Quote of the Week


Superstition. Many Neopians have it; many more disregard it with a laugh and a wave while secretly touching the four leaf clover in their pocket. But the truth is that all Neopians have their own little superstition...


Biscuit Brigade



In the Northwest corner sits your brother Skarl with his toy box full of little mechanical troops, which will be attacking your castle full of cookies, which is in the southeast corner. Between these two areas you will place towers, blocks, and decoys to keep Skarl's troops from stealing your cookies.

Double Painting

I'm not kidding; he does that sometimes. Well, he says he does. I know he likes sarcasm, though, so maybe it was all a lie...

"The Trickster" by taz_brandy
Every morning, I'd walk my spotted Xweetok self to the Ice Scratch Card Kiosk. With my head held high, I bought a card. Now, I remember that card. It was a Faerie's Fortune.
