Why the wise old king is so wise

When I was walking through Brightvale, thinking of all sorts of things, I wondered how it came the Wise old king was so wise.

Could it be that he read all the books? Or maybe even more? I decided to ask him.

So I went to the castle, and noticed that he was out for breakfast. I asked to a guard when he would be back, but that would take an hour or so, he said.

I said that I didn’t want to wait that long, and he asked why I wanted to see him. “It’s about a question,” I responded, “but, ehm, do you know someone who knows the king really, really good?”

I started playing Neopets about 2 years ago. It became very addictive very quickly, AND WITH GOOD REASON! The site was INCREDIBLY fun. I started out like most Neopians, getting very excited when I hit my first 10,000 nps (which we all NOW know isn’t much) and was able to get my first painted pet, a mutant Grundo named hank_6698. Those days were great, I couldn’t wait to get home and play Neopets. And then, I discovered the discussion boards.

The discussion boards made Neopets THAT MUCH BETTER. Meeting great friends such as sugarypixiestix and many others made my Neopets experience that much more enjoyable. Little did I know things would not stay that way.

Do you have a neopet? If you don’t you should.

Neopets offer companionship and loyalty, something humans aren’t 100% capable of.

You know how when you go over to an older relative’s house, and they reminisce about the “good old days”? Well, older Neopians can do the same, only in this case, “old” would be about three or four years old. A person is able to go to the neoboards and see the current issues Neopia is experiencing plots, avatars, new ideas, etc.

Well, back in my day, Neopia was much different. There was no such thing as Roo Island, Kiko Lake, or even the Deserted Fairground. Neopia was much smaller back then. The founding of Meridell was a huge deal. The Neoboards were abuzz with talk of a medieval world. Could it be possible? The Neopets team made a medieval world! What will the pets look like? Will a paint brush come with it? Those were all the topics concerning Meridell. Then came the war. Everyone on the boards had chosen a side, Darigan or Meridell. We all know how the war ended. Meridell won, and Lord Darigan had been vanquished. And yes, this was before the second Meridell war soon after with Lord Kass.
