WARNING: Overpowered has since gone out of business, its website has been decommissioned, and the domain name was sold to a third party that is now displaying inappropriate content. We highly recommend not seeking out the current website.
A new venture from Rarebits, in partnership with Overpowered, has debuted this morning, and it's called Neopets Cryptoquest. If you've ever worked with blockchain technologies before (like Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.), then you'll probably be familiar with how this works.
Here's the beginning of the backstory:
This is not your typical Haunted Woods tale about ghouls and goblins lurking in the neglected and dangerous Haunted Woods.From now until November 4th, you have the opportunity to purchase packs of virtual Neopets collectable cards with the goal of collecting certain sets of them. A Standard pack, containing 3 cards, is available for $4.99 USD, and a Deluxe pack, guaranteed to contain rarer cards, is available for $7.99 USD. (If you buy the packs in bulk, there's a slight discount for buying 3x, 5x, and 10x packs at once.)
It all started when Aisha, Draik, Kougra, and Uni decided to go to the Haunted Woods, being brave and curious. They wanted to be challenged on a quest to feed the Brain Tree and find out a mysterious piece of Neopian lore.
On the way Kougra said, "Guys, it's getting late and we don’t want to be stuck in the Haunted Woods when it gets dark.”
Aisha added, excitedly, "And don't forget that we still have Halloween parties to attend." So they all agreed and decided to complete the quest and get out as fast as they could.
Here are some of the virtual cards you'll receive:
If you complete a set of cards, then you'll receive another Rare Item Code for each of the 4 Neopets you're dressing up. The rewards from these Rare Item Codes have a 50/50 shot of being: Halloween Uni Morphing Potion, Faerie Kougra Plushie, Zombie Aisha Morphing Potion, Pirate Draik Morphing Potion. If you do not receive one of the above, you'll be guaranteed to receive a "deluxe item" worth "anywhere from 40,000 to 100,000 NP".
To help you complete sets faster without purchasing more card packs, you can also buy and sell from other users via the secondary auction house, which will be available until April 30, 2019. To use the secondary marketplace, you will need to set up your very own Ethereum blockchain wallet and use cryptocurrency to buy and sell. (You will need to convert your local currency into ETH.)
Will you be buying any virtual card packs to complete the quests? Let us know in the comments! And let us know what you received from your Rare Item Codes in the comments, too!
