Hello everyone - I have been on Neopets on and off for more than ten years across a few accounts, but have recently started playing more regularly. I'm racking up some avatars (149 as of today) and trying new games (I've been playing Faerie Bubbles, Snowmuncher, and Sutek's Tomb without really engaging with the site for years). I'm running a really bad plushie empire in my first game of Plushie Tycoon. My first color change with the lab ray got me Maractite, which is rad - I don't have a dream colour so it's a fun ride rather than stressful.
I'm a long time user of TDN articles and guides and look forward to being more involved with the community here.
