Tails of the Crypt - The Tale of the Toymaker

His workshop, for the most part, was out of the sight of the general population, and it was generally deserted. Then, one day, during a particularly harsh snowstorm, a Neopet named Bob strayed off from their hiking trail and stumbled onto the first lit building they saw. A knock on the door shattered the silence, making Edward jump out of his skin.

Of Portals and Faeryllium

“Wraithland,” Stealth said, questioningly. The brown Grundo was fixated on the twitching of the strange Wocky’s left eye. “And you’re sure this guidebook will get me there?” “Certainly. Though the more money is left in this jar, the more likely it will be that the portal appears on that day,” the Wocky said with a cackle while rubbing his palms together.

Evil?

“What's going on here?” she asked a tall Red Kyrii nearby her.

“TNT have just put up a notice,” he told her, “about the portals that have been appearing. Some people think it's a plot.”

The Parchment Treaty

Queen Fyora was waiting in her personal chambers for them with several rolled parchments in her hand. Queen Fyora greeted them, "Hello, I have desperate need of a stealthy messenger Neopet, a Neopet with dimensional abilities, and a Wraith Neopet. Sarah, can you and your pets deliver these parchments to the Wraith King Aroyf in Aipoen?"

Usuki Singing Stars #33: Patricia's Project

“And I already decided on what our project is going to be: a Wraithland diorama!”

“Boring,” chimed Scary.

Patricia eagerly opened her notebook and showed Scary her designs for the diorama. “I was thinking we could use a shoe box and paint the inside with black or purple paint. Then we can recreate wraith pets with clay–”

Friends of Two Worlds

It was late at night, so the streets not far from their hideout were bursting with activity. Probably a bit early to tell spooky stories, but Grace had the undivided attention of the two boys.

“So?” Teaser interrupted her, “It's not like a wave could get all the way here to Wraithland”.

Leap of Wraith

"The two of you may share a special bond," said Ziva, gently squeezing Nyx's shoulder. "But Umber Wisp is still a Wraith, Nyx. No one has ever understood them completely."

Headlines


"Evil?" by reiqua
Adelaide had always been regarded as a bit of an oddity by her classmates. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that she always wore a tin foil hat. Or maybe it was because she spent most of her class time staring aimlessly out of the window. Perhaps her unusual habit of leaving origami Cybunnies everywhere she went was a factor. But regardless of what it was, she was unanimously considered “weird”. People always said that Adelaide had her head in the clouds. Which was fitting, really, because she was painted cloud. No-one really disliked her. But no-one would voluntarily start up a conversation with her either. That is, not unless they felt they had time to listen to long stories about how Queen Fyora had secretly stolen Brucey B's lucky coin, and the way the Petpet Protection League were taking insufficient action to prevent the exploitation of Tigersquashes... One Friday morning, Adelaide was passing through Neopia central on her way to purchase some stamps. She was absent-mindedly bouncing a yo-yo as she walked. In her other hand, she held a book entitled Teeth Sharpening Techniques. She seemed to be totally immersed in her book. If Adelaide hadn't been quite so oblivious to the world, she would've noticed a clump of 'pets just up ahead. They were all clustered around the notice-board, forming a road block.

Conspiracies of Crossing Over
Crossing between Neopia and it's darker counter part, Aiopen, has long been considered as an undertaking fraught with risks and danger. Some even claim that Wraithland, the version of Faerieland reportedly filled with wraiths in Aiopen, is simply fear-mongering as a result of the Faerie's Ruin incident some years ago.

The Adventures of Trina: The Glass Key: Part Seven
Burly creatures were digging in the snow, their long, yellow claws flinging powder into the air. Their feet were massive enough to crush any enemy. Their teeth were so long, she almost mistook them as tusks. Camouflaged by their overgrown tufts of white fur, from their ankles to their forehead, where twisted horns reached for the sky, their red pupils burned into her mind.

Venn and the Isolated Island: Part One
It was yet another average morning for Venn, a Camouflage Gelert. He climbed out of bed, stretched, put on his brown shorts and yellow scarf, and headed to the Neohome's dining room for breakfast. There they ate the typical Neopian meal, consisting mainly of omelets and jelly. After this came probably the most suspenseful part of the day: the journey to the Secret Laboratory, where Venn would be zapped.
