Quote of the Week

NeoCash Item Trading



Now, the traditional board is called "Seeking/Trading". This is when a user creates a board with a list of the items they are seeking (as in their wishlist).

These lists are most often kept on petpages, for organizational purposes. Of course, to trade anything, you must...

Jumpin' Gem Heist



In this game, you play a Sandan that knocks over gems and collects them in its (bottomless) hat. You don't know what a mischievous Petpet like that could be up to with all those gems, but it doesn't seem to matter much, since it's so cute. And gems are shiny.

Joanie had been turned grape. Of course, her mother went crazy. At first, Joanie thought her mother was upset, but it was actually the exact opposite. "You look so adorable!" her mother squealed. Joanie never thought those words would come out of her rough and tough mother's mouth. "We need to get you some smaller clothes, don't we!" She grabbed Joanie's hand, something...

"The Zombie Called Brayns" by flameandthemeepits
When Sarah went out to buy more books, no-one expected her to come back with a zombie. "I'm hoooome!" she shouted as soon as she came in, dragging behind her an Aisha and a sack of books. She was pleased with her load: seven books and a zombie. Not what she'd expected- she was hoping she'd get three books! Her pets trudged down the stairs...
