We have some new games that have just appeared on the server. :smile: Also, we're sorry about the late updates, but our host did some updating and didn't update everything they needed to. Therefore, our news exploded, and the forums died. Everything is back to normal now, though! :grin:

Bouncy Supreme
As seen on the Coming Soon page.

This Week's Interesting Editorial!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on February 25, 2005, 8:47 pm NST

This week's editorial is very interesting indeed! It features a bunch of questions and answers about the upcoming plot. Here's a few of the most important questions, which are highlighted below. :smile: My comments are in red.

Well, its near the end of February, and we still haven't seen anything about Maraqua being rebuilt or a plot. When exactly will all of this happen? - pojoe79
You can expect to see the first installment of the plot in two weeks time. After that things will begin to move quite swiftly.

This sounds great! Seems as if it will have the same great speed that the Hannah plot had. (Most past plots were long and drawn out...)

When will you rebuild Maraqua? Will there be the old Maraqua and the new Maraqua? I checked out Maraqua and it is not yet rebuilt. Thanks, from red_green_red_green
There will be at least two maps or Maraqua, possibly three. One will be a redrawn version of the ruins. One will be a new map of the new city.

This sounds great! The more maps of Maraquan content, the better. Let's just hope it doesn't turn into a desolate underwater kelp garden like how Kreludor turned out to be...


New Maraqua | Old Maraqua


Can you please put to rest the rumors that Slugawoo is not going to be the next petpet-turned-into-a-pet a la krawk? - Mrthang178
Sure. Slugawoos are not going to be the next Petpet to turn into a Neopet.

Interesting... very interesting...



For your upcoming plot will we be introduced to a new neopet like for Hannah and the Ice Caves? - hpmsgurl310
No. There is no new species involved with this plot. This is totally focused on Maraqua and the events surrounding it.

The Mok was recently deleted from the servers. Does this mean they're scrapping it all together? Or does it mean that the Mok just isn't featured in the plot?

Has the mysterious statue in the ruins of maraqua anything to do with the plot?? PLEASE, I wanna know what it is!! - superflagelman
I am afraid you will have to wait a little longer to find out about the statue. That is just one of many relics lying about the floor of old Maraqua.

Well folks, there you have it. See? The statue of the Jennumara has nothing to do with this plot. She'll be featured in her own plot coming in the next few months. :wink:



I was wondering are you going to make a Maraqua sidebar? - solidsnake73
Oh yes! We are working on it right now and it looks quite spiffy!

Finally! A sidebar not relating to a holiday, but an aspect of Neopets itself. They should definately consider making sidebars for additional worlds as well. And make sure they're attainable! I'm tired of seeing my Valentine's sidebar :tongue:

I would like to know if you are going to randomly give out maraquan paint brushes when maraqua returns. Giving out the brushes may make them cheaper to buy, and people who don't have a millon-something neopoints lying around (like me)could aford the maraquan look, or they may just be one of the people who find them. If you were, however planning to give them out anyway then thanks a bunch! ^_^ - babydee56
At the moment we are figuring out how to release more paint brushes in the game without driving people crazy. A special paint brush look should be rare, but it shouldnt be unobtainable. I am not 100% sure how we are going to do this, but there will be more ways to get all paint brushes, not just Maraquan ones.

Not related to Maraqua at all, but it's nice to know that the staff are acknowledging that even an Orange paint brush costs an arm and a leg nowadays...



All in all, there are plenty of things planned for Maraqua in the upcoming months. This includes games, shops, new petpets, Maraquan pets and petpets, items, and lots of other Maraquan goodies!

TNT... Generous!?

If you check your inboxes today, you might come across an email from Neopets about the latest Neopets news! "So what?" you might be thinking. But this is no ordinary email! TNT has included a link to a special freebies giveaway!


[Click here to claim your freebies!]


The email also included these interesting quotes:

"This month sees the release of our Curse of Maraqua TCG set and storyline. Follow the adventures of Garin the Foolish as he attempts to rediscover the underwater city of Maraqua. There will be a grand battle for your Neopet to join in where they can choose to help Garin thwart evil pirates, or work for the dastardly Captain Scarblade."

"Later on, a new species will be released. We are keeping it all rather hush-hush, but we can tell you it is reptilian, and is not cute!"

The above indicates that a war or some sort of battle may occur for this plot. Also, we know that the second species of Neopet that TNT promised is reptillian. Might it be a snake pet, that so many people have wished for? I also assume that the Mok will be released before the plot's end. (But under a different name.)
