Read Story So Far

Into the Deep Catacombs...

Ah, hello there young neopet! I see you have come for a story. We have many stories here, many tales to be told and read. Look around at these shelves, and delve into as many books as you want. I guarantee there will always be more than you could possibly imagine.

Go on, don't be shy! Look, they're even divided by type of story. Over here, I have adventure stories. If you're looking for romance, try that shelf. Oh, and don't forget the biographies.

If you're looking for history, we have that, too. I'm afraid that much of our source material is in storage, but you can enter that through the side door over there.

Chosen Option: Browse the adventure stories

Did anyone say boo?

You wander over to the shelves holding the adventure stories. A quick scan confirms the librarian's assertion. All sorts of spine-tingling adventures await!

You mull over which story to start reading. There's several stories with the usual sorts of dangers in them- The Esophagor, the Ghost Lupe, and other spooks. Then there's stories of pet-eating cannibals on Mystery Island, spooky tombs in the Lost Desert, lost caverns of ice in Terror Mountain...

The list goes on and on, and so does the clock as you enjoy looking through the options. Better make a decision as to which story you want to read, and ignore those shadows moving in the corner.

Chosen Option: The shadows assume form...

Uh-oh, what's this?

A flapping sound finally pulls you out of your books. Looking up you see a couple of red eyes glaring at you. Uh-oh! You cringe back against the shelf behind you, staring upward in fear. The shadows resolve to assume the vague shape of a Korbat, who is now perched on the top of the shelves.

"Hehe, so, another would-be adventurer? You don't know what you're getting into!"

You gulp back a lump in your throat. "What's that mean?"

The korbat cackles again. "You're seeking fake thrills, pet! This isn't the place for you, no sirreee! These thrills are real!"


"Still not a clue, I see. Well let me spell it out. Get too involved in one of these books, and you'll get sucked into them- literally! You become part of the story! Now, unless you want to be a helpless wench at the mercy of a pirate's cutlass, I'd recommend putting that book you're holding back on the shelf."

Before you can think of anything to say, the flutter of wings sounds again and the Korbat has vanished. Wierd! You look down at the book he mentioned and wonder whether to take all that talk seriously.
