  1. The ray is fired at Homir... ... and he changes colour to Biscuit!! Oh, biscuit kyriis are actually so cute?? The ray has already been fired... Your eyes recover quite quickly after the giant explosion, but that's more than you can say for your Petpet. The Kookith is kind enough to sweep up Lazpip for you and you head home. He was already a pile of soot!
  2. KBAT's up to 101 today! I sold 18k at 80 yesterday, and 5k more today. Just going to sit on the last 5k and see if it goes up any higher.
  3. oh god, that's horrific i've never wanted a skeith but now i kinda do...
  4. yeah, i only played legends & letters and ghoul catchers because of the in-site rewards. i actually enjoyed legends & letters for its own sake, but ghoul catchers was just what i played while, like, waiting for the bus or w/e. i never got very far it in, i just played the easy matches for the nps
  5. Faerieland whatever-it's-called must be tanking pretty bad, because there's a new survey out asking about mobile games again. I was way off in my estimate, I figured it would be at least January before they tried pitching another one. I just did the survey, at least this time they didn't try and dress it up with 2 vague questions about the actual site, it's strictly about mobiles games. Looks like some sort of village-builder with a slot machine gimmick. Might be worth taking the survey as a protest, although I'm guessing that they've already committed to making the game.
  6. dear god, that outfit is.... something, alright.
  7. The ray is fired at Movario... ... and he changes into a Red Gnorbu!! no thanks! Movario greedily drinks the whole potion then starts to turn to Gold!!!
  8. NGL, i really wanna go bake some brownies or something now... I especially like the ears, that looks like chocolate ganache!
  9. Ohhh. Hey that would be cool! I wonder if anyone's ever tried to recreate the mosaics IRL?
  10. OOOO that looks amazing! ... is it bad that i'm getting shrek vibes from her? "Get outta my swamp!"
  11. I wonder if that was the inspiration for them? And what do you mean about decorations rather than pets? Do you mean like an outfit rather than a colour?
  12. Probably not, i'll definitely be a lot more careful but I accepted the friends request anyway lol and look at all those lil' babies! you got a whole nursery there!
  13. Mosaic is one of those colours that's very hit-or-miss, but this is definitely a hit. Everything's nicely defined, and I like that the tiles in the eyes aren't super overt.
  14. How many babies is too many babies? Congrats, though! It's always nice to find a surprise tucked away in your SDB The morphing potion incident was basically this: I was originally going to save my FFQ for January because I still don't have the buzzin avatar. But I got another grey faerie quest. So I figured, might as well use it now just in case. But I don't have the shop wiz. So I throw up a thread asking for a link to a green grundo morphing potion, as they're listed as the lowest on jellyneo at a little over 100k. The link posted was 700k. I wince, but I buy it, because I figure it's just inflation. And just after I use the potion on Poxic, I think, oh no, what if one of the other potions was cheaper? I check it after I completee the quest, and... it was. The brown MP is only ~120k. So that was nearly 600k down the drain Oh well...
  15. Very cool! What a creepy little fella! And hey, 8 mill saved is no small chunk of change! Plus, yeah, TNT is not exactly known for giving people heads-up about things like that, so it's a wise choice. I got a FFQ from the grey faerie a couple weeks ago. It's just a nice little surprise, isn't it? I just painted my grundo steampunk, so not quite the savings you got (especially after a very costly mistake with the morphing potion which we will not speak about... ) but I also don't have that many more pets left to paint, so it seemed the best option.
  16. The ray has already been fired... Whoa... did it actually work? Sure looks like it. Your Petpet has been transformed. Imagine that. Why is it so grumpy.........
  17. it looks like those realistic airbrushed plastic toys you get at the dollar store, nice! the costume is super cool, too!
  18. probably both. also paint brush prices are suuuper inflated right now, so people are definitely being a little more careful about what pets they paint.
  19. The ray is fired at Movario... ... and she changes colour to Marble!! The ray has already been fired... Whoa... did it actually work? Sure looks like it. Your Petpet has been transformed. Imagine that.
  20. Most of my trades have just been 1-2 caps haha, I do not have anywhere near the patience or the RL funds for anything more than that. Kinda makes sense that no one wants caps for anything over 3-4 though, because of the gift box thing, it wastes way less boxes to do a one-to-one trade than sending over twenty items! Idk what TNT were thinks with that (except I guess that it would get them more money). I don't blame you for getting out of the cap game. It's basically just lootboxes. I've had problems with lootboxes in other games the past (main reason I stopped playing overwatch), where I would spend RL money I didn't have on them. Limited edition stuff was the worst for that, and most of the NC items are limited edition, aren't they? I was lucky in that I only spent about $500 across a few games before I managed to get out, but I've met people who have dropped upwards of $30,000 on them, so now I gotta be real strict with myself about that. It's part of the reason why I've avoided playing around with customization, it would just be waaaay too easy for me to think "oh I'll just spend $20......." and get back into that cycle of spending. Admittedly I did cave and buy some mystery caps a few years ago when I was in the middle of a breakdown, but since then I've managed to keep away and just done trading with what I have for specific BGs, and then only when I can't find a NP item that works. And the baby spring paint doesn't look terrible on some species. I guess it's maybe more valuable because it's one of the few items that can be worn by babies? And baby is such a popular colour... do you still own it or did you trade it away? Yeah, younger accounts are really out of luck, aren't they? Except for trudy's, I guess. FC and stocks is the main way I make my NPs, too. And oof, what a time to join. That doesn't really leave much time to get into the site before it all fell apart. I really wish that they would put more effort into getting the games back. They were very much the face of the site, after all. I especially miss kiko match and sutek's tomb, those were my favourite games (so relaxing!), I would play them even when the point scores weren't very favourable. And saaaame, I'm pretty much just here because I like the little stories I've made up for my pets. But that's just me making my own fun, and it's really not for everyone.
  21. As someone who is a semi regular on the PC, yeah, same lol And aren't lutaris otters? Or are they based on a different animal? They look like otters to me haha That's rough that you lost your item like that. I know it's a 'fun quirk of the species' and all that, but... oof, especially if you don't know about it, that's not a fun way to find out! Honestly, I wonder if TNT has thought about changing it over the years, like they changed the blue and boochi random events. Can you imagine something like that being introduced today? There would be so much complaining!
  22. I have decided that despite the fact that I hate the petpet labray.... a gold petpet for my new pirate buzz would be just too perfect. So, here I go: The ray has already been fired... But... nothing happens. It makes a kind of 'zzrrrppptttt' sound before shutting down completely. The creepy Kookith shoos you away and appears quite angry, so you hightail it out of there before he shoots some miniature laser beam at you or something. Looks like you'll have to come back tomorrow.
  23. That is a snazzy waistcoat! Fair enough on taking your time. I kind of have it lucky because I don't really do customization except backgrounds, so I'm able to 'finish' my pets quite quickly. It must take forever to come up with those customs, to say nothing of actually gathering all the items up! Especially given how draining trading NC items can be. But they do look nice, in the end! Your mutant draik is still my fave, though! That's a sweet gesture for your sister, although yeah I can see why she lost interest. Unless you like customization or restocking, people on neopets pretty much have to make their own fun these days! And idk, I once bought an item from a guy that had 7 alien aishas, so... the option to repeat the same species/colour is definitely there. I wish I'd save his username. Love to go back and check if he's got more now. Also wow that's a lot of rocks! That must be expensive.
  24. Ugh, yeah, the pound chat can be awful sometimes. Like, cmon, no one likes a narc! Honestly, if a skeith did that to me, I'd hold a grudge, too. Did he just eat it on his own or did you accidently feed it to him? That's the main reason I don't have any grarrls, despite really liking that species! I just don't want to risk it. Ok I'm glad someone else thought "murder board/trophy wall" and it wasn't just me. Staying under the radar is 100% your best bet. You don't want your face to get eaten, after all! I'm with you on Chias and Quiggles. Them and Jubjubs, Kikos, Nimmos and Techos are my 'no go'... so Round and Creepy Fingers seems to be my squick factor! The moehogs are nice, although tbf I really like pigs and boars IRL, so that probably has something to do with it. And I absolutely love buzzes, but I get why a lot of people don't given the insect-y-ness of them!
  25. Oh, I completely forgot about the Desert colour! Yeah, that would fit in perfect. (And now I really want more PBs based on ancient civilizations. Just off the top of my head, Altadorian PB could based on ancient Greece, I'm not sure what RL civilization they based the Lutari off of, but there's another, and I would sell my soul for a PB based on ancient Assyrians/etc or Vikings...) And yes, crosspaint's another excellent theme idea, especially since you seem to be so good at coming up with them! That hallo/royal ruki cross is... actually kind of gross, but in a good way! Funny, I have the same rule with species, barring a few particular species. Colours, though, I absolutely will repeat lol. I have the same rule with petpets, barring repetition where it makes sense.
