The new Guilds are taking over. We all know it, but there is nothing we can
do about it. NeoPets was first created to be a whole community of pet lovers,
where the players feed, groom and play with their pets, but now, it is far from
that. People are training their pets to fight, hitting it big on the stock exchange,
and generally creating a rich empire within a website. This is where the Guilds
Back last year, when Guilds first came out, there was about five of them, each
with a few thousand members, and nothing really happened between them. People
read the lists of people who were in the guild, chose one with a good username,
talked for a bit and then lost touch. But at the beginning of last summer, Neopia
changed. Neopets was no longer a small community of pet lovers.You soon found
out that a few more people played the site than you thought, a few million more,
The Neopets went through a series of changes: Mystery Island, changes in the
maps and more shops and games opening. Soon you found yourself battling for
Neopia against Dr. Sloth, and then the two week saga seemed to be over as soon
as it had started. You feel as if it had all been for nothing.
Then soon after, well a few months after, came the member-made Guilds. This
sudden creation sprung from nowhere without warning, and if you hadn't logged
on within a certain few days you may not have known. This happened to me, and
I found out when I clicked on someone's profile and it told me that they were
a 'dragon whipper" of the Organ Players Guild!
Then came the hard bit: joining or making a Guild. I decided to make a Guild,
because I had just made major profits on The Stock Exchange at the time. This
might not have been the best option. I love owning a Guild now, but it is a
To even think of owning a Guild, you need to go on Neopets a minimum of once
every two days, and you need money to support it. Here is the step-by-step guide
to creating a guild: First, think of a theme. Let's base this on my Guild, then.
Say you chose a Battledome Guild like I did. What will it do? Will it be an
army? Will it be a training group (like I chose)? It's up to you. Next, think
of a good name, and make it a bit better than The Animal Guild, or The Football
Then, you should create a logo. A good but simple logo normally does the trick
of getting some attention.Next, you need to get your members. First, if you
have any neofriends on the site, invite them to be your Council, if you know
they are trustworthy. A tip: never set out to find a nice rich shop, and ask
the owner whether he or she wants to become your treasurer. You get a grizzly
reply. Also, you should ADVERTISE. All big things advertise you know! Next,
create inner Guild offers and ideas, such as a Guild Library or Food Store.
Another good idea is to secure your Guild with an alliance or two. After all,
you could have a traitor on your team! Also, train the Guild's pets. Sometimes
arguments become fierce between Guilds, and it might need to be decided in the
This is all I will write now, because my fingers are beginning to hurt. If
you want to join my Guild (and you know you do) neomail me, or go to http://www.neopets.com/guilds/guild.phtml?oid=the_giovanni.
See you later...
