Quote of the Week


"The reason the Sway drinks cocoa now is because we stole their reserved stash of tea for the few of us who drink it. They won't admit it, though, of course. 'Nothing escapes the Sway' and all that."


Reading Up on Magic



All the main factions of Neopia have announced their intention to seize control of the Obelisk, including some heretofore hidden factions which we know very little about! Katherine_The_Jewel convinced me to pledge my loyalties to Rasala the Bright as one of the Order of the Red Erisim. As is Katherine's nature, she also decided to drag me around the Neopian book shops so she could do some research to properly prepare for the...

The Thieves Guild



The Thieves Guild. Everyone's heard of them, especially with the war on. They lurk in the shadows, just out of sight, and you don't realize they've been around until they're gone... and your pockets are lighter. But not too much is known about this sneaky group of alleyway renegades. I was able to get an inside look at how this band of thieves go about their daily lives.

She hadn't realized before how much things were valued at...

It's an old brown door - nearly destroyed by the many blizzards it's faced while protecting what lies behind it. And now, it's the last obstacle you must face. It's been a long and difficult journey, and this is the moment that you've been awaiting. "I only need to deliver a..."

"The Obelisk & The Thieves" by joni242
Ven floated up to the tavern, known to most thieves as the main base for the Thieves Guild. He never really asked himself why this was the case. He simply assumed it had something to do with Kanrik liking the coffee served here. It wasn't a fancy tavern in the least, rather it was quite run down, and looked as if it would fall apart if a large blizzard had occurred. That was the problem...
