The Petpet Awards Ceremony
You walk up the red-carpeted steps to a large brick building. A sign is hung
over your head. "5th Annual Petpet Awards Ceremony" it reads. You quickly rush
in to a large auditorium and take your seat among thousands of other Neopians
that have come to witness this spectacular event. A Kyrii steps up to a large
wooden podium and begins to speak.
Ladies and gentlemen. Please take your seats. Thank you for coming today for
the 5th annual PAC (Petpet Awards Ceremony). For the past five years, we here
at PAC have given out awards to the most outstanding petpets in Neopia. The
awards are presented in three categories. Without further ado, allow me to present
#1 & 2 Jimmi and Woogy the Hasees
These brave Hasees went to great heights to help their fellow petpets survive.
By flying into the air to retrieve doughnutfruit from the highest branches,
these two were able to gather enough food for all of the Hasees in Neopia! Starring
in Hasee Bounce, the noble exploits of this petpet duo earned them the top spot
in this awards category. If you want to read more about their amazing adventure,
pick up a copy of Jimmi or Woogy, two novels based on the heroic adventures
of these petpets.
#3 Gwyl the Symol
In order to prove his courageousness to the other Symols, Gwyl trekked deep
into the Symol mines to retrieve precious gems. When a rockslide trapped him
inside the caves, Gwyl knew just what to do. Hanging from a balloon, Gwyl was
able to use his trusty Lightmite companion to escape from the tunnels! Now that's
a tale of courage if I ever heard one!
#4 Dieter the Polarchuck
Risking snow worms and bloating, this valiant Polarchuck traversed deep into
the heart of Terror Mountain to satisfy his hunger. According to a reliable
source, Dieter donated all of the treasure he collected in the mountain to the
Petpet protection league! What a generous fellow!
#5 The Yooyuballs
Yooyuball is a sport which originated in the far-off land of Altador. For
those of you in the audience who don't know, it involves Neopets throwing Yooyus
(petpets) around an arena. The players try and toss the Yooyu into a goal. The
Yooyu's hard shell makes it safe for the Yooyu to be thrown around, but nonetheless,
these brave petpets deserve an award for their indomitability and guts.
Note: Because there are so many petpets that are receiving this award, the
award will instead be presented to the Altador Cup Committee.
#1 Donkor the Geb
The master locksmith behind the famous bolt at Sutek's tomb, this Geb is said
to be one of the cleverest petpets in the history of Neopia. To this day, nobody
has been able to work their way past the mysterious mechanism and gain Sutek's
riches. However, Donkor lived in the ancient times of the Lost Desert, so the
award will have to be given in his honor. Well done, Donkor!
#2 Lab Ray Kookith
An extraordinary scientist, this Kookith is the ingenious mind behind the petpet
lab ray. He is the only Neopian ever to figure out a successful way to morph
petpets. Even Kauvara can't figure out a potion to do the trick! His outstanding
intelligence earns him second place in this category!
#3 Warf Rescue Team
When some poor Kadoaties were stuck in a tree, the Warf Rescue Team was on
the job. Using cunning and wit, these Warfs stacked on top of each other to
reach the Kadoaties in need! Because of their creative and resourceful plan,
the Warf Rescue Team earns third place for this category!
#4 Gwyl the Symol
What's this? Gywl the Symol has won two awards this year? Yes, Gwyl's clever
plan to escape the Symol tunnels has earned him another award to join his bravery
award! Good going, Gwyl!
#5 Webs the Spyder
"Webs", the Spyder from Web of Vernax, has devised a clever way of trapping
those pesky Vernaxes. By spinning webs in a square, Webs can catch the Vernaxes
for food in a jiffy. For this masterful scheme, Webs deserves an award.
Best Giant Petpet
This category is new to this year. What is it? Well, fairly recently, monstrous
petpets have been popping up all over Neopia. Turmaculus, Snowager... these
names may sound familiar. These mammoths of petpets have been appearing in all
of the Neopian worlds. How did these petpets become the way they are? Dr. Sloth's
experiments gone wrong? Victims of petpet growth syrup? We may never know. However,
we will know which petpets won the awards for this category!
#1 The Turmaculus
Landing the number 1 slot is perhaps the most well known of giant petpets,
the Turmaculus. A colossal Turmac who resides in Meridell near the Symol Hole,
the Turmaculus is so gigantic that he is unable to move. Most of the day he
just lies there and sleeps. Pay him a visit if you want to try and wake him,
but be careful, his ever-empty appetite results in his ability to swallow anything,
including your petpet!
#2 The Snowager
A jumbo-sized version of a Snowickle, the Snowager can be found in the Ice
Caves, guarding his stash of plushies, keyrings and various other treasures.
More often than not, the Snowager is awake guarding his treasures. At certain
hours of the day, the Snowager decides to take a nap on his treasure. If you're
feeling lucky, you can try to sneak up to his pile of treasure and swipe a trinket.
Be on your guard, though, for the Snowager may wake up and fire shards of ice
at you and your Neopets. Ugh.
#3 Slug Monster
Not much is known about the beast guarding the ruins of old Maraqua who bears
a striking resemblance to a Slugawoo. Apparently, all those who came face to
with it were too petrified to speak. Just remember that you should never go
exploring the ruins alone... or unarmed!
According to the acclaimed adventurer Hannah, these mysterious and elusive
creatures make Terror Mountain their home. Gargantuan in appearance, these Snicklebeast
look-alikes give Terror Mountain its name. Coming in both the white and red-furred
varieties, these monsters are a terrible force to be reckoned with.
Coming in at the final slot for this category is Isca the Aisha's childhood
pet. Goregas is a massive Gulper who only Isca is able to call to arms. He was
able to help the Maraquans drive away Scarblade's wicked crew during the attack
on new Maraqua.
Thank you for coming to the 5th annual Petpet Awards Ceremony!
