The Extravagance of Life

They spoke of Adrian's masterpiece, handcrafted by him and funded by the king: the Wheel of Extravagance. Created from exquisite gold and bronze, it was designed as a tourist attraction for the city. A Neopian could pay one hundred thousand Neopoints to spin the wheel, and depending on where it landed, they won a prize.

"And you made sure to make the right parts heavier?" Jazan questioned.

Pocket Change

"They want to put a lever into the wall of the Supply Deck."

"Okay..." Castrix was silent for a moment. "A lever for what?"

"Well, it's a weird request. They say they want a mechanical hand to come out when someone pulls the lever, and take Neopoints from the person who pulled it."

The Once-Forgotten Shore

Loud enough for the whole crew to hear, he announced, "Prepare to land on that shore." Tornin the navigator looked down at his map, then back up to the shore. Back down to the map, then back up to the shore. He decided he wasn't mistaken. "Captain, I think it would be very unwise to land here."

The Auction

Serena the Shoyru nervously clutched her bag. It contained exactly 12,000 Neopoints—her entire summer savings. It was the last day of vacation and she had come to the Auction House with her best friend, Callie, in hopes of buying something new and exciting. But the sun was sinking lower in the sky, the crowds around the Auction House were starting to thin out, and Serena had not spent any of her Neopoints yet.

In Stitches

"Come on, now, Mr. Rotter. I'll never be able to sew your arm back on if you don't stop hiding in the cellar." The zombie peered up at the Plushie Gnorbu as he loomed over the cellar door and shuddered, inching further back into the shadows.

"Pocket Change" by airickuh
Thanks for coming in to discuss this," Grimilix said to his employees, Castrix and Novix. "No problem, boss," Castrix replied. "You're in charge, after all." "That's true. Well, the Space Station management has given us a job, and I think you two would be well-equipped to handle it... and since you're the only pair of workers not busy this week, that works out nicely." Novix said, "Well, let's hear it." "They want to put a lever into the wall of the Supply Deck." "Okay..." Castrix was silent for a moment. "A lever for what?" "Well, it's a weird request. They say they want a mechanical hand to come out when someone pulls the lever, and take Neopoints from the person who pulled it." "Uh... what?" "Yeah, like I said, it's weird. A way to make some money, I guess... Though it seems more like something Dr. Sloth would do. Oh well, we just do what we're told, right?" "Right. Well, we'll find the supplies and get to work." "All right. Thanks, you two," Grimilix dismissed. Castrix and Novix made their way down to the Supply Deck, where they could find... supplies. (Funny how that works.)

The Faerie of Ars Arcanium: Part One
"I mean the problems with magic around all of Neopia, it's affecting me and the other Faeries too." Taelia said. Diakumablo and Sinisal stared at her in shock. It was true that magic seemed to be going haywire recently and any Neopet who tried to use it would never get the desired result. It was causing quite a lot of trouble for Neopia, but they weren't aware that this was affecting the Faeries of Neopia too.

The Amulet's Curse: Part Two
It had been a long trip to Altador. The pair had walked through the desert surrounding Sakhmet, and through a mountain range on a path few knew about, but finally the great land became visible. King Altador was right. The water levels were rising - and fast. In a couple days, Amira guessed, it would reach the main city. It certainly was an emergency situation.
