Mainly nostalgia. And to make some in-game dosh.

Feel free to ask for advice! For newcomers, the battledome is a steady source of income and is a good way to get started.
Battledome rewards are here, with both per-arena and per-opponent lists: http://battlepedia.jellyneo.net/?go=battle_prizes

Adopt for a stat-boosting cupcake, then dump back in the pound. You can only get one cake a day.
Tally anon here. Forgot to take actual tallies; It's been a long work week, and a bad day for me. Debating Joining The Awakened because about 10 of the 17 boons are good, and I wanna gamble for things like Cartogripfication, Bank Bribery, and Quest Refresh -even though I'm out of cookies and want to get a Training FC- later.
That said, Wheel boon can be good dosh with Wheel of Mediocrity, maybe Excitement, and patience with Monotony. Extravagance/Extortion is luck, as is Knowledge.
Both Thieves and Brutes offer Scratch Master, and many Scratch cards sell for more than their Kiosk Price.
If you restock, Thieves also gives you Five-Finger Discount, giving you 10% off in NPC shops.
I don't restock, and Scratchcards are too gambly for me, though.
JOIN THE BATTLEGROUND NOW OR NOT AT ALL THIS WEEK.
NO TIME TO READ A GUIDE; LESS THAN 3 MINUTES LEFT TO JOIN.
JOIN HERE, /npg/: http://www.neopets.com/prehistoric/battleground/
The simple explanation is that you need to do at least 10 Battles to be eligible for Boons.... But how the winners are decided isn't quite known. Maybe it's random, maybe it's hand-picked, maybe it's based on the total "power level" of the foes your faction beat, or just how many enemies.
AFAIK, the win conditions aren't known to the public.
Frankly, I strongly advise doing more than the minimum 10 if you want them boons. At least 100.
As for what the Boons are: If your faction wins, you get your pick of 1 of 5 Boons. The Awakened has random ones, all the others have pre-determined Boons.
You also get the Avatar and Site theme for your faction IF your faction wins.
If you don't win, you get a consolation prize item from a prize pool that you can check out on the guide I linked. So yeah. You probably wanna do lots of fighting.
Give me that Brutes theme. Thieves better not win for the third time this year.
Anyone else ever picture stuff happening in their Dailies, trying to imagine it?
Picturing this scene in my head, it seems pretty surreal.
Not only am I pulling out an entire fence from a barrel, but I'm apparently doing it with my teeth, since I got it during Apple Bobbing.
And as I was doing that, Nigel came all the way to Gloomy-24-7 Neovia and stood on the opposite of the barrel, just to ask me a perhaps provocative question about the Stock Market. And there's the fact that he's using a tin can on a string instead of the cell phone he's been seen with before.
I have to wonder what Bartholomew would be thinking in that context, his shown dialogue aside.
Am I just being dumb?
Sold another The Space Ace for 900k. Damn this recession.
You can't kill that which has no life.

So.... The Altador Council Daily was broken for a little bit. Seems like JS might have been fooling around with something, if it wasn't just some strange bug.
Click King Altador to claim your prize. If you can't do that Daily, you may need to do the Altador Mini-plot.
Considering that Neopets has its birthday in the middle of November, this seems suspicious.
Remember, last year, for Neopets's birthday they introduced a lot of new changes/mechanics.
Vandagyres, the Trading Post NP max offer was raised to 2,000,000 NP, the Auction House's max offer to 50,000,000 NP, birthday cupcakes, the Ruki became limited edition, and they introduced Shops Clearing, which, annoying as it [Shops Clearing] may be sometimes, is a pretty good thing.
Oh, also for the birthday, JS added new prize pools to some Dailies, and added new Avatars, and new site themes.
They surveyed on the playerbase around that time, too.
They may not be doing things ideally, but they have made SOME improvements.
What do you expect they'll give us and do for the Birthday of Neopets this year, /npg/?
My best guess is they were being cautious. It was new management, they were doing surveys and stuff, and hadn't been in control for long.
They probably weren't sure if the Vandagyre was going to be popular, but they felt, maybe for "balancing things out" and/or making the Vandagyre somehow seem more popular -"Move aside, other pet species, the Vandagyre is coming through! With us around, the choices are too good to leave you freely createable, Rukis!"- by making another pet Limited Edition.
Frankly, I don't like Vandagyres that much, but I'm also the owner of a Ruki -I created it years ago, and keep it because nostalgia- and can see some appeal in Vandagyres.... So I'm not sure if they were "successfully" introduced.
In any case, I'm guessing they picked the Ruki because it's pretty low-middle-ish in popularity, and AFAIK, is consistent in that, so they probably thought it a safe choice to make Limited Edition; If it was a more unpopular pet, people might go "WHY is such an awful pet LE?!" -Even though some of us kinda did do that, or are still doing it to this day.- and if it was a popular one, I'd bet people would be pretty angry at JS. Plus, exclusivity like with Draiks and Krawks and their owners and such.
The closest we have to an "official answer" is here: http://www.neopets.com/ntimes/index.phtml?section=editorial&issue=670
>With the new Neopet, the Ruki has become a Limited Edition 'pet. I was wondering how you decided that. Was it random? Was there a vote on it? Please, do tell! ~brynchilla
After a scientific process was employed to narrow the list of choices, it came down to a rousing game of Ruki, Paper, Scissors.
....Speaking of Limited Edition pets, did JS ever get around to releasing Jetsam, however lately, considering they foolishly put out none on Jetsam Day recently this year? If not, that doesn't bode well.
Daily Puzzle answer today is "Darkness Scarab" as the picture shows, among other info.
Grenegg was last priced at about 1,125 NP on September 26th, 2015. It deals 3 Earth and 3 Light icons and for some reason is apparently a Multiuse weapon. How that works, I don't know.
In any case, go collect yours, and sell it fast, because they're probably gonna devalue fast, like many Daily Puzzle prizes do.

Checking the news after a while, I really like the new wearable! looks much better than that green skull mask for my spooky pets.
Is it hard to snipe/expensive tho?
Not bad, but Cross won lagoon and I would have gotten so much money today if I hadn't gone pyramid.
>asking a board full of furries and homos
So the mask kinda sucks on nearly every neopet, but it looks okay on lutaris. What do you think of this /npg/? too busy with the bg?
I want to build my neohome:
Classic or new?
in which world?
grab your goodie bags
>also I like the last HH item (the bg)
Today's Daily Puzzle sure is... interesting.
Also, Tarla is here today. Keep an eye out for her here: http://www.neopets.com/freebies/tarlastoolbar.phtml
Also, don't forget to collect your Monthly Freebies before the month's end, at the end of today.
This is the closest I have to a spooky pet. A robot that dies to twigs.
When will TNT calm the fuck down. I don't really care for romance in stories but it's so fucking stupid that it isn't allowed at all anymore. There's being child friendly and then there's this JFC the shows my 5 yo niece watch sometimes have characters falling in love.
Yeah but TNT wants you to support the beautiful pure lurve of virgin adult characters they chose to couple for reproduction in the missionary position.
Not Kanrik fucking Armin up the ass.
$40 I think? The artist also drew me this because it got delayed. I like both a lot.
Best random event I've ever gotten, just in time for the spooks.
Should I morph a pet with it? mutant korbs look cute but i hate how all the mutant clothes look on it.
I should really just make a Neo subfolder instead of having everything littered around
I advise you don't use the lab ray again until your pet is at least level 255 unless you want to partake in the techo master's wild ride for eternity
I read this post, said to myself "awww, I don't have any spooky pets," and then looked at all of my accounts. Which reminded me that have three.
I am the worst owner.
Take your pic of one of these three?
ok i did 2.
but is dat your pet tho
It was my pet before I started to zap it for stats.
So, the only reason why everyone is still playing this besides nostalgia is to make dosh, right?
I just started up my old account and made my way to 20mil, which I know is loose change to /npg/, but what DO you do with the dosh once you have it?
Something has happened!

She might not look that spooky, but at least she won the last /npg/ hunger games.
I want your opinions
No accent (left) or yes accent (right)?
I didn't know that about the theme and went to sleep before you guys started talking about it due to European hours.
Well, there's still next year. Maybe.
This is actually a good question. Why do I jew? I do occasionally shell out a few hundred thousand neopoints for some clothes but I definitely don't need all these millions. I don't even care about battledoming so I won't be using them to buy a SuAP. My gallery is already complete and I don't feel like making a new, more expensive one. And yet, I can't stop myself.
Today, November 1st, I have collected enough np to get the Neopian Mega-riches bank account.
I know it's not impressive because all you guys restock and shit but I'm pretty glad of it. it shouldn't take me as long to get to ten mil because I will try and max out my Ghoul Catchers plays more often than I have been.
And now to celebrate I will splurge and finish some of my pet's customs I've been working on
Actually, I'm pretty sure I've seen people on the Neoboards who want her quests. And evidently, people do her quests because JN's guide has somewhat up-to-date info on them.
If you're willing to spend NC.... Maybe it's worth it?
Every Crafting Faerie Request requires 2 items, both costing 75 NC, buyable in the NC Mall, with no purpose.
What items she requests tells you what item you'll get for completing it.
Every item she can award is not only wearable, and exclusive, but also seem to change seasonally.
There's a good chance some Crafting Faerie Quest wearables are now both nonexistent and unobtainable.
So yeah. If you're looking for new customization options, next time you get Delina, see what she asked you for, see what you get, and then consider if you can afford to spend the 150 NC you'll need for the quest during whatever season it is when you get your quest.
Dubloons have limited use. They can be used for Academy Training... but Dubloon vs Codestone prices and free training on Pet Days and Neopets' upcoming birthday aside, Mystery Island Training School is much faster.
There's Little Nippers, but AFAIK, their value is consistent AND kinda low.
The Smuggler's Cove hadn't anything for ages until the Maractite Bomb was released a while back.... And while it sold for millions of NP each, it still cost 250 Dubloons, and that's IF you could restock one.
The Smuggler's Cove has no items for sale for now; Gotta wait until something new is released, if ever.
Lastly, for the gamblers here, there's the Golden Dubloon. It can be a fun use of Dubloons, and is one of the few ways to get "change" or lower denomination Dubloons from higher ones, since the Dubloon-O-Matic only converts groups of Dubloons into higher ones.
The Golden Dubloon can be profitable with some luck, but you need a little knowledge and luck. Your goal is to go home with leftovers; Your ordered items are eaten by your Neopet(s) and many, if not all of them are highly valuable, and Gourmet Foods, worth Gourmet Points. But "eating" there gets you no Gourmet points, nor do they go to your inventory, "leftovers" aside.
Hence, getting those precious, gourmet foods into your inventory, requires gambling on getting leftovers.
You may want to read the guide. Clicking item images there should open their JN item database pages. http://www.jellyneo.net/?go=goldendubloon
As for WHY Dubloons are so cheap? Anchor Management Daily and the new Battledome; The Maraquan Battledome's prize pool is one of the most "shallow", and has Dubloons in addition to Codestones, Bottled Faeries, and overall, less junk. Hence, it's used a lot, and a lot more Dubloons have entered the economy.
Also, post Monthly Freebies.
Also, here's a search of all items Rarity 1 to 60:
Monthly Freebies seems only to give out items pets can eat, gross or otherwise, and I THINK the rarity limit is 60.
You can also check item prices on Neocodex, but I've found their prices can be quite different from JN's, and while my items tend to not be ETS, I've not always had too much luck selling items in my shop at their prices.
Also, sometimes, NC's database is sometimes missing items, or they haven't documented that it's Retired yet, as I found when searching for items Rarity 1 to 60 there.
But still. Let's see who can get the highest Monthly Freebies "score", /npg/!
Hey /npg/. The /vg/ soccer league is happening again in 5 weeks.
Hopefully this time somebody manages and we go back to being one of the best teams in the tournament.
clraik bday pets
As always, I should have fought more. Still, wasn't expecting Brutes to win. In any case, at least the avatar I need or a guarantee of good boons were on the line this time.
Congrats to those who won, Brutes. Enjoy your Avatar/Site theme if you just now got it!
Turmaculus is awake for less than 10 more minutes.
There could still have been a large amount of people who needed the Brutes avatar and fervently fought for it. I've seen some groups like that, especially with Thieves....
Thieves lost many times before with tons of people doing hundreds of fights for the avatar, then won twice in a row and probably had nearly no one with them that second time. Unless there's a group rigging the obelisk war like Neocodex does with the Altador Cup every time, it's random.
I'm the person who made them last time and /npg/'s trademark is that we're very good at defence. Unfortunately nobody bothered to do substitutions for my formation like the first time and we didn't do well.
>be too slow
>pet starts talking like he's big shit
Go eat a fucking dick, no one asked for your opinion.
Strawpoll only allows 30 different voting options, so we can think of either 7 new players to put to poll or agree that some players need to be sacked so there's room to add more new player suggestions
In case I'm not making it clear enough, we cannot compete in the /vg/ league until somebody goes to http://implyingrigged.info/wiki//vg/_League_5_Signups and makes an account, then edits the page with a link to this thread to sign up like the rest of the teams have.
Spots are running out. It's not hard. Go on /npg/.
I shouldn't come back to this shit-hole.
Yet I want to.
Why tho. This game is garbage.
Terrarium = dead.
Keyquest = dead
Restocking = dead and probably filled with bots
Activities NOT related to customization = dead
Plots = dead
Battledome = dead
Gold trophies = dead
Random contest = dead
Lenny conundrum = dead
You guys are garbage.
The only ones I love are
I thought it was going to be that "REEEEE normie trash xD lul" bullshit. I was pleasantly surprised and actually chuckled.

Go answer the Daily Puzzle with "Lulu" for 112 NP and an Upside Down Slorg Garland, last valued at 5,500 NP!
I like the new glowy-hands, nice alternative to a staff or wand for any magic themed pets. The staff looks ok too, but I'm going to have to wait for previews to see if they made it actually lean up against quadrupedal pets or if it just sticks in the ground
That is one of my favorite customs
Doesn't really fit the pet it's on but I'll keep it just because it's a lab exclusive.
Are we allowed to nominate pets we don't own? If so, I nominate http://www.neopets.com/petlookup.phtml?pet=SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Yes, I was the one who linked that in the thread earlier.
I did once, during my early teen years.
Also, have a RE.
Bumping this up again /npg/. We're confirmed in the tournament and all we have to do is update the team.
Suggestions so far
but nothing suggested
It's worth points in the Neggery, so obviously, yes; There are actually some Neggs with uses like changing your pet's colour, or raising their stats.
Nonetheless, here's JN's page on it: http://items.jellyneo.net/index.php?go=item&showitem=4922
And here's Neocodex's page on it: http://www.neocodex.us/forum/itemdb/21418-mutated-negg
Jellyneo last priced it at 400,000 NP on August 27th, 2015 (Apparently 70,000 NP lower than the price it was given on June 24th, 2015.) while Codex last priced it at 99,252 NP on January 4th, 2015.
Frankly, I've often found Codex's prices less reliable, but JN's is the higher one here, so it might not hurt to look around.... Or just average the two prices or something.
Apologies. I was a bit thoughtless. While I'm picking out a gift, what are the Hunger Games rules?
Mind you, I don't like making myself too conspicuous, such as by participating in "giveaways". Being frank, I'd want it to look "natural". As such, I don't want anything if SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEE wins.
Is that okay?
Omiting one possibly unnecessary step, if you wanna make it look "natural", one thing we could do is you put up a junk trade, saying "Free" or such, link to that here, and I send you the prize for the pool through that trade, possibly with another of whatever junk items you're offering. No need to do all that if you don't want to, though. Please pardon my paranoia.
By the way, what's the current prize pool and rules on putting something into it?
So what did everyone do on Halloween?
I went out to dinner, gave out candy to the trick or treaters, then played Neo until I passed out.
How's /npg/ doing?
