Would you fit in more with the warm sands of Mystery Island or the historical past of Altador? Well, fear no more; this quiz will help assure you to find the perfect site for your neohome based on your personality and needs.

It’s recommended that you record your answers. It may get a bit confusing.

a. Play beach volleyball with some Myncies; they know the game better than they know where their own tail is.

c. Head over to the nearest carnival; you love to waste your neopoints on silly and possibly rigged games.

d. Climb the largest mountain; you love the challenge of a seemingly impossible mission.

e. Play some Tug-of-War; who needs beach volleyball when you can pull a rope with all your might?

f. Go fishing; you love to relax and have patience to spare.

g. Hang out with some newly liberated Grundos. They’re brimming with enthusiasm, but who wouldn’t be after what they’ve been through?

i. Search for buried treasure; don’t you want to be a millionaire?

j. Count potatoes; it’s harder than it looks.

k. Hit some main shops; you need to buy food and new clothing anyway.

2.) Who are your ideal neighbors?

j. Knights, mages, heroes, farmers, and kings, whether they are a bit grumpy or wise.

l. A small cluster of citizens who enjoy your money... I mean company.

3.) What type of climate do you prefer to live in?

4.) It’s time for dinner, what kind of food did you prepare?

a. Tropical fruits, I adore those exotic fruits. They’re so juicy and succulent.

b. Faerie Bubbles and anything light and fluffy. It also has to have an attractive appearance and up to the same standards of the faeries; why would anyone eat anything less than the best?

f. Fish and kelp; what else is there to eat? Also, if you have the time, I recommend Kelp; it’s the finest restaurant around. And if you have some Breadfish, try it with Butterfish; it’s the perfect combo.

g. Cosmic foods; those Grundos sure know how to cook a delectable meal. It may look a bit foreign to a newcomer, but it’s better than what your owner feeds you. That’s for sure!

h. Omelettes; I can’t imagine breakfast without a slice from the Giant Omelette. It’s just tradition, like doing dailies.

i. Me cookin'? That’s never goin' to happen. I say ye should visit the Golden Dubloon instead; ye haven’t had real food till ye have the food there. Enough said matey.

Now that you have completed those questions, tally up your answers and whichever response has the most tallies, you’re best suited for. But before you build your neohome, you should explore the land and find out if it is really right for you.

If you mostly answered A, then you should live on Mystery Island. You’ll fit right in with the islanders. You love to relax and spend your days sunbathing on the beach. It’s hard to aggravate you; you tend to stay calm and not let stressful things bother you. At Mystery Island you might want to spend your time taking a Tiki Tour, training your pets at the Training School, or maybe visiting the local Island Mystic. Now if you’re not very fond of Mystery Island, don’t tell the natives that, but you should check out Lutari Island. You might like the mysterious island and its Lutaris more.

If you mostly answered B, then you should build your neohome on Faerieland. You love the idea of living on a Cloud, high above everyone else. You’re not afraid of heights or to be a bit more daring than most others. You adore luxury and don’t mind splurging your neopoints as long as you’re living on top like the faeries do. At Faerieland, you might want to take some time to spin the Wheel of Excitement, get your Neopet a job at the Employment Agency, or solve the Faerie Crossword of the day.

If you mostly answered C, then you’re meant to live in the Haunted Woods or on the Darigan Citadel. You love things that would frighten the life out of most Neopians and their Neopets. You don’t mind the dark and sinister aspects of these lands; in fact you might even be a bit evil yourself. You probably plot to rule the world in your spare time, but if you ever do take a break in the Haunted Woods, you might enjoy completing quests for the Brain Tree and the Esophagor, venturing into the Castle of Evil Thade, or visiting the Deserted Fairground. If you decide to live on the Darigan Citadel, then you might enjoy playing Cellblock with the local inmates, testing your Petpet’s strength in the Petpet Arena, or visiting Lord Darigan to see if he’s rebuilt his kingdom.

If you mostly answered D, then you should live on Terror Mountain. You love the snow so much you could live where it never ceases to snow. You enjoy living at such a high altitude; the journey back to civilization doesn’t scare you. You love challenges and thrill of adrenalin. One of your favorite pastimes is celebrating; you go all out during the Month of Celebrating. Nothing can bring you down; you’re always merry, probably a bit too much at times. At Terror Mountain, you might want to visit the Igloo Garage Sale and Tarla’s Shop of Mystery, journey into the Snowager’s Ice Cavern, or maybe play a round of Snow Wars.

If you mostly answered E, then you should build your new neohome in the Lost Desert. You can take the heat; there are so many activities that you don’t even think about the heat. You’re an active person who doesn’t let obstacles get in their way. You can be a bit impulsive at times; maybe that’s how you ended up living in the middle of the desert. However, during your stay or permanent residence in the Lost Desert, you may choose to visit Coltzan’s Shrine, shop for scrolls at Sutek's Scrolls, or maybe play a round of Sakhmet Solitaire.

If you mostly answered F, then pack your bags and head to Maraqua. You love salt water enough to inhabit it. You’re a fun loving Neopian who enjoys spending their time swimming and stroking through the water. You’re one of the most graceful Neopians today. You tend to be more careful and conscious of your decisions; you might over analyze from time to time. While Maraqua may be rebuilding and lacking in activities compared to other lands, nonetheless you might enjoy fishing at the Underwater Cavern, eating an excellent meal at Kelp, or assembling shells at the Collectable Sea Shells shop.

If you mostly answered G, then you should prepare for your move to the Virtupets Space Station. Just watch out for Dr. Sloth and his plots to invade. You like being ahead of the game, and love competition, it doesn’t stop you, only fuels you more. At the Virtupets Space Station, you may find pleasure in trying your luck at the Level of Doom, playing Spell-or-Starve, or adopting a Grundo. However, if you’re not a big fan of the Space Station, you might want to check out Kreludor; where you may find delight in mining at the Kreludan Mining Corp, reading some new books at Booktastic Books, or pushing a token into the NeoCola Machine.

If you mostly answered H, then you should live in Tyrannia. Beware of the evil pterodactyls, though! You’re generally a person who likes things simple; there’s no need to complicate anything. You also don’t feel to lavish your neopoints; you buy items based on functionality and necessity. And you love to shop around for the best price out there. In Tyrannia, you might want to spend your leisure time playing Grarrl Keno, seeing the hottest rock concert at the Tyrannian Concert Hall, or spinning the Wheel of Monotony.

If you mostly answered I, then you should live on Krawk Island. The pirate life is for you! You love to loosen up after some hard work making neopoints... doing what it is you do. You have an inclination to spend a lot of neopoints at once, whether it is on a paint brush or at the casino, but every time you do spend your neopoints you enjoy it. On Krawk Island, you’ll find bliss in dining out at the prestigious Golden Dubloon, playing a game of Dubloon Disaster, or enrolling your neopet at Cap'n Threelegs' Swashbuckling Academy.

If you mostly answered J, get you and your neopets to Meridell, Brightvale, or Altador. You’re a person who likes do to things the traditional way, no need to have the latest gadgets. You complete your tasks the way your forefathers did; if it was good enough for them, it’s good enough for you. You have patience and a sort of wisdom that may seem unattainable to others. You’re quite fond of historical items and events. Nonetheless, you may want to set time aside in Meridell to place a bet on Turdle Racing, attempt to wake the great Turmaculus, or tell a joke to the Grumpy Old King. In Brightvale, you might want try spinning the Wheel of Knowledge, visiting the prominent window shop Brightvale Glaziers, or imparting knowledge to the Wise Old King. In Altador, free time may be spent gazing upon the great legends in Hall of Heroes, reading famed history at the Altadorian Archives, or wasting neopoints at the local shops such as Magical Marvels.

If you mostly answered K, you’d be fit to live in Neopia Central, Kiko Lake, or Roo Island. You’re the classic kind of Neopian who spends time with their devoted neopets. You cherish time with family and friends as well. You are likely to be the fun loving and happy-go-lucky Neopian. You live for the simple delights of life. In Neopia Central, time is well spent purchasing items at the various shops, buying rare merchandise at the Auction House, or admiring artwork at the Art Centre. On Kiko Lake, you’ll find delight in the tiny pleasures of the Glass Bottom Boat Tours or browsing the Carpentry and Treats shops. On Roo Island, many spend time riding the local Merry Go Round, playing the renowned Dice-A-Roo, or purchasing keepsakes at Roo Island Souvenirs.

If you mostly answered L, you should find a neohome in Shenkuu. You’re the kind of person who is fond of being distinct; you don’t really mind what others think of you. You have a unique and sometimes foreign taste. However, you do have an inclination to be a bit materialistic; you’re quite attached to your neopoints. Your greatest enjoyment is earning those neopoints. In Shenkuu, many find amusement in mixing ingredients at Culinary Concoctions, participating in a game of Kou-Jong, and shopping at the numerous shops such as Fanciful Fauna.
