Friday has a rather interesting caption featuring a grumpy Skarl.... who else?

[i]Maybe leaving Rink Runner was a bad idea.....[/i]

We're also looking for someone to be in charge of our plot section. The frequent updates to the plot have been a strain on our staff, so we're interested in hiring someone who is dedicated to getting the solutions up in a fast and efficient manner. If you're interested, drop an email to dave[at]jellyneo.net, and be sure to cite a previous plot guide you've written (either on petpage or website). Extra points for a guide to the current HW Plot. Also, if you do well enough, we might keep you on board for future plots.

New Tale of Woe Battledome Opponent!
  • Posted by Terry
  • Posted on November 17, 2006, 7:24 pm NST

Update: Mayor Thumburt is finally defeated!

The green menace that is Mayor Thumburt is attacking Sophie and company. It is our job to help defeat him. So far he has come and gone in the form of a normal mayor. But suddenly he returned, chest too large for his shirt but still clutching that awesome cane of his! Scary, eh? And once the current incarnation is vanquished, he shall return one more time.

To challenge him and help whittle down his Hitpoints with the rest of Neopia, fist visit Neovia so he is added to your opponents list.


Mayor Thumburt will be waiting for you in the BATTLEDOME!!!

He was elected to be mayor of the town, but who ever really wants to be just mayor?

Everyone is battling Mayor Thumburt. Since he is a boss, everyone fights him, and collective damage is done. For example, when I fight him, he goes down a few HP and the next person to fight him enters the battle with the Mayor at that lower HP.

He does 1,000 to 2,000HP damage to you per battle, so have your Healing Potions ready. You should also finish up the plot! This potentially could be the final step (and your last chance to accumulate as many points possible!).

HINT: Since the Mayor does major damage, you only need to heal your pet 1HP. If he's going to wipe your pet out, why bother healing all the way and wasting money on healing potions? You only need 1HP/xxxHP to fight. :wink:

"Mayor Thumburt weakens slightly, but absorbs all damage done to him!"

Mayor Thumburt the First: Defeated

Mayor Thumburt the Second: Defeated

Mayor Thumburt the Third

Yup. The plot's over. You can no longer do any of the steps. According to TNT, points will be counted starting next week. Yeah. (We all know how that goes. :P)

Click here to view the final comic!

Congratulations to those who finished the plot! For a little end blurb, visit the Gypsy Camp and click on the orange Wocky.

Shops have also sprung up in Neovia.

Neopets' Big Change
  • Posted by Terry
  • Posted on November 21, 2006, 8:13 pm NST

The new change is out! The new change is..... *insert drumroll here* Games Room Revamp! Click here to go to the NEW Games Room!

Here are the new changes (in a more organized format):

  1. Five Score Sends until tomorrow. Yup. More fun for EVERYONE since it's Neopets' birthday week thing. ;D

  2. New Arcade. Click here to get to the Arcade. :P

  3. More categories, such as Strategy, Board Games and Multiplayer Games.

  4. New Games Challenge Daily? o_O Click here to read up.

  5. New Individual Games page look! Yes, wording was stupid, I know. xD Just take a look here. xP
And the Games Master says here...

"This is fanstastic! Only someone with a cognitive capacity such as mine could come up with an idea like this. I will draft the rules and announce them to all of Neopia, say, tomorrow. Yes, the 22nd of the Month of Storing. Gamers from every world will answer my challenge, and perhaps I'll even award prizes... well, that's doubtful. No one will ever perform well enough for that. Anyway, come back tomorrow! Yes... tomorrow..."

He floats away on that chair of his, still mumbling to himself about the challenge. Guess you should come back tomorrow. You can't miss this.
