How to Impress King Hagan with Your Knowledge
You all may know the familiar King Hagan sitting in his throne room. All he asks
is a bit of knowledge for you to come into his throne room. After all, the king
of Brightvale learns something new every day from the Neopets that look uneducated,
but are intelligent in the inside. Are you up to the challenge? If King Hagan
agrees that what you said was intelligent, you will be rewarded with a heavy book.
Thoughtful of him, eh? He may give you a few neopoints if he feels sorry for you
Now, before you attempt to impress King Hagan with your knowledge, you must
be prepared. It will not be a pretty scene if you are not prepared. There are
a few things you must have with you when you enter Brightvale Castle. Have your
heavy book in one of your paws. When you enter Brightvale Castle, don’t you
even think about frowning! Why do you think Brightvale was named Brightvale?
Everybody in Brightvale is intelligent and happy. For step-to-step instructions,
Step One: Looks
King Hagan would absolutely not permit you into his marvellous throne room
if you were dressed in ragtag clothes! Bring your pet to the Beauty Parlour
to buy a few grooming products. After that, stop by the Clothing Shop to pick
up a few “smart” clothes. King Hagan loves it when you dress in green and gold.
He considers those colours knowledgeable. He dislikes makeup though. Avoid them,
unless you’d like to be thrown out of the castle and into the dirt (which is
also not too kind to your new clothes that you bought for the occasion). Try
not to look hideous. A few examples of this is having your pet painted Darigan
or Mutant. A few colours may appeal to King Hagan, such as; Green, Yellow, Gold
Step Two: Knowledge
King Hagan would certainly kick you out of the castle if you went up to him
and simply said “Jelly World does not exist” because everybody knows Jelly World
doesn’t exist! Visit one of the Book Shops in either Neopia Central or Faerie
City to get a few new books for your pet. Make sure that they are actually full
of information! Avoid comic books and picture books. To make this short, avoid
books that are actually enjoyable. I suggest history books. King Hagan just
adores history about anything. If you have money to spare and much patience,
I suggest going down to Brightvale Books to pick up a few books. Most of them
actually teach you something.
Step Three: Entrance
How would you feel if someone claims that they are extremely smart and then
they just crawl into your throne room! King Hagan would simply lecture you about
the importance of an entrance! He will not permit you to Brightvale for many,
many months of ridicule! To avoid this, simply remember what I am going to tell
you. Straight back, good posture and paws at your side. Do not, I repeat, do
not trip! King Hagan will see you unworthy of his time and order his guards
to throw you out of the castle! Do not strut, either. King Hagan will think
that you think you are better than him. You will, again, be thrown out of the
Step Four: Presentation
Tell King Hagan thank you for taking time out of his busy lifestyle to listen
to you. Compliment him, so that when he gets angry at you, he’ll remember the
compliment and go a bit easy on you. At this point, you should take out your
very heavy book. Turn to your page that you will read out of. Make sure the
corner of the page is not folded. King Hagan gets very angry when he sees that.
He will run at you yelling, “WHAT DID YOU DO TO THAT BOOK? YOU COME BACK HERE,
YOU UNGRATEFUL NEOPET!” At this point, your best chance of survival is to run.
Also, make sure that you do not drop the book. The castle floors are very fragile.
If you drop your book, the floors will break. Keep a firm grip on the book unless
you’d like to discover how strong King Hagan really is. He is very protective
about his castle. Make sure you do not stutter when you read out of your book.
King Hagan dislikes one who stutters. For your safety and mine, do not stutter.
Try not to be too cheery. If you are too cheery, King Hagan thinks that you
are making fun of him. If you are grim, King Hagan will get extremely angry.
He thinks that letting you into his throne room is a marvellous opportunity.
Perhaps bring a book with you and present it to King Hagan before you speak.
He will be in a wonderful mood. Try not to move much. Sit in a chair and try
not to look at the book much. Do not let King Hagan under the impression that
you’ve memorized it. Look at the book every five seconds or so.
Step Five: Afterwards
Now, after you’ve concluded your presentation, make sure to say thank you
to King Hagan for taking time from his busy job as king of Brightvale to listen
to you again. He will be happier and perhaps be extremely happy when you come
back tomorrow. You’re not coming back tomorrow? You should! King Hagan will
remember you and give you better grades, which means better prizes! Make sure
to visit every single day. If you miss just one day, King Hagan will forget
you (he has a very bad memory if it doesn’t involve knowledge) and will not
let you in his throne room. The next day, follow all the steps and remember
to compliment him before and after your presentation.
Once you’ve visited King Hagan for a month or so, you may have three or four
new books to add to your library. Maybe a few spare neopoints. Once you get
more experienced, you will get more prizes. If you are not the Neopet that reads
in their spare time, I advise you to sell all the books. I suggest getting King
Hagan very happy and asking him to sign your book. If you sell that autographed
book, you’ll get a very big pile of neopoints! Present King Hagan with a gift
before you ask him to autograph your book, and he might even add a small greeting!
What does that mean, you ask? Bigger piles of neopoints!
