  1. Everybody chant, "Ma-Ra-Qua!" "Ma-Ra-Qua!" "Ma-Ra-Qua!" "Ma-Ra-Qua!" "Ma-Ra-Qua!" LOL Good luck to all the teams! Hopefully we'll all have good and fair matches this year! That being said, I'm still supporting Maraqua for the WIN! ;D
  2. Hey Shawn, I'm not really sure where they might be archived. I did a quick bit of looking on the TDN site, and there is a differences page that went up talking a bit about the old BD. https://thedailyneopets.com/battledome/original-battledome I too, miss aspects of the old BD. I rarely did 2p battles, but I was an avid 1p battler, and it was fun coming up with various sets and item ideas for my, at-the-time, underpowered pet. lol Finding uses for the 50% Reflectors and cheap weapons. It was pretty fun, still is, though I've seen fewer and fewer requests for help in that department. I'm kind of hoping to see another plot with battling soon. My peophin's stats are all maxed out (except Level and HP of course). I'd like to see how far I can go with my pet's current build and the intermediate arsenal he has. I don't know if there's a way to sort through the petpages, I know some had Battledome guide stuff on them. I JUST remembered one user's name that had old BD stuff on it. I checked out his ULU and he still has a page up for the old BD. http://www.neopets.com/~garmfry I too, have things about the old BD I miss. Like those faerie abilities especially those that had animated graphics, much more fun to look at imho. Plus I'm not a fan really of level-tiered abilities. I've said that since the old Ability system was scrapped. But the New BD has it's perks, despite a few bugs. You can get some rare, or formerly rare items as prizes, up to 15 prizes per day. And, well, I guess that's about it. LOL I WISH that TNT would give us players some more boost-levels. I've been playing for many years and as far as I know they've never increased it, not in the time I've played anyway. With the difficulty levels in the NEW BD, it would be nice to have a better shot at fighting some of the opponents on the Mighty difficulty. Like Snowy, and others. If we do have another battle plot, I hope they can get the stealing glitch fixed. During the Obelisk War, it was so much fun trying to Steal the boss' Prismatic Mirror. Since we can't get that item, and it reflects a LOT of damage back at the opponent, it can let you stay in the battle for more turns. If you play it right of course. lol Anyway, it's nice to reminisce about the old BD. There are some things I do miss, like species abilities and some things in the new BD I like. lol So I guess TNT didn't do so bad with the new BD. lol That reminds me, I've read that TNT plans (eventually) to bring species weaknesses and resistances back. I might be mistaken about this, but when I've gotten hit by the Lava Ghoul, spinning the Wheel of Excitement, my pet's HP drops more than halfway. I couldn't say for sure, but I think it could be because Peophins, in the old BD, had something like a 15% weakness to Fire. So, some places on the site, like the old Faerie Ability images (and page I think), still seem to exist.
  3. LOL Not silly at all! I've had my peophin painted Stealthy before. But not from a brush. With the random Faerie Quests, it IS possible to get a Fountain Faerie quest. If you purchase NC, you can buy Faerie Quest Fortune Cookies. Gives you 1 guaranteed randomized Faerie Quest per day. You must either complete or cancel the quest in order to receive the quest for the next day. The cookie runs out exactly 9 days from when it's opened. 9x24 hours. The last 24 hours there will be a timer on the faerie quest page that counts down the last 24 hours to the time the cookie runs out. Only when one cookie runs out completely, can you open another Faerie Quest Fortune Cookie for another 9 days of quests. If you don't use NC, then you can always play games like Neoquest and other games that are on-site, non-flash games to increase your chances of getting random events. Of course, it's a shot in the dark whether or not you'll get a random faerie quest while playing, and then there are plenty of other faeries that might need a quest from you. So it's all hit or miss. All that said, best of luck!
  4. You might get lucky and get a Random Faerie Quest for the faerie of the Rainbow Fountain. That's another possibility. Either way, good luck!
  5. Try refreshing the page if it's not refreshing itself after you choose a faction. I've had to do that a couple of times too.
  6. With the current pet limits, I'm a little surprised people are so excited for more pet slots. lol I probably won't be using my spare slot. I only have 2 pets on my main, and my peophin is usually the active pet. (Though Viragore still "steals" levels from scratchcards all the time. lol) I'm just not that "into" having a lot of pets. But it's cool to see so many people are. Let that creativity flow! Right? ?
  7. UGH Got nothing good.. Here are my results.

  8. Sounds like a quite the rousing Zombie Jamboree!
  9. @Yuiina I completely agree! It was only several years ago that I learned the apparent origin of Jack-o-Lanterns. Up until then I thought they were always pumpkins. Oh yes! The costume I had the longest was one my Mom made out of some white fabric and some glow-in-the-dark tape. It was a ghost costume, and I don't know where she got the glow in the dark tape for around the eye and mouth holes, but it only worked when you gave it a good dose of Light before going out. And even then, because it was twilight usually, there was still some light in the sky, so the effect was underwhelming. lol As you couldn't really see the glow. Even from the inside. lol Eventually, I added a cowboy hat and a holster and cap-gun to make the ghost costume that of a dead cowboy or sheriff. Just, something different with what I already had to work with. lol A lot of adults do, but if you look at people who enjoy cosplay, (costume play), like at anime conventions and such, they're pretty craftsy and able to make wonderfully detailed costumes. I've even seen costumes for sale online that individual people, not companies, made. The very LAST thing I did to celebrate Halloween, I mean pseudo-costume-wise, was to get a small travel pillow, and using some safety pics, I'd curl the top of it and pin it into place. Then I would pin it to the inside of a larger shirt, sweatshirt or hooded sweatshirt. A very quick and inexpensive hunchback look. lol I haven't done that in a few years though. lol I'm glad I could help provide you with some references then! Some places are going back to Trick-or-treat times being closer to twilight, sometimes later. Which is good in my opinion. It's not really as fun going out dressed as a spook when the sun is still high in the sky. lol
  10. What an interesting post! I like Halloween just fine. Of course I live in the USA and celebrated it as a kid. I went Trick-or-Treating too. Sometimes the weather was good, sometimes it rained, and I've even gone trick-or-treating with snow on the ground! LOL If you're curious about the origins of Halloween, I'm sure there are plenty of websites that could provide really good info. One of the COOL things about Halloween, is that I learned a couple of years ago, that the Jack-o-Lantern, was ORIGINALLY lanterns carved into Turnips in Ireland. Used as lanterns at night for walking home, or wherever. Being half-Irish, I though this was really cool to learn. ? Of the few costumes I've worn from Childhood to about 14. I think my favorite was a costume I put together myself. Did a pic of it a long time ago... lol That staff actually had a button that lit up and sounded the roaring thunder when you pressed it. Sadly, it stopped working. lol I don't know how to fix it, so it's in storage somewhere. The rest of the costume was a Vampire Cape, with the color turned down because I was a wizard, NOT a vampire. The glow in the dark sword, which you can only see the hilt and crosspiece here, was the last bit I added to the costume. The patch-work hoodie, black slacks and black dress-shoes I already had. This costume I wore beyond just the age of 14, but I only wore it to have some fun. See, this costume helped me cast a dark and imposing figure. I would literally watch as kids crossed the street with their friends, or parents, to avoid crossing my path. When that would happen, I'd activate the staff, and that would draw kids and parents into my dark clutches...... lol Nah, they were fascinated by the staff because they'd probably never seen anything like it. And to think, I found it at Kmart for $19.99! So their curiosity got the better of them and they'd come up to ask about the staff and how it worked. It was really quite fun. I did this for about 2 years before the staff stopped working. The speaker for the Thunder sound came undone and I've yet to get the means to fix it. Also, here is a very old animated gif I did of some Monsters on Halloween night. This was intended to be a desktop background, but by the time I completed it, about 12 or so years after I started it, the standard/most popular screen resolution for computers was no longer 800x600, PLUS Windows seems to no longer support animated gif files in their newer OS versions. Really too bad. ? Otherwise, the only thing that's REALLY changed from Halloween when I was a kid, is that some places, for safety concerns, no longer have Trick-O-Treating closer to the twilight hours. Some places only do it when it's bright and sunny out. Not much fun, really. If a kid were to go solo, I can see the reason for concern, but kids tend to walk with other kids, or parents, so it should, in MOST cases, be FINE to trick-or-treat around Sunset, or later. ?
  11. Meh I say, MEH! LOL I can beat my best score, but I can't break through the 1300 point threshold, so 1500 is REALLY not likely to happen. Guess I'm going with Abigail for this challenge. lol XD
  12. Gah! It figures, DD starts with a game score I'll probably not get. ? My best score for DoM3 is about 250 points shy of the needed score. I might try to beat AAA, but I'm thinking I might just go for Abigail's this time. Just so I don't miss a day of getting a score in on-time for the same-day reward. Also, since it seems that AAA's weapon-prize is mediocre I guess I can pass on it. That being said, I wish they'd give us a little more time between such long events. First the AC that eats up a month, and now suddenly the DD which eats up about 3 weeks. Anyway, best of luck to everyone with the DD! I can grin about that at least. ?
  13. What a weird looking item, that's for sure! XD
  14. Wow, hard to believe there are no votes yet. Does EVERYBODY here have all of the faction avatars and such? I don't really mind which faction I go with either. ?
  15. lol At this point, yeah! Now IF they get the stealing aspect of the BD working again! (For the Heavy Robe of Thievery for instance). It would be useful up to the minimum to use it, 201 in movement points. Or maybe they plan on releasing some movement based equipment in the future? Still, free is free. ?
