The Missing Links: Lost Pages of Neopia: Part Two

by marlfox788

UNKNOWN - For those of you who read the last article, you saw many many unseen pages of Neopia. Due to an overwhelming amount of Neomails, along with many links included, I decided to make another article.

To start off with, you can look at the old Neopian Times Issues. I don't mean Neopian Times Issue 3, I mean the OLD issues. The articles and stories are not even comparable to the ones around now. It turns out that there are about 120 issues, not just around 50.

My last article also showed Neopians the pets that never made it. It turns out that that was a contest for a new Neopet, and the Shoyru won :). These pets were already around, but it was a mean April Fool's joke that The Neopets Staff played on us >:-[ These pets are even worse than the others.

Of course, there were many contests that Neopets ran (and still runs a good amount). There were contests for the new look of the Tatsu (take a guess at its name today), Gelert, Mynci, and Jetsam.

For those of you who remember the 'Crown Search', the Talking Parrot was part of that. The solution is here.

There were other searches and contests. One of which was used to create the Space Station! Ask Sloth was used to create some aspects of the Space Station(along with some rather amusing replies from Sloth himself!), and Decode the Runes was the beginning of the Space Station plot. See, that crazy old guy on Mystery Island had something to do with codestones :)

Well, many of us remember games such as Treasure Hunt, which was taken away, along with some other games we may not have realised left; Grundo's Gym and Chia Bingo, both of which still give out NP.

It would be very hard to leave this lost page out of The Neopian Times. The Tyrannian Volcano, where Magnus the Torch can be found. He is an actual Battledome Challenger, and you can still fight him. Chomshuri and I went to interview him, and came out a little burned, but got the interview (this is from memory; my notepad burned up in the extreme temperatures).

Marlfox788: Hello?

Magnus the Torch (MTT): Who goes there?

Marlfox: We're Tyrannian residents!

MTT: Then in that case, you may enter. I only talk to Tyrannian people.

Marlfox: Would you mind doing a small interview for The Neopian Times?

MTT: Why would people want to hear me out? All I do is breathe fire and burn things.

Marlfox: Well, you do live in a volcano...

MTT: Yes, I've lived here my whole life. I remember back when Kacheekers tournaments were held here, and when this place was safe for all Neopians to enter. Now the only people who come here have to get through me.

Marlfox: Unless they're from Tyrannia?

MTT: Yes.

Marlfox: Why are you so biased against other Neopians?

MTT: I'm not biased! I'm protecting them! This volcano is still active, if not more! The Monoceraptor used to hide within the magma. His disappearance has let the lava flow freely, so now it is more dangerous to come up here!

Marlfox: So, really, you're protecting them?!

MTT: Yes, of course. Those who resist must defeat me in a battle.

Marlfox: Well, thanks for your time. I guess you should go back to protecting Neopia.

MTT: Yes, please go. It looks like some more 'adventurers' are on the way to here.

Well, as you can see, Magnus the Torch is protecting the Neopians from the volcano. The area also used to hold games such as Kacheekers.

Chomshuri and I then went to the Haunted Woods, where we found the remains of an old shop. The Apothecary was the mushroom shop of Neopia. Unfortunately, it went out of business.

While searching through the rubble of Maraqua, Kabllii, my Kiko, and I found another site; and this one is still active. It's also a place where Magnus the Torch would never battle. The Maraqua Battledome. This Battledome is still active! So it appears that if the Battledome survived the Whirlpool, could people inside have survived? Are there really survivors from Maraqua?

We may not know for a long time. Feel free to Neomail me with any other pages. With more lost pages of Neopia, this is Marlfox788, signing off.
