Welcome to August! A new month is here, so you can claim your monthly freebie foods and 2000NP!

Krawk Island is still incomplete. Help Gavril McGill retrieve the floating island pieces and place them back together. There are a few variations to the Sudoku puzzle, so you may not have the same one as the example provided. Make sure to check your starting crew members before beginning the puzzle. Maybe after the island has been reformed, we will find the missing Bug Eye McGee!

  • Posted by Nynex
  • Posted on August 2, 2011, 10:59 pm NST

Update:
Neopets: Treasure Keepers Open Beta Update! (8/3/11)
Our Open Beta is right around the corner. We're getting very close now...

While we can't announce the exact date, we wanted to share with you some specifics about how it will impact your game:

All game data will be reset.

All items purchased with Facebook Credits (FC) will be refunded to your Vault.

Shop expansions purchased with FC will also be retained.

Our Closed Beta testers will receive the following exclusive items for all the hard work:
  • A white Kadoatie
  • Mootix Wallpaper
  • A Statue of a Trapped Shopper

These will appear in your Vault after the data wipe and will never be made available to anyone outside the Closed Beta pool.

Be sure to check back in the forums for additional announcements and updates. Thanks again for your continued support!

-The NTK Team


All Treasure Keepers closed beta testers can now redeem prizes for completing quests and achievements. You can now unlock a Treasure Keepers site theme. To unlock the theme, visit the achievements page and click on the code provided. Visit the Gypsy Wagon to learn more about Treasure Keepers.

Current un-lockable codes:
  • Open For Business
  • Level 10
  • Neggery
  • Yesva
  • Level 20
  • The First Rule of Food Club
  • Sappy Love Story
  • The Wonderful Things She Buys
  • Gift of the Gab
  • Collect Coins from Adventures (10,000)

The storyteller's wagon is filled with treasure, and Katya grins as she gestures to her favourite trinkets. "Adventuring's quite profitable, eh? Tell you what. That's quite a story you told me. I almost half-believe it, and you should know, I only believe people half as much as they'd wish, which is twice as much as they deserve. For a story like that, though, you deserve a reward, and I aim to give you one. Just enter your code in the box below."

Brilliant! Just brilliant, really. That's a whizbang tale, and no mistake. As a reward, I have some of the finest treasures this side of Kreludor in this here wagon.



A code might grant you the Mysteriously Overflowing Gift Basket!


I sure am mysterious...

Krawk Island Revamp
  • Posted by Nynex
  • Posted on August 8, 2011, 5:19 pm NST

A new daily has been released. You can now visit Anchor Management and take a chance at chasing away the giant squid attacking the anchors holding Krawk Island in place. (We have added this daily to the preset dailies list.)

Scurvy Island: Feel free to speculate on the inaccessible island marked with the Keep Out signs. It may look a lot like Scurvy Island. What do you think?


Krawk Island | Warf Wharf | Keep Out | Governor's Mansion


Regarding Prizes:

snarkie, 8 Aug 2011 - 5:23 pm
It's coming! There's a bug when the page went live so the programmers are working on it.


Krawk Island Prize Glitch, 8 Aug 2011 - 5:31 pm
As you may have noticed, there's been a glitch with the prize page for Krawk Island. (The Governor's Mansion page should be granting your end prizes for participating in search/retrieval before directing you to the Anchor Management daily.) The programmers are working on it as we speak so it should be fixed shortly. Sorry for delay! =/


Prize Glitch Answers, 8 Aug 2011 - 7:22 pm
Have a blue topic so it's easier to see! I even included a magical swabbie for good measure. *nod*

- Prize glitch is still being worked on. Hopefully fixed soon. *fingers crossed* As for info, I'll just paste what I already posted! "Yes, the daily prize and the event prizes are different. You should be awarded prizes - based on participation - the first time you go to the Governor's mansion. (They're REALLY obvious so you'll know when you get them.) Then you're given access to the daily. Right now, you're just being taken straight to the daily and skipping prizes. That's what they're working on.

- If you already did the daily today, that won't affect claiming prizes. You'll still get them. And you can continue to do the daily... well, daily.

- Frank says hello.

If you would be so kind as to keep this bumped, I'd appreciate it! (Don't go insane and hit the post cap, though. Don't want it to get deleted.)


Almost there, folks., 8 Aug 2011 - 9:32 pm
Just doing some checking. Give us a few more minutes.

Then we'll stick around for a bit to make sure it's really fixed.


While you wait, why not answer the new survey, and let TNT know what you think of the event.

Treasure Keepers Open Beta
  • Posted by Nynex
  • Posted on August 8, 2011, 10:10 pm NST

Treasure Keepers is now open for everyone. You will need a Facebook account to play (you must be over the age of 13 to create a Facebook account according to Facebook Policy). While playing Treasure Keepers, you will unlock achievements that award special item codes that can be redeemed on Neopets. (Due to age restrictions and offsite policy for anyone under the age of 13, you will not be able to redeem any item codes.)

So, what are you waiting for? Start setting up shop, and explore Portal City!

  • Can I log in to Treasure Keepers with my Neopets account?
    No, you'll have to log in to Treasure Keepers with your Facebook account.
  • What is Treasure Keepers and how do I play it?
    Treasure Keepers is a brand-new Facebook game that combines shop management, item collection adventures, and Neopia all in one! To play, click on the "Play Now" button on the main Treasure Keepers hub page on Neopets.com, which will take you to Facebook. You can also reach the game via Facebook.
  • How do I earn codes in Treasure Keepers?
    Codes are given out in Treasure Keepers when you reach certain achievements, such as leveling up.
  • How do I redeem a code?

  • What if I don't have a Facebook account?

    The codes given out on Neopets.com are used in the Facebook game for Treasure Keepers rewards and do not affect your Neopets account. Codes you receive in Treasure Keepers are redeemed on Neopets.com and award prizes for your Neopets account
  • Why can't I see the Treasure Keepers Gypsy Wagon on Neopets.com?
    Treasure Keepers is only available to Neopets users who are 13 or older. If the birthdate attached to your Neopets account indicates that you are under 13 years of age, you won't be able to access Treasure Keepers through Neopets.com.
  • Will Treasure Keepers be available in my language? If not, can I still play it?
    Sorry, Treasure Keepers is only available in English. If you'd still like to play, though, you're welcome to play in English.
  • I entered my code, but it doesn't work. What should I do?
    Try entering the code again. If that doesn't work, go back to Treasure Keepers and write down the code to be sure you enter it correctly on Neopets.com. If you're still having problems after going through these steps, please contact the Help Centre for further assistance.

Treasure Keepers Forum Discussion: Feel free to join the Treasure Keepers discussion on the Jellyneo forums. You may find a few Neofriends to help you play the game and unlock new map areas to explore.
