The Faeries' Ruin
Xandra turns Neopia's faeries to stone, kills Hubrid Nox, and brings Faerieland crashing down, but then is outmanoeuvred by the courage and cunning of Hanso and Brynn.
Key Quest Quitters
We've all been there... about to win a Key Quest match when your opponent suddenly vanishes! Thankfully, the release of Key Quest's rating system discourages chronic quitting.
NC Mall 13 Days of Trick or Treat Event
Some combinations tend to go together: peanut butter and jelly, chilli and cheese, tricks and treats... except when those tricks keep Neopians from getting every treat.
Tarla's Tour of Mystery
Let me get this straight - I spent countless hours feverishly clicking around Neopia in search of Tarla, and all I got was a background worth 30,000 NP?!? *sigh*
Uni Clothing Shopkeeper Redraw
Apparently, many Neopians were under the impression that the Unis Clothing Shopkeeper was a male Uni. Much to their surprise, "he" turned out to actually be a she.
Bountiful Bow Mystery Capsule
For those who simply can't get enough bows, this is the Mystery Capsule for you! It also offers access to a trio of bow-nus items unavailable anywhere else!
Holiday Gift Box Mystery Capsule
One of this Mystery Capsule's offerings is the Super Gift Box, which introduced the ability to give someone four items in a single gift box. Not too shabby!
NC Mall 3rd Birthday Mystery Capsule
Released in celebration of the NC Mall's 3rd birthday, this Mystery Capsule not only offered an opportunity to get retired Neocash items, but Limited Edition Bonus Items, too!
Spooky Moon Halloween Mystery Capsule
This Mystery Capsule offered a wide range of mostly Halloween-themed delights, including the Spooky Moon trinket, available exclusively here as a Bonus Item.
Beautiful Desert Oasis Background
Those who completed Kari's quest to help her find an ideal vacation spot were rewarded with this background, a reminder of the holiday hideaway's discovery.
Krawk Island Silhouette Background
Oh sure, it may look peaceful and relaxing, but beware... there be pirates lurkin' in them shadows!
Malicious Dark Faeries Background
Uh oh! It seems like there's trouble in the air. Then again, maybe that's your style...
Rocky Ocean Background
Surf's up! The tide is coming in and the waves are huge. As tempting as going out for a swim may be, perhaps you should stay where it's safe for now...
What's not to love about this tasteful Draik confection? Waffle textured wings and ears, a slather of chocolate syrup, and a topping of whipped cream and a cherry... yum!
Combining a neon green overlay with wings that feature soft pastel colours and speckles on a pale background, this fashion-forward style takes chances and makes them work.
Perhaps the most colourful of all mutant styles (only mutant Kaus, Pteris, or Peophins can really argue the claim), this look's quite an eyeful... even if you've got three eyes!
Both of the Techo's Royal Paint Brush styles feature an island-inspired look that's respectably regal and yet festively fun in a tiki sort of way.
Its striking expression may not suit all Neopians' tastes, but those who elect to make a Farnswap their Petpet are quickly won over by their warmth and enthusiasm.
Many seeking this Petpet who couldn't afford one due to its rarity of 90 got a nice surprise when Gold Maukets were included as prizes in this year's Games Master Challenge.
Neopians have certainly shown that they dig this adorable Geraptiku Petpet that loves to burrow since it was released during the first month of Year 12.
How could anyone visit Shenkuu's Fanciful Fauna Petpet Shop and not instantly be taken by the inquisitive nature of this charming Petpet?
Faerie Cloud Racer Collectors Background
This background places your Neopet at the controls of their very own Faerie Cloud Racer! Billowing smoke trail sold separately (okay, not really).
Jeran Collectors Sword
Fashioned from the finest steel in Meridell and adorned with markings that could only be the work of a true master, this sword is the choice of heroes and villains alike.
Princess Amira Collectors Arm Cuffs
Some may find these jewel-encrusted cuffs a little too fabulous for everyday use, but who would expect anything less of items that come from Princess Amira's personal vault?
Princess Lunara Collectors Parasol
Originally featured in The Search for Princess Lunara, this carefully crafted parasol is ideal for shading its owner from harsh rays when it's sunny outside.
Visitors to Bart's Apple Bobbing Tank found themselves comparing apples to oranges upon taking a closer look at this less than convincing citrus substitute.
Unlike the Uni for which it's named, this ferocious Battledome weapon's appearance is just as menacing when the sun is out as it is after dark.
This foreground item allowed Neopian nature lovers to give their Neopet's presentation an added sense of depth.
Zombie Petpet Paint Brush
Just what every Neopet wants - to transform their Petpet into a rotting, fly-ridden, wild-eyed drone that staggers about slowly while emitting a low groan. Lovely!
This Ogrin ship captain was seen ordering a refreshment in the third comic, during the part where Hanso was recounting his sale of the artefact to Hubrid Nox.
The Gelert leader of The Thieves' Guild made an appearance in the plot's seventh comic, while Hanso (a fellow guild member) and Brynn were recounting their shared past.
In The Faeries' Ruin, King Altador bravely led the team protecting Brynn and Hanso from legions of shadow wraiths as they tried to reverse the spell that froze the faeries.
Having witnessed Hanso stealing from the faeries after they were frozen, King Jazan was Hanso's most outspoken critic during the plot (at least, until he saved Neopia from Xandra).
Neopians out on a spooky shopping spree could find themselves the lucky recipient of this avatar...
Festival of Neggs Y12 - Quester
If you earned this avatar, then you must've been awfully diligent about fulfilling Kari the Negg Faerie's quests during the Festival of Neggs. Well done!
Stamp Collector - The Battledome
Being a stamp collector isn't cheap. Neither is being a Battledomer. Therefore, is it any surprise what a page filled with Battledome-themed stamps will run you?
Despite numerous hints in the Editorial, Neopians have yet to figure out how to find this avatar. Here's wishing it doesn't take as long as the Bonju avatar did...
One can't help but admire the ornate detail of this year's Bori wearables, which were faithfully created in the fashion of a Bori Flower Girl and Bori Miner.
If you've ever wanted to dress your Hissi as a glamourous pop star or a swashbuckling swordsman, then this year's Hissi Day was quite an event for you!
Those awaiting this year's Jetsam wearables were not let down by the Jetsam Lunch Lady outfit and Witch Doctor costume's debut, which arrived at a perfect time for Halloween.
This year's Kacheek wearables featured a postman's outfit and a lovely pink night ensemble, each with a pair of accessories that really round out the look.
Castle Nox - Corridor of Chance Access
Hubrid Nox may be gone, but the transfabulating powers of his Corridor of Chance live on! Who knows what wearable (and, possibly, bonus effect) your Neopet will get?
The Mystery Capsule Quest for Knowledge
Collectors gathered Mystery Capsules from some of the world's wisest Neopians to assemble an impressive array of handsome wearable items.
How they manage to squeeze those magnificent backgrounds, foregrounds, wearable clothing items, etc. into those tiny little Neggs, we'll never know...
The first Stocking Stufftacular was so popular that the NC Mall brought it back for another engagement, offering another round of holiday-themed surprises.
Neopia's most exciting annual sporting returned for its fifth year, adding a new team from Moltara and bringing back the Staff Tournament, which was won by Twitterpate.
Along with the usual set of scores to beat by AAA, Abigail, and Lulu, plus weekly Double Dares, this year's event also had a Staff Tournament, which was won by Jimmy James.
Festival of Neggs
In addition to awarding daily prizes, this event also offered eight quests - four presented as riddles, and four requiring players to run errands for Kari, the Negg Faerie.
Save the Wheels
This past summer, The Neopian Conservation Society raised billions of Neopoints to preserve and restore Neopia's wheels, offering contributors prizes based on their donations.

Dr. Sloth: I tried everything - writing letters, signing petitions, picketing. Despite my very best efforts, there's still no Diet Achyfi! I tell ya, doc. I feel so helpless...

mr.coconut [To Hissi]: GOOD NIGHT!
Caption Contest 1138
Apparently chivalry isn't dead in Neopia. Artistic ability, on the other hand... well, let's just say it's taking a break.
Caption Contest 1161
The Chomby felt so out of place at this gathering. After all, he was the only one... in formal attire.
Icy Blue Eyes
This past year, the option to adorn your Neopet with aqua blue contacts was rather popular with many customisers... just not those with Aishas and Chias, however.
Lavender Faerietale Dress
Understandably, this ornate dress was a favourite among those who were looking for something that was delicate, yet still capable of turning heads.
Stormy Night Background
Ahh, the urge to go out in the rain and stomp every puddle in sight. With this background, your Neopet can stay out in the rain as long as they like and not even get sick!
Valentine Tree of Lights
Among those who decided to customise their Neopets for Valentine's Day, few wearables were more desirable than this beautiful, flower-filled foreground.
Hannah and the Kreludor Caves
Guide Hannah through the caves of Kreludor collecting gems and keys, but keep an eye on your oxygen and fuel (plus watch out for Dr. Sloth's Kreludan Defenders, too!).
Jumpin' Gem Heist
Help a Sandan named Solly use his basket to gather the gems from the evil Bori Miner's operation and carry on the good deeds begun by his owner.
Hordes of adorable Kookiths are overrunning Neopia; it's up to you to track them down and catch these omnipresent Petpets before it's too late!
Neopian Battlefield Legends
Relive some of the most legendary conflicts of Neopian history as you strategically select and arrange towers in an attempt to turn back invaders.
This style's rune-like aquamarine markings and steel blue base have made it a highly-desired look among far more Neopians than just those who live in Maraqua.
Those who've elected to paint their Neopet with the Relic Paint Brush have certainly set their decision in stone as to which brush is this year's best...
This see-through paint brush style is ideal for those who believe that, when it comes to their Neopets, it's what's on the inside that truly matters...
Sporting a stylishly simple woodgrain finish and flowering bud accents, this paint brush option has become quite popular among Neopia's nature lovers.
