In a growing trend that has been around since the early days of Neopia, we seem to have lost our memories or experiences of our very first neopet.

You know? The ones we created, The ones we named, The ones we just knew were the ‘coolest’. Needless to say these pets were probably among the most common.

Of course in life we are always left wanting more, this time fueled by the beautiful, elite and stronger looking neopets badged ‘limited edition’ and ‘restricted’. At the time we weren’t even really sure what this meant, We did know, however that we had to get our hands on them.

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.

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.

Owning a Neopet gives a person a sense of respect for all the non-human critters out there, regardless of what they own.

If you live alone, playing with your neopet is a great way to unwind at the end of the day or if you have a family, owning a neopet sets guidelines of responsibility for the young.

At the end of the day, having a neopet is always fulfilling.

Choosing a neopet can be a difficult process.

By choosing a neopet, one must have the appropriate amount of time, a strong budget, and be able to spend enough time with the neopet.
