The Other Side of Neopia FAQ
The other side of Neopia! At last the thing we have all been waiting for has arrived!
But are we pleased with what we see. At first, the only addition is Altador, the
great land of Yooyuball, the land where we play to bestow honor for eternity on
our favorite place in Neopia. Isn’t that all we need to be happy? Or we deserve
more after waiting for all of these years, staring half-heartedly at a 2-D diagram
on a buzzing screen? There are many questions to be asked, and I will answer them
Question 1: Exactly how many new lands are there?
So far I have noted Altador, which we have all already heard of, but wait,
what is that in the mist? Why, it seems to be a NEW ISLAND. The name? Lutari
Island. As I discovered this new land I jumped for joy in my chair, clicked
on it, but it seems that a thick fog hides everything. Why could this be? Can
I only see through if I have a Lutari? Do I need a special new map? Or do I
smell a plot coming on. Yes, that is right; I believe there may be a plot in
all of this. But we can’t take my word for it, for this question, we will have
to wait and see what the Neopets team has in store for us. Another thing that
comes to my attention is the fact that this Island is not listed below the map
along with all of the other worlds. Why don’t you take a look and see if you
see any interesting things? Don’t worry; I’ll be here, waiting for you to return.
Question 2: Why hasn’t the Neopets team finally put Jelly World on the map?
Jelly World? I have no idea what you are talking about! Maybe you have it mixed
up with somewhere else? Maybe you are just lost in the desert and haven’t eaten
for days. If so, I won’t blame you for asking such an absurd question.
Question 3: Why can I see the Brain Tree’s head from outer space?
It might be because people keep feeding the tree with knowledge. With over
a million users and possibly very intelligent petpets, it’s no surprise that
its leaves have mutated into a giant tangle of brains. I myself refuse to feed
the tree with knowledge because I believe that the tree is secretly giving out
information to the Meepits. (Don’t tell them I said that!)
Question 4: LYKE OMG LYKE HOW DID U LKYE GET 2 OF UR PETS PAINTED!?!?!?
COZ I LYKE WANT ALL OF MY PETS PAINTED GIVE ME A MILLION NEOPOINTS! BTW CAN
I BE UR NEOFRIEND????
Oh, sorry, a noob must have invaded my computer while I took a break to the
little author’s room.
And the answer is? Sorry, I couldn’t understand due to lack of grammar.
Question 5: Do I need to go and get my eyes checked or do there seem to
be little cities on some islands that I can’t click on?
I do believe there are some what seem to be little clusters of buildings. This
is yet again another mystery. I can infer a few things, though. Maybe other
little areas dedicated to certain pets, for example: WOCKY ISLAND! (Hint hint
nudge nudge.) Neopets could be planning to unveil whole new plots and themes.
Otherwise, they may just remain little areas to fill in the vast amount of sea.
Question 6: Are there any ways to get to these little cities?
First of all, I would like to poke the last sentence of the answer I gave for
Question number 5. They might not add up to anything, but they might become
new worlds, or worlds waiting for you to discover them. To help show you what
I mean, here are a few examples: Most of you, unless you are VERY new to Neopets,
should know that Altador was at first a hidden land. If you go to the Faerie
City and look at one of the towers, you will see a shining light, which you
used to have to click on to get to Altador. Nowadays the back of the map shows
an easy route to Altador, though.
Those of you that have been on Neopets a little longer might remember the
dead end tunnel. It didn’t turn out to have a dead end, did it? In contrast,
it lead to a world much taken for granted nowadays: Tyrannia. So look around
Neopia, maybe you’ll find some new hidden places.
Question 7: I’m so happy that there’s another side of Neopia! Aren’t you?
Yes we are all very excited about this. Now could you stop asking pointless
questions so we can move on?
Question 8: Why is there a big V on the Virtupets space station? What are
all of those red lines?
There is a V on the space station because Virtupets begins with a V. The red
lines are a mystery to me, though; perhaps they are hallways lit with red lights?
All I know is that I’d be more concerned about the bolts of electricity running
through the V.
Question 9: Why is everything the same inside the cities?
How much can you expect the Neopets team to do at once? They have a lot of
stuff to deal with, like dodging users who want to whack them with big, wooden
mallets. They also have the Altador cup staff tournaments to practice for, and
play, so cut them a little slack!
Question 10: What’s with the funky border?
I am guessing with this subject Neopets decided to make it seem more map like.
There’s also a little compass in the corner that lets you spin the world around,
which is pretty helpful.
Question 11: What is in that spaceship, and why does it keep flying around
Probably satellite television, providing all neopets with something to watch
on a rainy day. Other than that, it could be Sloth’s new spaceship.
Question 12: Why is there nothing on the southern pole of Neopia?
There’s nothing there because everything and everyone would fall off into space,
duh. It’s really probably just something that Neopets put there to take up space.
Question 13: How can there be polar caps right by a desert?
Beats me. Please remember that this is the Internet. Anything is possible.
Why, the other week, I managed to hold my breath long enough to explore some
old ruins down in Maraqua. Funny, isn’t it?
Well, I think that’s about all of the questions I can answer. I hope all of
you have enjoyed reading this. If you have any more concerns, feel free to neomail
me. Now go and explore the other side of Neopia!!!
