Quote of the Week


Located in the sunny land of Altador, stood the ancient archives building. For ages, the now decaying structure had concealed the famous lore of Altador. The lore told the story of how Altador was founded, and about each council member of the city. Without the archives, the city's history would be lost. How Altador came to be could then be rewritten by someone with malicious intentions, such as The Darkest Faerie herself.


Pixel Pets: Experiences of an 8-Bit Neopian



The other day, my Koi asked me a difficult question. "How come all the other pets have so much higher resolution than me?" he said, his Pantone 292 dorsal fin drooping in a frown. "I feel so blue." Stumped, I didn't know how to answer him. The truth is I hadn't thought about the origin of my fuzzy little Koi, let alone his spectre-like swamp gas sister (that's a story for another day). The little Koi and I had found each other in the Pound, both pre-formed and accepting of each other's unknown stories. But I knew that the day would eventually come when my young pet would wish, from a sense of curiosity and desire for belonging, to know the nature of their history.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Off to Work We Go



Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work We Go If you’re like me, you’d do anything for your Neopets. Buying them toys, curing them when they’re sick, feeding them when they’re hungry, taking them to Kelp (are you SURE you don’t want to take any leftovers this time? Welp, that’s 60k down the drain…). And while we love and take care of our pets, there is nothing wrong with asking them to start earning their keep! While many of us older Neopians already have real-life jobs of our own to pay for our Neopets Premium, our Neopets have the opportunity to grab some jobs of their own through Faerieland’s Employment Agency.

Jurples!: How to Become an Ace at Word Poker


Word Poker is a very unique game which combines vocabulary skills with poker-style scoring. You are given eight letters and one minute during which you must form as many words as possible from the letters given. At first glance, this game seems simple, but when you look at the scores on the high score table, it is quite challenging to reach those levels! Here are some tips and practice methods you can use to improve your score at Word Poker.

"All the colors of the invisible" by mehohara
"Have a great first day of school, sweetheart! And remember, don’t let anyone bump you, okay?” That was a typical phrase of my mother. She always said that to my sister, and now she’s telling me the same. But she should realize how hard it is not to be bumped by others. Because the others can’t see me. Because I’m invisible. Not the metaphorical invisible; the real invisible. Some Neopets are pink, some are orange, and I’m invisible. That’s how things are. My entire family is invisible, a big and traditional family of invisible Neopets. Our kind of Neopet usually interact with our own people because, well, it’s quite hard to interact with someone you can’t properly assume where they are. And I had an idea that my first day at school would be anything but great. “Whatever, mom”, I answered. I just wanted to be done with this and walk to school. “Don’t be so hard, James. Jessa managed to have some fun, didn’t you, darling?”

"Mars & Ruby" by gwizneo
Once upon a time there was a wooden boy called Mars Wolf. He was on the way to see his cousin Ruby Gil, when he decided to take a short cut through Faerieland. It wasn't long before Mars got lost. He looked around, but all he could see were trees. Nervously, he felt into his bag for his favourite toy, Dolly, but Dolly was nowhere to be found! Mars began to panic. He felt sure he had packed Dolly. To make matters worse, he was starting to feel hungry. Unexpectedly, he saw a fuzzy Vandagyre dressed in a purple top hat disappearing into the trees. "How odd!" thought Mars. For the want of anything better to do, he decided to follow the peculiarly dressed Vandagyre. Perhaps it could tell him the way out of the forest. Eventually, Mars reached a clearing. He found himself surrounded by houses made from different sorts of food. There was a house made from peas, a house made from chips, a house made from chocolates and a house made from fruit gums. Nobody replied.

"Hello Fellow Traveler" by trishabeakens
Located in the sunny land of Altador, stood the ancient archives building. For ages, the now decaying structure had concealed the famous lore of Altador. The lore told the story of how Altador was founded, and about each council member of the city. Without the archives, the city's history would be lost. How Altador came to be could then be rewritten by someone with malicious intentions, such as The Darkest Faerie herself. Thankfully, Finneus, a blue elderly Lenny, managed the archives ever since the heroes of Altador created it. The well-respected scholar made sure every sheet of paper and book were kept in order and organized alphabetically. Without the man, no Neopian would be able to read about the city or learn of its lore. On this particular warm day, the Lenny politely asked the queen of Altador, Nera, to write down her own history. In all the years of living in the city, the light brown Xweetok never wrote down her own tale. Her husband Altador wrote his, the rest of the council and citizens had as well, but not Nera.
