Spooky Food Eating Contest

Spooky Food Eating Contest Coverage

The Perlious Catacombs Door Outcomes

As part of the Perilous Catacombs step in the Spooky Food Eating Contest, users explored the catacombs below Neovia by opening doors. Each door was presented with some introductory text describing what could be heard or seen, and based on this, users selected one of three options to open it. If they selected the correct answer, users were awarded a prize, but picking either incorrect answer resulted in a curse. This is a record of all of the outcome text for the doors in the step.

Riddle - A Cup that Fills
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

The door wriggles its jaw, then demands, "A cup that fills itself but once a year with the sound of many cheers. What is it?"
Success - Altador Cup
"Ugh," says the door. "I bet you've gotten to go, too. Must be nice, being mobile. I just get the newspaper delivered."
Failure - Cup of Ghostly Borovan or Dark Tea
"NAY, FOOLISH MORTAL," the door booms, then pauses to cough. "I could really use a sip of water. Anyway, wrong answer."
Riddle - Breaks Apart
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

Laughing at your uneasiness, the door growls, "What breaks apart, comes back together, and hands out morphing potions?"
Success - Krawk Island
"Oh, clever, clever." The door laughs maniacally, then stops abruptly to glare at you. "You were lucky."
Failure - Coconut Shy or The Neggery
"Hmm... how about... NO! MWHAHAHA!" You stand there awkwardly waiting for the door to stop laughing. It takes a while.
Riddle - First is in Haunted
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

Gazing at you with glowing red eyes, the door whispers, "My first is in haunted but never in good. My second is in eerie but never in ichor. My third is in lucky but never in quicker. My last is in peril but never in woods. What am I?"
Success - Help
"Wicked clever of you," whispers the door. "Don't dawdle here. Dark things dwell nearby."
Failure - Doom or Fear
"Oh no, that's not it at all." The door heaves a barely audible sigh. "I did so want for you to get it right."
Riddle - Inside, A Staircase
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

The door heaves a long-suffering sigh and asks, "Inside, a staircase. Outside, clouds float by. Inside, treasure. Outside, no door is spied."
Success - Hidden Tower
"Oh, bother... you've gone and guessed the right answer. Now what will I do? That was my best riddle, too."
Failure - Jhudora's Bluff or Space Station
"Oh, bother... this isn't turning out to be a very good morning for you after all. And no hope of things getting better."
Riddle - It Goes Up
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

Chomping like a hungry Werhond, the door snarls, "It goes up, it is sold; it goes down below ten and five, it sits there and grows old."
Success - Stock
The door smiles, its wood creaking alarmingly. "Very good, very good. You should join our Tuesday Riddles Club."
Failure - Smoothie or Souvenir
"NO!" the door snarls. "Not right at all. Better luck next time... if you get a next time." It gives a blood curdling howl.
Riddle - Punished Pride
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

Like an ancient prophet, the door intones, "They punished pride and claimed the Obelisk's first light, with methods cloaked in the shadows of night."
Success - Sway
"I... I can't believe it. You're not one of them, are you?"
Failure - Awakened or Thieves Guild
"If only you were right. Still, maybe it's better not to know too much. Wiser to look foolish."
Riddle - Rattle Bones
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

Rattling its hinges, the door barks, "Rattle bones, flutter sheets, sink fangs, hand out treats."
Success - Halloween
"Ah, a fellow fan of my favourite month. I suppose you expect that will save you. Too bad—oh, wait, I'm not supposed to eat you if you're right." The door sighs bitterly.
Failure - Stealth or Wraith
"Disappointing," says the door. "I'll be conveying your mistake to the Brain Tree. Don't expect easy riddles from him for a while."
Riddle - Tongue that Wags
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

In a surprisingly civil tone, the door recites a riddle. "A tongue that wags without lips or teeth, amusing the trees it wanders beneath."
Success - Dribblet
"That's correct! And now we'll be moving on to the final round of our game show. Who will be taking home the top prize of a brand new cupcake frosting machine? Stay tuned!"
Failure - Slorg or Tentacle
"Oh, I'm sorry. That's not the right answer." The door sounds rather sad. "I guess you'll be leaving our game show now. Tune in next week for another episode!"
Riddle - Two Things Are Constant
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

The door's eyes glow malevolently and a voice booms, "Two things are constant above all else in Neopia. What are they?"
Success - Kreludor and Virtupets
“Oh!" says the door. "You actually know the answer! Good show. I get so tired of ignorant adventurers."
Failure - Faerieland and Darigan or Reason and Speech
"No," says the door, its eyes still glowing. "It was a good guess, but that's why I put it in there, to trick you."
Riddle - Wears a Bow
Intriguingly, this door has a face on it. You're pretty sure that's not normal. Then again, you are wandering around in an evil lair, so maybe talking doors are regulation here.

With a wicked laugh, the door inquires, "What wears a bow in the morning, but glasses at night?"
Success - Xweetok
The door pouts. "You guessed it. See, because in the morning is like youth, and... Oh, never mind."
Failure - Kyrii or Yurble
"Nope!" Is it just you, or does the door look rather smug? "So sorry, but that was the wrong answer..."
