The Lost Desert Exploration
LOST DESERT - The Lost Desert is an amazing place, though not for snow-painted
Neopets and Ice Boris, but otherwise you’ll just get a spot of sunburn. Don’t
forget the sunscreen! So me and my friend… um… *thinks up a name* Bobby, set out
to explore the wonders of the Lost Desert. Lost Desert? Hmm… not very lost now
Shopping. A highlight for most people and Acaras and vain Neopets. *pokes passing
Uni* But there are different- er- varieties of shops here, strange and exotic!
Let’s go see, Bobby.
Rare and exotic Battledome weapons from all over Sakhmet. Rare eh? Yes I haven’t
seen much Cobrall Daggers around *sarcasm* And the owner is a bit creepy. Those
swishing scarves make him look suspicious. And they’re swishing, THERE’S NO
WIND IN HERE!
Bobby: Look. There. Ugh.
*notices fan* Oh. Anyway, some items here are very useful in the Battledome.
Good Luck Ankh, they can give you good luck? Obviously. I wonder what the hand
painted scarab does. *throws it at owner* *hits owner* Where’d he go? Oh well,
let’s continue. That fan is cold (despite the Desert outside)
Lovely foods from the Lost Desert! Well, we see that don’t we, Bobby?
Yes. Anyway, great food in this shop, just waiting to be tasted. *tastes Sand
Orange* Hmm. Tastes like sand. Sphinx Links? Poor Sphinx, he’s already had his
nose blown off. Anyway, this stall is owned by a weirdo Grarrl wearing a short
sari-dress thing. Hmm… *runs* He looks hungry. I guess why else would he open
a Food Stall?
Desert Friends to make your Neopet smile! Aww cute! An Ettaphant! *tries to
buy* Too slow. Aww! ? Next time I’ll order over the Internet. Anyway, this lovely
shop is owned by a lovely Peophin called Peopatra. Well, you can’t really tell,
because she looks like a painting more than anything. But anyway, she still
sells cute petpets like Khnums, Anubi, Grackles, Scarabs, Ettaphants, Lyinss,
Selkets… well lot’s of petpets from the Lost Desert.
Nearby n00b: Oh, I thought they were from Terror Mountain!
Hmm. Anyway. Bye Peopatra!
Well, she’s a painting what’d you expect?
The Wisdom of the Ancients is contained upon these scrolls! They look more
like books to me. But they are very interesting stories. Well, that’s what my
pets tell me because I can’t read them :P. Anyway, owned by- some guy, don’t
know his name. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen a breed of pet like
that. *backs away* Hehe… I’ll just get takeaway…
The finest pottery and Earthenware in the land! According to my research, *puts
on fake glasses to look intelligent* she is absolutely right! Her pottery skills
Osiri: I don’t make them, I just work here.
Oh. These Lost Desert people really need an attitude check. Anyways, whoever
makes them is very very skilled indeed.
Osiri: Why thank you!
But you just said that you didn’t make them!
Osiri: I don’t make them.
So why’d you say thank you???
Osiri: Because you complimented me.
BUT YOU DON’T MAKE THEM!!!
Osiri: I make the money, but not the pottery. Gee, I thought it was obvious!
O_o Moving on…
Here we are! The newest shop in the Lost Desert. The Cybunny who owns this
shop helped Hannah on her quest to save the Boris on Terror Mountain. Let’s
go have a tour of the shop.
Cybunny: Sorry, no tours allowed. Only purchases.
Sorry I had to leave so early, but this shop isn’t very interesting and we
have to move on ?
Ahh! The games, Neopoint makers and lots of fun, the best cure for insomnia!
Lost Desert has a wide variety of games, based in the Lost Desert. Uhh… Yeah.
Legend has it that there was an ancient Geb named Sutek. He was stronger,
fitter, and cleverer than the other Gebs, and was praised by all for his courage
When he died, they built him a tomb that was the same shape as him (known as
a Gebmid). It had four triangular sides, and a square base. There are now many
Gebmids around the Lost Desert, but Sutek's was the first.
This is one of my favorite games on Neopets! On the square base of Sutek’s
Gebmid is a board of different symbols, read the instructions because this isn’t
was this article is for :P. To get the avatar you need at least 2000 points,
but to get a trophy, that’s a completely different story! Here’s some helpful
codes you can type in.
Pyramibread- Shows a possible combo.
Scarabaeus- Extra 30 seconds (once per game)
Plzsutekcanihavemoretime- Extra 30 seconds (once per game)
There are also other strange things you’ll see.
Ankh- Get this tile to the bottom and destroy the whole row horizontally, and
Scarab- Get this tile to the bottom and destroy the row vertically.
Head- Get this tile to the bottom and clear the whole board and get 500 points.
Evil bugs are attacking Neopian Protection Zone 6b, and we need your help!
Get inside your specially-designed Wocky Tank and blast those bugs!!!
I don’t really enjoy this game much, but if you like old-fashioned games you
will! It’s very similar to the 1976 arcade game Galaga. But there are a few
extras. For one, there’s protection walls in front of you. And special bonuses
come down to help you. Here they are:
Turquoise: Smaller Tank
Green: Bigger Tank
Dark Blue: Faster Tank
Yellow: Slower Tank
Orange: High-Powered tank
Pink: Extra Shield
Brown: Rebuild Walls
You’ll probably enjoy this game a lot more than me. Have fun!
Roll Up... Roll Up, its the one and only Neopets Fruit Machine. Every day you
can get one free spin, if the first two fruits match you win a prize. If all
three fruits match you win a really big prize!
Simple. Spin the wheel, and win prizes! Although you rarely win anything good,
this daily is highly recommended. *goes to spin* Stupid Aisha, you just had
to get a Tchea Fruit, not a Bagguss, is it that hard??? Anyway, you are able
to win good Battledome items, Neopoints and even paint brushes! Good luck!
Brucey B Slots
Now, since I’m under 13 I can’t access this game, but I do know it’s a slot
game. But be prepared to lose quite a few Neopoints when you play this, it’s
gambling. Good luck, you may win millions!
In this game you play Brucey B. Tap the keys to pull your opponent into the
river!!! Can you defeat the mysterious Jetsam and collect all the passwords?
I like this game, but it is EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING!!! *calms down* Bobby, can
I please have an inhaler. Thanks. *inhales* This game is very straining of your
poor little fingers. Read the instructions and you’ll get the gist of it. Stupid
Jetsam, who the heck is he? Have fun!!! *glares at Jetsam*
Remove all of the cards from the Pyramid and you can win big!!!
This is a little different to the original game of Pyramids. Actually, a lot
different. In fact, the only similarities are that it’s got the same name and
the cards are in the shape of a Pyramid! The object of this game is to clear
the Pyramid. That is the cards. This game I quite complicated, but once you
read and understand the rules, you can easily get good at it.
To get the Bonus Trophy- Clear the Pyramid twice in a row. Quite difficult.
Good luck!!! (cost 50 Neopoints to play)
Now you can play the classic Solitaire card game and win rare items and NP
while doing so!
Just like the description says! It’s exactly like the original, so I won’t
need to explain how to play. Unless, of course, you don’t know how to play Solitaire.
Just read the rules, it’s quite simple to understand. Just note, red on black
and black on red.
How to get the Bonus trophy: Fill all the Ace Piles twice in a row. Good luck!
(Costs 50 Neopoints to play)
Some of the games on Neopets can be played against another person who is online
on the Neopets site. These are called Multiplayer games. Geos is one of them.
I don’t really understand this game, so you should read the rules and work it
out for yourself.
Umm… Other things that aren’t Games or Shops O_o
Paint Brush Stall
If you can get your hands on a rare Desert Paintbrush, you can paint your Neopet
with one of these great new outfits :)
I personally think that the Desert Paint Brush is one of the best Paint Brushes
in Neopia. My favorite Desert Neopet is defiantly the Pteri. It’s so cute ?
But Desert Paint Brushes are very expensive and you are unable to buy them on
the Shop Wizard (unless someone doesn’t check the price and puts it for 199,999
Neopoints) 400k last time I checked. So good luck finding one! You can also
get Desert Pets from the Lab Ray.
Standing at the peak of a sand dune you see a tall monolith covered with strange
This is my favorite feature. Come here every 12 hours and you’ll get something.
But if you come before the 12 hours, it starts again. Battledomers are happy
with this Shrine because you can gain loads of Levels, Defence, Attack etc.
Here’s a little secret. Go to the shrine EXACTLY 55 seconds past the HOUR and
you’ll get a dubloon. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone!
Usurper is now over, thanks for playing!
This was a logic puzzle a few years back, just like the Guildmaster’s Dinner
was going to be before it was canceled. You had to work out who ate what, who
did what thing with bad manners, how many courses who ate, and who murdered
King Coltzan. The first 10 people to get it correct would get 2 million Neopoints
each. The first 100 would get a magical artifact from the Lost Desert.
Brucey B’s War Tent
If you have no idea what is going on here... you should read the story of Brucey
B and the Lucky Coin!!!
Brucey B! Pfft! What a show-off! This place was to enrol in the Lost desert
War a few years back. Just like the Hannah and the Ice Caves War and the Meridell
Pages to colour in ^_^
Lost Desert Scratch Card Kiosk
The newest feature to the Lost Desert! You know about the Scratchcard Kiosks
*sigh* *explains to Bobby*
These ones are the cheapest, 500 Neopoints. You can buy one every 6 hours just
like all the others. Some prizes:
Hand Painted Scarab
There are more, but that’s all I know.
A helpful calculator
I left this one for last because it’s a bit silly :P And you all know what
a calculator does right? Right!
*sigh**explains to Bobby*
Well, this is trainee reporter, matjake44_3, signing out! Goodbye!
