Bunling in the Moon

“There’s a bun in the moon!” The smallest bunling hopped up and down excitedly. “I can see her!”

Addler shook his round head slowly. “Nope. Moon is a prittiful star lady, like Ladybun! All glowing and radiant and gentle and kind toward critters and generous with noms and-“

Bunlings pondered this claim carefully, peering at the moon in the sky, washed in its light.

“It’s so big that if there’s a bun there, surely it’s a whole nest! Many nests. Burrow!”

“‘n if there’s a leidi in there, she must be giant! Like Ceri!”

“‘s both.” Said the more talkative of the squirrel brothers. “Obviously. There’s a star lady in the sky, ‘n you can’t see her because she’s all kah-moh-flaaazed, ‘n you see just stars on her skin. But she wears moon on her head, like Ladybun always wears all the things ever.”

Critters listened eagerly, eyes growing larger, ears perking, occasional excited thump of a paw on the soft grass the only sound.

“AND. And. On that moon on her head there’s a bun. Just like Ladybun carries critters with her, the great giant star lady carries moon bun on her head, too.”

“Oooooooooo.” Critters sighed in unison, peering back in the sky. Reverent silence fell, broken after a moment by Addler’s dreamy voice.

“…so, do you think she has moon cakes?”

The Night When the Abyss Glows

It is the night of colours breaking through the darkness. The night when even the Abyss glows. The night when the Lost, the Exiled, the Banished can find their way again.

They have waited, oh, how they have waited. Each night a thousand more, wrapped in the dark, their sense of self eroding until they are one with the Abyss, one dark being forever waiting. Until the Night arrives, until the glow separates them once more, gifts them separation, an identity. Shows them the way out.

For this is the night when the Abyss glows, the night when all the doors are open.

The Silence of Stones

They can speak, the stones. They could tell stories of the world before green growth, before soft organic beings wandering around. They could talk of veins of magma, hearts of fire, spirit of magic so old that it needs no name.
They remember sensing the movement on their surface, the new shapes, the curiosity. They remember the Plan, the creation of forms that could communicate with these strange, soft things. They remember how they were cut loose, these drops of old stone and energy, separated from the whole; now mobile, individual, alone.
They know some day the Children of the Stone will return to them and teach them about the lights and sounds, soft creatures and fast-living beings. Fast-dying beings. Until then the Stones stay silent in their vigil, silent in their long wait and slumber.

Fallen Gods Inc. 11th Anniversary Festival is almost over, although there’s still activities and events such as the Ice Olympics and Noobcon left. One of the things leaving Selidor at the end of October is the Fortune Teller, where you still can win a complete avatar Opus for free, by simply finding your match and sitting with them to listen to Teller’s ultimate wisdoms. A red ruby version of the avatar is for sale in the market on the store’s rooftop, and an amethyst version of the skin is a reward in the Quasar Hunt (also ending on the last of October). All this to say that if you haven’t visited Selidor and the various Anniversary activities and events yet, now’s the time!

More information and previews about Opus.

Teleport to Selidor.

Fallen White Bunlings

“But are you SURE the matsikal fotoshop will give me tattoo? Maybe we should try crayons instead?”

“Yes, I’m sure. …and the result might still look like crayons, but I promise, you will have a Fallen tattoo and can participate in the contest.”

“Yeytattoo!”

“Exactly that. Now just pose well, wiggle your nose… aaaand there!”

“Where where?”

“Just a saying. Means we’re done. All good!”

“Allgud!”

Flower Fae

They’re called by many names: flower fae, lily spirits, petal pixies, frippery fronds… figments of your imagination, or ‘I definitely had too much to drink’ among the most popular ones. They awaken with the sun, wiggle out of the protective petals of the flower and get to work.
What is it they do, you might wonder. The answer is obvious, for they are flowers. They soak in the warm rays and daylight and look beautiful. It’s not easy, they tell me. So much sun to catch, so much beauty to show off!
For the rarest of them, those growing on distant planets, they might even have to catch several suns, and a couple of moons before they can rest. It isn’t easy being beautiful, but definitely worth every indulgently spent moment lazing in the warm sun.

The Between is Breached

“Tell me, minions mine, what news from the Border, what word from the Threshold, what whispers from the Between?”

“O Mistress Most Magnificent, tonight is the Night: the Border opens, the Threshold is crossed, the Between breached. The cards so pronounce, the runes declare, the moons of nether shine upon the Door.”

“Witness then, my vicious vouboos, witness and rejoice: it is time to summon spirits to wander the waking world. Upon my call they shall come, my words they shall heed, my will they shall follow. The mortal world shall feel their presence as they walk its streets: truths among lies, surreal realities amongst disguises, hidden in plain sight. 

Each step they take draws shadows from human hearts, each inhale of stolen breath drains courage, each bastion of rationale besieged by doubt, assaulted by belief older than this newly-found love of facts.”

“Their hearts fill with dark whispers and undeniable certainty that there is something near them: behind them in the room, in the dark corner of the street, under the bed, just out of sight but so certainly there they can hear the breath that is not drawn. Their hearts become ours. This night, this night when the Between is breached.

This night they know that underneath the fairest of Ariels lies Caliban awaiting. This night the nether realms are empty, for their creatures all walk amongst you.”

Magnificent masquerade this Halloween: keep your eyes open, pay attention to the corner of your eyes. Who knows what you might see.

Many events have their last day today, so take a moment in your trick-and-treating to make sure you have all you wanted! If you missed the events, check out the main stores later.

Red Confession


“I don’t normally reveal my secrets to mortals, nor confess to one thing or another. I’m usually what people confess about, not the one whispering my own thoughts and considered discretions. This time, however, I must admit one thing: red colour wraps me in delightfully crimson moods.”

“I might slumber in my monochrome silvery skin, relaxed and restful, but the moment I wiggle into something red I feel my horns gleaming brighter, something slow and primal awakening within me. All for this delicious colour that calls to me, promising me things mortals only dream of.”
