SSO showed us on their IG today that these beautiful comics will be coming out! At the moment, they’re only available in Swedish but English soon. They’re about Alex before the start of the SSO game which is really cool because we know there’s stuff going on because of the insight we got with her Mum. Her Mum found it hard to cope with and her brothers so there should hopefully be interesting stuff. I do wish it was a book because I don’t like comics but still it looks quite fun. I think it’s good SSO are broadening their products a bit - should keep the game going!
I’m so tired and sort of upset because of things IRL. I’ve messed something up that I can’t really change but I have something on tomorrow so I’m trying to get myself ready while sort of in tears because I’m an emotional person. So yes, I’m fine, but put it like this, I can’t wait for a weekend away this weekend. I should really sleep now. The arabs look good but right now, they aren’t my focus. I think I might get one but not sure: haven’t seen it in game yet.
So, as I said, it was my birthday yesterday and of course, people being ultra sweet I got loads and loads and loads of birthday wishes. So many people wrote posts (although I didn’t actually take screenshots of a lot), I was on peoples stories, people Whatsapped, dmed, messaged me in game, mailed me - the lot. I was eve taken by surprise when Caitlin Lightlake took me to Apple Grove for me to find a line of FR screening happy birthday! We then went to the ice cream place and they all did acts for me. Everything from a speech about sausages, to a poem, to dance offs and even to songs. It was just amazing and it made me smile so much. It’s unbelievable the love in this community and I was so happy to be a part of FR and of course all of those people who wished me Happy Birthday from outside FR. It’s lucky that such a community exists and I am so grateful to be a part of it!
I’m going to make a gallery of all of the stuff that people said to me for my own memories because every mail, post and birthday wish was previous but before that, here is a poem written by Ruby Riverbell:
There once was a newb named Lisa,
Destined to own FR,
These crazy bunch of idiots,
Must have left her scarred,
One day this girl called Lisa,
Said her nick was gonna be Li,
Everyone hated spamming that,
So instead they just said " hi ",
When it was FR's 2 years,
Li was absolutely great,
At organising everyone,
And she wasn't late
And she wasn't Now it's Lisa's birthday ,
And everyone celebrates,
We all need to make sure,
To get her the right size cake,
Now we all love Li,
even though she's a newb,
We have one final song to sing,
And you should all know it too,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to The Newb,
Happy birthday to you 💞💞!
HAPPY EASTER! Hopefully, this year in my family we’ll actually celebrate Easter. What with none of my close family being Christian, there isn’t much point apart from the fact that I want chocolate. Easter means zilch to me (along with every Christian festival, in my opinion if you’re going to celebrate stuff then celebrate the original stuff rather than the other stuff). But enough about religion (I could rant about it forever). I hope that you all had a great Easter and now have loads of chocolates (or an easter toy and candles in the case of my mum). So, how many eggs have you managed to find?
Ok random day in my life video in coming! Well I’ll start off with what happened in my real life before I progress onto what happened in game.
So it all started this morning helping out with the start course at my kayaking club. There were so many little ones to help with and they were so sweet! In the afternoon, I did some SUP boarding with two mates before we jumped off the jetty into the 12 degrees water... IT WAS AWESOME! I thought that one of our coaches was going to tell us off for something but he actually told us to jump off the 1m high jetty - even more awesome!!! On the way home, we stopped off at a friends house. We did some archery there (I did decently and got the red which was ok for my first proper go). My Dad and my friends Dad were laughing at us failing to shoot a water balloon so we made them have a go. My Dad has never tried it before and well... he had enough power... enough power to send the arrow through the trees, through the hedge and onto the road! However, my friends dad hit the water balloon first time…
Then I logged online. Both of my sisters have started playing Star Stable again so it’s them on those accounts, not me. Anyways, the Frosties and I decided to stalk them (like everyone good older sister should). We chased them around a bit and then “sat” down with them at a cafe. This is why I love FR, honestly…
We ended the day having some very strange conversations. What if Harry Potter was a lizard, not a wizard, and he went to lizard school where he found out his parents were lizards? Oh wow that would be amazing. Rose still wants to con her way up to leader so just tried to dare me into ranking her up. Not happening Rose, not happening.
I haven’t shared one of my outfits for a while so here is one now! I’ve practically been living in this one as it’s quite summery and encompasses some of the latest fashion from fashion week (I like to be up to date). Please do not copy this outfit entirely. Inspiration is fine and using a similar theme/ similar things is fine but just not the whole thing because that’s just unoriginal!

Small life update. As some people will know in my previous two vaccinations I had a massive panic after them including black spots, dizziness and vomiting. I was terrified of having another one because it was like giving permission for someone to stab me with something that could make me feel very unwell. I backed out the first time 2 weeks ago but I came back again to do it yesterday and after much shaking and crying I did the jab! My arms hurt at the moment and I was very shaking and teary afterwards because I was so glad it was over. I hardly had a reaction to it as well so I’m happy right now and in the middle of planning a Harry Potter fan fiction about Tessa Von Silverstein. (Ps, no post yesterday because of the above.)
I was thinking today about my future. In real life, I haven’t recently been offered a place at a science college and I accepted. It made me wonder, what do I want to do in the future? I don’t want to work at SSO (although it would be awesome) but if I did, what jobs would I want? Well here they are.
1. I’d love to be able to write the quest lines. As you know, I love writing so writing the quest lines would be a dream come true. I’d love to see my stories made real and played out by the players.
2. It would be awesome to do someone like Matilda does with the Star Stable Show. I love acting + performing (I actually have an exam this weekend -casually freaks out-) and it looks like a lot of fun. I also enjoy video editing.
3. Finally, I’d like the be a customer support person. First, I’d love to be able to make so many players happy by meeting a GM. Also, I’ve had practise at replying to everyone nicely (no matter my mood or how stupid their letter is) from FR. That looks like a very fun job.
What would you like to do at Star Stable?
It happens a lot, people leave SSO as they feel it takes up too much time. People feel that leaving will help them with their school work and other irl commitments such as seeing friends. The truth is, most of the time if you couldn't do it with SSO you won't be able to do it without SSO as most just fill that time with another things like watching videos. I've been there.
So how do I kayak, climb, do drama exams, keep up (high) grades at school while maintaining an online club? Oh and add in time to chill with my family in there.
Well the first thing you can do is look at a typical day for me after school:
3:40 - 4:00 --- get home and relax (eat and YouTube)
4:00 - 5:00 --- study, do homework, practice drama pieces and lines
5:00 - 5:30 --- extra study time or YouTube
5:30 / 6:00 --- log on SSO
7:00 (depending on events) --- log off and spend time with family
8:00 - log on again
8:30 --- whatever
I mean it depends on the day but you get the picture. Do homework and things first and always put irl first. E.g. I have to sometimes cancel meetings because of unknown kayaking training. If you do this you will enjoy your time online more and won't feel as if it is taking over your life!
People have been waiting for it for ages, there have been many Instagram posts screaming about it, Jaharla is finally here! I must admit, I wasn't one of the people screaming as I don't tend to buy tack that often since I just stick to the different colour sets that I currently have. No, I was way more excited for the quests as all of my friends have reaches level 20 and I'm so close - yet so far. To start these quests you must have helped Mandy find her step sister and then all you have to do is talk to Julie!
Spoiler warning: this may contain spoilers about the most recent update of Star Stable
Oh of course, Jaharla I knew what that was I just... forgot (not). Anyway it sounds interesting and I've been ill all day and I can't sleep anymore, so why not. Race you there!
How lucky, the bus is here already. I better run to get on it else I'll miss it.
Nice to see you Mandy! It's awesome to see that you're getting into riding. I think Julie would love to spend more time with you if you joined the Bobcats. I think it's great that you think it's time you got yourself tack, it means you must have improved so much since we last met!
Yay, let's go. Oh... Who's this...?
What happened? The birds stole your key. Well that's hard to fix (!). Which tree? The one by the ice cream parlor? Oh that's easy to sort.
Found the keys. Here they are. You'll give me the honor of opening the doors. Because I've never done that before (!). (This whole island seems incapable or too lazy to open their own doors and fetch their own things. Honestly, and most of them are adults.)
Nice, and you got me a thank you gift? I didn't actually do anything but thank you anyway!
Now it's time to look at the actually clothes in question!
The upper tack set is my favorite as I don't like the mix of colours in the second set. In the first set I love the colours and textures, I also like the gold emblem thing on the saddle. I'm not so keen on the bridle as it has random red patches, and I'd rather that the different colours were on the different 'straps'. On the second piece I love the colour s and pattern on the bridle and saddle. I like how it looks "formal casual". I also like the studding. I wish that the studding on the pad was smaller and I'm not a fan of the colour, but the overall texture and style is amazing! I also like the little horse in the corner.
I quite liked the shop but I wish they put a bit more in there to start off since it is meant to be the best tack in Jorvik. However, it was decent.
Also, Matilda and Games Master Ylva are finally back with the Star Stable Show!
I love the use of the stickers in this, but I will have to wait and see before I vote on the hat!
All in all, this was a decent update. Nothing too big but just enough quests and new things to keep us going. I really want new story quests though!
// Thank you very much to everyone who sent me well wishes. I'm feeling 100 times better and I should be almost back to normal by tomorrow!

I’ve had an amazing day! I haven’t done a lot on SSO (although I did sneak on for a bit) so I thought I’d do something similar to yesterday and just talk about my day.
I was woken up at the unruly hour of 8:20 by my sisters. However, after telling them not very politely to go away I managed to get another hours sleep before I delved into my stocking. It was the normal (but truly amazing) presents from Mum and Dad, or so i thought until I felt a prick in my hand. My parents had put a pineapple in my stocking!
After a big breakfast of cereal, coffee, grapefruits and those French things that I can’t spell. I then dressed before the rather stressful present opening! I am very thankful towards all of the people who got me something this Christmas! I love each and every thing so much. One of the things I got was a Control for the Apple TV. My sisters and I then played a car game with it, much laughter and fun game with that!
Another amazing present was 2000 star coins from my sisters. I put this onto my account today and with I brought a long wanted Andy. So welcome to my home stable Royaltorch aka Tora!
It’s finally feeling like Christmas. It took 2 days of Frosty Roses theme week, cold and tucked up reading a book (Eliza Rose) in front of the fire before I felt it! So have you been keeping up with the Star Stable advent calendar? Well here are the days and their gifts/ codes:
14th - Jumper (W1NT3RSW3ATER)
15th - Hat (W1NT3RH0H0HAT)
16th - digital wallpaper
17th - saddle pad (WINT3RP4D16)
18th - 20% off SSO merch
19th - saddle (W0WS4DDL3)
20th - digital wallpaper
It’s been a really good year so far with the SSO advent calendar: I feel the outfits are less ‘newby’ and I will actually wear them rather then mixing it with other clothing! It’s good that as the players fashion sense has changed, so has SSOs.
As I was tucked in front of the fire I saw a video from one of my favourite SSO YouTubers, Northena. I decided to watch through the video and I was amazed:
This theory makes so much sense! I think that this is awesome and I am getting so much inspiration from it to write a story. However, I think that your character isn’t quite a reincarnation. I think that your character is simply a descendent and has the powers ‘switched on’. I really like this idea as I think it explains a lot of things and isn’t that far fetched.
On the subject of the main story quests, have you seen the new loading page of Dark Core? It’s really cool and I hope it means new story quests soon! Some think tomorrow but I doubt it as I think they’d give us a sneak peak first. Almost certainly we’ll be saving Anne but I hop there is more training in there as well!
I’m a story writer and even over 2 and a half years ago I came up with the story behind my main account, Lisa Silentland.
I’d recently been reading a book (I can’t remember what) with a character called Lisa in and I’d been to Shetland, which is where the ‘Silentland’ part came from. Lisa was a young girl from Britain who was given the magic gift by her aunt to go to Moorland stable. She LOVED it and it was like MAGIC. Hence the name for my starter horse, Lovemagic.
She loved being around horses but was better at theory since the thought of being on the horse could sometimes scare her… However, most of the time she could put aside this fears and get along with the thing that she enjoyed - riding.
In many ways Lisa Silentland compares to me and my own life but on SSO she is very confident and I think looked up to by some? (This is what people have told me, I have no clue whether or not it’s true!) This doesn’t compare to real life so much (I’m confident in some situations and not so in others) but being able to come on and just be me can sometimes be a relief!
I was watching this little video when I got home on Friday. I have a cold coming on and my throat is burning so I need to get to bed. But this really cheered me up! I am starting to do my dailies in game since I always seem to be low on Jorvik Shillings, his is actually a very good idea since it is something useful that I can do while talking to the club.
I thought that I want some of the bugs in game! Like the one where the horses was facing up and the rider was between the legs, or the one when everything had no colour. I just think that they are really cool variations to the game.
Just a quick reminder to players, please to not purposely exploit any bugs. Sometimes it happens by accident, for example I was taking photos of Epona before it came out from the GED site and I literally fell in Epona. I just called for a pick up and contacted support explaining. But the people lag in, find a bug to go fast, it isn’t okay and can disrupt others game experience..
Today I was out climbing so it was just a quick glance of the update on the news page. It was my first time climbing and I have my first blister! (I am proud of it, okay?) Today we welcomed 3 new horses to Jorvik and some new clothes to the mall.
Out of these three, my favourite is the bay Lipizzan as that is my favourite breed and I really like the softer colours. I am not a fan of the block colour horses but the white fades nicely into grey around the nose and feet and on the black it fades into brown. This gives the horses a less cartoon look. I really like the Sports Horse’s mane as it is a mix of shades so the white almost looks like it is glowing! The normal complaint is the muscles. Look at horses in real life, they do not look like that! This is worst on the lighter Sports.
I really did like the clothes! I can see that if you buy them all (plus a brown beanie) you could have any top (although not the brown trousers with the brown top) with any pair of hat and pants! I really and tempted to do that as I love the trouser design and the design of the pink and blue tops. It is just so detailed and such a normal thing to wear.
The final thing that happened with Wednesday update was the brand new Star Stable News, hosted by GM Ylva. I enjoyed the way that it was set out like a proper news report, but if you read the bottom you’ll see that nothing on Jorvik can be too serious!
Happy 5th of November! It’s fireworks night and I’ve hardly been on SSO today as I’ve been, well doing fireworks. The night started with a nice hot fire and burning this year’s pumpkin.
Then it was time to put on my snugly coat and hat before taking my camera outside to take photos of the fireworks! We only had about 3 that went wrong I think? Also there was just a small competition with our neighbors as we both were firing sparks into the sky! Well here are our fireworks from this year?
I wish that SSO celebrated fireworks night but it is only something done in the UK to celebrate the capture of Guy Fawkes who tried to blow up the houses of parliament. I love the SSO fireworks, but I love them in IRL even more. I’m sorry that this isn’t SSO but I hope it was interesting anyway.
Do you celebrate fireworks night?
Have you seen the brand new products in the Star Stable shop? I love the pillows so much, I would love one in my room as for me it would reflect sso but for everyone else it would just be a beautiful pillow. I also like the shirts, but what I really want is the grey hoodie. It’s the kind of thing I’d wear but it would remind me of my favorite game. Ahhh I think I’ll just have to wait for Christmas and write it on my list to Santa!
Talking about Christmas, I saw a beautiful Jorvik writing set, and since my sister has started writing Star Stable fanfics (I’m proud okay) I want to get her something to write them in (typing isn’t her thing, she hand writes). I think it would be really cute and suit her perfectly. The only thing is it would cost about £19 with postage, which might be considered too much. I will have to work very hard to earn that amount!
Welcome to my little space on the large internet where I can share my thoughts, views and fanfics! I am you 'normal' teenaged girl, who loves writing, gaming and horses. I've played Star Stable online since 2nd June 2014 and I am currently a level 20 player on Cupcake Valley where I hang about with Frosty Roses and my 18 pixel horses!
