Quote of the Week
Orlitz knew two things were certain: first, that Erin had vanished. Second, that the welcome center in which she had gone missing was, well, untouched. No sign of a struggle. No hint as to what had crashed. No clue, even, that another neopet had been inside in weeks. The Cybunny hurried through the desolate room. It was unbelievably dusty: evidently, no one had vacuumed in a while. What little light trickled in through the greenery draping over the windows revealed moted dustlight filtering through the air.
The Best Avatars For Halloween!!
The leaves have started to change and fall off their branches, Neopians everywhere have picked the pumpkin patches clear, the air has gotten a cold chill to it, and everything seems positively spook-tastic. Ghouls and goblins are starting to surface from the depths and the Haunted Woods seem just a little scarier than they usually do. Don't get me started on the creeps in the Deserted Fairground...it might be best to avoid that place this time of year, you might lose more than just a wallet full of neopoints!!

Orlitz knew two things were certain: first, that Erin had vanished. Second, that the welcome center in which she had gone missing was, well, untouched. No sign of a struggle. No hint as to what had crashed. No clue, even, that another neopet had been inside in weeks. The Cybunny hurried through the desolate room. It was unbelievably dusty: evidently, no one had vacuumed in a while. What little light trickled in through the greenery draping over the windows revealed moted dustlight filtering through the air. To one side of the room were several empty desks: a few couches on the other. Shelves of old magazines and park maps lined the walls, accompanied by framed photos of Brightville. Nothing held a clue as to where Erin had gone. At the far end of the room were several doors. Orlitz rushed to them, desperately rattling their handles. All locked!
|"A Story of the Haunted Woods:Part Six
" by june_scarlet
They headed back upstairs and approached Samuel’s cage. “So, about the safe in the cellar,” said Ally.
“How do you open it? Where’s the key? The combination?” added Saskori.
“How do I open it?” said Samuel. “Quite easily, though I think you’ll find it much harder. There is no key or combination.”
“Then how do you open it?” asked Saskori.
“I’m afraid I have no reason to tell you,” he replied.
“Well, then, I’m afraid we have no reason to release you,” said Alvideria.
Samuel considered this. “Very well, release me, and I will open the safe for you.”
“Okay-” started Ally, but Saskori cut her off.
“No, we’ll release you only if you bring the sister back. And all the other ghosts.”
Samuel frowned, but nodded. “Very well.”
Alvideria reached for the cage, but Saskori stopped her. “Wait, we didn’t say we had to do it right now. I don’t quite trust him, and I think Nathan can keep a better eye on him than we could.”
|"The Book of the Twelve:Part Six" by herdygerdy
Polmith was said to have come from an island that Tradym discovered on one of her voyages. Everyone on the island grew to enormous size, and Polmith himself was said to be twice as tall as the average Skeith. The two became fast friends and when Tradym decided to return home, Polmith asked to join her and learn about the strange continent beyond the horizon. Polmith was a man of tremendous wit as well as height, and would spend the evenings of their voyage home telling stories that reduced the crew to tears. He wielded magic common in his homeland, augmenting his size magically to become even stronger. When Tradym was eventually asked to join the Great Empire, she recommended Polmith as well.
The Cybunny was dressed in sailor’s grab, a long overcoat to shield her from the rain. Though it was hardly needed there, the tropical rain forest they had discovered on the island was lush and humid.
