Hey, guys. Today I will be tearing down a rumor that’s seriously getting on my nerves: the rumor that opening the chests in the Forgotten Desert lessens your chance of getting rares.
What proof is there of this?? Sure, it gives you a boatload of lag, but it’s playable like that. Amber opens every chest she gets and then calls everyone else to her to open it, and it doesn’t affect the prizes at all.
I could be wrong. I haven’t contacted AJHQ about this, but I am almost completely sure it’s fake. An example of my luck with the chests: Animal Jam: Awesome Day.
Seriously, people. Just a few minutes ago I saw a girl ragequit because someone opened a chest. It’s stupid and pointless. I’ve gotten an arctic hood, rare spiked collar, a rare beard, and a bunch of other random rares while getting every chest I find. If you don’t believe me:
You can’t honestly say that you get non-rare stuff if you get the chests, can you?
Anyway, that’s today’s RUMOR SQUASH. I may do some more RUMOR SQUASHing if I ever find another RUMOR to SQUASH.
Mallory was getting used to life in the sky. Her beautiful silver wings would take her anywhere, and life was so much better than it was on the ground. She’d gotten a job as a waitress at a café and made two friends, Breeze and Charlie.
Mallory was getting ready for work. Her hair was refusing to lie flat, so she ended up wearing a black baseball cap with pictures of birds on the side. Not her favorite, but she didn’t want to look like a vagrant, so she wore it anyway.
When she got to the café, everyone was running around polishing, dusting, and cleaning, even though it already looked spotless.
“Whoa, what’s the rush?” said Mallory.
“Haven’t you heard?” squealed Breeze. “The Queen of the Skyland is coming here to have a meeting!”
Mallory’s eyes widened. Even though she was new, she understood the whole king-and-queen thing. She grabbed a mop that was leaning against the wall and started scrubbing. After all, she thought, there was a dirty spot there anyway.
After a morning spent scrubbing, the three employees waited until noon, when the Queen was due. When she walked in, the sight took Mallory’s breath away. She had beautiful snow-white wings and a huge lacy dress.
“My lady!” gasped Breeze, and sank into a curtsy. Mallory and Charlie quickly followed.
Following the Queen was a group of similarly fancy people, both men and women, of which there was about three.
“What can I get you, Your Highness?” said Mallory.
“Just a cup of coffee,” said the Queen pleasantly. The rest of her group ordered, and Mallory, Breeze, and Charlie hurried back to the kitchens to get the orders ready.
“Now, to business,” Mallory heard the Queen say in a low voice. She stopped dead and listened. She knew she shouldn’t be eavesdropping on the Queen, but she couldn’t help herself.
“Sightings of the Earth-people in their flying machines have been reported more than usual, and it can only mean one thing.”
“Are you saying…” The other person’s voice trailed off.
The Queen nodded. “Skyland is being invaded!”
This story isn’t as crazy as the friend’s that ate a jalapeno and ended up with 93 days of membership, but it’s pretty good.
My story starts with Annabelle and her brother. They played Animal Jam with me, too, and both stocked up on what must have been two hundred dollars’ worth of membership. They both got lots of members only stuff, like arctic wolves and eagles, and I have to admit they were pretty slick jammers.
Then Annabelle’s brother quit. He said he was getting tired of it, but he didn’t delete his account. Annabelle tried to tell me what he did on Animal Jam, but our chat was messed up and nothing was coming across. She called me three days later and informed me that her brother had quit Animal Jam and was giving me his account. I flipped out, since he had unlocked a snow leopard, an eagle, and a lion. It didn’t come with very much stuff, but it had more than 160 days of membership, and that’s all I needed.
If you have a story better than eating jalapenos to get membership, I challenge you to tell me in the comments.
Thanks for reading! Now you understand why I was glad when my friend quit Animal Jam, haha.
Hey, guys. I got on Animal Jam today to take a screenshot to use as my avatar and found that a new, eagles-only adventure had come out: The Forgotten Desert. It took me quite a while to find it, but here’s the directions: go to Adventure Base Camp and go down. There’s a sign with an eagle on it. Fly over the water straight in the direction the arrow’s pointing, and it’ll take you to the portal.
The landscape of this adventure reminded me instantly of Act II of Diablo III, which was a bit unpleasant given that that’s my least favorite part. I am all the more thankful that my friend quit Animal Jam now – I’ll tell that story in another post – and so, as my eagle, I joined a girl in Jamaa Township. My eagle, Miss Rockybelle, wasn’t even on level one, so I was glad to find that there’s no level requirement for this adventure. I finished it in fifteen minutes – surprise! – so now I’m writing this article. Does anyone have thoughts about this adventure or this post? If so, please post them in the comments below! I seriously love seeing comments on my posts, and I flipped out when I saw the comment on my Extreme Minecraft Sadness post.
Anyway, thanks for reading, you rock!!
P.S. If anyone has figured out the purple crystals in the Forgotten Desert yet, please tell me, as I am very, very stuck.
