Quote of the Week


The Neopian Pound was open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty-five days a year (and yes, sadly, even on the Day of Giving). “Quiet,” wasn’t ever a word you’d use to describe the place – Neopia was an insomniac’s economy, after all, and time halted for no pet, whether they were placing Food Club bets, waiting at the Soup Kitchen, or playing a late-night game of Gormball.


What to do when you STILL feel like a n00b



If you’re anything like me, you started playing Neopets a long, long time ago. Possibly when you were young enough that your parents had to fax TNT a permission form to access neoboards and guilds. When it comes to rocking the account age shield on your lookup, you’ve got that shiny 15 years, but beyond that you’re totally lacking.So what do you do when your account is old but you still feel like a n00b? To meet your goals, you need neopoints! Back when my account was new, my goal was to make 10,000 NP a day.

The Times Have Changed, Can You Relate?



When I was just the age of 10 years old, I discovered that there is an online realm that individuals from across the world can be in. I didn’t know that signing up for the first time would leave me hungry for the next 16 years. Registering for the first time had me intrigued by what’s to come, what a newbie pack is, and how the site even worked. What are these creatures and what are their names? I had so much to learn, not knowing I’d be where I am now.

Potions, Elixirs, Tonics, and Their Wondrous Uses


Neopia is filled with many kinds of items such as medicines, books, stamps, training aids, cards, toys, the list goes on and on. One particular set of items has intrigued me more than any other however. So much so, that I began collecting them and made a gallery filled of this wonderful item in all its beautiful varieties. No, I’m not talking about Neggs or Usukis. I’m talking about potions.

The Neopian Pound was open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty-five days a year (and yes, sadly, even on the Day of Giving). “Quiet,” wasn’t ever a word you’d use to describe the place – Neopia was an insomniac’s economy, after all, and time halted for no pet, whether they were placing Food Club bets, waiting at the Soup Kitchen, or playing a late-night game of Gormball. So of course, this applied to Rose, too.The Pound was a huge, sprawling building that towered high into the skies of the Neopian Plaza, so high you had to crane your neck to look at it properly. There was always construction going on, just to fit the sheer number of inhabitants they had coming in each week, and on clear days, you could usually spot a number of Shoyru builders swooping about the building, tools in hand. New bedrooms, more bathrooms, extra communal space, and of course expanding the library, because Rose was absolutely adamant that pets should be learning something useful during their stay here, even if it was the extended history of the Lost Desert, or what foods exactly the Esophagor liked to eat.

"Three of a kind" by rkbear
"Are we going to go in or we just gonna stand here all night?” Steel, a darigan poogle, adjusted the heavy pack on his back. He stood behind a magma xweetok. She was his sister Scarlet. Normally she was a fearless explorer, but now she just watched the fire dance and the gypsys who sat around it. “Huh?” Scarlet looked up at her older brother surprised. “Sorry, Steel what were you saying?” She pulled her coat more tightly around herself to dim her glow, but it didn’t help much. She was making nearly as much light as the fire she’d been watching. Her fur always gave away her emotions to her family. One of the disadvantages of taking a dip in the magma pool in Moltara. Steel had seen her jump in that with eyes wide open and one paw on her nose without a second thought when she’d finally caught the guard asleep after weeks of pestering. “I said, let’s go,” He pushed past her no bothered by the heat rising from her fur. Another side effect of her swim. She had to wear heat resistant clothes. “Steel, no wait!” She protested grabbing his arm, but Steel was much stronger than her and he pulled right into the middle of the camp.

"The Dark Detective:Part Seven " by tanikagillam
Elena was convinced that their boat would still be there, despite the tide having come in and out for several days. Dark had a less optimistic view, considering how everything else that could have gone wrong had gone wrong over the last couple of days, and was in something of a mood by the time they – Dark, Elena, Soren and Belle – had managed to climb to the top of the ravine, following Elena’s rainbow flames up the rocky cavern wall. It was therefore something of a surprise when the group returned to the spot Dark and Elena had washed up at, and found their small boat overturned and half buried in the sand. Sebastian jumped out of Dark’s arm and ran towards the boat, and stopped to give it a kick. Why he did this was anybody’s guess, as the group had long since learnt to mostly ignore the Meepit and his strange antics. Together they dug out the sand around the boat and flipped it over, dusting it off as best they could. The wood was strong and thick, and seemed to have last well against the elements as it lay on the beach.“So we’re all clear on the plan – right?”
