1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

    Between the fabric of the universe lies a kingdom. And within that kingdom, a wondrous device, created by the king of Fairies himself.

    The Oculibrum.

    It holds the power to grant wishes. Anything you can dream, may be.

    But surely even such devices have limits.

    All fae of Seelie and Unseelie must hail to their truest monarch: the Grand Malvolomaster. He resides in a land built between dimensions. But Arkytrope is no benevolent ruler. Nor is he cruel. Exactly.

    Arkytrope may not be mad. But he'd never say as much. He prefers to leave his subjects to wonder, spending long days locked away inside his chambers watching the universe through his many two-ended mirrors. He has seen a million potential outcomes on a billion alternate worlds, and each increases his bizarre ambitions. By hand he crafted the Oculibrum, and by whim, it seems, he masters his people. His is the language of jests and riddles, of random fancies and biting philosophies. Host a war meeting? Boring! Everyone is dismissed for lunch. Oh, your queen is dead? Our deepest condolences...have a beetle. I killed it this morning. Good source of protein. Rarely does he finish a thought, at least in a way one might understand.

    Yet for his shortcomings, he is a brilliant, if overbearing father, and his many daughters adore him. They say the death of his queen is what shattered him. But of this he speaks little. Patient is the hunter who catches his quarry....

    ...Especially when that quarry has drawn fresh blood. Or kidnapped one's princess.
