Quote of the Week


Scarblade ignored him, the heavy rain sliding off his deep red coat. "Where're you goin'? Get back here!" Scarblade again ignored him. Garin growled and his fists tightened. "COWARD!!!" he screamed. Scarblade stopped dead in his tracks.


Make Good Screenshots



You know those screenies where a 30+ month old account is asking a "newbie" question, and the age and text are outlined in a dumbstruck red? How about the ones where some spammer is claiming to be a celebrity, but they can't even spell "their" name? Have you seen the screenies of overpriced items on the Trading Post that are all too common? Avoid these if you don't want your reader to fall asleep. Certainly, someone who has encountered Neopian screenies for the very first time could well find them amusing, but...

Feed Picky Meepits



The meepits come in six colors. There are the simpler red, yellow, and blue corresponding to the machine, but there are also the more complicated orange, purple, and pink. Now, if you just want to play Meepit Juice Break, that's all you need to know, but if you REALLY want that avatar, stay tuned! Meepits are picky little creatures!

She flitted from room to room in the chilly house, wiping her eyes with a damp handkerchief, and wailing things like: "My son will never see another sunrise!" and "Oh, if only we hadn't given him those ice skates for Christmas!" and "Perhaps we should freeze him until the doctor arrives; it may be his only hope!"

"Safety Deposit Woes" by kittybutterscotch
"Now that I think about it, I did throw in some rotten things I forgot to take out..." I muttered to myself. "Besides, I bet we could go and sell some of the extra stuff to buy more food around the house," I said encouragingly. My pets didn't even look at me. "And maybe we could get some more toys around here..."

"Donny's Toy Repair Shop" by tallydepp
Donny wasn't your typical Bori. Some tourists had even complained that his abruptness and general unfriendliness toward them had ruined their holiday, but this didn't faze Donny. As long as everyone paid to have their toys repaired, they could complain all they liked. One thing they never had cause to complain about...
