Introduction

What is the Atlas of the Ancients?
Neopia is in danger and it's up to Roxton A. Colchester III and his trusty companions to save the day... but they'll need your help to solve the mystery! The fate of Neopia hangs in the balance. If that weren't enough of an incentive to join the fight, you can also win prizes!

How do I participate?
If you'd like to participate, a good place to start is the comic! Follow Roxton's adventures and hunt for clues in the story. Then, set off on your own exploration of Neopia.

How do I win prizes?
It would ruin the fun if we told you exactly how to win, but we will say that you can earn prizes by solving the various plot puzzles. Just keep your eyes peeled and your wits about you, and you'll find the prizes.

This is great Joe please keep it up. I've moved this forum to the plot tracking forum. Hopefully JC can do that commentary tracking as we go along. And you can keep the guide up to date. This will be awesome. Thanks again man.

*sigh* I really hope this "plot" picks up somewhere, I'd rather not have some mini-plot with a splash of NC Mall only content to keep us busy.

If it does though, I at least hope the story is good. <_<

I think that it's obvious TNT are losing money, hence the constant requirement of NC Mall in plots. This plot feels rather interesting, has the same sort of flow as my random fan fictions, so I'll definately be keeping an eye out and their artwork looks fun.

Good News. I'm pushing the AutoTrainer. First release will be a basic. Single pet(Your active one). And training island only. Will intelligently level, and have minimize to tray option. Works off the Inventory > SDB > Wiz method.

Hopefully this will allow the weak pets to get some heavy training in. Will have auto-login if you manually log in via the program. I cant log you back in if you import cookies. Sorry.

I will release multipet/other trainer's in the next release. Just want the people with crappy pets to get their pets up to a higher standard so they can compete in the plot.

Lol.

Well, I generally forget about my pet being trained, so I waste like 30 minutes-2 hours before I forget, which could be utilized for more training.

:D

Intelli level has already been programed XD. Will ad an option to train agility also later on. Agility is pointless.
