Quote of the Week

"So, Sloth... Any final words before we submit you to the evils of the lab ray, transform you into a pretty Ballerina Usuki, and make you dance for us all night long?"

Fanatic or Lunatic?

Have you ever been to the Altador Colosseum to watch a game of Yooyuball? Or maybe cheer on your favorite team? If so, then you've most likely noticed that insane screaming blue Techo. Yep, he's been to every game and every practice ever held at the Colosseum, and he generally makes quite a show. Most people are living constantly in terror because of those eyes, myself included. I decided to separate fact from fish...

Exiting the Citadel

Gravity really has a lasting effect on people living high up in the air. At least Faerieland has the odd faerie to save you as you plummet. So, just what is the best way to leave the Darigan Citadel? No one knows. But, to be useful and annoying, I have compiled the ten WORST ways to leave. Enjoy! NOTE: The author of this article takes no responsibility for any of the following: maiming, personal injury, mind damaging experiences...

Fashionable Names

Believe it or not, your pet’s name helps in determining his or her future. In fact, your pet’s personality can even grow from either complying with or dissenting the implications of the name you gave him or her (don’t get what I mean? I’ll be explaining more as I go on).

However, now that the skies had finally cleared, I was unable to make up my mind as to what to do first. Bam! The door banged against the wall...

"Adventures in Petpetsitting" by broadwaybaby986
I couldn't think of any way for a Xweetok like myself to make Neopoints. About a week passed. I found out that my Momma's friend Viv was going to vacation in Mystery Island with her pets for a few days. Momma told me that Viv was worried because she didn't know who would take care of her petpets. That's when I had my brilliant idea. "Momma, can't I take care of Viv's petpets?" I asked. "And maybe..."

"A Dicey Situation" by perseph4981
But one throw had turned into two, the antes had started to get higher, and before she knew it, she was 21,540 Neopoints in the hole and time was starting to run out. She had to get home soon or her older sister would start to wonder. Elandriela was the oldest by far and would spend at least two hours lecturing her on work ethic and gambling and the dangerous company she was keeping and did she know the history of Krawk Island...

The Altador Cup Dream Team
With the Altador Cup moving into the third round, we've assembled a line-up that we think would make for a pretty unstoppable team. But with so many exceptional players to choose from, who made the list and who just missed out?
