Codestones are special rocks that are carved with specific runes. On the Neopets webstie, they are a special class of item. There are two cagetories of codestones: basic and red. Basic codestones are tan in colour and are used to pay for training at Techo Master's Training School on Mystery Island. Red codestones are red in colour and are used to pay for training at the Secret Ninja Training School.

Basic codestones first appeared in Neopia as part of the Arrival of Virtupets plot. During this plot, users were implored to bring one million codestones to the Island Mystic so he could decrypt Dr. Sloth's letter. Red codestones were first released along with the Secret Ninja Training School on March 13, 2004.

Varieties[edit]

There are ten types of basic codestone. They all shake in the player's inventory. Ryshu explains that, like a student before he has found his purpose, they are restless. In the Training School, there is a secret garden where they can be put in their proper place and be at rest. Each type of basic codestone bears a different rune:

Obtaining Codestones[edit]

Both basic codestones and red codestones are not sold at any official Neopian shops. Instead, users can obtain both types of codestone by fighting in the Battledome or by playing Key Quest. Basic and red codestones are also tradable, meaning that they can be purchased from other users using the Auction House, Trading Post, or user shops

In addition to this, basic codestones are sometimes given out by certain games of chance, such as the Deserted Tomb and Tombola. Users are also rewarded with a single, randomly-selected basic codestone each time they receive the following random event:
