Hurrah! The Price of Neopox Pizza is Down Again!

by 3curlyfries

OK, so maybe I should’ve chosen a less descriptive title. Anyway.... After about six months the price of Neopox Pizza is down to a respectable 49 NP, at the least. But why? I conducted an investigative quest. My mission? To find out, why was Neopox pizza 2000 NP in May, and only 49 NP now?

My first thought was: The Wheel of Excitement. Of course! More and more people are playing every day, and maybe the Skull isn’t giving them Neopox anymore. I went straight to the source--the Light Faerie at the Wheel of Excitement. I talked to her about the writing of this article and about the skull. Her response?

“The Dark Faerie is in charge of the sicknesses, but she’s not very computer orientated and of course the Wheel is run by electricity--contrary to popular belief. We currently have a jam--the Skull isn’t dishing out Neopox anymore--mostly D'achoo.”

I told her "Thank you" and left. Hmm, perhaps the Gelert who ran the hospital could help me.

“Yes, I’ve noticed the low prices of Neopox pizza these days,” she agreed.

“I think it’s wonderful. Since it’s happened, it’s sparked an interest in me. I think I shall write the NeoPets government and request that a 100 Neopoint limit should be put on all cures. Why don’t you speak to the Elephante who runs the Pharmacy, I’m sure she’ll be able to help you.”

“Ohh!” scowled the Elephante when I told her of my question. “On Neopox pizza we’re losing so much business, so our sales have dropped 97 %. But I’m very pleased with the number of NeoPets coming down with D'achoo. It's sent our Neopkins sales right up through the roof!” She tapped a box of Neopkins and I noticed their price--6400 NP.

I spoke to a shopkeeper in the Marketplace who specialises in cures. “We sell everything for under 100 NP,” she said, “including Neopkins, which are 100 NP as D'achoo is out of control nowadays. We’re selling Neopkins at are most expensive price, and Neopox Pizza at 30. I agree that it's odd, though.”

Hmm. Was Neopox done for good?

Then I spoke to a scientist who wishes to remain anonymous. He lives in Maraqua. He, too, had noticed this, but he had also noticed something I hadn’t. “I’ve formulated a theory about Resident NeoPet Illnesses, or RNPI, or Ren-Pi . About eight months ago, Neopox was out of control The Neopox pizza is the cure. The shop owners would’ve seen this and raised the cost of Neopox Pizza. But as more and more were cured of the Neopox, they didn’t need the pizza anymore and promptly discarded leftover slices or didn’t buy.”

“So what happened?” I inquired.

He shrugged. “Sales dropped, and a new Ren-Pi moved in. D'achoo, which means Neopkins prices are skyrocketing as more and more people clamour to get them.”

“Well, is it controlled by someone?”

He shrugged again. “I’d say the NeoPets Team. Of course, NeoPets aren’t getting sick with just D'achoo, but I believe if someone were to conduct a survey of sick NeoPets, that most of them have D'achoo over Neopox Of course, that's’ just my belief.”

I believe that this man's theory is true, that a new illness takes over every few months. So, my mission was complete. Why was Neopox Pizza 2000 NP in May and only 49 now? Because D'achoo took over. Perhaps in a few months you’ll be able to purchase Neopkins for 50 Neopoints--and see something like Neomonia take over. Better stock up on the curse and hope you can make some NPs out of it.
