A Key Quest Story

Ryan looked inside the box he was holding and sighed. The Key Quest arcade had been undergoing renovations for what seemed like forever. The Green Kacheek bought this token for his younger brother just days before he found out about the closing. He had been holding on to it ever since.

Pick Your Own: Experiences of an Explorer

I've always heard tales of the wonderful oasis known as the Meri Acres farm. My friends had told me about the wonderful adventures to be had. They told me about how they had wandered for hours, filling their baskets to the brim with the delicious fruits (but mainly berries) of their labor. I knew, however, that Meri Acres didn’t actually exist.

Cup Loyalty: Some Feelings About Switching Sides



Sign-ups for this season’s Altador Cup have begun, and with that comes hundreds of thousands of Neopians filled with one of two feelings: a strong conviction that the team they’ve always stuck by is about to have their day in the sun (Altador pun intended), or the unease of realizing they haven’t quite settled on a team yet. But wait!--What if there’s a third feeling? Yes, a horrible, confusing third feeling, followed by a fourth, fifth, and even sixth feeling? What if that feeling is telling you to switch allegiances after years of dutiful rooting-on and color-coordinating? What then?

The Sleeper of Altador: Part One
These Neopians never knew just how good they had it. To be fair, she took everything for granted, too--that is, until she was frozen in stone for an eon. During her imprisonment, the concept of time became warped in her mind, but she could still feel things--things like the joy and hurt radiating from the Neopians bustling about her, and the reverberations from centuries of war.

JayJay, Lili, and Yasmine arrived at the tavern to find it crowded with patrons. However, it was fairly easy to find Garin and the others, as they were the only pirates in the whole joint. The rest were just normal sailors, which wasn’t that surprising in this part of Neopia.
