Quote of the Week


Let me tell you something very important about competitions: it's important to do your best and to strive to improve, but never let someone's glory be your shame. We all have our moments to shine.


Planning an Adventure?



The first step is deciding what type of NeoAdventure you want to make. You should choose this according to what interests you and what you are best at doing. If you're not good at writing stories, you should probably make a quiz. If you're bad at making good outcomes for quizzes, you should probably write a story. I suggest you take this advice, but it's your choice, after all...

Mystifying Magic Squares



Edgar Eyrie, esteemed professor emeritus and good friend of Lenny Conundrum, fluttered down High Street alongside Petey Pteri, recent graduate of the Lenny Conundrum School of Puzzles, bottom of his class.

It has been swept away by the sands of time, crumbling slowly into erosion until there is nothing left of it but mere legend, myths that weave their tangled threads around young minds at bedtime. There is no reason any more for me to tell the truth...

"Jhudora Who?" by qazx301
"My plots are barely mentioned in the Neopian Times anymore, and little Miss Vira, so called 'Acara of Darkness', is front page news! I need a new plot - something creative, something unique.
