Quote of the Week

With prices the way they are (10 NP for an apple that's already bitten?), times are tough; even Nigel the Chia is considering downgrading to a Red Bike. So thank your lucky Novas that you have a Neohome to go to, instead of having to live in the Forest or Mountains and having to Smile Sweetly at everyone you meet.

Gnorbu Care

First of all, please note that Gnorbus do not have hooves. They have adorable, wittle stubby- Tlizl: Stop it! That's so... undignified! Fine. They are cute, though. Where were we... Ah, yes. The legs have only a short, soft layer of fur. Too short to comb; shampooing followed by brushing with a Blue Gnorbu Brush will do. Those legs may look a bit pudgy, but they harbor the huge muscles that allow Gnorbus to outrun predators easily. Be especially careful to brush where leg meets body under the stomach, as tangles have a tendency to develop...

Advanced Key Quest

Lesson number one: Your starting home matters. Lesson number two: Faerieland is often not the best starting home. Surprised? Read more. First of all, consider the fact that your starting home is not simply the place where you begin playing the game. Your starting home is where you will return every time an opponent puts you in a catapult, Sophie the Swamp Witch gets bored, or King Skarl has a temper tantrum (and we all know how often that happens). This can lead to four or five trips back to your starting home in a good game...

Celebrating Sloth

I'm going to show you that Sloth Appreciation Day is the best day on the calendar. First, Sloth is a very nice man. If you celebrate his holiday, he will spare you when picking who to vaporize in his yearly visits to Neopia. You can run away happily while the other disobeying Neopians have to pay the price. To prove his niceness, look at how many adorable Grundos he made so the public could enjoy their cute faces. If that's not nice, then I don't know what is...

Before the evil Sloth decided to pay me a visit, life was perfect. But after, everything changed. He'd hurt me, but I had done everything in my power to get revenge. But I'd better start at the beginning. "Limeras!" my owner Rainy called up the stairs. "Come on! Let's go for a walk..."

"The Merry Adventures of a Christmas Lupe" by thorandsifforever
McClaws sought to refill his glass of Neggnog. Alas, the only shoppe that had any was the antique shoppe, charging several thousand for the once abundant drink, claiming that now it was a retired rarity. This was far too much for the Christmas Lupe, who had...

"Mutant Kindergartener?" by kittytamer99
Darrel, however, had not ignored the Tale of Woe. He had studied it intensively, even as a kindergartener, and even as a kindergartener, he was feeling very nervous about going to a school called Meepit Oaks. In fact, he was very nervous about going to any...
