Quote of the Week


"Yo, what's up, my Guildies?" Kanrik called out, giving everyone a peace sign.

His greeting was met with a heavy silence and puzzled stares.


Venturing to the Vortex



"Sometimes, you'll go all day without so much as a nibble." An older, Purple Krawk sits hunched over the dark waters. In his well-worn claws, a frail rod dangles above the lake as a bobber floats atop the vortex. His shipwreck shorts and fishing vest seemed to be covered in so much sand and salt it makes one wonder how many days, weeks or maybe even years the Krawk has been venturing out to Ye Olde Fishing Vortex...

Sightseeing in Meridell



With the anniversary of the Discovery of Meridell approaching quickly – the 30th day in the month of Swimming... mark your calendars! – many of us Neopians are planning on taking our pets to the grand medieval land in honor of this festive and joyous occasion.

Potatoes: Meridell's Treasure


In celebration of the anniversary of the discovery of Meridell, I felt that the greatest tribute I could pay was to write about what is, to my mind, the single most important, valuable, and culturally significant item to ever be produced in Meridell.

They want to be free, beating their wings against your ribs like birds trying to escape a cage. Bast is afraid if she opens her mouth the secret will come tumbling out, faster than she can snatch it back...

"The Kindness of a Mad Scientist" by undeadicarus
The concoction in front of Dr. Finneus Steamcog bubbled absently as he scribbled notes in a weathered notepad. It was covered in some sort of faux hide a colleague of his had created. She was more environmentally conscious then most, and had been spending most of her time recently fighting against the continued sale of Stick-O-Mynci. He was actually experimenting with a new type of morphing potion for her, one that would change any Mynci into a less (apparently) tasty...

"101 Ways to Annoy a Uni" by almedha
"But... but what is this?" Rushishi objected, flopping the cover of the book he was reading back over his Blumaroo hand. Something about their owner, Almedha, wanting them to spend more time reading and getting smarter and less time playing games. For some reason. "101 Ways to Annoy a Uni?" McCloud was glad he was an Eyrie if someone out there was publishing books like this... Was there a book out there entitled 101 Ways to Annoy a Blumaroo? It might be worth checking out...
