Quote of the Week


There once was a great warrior in Altador, a master whose skill and power were renowned across the land, whose reverence for the eleven founders was unmatched, and who was even foretold to follow in their footsteps. Delia was her name. It was a name slated to go down in history, until the celebrated warrior was struck by a terrible illness.


Celebrating Korbat Day this Fall



Korbats face the stigma of being seen as terrifying neopets - I mean after all, they are bats and they lurk in the darkest of nights with their favourite haunt being the eerie Haunted Woods. With Halloween around the corner of Korbat Day, it’s hard not associating them with the spooky holiday and thinking they are malicious or children of Halloween. However, one afternoon stroll in the month of Collecting with my pets, I encountered some Korbats having the time of their lives playing and rustling amongst fallen autumn leaves. I’ve hardly seen them frolicking in the day.

Halloween Preparations Guide



Halloween is quickly approaching and you want to be sure that you have everything prepared for Halloween night. Your neohome should be decked out in the spookiest of decorations to impress all the trick-or-treaters, you should have plenty of delicious treats on hand to give out, and you’ll want to be sure that your pets are dressed in the best costumes on the block. My guide will make sure your Halloween night ends in a wonderful success and leaves you feeling fulfilled. Halloween only comes once a year so you might as well have some fun with it!

Halloween Shopkeepers to Creep it Real


Halloween is upon us! It’s time to pull together your most terrifying customizations, overdose on Halloween candy, and decorate your Neohome with the spookiest decor you can afford! What do all of these efforts have in common? NP, of course! You don’t want to be the only one in the neighbourhood whose Halloween spirit isn’t up to snuff, so it’s time to rake in a little moolah. And what better way to make NP than to spruce up your shop, clear your SDB and start putting some old junk up for sale?

"Beware The Zomutt!" by manifestbethany
Beware the Zomutt! A shock of light blue fur emerged from behind the Ice Caves' headstone in the Game Graveyard. Large floppy ears twitched as the Neopet raised his nose to the sky and scented the air. The Baby Lupe's red bandanna was disheveled and his eyelids drooped. He had spent the last hour challenging himself with the now retired puzzles in the Ice Caves. He didn't earn any Neopoints from the game, since it was retired. He had earned a little bit of pride from completing the puzzles, and he felt a little smarter. Caspianboi's jaw expanded with a deep yawn as he watched the sun fall below the horizon. He hadn't planned on staying in the Game Graveyard past dark, but he had lost track of time. The graveyard was located in the Haunted Woods, and he could barely see the tip of Edna's Tower off in the distance. He couldn't even pick up a sound from the Gypsy Camp, where he knew a warm fire was probably roaring to keep away the cold.

"The Legend of the Sixth Healer" by iouchan
There once was a great warrior in Altador, a master whose skill and power were renowned across the land, whose reverence for the eleven founders was unmatched, and who was even foretold to follow in their footsteps. Delia was her name. It was a name slated to go down in history, until the celebrated warrior was struck by a terrible illness. Her convalescence was long-drawn. The best healers in the city did everything in their power to ensure a speedy recovery. In spite of their efforts, once Delia's state was stable and her life out of danger, she remained weak and frail, a shadow of her former self. The training pitch where she once excelled only frustrated her further. The visits of her admirers and companions in arms could not alleviate her gloom or her boredom. After some time, even her closest friends did not call in on her as often. "You've already made so much progress," said an eventide Wocky with a kind smile as she arranged fresh flowers into a vase.

"Mystery of the Brightville Vanishing:Part Three " by josephinefarine
"And you found this note where?” “It was pinned to a desk with a knife,” answered Orlitz. She was back in the Brightville ticket booth, seated in a beanbag chair. Well, the Cybunny wanted to be seated, but it was difficult to appear dignified whilst sinking into an oversized plush sack. Across from her, Sophia Grigsby leaned against her desk and studied the ransom note found in the welcome center. “I think this, without a doubt, proves that Erin is being held against her will,” she continued, “so I think it’s time we contacted the Brightvale Guard.” Orlitz struggled out of her lumpy seat (which at this point had absorbed most of the Cybunny), and reached for the ransom note, but Sophia stopped her. She slumped back into the beanbag. “Orlitz, I’m not sure I want Brightville to get this kind of publicity so close to its demolition,” she began, “and for all we know, this might as well be some sort of publicity stunt to preserve the park. You never found Lou, did you?”
