Quote of the Week


If you were to spend the day at the pound chat and count up how many Draik/Krawk threads you see as opposed to Quiggles, the count would be something like: 56,789 to 2... This tells us that people are constantly trying to get rid of Draiks/Krawks, whereas the Quiggles are being hoarded.


Kookith Capturing



In Kookia, you must hover over the regular Kookiths with your mouse to capture them. Regular Kookiths include any Kookith that is not a ghost – they may be yellow, like most are, or a different color, which predominantly occurs in the latter levels of the game. Ghost Kookiths, on the other hand, are slightly different. To capture a Ghost Kookith, you must click on it. By capturing three of these elusive Kookiths in a single level, you unlock the bonus level, giving yourself chances to catch additional Kookiths and get more points during each round...

Fashion Capitals



You're probably wondering, "is there a place in Neopia that is remotely fashionable? Up to date? Hip? In vogue?"

"The Adventures of the Young Chia Detective" by anamya
Early in the morning, the Jam Palace is the best place to think about the mysteries I solve, because everyone is still sleeping and I can use the tables to put lots of papers and notes. I also have a spyglass (like Kentari's, I adore him!) and magical lenses I got once I visited the Coltzan Shrine in the Lost Desert, with my parents. For me, that was proof of the great wisdom of King Coltzan. When I got closer to the shrine (and I was just a baby Chia that time), he somehow knew lenses would be a great prize for a future detective...

"The Evil Ring" by blue_magic
Peering through more brambles, she gasped as she saw who had been speaking. Tally quickly put her paw around Tadri and against her mouth, but the Dark Faerie had already heard her. Tadri froze. Why couldn't Blue have painted me Camouflage? she thought in dismay. The Dark Faerie, who was a fair distance away, yelled, "Come out of there immediately or I'll make you do it myself!" Tadri looked to Tally with a "What should we do?" face. Tally just shook her head and gave Tadri her "I-told-you-so" look. Tadri figured the consequences would...

"The Fountain Faerie Quest" by fyora123123
Nancy Normal Neopian stared at the random event in front of her, her jaw hanging open. She blinked. It was still there. She pinched herself. It was still there. She reached out, as though she could touch it. Her hand passed right through it, but that’s how random events are. Her active – and only – neopet stood beside her. Rosie77778888 (Rosie), her Xweetok, was new to Neopia and didn’t know what was going on. She didn’t know why it was so important. Nancy got random events all the time, so what was so special about this one?
