- You wake up one sunny morning and glance at the calendar before you shuffle downstairs for some breakfast. Halfway down the stairs, you dash back up again and double check the calendar. Today is a special day in Brightvale! Why spend your day anywhere else?! You hurry over to Brightvale before it's too late!
||Stop right there! *reads off of a card* Welcome, visitor, to Brightvale! Gesture toward the castle. My name is half circle, insert your name here, half circle. Before you enter, you must pass a test to prove that you are indeed wise enough to join the scholars inside. Give visitor a penetrating stare. Do you have what it takes to enter Brightvale?
||Hm, I'm not sure if that was how you were supposed to read that card. But what do I know? This is why we are guarding Brightvale from the outside after all... Look, visitor, I know you are eager to go in, but Brightvale has more than its full capacity of visitors right now, so you will need to finish this quiz before you enter. Why don't you try walking around to refresh your wits and such?
- The Draik guard hands you a quiz then turns to greet the next person. You sneak around both guards and enter Brightvale anyway. They don't even seem to notice! What you notice, however, is that everyone appears to be dressed up in Brightvale colours! Even the Clothing Shop is advertising a brand new dress dedicated to Brightvale's special day!
Only five peasants' life savings for this one!
- It looks like the Lenny Conundrum is quite popular in a place like Brightvale. In fact, several shops display the following message: A new Lenny Conundrum competition has begun. The answer to last week's was 8. 9450 people guessed the correct answer earning themselves 212 NP each.
- An overexcited blue Meerca rushes up to you to tell you that this week's PPL award has been given to the Blobikins. (Her Petpet was one such species.) She tells you her Blobikins' name is Winston. You congratulate him as well as Nial, Amoeba, Jelly Pie, Oskar, and all the others.
- In your attempt to escape the scary Blobikins owners, you stumble into the Brightvale Armoury. You nearly knock over their new display of tunics and get kicked out by the angry shopkeeper.
- You decide to escape Brightvale a while by hiding in the Kreludor Cave Of The Week. This one is by karmacow and is called 'Into The Rabbit Hole', you hear.
- Directly outside the cave stands Commander Gormos. You wonder if he will demand some sort of tax from you, but he just states that he is Better Than You. You are not very certain about what exactly he is better at but you agree with him anyway. (Or you could challenge him and prove him wrong!)
- Your attention is briefly taken away by the latest mote in the Brightvale Motery. That angry looking one might be a little nicer if it was fed every once in a while...
- It looks like the latest display in the Art Gallery is all about celebrating the Discovery of Brightvale! You spend a few hours admiring all the art before you return home.
- You settle down to sort through some Neomails you've received as well a new print containing the latest Poems (such as 'Longing for Green and Gold' and 'Brightvale's Wisdom') when you realize there is a paper in your pocket. You open it to reveal the quiz the Brightvale guard had given you earlier. Curious, you decide to read its contents. Inside is the one question you would have had to answer correctly to enter Brightvale through a more honest means:
: Who is the wisest king in all of Neopia?
Take your time and answer correctly in the space below!
Hint: It's this fellow!
- LAST CHANCE! This Sunday is your last chance to watch the delightful Springabees at work in our latest two-stage MiniMME (Mini Mysterious Morphing Experiment). Hurry in to the NC Mall to get your MiniMME today! What will your item morph into? Find out by visiting the NC Mall!

The food is gone and there's only a drop of fresh water, but I'm still struggling to remain calm. I can feel my panic rising up in my throat, but I'll keep it pushed down. Panic is the enemy, and I have to keep a cool head. Just as I'm thinking this, I feel my boat begin to move a little faster. Sitting up, I realize I've been caught in a current, and I see an island rising before me like a beacon of hope.
