A Tribute To NeoPets
Well, the other day I looked up my user info and was surprised, to say the
least, that it had that lovely little golden Lupe telling me I'd been playing
a year. Really? I thought. Has it been that long already? But
then I thought back and thought, well, NeoPets has changed a lot since I've
come here. I guess I really have been playing for a year! Well, actually a little
over a year, as I deleted my first account...sob sob!
The changes were subtle, an addition here and there. The Advent Calendar coming
out in December, soon after I started playing. I really liked the Advent Calendar,
and I bet everyone is looking forward to it opening again. I prefer the Advent
Calendar to the Tombola, because the Tombola doesn't give you so much of a tingle
of anticipation, Christmas joy in your heart. The Tombola is all year round,
the Advent Calendar is a seasonal thing.
The Battledome was a big change, and one that almost everybody looked forward
to. Suddenly those rocks that you could pick up around the site had a use, and
they skyrocketed in price. Before the BD, they averaged 500 NP apiece. After
the BD's debut, they became about 4,000 NP each.
The Tatsu became the Eyrie, and the Fuzio was turned into the Kyrii. Seeing
as I had neither of these pets, it didn't worry me too much. But I did get a
little worried when they changed the Jubjub, as at the time I had one of those.
But mostly, the pet changes have been for the best.
The NeoHomes were another big step for NeoPets. My personal NeoHome is on Faerie
Lane, Faerieland. I am building mine out of chocolate, but you can build them
in lots of different designs. You can choose carpeting, lighting, heating, security
and other things. The NeoHomes are very fun are going to get better.
There was the Tyrannian invasion, the Coltzan's murder mystery, and the earthquake
that smashed up the Ice Caves. These are just a few of the several events that
have taken part in the other worlds. Neopia Central is not the only place in
NeoPets where you can have a blast!
A LOT of new items have been introduced to NeoPets, and a lot have been changed
as well. When I first started playing, the Rainbow Paintbrush was about the
rarest item you could hope to possess, and you were considered rich if you had
anything over 20,000 NP. Then the Faerie Paint Brush came out and was all of
a sudden the hottest new thing. Rainbow Paint Brushes pretty much halved in
price due to lack of demand.
NeoPets has changed a lot--now it is bigger and better, and a little wiser.
I hope NeoPets will continue to grow and change, and add new things. See ya,
I'm off to play some games with my pet.
