Quote of the Week

Basics For a Great Look



You can't just slap a My Sisters Frilly Skirt, Old Fashioned Potato Sack, Field of Courgettes Background and Basic Red Balloon on your yellow JubJub and call yourself a customizer! There is one huge thing about customization that you MUST remember. Moderation, moderation, moderation. You should make sure that your customization is not too skimpy or boring, yet is not too cluttered. You don't need to have all of the clothing zones filled! I feel sorry for the poor pets...

Altador Cup: The Teams



With the Altador Cup only a few weeks away and fast approaching, it'll soon be time to whip out those team jerseys and get supporting! Last season saw the Lost Desert triumph as the 5th winners of the annual competition, beating Kreludor in a close final game; the most marvellous finale to date!
