A Place for all our wonderfully gangly bugs

You're travelling through the Lost Desert, your reasons are your own, when a mountain appears on the horizon; at first, you think it's the beginning of the Shenkuu mountains but as you continue towards it you notice that it's a single land formation and not a chain.
Instead of pulling out your map to pinpoint your location, you continue toward the mountain; mile after mile melts away until you are close enough to hear... what is that you're hearing? Singing? The clanging of metal on metal?
Odd, you weren't aware of any inhabitants living this far into the Lost Desert. With a shrug, you continue on to the mountain and to your surprise, you meet a human about half way there - it looks as if ve had been waiting for you.

Hello! I'm Mags, your friendly neighborhood Ruki expert; I will be your guide for the rest of your stay. Ve extends vir hand slowly, you take it and shake it once before releasing and shuffling backwards a bit.

Exactly where am I? You ask with your eyes fixated on the looming mountain.

Mags tips vir head to the side. You don't know?
You shake your head and their eyes light up. My dear friend, you have stumbled upon an ancient Ruki civilization simply known as the Colony; very few are able to find the Colony without assistance from guides, like myself.
Ve claps you on the back with a smile. Would you like to explore your new discovery?

For the first time today, a huge grin splits your face and you nod. Of course!

Very well, follow me.
(Click the Mags' last response or click Enter at the top!)

Mags leads you

up to the mountain but instead of ascending the steep slopes, ve takes you to a cave that you hadn't noticed before.
With one of your hands on vir arm, ve brings you into the cave; you are greeted by darkness, however, Mags seems to know where ve is going so you follow silently. After what seemed like hours of wandering, a light appears at the end of the tunnel.

The light is blinding. Your guide stops suddenly and you run into vir back. Sorry. You mumble.
Ve giggles and waits as you rub your eyes; as soon as you can see properly once more, your jaw drops in awe. Before you lies an enormous city of obsidian houses and crystal towers as far as the eye could see. Everywhere Rukis are bustling about, some were flying while others walked along the streets paved with glittering gems.

Welcome to the Colony

Howdy! Let me reintroduce myself, I'm Mags - Ruki enthusiast and founder of this directory! My love for Rukis and my desire to display them to Neopia inspired me to start this directory, not to mention I couldn't find an active Ruki directory anywhere.
The Colony was opened to the public on January 10th, 2013 with 18 permanent Rukis already listed - all of which were mine; but steadily as the day continued, more and more Rukis joined the ranks of The Colony. I am beyond happy to have them all listed. January 23rd (2013), I added a Stuck Ruki Section so everyone can find their perfectly named Ruki.
I hope to add more things to The Colony, like a "Dream Ruki" section and a Spare PB Clothes section!

Information

Before you take a tour of The Colony, let's go over some rather important* information:

The Rukis are listed underneath their current paint and categorized under one of the following types:

Each type corresponds with a different color; any Rukis in the green boxes belong to me, just so you know!
Example:

Larva

Honeypot

Worker

Soldier

Weaver

Royalty

My Ruki

* Or, at least, what I think is important

03.15.14- Sorry for the long absence xP I had a job for about 2 weeks (it was temp so I knew it wasn't going to last long) and I didn't really have time for Neo but now I'm back and there will be a sweep next week. +1 Ruki

02.04.14- *holds up a broom* I'm sweeping today. *brick'd* That was terrible, I apologize for my lameness. Just a quick sweep today and this weekend I'll add more Rukis to the stuck page. I'm still working on the Spare PB clothing page, I'm not sure how to go about it, especially with the layout I have now - there would be a lot of scrolling and that's never any fun or there would be a lot of links to click, which isn't much fun either. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. -2 Rukis +2 Ruki
02.01.14- There's another current Ruki directory called The Hive! It's ran by my friend Wings, it went down for a bit so I removed the link from the sister directory area but now that it's up and running again, the link has returned! So go check out The Hive and get your Ruki (and/or buzz) listed today and The Hive has adroable Ruki adoptables, go get one right now. Shoo, go! 8D

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my Ruki(s) listed?
Simply fill out the form below (6 questions) and send it in! If you need help with the "catergory" part, refer back to the Info Page and please don't change the subject.

I have a directory/website/etc, would you like to be Affiliates?
Of course! You can never have to many affies! :D
Fill out the following form in an nm and I'll add you right away! Please don't change the subject~

Can I still list my Ruki if s/he is a labbie/lab rat?
Yes, you can. Since I do sweeps on almost a daily basis, I can move your Ruki to the appropriate color or remove them altogether. If your Ruki changes species, a nm letting me know would be fabulous but it's not required.

Why aren't your Rukis listed in the same categories as everyone else's?
I want my Rukis to stand out, is that a bad thing? xD
But seriously, I'm not sure why I separated my Rukis in the first place; it was probably because the site is drowning in shades of brown and yellow and a little contrast color was needed.

Oh, looks like you find a hidden page! Congrats! C:
I use this page to store the info needed to find stuck Rukis via search engine, so there's nothing special here but if you want, you can search for stuck Rukis on your own and then neomail me. Just click the envelope below and list the wn'd and/or painted Rukis you find - please don't change the subject.

Sister Directories

The Colony has 2 sister directories, The Mutant Mansion* and The Hive. These Directory was created by my closest neofriends, Sneaky and Wings! Check 'em out and get your pets listed!

*The Mutant Mansion has been taken down, Sneaky is working on getting her accounts back and I'm sure as soon as she does, her directory will be working once again.
