Quote of the Week


"Oh, that's just great. We're trapped in this tomb with no food and little water, probably never to see the world outside again! But hey, at least we have this rubber duck!"


Lab Rats and the Battledome



The lab ray has long been stigmatized as a lazy way to train, but no one can doubt that it helps. Lab ray data varies from study to study but in general a year of labbing is good for adding about 200 hit points and 70 strength stats to your pet, while taking away a handful of defence stats and 10 or 15 levels. The hit points alone will save you anywhere from 1,600,000 neopoints a year in codestones to 15,000,000 NP if you feed Sneggs...

A cage that big could only be used to hold little children in that she kept to bake in her cakes. There was always a cake or a plate of cookies sitting on the table. Gwen could smell it outside. It smelled delicious but she knew better...

"A Lesson in Battle" by dlandwehrs4816
He darted forward, Sword of Skardsen in his hand. In a series of nearly impossible to follow moves, he disarmed the baffled Skeith, and easily ran his hit points down to zero. "Maybe you should go pick a fight with someone you can handle. Looks like Punchbag Bob over there is open." His opponent stood slowly, embarrassment obvious...
