"Wow, are you a knight?" Risu asked excitedly.

Ob-Nox-ious Neohomes



Castle Nox is an inspiration to everyone on this Hallows Eve. It's the place to go, and many have spent hours inside, studying every aspect of those walls. What were they searching for? No one knows. Regardless, the interest can only mean one thing. It's time for a Neohome makeover. The first, completely original, aspect of the castle is its abundance of doors. No offence intended to Mr. Nox, but there are spookier doors than green, blue, and red. Try installing one of the various trapdoors first, to see what feels right. Steel has that 'cool' aspect...

10 Safety Precautions



You may think that going with your owner is dorky, but think of all the dangers lurking outside your Neohome at night. There are scary things out there. Trust me. If you still think it's dorky going with your owner, ask to go with friends. Note how I said "friends", not "a friend"; the more of you the better. Less likely something will happen to you. Go in groups of four or more just in case. I'd really recommend going with your owner, though; I mean it's much safer that way, and although maybe not as fun as going with your friends, it's still pretty fun...

Witchy Ways to Celebrate


During All Hallow's Eve, more popularly known as Halloween, cackling and wearing dark costumes is heartily encouraged. Witches, spell-casters, swamp hags, and magicians alike, rejoice: 'Tis the season to be spooky, and all of Neopia is celebrating the day when the ghouls, creeps and monsters come out to play. On the scariest night of the year, witches will feel right at home with the rest of Neopia. How exactly do those of a witchy persuasion celebrate this extraordinary event?

"Of Kitchens, Gypsies and Restless Ghosts" by ssjelitegirl
Life was quiet in the Meepit Oaks asylum that night. The doors were locked, the day staff had gone home and the night watch had gathered around the fireplace in the resting room, seeking comfort in each other's company in the middle of that big grim house. Most of the staff was relatively new in the asylum, considering that the house had been empty for years before the citizens of Neovia returned and life flowed back in that corner of the Haunted Woods. As it was, the Meepit Oaks...

"Shadows" by tj_wagner
You think I'm mad. You don't say it outright, but I see the truth flickering in your eyes like a candle. Behind your nervous smile, you roll around the bitter word on the tongue and wince at the taste. Still, you refuse to say you think I'm crazy. Sweet Fyora! I wish that I was. If only this was some sort of delusion manufactured in my own mind, because then I would be safe. Unfortunately, I fear I am entirely sane. This is why I've chosen to write these words. If something happens to me, at least...

"Vandebart Biggsby's Bedtime Story" by garbot
"You there! You seem like a sharp young fellow!" Vandebart Biggsby called out to the crowd wandering the Haunted Faire. "Try your luck at apple bobbing! I'll give you double the prizes if you're successful." A yellow Skeith, looking as witless as he did round, stopped and smirked at the elderly Gnorbu. "Too easy. Don't make me laugh, old man!" The Skeith mocked. His smug demeanor shattered with a wimpy yelp as a small, dizzy Korbat who was following close behind...
