Quote of the Week


Not far away from the edge of the swamp stands a grand, old mansion, with magnificent columns and a wrap around porch. Though the dwelling is statuesque in size, time has ravaged the facade. Peeling paint covers most of the exterior walls, which are swollen and rotting from exposure to devastating wind and rain. Numerous windows lining the front side of the home are broken, and the ones that remain are covered in thick dust and cobwebs. You could tell no one has shown this place any love or care for many years.


Customization Guide for your Jetsam



The Jetsam is a very special species with a long-standing history in Neopia. In fact, they are so special that they are a limited edition pet, meaning they cannot simply be created! They must be morphed by a morphing potion, zapped by the secret laboratory ray, or created on their special pet day (October 16th)! I would highly recommend owning a Jetsam as they are a fiercely loyal friend. According to Neopets, "Jetsams are Neopia's mean fighting fish. They are mostly unfriendly and vicious but if you can...

5 Ways to Celebrate Symol Day


Symol Day is a date designated on the Neopian calendar to celebrate one of the most iconic Petpets of all. As the name itself says, it is dedicated to Symol - a medieval Petpet species that hails from the kingdom of Meridell and is known to love burrowing (even in locations they should probably not be). This holiday takes place yearly on the 23rd of the Month of Collecting... (October 23rd).

"Lair of the Voodoo King" by faeriemelly
A hazy moon dimly lit the forested swamp below. The sound of croaking mortogs and buzzing bumbluz resonated across the entire area. Heavy clumps of moss hung lazily in the towering trees, occasionally swaying in the gentle autumn breeze. This night seemed like any other early fall night; the remnants of summer not yet washed away by a sea of crispy fallen leaves, yet too chilly for frolicking in the still water. Not far away from the edge of the swamp stands a grand, old mansion, with magnificent columns and a wrap around porch. Though the dwelling is statuesque in size, time has ravaged the facade.

"A Quiet Night in Altador" by kadface
The streets of the city of Altador were almost always quiet at this time of night, once the last echoes of the great clock striking two have faded away, and there is only the slow dripping of water, seeping off the rooftops above, to disturb the silence. So what was it that had woken the Kacheek from his dreamless sleep? He sat up, and reached out towards his bedside table to search for his glasses. The very edge of his fingertips managed to touch them, before they clattered to the floor out of reach. “Oh bother”, muttered the Kacheek, whose name was Paisley, to himself, before scooting over to the side of his bed. With his left hand, he reached down towards the floor, patting around in an effort to locate the fallen object. After what seemed like ages...

"Tropical (F)ire" by nick_and_nickette
Takes place in Y22 (2020) It's not often that a servant goes on vacation. True, the Nightsteed might be a retired one, and a noble of sorts, but still, a servant and loyal friend to the King of Qasala. The old Uni had never been outside the Lost Desert in all his very long life. Even though he loved his home, he felt like he needed something different, something new. But nothing too crazy. He was very old, after all. He couldn't go on risky adventures. He figured he needed to go someplace to relax — but where? Then he remembered, he had heard about this "Mystery Island" a while ago. He also heard it was a tropical paradise. That sounded nice, he thought to himself. So, he decided he wanted to go there. "Are you sure about this, dear friend? I don't know about...
