Finding Your Great Guild

As luck would have it, I clicked the link too quickly and found myself on the Guild Board instead! Instead of clicking the back button, however, I stopped to look at the guilds that were being advertised as fond memories of being part of guilds throughout the years flashed in my mind. This, I thought, was where my Neopets adventure was going to take me.

The Neopian Pizza Critic

Good Day to all you Pizzaroo fanatics, Crust connoisseurs, and other aficionados of the wonderful world of pizza! I have dedicated my entire existence in Neopia to carefully sampling and critiquing all of the wonderful, unique, and in some cases downright bizarre flavors of pizza that can be found all over Neopia.

Who Is This Topsi, and What Ever Happened To Zaira?

On Day 7 of the Y18 Festival of Neggs the festivities took a turn for the intriguing when Topsi was found buying weapons in Shenkuu. Eyewitnesses said he had been "muttering something about needing a new Katana." It reminds us that we know so little about Topsi, and there's a lot of suspicion on all sides.

"Create Your Own Adventure" by cosmicfire918
I always suspected that my Grundo had a sadistic streak. Years of serving as a commander in Dr. Sloth’s galactic marine corps will probably do that to you. But my hunch was confirmed the day Dark_breed_Hyren brought home an Adventure Generator. I was sprawled on one of the library couches in our Neohome, reading, when the little blue guy walked in and spread a scroll of parchment across the table. He looked it up and down and nodded satisfactorily, and uncorked a bottle of ink. Hyren never was much of a writer, preferring to let his swords do the talking, so this peaked my interest. “What are you doing?” I asked from behind my copy of Destruct-O-Match Basics—that fiendish avatar keeps eluding me. “Making a Neoadventure,” he said, dipping his pen. I quirked an eyebrow. “That’s new.” “I had an idea for one,” he said as he started to write. Sitting up, I said, “Can I play it?” “Sure,” he said, “when it’s done.” And he wouldn’t let me or his siblings so much as peek at it before then. For the better part of a week I tried to distract myself with reading, housework, and Frosted Uni Cookies. Lots and lots of Frosted Uni Cookies. Finally, as I sat at the kitchen table on a rainy afternoon nibbling at a strawberry Frosted Uni Cookie and contemplating how great life was, Hyren pulled out the chair across from mine and nudged the scroll toward me. “Okay, I think I’ve got it pretty much figured out,” he said. Glancing aside, he cleared his throat. “I, uh, could use your help with the editing. I’m not really one for prose.” He paused. “And I kind of want to submit this to the Adventure Spotlight, so it needs to look its best.” “No problem,” I said, wiping the crumbs off my fingers to unroll the parchment.

Pigments and Figments: Part Two
Percy whimpered, this time hiding behind me. I was torn between hugging him to comfort him or smirking at Martha. The hugging half of me won. “You did always tell me to face my fears,” Percy gave me a wry, trembling smile.

Clouds Over Cogham: Part Seven
In wintertime, and often in the surrounding autumn and spring, darkness will swallow the land, and the rainclouds will take over. It's never a bad thing, though. Even when the skies turn black and the fog grows blinding, it's a comforting embrace.
