"Pay It Forward" by purpledaisychain
Being a newbie in Neopia isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Between my little yellow Aisha JessaBlessa (Jess for short) and I, we barely had two neopoints to rub together. Usually our days involved little more than a tour around Neopia, visiting the tombola and taking a chance at the Poogle races. But every so often we struck out on an adventure, something unusual or exciting…
Our biggest adventure started out like an ordinary day – at the giant omelette, scrounging for a spot of breakfast.
“You know, I’m not entirely convinced this is hygienic.” Jess commented, staring up at the mound of egg and cheese in front of us. “I mean it’s out in the sun all day roasting away and we just go up to it and pull a piece off? How do I know it’s not going to give me some illness?”
“Jess it’s magic.” I explained patiently. “But by all means, if you’d rather starve, I’m quite happy to walk away.”
“Hey let's not be too hasty…” Jess replied quickly. I laughed as her stomach gave a huge rumble. Sounded like hunger had won out over any concerns she had. Together we took a few steps forward and tore a handful off the giant omelette. Cautiously, we gave it a quick sniff – despite all my reassurances that it was safe we had got a rotten omelette in the past. Today it looked like our luck was in though; it smelt like bacon.
Trouble. Habib wished that they were facing Trouble, the blue Babyca, now. Unfortunately, trouble in this case was three dark faeries. Not one. Not two. Three!
|Advent Calendar - The Items Worth Keeping! |
Even though thousands of each item has been distributed to the community over the years - a handful of items have appreciated in value and now cost a pretty Neopoint. With the help of the Super Shop Wiz, we’ve scoured through the records and have listed the top ten most prized and expensive items of the calendar’s past.
|20 Things To Do this Month of Celebrating|
The Month of Celebrating approaches and with it comes a warm (or cold!) atmosphere between fellow Neopians, followed by several activities of merrymaking and gift-giving. There are just so many things to do all month long, so I've decided to create a list to help you and your friends make the absolute most out of this merry month. You can choose to do one activity per day, do everything in one go, or do everything again and again every day!
|Neoquest II: The Forgotten Heroine: Part One|
Arthur was a Red Bruce who had gotten caught up in the Neoquest hype a bit later than the other children, but he too enjoyed playing Neoquest II. Eventually though, what happens to most gamers happened to him too, he found that the game’s plot was hackneyed, and repetitive, and it felt more like work than playing, so he quit in the middle of his Evil Mode run. Several years later, when all of that was a distant memory, he passed by a store one day and something displayed on the window caught his eye. It looked like a Neoquest game, but the title and cover were different, it said; Neoquest II: The Forgotten Heroine.
|Meegla and Fargon's Not-So-Intergalactic Adventures: Part Eight|
It was now incredibly late. Where most rescue missions would be aided by the cover of dark, these eight neopets felt a growing trepidation; they would soon be facing off against an organization that thrived under the cover of darkness. The young Desert Scarabs filed out into the snow, decked in winter gear loaned to them by the current captain of the operation. Their entire bodies shook with the force of the cold, unused to the Terror Mountain climate after a lifetime spent in the hot Lost Desert sun. But they must persevere.
