Quote of the Week


This was the perfect place for someone like me to stay!! Ghosts, mummies, vampires, living trees, witches and more evil than you could ever imagine... It had everything!


Neo-Niceness



There is some confusion as to how to be nice on Neo. There are people who honestly try, but aren't sure what they should do. At the same time, there are people who try to use 'kind' acts to gain acknowledgement, compliments, and even items. That's not niceness in the least, but it can get confusing at times. That's why I thought I would make this simple guide...

Great Desert Race



The Great Desert Race looks at first glance to be a simple board game, but looks can be deceiving.

The task, year after year, was to fold one hundred paper Quintilcs and display them in the courtyard of the Lunar Temple.
