Quote of the Week


When the sun brought with it a new day, it did not blind Cathton as it so often did late risers. A venerable oak’s branches spread over the blue Cybunny’s bedroom window and caught the morning light in its leaves, and much of the light that managed to escape was obscured by several vines that crawled over the glass pane. Cathton was already used to waking up like this. He sat up in his bed, just in time for his mother to enter the room with a bundle of books in her hands and a smile on her face. The royal Cybunny carefully stepped over a King Terask Plushie that had been left lying amidst in front of a model of Faerie Palace built with interlocking blocks. “Happy birthday, Cathton!” said Elesia brightly while he slid his feet into his silk slippers.

Kiko Lake: The Worst Altador Cup Team



This message was brought to you by: the Anti-Kiko Editorial. Help us get rid of the threat of Kiko Lake with our petitions, spread the word of Kiko Lake’s team and your interactions with them, and help us by giving an interview. We always appreciate it. Dear reader, I must ask, have you been to the Altador Cup? Of course you have, everyone has been to at least one, and if not, shame on you! Anyway, back to the topic at hand. If you have gone to the Altador Cup, you’re probably familiar with the teams, ranging from Meridell, to Roo Island, to even Darigan Citadel. But here, I’m going to focus on the most unpleasant of all the teams: Kiko Lake. These scoundrels have been going around unchecked for too long. After all, we’ve all heard the stories of rare items being ‘given as a donation’ to the Kiko Lake team, but it’s obviously intimidation.

Navigating Neopia: Journey of a Non-Native Speaker


你好!That means “Hi!” in Chinese. In Neopia, there are players from all over the world. Even though Neopets is predominantly an English-speaking community, quite a few of us are actually non-native speakers. Today, I would like to share my journey as a Neopian who speaks Chinese as her first language, a tongue as far from English as you can expect. I started off playing Neopets in the Chinese version, but have since continued to enjoy the site in English after the end of support for Chinese. Playing in Chinese At first, naturally, I navigated through the site in Chinese. However, I rarely ventured outside of Flash Games.

"Cathton's Birthday Wish" by precious_katuch14
If one were to meet Cathton Wincott, one’s first impression was that he had everything he wanted. He was the only son of the noble and incredibly wealthy Lord Lotham and Lady Elesia Wincott, who gave him everything he could ask for – a spacious room in their manor in western Meridell with a huge and comfortable canopy bed, the most detailed and colourful toys, the rarest books to fill his shelves, to name a few. Their dining table was always set with only the best cuisine money could buy, and he was free to roam their manor’s many quarters and hallways to find the several game and sports rooms built to ensure that he was never bored. But there was one thing that he didn’t have, which many less fortunate children had.

"Tales of Neopia: Two Against One" by neoghia
Have you ever wondered what happened in certain moments of Neopian history? How did Sloth first capture Mira the Space Faerie? Where did the Monocerous come from? Just what is the Tombola man? Here at the Lutari Island Institute, we seek an answer to all questions. These are the forgotten histories, the unrecorded memories and the lost feelings of our society. These are the Tales of Neopia. In this issue, we journey back to the kingdom lost to time. Altador. A gorgeous city by the sea that fell to one of its own rulers. Twelve rulers, three faeries, one betrayer. What did Psellia and Siyana think of the Sleeper’s dark plot? Why didn’t they fetch Fyora immediately? Why didn’t they stop her? All those answers and...

"Into the Mists - An Interview with Mirsha Grelinek" by skatabo
Hello, Neopian Times, and welcome to our third team interview, courtesy of Mirsha Grelinek, captain of Team Shenkuu! The weather is a bit chilly up in these mountains, but the team uses opportunities like this to improve their stamina and mental fortitude! This training ground is hard to pinpoint on any map due to the heavy mist surrounding it, but the cottage is lovely, and the tea is fantastic. Skaata: “Ever since you debuted with a spectacular third-place finish in the second Altador Cup, you’ve been a huge hit with legions of fans all across Neopia wearing red and gold with pride. What’s it like being one of the Altador Cup’s most popular teams? Mirsha: “It is a tremendous honour to have such a significant amount of...
