How do genetics work? Edition
>New to the /npg/ or Neopets in general?
If you have ANY questions, ask and someone should respond. Things are getting active again.
>I remember this! What's changed in my absence?
>Basic guides for newbies:
>Daily visits guide
>Food Club Bet page links
>Any new pets?
>How did I get RS banned so fast?
Neopian shops now automatically and randomly clear themselves. To check if you're actually banned or not, go check on the Neoboards or go into other shops.
>Why are you guys playing this?
Mainly nostalgia. And to make some in-game dosh.
>Why am I so poor?
Be sure the do all your (free) dailies every day, you could get something rare to sell (be sure to price check!). Earn some starting neopoints by playing the flash games listed on http://www.jellyneo.net/?go=50k_a_day until you're not terribly poor. If you have an old account, play food club (using the bets listed in the above links). Once you have a decent amount of NP, buy 1000 stocks of a 15 NP stock on the stock market each day. and sell when a stock of yours reaches a high amount (usually >30, >60, or >100, depending on how much you're willing to hold out for). If you have a pet that can put up a fight in the battledome, be sure to fight opponents like the Kreludian Defender Bot or Koi Warrior each day to get codestones to sell or train with. If you can't beat a decent opponent, consider investing in a cursed elixir rather than training. Finally, the best method by far to earn NP is restocking. There are plenty of guides available via google, but feel free to ask for our guide and some anon will post it for you.
Neohunger games will be on Thursday evening, around 5 neopets time.
I'm taking pet entries now. If you're nominating the same pet as last time, I just need a name/nickname. If you nominating a new pet, I would like a pic and a name.
If you don't know what this is, I input your pets into a hunger games simulator and watch them get brutally murdered. Winner gets a prize.
I'm probably going to buy NC for the first time ever just because of how much I like this pet.
Daily reminder to NOT do Crafting Faerie Quest. By turning her down you send her to me! Her friendly neighborhood Skeith!
So when you see that purple slut asking for help turn her down. No matter how much she begs, cries and says she'll be taken to a "sex dungeon" if she doesn't get the items by midnight, etcetera, etcetera, just say no!
Thank for your time.
Changing trip, if anyone cares.
I apologize to the two people who actually responded to my offer of doing requests, but I remembered that I accidentally left my tablet at my boyfriend's parent's place and they live several hours away.
I made a post on the NC forum because I didn't know that they only sold GBCs at the end of the month, so I got an earful of explanations that I'm not totally sure I understand.
Apparently I'll need ~2.6k NC
($30 for a pet I may as well buy a damned UC)to get all of that stuff, but I'm not sure if that includes the boxes I'll need myself to send them off.
posting this real quick because i need to work on real money commissions lol
h-hey thats my art
>tfw you can't get NC with lewd art that you sell
if you buy the nc via cards you'll probably have enough boxes. if not, i doubt it.
you also might find people discounting their items if you lurk around enough, but i don't know if you have the patience for that.
You could try making a board asking if anyone has the items you're looking for in a 2 for 1 sale. You could also see who has them UFT on Dress to Impress. $30 seems really high to get all those items.
Yeah, the 6 items are:
MiniMME22-S2b: Queen of Lost Desert Markings
Lost Desert Team Braided Wig
Lost Desert Pyramids Background
Eyes of the Cursed Pharaoh
Zombie Mummy Wrap Dress
Dusty Sand Dune Foreground
>zombie mummy wrap dress 2~4 (400-800 nc)
>eyes of the cursed pharaoh 3~4 (600-800 nc)
>lost desert pyramids bg 3~4 (600-800 nc)
>queen of lost desert markings 2~3 (400-600 nc)
>lost desert team braided wig ~2 (400 nc)
>dusty sand dune foreground 1~2 (200-400 nc)
so if you go by the lowest listed values, that's 2.6k nc.
since most of these items are 2+ caps each it's unlikely that you'd find them in a 2:1 sale very often unless someone was desperate. i'd still say it's worth holding out for bargains rather than knocking them all off quickly, tho.
I'm impatient. I went in ready to spend it tonight.
I don't have any gift boxes or anything to trade for it right now, I only have 2 NC items that got gifted to me because I spent my free NC on fortune cookies ;;
It's your call though, anon - krazykoltreborn is me
gbcs are especially coveted when they're not sold in the store, like right now. i'd say wait until they're back in stock, buy as many as possible, and then after they're rotated out again make some boards stating that you're offering GBCs. you'll get lots of interest. feel free to jew people within reason, the worst you could do is lose out on trading with a single person.
That will be 3 million neopoints, plus tip.
Here's the lineup. Groups aren't final. For those of you who don't know, the simulation only allows 24, 36, or 48 entries. So this pushes us to 36 entries.
Here's what I'm thinking of doing:
I'll fill the rest of the slots with npcs and if an npc wins the tournament, I'll give consolidation prizes to the top 4 pets.
If a pet wins the tournament, he/she gets the winning prize and the next 3 longest surviving pets get consolidation prizes.
Eh, last time the pet with wings died from fall damage and the pet with the waterfall died of thirst.
If anything the Lamant will drown and Ptunga will die of 3d degree burns.
Penny will eat them both
Anyone wanna make custom art of this guy whipping a brown Mynci in a field? Will pay real dollars for this.
You got something to say to me?
>the pet I suggested isn't there
a-am I too late?
Here's the Image.
Also, hunger games anon, please replace the old image with this one
yea, paypal. my email is
this will probably take like, two days or something. i'll get started after you post the updated pic+any other specifics you want in the image.
s h r u g
You gonna spend all of that dosh on
NC arn't you?
>implying anyone likes disgusting subneopian myncis
They're bred to work, not to be loved.
thank you. he's the one pet i'm the proudest of, and the one i commission and trade art of all the time. I'm gonna post some of it. pic related is mine.
i'm not sure what do you mean by that. are you referring to >>99596802 ? if so, it's a reference, and since his eye is kinda obscured by the shading on the main drawing, i made a reference of his eye. i send this to people when i commission art of him so they'll know what to draw.
done, these are all the ones i have of him. i'm still trading for some more art though. i really like him lol
babby's first science.
thanks, any art is welcome! i'm making him a petpage with some info and art.
All aisha colors come with an unequipped second pair of ears and head gem for that color, green doesn't get a red gem
This way all Aishas can look like their alien counterparts and the alien color keeps it uniqueness with the clothes and red head gem.
Has anyone here actually gotten a good result of out of The Coincidence?
hi npg. yesterday a friend gave me a maraquan gelert, i've been trying to come up with a design for her since then.
what do you guys think?
adorable from the shoulders up, tho the clothes don't make much sense to me. the cloak and necklaces+rope make me think of nobility, but then she's just wearing striped stockings for no reason
Threadly commission reminder. 200k for one of these. Currently do no do quad pets or lewd.
That makes 2 days in a row now
well if it has been lost maybe we should restart some research. how could we go about recording these numbers, having everybody put in their result for each option in an excel page?
shit, I missed these from the last GMC

The suffering doesn't end.
Would you be willing to add your results?
This is for 100 tokens at once only and check the results before doing any so there is no duplicates.
Hi there i have no name!
I'm just emailing to say that I had a great time in the Neolodge,
and now it's time for me to checkout and go back to Neopia.
Thanks for being the best owner ever; I hope all the other Neopets are jealous! :)
See you soon,
because i like DC comics' Red Hood too much.
I'm aware, I'm about halfway to the Snowy Valley one which is like the third cheapest.
But there's really nothing in avatars that requires money outside of that and the Rich/Richer/Richest HT ones.
Lit anon here, thinking about trying to do a few short fics. Requests open and all that, will work for free, but I probably won't take on more than three or four. I might just choose the first ones requested or might go with the ones I find most interesting, don't know yet. I'll do them sometime tomorrow.
If anyone's interested, give me a request/prompt.
Lewdaccepted. I did the Sophie things for Jean so he can vouch for me. How were they, anyway?
>item I blocked from rsing
Not a good omen.
Buy it now guys and lend it to me
Sorry. It would leave me bankrupt and I'm poor enough as it is.
>tfw the art I commissioned of Tarlato the slavemaster whipping a brown mynci in a wheat-field is coming along gorgeously
I can't wait
>That pic name
That myncie is a bit too cute though, to the point where I sorta feel
almost bad for it. Almost
>feeling an inkling of sympathy, even for a moment
Do you need 40 lashes?
Second million, yay. Another 3 and I'll finally buy the lab map.
They're red and round.
I might get a Red Poppit though. Maybe not. I probably will just get a mirgle.
>try to intimidate slaves
>they just dance
FUCKING WORK YOU SUBHUMANS
>Mirgle gets told to work
Seems about right.
just these stupid fucking contacts pretty much
i don't like draiks much but it's the only species that doesn't look stupid as fuck with the newsboy hat on+fits the name
I only have it because I am full on pets and wanted an extra slot for cupcakes so
THE FUCK do I do with all these dubloons
Alright guys, finally turned one of my labrats back into a Skeith.
Am I missing anything here?
There's the marrow wocky and maybe the kiko pop guy as one team.
Then Puffo and Sproggie as Team Upset.
Then there's Bruno post-transformation.
If you guys have any NPC suggestions, I'll take them now.
If you want to enter your pet and haven't yet, there's still time. Only 1 pet per anon please so everyone can have an equal chance at prizes.
No not really. I was disappointed by how unpolished the ssw was. It freezes a lot and you'll hit the max refreshes pretty fast.
5th pet is next to useless for me personally, and all the other premium perks are negligible.
Over the span of two hours random events have cost my active pet:
2 speed points
and a couple health points
>tfw when you don't even have a micropenis to give your pet
Clearly I am the worst user.
Celebrating my first million with this bitch for the first time ever. May the gods of dosh smile on me
Celebrating my last time ever spinning this wheel, woo!
'Terrible things you make your pets do for avatars'
>shoving them into the lair of a creature known to eat Neopets and hoping that they get injured
>making them spin the wheel of misfortune or the wheel of monotony
>making them go into the haunted ruins where they'll likely just get injured or chased by an angry ghost
>giving them a little petpet friend in hopes that it will be eaten before their eyes by an overgrown petpet
>having the lab ray disfigure them constantly in hopes of getting species specific avatars so that none of your other pets have to suffer
>using the petpet lab ray to turn their only friend into a pile of ash which you'll stick two googly eyes on and claim is still alive
>starving them for food requirement avatars while your other pets are living it up at the neolodge
>forcing them to fight (and sometimes purposely get beaten into unconsciousness)
>forcing them to watch a Yes Boy Ice-Cream concert
Can I enter my pet? I want to see him suffer. His name's Orbitin.
Oh beneficent /npg/, I beseech thee for thy aid. Could thoust locate a Janitor Bucket?
After countless idiotic results, he finally gives me something worth while, and for only 50 np. Thanks for nothing landlebrot.
Wait people play neopets? I'm not making fun of you, im legitimately curious what keeps you playing the game? (it can't just be nostalgia can it?)
in my case it's more about collection and hoarding issues.
also, having cute pets and making characters for them with stories and such feeds my creativity and keeps me going in terms of art.
I came here to complete my childhood goals such as creating my dream pet, earning trophies, getting rich, etc.
I also stay to create porn for these starving fuckers every once and a while.
There are a lot of different ways to play the site that appeal to different people.
/npg/ is mostly interested in trying to get as much in-site money as possible.
There are a lot of things to collect, including avatars (which are basically achievements), game trophies, and any number of items if you want to start a themed gallery.
Some people get caught up in the site lore and contribute to the numerous creative contests.
And then there are the people who mostly come to play the games and not much else.
I enjoy everything that goes on with the site
From saving up cash to buy clothes to participating in wars, there's a lot of fun things to do in neopets, it's a good something to do
Well thank you, been looking for something that isn't overly involved to start playing. This general seemed pretty tame compared to others in terms of memeing and shitposting so it got me kinda curious
>spend all my cash on a jacket and a bag of neopoints
>looking at other cosmetics I need
>really expensive cosmetics are being sold for extremely cheap
>buy and resell them for 80-90k each
>even got some for myself
Some people do shop restocking, I do market hunting
Send a neogreeting to yourself to get an avatar.
It sure is great to land unbuyables without even knowing they were such while casually refreshing shops every 30 seconds. Blessed dead hours.
I'm trying to make my ice hissi into a thief archetype, but I'm having trouble finding the perfect customization. The hissi thief set just doesn't do it for me. Anybody want to try their hand at making a cool ice hissi thief?
For me it's a little bit of everything, mostly I like taking care of my pets, getting more stuff for them, training up for the battledome and discovering the cool random events. It's a very comfy experience.
>BDfags lying that people get frozen for cupcake/pound shit
>Even though they don't and official fan sites like Jellyneo says it's frowned upon but legitimate.
Although using pets in this manner goes against the spirit of the game, no rules are in place prohibiting the practice. The week after release, the Neopian Times Editorial did request players use the cupcakes as they were intended, but it did not explicitly state that cupcake abuse was against the rules. The editorial response shows that the potential for abuse was an oversight in the implementation.
I honestly wish I knew. I'm still in the middle of organising it all, so only a bit of it is in the gallery, and the rest is all floating about my SDB. I'm saving up a million or so to expand and organise it properly.
>BD pet already at 300+ HSD
>Like your other pet's design more now and would like it to be your BD pet instead
>tfw when you just started restocking this week and everything is rotting in your shop
Using a shell might be more risky though as it adds a middle man, the only thing that's stopped me so far is the bad rep I'd get.
BD chat seems to not be following SuAPs sales as hard atm however.
Yeah, they really keep track of these SuAPs
What if you find a seller just mail them and buy the SuAP via trades with ets bd weapons?
That will remove the risk of bad rep, unless the seller rats you out.
Can't wait too long however otherwise it'll be nabbed by a reseller.
I'm gonna pull the trigger at most likely 45-50M. If it never goes that low so be it. If I do nab it I'll upgrade to premium goy for a month or so to be safe.
