How to Hide Your Incredible Love for Sloth.

Does Neopets Attract A Certain Type Of Player?

No matter who I chat with on the Neoboards, I'm always struck by their excellent qualities. It seems that everyone on this site is absolutely bonkers over their stunning virtual pets, and no one is bored or apathetic about them. I began to realize that the Neopets website attracts a certain kind of player, one that has enthusiasm, imagination, and positivity.

"Edna's Quest" by demento
The glow of Karipo's lantern did little to dispel the damp gloom of the forest at night. She pulled her cloak tighter around herself and glanced to the left and right, catching sight of a lone Whoot watching her from the treetops. Somewhere in the distance, a branch crackled as if it had been stepped on. She stiffened, frozen in place for what felt like a long time...and then she bolted. Moonlight fell in scattered rays through tangled webs of branches, chaotically lighting the way through the woods. Karipo's mind raced with thoughts of what might be following her. Ghosts? Terrible mutated creatures? A pack of particularly hungry werelupes? Each option seemed more horrifying than the last, and the further she allowed her mind to go, the faster and faster she ran. What a foolish idea it had been, venturing into the woods alone for the sake of completing a quest! She bet her siblings were having fun at the fairgrounds, browsing the marketplace for souvenirs, or sightseeing in Neovia. Karipo resigned herself to the thought that if she got out of there alive, she was never coming back to the Haunted Woods for a vacation. Her train of thought was sharply interrupted when she tripped over an exposed tree root, lost her footing, and slammed to the ground with enough force to send the items in her basket tumbling down the hill before her. Fear exploded into full-blown panic. Karipo scrambled to her feet and rushed to gather the objects Edna requested for a potion: a green apple, honey sticks, and a turnip. Frankly she thought it was a horrifying combination, but, well, Karipo didn't want to ask questions. She just thought it would be fun to run a quest for the old witch who lived in the tower at the edge of the woods.

Janet and Jane: The Case of the Amnesiacs: Part One
I woke up with a serious headache. It felt like something hit my head. I rubbed my head to find a bump on the back of my head. It was a pretty big bump, too. The bump hurt whenever I touched it, so I decided not to rub it.
