Quote of the Week

Balthazar is changing things up. This season, look out for his new creation: bottled children. Yes, the great, terrorizing Lupe will now be capturing young Neopians that are foolish enough to walk to his door and putting them in oversized bottles. Will they sell? No one really knows.

Candy Corn: Versatile

The Halloween season is upon us again, and nothing says Halloween better than that little yellow, orange and white candy we all start to crave once the leaves begin to fall. That's right, Candy Corn! The candy with no expiration date, as TNT calls it, is a favorite among Neopians and Neopets alike, and lucky for all you candy corn fans out there, there's more ways to enjoy this triangular treat than by continually filling your inventory with 50 pieces of Candy Corn Classic...

Gothic Styles

During this time of year Neopets seems to pull all stops and release a plethora of dark "Halloween" goodies. This article contains a selection of choice gothic items and economic advice to help you make the most of this time of year. Before exploring the different items for each zone, I must point out that during Halloween dark items raise in cost due to increased demand. This includes NC items, which rise in cap value often during this time. So my advice is to plan ahead...

The sun was nowhere in sight, having been shoved aside by the grumpy clouds, and Jhudora was rather happy about this. She was more than happy...

He never saw the Postal Uni deliver his stuff. It just somehow was found in the mail slot or in the front door when anyone least expected it. Talking to the Uni, all she said was that neither she nor anyone else ever delivered those things and they just somehow appeared, considering it the work of mystery and/or dark faeries. Jordy didn't care. As long as he received his stuff, he was not worried. So here he was...

"Haunted" by killing_the_queen
They say that Hubrid Nox is dead. But this isn't true. Magax knows – Nox is still there inside his head, telling him lies and trying to manipulate him, tainting his thoughts, haunting him. It wreaks havoc on his sanity – what little he has left – to know that even now, Nox can control him so completely. You were never meant to be a hero, boy. Magax presses his fingers to his temple as if he can reach in and grab the traitorous whisper. Hush, he begs, but all he gets in return is...
