm just reminding you that my precious Flynn's Booty and Flynn's Chest are only going to be in La Victoire until January 23, 11:59 PM EST... that's only a couple hours from now! Each Booty has the chance to contain up to 100 million gold, and my Chest contains up to 250 million gold! So why not open one and see how much you win? It's probably a heck of a lot easier than piracy!

Gaians, I've... I've done it. I've created something so mind bogglingly brilliant, so astoundingly amazing, so scientifically genius that is bound to absolutely blow your mind. Einstein? Mendeleev? Newton? Hacks! The whole lot of them! Nothing they ever came up with even comes close to rivaling my new, greatest experiment: the Theory of Evolution! Yes, okay -- perhaps the name isn't the most original, but my theory is completely different from anything Darwin conjured up! Using my amazing new theory, I've created a device that -- through completely scientific means that have nothing even remotely to do with with the wizard I keep trapped in the basement of the EI Labs -- randomly recreates an Evolving Item or Rapidly Evolving Item from the past and delivers it directly to your inventory! Don't believe me? BEHOLD, empirical evidence!

-

That's right, you could win EIs such as The Case of Pietro and Zodiacal, REIs like Sainte Ciel: Agape or Little Lucie, and tons more to boot! It's almost too good to be true, but it is. I swear! Except maybe you guys could help me test it out a bit? You know, be my sample group. I'd really appreciate the help! Once I collect all my results I can submit a paper to Evolutionary Theorist Monthly and they'll have to publish it. They all laughed at me, but I'll show them! I'll show them all! So why not aid the march of scientific progress and pick up a Theory of Evolution CI? They'll be in La Victoire until January 26th, 11:59 PM EST because I need to gather my data fast if I want to submit my research in time. Help an excited scientist out!

Let the great experiment BEGIN!

You know, Gaians, being cute and fluffy definitely has its perks. People wanna pick you up and carry you places, you get some really nice chin scratchies, and folks naturally assume that you never do anything wrong 'cause you're so gosh darn adorable! I admit, it's worked out pretty well for me. But sometimes I do wish I was a little... tougher. More masculine. Y'know -- all vests and ties and big scary muscles, whippin' around a giant sword as if it weighed no more than a toothpick. Sometimes I do pretend a toothpick is a giant sword, but honestly it's really just not the same. Cygnus only gets mildly annoyed when I poke him with it instead of grievously injured. Sigh. Well, you know. In celebration of my masculine ideal, I figured I oughta hold a sale featurin' everything I think to be pretty manly! Check out what we've got:

-

That's right! Cruel Cleaner, The Somber Ringmaster, Bitter Sweets, Hero's Manner, Blade of the Night Sky, and Devil's Spice will all be on sale right here in La Victoire! Man, I feel like flexin' my biceps just looking at these things. You know, if I had anything to actually flex. Maybe I'll get Cygnus to flex for me. Anyway, these will all be on sale until January 24th, 11:59 PM EST, so stop by and we'll... I don't know! Grill up some steaks! Talk about some football! Go yachting!

24 EI Report: Josie's Journey and Tale of Clarion!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement EI Report: Josie's Journey and Tale of Clarion! - [NPC] Dr. Singh Date

Greetings, my lovely little muffins of science-y deliciousness! I've been having just an amazing week so far. With Gaians helping to test out my groundbreaking new Theory of Evolution, I've been collating so much data that I've never felt happier! I've even brought in some extra help; that guy Ivan sure is handy with a calculator. But don't worry, guys -- no matter how excited I am to conduct a new experiment, I will never forget my one true love and passion. Evolving Item reports are practically my raison d'etre, and we've got such an fascinating one to get through this week that I scarcely know where to start! Not only has Josie's Journey experienced another remarkable evolution, but Tale of Clarion underwent an absolutely incredible finale! Let's take a look, shall we?

-


Josie's Journey: Josie continued to plod along the path, her feet growing more and more sore as she wandered. The occasional small town dotted the road she walked, but they were so few and far between that Josie could barely muster the energy to get excited for them. Maybe she just hadn't traveled far enough from her city yet? Just as Josie was beginning to question her decision to leave home, a sputtering engine and flash of metal rocketed past her. Josie coughed in the dust it raised in its wake, waving a hand in front of her face to clear the air, when she realized something: her bag was gone! Infuriated, Josie set off after the moped at breakneck speed.

No matter how much the thief gassed the engine, he simply couldn't escape Josie's wrath. She easily caught up to the bike and grabbed the thief by his collar, tossing him off as if he weighed nothing at all. Wide-eyed, the thief apologized and begged Josie not to beat him up, offering her a ride to the next town in exchange. Josie considered this for a moment, eyeing her would-be assailant carefully. He seemed just a few years older than her, with spindly arms and legs and not that much muscle. Josie knew she could easily take him down if he tried anything funny. And so she agreed, although she warned her new partner that she was a deadly shot with her earrings if he attempted anything even remotely suspicious. She hopped on the back of his bike and the pair set off to the nearest town, still several days away.

And although neither Josie nor her new friend were aware of it, this was how Josie met her first true love.

Tale of Clarion: The Clarion bell chimed a frightened warning as dark shadows advanced on our heroes. They gripped their weapons tight and exchanged a look, each of them aware that this was the final, climactic battle. With the Clarion ringing in their ears, they swung and hacked, slashed and parried; the shadows were everywhere, but their gift of sight and enchanted armor helped them evade their monstrous claws and magic. Finally, as twilight fell on the strange land, the last of the shadows found its incorporeal body pierced by the heroes' magic weapons. It dissipated with a faint hiss, and the battle was finally over. The heroes had fulfilled the prophecy: they had saved this land from the monsters that tormented it. The Clarion began to peal as a second moon suddenly appeared in the night sky. The heroes stared at it in wonder as the Clarion continued to ring, its music sweet and clear. It was peaceful.


That's it for this Friday's report, but we'll have tons more evolutionary goodness next week! I mean, who knows what will crop up? Please drop by La Victoire if you wish to witness these scientific marvels in person, and don't forget to vote in our Weekly EI Poll when you have the chance! See you next week, science lovers!

Jet: Ahem! The following is an address from Sir Jet of Sparkleton, Duke of the Worcestershire Sauce, Lord of Biscuits! Hello, my good Gaian chums! Do you like tea? I quite like tea! Tea is pretty great! We should all drink tea! Together! Here! Mayhaps with little tiny sandwiches, which are in fact normal sized sandwiches for me, since I am a star kitten and thus am quite small. But for you they shall be most tiny! Ohohohoho! Now then, shall we commence the drinking of the tea? Everyone, dump some totally gross leaves into your boiling hot water and -- hey! Hey! Cygnus, you big lug, put me down!

Cygnus: Uh, guys. I feel like I ought to explain this a little. Jet's been watching a lot of that TV show "Downtown Monastery" and I think it's, like... ruined his brain. Or something. He's been doing this all weekend. Look, what we're trying to say is that we're having a little tea party here at La Victoire. And, uh -- we're celebrating that, too. With bundles. See? Take a look:

-

Cygnus: It's got kind of an Alice in Wonderland vibe to it, mostly because if we had to do an entire tea party themed around Downtown Monastery I think I'd go completely insane. And I, uh. I really don't wanna end up like Jet.

Jet: PISHPOSH, I AM IN FULL CONTROL OF MY CAPACITIES. Put me down this instant! I am a duke!

Cygnus: See what I mean? The bundles are pretty awesome though. We've got the Cheshire Cat Bundle, the Queen of Hearts Bundle, the Mad Hatter Bundle, and the Alice Bundle. We've also got the mysterious Drink Me Eat Me item, which can contain any of the bundles listed above, or even the super rare Unbirthday Party Pack, filled with amazing treasures you're sure to love. These bundles will be in the shop until January 29th, 11:59 PM EST. So uh, stop by, if you'd like. Have some tea. Or don't. But please come. I need help dealing with Jet. Please.

27 Get a head start on February's first CI with Advance Chance!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Get a head start on February's first CI with Advance Chance! - [NPC] Ivan Fri Jan 24, 2014 6:16 pm

Ah, the holiday of l'amour. Apparently we can expect its swift, merciless approach some time next month. Nothing like being reminded time and time again of your own horrible, soul-crushing loneliness, is there? No, I certainly enjoy it. I do. I sit down with Mr. Bibbles and a tub of Stenn & Ivin Ice Cream Sad Pops and just... enjoy my own piercing solitude. You see, not every cloud has a silver lining covered in Frills. It's remarkable that I've managed to maintain my svelte figure, as I tend to... indulge as Valentine's Day approaches. I might hit up the BK and the White Qastle—both on the same night. Or just eat a huge bowl of Cirael and call it a day. Afterwards, I like to curl up with a bunch of pillows and realize that I am, and always will be, forever, forever, alone.

Sigh. Well, there's one bright spot on the vast, empty horizon. February's Advance Chance is here, and not a moment too soon!

What will the next CI be? Nobody is quite sure, but you’ll get the first crack at it with the February Advance Chance. On the day of the next CI release, you’ll be able to open your bundle and start reaping the rewards of your CIs hours before they’re released to the general public, so you can start listing items on the Marketplace when hardly anyone has their hands on them yet.


I've inspected this month's Advance Chance thoroughly, and I am convinced that it's a little different! I believe it's because some old items that have gone below a certain value have been removed. Other than that, however, it appears to be perfectly, wonderfully normal! Huzzah! This is actually making me feel a little bit better, I will admit. You can pick up your own Advance Chance in La Victoire!

Oh, and one more very, very important thing! I've been asked to tell you all that, going forward, there will now be two full CIs every month! Which means I'll have fewer opportunities to dwell on my loneliness and solitude! DOUBLE HUZZAH! Please keep an eye out for our second CI coming later next month!

27 Best of Recolors Sale in La Victoire!Edit

Cygnus: All right, so. Jet is having a little tea party with himself and a bunch of my action figures. I'm just... I'm not gonna touch that. So long as he's happy, or whatever. Gonna focus on my own thing instead. Y'know... my art. And stuff. I've been kind of hitting a wall. Not feeling super motivated, or whatever. So I figured maybe I'll have a sale on the things that inspired me to want to do this kind of art in the first place? Maybe it'll help. So, um. These are some recolors that I like. A lot. Here, it's better if I just show you:


It's kind of a lot of them, but I guess they're um... They're all special to me. So, uh. You probably want to know their names. Okay.

  • Lavish Lucie
  • Ivory Rose
  • Hera's Lace
  • Puriel's Wings
  • Beyond Blush
  • Antique Marionette


We've also got the Marionette Bundle for sale, since that item is, um... Just kind of insanely cool. You know what else is cool? That all those recolors and the Marionette Bundle are going to be sold at a 10% discount. Oh, and I've even tossed my ultimate favorites into the new Recolor Redux Bundle, and since I think they're, um... you know, really awesome, it'll be sold at a 40% discount. So, um. I think that's pretty neat. Maybe even a little inspiring. Startin' to feel the art bug kind of, um... Itching? Maybe it's allergies. I don't know. We'll have all these items in La Victoire until January 28, 11:59 PM EST so I guess come visit. If that's what you want. You can join Jet's little tea party.

Well, either way, I've got a great new item that's sure to bring out your inner highroller! It's called Pick a Card and it honestly couldn't be any simpler! Plus, you could come away with some totally amazing prizes, like these gorgeous items!

Or maybe you'd rather play your cards close to the vest? That's totally okay too! With Pick A Card, we've got something for everyone! All you have to do is choose the card that reflects how adventurous you're feeling. Wanna play it safe? Then pick the calmingly blue Safe Card! You could win up to 7.5 million gold or an item of similar value! Oh, but maybe you're feeling a little bolder? Then play the yellow Normal Card! By playing the Normal Card, you could win anywhere between 2 million gold or 50 million gold, or an item of similar value, but just remember -- you're not playing it safe anymore! Lastly, if you really want to take a chance, you could try playing the bright red Risky Card! This card offers the greatest rewards, but as the name implies, also the most risk! You could win anywhere between 500K to one billion gold, or an item of similar value! So, you ready to play? Then come visit La Victoire and try out a Pick A Card! They'll be in the shop until January 29th, 11:59 PM EST, so you've only got until then to place your bets!

Maaan, it's chilly outside lately! Why don't people make more cat-sized scarves, mittens, or caps? At least it's nice and cozy inside La Victoire, where the heat is always blasting no matter how much Cygnus complains about the electric bill. You'd think I'd be used to this kind of thing, since I come from the cold reaches of space and all that, but I was kind of hoping Gaia would be like a sunny paradise or something! But, you know, being unable to leave La Victoire because I don't wanna freeze to death outside, it does kind of give me an idea for a sale... A winter-themed one! Do you like bags? Do you like grabbing? How about grabbing bags? Because I am super into that, in case you couldn't tell. So we're gonna be offering a whole bunch of Winter's Grab Bags here at La Victoire, all themed around my least favorite season of all! Check 'em out!

-

We've got three different grab bags on offer, all of them pretty dang cool -- if you'll pardon the pun. Ahem! There's the Small Winter's Grab Bag, which can contain anything from the lovely Winter's Rose to the Prince of Icy Thieves, the Medium Winter's Grab Bag with slightly fancier gear, such as the adorable Dumpling the Bear or Snowy White Lass, and lastly the uber-chic Super Winter's Gift Grab Bag with great prizes such as the spectacular Queen of the Frozen North or even beautiful backwings! With amazing items like these, who cares about how totally icky and gross the weather is? We'll have these grab bags on offer until January 30th, 11:59 PM EST -- mostly because I'm hoping against hope it'll warm up by then. Stay toasty, you crazy kids!

Please, enjoy one of these super dry, unattractively named digestive biscuits! I hear they're absolutely exquisite! Also, please don't ask what happened to dear Mr. Porter -- I found him to be most disagreeable, and so it was off with his head! OHOHOHOHO. Now, where were we...

Cygnus: Uh. Gonna cut in here, before this gets even more creepy. So, Jet is still in this weird tea party phase. I'm kind of at a loss as to what to do. He beheaded one of my action figures for "boxing his ears" or something. I'm genuinely pretty concerned at this point. So, uh. I'm looking to end this tea party as soon as possible, otherwise I'm worried Jet's brains are going to be scrambled. Like, permanently. Or something. Just wanna remind you that when the tea party ends, all of our great Mad Tea Party Bundles leave along with it. Need a reminder of what's inside of 'em? Sure, here you go:


The Mad Hatter Bundle, Alice Bundle, Cheshire Cat Bundle, Queen of Hearts Bundle, and the mysterious Drink Me, Eat Me will only be in the shop until tonight: January 29th, 11:59 PM EST, so maybe consider dropping by some time soon.

Hola, Gaians! Y'know, the funny thing about a new year starting is that you kind of can't help reflecting on the past a little. The good times! The bad times! The uber cool items of years gone by! And while I'm usually not one for reflection, I do enjoy a good traipse down memory lane every now and again if said memories are filled with some sparkly, shimmery items of Gaia's history. Which gave me a great idea -- why not start off this new year with a little visit from some items that helped make the past years so great? So I put together a few things, and voila! New mini wings, scarves, and laurels!

We've got some awesome new recolors of some old Gaia favorites now stocked on our shelves: the lovely Ebon Laurels, Pure White Mini Angel Wings, Abyss Mini Angel Wings, Pure White Angelic Scarf, and the Abyss Angel Scarf!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement EI Report: Josie's Journey and introducing Adamant Vault! - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Jan 31, 2014 12:43 pm

Happy Friday, science fans! Can you believe it's the last day of January? This year feels like it's going by so fast I can scarcely keep up! Of course, being the competitive scientist that I am, I simply view time's frenetic pace as nothing more than a challenge. You think you're better than me, time? I'll show you! I'll make this the greatest year for Evolving Item-related research that the world has ever seen! Maybe that will teach you to slow down some, huh? Punk. Anyway, I'm well on my way to guaranteeing myself a place in the annals of scientific history with this latest update! Not only do we have another stunning evolution from Josie's Journey, but we've just discovered a brand new evolving item called Adamant Vault! Oh, the wonders of science. Let's take a look, shall we?

-


Josie's Journey: Josie and her new traveling partner introduced themselves to one another. His name was Rudo, a lonely young man as desperate for adventure as she was. In pursuit of some excitement, Rudo had foolishly tried to join a gang who promised to initiate him if he stole from a traveler. Unfortunately for him, he'd picked Josie as his first target -- that hadn't exactly worked out in his favor. Still, Rudo seemed relieved, and the more time Josie and Rudo spent together the more she realized how similar they truly were. He'd been a bookworm, just like Josie had, yearning for something more before studying abroad. Hadn't her own journey started in a very similar way?

Together, the pair traveled on Rudo's teal moped across the sweltering hot country, visiting different villages and towns. Josie had completely fallen in love with traveling, and she found the architecture of each new location to be absolutely fascinating. And the clothes! A vibrant mixture of traditional and modern, just like the buildings themselves. This helped spark Josie's interest in architecture and fashion, which eventually led to her career in Housing and Global Imports in the future.

Adamant Vault: It appears that you've inherited a safe that once belonged to a glamorous siren of the silver screen. It's rumored to contain some of her most precious valuables. The vault slowly creaks open, and you're briefly blinded by the sparkling brilliance it contains. The first thing that catches your eye, however, is a stunning diamond ring...


Ah! I love when things have that lovely "new Evolving Item" smell, don't you? That's all we have for this week, but be sure to tune in next Friday for our next Evolving Item Report! Oh, and don't forget to vote in this week's EI Poll and let us know what you think! You can see these beautiful evolutions and more in La Victoire. See you next week!

I'm just here to remind you that our awesome Lunar Sky Lanterns and Lunar Fortune Cookies won't be in La Victoire for much longer! Why are they so awesome? 'Cause they can help you score some really great prizes:

Also a bunch of Presidents have birthdays in February, so you know we gotta celebrate pretty hard for those rad dudes. Oh, and, ANDDDD the best part is there's apparently this gigantic football game where everybody gets together to eat tiny football-related snacks put in something called a "super bowl" that are laden with cheese and bacon. At least, that's how P.U.G. explained it to me. He also told me that the game itself is secondary to the bacon-related deliciousness, but I'm not sure he's right. Anyway, it's a pretty exciting month overall! So we're gonna have a little sale to celebrate everything February has to offer, featuring tons of awesome bundles full of great goodies! Check it out!

-

Lesse... We've got the February Love Bundle filled with tons of items sure to bring out your inner romantic, the February Shadow Bundle can no doubt help you predict whether we oughta expect some more cold weather or not (or you could just, I don't know, look out a window), the February President's Bundle will kit you out like political royalty, and finally the February Sunday Game Bundle has everything you need to cheer on your favorite team! We've also got the February Surprise Bundle, which gives you the chance to win any of the bundles listed above, or possibly even the super rare February Super Bundle, brimming with great, valuable items! So hey, let's kick the month off right, shall we? Visit La Victoire to check out these great bundles, as they'll be here until February 2, 11:59 PM EST! See you real soon, all right?

01 Incubi Wings for sale in La Victoire!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Incubi Wings for sale in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Fri Jan 31, 2014 2:49 pm

Cygnus: So, uh. Hello, everyone. Had a dream about flying the other night. Which is kind of weird, I guess, since most of my dreams are about the universe collapsing and the end of life as we know it and—well. They're usually a little, um... Complicated? So I guess it was kind of a pleasant change. I mean, not that flying is all that weird for me or anything. But a simple dream was kinda nice. So, y'know. Inspired me to maybe take my painter's brush to some wings, give it a shot. Came up with two new wing colors that I like a lot. Take a look if you don't believe me:

-

Kind of pretty, right? Especially the purple ones. I like the purple ones a lot. They're called Incubi's Amethyst Wings and Incubi's Emerald Wings, and I'm going to be selling them in La Victoire along with the original Incubi's Wings until February 2, 11:59 PM EST. I'll also be selling an Incubi's Wings Bundle if you wanna grab all of them. So, um. Hope you like it.

02 Beyond Black and Beyond Bundle now available in La Victoire!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Beyond Black and Beyond Bundle now available in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Fri Jan 31, 2014 4:09 pm

Cygnus: Um, hey guys. Cygnus again, back with more attempts at, uh... Artistry, I guess? You guys know I kind of have a thing for black and white recolors. I don't know, they just feel kind of classy. Like penguins. Or, um—you know, swans. So, I decided to color something else black and white, and I really like how it came out. Here, I put it on a little poster and everything, see?

-

I'm not super creative with names, so I'm just calling it Beyond Black. I think I did a pretty good job. I'm guessing the penguins and swans would probably approve. So, um—if you'd like, you can come pick it up at La Victoire. It'll be in the shop until February 3 at 11:59pm EST, so drop by if you want. Oh, uh, we're also going to be selling the Beyond Bundle as well. It's not only got Beyond Black, but also Beyond Brown and Beyond Blush, so it's pretty awesome, I think. Okay. Gotta go stock some shelves. See you later, or whatever.

02 Last chance to grab Nouvelle Lune!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Last chance to grab Nouvelle Lune! - [NPC] Ivan Fri Jan 31, 2014 1:40 pm

You know Gaians, I've got to say -- I've been basking in the moon's comforting glow for nearly a month now, and I feel a little... different. I think the term I'm looking for is "relaxed" although I'm not entirely certain. It's been so long since I felt at ease that I'm not exactly sure how it's supposed to feel any more! But, alas, the real world beckons. I can't ignore the work that has been piling up on my desk forever, and to be honest I'm starting to miss all the adding sums and subtracting digits and calculating the square roots of the hypotenuse -- you know, the usual kind of accountant fluff. The moon's distinct shine seems to be dimming anyway, and so it seems that it may be Nouvelle Lune's turn to shuffle off to that friendly place in the sky. But before the moon wanes into nothing, maybe you'd like to help Artemis achieve her dreams? There might be an incredible prize in it for you, like one of these lovely treasures!


Nouvelle Lune will be leaving La Victoire shortly, and thus my reintegration into real life must resume. I have to say that my bones are feeling quite robust though. The moonbathing totally worked! Here's hoping that you Gaians are just as fortunate as I am!

Bask in the Nouvelle Lune!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Cash Shop Bundle Surprise now available in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Fri Jan 31, 2014 2:49 pm

You know, we've had some pretty amazing bundles here in La Victoire. Even before Cygnus and I took over this joint, there have always been bundles of beautiful bounties, hasn't there? Tons of 'em! I have lots of ideas for future ones, too. Like a bundle with nothing but kimonos made out of cat food! Or one where you get a half-empty bottle of seltzer as a companion! Soooo cuuuutee. Of course, no one seems to think my bundle ideas are all that great, but you know. Sometimes genius just takes time to recognize. Anyway, that doesn't stop the bundles of ages past from being any less awesome, right? Which is why I've created this nifty little item! It's called the Cash Shop Bundle Surprise, and it's full of awesome prizes like these!

-

The Cash Shop Bundle Surprise is loaded with great bundles from the past—you never know what you're going to get! A Breezy Love Bundle, perhaps? Ultimate Race Bundle? Or maybe even a newer one, like Rosamund's Garland Bundle... You'll have to play to see what you get surprised with! So why not try one out and see if you like it? They'll be available until February 5, 11:59 PM EST, so drop by La Victoire and give it a whirl! See you then, Gaians!

03 Divinity's Reach is back!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Divinity's Reach is back! - [NPC] Mintaka & Rigel Mon Feb 03, 2014 12:50 pm

Greetings from the furthest, most fabulous reaches of space, Gaians! We've been watching Gaia from afar when we suddenly came to a terrible realization: we hadn't visited recently! Well, rather than deprive any of you of our wonderful company, we decided to catch the quickest wormhole and space shimmy our way down to your lovely planet! And, of course, we brought lots of Divinity's Reach with us! We haven't been gone so long that you've forgotten it, have you? Here, have a quick reminder!


Divinity's Reach is full of heavenly rewards, from sacks of gold to beautiful, super rare items! You can score up to five million gold, a popular Chance Item, one of a variety of gorgeous backwings, or possibly even a valuable 2003 Monthly Collectible! Oh, you lucky Gaians you. Not only do you get the opportunity to play some Divinity's Reach, but you also get the chance to spend more time with us! We'd no doubt be jealous, were it not for the fact that we are us. Hmm, well—maybe we can still be a little envious anyway. Unfortunately, we can't stay for long! We'll be leaving tonight, at 11:59 PM EST, so please drop by La Victoire and pay us a visit before then. We'd love to see your lovely little faces!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Dyrfinna and Renard Doll Recolors in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Mon Feb 03, 2014 12:54 pm

Cygnus: So, um... For those of you who might know a little bit about me, you may have heard of my extensive action figure collection. It's not a big deal. Y'know -- Jet tries to make it out like I've got like, some kind of weird obsession or whatever. But I don't. I just like to, uh... collect. And sometimes I like to customize, you know? Normally I don't show anyone, but I'm pretty pleased with how these came out, so I guess I can let you see.

-

There's two of them: SDPlus R #424 Renard and SDPlus R #425 Dyrfinna the All Wise. I improved Dyrfinna immensely by adding some much needed purple to her, and I gave Renard some pretty bright, awesome hair. I, um... I think they're pretty good! As good as the originals, I wanna say. Of course I can't really be the judge of that, so uh... Maybe stop by La Victoire and tell me what you think? They'll be in the shop until February 4th, 11:59 PM EST if you wanna take a look. So, I guess... Thanks in advance? Okay.

Man, I totally nailed it today. Found such an amazing treat that I just can't wait to share it with you all! Here, take a gander at this gorgeous new item set I found!

-

It's called Brisk Stroll and I pretty much look darling in it. But, much as I'd like to keep this pretty little thing to myself, I can't help but wanna share it with you guys too. And so Brisk Stroll will be on our shelves until February 5, 11:59 PM EST! We've only got a limited number to sell, since it was pretty difficult securing a decent supply of these beautiful sets, but hopefully they'll all go to good Gaian homes where they'll be loved and cherished forever and ever... Maaaan, I really do wish I could keep one. Well, please drop by La Victoire and take a look! See you around, I hope!

Yo. It's your pal Nicolae, back again with products perfect for a distinguished customer such as yourself. Interested in what I got? Sure you are. Why wouldn't you be? C'mere, you gotta get closer.

Well, I managed to find more of it, and it's still loaded with great prizes like these...

'Cept this coin is a little... different. Let's just say you've got some real influence over the outcome, you get me? So, you wanna play? Maybe Lady Luck is gonna favor you. Maybe she won't. But you look lucky to me, I gotta say. Only one way to find out if we're both right. I'll be hanging outside of La Victoire until tonight, at 3:00 AM EST. I got... other business to attend to after that, so I'll be packing up my things by then. Why don't you drop by? Tell a few friends? Just so long as they aren't guards.

04 It's a Butterfly Garden Sale in La Victoire!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement It's a Butterfly Garden Sale in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Mon Feb 03, 2014 3:34 pm

Cygnus: Okay, so. Jet's been watching a lot of old martial arts movies lately. They're kind of fun. Somewhat less charming when Jet decides to practice the moves he "learned" on me afterwards, but you know. He's a cat. It's not really a problem until he suddenly remembers he has claws. Anyway, those movies got me thinking about an item I'd been planning to color for a while, so... I did. Twice, in fact. So, um—here, if you wanna see for yourself...

-

Got two new versions here in a cute pink and a slightly tougher looking navy blue. Butterfly Strike and Butterfly Block are now both available in La Victoire, and will be in the shop until February 5, 11:59 PM EST. I've also found an extra box of Butterfly Punch, so we're all stocked up on that as well. But if you're looking to snag the whole collection, you might wanna check out the Butterfly Garden Bundle. It's got all the recolors I already mentioned, plus Butterfly Kick and Butterfly Jab. Maybe you wanna pick one up and use it to test out your martial arts skills? Could be worth a shot, I guess. At least you'll look awesome doing it. So, um. Stop by La Victoire when you can. Jet's feeling chatty and I'm not much for conversation, so I'm sure he'd like someone else to be around.

Includes his collared shirt, pants and booties, tailed vest, bunny bag, golden hair, and of course a tea cup!

The Hostess of Illogical Tea seems to only have a loose affiliation with reality (and sanity) but that doesn't make her any less of an amazing host! Just don't expect to get any kind of sensible conversation out of her. Includes her blouse, puffy skirt, elegant heels, unruly hair, stacked hat, and a little tea pot!

Chase the Bunny: Make sure you don't linger at the Mad Tea Party too long, as this adorable little bunny is trying to adhere to a tight schedule! Don't make him late for any of his important dates!

Hello, my lucky little Gaians! Becky again, looking to play some Let It Ride or some Pick A Card! You guys wanna try playing a round? Could be a lot of fun! Plus I could use the practice at dealing. I mean, I've dealt games before, but the only players I ever have are usually body pillows... Anyway, I'm always stuck behind the counter at Prize and Joy, so I'll take any opportunity to play some games with real people! You guys will help indulge me, right? I even put together the perfect little bundle for it! But before we get into the details, let me remind you of all the amazing things you could win!


Need the rules explained to you? Sure! With Pick A Card all you have to do is choose the card that reflects how adventurous you're feeling and you could win tons of gold or a valuable item. Just remember that the bigger rewards come with bigger risks!

If you score gold with your Let It Ride card, you'll have the option to LET IT RIDE! If you're successful, you'll win double the amount of gold you originally scored! If you aren't successful, you'll walk away with half the original amount you won. I've loaded both of these great games into a single bundle called Deck of Cards so you can try them both out! It'll be available until February 5th, 3:00 AM EST because unfortunately I can't be away from Prize and Joy for too long. Ooooh, I'm so excited! May the odds be in your favor, guys!

You know who loves the heck out of tea parties? PRINCESSES. And not just because sipping tea daintily from a tea cup with your pinky finger raised makes you feel like delicate royalty! I mean, I can't even raise my pinky finger, on account of not exactly having one. But a tea party is, like, the epitome of everything it is to be a princess! Porcelain! Froofy dresses! Cute little cakes with silly French names! But I bet if we had a bunch of actual princesses muckin' around my party, we'd really class up this joint, right? So why not sell some of the best Princess Bundles we've ever had? That's right! Rosamund's Garland Bundle and the Princess Voyage Bundle are back in La Victoire, just in time to really help us make this a royal affair!

-

So whaddayah say, Gaians? Wanna feel like royalty? Then check out these two totally sweet bundles! They'll be in La Victoire until tonight, at 11:59 PM EST—after that Cygnus usually gets kind of cranky about his beauty sleep, so I have to pause the party around then. Hope you drop by La Victoire!

Sigh. Well, February is here, and I'm still without a sweetheart. I've recovered somewhat from my earlier depression, however. Besides, who needs relationships? The only excitement I ever need is seeing the seal on my Advance Chance weaken, and it appears that February's Advance Chance refuses to disappoint! I can see the edges tapering off already. What enticing rewards wait inside? Oh, I can hardly stand the suspense!

What will the next CI be? Nobody is quite sure, but you’ll get the first crack at it with the February Advance Chance. On the day of the next CI release, you’ll be able to open your bundle and start reaping the rewards of your CIs hours before they’re released to the general public, so you can start listing items on the Marketplace when hardly anyone has their hands on them yet.


I'm now 100% positive that some old items that have gone below a certain value have been removed. Now then, if you'll excuse—oop, hang on, sorry! Looks like I've got a message...

kanokococoa17: ivaaaaaan, have you heard anything from rina lately??
BuffboyIvan: No, I haven't. Why?
kanokococoa17: oh no... that's probably not good brb


Huh. Strange. Well, none of my business! If you'd like to pick up an Advance Chance, they'll still be available in La Victoire for a little while longer!

Oh, and then he drank like half of my tea and ate like twenty of my maple bacon scones. Then he started acting all loopy and, like... dancing? I don't know, guys. That dog is whack. But I got boxes of Minty Catwalk delivered to me today, and lemme tell you that it does NOT disappoint! I can be a little picky about items with the word "cat" in it -- I have my pride, you know -- but this dang set is so adorable and fresh I can barely stand it. See for yourself!

-

Super cute, right? And pretty dang stylish. For all his faults, that P.U.G. has pretty good taste. Anyway, it's all stocked up in La Victoire now! You oughta stop by to try it on and strut your stuff a little! Or if you wanna just stop by for some tea. But we're all out of maple bacon scones now, though. You can blame P.U.G. for that one.

Cygnus: Um. Hi, Gaians. So, with Jet throwing his "mad tea party" or whatever he's calling it, and pointedly uninviting me in his announcement, I decided to have some of my own tea-related fun. You all know that a while back that weird girl Kanoko kinda went... through the looking glass or something, right? Maybe she found a tea party of her own while she was there. I don't know. She doesn't really talk about it. And I don't really talk period. But her outfit was kinda cute, so I decided to, um... Well, put my own spin on it. So I made two new versions. Here, if you wanna see...

-

We've got the minty Kanoko's Fancy and the silvery Kanoko's Dream. Kinda nice, right? I worked hard on them, but you know... I guess maybe I should see if Kanoko likes 'em. I didn't think to ask her. But whatever, she's been kind of hard to find lately anyway. So, uh. If you like them, or wanna see them up close, or anything else I guess, then maybe drop by La Victoire. We'll also be selling a bundle of the entire Kanoko line called Kanoko's Delusions of Grandeur. (No offense, Kanoko. You're kinda weird.) They'll be in stock until February 6, 11:59 PM EST, so uh... Drop by? I guess? It'd be neat to see you, so long as you don't talk to me. Okay, um. Bye.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Kanoko is worried that Rina is In Deep Ship! Can you help? - [NPC] Kanoko Tue Feb 04, 2014 1:07 pm

Um, hi Gaians! I'm Kanoko, you guys might recognize me from Dernier Cri? Or maybe from one of the seemingly thousands of jobs I've held in the past. Normally I'm not one for big speeches or anything like that, but I'm so worried about Rina that I don't know what else to do! She hasn't been outside of her home in months, and the last time I visited her all she talked about was Dropplr, and her favorite OTPs, and I just don't think it's very good! I gave her some time to hopefully come back to her senses, but I think maybe I ought to visit her and see how she's doing? Brennivin agreed to give me the time off work -- at least, I think he did, he's kind of hard to understand -- so I've decided to head over to her home now and maybe check on her a little. If worst comes to worst, I guess I can always grab her computer and run outside with it so she'll have to follow me! Although I'm a little worried that won't work, since Rina really seems to be stuck In Deep Ship. I can understand her problem, though. That Dropplr site is so enticing! But maybe if you guys lend a hand, I might be able to reward you with a Cash Shop favorite, a valuable rare item, or maybe one of these romantic new exclusives:

-

They really are super nice... But that's not the point! The point is we have to save Rina. From herself! And her weird obsession with "shipping" things, or whatever it's called! Please, Gaians, can I have your support? Not so much for Rina as it is for myself! Because I know she's going to try and pull me into this craziness too. So please take a look at In Deep Ship and help me save Rina! Or if you really want to pitch in, you could maybe pick up a bundle of nine? Thank you so much, guys!

Help save Rina from In Deep Ship!

Y'know, being a star kitten is rough sometimes. Not only do I not have opposable thumbs—which, from what I can gather, are super duper handy for working the can opener—but I don't even have things like eyebrows! Do you know how awesome eyebrows are? I gotta contort my face all sorts of crazy ways just to pull off an expression a Gaian could do in like, three seconds by quirking an eyebrow. You guys and your full range of facial expressions have it made. Which is why I'm pretty dang jealous that you guys can use these amazing new Adoring Loving Manner, Doting Loving Manner, Raging Loathing Style, and Scornful Loathing Style!

Everyone, I've got incredible news! I was working late one night, experimenting with some dangerously chic hairstyles, when I noticed something super strange: all the hair clippings on the floor had combined together into this weird mass, like some sort of super furry Boltron! It didn't seem to be moving or anything, so I picked it up and tried to pull all the hairs apart -- and this is where it gets weird, guys. As I split the hairs apart, I discovered another totally awesome, perfectly intact wig sitting right in the middle of it all. Oh, it was glorious! But kind of strange? I mean, it looks amazing. But how did it get there? Maybe I shouldn't have bought those off-brand wigs from Dr. Singh's lab to experiment on... Anyway, I was so confused that I trimmed another of those wigs, and another, and another, and each time the discarded hair clippings fused together! And, in the center of each and every one of them, was a super fashionable new hairstyle that I've never even seen before. I know it sounds crazy, but it's true! Here, I'll show you:

-

Much as I wish I could keep all these great 'dos to myself, it's only fair to share 'em with other Gaians, I think. So I've put a bunch of these hairy surprises in La Victoire! You oughta try Splitting Hairs to see what amazing new styles you might win! Who knows? It might be just the thing to complete your look!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Limited Quantity Item: Lulu Saloon in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Wed Feb 05, 2014 4:10 pm

Hello, fashionable Gaians! Not many people know this about me, but I've got kind of a soft spot in my heart for the Old West. Y'know—cowboys, exploring the great unknown, shootouts, those shiny little sheriff badge things. The ones shaped like a star? Man, I would look totally awesome with one of those. But you wanna know the greatest thing about the Old West? Those fancy saloons! With the piano player and the sarsaparilla and the totally boss swinging doors (I oughta install those in La Victoire) and, of course, those kicky saloon gals. Well, consider today's item a tribute to those fine ladies of yore! Feast your eyes, my dear friends:

-

Say hello to the lovely Lulu Saloon, folks! Fresh off the market, here to impress you with its amazing dance moves! It's available now in La Victoire, and will be there until February 9, 11:59 PM EST—or until it sells out. I was only able to procure a limited amount of this super cute item, so that is definitely a possibility! Drop by La Victoire if you wanna take a peek at it, okay? I'm going to have old timey piano music playing on the speakers all day. Hope you like vaudeville!

Ahoy, Gaians! You know, I've been hitting the whole piracy game pretty hard, lately. Not that piracy is a bad thing! Well, I mean, it kind of is—but for the people being pirated, not for good ol' Cap'n Flynn! I've scored more treasure than I know what to do with, honestly. So why not give some awesome Gaians a chance at some of my amazing profit? Besides, I could use the break. Maybe I'll visit a spa while I'm visiting... I do like those fizzy drinks with umbrellas. Well, anyway! Flynn's Booty and Flynn's Chest are both back in La Victoire, and they'll be available until February 7, 11:59 PM EST. That should be enough time for me to unwind a little, right? Oh, and just in case you didn't know, each Booty has the chance to contain up to 100 million gold and my Chest contains up to 250 million gold! And you know what? Since I'm in such an amazing mood, Flynn's Chest, the Flynn's Chest Bundle, and the Flynn's Booty Bundle will all be sold at a discount! Ahh—I'm feeling more relaxed already. Drop by La Victoire if you're interested in taking a look!

07 EI Report: Adamant Vault and Josie's JourneyEdit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement EI Report: Adamant Vault and Josie's Journey - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Feb 07, 2014 1:24 pm

It's the first Friday of February, my adorable little sundaes of science! You know what that means, don't you? A brand new EI Report! I've had many sleepless nights formulating this one, let me tell you. Mostly because I invented a new pill that keeps you up for weeks at a time, and no one was willing to let me test it on them! Can you believe it? Some people just aren't willing to do what it takes in the name of science, Gaians. How sad. Either way, beyond the mild auditory hallucinations I'm feeling FANTASTIC! The voices in my head are telling me it's time to get this show on the road, so let's see what we've got on the dossier for today, shall we? It seems like Adamant Vault has evolved once more, and Josie's Journey is coming to an absolutely spectacular finish!

-


Adamant Vault: With the brilliant ring currently sparkling away on your finger, you further explore the starlet's stunning diamond collection. It isn't long before you discover two beautiful new pieces that take your breath away: a dramatic pair of earrings and a sparkling set of bracelets.

Josie's Journey: After a summer full of travel and sightseeing, Josie realized that her journey finally had to come to an end. She and Rudo had spent the entire season roaming across the country, exploring everything their small part of the world had to offer. But Rudo insisted there was one more stop on their trip: his palace. Although he'd kept it hidden from Josie, Rudo was actually descended from a long line of wealthy royals. He spent his entire life cooped up in the palace, unable to experience life outside of its decadent walls, until he finally made a decision to run away and see what the world had to offer. Perhaps he'd been a little naive at first -- trying to join a gang, he realized, was probably not the smartest move -- but traveling with Josie had truly opened his eyes. And although Josie was initially shocked and reluctant to have Rudo spoil her, she eventually relented and allowed him to give her a magnificent gown. The prince's return home was celebrated with a lavish ball, and Josie and Rudo spent the entire night dancing together before finally parting ways.

However, the two of them promised to always keep in touch and eventually travel the world together. Unfortunately, Josie's years at her university and then running Global Imports keeps her fairly busy. Although their busy schedules are rarely in sync, Rudo still finds ways to help Josie where he can. As a traveling business man, he flies around the world looking for new fashions and clothes to export to Global Imports. And while Josie hasn't achieved her dream of exploring the globe yet, she knows that one day she'll travel and see everything the world has to offer. For now, though? Josie is more than happy where she is, providing Gaians with the beautiful clothes from the places that she longs to one day visit.


Fascinating! Even the voices in my head are cheering with joy! Which is kind of a relief, because they're usually telling me to set things on fire. Anyway, that's all we have time for this week, but be sure to keep an eye out for next Friday's EI Report! Let us know which Evolving Item was your favorite in our Weekly EI Poll, and don't forget you can see all these beautiful items and more in La Victoire! See you next time, junior scientists!

08 Win a fun treat by choosing a Candy Heart!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Win a fun treat by choosing a Candy Heart! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Fri Feb 07, 2014 1:13 pm

Oh man. You know what's coming up? Valentine's Day. I LOVE Valentine's day. Not that I'm super into romance or all that mushy whatever nonsense -- that's more Cygnus' thing, even though he won't admit it -- but you know what I am totally into? Candy. Lots of it. And Valentine's Day means tons and tons of candy available. Chocolates, lollipops, chocolate lollipops... Need I go on? Oh, but you know what the most fun V-day candy is? Those little sugary hearts with the funny phrases on 'em. I mean, they taste kind of like cherry-flavored chalk, but they're just so kitschy and cute that I can't help but love 'em! Which is why I've decided to put a whole big, giant bowl of 'em here in La Victoire. The cool thing about these candies, though, is that they come with PRIZES. Oh man, that's right. Super nice prizes. See for yourself!


The way our sweet little Candy Hearts work is that you pick a heart, and then you get to pick your prize: you can choose to receive a random valuable item such as Ribbon Candy or Kandi Kitten, or up to 250 million gold! There is even a neat little bundle pack if you wanna give it to your someone special! Oh, and I even got some of my awesome fellow shopkeepers to write little notes on 'em. I wouldn't take 'em too seriously, 'cause I think more than a few of them were on sugar highs of their own when they wrote their messages, but they're still fun. These tasty treats will be available until February 9th, 11:59 PM EST! Can't wait to see you in La Victoire!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement New Juno's Lace recolors available in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Fri Feb 07, 2014 1:17 pm

Cygnus: Hi, guys. So, you know. I've been putting out some darker recolors as of late. And that's cool, I think. I like dark. But, I guess I need a change of pace sometimes? So I fiddled around with a few different colors for a while, trying to find some that really spoke to me. Or, um... Something that sounds less cheesy than that. Anyway, it took kind of a while, but eventually I found a couple of different shades that I really liked working with. Here they are, if you wanna see.

-

Not bad, right? There's the red Jupiter's Lace, the cream Uni's Lace, and my personal favorite in lavender, Minerva's Lace. You can pick them up in La Victoire if you'd like to. We're also selling the Oodles of Lace Bundle containing the entire collection. They'll be in La Victoire until February 9, 11:59 PM EST so drop by, if that's what you want. Okay, um. Bye for now.

09 House of Manifold now available in La Victoire!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement House of Manifold now available in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Fri Feb 07, 2014 1:15 pm

Cygnus: Um, hey everyone. Still kind of on a recoloring roll here, I guess you could say. That guy Loyal stopped by for a second—getting some advice on how to set up a register, or something—and he peeked at what I was doing. I was kinda annoyed, since I don't really appreciate being snooped on, but he told me about an item from his carnival he'd like to see me try coloring, and... Well. It was kind of a good idea. So after he left I worked on it a little and, uh... Yeah, I hate to say it, but the weirdo was right. It came out pretty good, see?

-

I'm calling it House of Manifold and you can pick it up from La Victoire, if you'd like. Oh, and we also have the Mirror Mirror Bundle, which contains both my version, the original, and Cassiopeia's Vanity as a special bonus. They'll be available until February 10, 11:59 PM EST. So, uh... Thanks to Loyal for the inspiration, I guess. He's really strange but he seems like he's all right.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement La Bella Stretto and La Belle Ortolan now in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Fri Feb 07, 2014 1:16 pm

Cygnus: So, apparently I've been bit by the coloring bug. That's what Jet is saying, anyway. I guess he's kinda right. Normally when I'm not working in the shop I'm playing one of the Revolution Trilogy games, or just spending time with myself thinking, or... Whatever, other stuff. Not usually doing anything too productive, I guess. But I really like coloring? It's relaxing. So, you know. Guess I'm gonna just... Um. Keep at it? If you guys don't mind. Anyway, enough of my babbling. Maybe you guys wanna see the new items I've colored? I've got two I've been working on, if you wanna take a peek.

-

Not bad, I don't think. They're called La Belle Ortolan and La Bella Stretto—see if you can sort out which is which. So, uh. If you like 'em, maybe stop by La Victoire and give them a closer look. We'll also be selling La Belle Chanteuse, La Bella Figura, Li Bello Forma, and two bundles: the La Bella Bundle, and the La Belle Bundle. Um... They'll be in the shop until February 11, 11:59 PM EST so I guess I'll see you around. Bye.

10 Candy Hearts are back!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Candy Hearts are back! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Sat Feb 08, 2014 3:40 pm; 10th

Jet: Oof. Ugh. Okay. I may have... Maybe I overdid it a little. I ate about seven hundred of those candy hearts and I'm starting to think that might not have been the best idea I've ever had. But I just couldn't stop! They're so bite-size and sweet and I look adorable stuffing them in my face on account of my super tiny size. Look at me holding this candy heart! It's almost normal size in my itty bitty kitty paws! Oh no. Now I feel compelled to eat it. No, Jet! Resist! Resist its delicate pink allure! Don't do it -- OMPHNOMPHMOM

Cygnus: Oookay, Jet has clearly gone off the deep end here so I'm gonna finish this up. So, um. We still got a bunch of Candy Hearts. Bowls and bowls of 'em. Jet's snacked his way through... I wanna say half? But I'm not touching 'em -- not crazy about sweets -- and so there should be plenty left for you guys. So, we're bringing 'em back for a little bit. They've got some pretty nice prizes you could win, too. Here, see for yourself:


The way Candy Hearts work is that you pick a heart, and then you get to pick your prize: you can choose to receive a random valuable item such as Ribbon Candy or Kandi Kitten, or up to 250 million gold! They've got some fun phrases from other shopkeepers that Jet annoyed into leaving messages, too. He tried to elbow me into it but I'm pretty immune to that sort of thing these days. Anyway, um... They'll be available until February 10th, 11:59 PM EST. Jet just passed out so I think I'm gonna go make sure he's still breathing and stuff. See you around La Victoire.

10 Get a head start on February's 2nd CI with Advance Chance!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Get a head start on February's 2nd CI with Advance Chance! - [NPC] Ivan Sat Feb 08, 2014 3:10 pm

You know, there are a lot more things that go into working for the GRS than most people think. Beyond all the tabulating and the percentages lies an entire unknown Underworld filled with danger and intrigue, where beautiful women burdened with terrible secrets are all drawn to one incredibly handsome man in particular: Ilan McGladstone, Tax Accountant. You can read all about it in my upcoming self-published novel "Ilan McGladstone, Tax Accountant: Rock God" which follows Ilan's dangerous adventures as he descends into the GRS' top secret basements, all the while moonlighting as a popular rock musician whose amazing ballads have the power to make women swoon and move men to tears. It's got romance! Villains! Guitar solos! Damsels in distress! A Greek chorus that seems weirdly out of place but I use it as a framing device and it works I swear! The only thing I can think of that's better than my novel is this month's second Advance Chance, which has finally arrived!

What will the next CI be? Nobody is quite sure, but you’ll get the first crack at it with the February Advance Chance II. On the day of the next CI release, you’ll be able to open your bundle and start reaping the rewards of your CIs hours before they’re released to the general public, so you can start listing items on the Marketplace when hardly anyone has their hands on them yet.


Since it's a still a little unusual to have two Advance Chances in one month, I went ahead and gave this one a quick shake just to make sure everything checked out. Just as noisy as all previous ones! I'm confident that this is just like any other normal CI, filled with plenty of wonderful new items, rares—even an adorable new pet! I guess my only problem is I don't want it to compete with my amazing book release... Hopefully, the gods will be merciful! You can pick up an Advance Chance of your own in La Victoire! And talk to me if you'd like to, ahem, preordermyamazingnovelcomingoutsoon.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Get fancy with new makeup available in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Mon Feb 10, 2014 1:51 pm

Y'know, it takes a lot of work to look as good as I do. I spend hours upon hours brushing my fur to a glossy sheen, for one. Do you think that's easy? No way, man. My arms are super adorable but also kind of small, and Cygnus usually completely ignores my requests for help with my grooming. But that's not even the hardest part! You've noticed how I always sparkle, right? Like a beautiful gemstone? Well, I'm here to tell you that it's... one hundred percent completely natural. My distinct shimmer is all mine, baby! But that doesn't mean I don't like to enhance it a little. Nothing crazy! But enough to give my glittering beauty some extra oomph. We all need a little extra sparkle, sometimes, and I'm nothing if not sympathetic towards that. Which is why I've designed a bunch of super spiffy blushes, eyeshadows, and lipsticks to help you look just (well, let's be realistic here, almost) as good as I do! Take a look at what I've got in store:

-

Pretty awesome, am I right? There's a whole bunch of 'em, so I'm going to make a super handy list!

• Smiling Lips
• Cupid Lips
• Fine Lips
• Hollywood Lips
• Slash Blush
• Cheek Sparkles
• High Blush
• Across Blush
• Undereye Eyeshadow
• Sparkle Eyeshadow
• Threetoned Eyeshadow
• Eyeshadow Sweep


We've also got some super convenient makeup bundles loaded with everything you need to feel glamorous! There's the Lip Bundle with all the lovely lipsticks, the Blush Bundle with our new blushes, the Eyeshadow Bundle full of our great new shadows, and finally the Mega-Super Beauty Bundle with all of our new makeup products! Oh, and best of all is the amazing Full Makeover Bundle, which contains all the new makeup and three Splitting Hairs to make you completely gorgeous! Finally, a chance to look as fabulous as I feel. Uh, I mean as you feel. Or, heck—how we both feel! They'll be in La Victoire for a while yet, so why not drop by and put on some spackle to make you sparkle? We can even exchange beauty tips!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Spread the love with Roses and Romance for a great prize! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Tue Feb 11, 2014 1:17 pm

All right, I may have mentioned in the past that I'm not exactly one for romance. And that's still completely true! But, y'know, as I was lying on the floor in a Candy Heart-induced coma, I got to thinking... Life is too short, you know? I mean, not my life. I'm a kitten star and we pretty much kick butt until we go supernova, which generally doesn't happen for a few eons or so. But your lives, Gaians! Your lives are so short in comparison! So I just wanted to say that... Oh man. That I love you guys. H-hang on, something got in my eye... AHEM. Anyway, that mushiness aside, February apparently is really the month to show someone that you care. And I wanna help out with that a bit! So I snuck into Rina's garden and snipped a few roses, arranged 'em all nicely, and ta-da! Roses and Romance galore! These gorgeous bouquets don't only look pretty, though; they come loaded with awesome prizes like these!


With Roses and Romance, you could win up to 250 million gold or great prizes, like Anurla's Amulet or even Rosamund's Rage! It's really simple: after you read your message (supplied by a totally willing to help shopkeeper, I swear) you get to choose whether you want an item prize or gold, and voila! Mystery presents abound! Is there anything more romantic than surprises? Well, I guess a bundle of a dozen would be pretty nice -- thankfully for you, we've got that as well! So why not drop by La Victoire and pick up a bouquet for your someone sweet? They'll be available until February 14th, 11:59 PM EST. Hope to see you soon!

Okay, so it's no secret that kittens are kind of the greatest thing ever. How could they not be? I mean, I'm a kitten and I'm obviously the most wonderful creature to have ever existed, and so by that logic kittens themselves must be absolutely amazing. And they are! Soft and fluffy, with little teeny tiny paws and whiskers—honestly, what could be better? I don't even need to hype up this sale that much, honestly. It's full of adorable kittens. What more can I say? How could I possibly make that better? Just take a look and get ready to have your heart melted like a candy bar left outside on a summer day:

-

HNGGGHH. The cuteness! Even for a lovable kitten star like me, it's almost too much! Blue Belle, Golden Belle, and Copper Belle are all looking for some good homes to go to, so why not swing by and see if there's one you'd like to adopt? Or, if you can't decide between them (and who could, honestly, I mean look at their little faces!), we'll be offering the Mewling Belle Bundle with all three of the Belles! Why not pick up a few and surprise your sweetheart with a house full of cats? I mean, I can't think of any gesture more romantic than that. Don't let the overt cuteness fool you—we kittens are masters of the art of seduction. They'll be available until February 14, 11:59 PM EST so visit La Victoire to coo over the cuddliness!

Cygnus: So, you all know that Valentine's Day is coming up pretty soon. And whatever, that's fine. You know, it's not like I need a sweetheart or anything. I don't. I don't care. Not having to worry about romantic dinners and that sort of mushy stuff just means I have more time to enjoy my hobbies. Um... Like watching the shop. Or rearranging the stuff on the shelves. Or organizing our inventory. Or thinking about how we're all in an endless spiral towards our own destruction. I'm just too busy to worry about Valentine's Day, obviously. But I did manage to get a little painting done as well, and what with this being the season for gushy romances and all that... Anyway, I colored something I thought would be relevant. Here, if you wanna see:

-

Seven Day Empathy and Seven Day Misery. They seem pretty seasonally appropriate, right? Particularly the "misery" part. Ugh. They're available now in La Victoire, along with the Seven Day Bundle which has both new versions and Seven Day Love for good measure. They'll be on the shelves until February 14th, 11:59 PM EST when this ridiculous saccharine torment will finally be over -- I hope. See you around.

Uh-oh. Okay, so you guys know we just had a bunch of adorable kittens in the shop, right? I mean, besides me. No, no Jet -- now is not the time to self-congratulate on how awesome you are! AHEM. Anyway, so it looks like word got out that we were helping these cute kitties get adopted, or I don't know, something like that. And now a bunch of new kittens just showed up at the door. I've never even seen these guys before! It looks like they all need good homes too... Initially I was going to send them away but then Cygnus gave me one of his patented Stern Looks and, well. The rest is history, as they say. He's too busy indulging in kitty cuddle piles to even help me with this announcement. It was hard but I managed to wrangle them all into one photo together, if you wanna see all their lovable kitty faces.

-

Does anyone want to take home an Itty Bitty Kitty? It's really simple: just open the box and see which kitty you end up with! And to make things even more exciting, some come with a special animated pose just to load up on the "d'awww" factor. No matter which kitten surprises you, I'm sure they'll shower you with love and headbutts and loud, incessant mewling! I mean, who wouldn't wanna adopt one of these guys, right? If you really want to help out you could even get an Itty Bitty Kitty Bundle full of the adorable little buggers! Anyway, it's nice having so many new friends mucking about, but I gotta say that I'm starting to think La Victoire is a one kitten kind of deal, you get me? Not that I'm jealous or anything! I mean, I am the cutest. Yes. Okay. See you soon!

You know what? The life of a shopkeeper ain't easy. Most people just assume that it's all "napping behind the register" or "napping on a shelf" or even "napping in the middle of the floor because you told Cygnus to do inventory and the sun happens to be shining right on that spot and it looks all warm and lovely" or you know... Maybe something less specific than that. But you get my point! And I'm here to tell you that we work hard. Real hard! But sometimes all that scrimping and bothering contacts for leads and all that—it pays off. And today? It REALLY paid off. We've got a brand new, absolutely gorgeous item to put on the shelves today, and I couldn't be happier! Take a peek:

-

The fruits of my labor, ladies and gents! This is the lovely Mousseux Drops, a rare item I managed to procure with my amazing shopkeeperly (that is a word now, by the way) abilities. Unfortunately I'm not that great a negotiator, and so I only managed to secure a limited amount of them. Still, I think it was worth the effort, don't you?

You know it just wouldn't be a proper Valentine's Day without a little thrilling drama, right? And what could possibly be more romantically entangling than a crazy love triangle? Well, now that I think about it... A love square, I guess. Or a love parallelogram. Maybe a love dodecagon. But those all sound kind of unwieldy, so love triangle it is! Unrequited passion is the theme of today's bundle, and lemme tell you that it's pretty spectacular! I guess you could say that I've really fallen for it. Eh? Ehhh? Oh stop groaning Cygnus, it's not like you could do any better. Anyway, without any further ado, allow me to introduce the incredible Love Triangle Bundle!

-


Modern Miko: Tasked with keeping her temple in order, the Modern Miko thought she had no room in her life for love. At least until the fateful day that a handsome prince walked into her temple, and she felt a peculiar flutter in her chest unlike anything she'd ever felt before. From that moment on, everything changed. Includes her fashionable dress, short coat, traditional shoes, headband, and sideswept hair.

The Smooth Imperialist lived a life of luxury, free from responsibility or deep emotion. A wealthy playboy, it never even occurred to him that he might fall in love—let alone fall in love twice. Torn between his love for a beautiful princess and a sweet priestess, he must choose who will win his heart. Includes his ornate coat, embellished hat, decorated boots, trailing black hair, and fan.

Princess Azalea: Royalty through and through, the young Princess Azalea is the crown jewel of the court. Although she could have any man she wished, she's set her eyes upon a certain dashing prince and is determined to win him over. Includes her flowing dress, coat, delicate boots, flowery crown, and opulently styled hair.

Available exclusively in the Love Triangle Bundle is the adorable Love Fox! With a passion for matchmaking, maybe this sweet fox is just the thing to help with this tricky triangle. Includes several foxy poses, elegant sleeves, and a glowing forehead jewel.


Wow! I gotta say, I'm feeling pretty romantical right now. Y'know, lovely ladies of this bundle—that prince ain't got nothing on me. I mean sure, he's super handsome. But does he sparkle like this?! No way! Just putting it out there. Anyway, this fabulous bundle is available now in La Victoire, so why not stop by and take a look around! Who knows, you might just find that special someone (or sometwo) browsing as well!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Valentine's Day Surprise Bundles in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Thu Feb 13, 2014 9:52 am

So, I've already told you my favorite things about Valentine's Day, right? It's candy, mostly. Because who doesn't like candy? But there is one more thing that I really really like about this particularly holiday: gifts. You get 'em all over the place! But here's the thing—who wants a gift of jewelry or flowers? Pfft. That's boring. Don't worry though, I've got you guys covered. I've come up with a ton of bundles for you Gaians out there, perfect to give to your particular sweetheart! Or, you know, selfishly keep to yourselves. (Which is what I would do, personally.) They're filled with totally awesome goodies, so why not take a peek at all I have to offer?

-

Totally awesome, right? Look, I even made a super convenient list for you!

• Valentine's Chocolate Bundle
• Valentine's Hearts Bundle
• Valentine's Anti-Hearts Bundle
• Valentine's Plushie Bundle
• Valentine's Sweetheart Bundle
• Valentine's Temptation Bundle

Anyone who gifts an item from La Victoire or Club Verge will receive a 10% discount coupon on Gaia Cash for helping to spread the love! It's a deal almost as sweet as candy, am I right? These bundles and the coupons will only be available until February 16, 11:59 PM EST, so we hope to see you around the shop soon!

14 Candy Hearts are back!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Candy Hearts are back! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Fri Feb 14, 2014 11:36 am; 14th

HAHA. Cygnus thought he could hide all the candy from me! Said it wasn't "good for my heart" and that it was "messing up my brain real bad" on account of me having been unconscious for six hours after eating a whole bucket of these tasty Candy Hearts. Well, joke's on him! He always hides things in the same place -- behind the drapes, like that would be hard for me to find -- and now I've got a whole stash of Candy Hearts ALL FOR MYSELF. Oh um. And for you guys, I guess! I suppose I ought to not eat all of them. I'm pretty sure it would kill me. So, okay, what the heck! Candy Hearts and their amazing prizes for everyone!


The way Candy Hearts work is that you pick a heart, and then you get to pick your prize: you can choose to receive a random valuable item such as Ribbon Candy or Kandi Kitten, or up to 250 million gold! It's an opportunity so sweet it'll probably make your teeth fall out! A few of mine are feeling a little loose, honestly. They're just so deliciously addictive... Anyway, they'll be available until 11:59 PM tonight! You might wanna try and visit before I eat all of 'em. No promises!

Goooood day, Gaians! Have you had your daily dose of cute yet? Besides seeing my lovably smug face, I mean. Well get ready, kids, 'cause I'm about to put a heaping scoop of adorableness on your plates of awesome. I found a brand new item and it's so dang sweet it's about to give me a toothache!

Oh my goodness. It's so cute I can hardly stand it. I can't. Deep breaths, Jet—you're gonna get through this. Phew... OKAY. So, this twee little number is Teddy March, and lemme tell you that it's marching its way straight to my heart! It's going to be hard to part with something so gosh darn cuddly, and it's even harder since I only managed to secure a limited supply of this great item! Plus I gotta keep a couple teddies for myself, you see. I need something to comfort me while I'm in the dentist's chair. Anyway, you can pick up one for yourself here in La Victoire!

And, um—I have to say, I'm pretty proud of myself for this new recolor as well. I think it's something pretty special. Not gonna talk too much, since I'd much rather just show you what it is.

-

I'm gonna call it Rapturous Descent, and I think it's pretty amazing. Y'know, just wanted to do a tribute to, uh... Forbidden love? Not that I care about that sort of thing or anything. 'Cause I don't. ... Jet made me do it. Anyway, it'll be available in La Victoire, along with the original Rapturous Union and a bundle containing both of 'em called Rapturous Couple Bundle.

14 Adamant Vault, Bunnihilation, and HardheartedEdit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement EI Report: Adamant Vault, Bunnihilation, and Hardhearted - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Feb 14, 2014 5:21 pm

Salutations, science fans! Today is February 14th, and you know what that means: a brand new EI Report! ... What? Is something else going on? Honestly I've been so wrapped up in research that I haven't really been paying attention. What's that? Speak up Donny, for crying out loud -- what? It's Valentine's Day? And no one told me?! Oh. Well, now I feel kind of bad that I'm making everyone pull an all-nighter. I mean, not bad enough to cancel it, but you know. A little humbled. Still, scientific progress knows not the meaning of romance! Science is cold, and sterile, and completely and totally awesome. It's my real love, honestly. And hey, we've got something special for you today! Not only are Adamant Vault and Bunnihilation evolving, but we discovered a brand new EI: Hardhearted! Let's take a closer look, shall we?

-


Adamant Vault: There are still more treasures to uncover in the Adamant Vault. You reach a little deeper, discovering two new spectacular pieces of jewelry. Apparently, the actress had collected a few diamond antiques as well: a glittering diamond stomacher and a glowing diamond belt.

Bunnihilation: This bunny cafe is the cutest thing ever! You tie a festive balloon to your wrist as you sit down and wait for a server to take your order. Much to your surprise, an adorable little bunny with a pink apron hops up to your table with a slice of carrot cake. It stares at you with its giant blue eyes practically sparkling as it waits for your approval.

What kind of restaurant allows bunnies to serve food? Still, it does look like a tasty piece of cake... Hesitantly, you take the cake and sample a bite. Delicious! The bunny's nose twitches with glee as it hops off to serve other customers.

Hardhearted: Bored out of your skull, you wander aimlessly around your campus; you've started to feel stagnant and unmotivated, as if you're simply drifting through life with a purpose or reason. Maybe this walk will help clear your head. As you trudge quietly down the path, you notice glint of light reflecting off something from the corner of your eye. Well, at least looking for whatever is causing it could be kind of interesting. After a bit of searching, you find a CD case. Who even listens to CDs anymore? It looks like it's just a normal music CD inside the case...


Fascinating! Who needs candlelit dinners and chocolates when you've got such amazing discoveries to process? Unfortunately that's all the time we have for today, but be sure to visit La Victoire to see more of these glorious items in person! Also, please don't forget to vote in our Weekly EI Poll and let us know what you think! Remember: science is the only love that will never hurt you! Unless you're testing different acids. Goodbye!


As a special bonus to celebrate Bunnihilation's evolution, this little bunny wants to share its carrot cake with you!

-

February's Monthly Collectibles feature an edgy punk fashionista, and a handsome, preppy student—each of them both vying for the other's attention!

Attitude Alleycat: The Attitude Alleycat has never been shy or demure, so why can't she seem to tell the boy she likes how she really feels? Maybe if she changes her look a little he might notice her. Includes her skull shirt, punk-styled hair, piercings, shirt-ripping scissors, and more!

Sweetheart Schoolboy: The Sweetheart Schoolboy never expected to fall for a girl so unlike him, but he can't stop thinking about the amazing punk singer he saw in concert! He might need to try being a little edgier to catch her eye. Includes his school blazer, short permed hair, book bag, hair shaver, and more!

Psst! Guys, it's me, Jet! Yeah, not Cygnus. What, he thinks he's the only one with some artistic talent? Pfft. Frankly, I find that insulting. We all know I'm absolutely stellar at everything I put my mind to. And besides, I'm sick of him getting all the attention for his "artistry" or whatever he wants to call it. Two can play at that game! So I sent him out on a few errands this morning, and I'm gonna take this opportunity to show off my first real attempt at this whole thing! Ohhhh man I'm so excited, I can't even wait any longer. Voila! My masterpiece!

-

Not bad, right? Admit it: it's totally awesome. I know, I know. I wouldn't expect any less from me either. Anyway, this super adorable little number is Operatic Cantata, and I think it's pretty much the best thing ever. Because I made it. Can you tell that I'm proud? 'Cause I totally am. Take THAT, Cygnus! And to kick it up a notch further, I'm also going to be selling the Cantata Musical Bundle with the entire collection of 'em. Anyway, they'll be available until February 16, 11:59 PM EST if you wanna come in and admire my fine, fine handiwork. Oh, and be sure to tell Cygnus how much better I am than he is.

Ugghhh... you guys... I don't feel so good. Maybe eating approximately 11,746 heart shaped candies yesterday wasn't my greatest idea ever. ...Who am I kidding? It was totally worth it! But Cygnus says if I eat any more my tiny cat tummy is gonna explode, and that I gotta get rid of all the remaining Candy Hearts we have lying around. So I guess it's your lucky day! Aside from being the most delicious substance on the planet, Candy Hearts also contain amazing prizes!

I feel like I've made it pretty darn clear that I think Valentine's Day is awesome. Any holiday that involves giving lots of presents and eating tons of candy is all right in my book, you dig? But apparently some people seem to be super into the concept of having an "anti-Valentine" or something like that. Whatever that actually means! Obviously I'm not one of those people—I love to love, baby—but I don't see any reason why we ought to exclude our curmudgeonly compatriots, do you? Especially since Valentine's Day is finally over. So I went out a-huntin' and sure enough, I found an item perfect for those who would rather finish up any V-day celebrating with a little blood and guts. Check it out!

-

The Bloody Cherub looks like he stole your heart—literally! If only he didn't look so dang awesome while doing it. Still, I don't really wanna mess with him. He creeps me out a little. Well, a lot. Since I don't feel super comfortable stocking a bunch of these in La Victoire, we'll only have a limited quantity to put on sale! They'll be available in the shop until February 17, 11:59 PM EST or until they sell out! Why not drop in for a visit and see what we've got in stock?

So, uh -- I found an item that looked like it could use a healthy dash of my favorite shade, and I figured... y'know, why not? So, I set to work. The results? I don't wanna boast too much, but they're pretty amazing. See for yourself if you don't believe me...

-

Purple really does make everything even better. Some people might not agree with that, but whatever. That's what I think. And I believe that Merciful Demoness looks fantastic. I mean, it's not overly purple -- just the right amount to really make you appreciate the shade. Um... I think so, anyway. It's available now in La Victoire if you wanna see it for yourself or whatever. We'll have it in stock until February 17th, 11:59 PM EST. So, uh -- guess I'll see you around?

Y'know, Gaians, I always wonder what would have happened to me had I not entered the illustrious business of shopkeeping. Where would I have ended up? Would I have been a prince, or a pauper? Perhaps... a little of both? Being a prince of thieves does kind of have a ring to it. Robbing from the rich to give to the poor, swinging my scimitar left and right as I go on wild adventures! Admit it: you can totally picture me doing that sort of thing, right? Except with an appropriately kitten-sized sword. I'd be so utterly adorable! And you know I'd make it look good, too! There's a precedent of fashionable thieves that I've got to maintain. Don't believe me? Just see for yourself how awesome these guys look!

Well, after Valentine's Day I thought I'd keep a few and decorate the shop all nice. Y'know, spruce things up a little! But Cygnus won't stop sneezing... and I think he's tryin' ta make a point.

I've drifted around the inky black abyss, but there's just something about gazing up at the moon and stars from an actual planet that makes you feel... Poetic. Or in my case artistic, I guess. Seeing the colors of the night sky really inspired something within me, and I set about to create something great from that. Or, you know -- two things, I guess. Since I made two. But they kind of go together. Anyway, here, you can see for yourself:

A new sparkling gown and fascinator. I think they're pretty neat, right? They're called the Rose of Mare Serenitatis Gown and Rose of Mare Serenitatis Fascinator respectively. Not the most original names, I know, but, whatever. I never claimed to be all that great at those. Uh... They kind of evoke that feeling of seeing stars in the sky, I think.

Hi, everyone! Y'know, having adorable kitten ears is great and all, but sometimes I wish my noggin felt a little more embellished. I've tried various things! Y'know: baseball caps, trucker hats, wiggly green antennae... None of 'em looked all that good, and Cygnus even said the antennae weirded him out a little. I'd given up hope of ever finding some proper headgear when I suddenly had a stroke of brilliance! If I couldn't find something that I liked, why not just make it myself? And so after hours spent napping in the workshop, along with an actual few hours of solid work, I've devised something that I think is absolutely perfect for me! Oh, and for you guys. 'Cause it's not all about me, really. Anyway, see for yourself!

That's right! Super cute new horns are now in La Victoire! We've got the White Horns of the Demon, the Pink Horns of the Demon, and the Red Horns of the Demon as well! Oh, and I even managed to scrounge up a few of the stylin' original Horns of the Demon, too. Now my problem is I have so many options I don't even know which one I want to choose! Thankfully, I've got some time to make up my mind, as these horns will be in the shop until February 19th, 11:59 PM EST. Do I like the pink? Yeaaaah but the white matches my sparkle better...

Y'know, while Cygnus and I weren't really on Gaia when all that crazy Gambino family stuff was going down properly, it doesn't mean we still don't hear rumors about it all the time. People still talk about Johnny Gambino almost incessantly! He sounded like an interesting kind of guy, to say the least. I guess the nice way to put it would be... eccentric? Either way, I enjoyed the gossip for what it was: rumors and nothing more. Until I overheard some Gaian talking about Gambino's buried treasure! Well, y'know -- how could I resist? I handed Cygnus a shovel and set him to work digging holes all over Gambino's estate! People weren't happy, but I found that if I yelled A LOT and waved my arms around it was enough to distract people while Cygnus kept digging. And sure enough, we struck gold! Well, gold and jewels, anyway. Unfortunately they don't do me much good -- I already have enough sparkle, jewelry just distracts from it -- and Cygnus was mostly angry that I made him dig all those holes, sooooo I figured why not put these riches up in La Victore? It's not like Johnny's gonna be using 'em! I mean, look at all the neat stuff we found:

-

Pretty swanky, right? With the Gambino's Prize Jewels you could win up to 250 million gold, or great prizes like an Onyx Golden Princess Tiara or Ruby Spiked Wings! You'll basically be dripping with totally awesome jewels. Oh, and if you really wanna go all out you could even pick up a bundle of seven and see what other amazing treasures you can find!

18 The seal is weakening on February's 2nd Advance Chance!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement The seal is weakening on February's 2nd Advance Chance! - [NPC] Ivan Tue Feb 18, 2014 1:50 pm

Do you hear that? Please tell me I'm not the only one who does. I seem to be hearing some sort of amazing power ballad coming from our Advance Chance! It's most unusual. I mean, it's quite good! But I can only faintly make it out, and I'm a little worried that it might be a sign of my impending insanity. Oh, what would Ilan McGladstone do if he were in my shoes?! Probably something really heroic, involving rescuing beautiful women and punching bad guys in the face. Alas, I'm not sure I have the ability to do either of those. Well, at least there's a silver lining to all this. I might be going crazy but I am definitely not imagining the fact that February's Advance Chance II's seal has significantly weakened!

What will the next CI be? Nobody is quite sure, but you’ll get the first crack at it with the February Advance Chance II. On the day of the next CI release, you’ll be able to open your bundle and start reaping the rewards of your CIs hours before they’re released to the general public, so you can start listing items on the Marketplace when hardly anyone has their hands on them yet.


How very exciting! You know, perhaps with this music playing in the background, I ought to turn my writing talents towards penning lyrics as opposed to novels? Hmm. That might not be the worst idea... Anyway! February's second Advance Chance will still be in La Victoire for a little bit longer if you'd like to grab a few! I'm off to go dig up my ukelele.

19 Help Orpheus save Eurydice in Underworld Descent!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Help Orpheus save Eurydice in Underworld Descent! - [NPC] Ivan Wed Feb 19, 2014 12:09 pm

I've done it, Gaians! I've written an amazing song about this month's Chance Item that is sure to make my novel look like a children's book! Just let me get the old ukelele here tuned up... Ahem!

I sing you a story, so listen thee well
Of beautiful Eurydice, for whom Orpheus fell
They adored one another, as couples often do
There was absolutely no question that their love was true
But Hades, our villain, was a most wicked man
And seeing fair Eurydice he concocted a plan
He kidnapped our girl and brought her to his lair
For Underworld gangsters never play fair
So it's up to Orpheus to make Hades repent
Can he truly save Eurydice in his Underworld Descent?

-

Whew! I'm well on my way to actual rockstardom, don't you think? Anyway, I hope you'll all pick up an Underworld Descent to help out poor Orpheus! Love is truly a tragedy of Grecian proportions. If you're feeling particularly adventurous you could even try out a bundle of nine! Don't forget that you could win a Cash Shop favorite, a valuable rare item, or a totally rockin' new exclusive. Will love triumph over evil? Is there hope for Orpheus and Eurydice? Will I ever finish my amazing ballad? There's only one way to find out!

Help Love Conquer All!

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Adorable Cherubim Wings galore in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Wed Feb 19, 2014 12:11 pm

Y'know, flight is never really an issue to us adorable star kittens. I guess since we're from space and all that we don't really have to worry about gravity bringing us down all that much! I can totally float, I just choose not to. Why? Because it means I get to bother Cygnus to bring down stuff from the high shelves. And what's the point of living if you're not going to spend it annoying your best friend? Anyway, even though I can fly without any kind of assistance, I know that most people aren't able to achieve such incredible greatness. So I figured I oughta put up a bunch of wings in La Victoire to make things easier for everyone!

-

They're kinda small, I know, but they might be able to get you a few inches off the floor. And believe me, that's a great start! You don't wanna be soaring around the skies without having practiced it a little closer to ground, believe me. Anyway, these feathery little guys are called Cherubim's Lilac Wings, Cherubim's Cream Wings, and Cherubim's Navy Wings! Aren't they just precious? We're also selling Gabriel's Wings, Uriel's Wings, and the original Cherubim Wings as well! Oh! And we've also got an adorable bundle with all the wings listed above called the Fluffy Wings Bundle! Pretty apt description, don't you think? They'll be in La Victoire until February 21, 11:59 PM EST so be sure to drop by before these amazing wings flutter off!

Cygnus: Um, hi. So, I'm aware that I tend to recolor a lot of... cute, or pretty stuff. I guess you could say it's my preference. Obviously I don't wear those things, but they're... y'know, fun to make. But sometimes I do get inspired to tackle something a little more masculine. So, I... well, did. It took a little while to get the colors right, but I'm pretty pleased with how this next recolor came out. I've got a picture, if you wanna take a look.

-

It's called the Blade of the Forenoon Sky, which I guess is kind of a mouthful. And it also makes me kinda of, uh... Hungry. Anyway, it's available now in La Victoire along with Blade of the Night Sky, Blade of the Dawn Sky, and Blade of the Midnight Sky. There's also a bundle called Blades of the Sky if you're interested in picking up the entire collection. They'll be in the shop until February 21, 11:59 PM EST, so I guess drop by and try something on? If you want. I'm gonna go find a candy bar.

Monarch Maiden! YAY! It's finally here! Good, because I love catching me a butterfly or two, lemme tell you. Time to go release these outside so I can have fun chasing them around... In the meantime, Cygnus will be here watching the shop! So if you have any questions about this super cute outfit or wanna try it on, he's your big purple grumpy guy!

Cygnus: Uh—hi, everyone. Still trying to not do "cute" things. Y'know. Change it up a little. So I did a little searching and I, um... Well I found something I thought looked pretty neat, and kinda masculine. After a little tinkering with the colors and all that, I think I came up with something that looks kind of awesome. It took a while but, y'know, I think it was pretty much worth it. Anyway, I'm tired of talking. Just take a look at it for yourself.

-

I like him. He looks kinda creepy. This is The Scouring Hatter and, y'know... I'm actually kind of digging not doing pretty stuff. It's good to change it up once in a while, or something like that. Anyway, it'll be in La Victoire until February 22, 11:59 PM EST, if you wanna come by and check it out. We've also got a bundle featuring the entire Hatter collection called It's a Mad Mad Bundle. Heh. See you around, or whatever.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Cash Shop Update: Dragonslayer Quest Bundle! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Thu Feb 20, 2014 1:19 pm

Does anyone else feel like their life simply isn't epic enough? As much as I love what I do, I sometimes feel like I'm just missing something. I want some danger! Adventure! Drama! Y'know—anything beyond the same day in, day out. Well, even though I can't seem to find anything all that exciting, Cygnus did suggest an alternative. He told me that Ivan likes to play something called "Gauntlets and Goblins"—it sounded pretty nerdy to me, but I was so bored I agreed to check it out. After Ivan had finished explaining what felt like five thousand hours worth of rules, we actually began to play and... Well. It was a ton of fun! He played this sweet little sorceress gal and I was this rookie adventurer, lookin' to make my name as a hero, and we went on this totally epic quest and it was just a blast! That dude Ivan is all right, y'know? Anyway eventually we had to stop—Ivan said something about having to practice his ukelele—but I enjoyed our story so much that I set about making a bundle of it. And, well... Voila! The totally kick butt Dragonslayer Quest Bundle!

-

Spellbound Enchantress: This cute little mage has a courageous heart and a way with magic, even if it sometimes fizzles out on her. All she wants is to rid the world of evil dragons—she's just not sure if she can handle a quest of this magnitude alone. Includes her mage hat, tall boots, robe, structured cape, white hair, and heterochromic eyes.

The Adventurer's Legend: This young warrior was just hanging out in a tavern, unsure that he could ever truly accomplish something heroic, when a desperate enchantress approached him for help. Now he has a quest and a purpose, and is determined to slay that wicked dragon! Includes his shirt, belted pants, blue boots, messy black hair, adventuring bag, and quest scroll.

Osseus Drakon of the Valley: This fearsome dragon may not be the largest in the land, but he is almost as fierce as he is notorious. Includes several epic poses and your own pair of wings.

Available exclusively in the Dragonslayer Quest Bundle is the Dancing Wench Tavern! This cozy tavern is the place where it all began; our heroic adventurers met in this very bar! Includes all one needs in such a tavern, although you'll have to supply your own grog.


Totally awesome, right? And now you can use it to have your own great adventures! I guess I oughta thank Ivan for helping inspire this, so thanks Ivan! You're a huge loser but I like you anyway! I guess I have a soft spot for those types, COUGHcygnusCOUGH. Here's hoping this great bundle inspires you to set off on an exciting quest!

Cygnus: All right, well. You got me. I tried some guyish stuff and I definitely had fun with it, but I could only stay away from cute stuff for so long. Sue me, I guess. Or, y'know. Don't. Whatever. Either way, I had an itch to color something pretty and I uh... Well, I scratched it. Twice. Came up with two super nice new recolors that I think you guys are gonna like, even if dresses aren't your thing. I mean, I don't wear 'em and I still like these items. So, um... Here they are:

-

I kinda had some fun naming these. They're called Inconsisten Sea and Vagran Sea. Heh. Jet told me they were "super ridiculous" but whatever, I'm still mad at him for saying he was better at this artist thing than I am. Anyway, they're on sale now in La Victoire along with Whim Sea, Wood Sea, and Wisteria Sea. There's even a collection of all of 'em called the On a Whim Bundle if you want the whole set. They'll all be in the shop until February 23, 11:59 PM EST so drop by, if you want.

Y'know, sometimes I get to thinkin' about stuff. Life, the universe, Dancing with the Kitten Stars—you know, the usual! I'm pretty deep like that. But sometimes I wonder what my life would be like without my old buddy Cygnus. I mean, sure: he's cranky, obstinate, quiet, and more than a little weird. But he's also my best friend! And, as much as it pains me to admit it, I definitely don't think I could run La Victoire without his help. I mean, who else would do the heavy lifting and keep track of the inventory? Me? That ain't kitten star work, let me tell you. Anyway, I guess I'm just pretty lucky that I've got myself a sidekick. I mean, even if he claims he isn't one, it's totally obvious who the one in charge here is. (It's me. I am the one in charge.) But then I started to wonder... What if some people out there don't have a Cygnus? Y'know, a big lug to order around and boss about and sometimes hug, no matter how much he or she complains? That kinda bums me out. So I figured, why not sell a few bundles with tons of great friends in them? And since all my ideas are super brilliant, that is EXACTLY what I did! See for yourself!

-

It's a friendly free for all! We've got the Sugar & Spice Companion Bundle for anyone lookin' for a little romance, the Creepy Companion Bundle filled with buddies who you maybe don't want to hang out with a ton, and the Animal Companion Bundle so chock full of adorable companions that I can barely stand it! We've also got the Companion Surprise, which contains any of the bundles listed above or maybe even the rare Super Companion Bundle, with tons of valuable friends that promise to keep you company! They'll all be in La Victoire until February 22, 11:59 PM EST so why not drop on by and see if you can find a new friend or two? I'll just be over here, forcing Cygnus to give me a high five to celebrate how awesome we both are. See you around!

Hey, Gaians! Now, I'm sure you all remember our super adorable item Teddy March, right? I mean, how could you forget it? It was so dang sweet it nearly gave me a toothache. But y'know, it got me thinking—what could possibly be cuter than teddy bears? Well, it didn't take me long to have another of my patented flashes of brilliance. Why, I'm cuter than a bear, certainly. I mean, just look at me! And since I'm so gosh darn lovable, it stands to reason that kitties in general would be even cuter than teddies. My logic is airtight, friends. So I set about making a few tweaks here and there, adding on heaping piles of adorableness, and VOILA! I've created what is quite possibly the most CATastrophically darling item in the history of the entire known universe. BEHOLD MY BEAUTIFUL CREATION:

-

Kitty March, ladies and gents, is clearly where it's at. Teddies? Pfft. They don't even hold a candle to how amazing this item obviously is. My supplies were kinda low, though, so I was only able to make a limited supply of them! They'll be in the shop until February 22, 11:59 PM EST or until they sell out! Man, I now firmly believe that every item could be improved by making it about kittens. I have yet to be proven wrong, just saying. Why not stop by La Victoire and see the proof for yourself?

The hunt was on, friends. There I was in the middle of a crowded market, foraging for an item set that would be perfect for La Victoire, going through piles and piles of items! There's a lot of riffraff to sort through, in case you were wondering. And the market can be kind of a scary place to be! Especially when you're a little tinier than most, and there are lots of stompy boots around, and no matter how hard you sparkle no one seems to notice you and they step on your tail and UGH. The nerve of some people. Anyway, even though it's kind of dangerous, nothing is gonna stop me from supplying La Victoire with the best items out there. And y'know what? That trip was totally worth it. Just take a look at what I found!

-

It almost makes having my tail stepped on worthwhile! This is the charming Copper Snippet, and it's available now in La Victoire. Unfortunately the vendor I picked it up from didn't have a lot in stock, so we've only got a limited supply to sell! It'll be available until February 22, 11:59 PM EST or until we sell out. Now, if you'll excuse me, I gotta bandage up my poor, beautiful tail... I'll still be around in the shop if you need help with anything, though!

Anyway, if you'd like to win tons of gold, why not check out Flynn's Booty and Flynn's Chest in La Victoire?

Hi, everyone! I finally managed to get some time off of work, so I figure what better way to spend it than playing a few card games with my favorite people in all of Gaia? No, no, I'm not talking about my Edmund body pillows. At least not this time, anyway. I'm talking about you guys! Everyone at Gold Mountain says I ought to be a little more social, so would you guys mind indulging me in a few hands of Pick a Card and Let it Ride? I'd super appreciate it, and they're really easy to play! But first lemme give you a little sample of the great prizes you could win...


Need the rules explained to you? Sure! With Pick A Card all you have to do is choose the card that reflects how adventurous you're feeling and you could win tons of gold or a valuable item. Just remember that the bigger rewards come with bigger risks! Let It Ride not only gives you the chance to nab some great, valuable items, but you could win anywhere from two million to one billion gold! If you score gold with your Let It Ride card, you'll have the option to LET IT RIDE! If you're successful, you'll win double the amount of gold you originally scored! If you aren't successful, you'll walk away with half the original amount you won. As they say, no loss means no gain! Wait... I don't think anyone says that. Actually that doesn't really make a lot of sense. Anyway, it doesn't really matter! I've got a few days off, so I'll be hanging around until February 22nd, 11:59 PM EST if you wanna play! Hope to see you real soon, okay?

21 EI Report: Adamant Vault and HardheartedEdit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement EI Report: Adamant Vault and Hardhearted - [NPC] Dr. Singh Fri Feb 21, 2014 4:55 pm

It's Friday at long last, my scientific sweets! We've been having a wonderfully productive week at the labs thanks to my new, patent pending, motivating methods! I've pioneered a few different ways to get my lab assistants and interns to really give everything their all, although the most effective method so far seems to be playing duckstep music very loudly over the speakers. Oh, they might complain about all the quacking and "wubwubs" but they sure do get their work done fast! Mostly because they want to get home and escape the racket. Still, it's effective and efficient, and any scientist worth his basalt would appreciate both those things! And with such amazing productivity comes equally astounding evolutions. Both Adamant Vault and Hardhearted evolved today, so let's take a look!

-

Adamant Vault: Already practically dripping with diamonds, you pull out three more gorgeous pieces. The famous starlet this jewelry once belonged to would no doubt have to attend a number of movie premieres and award shows; that must have been her clever excuse to add more and more diamonds to her collection. Studying the jewelry you've just discovered, you find that you now possess a scintillating diamond bertha, a pair of brilliant diamond shoe clips, and a huge flashing diamond gem.

Hardhearted: After finishing your daily boring routine at home, you plop into bed and decide to pop in the strange CD you found earlier in the day. Settling back with your headphones on, you tentatively press the "play" button on your CD player. At first the hard beats and aggressive vocals were kind of intimidating -- you nearly turned the album off after only a few seconds -- but after a while it started to grow on you. After listening to a few tracks, you became completely hooked.


Fantastic! Maybe I ought to try playing Hardhearted over the loudspeaker instead of duckstep and see if that encourages my employees to work even harder? Hmm -- I smell a future experiment! Unfortunately that's all the time we have for this week, but be sure to tune in next Friday for your Evolving Item Report! Don't forget to vote in our Weekly EI Poll, and remember that you can see all these items and more in La Victoire! See you all next week!

Okay, serious question for you guys. When did my shop become a second home for wayward cats?! Just when I think I'm done finding people to adopt them, a whole new crew shows up on my doorstep! And I can't just turn them away, y'know? They're cats! My brethren! I mean, sure, I come from the cold, dark reaches of outer space, but I'm still an adorable kitten at heart. How could I ever turn away a needy kitty? Besides, Cygnus always seems more than happy to take care of 'em all. Particularly since it gives him an excuse to say things like "Aren't you guys so much cuter than Jet?" and "Jet, why can't you be as nice as these cats are?" Ugh. He's awful smug for such a quiet guy. Anyway, I've got a whole new passel of feline friends for you, so please take a look!

-

These cute little guys simply couldn't bear the idea of being separated, so they're being sold together in the Bundle of Fur! It might not come with a lint roller, but it does come with tons of kittens looking for a good home. Do you think you could help me out a little? They're eating all my cat treats! This adoption drive will only last until February 23, 11:59 PM EST so drop by soon if you'd like an armful or two of sweet kitties.

They're fun, they're engaging, all the crazy plots and super complicated raid encounters... Kinda wanna play some right now, actually. But, y'know, first things first. Since I enjoy the games so much, I kind of wanted to do something for them. Y'know—a tribute or something, I guess. So I decided to take my favorite character from the game and give it my own kinda spin. Came out lookin' pretty good, if you ask me. Take a look:

Admit it. He's kind of... boss. Heh. Get it? 'Cause he's a raid boss. Man, I gotta stop spending so much time with Jet, he's clearly starting to rub off on me in the worst kind of way.

You'll get a great reward out of it, I promise! Maybe even something like these fancy prizes:


The way Candy Hearts work is that you pick a heart, and then you get to pick your prize: you can choose to receive a random valuable item such as Ribbon Candy or Kandi Kitten, or up to 250 million gold! Simple AND delicious -- just the way I like it! They'll be available until February 22nd, 11:59 PM EST. Why not chow down a little and help a kitten out?

Vigilant Arc looks like she could probably beat you up. And look good doing it, too. I respect that. It's now available in La Victoire, where it'll be on the shelves until February 24, 11:59 PM EST. We've also got the Arc Covenant Bundle if you're looking for the entire collection, including a totally awesome doll/action figure. It's a collector's item—trust me, I would know. Anyway.

23 Limited Quantity Item: Whale Tale in La Victoire!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Limited Quantity Item: Whale Tale in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Sun Feb 23, 2014 2:50 am

So, I figure it kind of goes without saying that me and water don't exactly mix. It's not just a "oh, cats don't like water" kind of thing either! I'm a little more, um—full of mass, I guess, than most people assume given my adorably diminutive stature. Comes with the whole being from space territory. I sink like a rock being drawn into a super massive black hole in the center of a dying galaxy. But that doesn't stop me from appreciating the creatures of the deep! I know I talk a lot about the virtues of cats, and how we're obviously the most awesome animals ever (which we are), and how all other animals might as well stop trying to be as cute as us, buuuttt... Well, I found these adorable little guys in the marketplace, just looking for a good home, and I just couldn't say no! I mean, could you possibly turn these lovable new friends down? Look at them! Look at their faces!

-

THEY'RE SO CUTE. He's got a festive little top hat, and she's got that sweet little bow, and... Darnit! They're totally giving me a run for my money. Whale Tale is making me question my own superiority. It's mildly uncomfortable. At least I can comfort myself by HUGGING THEM. You have to hug them, by the way. They're so gosh darn huggable I mean look at theeeem. We managed to secure a nice supply of them, and they'll be in the shop until February 26, 11:59 PM EST or until we run out of them. Why not drop by La Victoire and let them entertain you with their cuteness?

Now, I'm pretty sure everyone knows that I enjoy me a good meal or two. What's not to love? Gourmet cuisine is clearly where it's at! Unfortunately my little bitty arms make it kind of hard to use the stove, and Cygnus outright refuses to do anything except nuke the occasional frozen dinner in the microwave, so we're pretty much starved for some proper nutrition around these parts. That doesn't stop me from dreaming, though! I can spend all afternoon picturing mountains of sugar-frosted pastries oozing with chocolatey goodness, or savory roasts dancing a (kind of a little strange, admittedly) can-can across a table loaded with bittersweet beverages of every shape and size! Sigh. A kitten can only dream, alas. But my rumbly tummy did give me a good idea for some tasty bundles, annnnd—voila! An absolute feast!

-

What are all these delicious treats, you might be wondering? Allow me to fill you in on all the details! We've got the Sweet Food Bundle loaded with scrumptious dessert-inspired fashions, the Savory Food Bundle filled with items sure to make your mouth absolutely water, and the Bitter Food Bundle that is anything but tasteless! We've also got the Yummy Food Surprise, which can give you any of the bundles listed above or maybe even the fabulous Super Food Bundle stuffed with rare delicacies! They'll all be in La Victoire until February 25, 11:59 PM EST, so why not drop by La Victoire and drool over them with me? Bonus points if you bring snacks!

Aha! Betcha all thought I was gonna concede and let Cygnus do all the coloring, didn't you? HA! Fooled you all. If that stammering philistine had half the talent I clearly possess, he wouldn't be so dang insecure about everything! Want proof of my obvious superiority? Strap yourself in, folks, 'cause it's gonna be a real doozy. I've concocted a great new recolor that's sure to make Cygnus blush a deep purple—a deep purple of shame. Behold, my latest masterpiece!

My reign of artistic superiority continues, my fashionable friends! I'm just laying down one masterpiece one after the other. Boom, boom. My talent is downright explosive! Also, this all probably sounds a bit like nonsensical mumbo jumbo. Well it kind of is! But an artist has to be confident, right? Showing off your work to the entire world is kind of a scary prospect, and so I'm aimin' to fake it until I make it! And lemme tell ya, I think this new item here is gonna make a real splash in the art scene. I mean, what could possibly be better than floating pink cuteness? Well, me. But besides the obvious. I mean, just look at how awesome this is!

The Withering Revenant is so gosh darn pink that I just wanna pinch its cheeks or something. On a scale of one to ten, it's a solid "oh my god so adorable I looovee it" -- according to Rina, anyway.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Looking to win some great prizes? Then visit Carnival Day! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Mon Feb 24, 2014 1:24 pm


You know one thing that everyone loves? A carnival! There's all the great fried food, the fun rides, the crazy shows... It's all so whimsical! But my favorite part -- besides stuffing my face full of funnel cake -- has to be the awesome games on the fairway. So what if I'm really terrible at them? I can still enjoy it, right? I just don't like to play against Cygnus, because he's surprisingly good at the ring toss. Anyway, the great thing about carnival games is that they're not only super fun to play, but they always have amazing prizes that you could win! And I love me some prizes, guys. Almost as much as I love the carnival itself! So I figured why not start the week off with something a little... different? That's right! We're gonna be having a little mini carnival of our own right here in La Victoire, complete with games that could win you prizes or gold! It's officially Carnival Day, everyone!


No tickets required to attend! All you gotta do is drop by La Victoire and pick up a Carnival Day. That gives you the chance to play one of our exciting games: Knock 'Em, Ring Toss, and Whack 'Em! Each one gives you the opportunity to score some fabulous prizes; you could win up to 500 million gold, or maybe even a valuable item like Volant Reverie 2nd Gen. or Monsieur Loyal's Reprise! The carnival is definitely back, baby. I gotta find myself a kicky little hat to go with my new role as a carnival barker (or I guess carnival mewler, in my case) but feel free to drop by and try our games! The carnival packs up at February 25th, 11:59 PM EST, so we hope to see you before then!

Everyone Loves Carnival Day!

Step in time and you won't fall behind, that's what I've always said! But people always tell me that I like to march to the beat of my own drum and that I'm as crazy as a March Hare, and—Okay, okay, I admit it: I'm out of punny sentences involving the word "march". But honestly, this amazing item is so fabulous that it really needs no introduction! Ladies and gents, please allow me to present the adorable Pandy March!

It's super cute and chic to boot! I mean, obviously I don't think it's as adorable as my own little Kitty March, but that little blushing panda is just darling!

You could also win great items such as Mini Nitemare Wings, Onei the Dark Unicorn, Princess of the Universe, or even a Panda Hat -- all at the toss of a coin. Easy way to win big. Boom. Done.

Look, I'm pretty obvious about how I feel about us cats, but let me say it again for those of you who might not have been paying attention: we're awesome. Super, completely, totally and absolutely amazingly awesome. Why? Lots of reasons! Our adorable little whiskers, paws, and noses. Our fuzzy ears and wiggly tails! Our beautiful singing voices! Wait a minute... Ahem! MimimimiMEEOOOOOWWW. See? Like an angel whispering into your soul. Oh, hang on. Cygnus just left the room mumbling that he "doesn't get paid enough to listen to this" I think. Hah! Joke's on him, he doesn't get paid at all! Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that cats are the best. And fashion based on cats? Also the best. Just look at this adorable item and tell me it's not the greatest thing since, well... Me!

Y'know, where there are fields upon fields of delicious cat treats, and where the rivers are made of delicious whole fat milk! Tuna flowers burst up from the ground like edible roses, and the air always smells faintly of cat nip. Siiiggh. So amazing, am I right? Unfortunately, I'm pretty much stuck here in reality.

Look, guys, I'm gonna tell you a little bit of a secret about myself... But you gotta swear that you'll keep it quiet, okay? Promise? Good. So, the truth about me is that I talk a big game, but sometimes when it gets right down to it I'm kind of a scaredy cat. I especially can't stand horror movies! Ghosts and ghoulies just really don't do it for me, I'm afraid. Literally! But the problem is Cygnus lives for horror films. He watches them all the time! Sometimes I think he does it just to upset me. But to save face, I gotta sit there and watch them with him and just... Ugh! Ugh! They make my fur stand on end, everyone. I hate it! But y'know, the other night we were watching this movie about a guy who lives in an asylum, and he's haunted by this creepy nurse ghost, and—well, y'know, the parts I could watch through my paws were pretty interesting! So I decided to take some of that inspiration and run with it, and now I've crafted a creepy item that promises to make your skin crawl! Check it out—if you DARE:

Oooh! Spooky, right? Okay, maybe not. But you gotta admit it looks great! This is the Mark of the Unsound and it's available now in La Victoire. I could only make a couple of them before I got too wigged out, though, so we've only got a limited supply in stock! It'll be on the shelves until February 27, 11:59 PM EST or until it all sells out!

AND THEN THEY WILL CHOOSE ME AS THEIR LEADER AND I WILL RULE THEM ALL. AHAHAHAH—I mean. Um. Ahem. Annyyyywaaayy, I'm excited to greet all these new critters.

Oh boy, Gaians. Are you guys sitting down for this? 'Cause you might wanna be. Something crazy is going on and I'm not even entirely sure how to explain it! I guess I oughta just start from the beginning... For a while now I've run a little blog, posting about my life on Gaia and what it's like to be a talking cat in what is, essentially, a human's world! Sometimes it's a little tough, but I couldn't picture anywhere else being as amazing a place as Gaia is—particularly for us talking animals! Of course, I just wrote the blog for fun. I didn't think anyone ever actually read it! Little did I know that, apparently, I had a larger audience than I thought. My latest post on how wonderful Gaia is got a lot of attention from other talking animals, and now they've all flooded my store demanding to be a Gaian just like I am! It's crazy, guys! But I can't turn them away. I mean, Gaia really is the best place to be if you're a talking kitty. Or a talking bear. Or a talking wolf. But I'm getting ahead of myself!

-

Basically, we've got a bunch of adorable new animals running around Gaia who want to dress up and look fabulous, just like everyone else. And who am I to say no?! As long as they don't make me wear any pants, I'm totally okay with all these new friends. I'm going to do everything I can to make them feel as welcome as possible! And so I've started a little "animal's only" section of Barton Boutique, filled with plenty of great basics to help get our new pals situated! I even got a couple of them to model my newly minted fashions. Take a look!

-

This is just a small sample of what you can pick up from my store, Barton Boutique. I've also talked to Vanessa and she agreed to put out some stylish products for the critters in Salon Durem as well! Oh, and also Natasha from Skin Tyte promised to help out a little too. Rina and Agatha also put out a few things in Buttercup Cafe and Barton Jewelers as well!

Now, I'm sure you're all wondering how you can help our new friends acclimate. Because remember: these guys aren't pets, they're Gaians just like you and me! And so I've devised a buddy system that's easy as can be! Simply visit your avatar dress up to pick out your new pal with the handy dandy button above your avatar! You can choose from a wonderful wolf, cute cat, or a beautiful bear! Once you've made your selection, you're free to dress them up as you see fit! They'll even appear in forums and towns and everything! After all, they want to be Gaians just like the rest of us.

So, Gaians. Can you bearly contain your joy over this amazing new feature? Does it make you want to howl with excitement? Are you mewing for more? Well, don't worry! I'm here to make sure these guys get the full Gaian experience, and so you can be sure that there will be tons of new content coming out for our new fuzzy friends shortly! For now, let's help them all get situated and give them all a big, friendly welcome! It's time to unleash all our inner animals! Rawwwwrrr.

Does anyone else ever wonder what life would be like if all the color suddenly drained out of the universe? Like, if everything just became black, white, and a little grayscale? Would it be kinda like an old-timey film, you think? I bet people would revert to wearing awesome fedoras and coats, with the ladies swoonin' all over the place in their flouncy skirts. Or, you know, maybe it would be nothing like that. More importantly: if the world was nothing but black and white, would I still sparkle as amazingly as I do now? Y'know, these are deep questions, and I couldn't even begin to think up answers for them. But I can explore that strange black and white universe a little with some recolors! Like this one I've just come up with -- take a look!

The answer is yes to all of the above questions, in case you were wondering. But there is one thing I gotta give 'em props for: their fashion. These guys sure know how to dress up! Whether it's a fancy hairstyle, gorgeous makeup, or just a pair of sensible trousers, a true Gaian original always manages to make it work. Which is why I've set about creating bundles centered on specific members of Gaia's illustrious cast! Here, just take a peek at some of the stuff I've put together:

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Candy Hearts & Roses and Romance back in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Wed Feb 26, 2014 7:04 pm

Aww, man. Can you believe February is already almost over? What jerk decided to make this month so much shorter than all the other ones? I like February! What other months have holidays that you celebrate with copious amounts of candy? ... Besides October. Oh, and I guess whichever month Easter happens to fall in. Also, I think a lot of people eat candy on Christmas? Okay, maybe that isn't the best argument for adding more days to February. But it doesn't matter! I really enjoyed this past month, and I'm gonna be sad to see it go. If nothing else, February being a celebration of romance and love really sets it apart from the rest of this year! So, to end the month with a real bang, we're bringing back Candy Hearts and Roses and Romance a final time for the year! Oh, and just in case you need a little refresher on all the great items you could score, here's a handy image!


With Roses and Romance, you could win up to 250 million gold or great prizes, like Anurla's Amulet or even Rosamund's Rage! And with Candy Hearts, you get to pick a heart, and then you get to pick your prize: you can choose to receive a random valuable item such as Ribbon Candy or Kandi Kitten, or up to 250 million gold! Can you guys feel the love? Especially with these great new bundles containing 24 Roses and Romances or 24 Candy Hearts, each of 'em being sold for a 50% discount! Can life get any sweeter? Man, I doubt it. The sale ends when the month does, so at February 28th, 11:59 PM EST. Let's finish February with a real lovefest, everyone!

"Wind! Water! Fire! Earth! The great and mighty elements that make up the whole of Gaia!" Remember that, guys? It's a line from that incredible TV show from about twenty years ago, Captain Gaia. Did any of you ever watch it? It featured a bunch of plucky teenagers (and their talking parrot friend Jinxie) with candy bracelets that they could use to summon the amazing Captain Gaia, who would then help fight trolls polluting our lovely towns and shops! It was supposed to have some sort of "message" or something but I don't know, I mostly watched it to see Captain Gaia kick butt. I mean, he wielded the power of the elements! How cool is that? Man, I love that show. I was watching a rerun of it the other day and, y'know, it gave me some real inspiration! After a little digging through my inventory, I managed to put together some great bundles patterned after the GREAT AND MIGHTY ELEMENTS, as Captain Gaia liked to call them. Check it out!

-

We've got the Earth Elemental Bundle for all you nature lovers out there, the Wind Elemental Bundle for anyone who likes to stay light on their feet, the Fire Elemental Bundle with some really hot fashions, and the Water Elemental Bundle filled with flowing grace and beauty!

This sale ends March 1, 11:59 PM EST so drop by if you wanna check out all these great deals! Oh man, I'm so excited I might start singing the theme song to Captain Gaia... I better end this announcement before that happens. See ya soon, Gaians!

Cygnus: All right. Well, for anyone who might not know, I like the color purple... A lot. Y'know, all shades of it. It just makes everything look better. So, um. I guess it shouldn't be a surprise that I like to use my favorite color on some items to pretty 'em up a little. So I took another one of my favorite items, splashed on a little purple, and -- well, made it look fantastic. Here, see?

-

The magic power of purple, I tell you. It works wonders. Anyway, this is Stellar Wish, lookin' fresh and cute as some newly picked wisteria. It's available now in La Victoire, and it'll be on sale until March 1st, 11:59 PM EST if you're interested on purple-fying yourself. Obviously I don't need any extra color, but I see Gaians with a serious lack of aubergine and it kinda bums me out. All right, anyway. See you around.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Get a head start on March's first CI with Advance Chance! - [NPC] Ivan Mon Feb 24, 2014 1:23 pm

Does anyone else smell that? There's a distinctly pungent aroma in the air, wouldn't you say? I can't quite tell what it is, but it does smell rather delicious. Is someone cooking? Strange, there are no restaurants anywhere near here. My goodness, something about this smell is so enticingly familiar, though! It really takes me back. Did you know that I once enjoyed cooking? It's true. Before I entered my current line of work, I'd spend hours upon hours slaving over a hot stove, crafting an expert dish that would be sure to impress my parents and friends. My specialty? Grilled cheese sandwiched between two patties made of raw ramen noodles! It's... it's a lot better than it sounds, believe me. Ah, yes. I truly used to dream big, my friends. Maybe I ought to head on down to my kitchen and see if I still have the magic within to create culinary delights. TO MY RECIPE BOOK!

Oh, but before I forget! Did you notice that we have next month's Advance Chance already? How very exciting!

What will the next CI be? Nobody is quite sure, but you’ll get the first crack at it with the March Advance Chance. On the day of the next CI release, you’ll be able to open your bundle and start reaping the rewards of your CIs hours before they’re released to the general public, so you can start listing items on the Marketplace when hardly anyone has their hands on them yet.


My goodness, just thinking about what could possibly be inside really whets my appetite! March's Advance Chance is available now in La Victoire, if you'd like to pick up a few for yourself! Now, does anyone know where I can purchase powdered sea cucumber?

So, let's talk about Artemis! No, not the Greek goddess of hunting and all that—she's been talked about enough, trust me. We don't need to go over her. No, I'm talkin' about everyone's favorite adorable little spirit, our Artemis! She's a plucky little gal, ain't she? Doesn't even let the whole "being undead" thing stop her from achieving her dreams. And what were those dreams? Why, to be closer to space, of course! Well, technically the sky and the moon. But I mean, we all know the real reasons behind that, right? She wanted to be like us awesome star people! Right? I mean, I assume that has to be the real reason. Why else would she wanna be that high up? Heights are awful! I can deal with them now, but they used to make me get all spacesick. Well, anyway, I'm kind of getting off topic. What I'm trying to say is I like Artemis! And so I took her signature clothes and decided to make some new versions in fashionable colors! Check it out:

Even Zombie Artemis won't hesitate when it comes to her dreams! These lovely new recolors are Mint Artemis and Starless Artemis and they're as cute as buttons, if buttons were actually cute. They're available now in La Victoire, along with Coral Artemis and the original Artemis herself! We've also got the Artemis in the Sky Bundle featuring the entire collection!

I took a little break to have some me time, just like I mentioned last time I visited Gaia, and really did some soul searching. And by "soul searching" I mean I laid by the pool for a while and worked on my tan. Do you know how hard it is to maintain a nice bronzed sheen in space? It's IMPOSSIBLE. Anyway, after all that relaxing I felt so energized and awesome that I immediately went back into space and showed everyone what a ruthless pirate I truly am. The result? Tons of booty! And I'm willing to share you in on a cut of the profits, if you're interested. So Flynn's Booty and Flynn's Chest are both back in La Victoire, and they'll be available until February 28, 11:59 PM EST.

Sweet, delicious, frosted cake. Is there anything better? Yes, but only one thing. MORE CAKE. I've been craving it like crazy but Cygnus is putting me on some kind of diet -- something about how the gravity here on Gaia is different and I'm starting to get paunchy from all the Candy Hearts I ate. As if. Still, thoughts of delicious pastry haunt my every thought. At least one good thing came out of it; I turned that hunger into some inspiration, and voila! Divine, fashionable deliciousness ensued!

Take all the time you need! But let me tell you one thing: as a kitten myself, I am sensitive to your specific animal needs. For example, I know that if there's one thing we critters like, it's lookin' good. I personally spend almost all free time grooming my fabulous coat, because there's nothing I enjoy more than having the sparkliest fur this side of the Milky Way. So I figured, why not put something together that allows all the new animals to win tons of great furs? Brilliant!

Ah, Friday at the end of February. What better day could there be for some scientifical experimentationing? Or for making up new words? There simply couldn't be! We've had a wonderful week here at the Evolving Item Labs, testing out all sorts of wild new theories and collating tons of beautiful, beautiful raw data. I tell you, nothing sets my heart aflutter more than seeing columns upon columns of numbers, just waiting for some good old-fashioned statistical analysis. Of course, my first love is and always will be Evolving Items! And we've got a real magnificent showing for you today. Let's take a closer look at Adamant Vault and Hardhearted and get this report on the road!

-

Adamant Vault: It seems that our leading lady managed to become famous enough that she started to get invited to royal events! The jewels you find in the vault this week are from this era, where having a tiara wasn't just a luxury, but also a necessity. It seems that you've found a luminous tiara, a glamorous overdress, a diamond studded wig, and a blazing diamond halo.

Hardhearted: You find yourself totally addicted to this amazing new sound! It inspires you to try changing up your style and cutting your hair -- you even try out some new piercings that you performed yourself! Ouch... You've made some drastic changes, but life has never felt (or looked) this good!


Spectacular! That Adamant Vault might possibly be the shiniest thing I've ever seen! I'm not really a glamor girl, but all those diamonds... Imagine the x-ray lasers I could build with those babies! Unfortunately that's all we have time for this week, but be sure to tune in to next week's report for brand new updates! Don't forget to vote in our Weekly EI Poll, and remember if you want to see any of these evolutions up close they're available now in La Victoire. 'Til next time, science lovers!

Y'know what, Gaians. Sometimes you just gotta set your hearthgem, buy lots of food and magic potions, repair all your armor, and just go and punch a dragon straight in the teeth. Or, you know -- heal the guy punching the dragon. Or chuck a fireball at it. Or, if you're feeling really brazen, sneak up behind the dragon and steal all its precious loot, and then punch it in the teeth. Guess which one I prefer? NONE. Because I don't play video games -- that's always been Cygnus' thing. But he put together these bundles, so I assume they gotta be pretty awesome. Say what you will about the purple lug, but the guy has got some pretty killer taste. Let's take a look, shall we?

Hmm! Not bad, Cygnus -- not bad at all! No matter what your preference (or class) is, we've got the perfect bundle just for you! The Warrior's Adventure Bundle has everything you need to grind your enemies into a fine paste, the Mage's Adventure Bundle features fashionable garb sure to make you the most popular sorcerer in the village, the Thief's Adventure Bundle is loaded with goodies perfect for sneakin' around and pilferin', and lastly the Healer's Adventure Bundle has some great clothes in it, so you can look fashionable while your entire party blames you for wiping! Haha, I'm just kidding. (But it was probably your fault.)

It's nice being back home, but honestly we're starting to get a little bored of lounging about the house, snacking on Cheesy Space Balls and downing liters of Nebuola soda. So we packed all those things up in a spaceship to take along with us as we journey across the stars! We're refueling on Gaia now, and since we also packed a few Divinity's Reaches for the road, we figured why not offer some for sale? I mean, they've got such great prizes in them. See for yourself!


Divinity's Reach is full of heavenly rewards, from sacks of gold to beautiful, super rare items! You can score up to five million gold, a popular Chance Item, one of a variety of gorgeous backwings, or possibly even a valuable 2003 Monthly Collectible! Such beauty! Such grace! I mean, obviously we're talking about ourselves here, but the same could be said about Divinity's Reach!

Hah! Check this out. I was going through Cygnus' things while he wasn't lookin' -- sometimes he hides the candy from me in his room, so I gotta do a little snooping to find it -- and I found something totally weird. But also kind of awesome? Weird that he has it, I guess, but awesome for you guys. So Cygnus sometimes likes to try and customize his "action figures" as he likes to call them, right? Dude's gotta have hobbies. Turns out, though, that he made a ton of wigs for 'em! Like, nice ones. Ones that I kinda wanna pop on my head and rock. Anyway, it seemed kind of selfish to me for him to keep these all to himself when there are Gaians out there looking for some new fabulous coiffures, so I... Well, you know. I stole 'em. Not all of them! I just doubt he needed this many. I mean, look at how cool they are!

-

Amazing, right? Boy's got some real talent. Now if only he weren't so dang awkward. Anyway! You can win amazing hairs like these in the new Splitting Doll Hairs, available now in La Victoire! Cygnus will be kinda mad when he finds out, but I think when he sees all the Gaians rocking these fashionable looks he'll be totally into it. After he pouts in a corner for a while, presumably. Anyway, I'm not looking to take them out of the shop any time soon, so why not drop by and see which amazing wigs you might win?

  • Icon announceAnnouncement And the winner is... You! Open an envelope and win a prize! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Sun Mar 02, 2014 12:00 am

I guess it shouldn't really come as a surprise that I wanna be a winner. Who doesn't want to be on top? I mean, I'm totally confident in how awesome I am, but it'd be kind of nice if I... I don't know. Won a prize for it or something. The Sparkliest Fur Award? Best Catch Phrases from a Space Kitten Trophy? I mean, are these too much to ask? Ah, well. I guess we can't all have shelves filled with accolades, can we? I gotta find other ways to make myself feel good. And you guys too! 'Cause you know what? You're all awesome. And you deserve to feel awesome! So I've stuffed a bunch of envelopes with awards that I might have made up in a sugar-induced rush, and loaded 'em up with great prizes like these!

-

With the Gaia Awards, you're guaranteed to take home a fabulous prize! It could be up to 250 million gold, or even rare items like Stellar Night or Hero Manner! The best part is you get to pick which one you want: gold or items! See, that just means that my special awards are, like, a bajillion times better than anything else. I'll have the envelopes until March 3rd, 11:59 PM EST if you wanna pick one up and see what you win! As for me, well -- I guess I'll just stay behind the counter and do my thing. Wait a minute, what's this? It's a little homemade certificate. Huh, looks like Cygnus' handwriting. What's it say? ... It looks like I've won the award for "Most Annoying Star Kitten Ever, While Still Remaining Slightly Bearable To Be Around". Oh, Cygnus! You tolerate me! You really tolerate me!

Ah, the life of a city girl! I imagine it must be quite exciting. I mean, I can't say for certain. I'm not a girl in the city, for one thing. But y'know, I read lots of magazines! Well, I look at the pictures, anyway. I find the modern fashions inside to be really inspiring, you know? I can't wear any of it, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy it. So as I was walking through the market, questing for an item that might catch my eye, I spotted a brand new set that I think would appeal to those gals I see in all the magazines! It's fun, flirty, and perfect for spending a fabulous night out on the town! Just take a look for yourself, you'll totally understand:

-

Romantic St. is all decked out for a fun date night, where she's sure to impress with her impeccable style! At least, that's what I'd like to think. Ah, to be her beau... A kitten can dream, friends. It'll be in the shop until March 4, 11:59 PM EST or until it's all sold out! Hope to see you in La Victoire soon!

Look, if there is one thing nobody could ever accuse me of, it's being apathetic. You can call me a lot of things! Amazing, fabulous, gorgeous, awesome -- but never apathetic. I'm an expressive kind of cat! I mean, I'm cool. But I might not keep my cool all the time, if you get me? That being said, I might wanna try being a little more stoic and removed if it means I look as great at this guy does. I mean, just see for yourself!

-

Maaan, he looks so awesome! Fashionably aloof, I suppose. His Apathy is available in La Victoire, along with the Darkness Consumes Him Bundle with the entire collection! It'll be in the shop until March 4th, 11:59 PM EST if you wanna try it on. I bet it ups your cool factor by, like, twenty percent.

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Limited Quantity Item: Pitiful Tearful now in La Victoire! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Fri Feb 28, 2014 6:50 pm

All right, critters! Listen up! I'm gonna give you some advice here. You're new to dealing with humans, and that's okay. They're kind of weird. But I've been around them long enough and I've learned a few tricks. One: do not poke humans in the eyeballs if you can avoid it. Apparently they don't think it's as funny as you do. Two: humans are excellent for getting things down from high places. Utilize this tip whenever possible, as it is one of their main functions. Three: if you are as pathetic and adorably helpless as possible, the humans will fall all over you in an attempt to take care of you. No, seriously! One time I pretended Cygnus stepped on my tail and he felt so bad about it he totally let me take a nap in his lap. And while Cygnus might not be human, the underlying principle is sound. Now, to help you master this art, I've devised a new item that is sure to pull a few heartstrings...

-

BEHOLD. No person could resist such utterly agonizing cuteness! Wearing this around and making sad faces at the humans will totally get you far, believe me. This works like a charm. Just remember: be Pitiful Tearful! I gotta limit the quantities of this available, though, 'cause if every animal used it then it would be less effective... It'll be on sale until March 4, 11:59 PM EST or until it sells out. And stay tuned for more valuable tips!

Maybe puke on some of Cygnus' clothes! Hmm, it's quite tempting. But I guess I oughta channel my mischievous impulses towards something good -- which is exactly what I did! Instead of being bad, I decided to be productive. I sat down and made this awesome recolor, and I figure since it's just ever so slightly evil lookin' it counts as doing a misdeed! A fabulous misdeed, mind you. I mean, look at how amazing this came out:

Phantasm Zivva might look bad, but she can't help it -- she was pixelated that way! It's available now in La Victoire, and will be on the shelves until March 4th, 11:59 PM EST if you wanna try it on and indulge in a little wickedness!

Ah, spring! It's so close I can practically smell it! You know what it smells like? Sunshine, daisies, fresh grass, and adorable woodland critters. Well, okay, maybe not that last part. In fact I bet woodland critters probably don't smell that great. But I'm pretty excited for the season to start changing! I ain't much for the cold -- I had more than enough of that living in the frigid depths of space, thanks very much. Anyway, I just couldn't hold back my excitement anymore! I gotta find ways to celebrate spring's incipient arrival, and so I figured why not throw a fun little picnic? I mean, sure, it's still a little too nippy to have an actual one outside. But how about one here? In La Victoire! With a fun little bundle to really get you into the spring of things? 'Cause I totally did that. Let's take a look at the adorable Endeering Picnic Bundle, everyone!

Deer John: John is gentle young man eager to impress his lovely date as they welcome spring with an outdoor picnic. Includes his hair with antlers, light brown coat, knitted sweater, mid-calf pants, strapped shoes, and a monarch chrysalis necklace.

Y'know, there are plenty of means for divining whether someone loves you or not. Magic 8 Balls. Psychics. Actually asking the object of your affections whether they like you. But who wants to use any of those methods? Those are boring! Nah, I prefer the excitement of pulling petals off a flower and learning my chances for romance that way! Loves me, loves me not, loves me, loves me not -- loves me! Hey, look at that. I do love myself! I knew it. Anyway, I stole a bunch of pretty little daisies from Rina's garden (she has like a gajillion, don't worry, she's not gonna miss these) and I'm offering up their amazing precognitive services to Gaians everywhere! Of course you're not only gonna get an answer to your most burning questions. You'll get some awesome prizes, too! You might even win one of these:

-

With Love Me, Love Me Not you pluck petals until you get your prize! It could be anything from up to one billion gold or a fabulous item, like Summer Groom or Lethe Rose! That way even if you get an answer you didn't want, you at least still get something awesome out of the equation. Why not try one out and see what you might win? These amazing flowers will be in the shop until March 4th, 11:59 PM EST, so drop by before then if you'd like to avail yourself of their fortune telling prowess and prizes!

Cygnus: Hmph. I read a book the other day. It was kind of a weird one. Had pirates with hooks for hands, a kid that apparently liked wearing tights, and a girl who trusted strangers enough to follow a weird boy to a place called Neverland. I mean, nothing against any of those characters, they seemed nice enough. And, uh... I guess technically it was a story intended for children. But I actually kind of liked it? I mean, I can technically fly and I guess I've met some space pirates in my day. So, y'know. Seemed like a pretty plausible story in retrospect. Anyway, it got me a little inspired, and so I set to work makin' a few new recolors I think you might like.

-

Wendy's Care and Wendy's Memories are now available, if you wanna try them on and see how they look on you. Can't really do it myself -- I don't wear dresses. Or tights, just for the record. I do think they'll look nice on a lot of Gaians though. They'll be in the shop until March 5th, 11:59 PM EST, so come visit and let Jet annoy you while you browse.

Oh dear, Gaians. Just when we thought our galactic road trip was really going to get underway! It seems that Rigel decided to drive a little more recklessly than our ship would have liked—as a result, we've accidentally redlined the engine! I'm furious, of course, and I've sent Rigel off to find someone to get it fixed. In the meantime I suppose I'll just lounge around my home away from home, enjoying everything Gaia has to offer. Oh, and indulging in my favorite past time, of course: making Gaians more fabulous! How, you might be wondering? Well, Rigel did leave me with a few Divinity's Reaches before heading off to find a mechanic. And look what beautiful things they have in store!


Divinity's Reach is full of heavenly rewards, from sacks of gold to beautiful, super rare items! You can score up to five million gold, a popular Chance Item, one of a variety of gorgeous backwings, or possibly even a valuable 2003 Monthly Collectible! They're available now in La Victoire and will be in the shop until March 3, 11:59 PM EST—hopefully by then our ship will be up and running. If not, then Rigel is going to be in some serious trouble.

Wow, guys. I just had a very... interesting encounter. So after Rina found out that I had raided her garden -- again, ahem -- she stomped right on over here to give me a piece of her mind. But when I told her that the flowers were being used for things romantical in nature, she changed her tune fast! Started talking about "shipping" and stuff like that? I'm not sure I followed. I mean, what did she want me to ship, and where was I gonna ship it? Is she into yachts? Anyway, she squealed excitedly for a bit and then disappeared, only to return with TONS more flowers. And hey, I wasn't gonna say no! So now we've got a fantastic 24 pack of Love Me, Love Me Not, which gives you ample opportunity to win great prizes like these!


With Love Me, Love Me Not you pluck petals until you get your prize! It could be anything from up to one billion gold or a fabulous item, like Summer Groom or Lethe Rose!

Besides, I've been hard at work in my absence. What, did you think I was just sitting around, twiddling my thumbs and taking the occasional nap? I mean, I might have been.

Everyone in Gold Mountain does it with such flair and panache -- I'm not quite there yet, but I'm getting better. Would you guys mind helping me practice, though? I'll make it worth your while! After all, playing cards with me means you would win fabulous prizes like the ones pictured here:


Need the rules explained to you? Sure! With Pick A Card all you have to do is choose the card that reflects how adventurous you're feeling and you could win tons of gold or a valuable item.

Let It Ride not only gives you the chance to nab some great, valuable items, but you could win anywhere from two million to one billion gold! If you score gold with your Let It Ride card, you'll have the option to LET IT RIDE! If you're successful, you'll win double the amount of gold you originally scored! If you aren't successful, you'll walk away with half the original amount you won. And to make things even better, I've discounted the big bundles of Pick a Card and Let It Ride 50%!

Well, it seems like my recipes are not going over as well as I had hoped. I tried making a tuna melt but not even Mr. Bibbles would touch it. And he loves tuna! But apparently not when it's covered in Limburger cheese and doused with enough hot sauce to potentially cause a fire hazard. I, however, thought it was absolutely delicious—and pungent! But to cook is to share with others, and it appears that no one wants to eat any of my food. Sigh. Well, at least I can take solace in the fact that all the (potentially noxious) fumes emanating from my kitchen seem to have weakened the seal on this month's Advance Chance!

What will the next CI be? Nobody is quite sure, but you’ll get the first crack at it with the March Advance Chance. On the day of the next CI release, you’ll be able to open your bundle and start reaping the rewards of your CIs hours before they’re released to the general public, so you can start listing items on the Marketplace when hardly anyone has their hands on them yet.


Now that the seal is weaker it smells even more delicious! I really do wonder what's inside... Well, they'll be available in La Victoire for a little longer, so feel free to pick a few up!

Ahoy, Gaians! You would not believe the treasure I just managed to score. So there I was, waiting for a nice looking ship to come along, when suddenly I ran into two familiar faces! I won't say who, specifically, but I'll give you a hint: they're twins, and I'm not exactly their biggest fan. Turns out they were on some sort of galactic road trip? I don't really care. The most important thing is their ship was LOADED with precious cargo, and so I took it upon myself to liberate said cargo from their possession. You know. For the good of Gaia and all that. Can't exactly say they were pleased about it, but doesn't matter now! You snooze, you lose.

And if you're snoozin' then you're definitely going to be missing out, because I've loaded up my Plunder with 100 new items up for bid. Rare items, too! We're talking 2003 and 2004 Monthly Collectibles and envelopes, 2003 and 2004 event items—the works, buddy! Panda Hats, miniwings, slippers.

Hey Gaians! Did you know that our new animal pals came with a bunch of new achievements? It's true! You get a new achievement for changing your base to any of the new ones: wolf, cat, or bear! New achievements means new titles, more points -- lots of fun stuff! But did you know that there's another achievement as well? Any user who purchases an animal item with Gaia Cash gets the coveted "Cool Cat" achievement, with fun titles named after our first items for animals! So if you're looking to be a Tiny Strawberry, or even a King Animal, why not visit La Victoire and see if any of the animal items strike your fancy?

Ah, the salty tang of the open sea! The piercing shriek of seagulls milling about, looking to steal a french fry or two! The roaring crash of the waves! The sharp shells lying in wait in the sand, just waiting for an innocent foot to stab into! I could wax poetical on it for days, friends. But I won't, because I've actually just run out of stuff to, uh... wax on. So maybe not for days. Minutes. Well, minute. Anyway! I've never really been in the ocean -- what with being a cat and all, and also the fact that I'm much more massive than I look and I sink kind of like a stone tied to a mountain -- but you know, I like to picture it. What's it like, piloting a schooner over the open waters? I guess I'll never know. But I know if I did ever captain a ship, I'd look fabulous doing it. Why? Just see for yourself!

-

Aye Aye Bonnie has all the commanding grace and seafaring fashion a real cap'n needs! Y'know, just like me. Not every sailor needs to be swarthy, I say. It's available now in La Victoire, and will be in the shop until March 8th, 11:59 PM EST! Why not set a course for our shop and pay us a visit?

Oh, Gaians. The last few days have just been awful! We repaired our ship and were ready to finally start our galactic road trip properly, but that horrible pirate Flynn ensnared us not fifteen minutes after blasting off! She took all our sparkly possessions, made fun of our beautiful hair, told us we ought to walk the plank—all sorts of mean stuff! She's a real bully. And just because we banished her to the cold reaches of space! You think she'd let go of a grudge by now but I guess not. Either way, she eventually let us go and, well, we've turned back towards Gaia once more to stock up on some new supplies. But she didn't get everything! Haha! We hid our precious Divinity's Reaches safely out of sight. So why not offer them up to Gaians while we get some of our pre-trip shopping done? Selling things helps calm us down, after all, and look at the beautiful prizes you could win!


Divinity's Reach is full of heavenly rewards, from sacks of gold to beautiful, super rare items! You can score up to five million gold, a popular Chance Item, one of a variety of gorgeous backwings, or possibly even a valuable 2003 Monthly Collectible! Not even that dreadful Flynn could steal such loveliness from us! They'll be available until March 5, 11:59 PM EST so drop by La Victoire and help us get back on our feet, if you're feeling generous!

Oh dear. It looks like my escapades in cookery have led to a... very minor disaster. You see, I was searing some hot dogs for my masterful (and quite delicious!) chien-chaud confit when the smoke alarm went off! For no reason! Or, well, if I'm being perfectly honest... Because there was a fire. Just a little one! Nothing serious! I mean, I managed to put it out. But now my kitchen is a bit more charred than I like it, and I can't do any cooking for a while. Sigh. Well, it was fun while it lasted. And of course, I can always live vicariously through this month's delectable Chance Item! With Budding Bistro I can experience what it's like to be a kitchen artisan, even if it means starting from the bottom and clawing my way to the top! Maybe you'll join me? After all, you're sure to earn more than just practical cooking experience! You could win a Cash Shop favorite, a valuable rare item, or even one of these tasty new exclusives:

-

So, do you think you have what it takes? Or will you end up on the chopping block? Perhaps if you're successful you could even give me a lesson or two on proper cooking. I mean, I think I've got a lot of raw talent! I just need to learn how to set things on fire less. Please, give Budding Bistro your best efforts! Or if you really want to how a kitchen works, why not try a bundle of nine? Happy cooking, everyone!

I've put plenty of it up in my Plunder—which you should definitely check out, if you're interested in bidding on lots of valuable items—but it's also added my store of precious gold!

In fact, tonight my booty is at a severe discount, as much as 60% off! Each Booty has the chance to contain up to 100 million gold and my Chest contains up to 250 million gold.

Has anyone here ever talked to Stein before? He's an interesting guy! Apparently he holds contests for Gaians where they can submit their own ideas for items, and then he makes those items and puts them up in his shop! Also, he's a all covered in stitches and parts from different people. So, you know. That's kind of unusual. But he's super nice! And his interest in fashion, particularly couture designed by Gaians, is really fascinating to me. So I figured, why not take a page out of Stein's book? I grabbed some fashion forward items along with some nice sacks of gold -- and an AMAZING something extra -- and tossed them all into this super cute shopping bag, and voila! We've got ourselves the brand new, super exciting Project Couture!

Ah, the sweet fragrance of lavender. It's said to be soothing, you know! Helps you sleep. Not that I need any help, since I get my usual sixteen hours of naptime a day without much difficulty. But Cygnus has a little trouble occasionally -- too busy worrying about "our decaying galaxy" or something like that to be able to catch some proper shuteye -- and so sometimes I sneak a little lavender-scented plugin into his room, just to help. He never complains about it, I'll tell you that much! And, you know, I wanna send those lovely, soothing vibes to you Gaians as well. So I took a fabulous item and colored it a sweet shade of purple! Check it out:

Beyond Lavender is beyond cute! So comfy and cozy. Makes me wanna curl up in a ball right on top of it and start snoozin'!

I've already talked about the fact that I'm not super into horror flicks, but Cygnus just can't seem to get enough of 'em. Just the other day he was watching this super creepy movie where this evil doll comes to life and starts, y'know, doing the normal evil doll stuff. Causing chaos, making faces, brandishing knives -- just being an overall menace. I couldn't sit through it 'cause I was too creeped out, but it did remind me a little of Gaia's own wicked little toy: Lucie! So I got to some coloring and... Voila! A gorgeous (and slightly creepy) new Lucie has arrived!

-

Luxurious Lucie is equal parts decadent, beautiful, and downright terrifying. It's available now in La Victoire, along with Little Lucie, Lovely Lucie, Lamenting Lucie, Lavish Lucie, and Lulling Lucie!

Do Gaians dream of electric sheep? I don't know! Maybe! I mean, it seems like a kind of strange thing to see in your sleep. But dreams are weird like that! You never know what's going to pop up. I mean, just the other day I was dreaming that I was scratching the largest, softest sofa I had ever laid paws upon, and I didn't realize until after all the yelling woke me up that I was accidentally clawing Cygnus' face. On an unrelated note, he's refused to speak to me for the past three days. But that's the power of the dreamworld, guys! Anything is possible. Man, even just talking about it is making me kind of sleepy. I'm probably gonna lay down soon, since I've only napped for about ten hours today. I wonder what I'll dream about? Maybe some amazing clothes, like these...


Would you like a chance at snagging some of these fabulous items? Then you ought to try Dreaming of Sheep! All you have to do is count your sheep until you doze off, at which point you'll no doubt be whisked away to your very own dream -- but the best part is the reward you'll score at the end! Choose gold and you could win up to one billion gold. Choose items and you might win valuable rares like Stellar Dreams or Lady Lunar! Either way, you're sure to be well-rested and happy when you wake up. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it's totally real! Dreaming of Sheep will be in the shop until March 8th, 11:59 PM EST, so make sure you don't sleep too long, or it'll be gone before you know it! Now if you'll excuse me, there's a cuddly, soft pillow on Cygnus' bed practically calling my name...

Fluffier! Like vanilla frosting!

So glad to see everyone all happy and, dare I say, animaltastic! I cannot even begin to tell you how excited *I* am about all the new talking animals hanging around the forums.

Friday, Friday, Friday! The most glorious day of the week! It's true, I read it in a magazine. That's right: I do read things besides scientific journals, you know. In fact, I'm thinking of boycotting several science-based publications. Why? They refuse to accept any of my articles! What, they don't think research on the viscosity of syrup and its effects on the topography of waffles is important? I assure you, in today's breakfast-driven culture, that my research has never been more pertinent or relevant. Ah, but I digress. As much as I enjoy experimenting with the best meal of the day, my true love will always be Evolving Items. And we have such a magnificent report to give today! Hardhearted has revealed more gorgeous new items, and Adamant Vault experiences a stunning final evolution!

Adamant Vault: At long last, you seem to have reached the pinnacle of of the actress' collection. These remarkable pieces hail from when she was at the peak of her fame and wealth. She would often throw exclusive parties in her own diamond strewn mansion, all but coating herself in the glittering jewels to host them. In a sea of priceless treasures, these are truly the most precious, splendid ones you've discovered. It seems that you have uncovered some flirty diamond eyelashes, a diamond studded gown, an extravagant diamond skin embellishment, a radiant diamond chandelier, and a pair of resplendent diamond wings. The Adamant Vault is now empty of all its beautiful bounty, but now you can carry on the actress' legacy by wearing all her breathtaking jewelry!

Hardhearted: Your fashion sense grows even wilder as you try on new pants and accessories! As you admire your stylish reflection in the mirror, you overhear a DJ on the radio say that your favorite band is holding a concert in the town you live in. Your heart thuds in your chest with excitement as you realize what you must do. You have to snag tickets for this amazing concert! It's officially your life's greatest priority.


Glorious! Almost as beautiful as syrup sparkling on a pancake. That's all we have for this week, Gaians, but be sure to listen in next Friday for another amazing Evolving Item report! Make sure you vote in our Weekly EI Poll to let us know what you think, and don't forget that you can see all these gorgeous EIs and more in La Victoire. See you next Friday, science lovers!

Y'know, they say hubris is the folly of man. Or at least, I think that's what they say. Who is "they" anyway? Look, the point is I said it, and that should make it an important enough quote, okay? But look, having pride in your appearance isn't a bad thing! Particularly when you look as good as I do. Now, I know it's hard to deal with the fact that you will never sparkle and shine the way my lustrous fur does, but that doesn't mean you can't become a very close second to my fabulousness! Take this gorgeous new recolor, for example. It's amazing enough to make anyone instantly stylish!

-

I don't think it's my ego talking when I say this set is totally swank. Pride of Hubris is all class and sass, with absolutely no comeuppance at all! Like me! That's right. Because if there's one thing I learned from that picture book of Greek mythology that I read the other day, it's that being overly proud of yourself never ever leads to any consequences whatsoever! Like that Icarus guy. He totally had the right idea! Actually, I probably oughta finish that chapter. I can't wait to read the part where he totally escapes and everything is perfect. Anyway! This will be in the shop until March 10th, 11:59 PM EST so why not visit La Victoire and do a little preening?

Oh. My. God. Please tell me everyone else sees the adorable little animals walking around and that I'm not going crazy. It's almost too cute to stand! I'm pretty sure I had a dream exactly like this, where there were fuzzy little friends EVERYWHERE, and we would have tea parties and lots of cake and cookies and I got to dress them all up in little outfits and ohmigosh ohmigosh ohmigosh. I've never been so excited in my life! Of course, I wanted to make sure all of our furry new Gaians feel welcome in my shop, so I've been baking up a storm! Sure, I had to order some really itty-bitty spatulas and muffin pans, but I've made a ton of food perfectly sized to fit into tiny animal paws! Oh, and I also picked special little flowers and I've made some fun new accessories for animals as well! Look, some critters are already enjoying all of my yummy treats and fun accessories!

-

Just looking at them is giving me a sugar high! I just... I've never seen anything so huggable in my entire life. If you're a hungry kitty, wolf, or bear looking to satisfy a sweet craving, please drop by Buttercup Cafe! I promise not to squeeze you too hard or squeal too loudly in your ear.

Amazing news, guys! So, there I was enjoying my latest nap in the storage room, snoozin' away on a nondescript pile of whatsits. But guess what happened when I woke up? I realized I was sleeping on a bunch of Dreaming of Sheeps! Crazy, right? Where did they come from? It's kind of spooky, really. But it's also a dream come true! That means I've got a few more to sell, and so I can extend the sale a few extra hours! So there's still an opportunity for Gaians to win gorgeous prizes like these:


Dreaming of Sheep gives you the chance to potentially win the item of your dreams! All you have to do is count your sheep until you doze off, at which point you'll no doubt be whisked away to your very own dreamland -- but the best part is the reward you'll score at the end!

Oww... Darnit! Sorry guys, I'm all sore. I was inspired by the latest items that we got in the shop and I spent all day attempting to braid my fur. As you can see, I didn't exactly meet with much success. Turns out my fur is just a hair too short to actually braid -- a fact that Cygnus neglected to tell me as he yanked on my poor coat in an "attempt" to plait it! I tell ya, he's a lot sneakier than he looks. Anyway, even if I can't make my fur into fashionable braids, it doesn't mean that you can't enjoy the luxury of a gorgeous plait or three! Just see what we've got in store for you guys...

-


Braided Fawn and Braided Noir are full of gorgeous hairstyles for even the most luxurious of hair. And the best part is there's no tugging or pain! Just straight up fabulousness. Sigh. I'm so envious. My fur is absolutely stellar, but sometimes I wish I could style it a little! Ah, well. They'll be in the shop until March 15th, 11:59 PM EST or until they sell out, so why not unleash your inner Rapunzel and try them on?

So much deliciousness... Even Cygnus tried a few things and he hates sweets! Well, admittedly, he hates everything. But still! As I was gnawing my way through another tray of cookies, I was struck by a sudden idea: why not share all this deliciousness with other Gaians? So, inspired by the very treats I was stuffing into my face, I made a few tasty bundles for Gaians to enjoy! Prepare to have your mouth start watering, 'cause I even arranged a little photoshoot of 'em!

We've got a few different bundles to choose from, depending on your flavor preference! There's the Vanilla Wafer Bundle full of old-fashioned sweetness, the Chocolate Wafer Bundle for anyone looking to be decadently rich, and the Strawberry Wafer Bundle bursting with fruity goodness!

Sure, there were some obstacles along the way: catastrophic engine failure, purple-haired pirates with ridiculous grudges, a few wrong turns here and there... But at long last, our tour is over! We're circling our way back home now, but our spaceship is so loaded down with souvenirs from the rest of our trip that we need to make some extra room before we go home!

So I ended up in a strange part of town the other day, Gaians. Everywhere I looked there was a guy in a blazer and sunglasses hopping around doing a weird kind of horsey dance. Actually, it was kind of awesome. And there was all this great food, and fun music -- I tell ya, it might have been totally different from what I'm used to, but I really loved it! And man, the clothes! So many nice things. But there was one item in particular that caught my eye, and so I decided to bring back as much as I could carry to offer up to Gaians lookin' to add some color to their wardrobes. Take a look!

Asshi's Norigae is so bright and cheerful that it's sure to put a smile on your face! Or make you yell at people's butts. I saw some of that too. It was kind of great.

It's hard to improve on what's already perfect, obviously, but if I were to dip myself in pure milk chocolate you just know I'd be looking both appetizing AND super stylish. And I bet the same principle applies to you Gaians too! I mean, just lookit how snazzy milk chocolate can be...

Hello Gaians,

It's time for another update! A lot has been going on so let's get right to it:

Jet, Cygnus, and P.U.G. have been awfully busy these past few weeks, but here are a few highlights!


  • Project Couture! This gave several Gaians the opportunity of a lifetime to work with one of Gaia's artists to create their dream item! These fabulous Gaian created fashions will soon be arriving in a store near you!
  • Teddy March! This rare limited quantity item sold out very shortly after its first debut. It was soon followed by Kitty March, Pandy March, and Bunny March, all of which were also smash hits! But the parade isn’t over yet. You never know what adorable face will be featured next atop a balloon...
  • New beautiful backwings! There are new backwings in La Victoire available in an array of cute colors. There are also a few wings in smaller sizes for animals too!


Wow! It's certainly been exciting to say the least—but they're not the only ones creating a buzz. It seems like Flynn, Nicolae and Loyal have also been quite busy...


  • After a few successful excursions into piracy, Flynn's back with a fully loaded Flynn's Plunder! Stop by for weekly updates and your chance to get your hands on some of the most rare and valuable items on Gaia! Word is she's already amassed over 8 billion gold in sales ....oh my!
  • Did someone say... black market? Just don't talk about it too loudly! Word on the street is Nicolae is looking for discerning buyers for his acquired donated goods. If you see him, Leon may want to speak with you. Anonymous sources say Nicolae is running an operation worth 9 billion gold! And he's still accepting bids on all his valuable items, so who knows how much he might end up making?
  • Loyal has tons of new mini wings in Dernier Cri! Be sure to stop by and check them out. He even made some for our new animal friends!


We obviously have lots of exciting new items, but how about projects? We recently released Animal Bases. If you haven't already tried it out, you absolutely should! You have the option of being a cat, a wolf, or a cuddly bear—and that's only the beginning! Prepare to see a lot more animal items coming out soon in Monthly Collectibles, Chance Items, and Gold Shops! We've even received word that a new adorable and mischievous animal fur will be debuting this week. Rina’s shop is now catering to animals as well!

Now, how about them events? A special thanks to everyone who attended our Valentine's/Gaiaversary event! Eleven years is a long time and it's thanks to all of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, everyone, for making each year absolutely amazing!

Are you a sleuth? Hopefully you participated in our Sherlock mini-event on Feb 21st! To those who did—well done solving the clues and finding the hidden item!

Here are some hints to events coming down the road...


  • Odanodan has been spotted lurking about lately—we suspect he's about ready to make his annual appearance. Keep your eyes peeled on March 17 and see if you can spot him! Maybe you'll be able to snag a treat from him as well!
  • Everyone's favorite Ringmaster stopped by last night and left us some sketches, recolor designs, and a whole bunch of confetti. How he managed to sneak into our office is a mystery to us, but we know better than to question his magic. We can't say exactly what Loyal has planned, but he left a cryptic note saying "It rolls into town very soon..." Might want to keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks—let us know if you spot anything!
  • Tax Day is coming, and Ivan is looking even more churlish than normal. We're not sure what he is on about, but he's been working all sorts of long, crazy hours and mumbling to himself about serious back taxes being owed.
  • Spring is almost here and you know what that means: sunshine, bunnies and rainbows hidden treats! Stay tuned for a fun and festive Easter event that'll have you shopping about looking around for hidden rewards!


That's it for now, stay tuned for more updates in the future! Have a great day, everyone!

Gracious, Gaians! I've been practicing my ukelele pretty regularly for nearly a month now, and you know what? I think I've gotten quite good! Look, I can play "Twinkle Twinkle" fairly well. Here, hang on—just gotta tune the darn thing and—Ack! No! A string snapped! This is heartbreaking news, Gaians! Wherever shall I find my musical inspiration now? How will I be a world-renowned concert ukelele player if my instrument of choice is broken? Oh, I can see it now. All those symphonies and orchestras of ukelele players, smug in their fully attached strings, playing beautiful ukelele concertos and mocking me with their ability to pluck more than two chords! All right, well, I simply must fix this. You'll have to excuse me for a while! In the meantime, however, why not check out this month's second Advance Chance? It's only just arrived!

What will the next CI be? Nobody is quite sure, but you’ll get the first crack at it with the March Advance Chance II. On the day of the next CI release, you’ll be able to open your bundle and start reaping the rewards of your CIs hours before they’re released to the general public, so you can start listing items on the Marketplace when hardly anyone has their hands on them yet.


Perhaps it has some new strings for my poor, poor ukelele... I knew I should've stuck with piano! My parents did always say I had such long, elegant fingers for an accountant... Or perhaps I ought to return to my passion for writing and try my hand at composing? Ah, well. I'll figure it out! In the meantime, feel free to pick up March's Advance Chance in La Victoire.

Then it'd probably smell pretty awful, even if you gave it a totally awesome name. But any of you guys ever wonder how a serene rose might smell? No? Because roses don't have emotional states? Well, fair enough! But maybe you've thought about what a serene rose might look like. Aha! Good, 'cause I'm here to show you just that!

Ah, the circus life! It must be really exciting, you know? There are tents! Acrobats! Incredible feats! 'Course, it's also got clowns... Which I'm less than okay with, honestly. Don't trust clowns. They just seem kinda shady, you know? Anyone could be behind that makeup. Anyone. Could be me. Could be Cygnus. Could be you! Either way, I like the circus 'cept for the clowns. I do make an exception for one special gal, though: Babette! We all remember the story of her lovely journey in Volant Reverie, right? Well, prepare to relive all the magic and wonder, as she's back with a brand new recolor sure to astound and amaze!

Y'know, guys, I know we've only just arrived on the cusp of spring here on Gaia, but I just can't help but long for the halcyon days of summer. Warm sun beating down on my lustrous fur, the humidity climbing to unbearable percentages, melty cherry popsicles and guys in vans selling ice cream... What could be better? Yeah, I definitely have a yen for the summers of yore! Alas, we've still got the tail end of winter and spring to slog through, but that doesn't mean I can't celebrate the season a little early! With that in mind, I present to you our latest recolor!

Man, we've had some really amazing bundles lately, haven't we? But here's the problem. We've still got them. There are, like, a bajillion of 'em just sitting in our storage room, taking up more space than I think we can afford! You know what they say: out with the old, in with the new! Time to clear some of these babies out! I'll miss 'em, of course -- I mean, they're top quality. But Cygnus is always complaining that our inventory is super disorganized, so I figure now is as good a time as any to clean house! Here's a list of all the bundles we'll be offering tonight:

• Herbalist Shop Bundle
• Rapturous Couple Bundle
• Oodles of Lace Bundle
• Princes & Thieves Bundle
• Blades of the Sky Bundle
• It's a Mad Mad Bundle
• Beyond Bundle II


That oughta give me some extra wiggle room! And by "wiggle room" I obviously mean "more space for napping". That just kinda goes without question. This is gonna be a quick sale, though, so they'll be in the shop until March 12th, 11:59 PM EST! Hope to see you around soon!

Hah! Perfect timing, Gaians. I've finally gotten really good at this whole "tossing dice" thing! I mean, look at how far I can throw them! Hang on, back up. No, further back. Further. Fuuurther. Okay, there! Perfect! Now watch as I toss these dice like a pro! ... Hah! They totally landed like, four feet away. That's a really good throw for a cat, you know. ... What do you mean that's now how you place with dice? You toss 'em, right? I'm supposed to look at the numbers? Aw, shoot. I guess I oughta practice some more... Which means I'm gonna put Dice Roll back in the shop so you can practice with me! And who knows? Maybe you'll win a great prize like the ones pictured here!


With Dice Roll it's simple to win tons of gold or a great item! Just toss the dice and see what you win.

Dice Roll will be in the shop until March 13th, 11:59 PM EST so why not visit La Victoire if you wanna toss them around a little? Although not too far, I guess. Since apparently that's not how this works.

YAY! Winter is finally almost gone! Man, am I sick of the cold. Seriously! I didn't come all the way from the frigid depths of space to spend my days freezing my poor little tail off, you know? It just ain't fair. Mmm, I can all but feel the warm breeze rustlin' my whiskers; it really seems like we're on the cusp of spring! Of course that means saying goodbye to winter. Not that I'm sure I'll miss it all that much. Still, winter does have a few things going for it... Like this gorgeous new bundle! Let's take a look at the Winter's Call Bundle, shall we?

-


Midnight Conductor: All aboard the last call for the Winter Train Express! This conductor is on the clock and ready to ferry the last snowflakes away to welcome spring. Includes his conductor's hat, snow white hair, conductor's coat, navy pants with shoes, eyepatch, and a pair of eyes that make you wonder what he's seen in his lifetime.

Fairy Lumi: This luminous fairy is getting ready for her warm springtime slumber, and taking the snow with her on the last call for winter. Includes her frosty hair, flirty eyes, corset, goodbye arm pose, floating legs, and a pair of icy fairy wings.

Available exclusively in the Winter's Last Call Bundle is Polie the Snow Fox! Looks like there's an adorable little stowaway on this train and he's leaving together with the winter snow! Take the little critter with you or chase after Polie as he steals all the sweets from the snack cart!

Cygnus: Looks like my "wimpy" bard dodges and counters, knocking Beardo unconscious. That's what you get for putting all your character points into strength and nothing else. Idiot.

Jet: What? Noooo... My poor Beardo... Man, I gotta take a break from all this Gauntlets and Goblins, I'm clearly getting way too into it. I think I'm starting to get emotionally attached! And also Cygnus is like one thousand times better at it than I am, even if he's playing some ridiculous lutist with a name I can't even pronounce. Do you guys wanna play too? Just gotta grab some of the dice here and, well, wish for the best! Who knows? Maybe you'll find a treasure chest and win some of this awesome loot!


Critical Roll is easy to play! No need to design a character or assign stats, just toss the dice and see if you win your encounter! You could win items like Blade of the Dawn Sky or Gabriel's Wings, or up to 250 million gold. If you win gold you'll even have the chance to try for a critical hit and double your winnings. Fumbling, however, means you lose half your winnings. So be careful! It's a dangerous fantasy world out there. Critical Roll will be in the shop until March 15th, 11:59 PM EST, so pull up a chair and roll for some initiative! This is gonna get ugly...

Gaians, I think it's finally time. Time to let go of some old memories. Yes, they may be awful fond, but the fact of the matter is they're taking up way too much space in my apartment and I keep losing Mr. Bibbles in piles of old items that I don't use anymore. So I've gathered up all my old Chance Item commons and scattered them about for any interested Gaians to come and claim! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Ivan's Garage Sale.

I've got all sorts of things for you guys here! Romance Pendants and Solar Hairpins, Argyle Scoodies and Eerie Goods -- plus tons more!

I'm sure it goes without saying that every kitten has a certain feature they take the most pride in. Ears, whiskers, adorable little noses and paws... But for me? Well, my badge of honor is my tail. Just take a look at it! But not too closely, mind you, because it's lustrous sheen could probably blind a lesser Gaian. Behold its majestic beauty! Its glossy fur! Its perfect shape! The way I can wiggle it around! I know, I know. I'm fabulous all over, but my tail really is a cut above the rest. And while you can never possess a tail as wonderful as mine, you can sure come pretty darn close! How? By paying Attention to De Tails, of course!

-

Just look at them go! Seriously, I could watch that thing for hours. I probably will, but later! For now I gotta tell you about all these awesome tails we got. Look at how they move! And they're super easy to pick up. All you gotta do is play Attention to De Tails and see which one you get! Who knows? It might just bring out the animal in you! It's going to be in La Victoire for a while yet, so why not visit us soon and see all the great items we've got in stock? Lookin' forward to being tail buddies with you all!

Y'see, I spend a lot of time wandering around, looking for incredible new fashions that I'm sure Gaians will love. And sometimes I find amazing stuff! And sometimes I don't. Who the heck wants slinky-based couture? That just sounds uncomfortable. But I've just managed to stumble upon an outfit that is not only super stylish AND super cute, but it's also pretty practical to boot! Take a look for yourself -- believe me, you're sure to fall in love.

Fabulous Friday is finally here, Gaians! And not a moment to soon. Honestly, the time I spend between these reports seems to drag slower and slower each week! Makes me wish that time machine I spent so much effort on actually worked. Then I could just fast forward to every Friday, give my amazing report, and hop right back in my machine to head straight to the next Friday! In a perfect world, I suppose. Although I guess it might cause some issues with the timeline... Potential time collapses... Unpredictable parallel universes... But I guess that's the price we all have to pay for convenience, right? Well, no matter. The machine isn't up and running -- yet -- and I've got way more exciting things to talk about! We have another evolution from Hardhearted to look over, and a brand new EI! Allow me to introduce the newly discovered The Cocklebur King!

-


Hardhearted: By some incredible miracle, you've managed to score tickets to the concert of your dreams! Time to dress to impress. Determined to go the extra mile, you restyle your hair and buy some brand new clothes! Staring at yourself in the mirror at the end of the day, in all your punkish finery, you can't help but think to yourself: "Damn! I look good."

The Cocklebur King: Once upon a time, a wild beast fell in love with a human man. The beast was a canid, a maneater, the master of the densest and darkest parts of the forests. It hunted without pity on the edges of the paths that passed through the outskirts, dragging its prey into the tangled thickets of underbrush where they would never be found. Until one day it saw him: a human hunter, strong, with fire in his eyes.


So incredible and it's only just day one! A remarkable find, if I do say so myself. That's all the time we have for this week, but be sure to tune in to next week's Evolving Item Report for all your science and dietary needs! Don't forgot to vote in our Weekly EI Poll for your favorite evolutions this week, and remember you can always see these items up close in La Victoire! Have a great weekend, everyone!

Includes a ribbon-decorated tiara, fancy updo hairstyle, warrior's battle cry, metal chestplate, high-waisted skirt, and more!

Achiram's Intent: As quick with an arrow as he is with a quip, Achiram hopes to one day prove he's as strong a warrior as his older sister, and finally earn her respect. Includes his rakish hair, piercing green eyes, fur-lined vest, gold ribbon armband, suspender pants with boots, and more!

I think I can manage some now, I guess. I'm still working on my art and stuff and I think it's been going pretty well. Decided to revisit an old Gaian classic and add some of my own flair. Here, see for yourself:

I like to think that these White Laurels would only have been handed out to the purest of heroes, you know? Not that ancient Greece had a lot of those. Have you guys ever read any of their mythology? Long story short: everyone is crazy, and everyone gets their comeuppance. At least it's honest. Anyway, they're available now in La Victoire, along with the Ebon Laurels and the original Golden Laurels.

Okay, okay. Hang on. So, apparently, Cygnus' silly lutist elf brat is some sort of lost prince from the ancient kingdom of Ican'tpronouncethenamia, and thus is now super rich on top of being super powerful and also part vampire. How? How is any of this fair? I just... HRNGGHH! BEARDO RAGE! He's so much better than I am at Gauntlets and Goblins and it's just not fair! That's it. I just gotta practice more, you know. Maybe if I chuck a ridiculous amount of dice around I'll magically become luckier with my rolls? Because I'm losing, like, every single one. And if there is one thing I can't take, it's losing at a fantasy game featuring ridiculous characters with rules that seem to be increasingly haphazard and tailored to Cygnus' playstyle! It ain't right! So, okay. With the new Critical Roll (48 Pack) there should be tons of dice available for me to become a real expert at this thing. And win some awesome prizes, too!


Critical Roll is easy to play -- just toss the dice and see if you win your encounter! You could win items like Blade of the Dawn Sky or Gabriel's Wings, or up to 250 million gold. If you win gold you'll even have the chance to try for a critical hit and double your winnings. Fumbling, however, means you lose half your winnings. Which I've done way more times than I feel is appropriate. Just remember that Critical Roll leaves La Victoire on March 15th, 11:59 PM EST. Okay. Deep breaths, Jet. No more losing! I'm here to punch things and drink health potions, and I'm all out of health potions. LET'S DO THIS, BEARDO.

You've got until tonight, March 15th, 11:59 PM EST to toss a dice and see what you win! Me, on the other hand?

16 Last chance to grab Underworld Descent!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Last chance to grab Underworld Descent! - [NPC] Ivan Sun Mar 16, 2014 12:38 am; Mar 16

Well, it's finally that time, Gaians. I've spent a while finishing my ballad to Underworld Descent, and I think it's finally time for its unveiling.

Oh, Orpheus and Eurydice reunited at last
But cruel Hades set forward an impossible task
To win back Eurydice Orpheus had to walk and walk
Eyes straight forward, no turning to gawk
And so Orpheus set out, unsure if Eurydice was behind
Terrible thoughts constantly dancing through his mind
But he escaped the Underworld with Eurydice in tow
But that part of the story I'm sure that you know
And so I've no more to sing, I will have to relent
I hope you've enjoyed the Underworld Descent!


And with that my ascent into rockstardom is truly complete! If you'd like to celebrate with me, why not pick up an Underworld Descent to revisit Orpheus' story one more time? If you're feeling particularly adventurous you could even try out a bundle of nine! Don't forget that you could win a Cash Shop favorite, a valuable rare item, or a totally rockin' new exclusive. Underworld Descent leaves La Victoire March 18th, so be sure to check it out before it disappears!

Did you guys know there's an alpaca farm just down the road from La Victoire? I had no idea! I've been here over half a year now and no one ever bothered to tell me. How could no one tell me!? I feel so betrayed, guys. I love alpacas. They're fluffy and tall and cute and they make all sorts of ridiculous faces. But I was talking to the owner, and apparently he's got some special alpacas lookin' for a good home or two. And I couldn't think of any better place to live than with Gaians themselves! So I told him I'd take a whole passel of the adorable critters and offer them up to Gaians looking to add that extra special something to their home! Or potentially barn. Let's meet our new friend, shall we?

Bourbon the Alpaca is just as happy to be your friend as he is to give you a ride! Wherever you need to go you're sure to get there in style when you're with him.

But even with my schedule being an absolute circus, I still manage to find time to indulge in a creative impulse every now and then. Every artist needs an outlet, after all.

18 Play Blackjack or Bust to win gold or fabulous prizes!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Play Blackjack or Bust to win gold or fabulous prizes! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Tue Mar 18, 2014 11:59 am

I learned a new game the other day, Gaians! It's called blackjack, despite the fact that it doesn't involve beating people over the head with a club. Disappointing, I know, but it's still a ton of fun! Basically the idea is you get two cards, and the total of those two cards adds up to a number. The goal of the game is to get the cards to add up to twenty-one! So you can stay, or hit -- so long as you get 21 or under, you're pretty much golden! If you go above, though... Well. You bust. It's so much fun! I've made Cygnus play it with me for the past three hours but eventually he got sick of it and wandered off to take a nap or something. I dunno, I was so focused on the cards I wasn't really paying attention. Hey, would you guys mind stepping in and playing a few rounds with me instead? I promise it'll be worth it! I mean, just look at all the great prizes you could win!


With Blackjack or Bust the game is real simple! You get two cards that add up to a number. Depending on what number you get, you're gonna wanna hit or stay! Staying wins you a moderate amount of gold -- but if you're adventurous like me, that just ain't good enough. You gotta go for that twenty-one! If you hit and score twenty-one or under, you win extra gold! If you bust, however... Well, at least you still win a compensation prize! It could be anything from Heart x Mind to Princess Chimes. Oh, and the gold you could win? Up to one billion, if you're really lucky! So whaddayah say? Play a few rounds with this poor kitten? I'd sure appreciate it! I'm gonna be playing games until March 19th, 11:59 PM EST so I hope to see you real soon!

I "intercepted" a trading vessel full of incredibly useful alchemy ingredients just a short while ago, and took it upon myself to "relieve" them of some of their cargo. And guess what? I'm passing the benefits on to you! My plunder is now fully stocked with precious alchemy ingredients, such as Demon's Tears, Demon Blood, White Body Dye, and Wings Quest Formulas. So what are you waiting for? Go to Flynn's Plunder and bid to your heart's content!

18 The seal is weakening on March's 2nd Advance Chance!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement The seal is weakening on March's 2nd Advance Chance! - [NPC] Ivan Tue Mar 18, 2014 7:41 pm

Do you hear that strange hum in the air? I swear, it's not just me, is it? Is my tinnitus coming back? Oh, bother. Just when I thought I had finally adjusted to it. But I really don't think it's only me hearing things. Mr. Bibbles has been acting very strangely, for one. He's been yowling at odd hours, as if trying to match the pitch of the note I keep hearing! Also he keeps walking into walls. I'm starting to get a little concerned about him. But now he's just plunked himself down by the Advance Chance, mewing and cooing at it as if he expects it to burst open at any moment! And I do have to say, that seal does look weaker than it did yesterday...

What will the next CI be? Nobody is quite sure, but you’ll get the first crack at it with the March Advance Chance II. On the day of the next CI release, you’ll be able to open your bundle and start reaping the rewards of your CIs hours before they’re released to the general public, so you can start listing items on the Marketplace when hardly anyone has their hands on them yet.


How exciting! I'm so ecstatic I might burst into song! Our lovely little Advance Chance will remain in the shop for a while yet, so why not visit La Victoire and see if you can puzzle out the strange noise I'm hearing? Well. Hopefully that we're hearing.

Hah! I've finally managed to restring my ukelele and am now able to return to practicing my little ditty from earlier. What was I playing again? Twinkle Twinkle? Mary Had a Little Lamb? Hot Cross Buns? I have so many songs already in my repertoire, you see. I'm really quite the young talent! But, alas, even my masterful fingers can't quite take on the more classical ukelele pieces. Did you know Bach wrote extensively for the instrument? And that Handel called it "the miniature, silly guitar of the gods"? Truer facts have never been spoken! Still, I can certainly work my way up to that point. I mean, no one appreciates an orchestra or symphony more than I do! Particularly if it's got a ukelele in it. Ah, but perhaps you haven't learned to appreciate classical music? Well then, you really ought to attend Rising Concerto! Who knows? You might just walk away with a greater love for music! Or perhaps you'll win a Cash Shop favorite, a valuable rare item, or a beautiful new exclusive:

-

Such beauty all but inspires me to play! I'm going to be over here, plucking away at my instrument of choice, but I do hope you choose to attend Rising Concerto. Don't forget you can always go for an encore performance with our fabulous bundle of nine! Enjoy the show, everyone!

20 Cash Shop Update: Guardians of the Damned Bundle!Edit

  • Icon announceAnnouncement Cash Shop Update: Guardians of the Damned Bundle! - [NPC] Jet & Cygnus Thu Mar 20, 2014 1:24 pm

So I guess I've been paying a lot of attention to all this high fantasy stuff lately, on account of spending so much time with Cygnus, but do you know what I really like? Urban fantasy! Y'know: a mixture of modern and magic, with bits of the supernatural just sort of creepin its way into normal life. That's what really excites me! So Cygnus can keep all his elves and his dwarves and his twenty-sided die -- I'm gonna go back to what I love. Which just so happens to be makin' awesome bundles for you guys! Inspired by the whole "urban fantasy" thing, I've created some amazing new items that I really think exemplify the theme...

-

Hell's Mistress: A fierce demonic witch hellbent on getting exactly what she wants. Anyone who stands in her way will no doubt feel the brunt of her incredible arcane powers. Includes her triple horns, violet windswept hair, studded jacket, blouse, torn leggings, short skirt, and accessories.

Unholy Exorcist: A cursed man determined to cleanse the world of the demons that haunt his dreams. Does he really want to purify the world of its demonic infestation, or is this secretly an act of vengeance? Includes his flaming hair, red hoodie, pristine shirt, tattered jeans, sneakers, flaming tail, and flaming gauntlet, ready to fight at a moment's notice.

Available exclusively in the Guardians of the Damned Bundle is the Grimm Lolita! The remains of a dearly loved one, once cherished greatly by her family and stolen away by a grim twist of fate... Includes a standing coffin, arms at rest, frilled shirt, babydoll shoes, bow bustle, and her white, skeletal remains.


Way cooler than a dude with a wooden stick or a lute whapping you over the head, right? These guys are just wicked awesome! You really oughta stop by La Victoire and check it out. This bundle is gonna be in the shop for a while yet, so you've got plenty of time to drop by and try on these fabulous outfits!

Cygnus: Hello, everyone. Well, it's time for another purple recolor, courtesy of yours truly. Why? Because, y'know. Purple is the best. Everyone looks better with a little purple added. And a lot of purple? You can't beat that kind of thing, really. So, in the interest of trying to make everyone look as amazing as possible, I've taken my brush to another popular Gaia item and colored it to suit my needs. Which involve lots of purple. Okay, uh -- let's just take a look, you can see what I mean.

I heard about the coolest thing today! You guys ever learn anything about falconry? Basically you train a totally awesome bird to be your best friend and do your bidding. Or, you know, something like that. Admittedly I only kind of skimmed the article. But man, that sounds cool! What if I could train a falcon to take orders from me? I wonder what I'd make it do. ... Probably nick candy from Cygnus' room, if I had to take a guess. Or at least distract the big lug while I do it myself. Sigh... A kitten can dream, I suppose. I'm not sure that falconry is right for me, alas, but I think it'd be perfect for some Gaians! Which is why I went ahead and found this great item perfect for you elegant falconers out there! Check it out:

-

Rakish Raptor is all class, but with that amazing falcon at his command I'm guessing you probably don't wanna piss him off! This gorgeous ensemble is available now in La Victoire, and it'll be on the shelves until March 29th, 11:59 PM EST or until it sells out! You really oughta stop by and try this number on.

So then why can't I seem to have any luck when rolling dice? It's driving me nuts! Someone as wonderful as I am deserves to have all the luck ever, I think. It's not right! But, y'know, I've taken some steps to... correct this horrible cosmic wrong. I found myself a special pair of dice that, no matter what I do, always seems to have the perfect outcome for me.

Y'know, I like to consider myself the Hyde to Cygnus' Jekyll. I see myself pretty realistically, after all. Why do I think that? Because I'm the more awesome of the two of us, of course. Isn't that what the story was about? I haven't actually read it. But Hyde seems like the kinda guy you could invite to a fun party, whereas Jekyll is probably too cooped up in his room moping about the "end of the universe" and ridiculous stuff like that and -- well, okay. Maybe I'm projecting a little. Maybe Jekyll isn't that bad. I mean, he does have some pretty amazing taste in clothes. And now they're available in an all new color, courtesy of my magic and totally awesome paintbrush! Check it out:

Jekyll's Ethics is so totally awesome that it might be a little immoral. Then again it's his ethics, and not mine! And I say there's nothing immoral about being amazing. I mean, look at me! Anyway, it's available now in La Victoire if you'd like to try it on. Or, if you're interested in nabbing 'em all, you should check out Jekyll's Collection which contains the whole creepy, colorful ensemble!
