Refusing, Denying, Rejecting: Same Thing!
NEOPIA CENTRAL - Before I get on with things, I would like to talk about some
things that might concern some of you.
last article, I talked about three different kinds of rejects. They
were food rejects, game rejects, and toy rejects. For all those Neopian players
out there who have not read my last article and are thinking that I am a total
nutcase for saying that there were such things (though you can relate food rejects
to gross foods, games that didnít quite work out right, and toys with weird
body parts), I am NOT talking about that sort of thing. What I mean is when
you give something to your pet and they donít take it and turn it down.
Example: Food rejects. You buy some food and your pet refuses to eat
Now that thatís straightened out, I shall begin.
There are, yet, three more rejects that have been brought forth by some of
the Neopian players. Therefore, I am writing a follow-up explaining them.
Iíll start off with:
PROBLEM: BOOK REJECTS
Picture this. You are a book fanatic and you want to let your Neopets experience
the same great feeling of reading a book and also to get them educated, much
like a lot of parents do to try to encourage their children to read. You also
want to win the book reading contest and show off that super cool trophy in
your trophy cabinet. You go to the book store and spend hundreds and hundreds
of Neopoints on books that you think might interest your pet. You then go home
and take the first book out of your inventory and give it to your pet (by coincidence,
theyíre all the same :P). But then, your pet gives it back to you and says,
"That is SUCH a boring book!" Well, what should you do?
Just give the book to one of your different pets and see if they read it. If
they all refuse (and it must have been a really bad book!), sell it and buy
a different one, or you can play some of the games that can raise your petís
intelligence, like Poogle Solitaire and Cliffhanger. As well, if you go to Coltzanís
Shrine at the right time, your active pet could gain a point of intelligence.
PROBLEM: PETPET REJECTS
You have finally earned enough money to buy that cute little, take for example,
Ramosan, that caught your eye the other day while going to the Petpet shop.
He/She is worth 15,000 NP at the Shop Wizard and 59,921 NP at the Rock Pool.
After months and months of playing games for hours on end, you can at last go
to the PetPet shop and buy one. When you go home, practically beaming with happiness
and joy that you bought something that would make your pet twitter with excitement,
you show your Neopet the Petpet, expecting its eyes to go all round and glowing.
But oh my! Your Neopet scrunches up its face with its nose wrinkled up like
something that stunk badly, as if there were a pair of three week old gym socks
that were left unwashed after an hour playing a sweaty game Deckball.
Now, here comes the fun part!
For one million Neopoints, would you:
a. Force your pet to take the Petpet (most unlikely)
b. Get all embarrassed and run away
c. All of the above
d. None of the above
If you guessed... umm... OK, I admit that I donít really have an answer, but
what you should do, and probably already have done, is SELL IT! Another thing
you can do is set them free! Let them go back to their wild habitat! (Keep the
Flouds away from carrot patches, though!) OK, OK, so you canít do that, but
why not be generous and donate the Petpet at the Money Tree? I bet that lucky
person (probably out of thousands and thousands of other people who are trying
to get something) would be delighted to find a lovely little Petpet to bring
home to their pets : ). Hey, what else can I say? Now to Potion Rejects.
PROBLEM: POTION REJECTS
You just got back from the Battledome and your pet is now all battered and
beat up by some hairy tough guy (not to mention a few opponents ; ). You go
and buy a ton of, lets just say, Potion I, the cheapest thing you can afford
because youíre practically broke. When you are FINALLY finished buying from
the Shop Wizard (which takes like FOREVER trying to get a low price) you go
to heal your pet but then... everyone say it together: YOUR PET REJECTS!!! (You
knew that was coming, didnít you?).
There are many places in which you can heal your pet. One of the most popular
ones is the Healing Springs, located in Faerieland. But the Healing Spring isnít
very reliable. One, being that you can only visit it once every hour, and two,
being that you might just get healed three Hit Points, or not enough to get
your pet(s) fully healed. To name a few other places you can heal your pet,
they are listed below:
1. You can go to Coltzanís Shrine (if youíre at it the right time)
2. Play Wheel of Excitement, but be warned, because this is a gambling
game, and not only do you have to spend 100 NP, but chances are that you might
not get healed, but even get attacked by the Lava Ghoul or something that would
make your pet feel worse : (
3. There are also certain Random Events that happen over the site while
you are exploring. Random Events like the Ghost Lupe visiting you and healing
So there you have it! If you think about it really hard, you would see that
there are many kinds of rejects in the world of Neopia, and Neopet personality
plays a BIG part in the ways of life in this virtual reality. Who would have
thought that your pet could say no to things? Like us humans, Neopets have their
own taste on the good things, and the bad things.
I hope this article brought something to mind to all of you Neopian players,
and I guess there is still a lot to learn about the wide and wonderful Neopia.
: ) Bye for now!
For all of those people who Neomailed me for suggestions and things that I left
out in my last article, I would like to say thank you, because this article wouldnít
be here without you. Enjoy your little gift from me to you! : )
