Well how about this. I think Neopets is unfair to a lot of people outside of the US! Like me. I’m from New Zealand.

First thing. A lot of those sponsor deals and those “Get 1,000 NP a day!” things are worthless. All of them are “sign up with our sponsor” and such while practically every single one of them I’ve seen have ONLY been for US residents. Granted, it’s not a big amount of NP but it still seems very excluding.

Timing for things doesn’t always seem too bad since things are spread out throughout the day/night. but one of the other things that annoys me is the merchandise. I’ve seen some really cute things in the merchandise, that I’d love to get my hands on.. Things in the wish list – but none of those items are available here. In fact there seems to be rather little of Neopets available here. I don’t know if that will eventually change but I saw some items that are listed ‘limited edition’ or whatever – does that mean they’ll not be available here because their stock all went to the US? I don’t know.

Meepits are probably the most feared Neopian things. Many are obsessed with their hypnotizing eyes and fluffy appearance. I am NOT obsessed with Meepits, nor do I fear them. They are just another ordinary petpet to me. They are easy to get obsessed with though, and I can see why many people are. Here are some facts about Meepits and other obsessions of many Neopians.

There are many things to get obsessed with in Neopia, and Meepits are just one of them. People can get a little overwhelmed with all the great things here. Try to stick to one topic. It gets a little overwhelming when you see a Meepit-themed shop, a Darigan-themed user lookup, or when each one of your pets has a different world-themed pet lookup. The next tip will help you narrow it down to just one.

Illusen by cjcooliogurl

Illusen. Sure shes poked a hole in our wallets. A hole that keeps getting bigger and bigger. But now that her quests are gone what’s going to happen to her? To her quests? Here’s my theory.

Well, shes just going to disappear why not? Easy. Illusen isn’t going to disappear. Shes a faerie. A living faerie (OK if you’re confused just remember that this is Neopets. Play along.) So, now you’re thinking, Well, if you’re so smart, whats going to happen to her?

Its really quite simple. Not including Meridell, there are nine worlds. Why doesn’t she go to one of those places, rebuild her Glade, and live happily ever after again?? Sounds good to me. But which one will she choose?? If you think about it, its a hard choice. Where should I go? Here’s where and where not she should take her quests to and (what I think) a pretty good explanation of it

I saw on Pink Poogle Toy the message about the smoothie promotion starting 9/16. Luckily, that was my day off. I went to Jamba on Thursday morning and ask the lady behind the counter for a “Tigerfruit Smoothie”. She looked at me like I was crazy. She asked what it was and I told her that I saw on a website that there was going to be a Neopets/Jamba Juice promotion starting that day. She told me that she had no idea what I was talking about.

My brother also plays Neopets. I had called him several days prior to the 16th to tell him about the promotion. I called him after I left Jamba and told him they had no idea. He went later that day and asked for one as well. The lady told him he was the second person to ask for 1 that day! The lady went and asked the manager. The manager said that the “promotion” would start the next day, Friday the 17th. I was okay with this because we have been hammered with hurricanes and I figured they pushed it back.

One of my favorite games on Neopets is NeoQuest. I haven’t played NeoQuest 2 yet, however. Neoquest is a simple RPG-Adventure system with a grid where you use a compass to determine your direction.

The game is entirely HTML, besides SWF music files, meaning dial up users be wary. You will do a lot of page loading on your adventures, and battles.

The battle system is very simple and effective, allowing you to gain skill points and put them into skills, weapons and armor etc.

The story is meant for those about 16 – 17, not that there are any “bad” words, it’s just that younger children may have trouble figuring out some of the larger and more obscure words.
