Quote of the Week

"We will strive to build our home anew. The coming generations will be blessed with riches aplenty, and they will forever remember who made that life for them. Never again shall the curses of the surface dwellers trouble us... because we shall make the Kingdom of Maraqua bigger, grander, and safer than ever before."

Budget Battledoming

I've been fighting in the Battledome since I joined the site. Almost every day, I've fought at least once or twice. Back then, I had no idea where to turn to for advice, and was easily defeated in my fights. In order for that not to happen to you, a new Battledomer, I have decided to make a guide for making a good (yet cheap) set. As of the time this is written, the following weapons are what I strongly recommend to fill out that...

Salvaging Your SDB

Soon your safety deposit box will be in the thousands, and you'll be living in a clutter without knowing why certain items are in there, or why you even felt the need to keep those items for safe keeping in the first place.

"Paintbrush Palaver" by georgia7000_8_8_8

"Saving the Wheels" by bluerang1
Cheikz was the baby of the family, seen by others as a little kid. He wanted to take that tag off. By saving the Wheels of Neopia, he'd be recognised, honoured and respected by the whole of Neopia. It seemed like quite a task, but he and his sisters have done some pretty...
