The Book of Ages

Lania Cragg


Lania is a skilled builder, being involved in the construction of Coltzan's Shrine as one of her first projects. She has invented the Crabulator, a machine to quickly fabricate buildings. After the destruction of Dacardia, she arrived on the island to help rebuild.


Hello. Are you the young, fearless Town Planner I have been waiting all this time for? I am Lania Cragg, your forewoman. I am here to help rebuild Dacardia. A terrible storm destroyed this island. But I have the machine that will restore it. Behold, the Crabulator! The finest, crabbiest build-a-tron in all of Neopia. We will use it to give that poor, homeless Shoyru a new place to live. But first, we need my Molten Mixer to make building materials. Tap the Crabulator, it has the blueprints.
What are you waiting for? We need to make the Molten Mixer. It can create building materials for us to make houses with. My Crabulator has the blueprints. That big red machine. It looks like a Crabby. And has a lobster tail... What? Is that so strange?
Ah, there it is. Beautiful, no? New we are on our way to restoring Dacardia. To use the Molten Mixer, first we must gather resources. Our Shoyru friend here has agreed to help us. How noble and kind! The storm destroyed most gather points, but somehow, this farm survived. Whoever built it must have been almost as good as me! But only almost. Straw will be a good first resource to gather. Tap on the Fast-Grass Farm and select Straw. Our new friend will do the rest.
Good. We have a resource. Please follow me to the Molten Mixer to begin.
If we want to build, we must first make building materials. We can do this with the Molten Mixer. It can make materials out of almost any resources. But we do not have "almost any resource." All we have is Straw. So please use that. Tap on the Molten Mixer. Select the Straw. Then drag it over to the Mixer and drop it in. Simple.
This is a good start. All buildings will need to use materials. But for now, we will focus on building our friend a house.
At last, we are ready to build a Neohome for our new friend. We have both the materials and the blueprints. You can get the Dacardian Home blueprints from the Crabulator and place them where you like. Then tap-tap-tap to build!
Sufficient and speedy work. Now that we have given our friend a new home, their tears of sadness have turned to tears of joy. Look! They have given us a gift to say thank you, as well. How thoughtful! And there are so many more Neopets on the island who are in need of homes too... So we will help them all. We will make them all cry! ... With happy tears, of course.
Uh oh. I spy a sneaky journalist Chia sniffing about. She had better not get in the way. I cannot waste time with newspapers. Not when there is still much to finish in this town. Speaking of which, I saw a sign when I came here. But it was broken. I believe it has the town's name on it. If we are to restore the town, we must also restore its name. I already have the Town Sign blueprints in the Crabulator. Please select them and build.
All finished? Yes, I see. It looks like it is all in order. But something is still missing... Ah! Silly Lania. I forgot to tell you that we need to name the town. The locals have asked us to come up with a new one so they can forget this tragedy. Tap the Town Sign to write the town's new name.
I saw you speaking with that reporter. I hope you told her to shoo. I do not have time to waste while there are still homeless Neopets. We must make our building process more efficient. Tools can help us gather better resources. We can make them in the Workshop... Ah. But there is no Workshop to craft tools in, I see. The storm must have destroyed it. But that is okay. I have blueprints for a new one in the Crabulator.
Now we will be able to craft tools. Tools will allow our Neopet friends to gather more strange and useful resources. Unless they are like my old useless crew and leave me alone to run off on a silly adventure! I mean... *Cough!* Never mind. It does not matter.
I have been thinking. While I looked around, I noticed the houses were very plain. Boring. No "oomph." That will not help our Dacardian friends feel better about this tragedy. But we can fix this. We can build a Dacardian Shop to craft pretty decorations. I know they always cheer me up! ... Er. The building of them cheers me, I mean. Ahem. I have the blueprints for the Antiquity-Fixity, the decoration shop, in the Crabulator. You know what to do, yes?
I see you are still as competent as ever. Good. Now we can make the whole town look even better. What? I may be the best builder in all of Neopia, but that does not mean we cannot improve on perfection.
Many Neopets lost their prized possessions in the storm. Like their precious decorations. We cannot give them back. But we can give them new ones. A Bamboo Flag will work nicely. You can make one in the Antiquity-Fixity. Just combine Bamboo and Burlap Cloth.
Sufficient work. This will look most pleasing on display in the town.
Decorating Dacardia will make everything feel cosier. The Neopets living here will surely feel more at home once we place our decorations. Since you just made a Bamboo Flag, you can start with that. I will let you choose where to put it. I am only a builder - you are the planner.
The island already looks much nicer. Decorations are great for making your town look pretty and unique.
The water here is so pretty, I wonder if I have time to... Ah! Oh, it is you. I did not see you there. But do not worry; I was not thinking of swimming! We still have much to build. Like somewhere to get food! Yes, I have noticed that many of the Neopets here are walking around with empty bellies. That will not do. But I have the solution: Omelettes! I was once commissioned to build a new Giant Omelette Slab in Tyrannia. That project was scrapped. But I kept the blueprints! And now we can bring them back for Dacardia.
What a tasty-looking building. I am excited to eat. And I am more excited to see our friends enjoy a hot meal. Do you cook? We should make the first meal as a special gift.
*Sniff* ... Ah. What a delicious smell. It is already making me feel better. And I was not even sad in the first place. But I think some of our Neopet friends still are. We should feed them. Hot food always lifts the spirits, after all. To cook, gather food resources, such as seaweed, from places like farms, beaches, and oceans. Then tap on the Omelette Slab, drag your food resources onto it, and voila!
What a fine Omelette. I think our Neopet friends will enjoy it. ... Even if there are not enough peppers.
That was a nice lunch break. But enough sitting around like Slogmoks. If we want to cheer up Dacardians after their loss, we should continue decorating their town. Perhaps we should make a Water Spout. After their lunch, they will need a good drink of water. Please craft one by using the recipe in the Antiquity-Fixity's catalogue.
What a wonderful Water Spout. Now to find the perfect place for it...
Functional and fashionable. The Water Spout is one of my favourite decorations. I even have one in front of my home. I think Dacardians will appreciate it, too. Please open the decoration menu and select the Water Spout. Drag and place it where you think it will look best.
The town now looks much more developed. I think our Neopet friends will agree you have done well.
I have been speaking with some locals. One in particular is quite upset over losing their prized garden in the storm. Luckily, I have an idea to help. We should make them a Flower Pot. Who does not like flowers? ... Besides me, of course. I am more of an iron-and-rivets kind of Lutari. The recipe for Flower Pots is in the Antiquity-Fixity's catalogue. You will need to collect Rocks and Soil to craft one.
Your craftmanship and your gardening skills are both above average. I sm sure this will look very pleasant in front of a Neopet's new home.
This town looks like it needs some garden variety. That is where you come in, yes? Please find a suitable place for the Flower Pot you just made. That will spruce the place up! Just open up the decorations menu and drag it to where you want it to be displayed.
I am still not so good with plants, but they have started to grow on me. Maybe it is just that you are good at planning. Or planting. Or planning AND planting. I am sure the Neopets living here will agree, though: everything is coming up roses!
Thank you for the blueprints, Miss Ariel. But what is it you are asking me to build now? Not another cafe, I hope. I have already said no to a second one.
Trading, you say? Hm... yes. I can see how that would help. If we can trade with other towns, we can get more diverse resources. Maybe not for coffee, though.
This is also true. Very well. We will build your Trading Stall. Thank you for the blueprints.
Finished! What do you think?
Yes, well, I do not need coffee to build things quickly. I am a professional.
No thank you. We still have things to build. Perhaps another time.
We have managed to build lots of different sorts of buildings already. I think we have done quite well! But we can always improve upon perfection... with upgrades! My Crabby-bots are eagre to apply new additions to buildings. They will not stop beeping and chattering about it. And I agree with them. I am excited to build more, too. Let us begin by upgrading the Crabulator to level two. Tap the decoration button to open the menu. The tap the Crabulator. You can use your Building Materials to upgrade.
Oh! It is... lovely! More magnificent than even I could have dreamed! I am almost moved to tears. But there is not time for me to be sniffing over my pride and joy. Let us put this upgrade to good use. By building, of course!
We have made a good start with this town. But there are many other regions on this island to explore. Many more buildings to build. Many more opportunities to help. I would like to go to these new regions. But I think before we do, I should let you be more creative with your projects. I have pushed you very hard - "Build this, build that!" And we do need to keep building. But it is time I let you decide what to build, craft, and decorate with. And while you do, I will do the paperwork to go to other regions.
You have been busy. I have, too. I wrote many letters and signed many forms. Health forms. Safety forms. And even a poem. It is called "Build." That is also the only word in it. I am sorry to have kept all the fun from you like a greedy Grackle Bug. But you will forgive me when I tell you the good news: a new region has now been cleared of debris! We may now restore this new, unknown land. But before we go, I have a gift for you. It is to say thank you. You do not have to thank me in return... But I will not stop you.
Is that what is making all the smoke? We can fix it for you.
Bah. Do not worry. I took a course on Virtupets spacecraft. So we can repair even the most broken of spaceships. Just watch. And please do not interfere.
Yes. That is what I told you. Now if you will excuse us, we have other places to build. Good day, Mister Noisy Grundo.
Bah. I do not need this title.
I have been hearing some feedback from our Neopet friends. They are pleased with the reconstruction we have done so far, but they are worried Dacardia still feels empty. I think before we move on, we should focus on pleasing our friends. We can make more decorations and upgrade more buildings. As I always say, we can still improve upon perfection!
It is amazing what a few minor improvements can do for morale! Our Neopet friends have been telling me how excited they are by the new improvements you have made. Well done! Now, let us move on to the next area.
Are you finished playing around with that bumbling Grundo? I am worried he will slow us down with his nonsense. We must stay focused. Ah! See? I was so busy thinking about Mister Zerix I almost did not notice this sad, broken Statue. But that can be our next job: repairing the Statue and restoring this park!
A Gnorbu. But he has too many arms. That is not a flaw in my design, though. It must have some meaning. Neopets do not make statues for no reason. Maybe this Gnorbu was a revered figure. I do not know. But I do know this statue is magnificent. And your restoration of it is top-notch.
This area is very empty except for Mister Gnorbu. I think to make it stand out, and to show off our work, we should beautify the park. Please craft and place three Stone Statues. I think adding some Dark Crater Rocks to existing Statues will suffice... There were some near Mister Zerix's ship, were there not?
As always, you planning is sufficient. Now this park looks much nicer. I think it will be a pleasant place for our friends to take walks.
My Molten Mixer cannot make something out of nothing. I am still working on that upgrade. For now, we will need resources. Like Straw. Tap on Fast-Grass Farm. Then tap on Straw to have your Neopet friend gather it.
Now what is holding you up? Is the Molten Mixer too hot? Do not worry. It will not hurt you. Just drop the Straw over the top of it.
The blueprints for our Shoyru friend's Neohome are in the Crabulator. They are called the "Dacardian Home" blueprints.
Dacardia is not a well-known province. Making a Town Sign will help to bring attention to this small and humble island. Tap the Crabulator to get the blueprints for the Town Sign.
A great builder once said you cannot do everything with paws and claws. Sometimes you need tools. And that builder... was me! Ha ha ha! Okay, the time for jokes is over. Back to building. Tap on the Crabulator to get the blueprints for the Workshop, and then build it. Please.
My Crabby-bots are restless. I think giving them something to do will be good for them. Something like building the Antiquity-Fixity. Tap the Crabulator for the blueprints.
Where is the Bamboo Flag? Did you forget how to make one? It is easy as cake. Combine Bamboo and Burlap Cloth in the Antiquity-Fixity.
I do not know where the Bamboo Flag will look best. I do not have an eye for decorating. Please press and hold on the Crabulator to place the Bamboo Flag.
Omelette is a good, hearty meal. Especially for builders. It makes us strong. Please get the blueprints for our new Omelette Slab from the Crabulator. Then we can feast.
I am not so good at cooking. I like spicy food, but other Neopets cannot handle their spice very well. That is too bad. So I will leave the cooking to you. But if you want a recipe... try Seaweed with some other foods. Please drag the ingredients onto the Omelette Slab to cook for them.
Making decorations is like building houses: easy... if you know what to do! And what you should do to make the Water Spout is combine a Coconut and some Bamboo.
Where would the best place to put the Water Spout be? Bah! There are so many good choices. I will leave it to you. Tap on the Decorate button and drag the Water Spout to place it.
I may be good at building, but gardening is not so simple. For me anyway. I have tough claws and no green thumbs. I might hurt the poor flowers. So I will leave it to you. Please try putting together some Rocks and Soil in the Antiquity-Fixity to make a Flower Pot.
I have read that playing with plants is calming. You have been working hard. You deserve this small break. But only a small one! We still have much to do. Open the decoration menu and choose where to put the Flower Pot. I trust you to choose the best spot.
Miss Snips. Do you mind telling me why my Crabby-bots are bringing me mail for the Neopian Times?!
Blueprints? What for?
This is... most kind of Neopians! Very good. I accept their gift. We will build this Wheel of Offers at once.
I knew the Neopian Times was read all over Neopia, but I did not think Miss Snips's article would make them want to help Dacardia... I am touched. I think this Wheel of Offers will do much to lift spirits... and to help Dacardians get back on their paws.
It is... Hm.
That is not what I would say. It is not really my style. But we should not look a Gift Uni in the mouth. Instead, we must find a way to thank our friends in the rest of Neopia...
Miss Ariel has a good point. A Trading Stall will build community. And it will help us with our other building projects, too.
A building may look good at first. Especially if it is my design. But I say you can always improve perfection. I have drafted some improvements to the Crabulator. Tap the decoration button, then tap the Crabulator. Upgrade it to level two using your Building Materials.
I am working on getting our next project started. I will let you know when it is ready. For now, keep planning. Keep building. I am looking forward to seeing your skills at work.
Some of our Neopet friends have told me that they wish to see more decorations. Others would like exiting buildings to be upgraded. Some would even like to see all new buildings. There are many options for taking Dacardia to the next level. Why not "experiment," as Ariel would say?
For the last time, I have already filled out your safety forms. And I have my goggles.
You are driving me crazy! Bah. I cannot take this anymore. He will not leave me alone. Can you please distract him? I do not care how. Do anything. Build a dance floor if you think it will work. I even have blueprints for a Disco Hall in the Crabulator.
Mister Noisy Grundo. Look over there. A dance hall. We have just finished building it. But I am not sure it meets all safety regulations. The dance floor is very bright, after all.
Yes, yes. I know that one too. Good-bye.
Finally, he is gone. Thank you for getting me out of that. Now at last we can return to rebuilding this city without worrying about Zerix putting helmets on my Crabby-bots. Hmph. He is not even here and he is still bothering me! We must focus on Neohomes now. How else will the Neopets here be protected from erupting geysers and crazy safety Grundos?
I am Lania Cragg, greatest builder in Neopia. This is my Town Planner. We are here to rebuild. I was told you are the mayor of Mystic Jungle, yes?
I know. But I have a permit, and you have injuries.
Lovely. Now more Neopets can move back in. And we can make more friends. Then we will be less lonely. Ah - not that I am lonely. Or that I am concerned with making new friends. *Cough.* But enough talking. What is next?
Or course they have. I am no slacker.
Sure, sure. Your silly idea is good. And while you send our Neopet friends to the Glitterbug Disco, I will go build... Ah, I mean fill out more safety forms.
I do not see why there would be any panicking. I made sure everything about the building was sound.
*Ggrumble* *mumble* First the safety problems. Now questioning my design... *Grumble.* Fine. Then I will need some Paint.
You may wonder how I have blueprints for things I have never seen before. It is because I am an expert. I can look at broken things and know what is missing. And then I can improvise new designs. Like the Statue. I have not been wrong yet. That is why I am the best builder in Neopia.
What are you up to over here? ... Ah! You have painted a Neohome. It is... sparkly. And shimmery. And not displeasing. Satisfying work. Taking this off my claws has been a big help.
Yes. I am.
Gather, craft, and build! Bah! We will show you.
I do not like that mister Chief doubts us. But if we are going to win him over, we will have to play within his rules. You know what to do. Craft his Scissors. And make them the best Scissors he has ever seen.
Behold! Scissors!
Of course. I told you we were the best.
Poor Mister Chief.
Say no more. We will help you build your Camp.
(A simple 'thank you' would suffice...)
Mister Chief. Please look at all the hard work we have accomplished.
Good! Then you will see all our excellent achievements.
Neggs, hm...
What do you mean, 'carried away'?
That is polite?! Hmph! I will pretend I did not hear that. And we will make beautiful Negg decorations! I never thought to use Jungle Neggs for decorations before. There are so many more possibilities for us now! I am sure Mister Chief will not mind if we take some...
Good choice. I cannot wait to see what you will make with them.
Of course. I am always looking to improve and make new decorations and blueprints.
We took enough. Do not worry, Mister Chief. What we make with them will be beautiful. I promise.
Even after all this time Mister Chief does not believe we can make nice decorations. Bah! It is true I am a tough Lutari. But that does not mean I do not know what is pretty. I know how to make decorations Neopets will like. Take those Jungle Neggs to the Antiquity-Fixity and work your magic.
That is an interesting choice. I am sure Mister Chief will like it.
What do you think?
What?! Are you saying that even still, you doubt our skill?!
... Oh. Then thank you.
We are not 'barging ahead!' We are inspecting damages. And it is worse than I thought. There is a giant hole in the ground.
And... we are done! Now everyone can once again gather the fresh natural resources you can been bragging about, Mister Chief. So? Do you finally believe in us?
Hm. We will think about it... Bah! Who am I kidding? Of course we will help. I accept your poor apology.
I can see that. I should eat some too. To become and even bigger, stronger Lutari!
I am no thief! And you will shut your beak or fix this Jungle yourself with your poor broken wing. We only want to find some new resources for crafting.
We do not need too many decorations. Clutter is bad, yes? But we do want enough to bring attention to this park. I think three Stone Statues will work. You can use Dark Crater Rocks and Crabby Statues to make Stone Statues.
Ah. This is our final test, yes? Then say no more. We will fix the Hissi Statue!
It was not easy... But now it can use its big, shiny eyes to shoot lasers at all lazy reporters on the island. And anyone who will not help with reconstruction.
Wise? I hope she was wise enough to trust others to help her construct the village.
Hello, Miss Ariel. What is the problem now?
I must interrupt your caffeinated rambling. Please take a small break and walk off your jitters. We will fix your Power Gem.
... Whay hypothesis?
... My faith in you has taken a big big boom.
It looks like it is not working. That is troubling. We should go speak with Ariel.
Miss Ariel. There is a problem with your solution. The Conservatory did not work.
Did it work?
Will that not put them in danger?
... Is there room under that umbrella for me?
Goodness. This Ruki might be worse than the storm.
Oh, great. We have finally impressed Mister Chief, and now Miss Snips is here to - will you stop looking for finger prints on my Crabby-bots?!
Bah. Your "investigating" is interfering with building, as always! And trying to steal my friend - I mean Town Planner - away too. Shame on you.
I do not understand why you are so obsessed with mysteries. They are tedious and not fun at all. But I tell you what IS fun. Building Neohomes!
There! All finished. And it looks excellent. See? I told you this was better than mysteries.
This is a good step in restoring Mystic Jungle. Now we can...
I bet your pardon?!
... Hm. I hate to admit it, but you might be right. For once. Let us get to it, then. Please craft a Jungle Paint Roller.
Hm... I am not so sure about this. But I will trust your judgement. You have a better eye for style than Miss Snips, at least...
I did not mean to make Miss Snips so huffy. Oh well. We have more important things to do...
No! In fact, we have made a Paint Roller to make this Neohome look more like it fits in with the rest of the jungle.
Mister Chief is so picky. I hope the Paint Roller you have Miss Snips made is good enough for him. Bah! What am I saying? If he does not like it, I will make him. Please choose a Neohome to paint. When you have found the one you want, open the decorations menu. You can find your Jungle Paint Roller in the Roller tab.
And... voila! A jungle home. Now Mystic Village really looks like it is coming together.
One chance is all we need.
It is almost as if the storm never happened! We have done much good work here. And yet still, I feel as though our work is not finished...
Is that so? This is sounding dangerously close to a mystery. But if this monument was a part of Dacardia at one point, then I will build it. It sounds like it will help you, too.
Miss Snips has a very strange style of decorating. I think she should leave that job to you.
I know crab can be tasty, but please do not try to eat my Crabby-bots. They are not food.
Miss Snips is very persistent. If only she was persistent about building...
What do I like to do in my spare time? Bah! I have no spare time. I am always working.
It is tragic that these Neopets lost their homes. I am happy to help them.
I do not like laziness. But I am almost impressed Miss Ariel can sleep standing up. Almost.
Miss Ariel is an odd girl. But she is very helpful.
Coffee is fine, but I prefer a nice hot cup of Borovan.
I built my own home. Or maybe I am still building it. It is always improving. Like Dacardia.
The world could always use more builders.
The Crabby-bots are restless. Maybe I need to give them more projects.
Why does my Crabulator have a lobster tail? Good question.
Have you been to the Lost Desert? I helped to rebuild Coltzan's Shrine. It was my first job. Ah... such good memories.
I am tired of this story. Please let us get to it.
Your safety regulations are important. I know this. But will you please let me do my job?
Gaaaah! Do you not have anything better to inspect? Like a Disco? (So we do not have to hear you over the music?)
We will need more than one Neohome. I think three is a good start. I want to build many more, of course. But Mister Zerix will be back soon...
The Workshop may be all the way back in the peninsula town, but it will be worth the travel time when we win Mister Chief's trust with our perfect Scissors.
What sort of decorations do you make with Jungle Neggs? Since you're such an expert on what is pretty.
Miss Snips just does not know when to quit. Will she ever stop making things difficult for us?
Bah. We must save ourselves from this nonsense. Please build a Neohome.
I cannot believe Miss Snips and I are working together on this.
Thank you for giving those blueprints to us, Miss Snips. I believe this Wheel of Offers will be a wonderful help. You may go now.
Neopians do enjoy their shops. What sort is it?
I am sure we can come up with something. Let me see the blueprints... Ah. "Premium Emporium." So this is a shop for fancy and rare items. I am looking forward to building this!
And... it is done!
Ha ha ha! A pro is right. I made some improvements myself. After all, a place that sells premium items must also look "premium" itself, yes?
Hm? Why did I suggest starting with a fountain? Ah. It is simple. Fountains often remind me of my home. I find them very comforting. Hm. That reminds me... When I was a little Lutari, my mother would take me to the park. I always liked the big fountain in the middle. So much that one day, I dove in when my mother was not looking! Every time she turned around, I splashed her. And then she jumped in and splashed me back! Ha ha! That day is one of my fondest memories. Perhaps we should try to recreate it. We do not need to create a park, exactly. Just somewhere relaxing. I will leave the details to you, since you are the Town Planner. Please start by placing the Fountain Spring.
There were many things about that day in the park that made it stand out to me. The fountain was only the beginning. And it will be the beginning of our perfect relaxation spot for our friends, too. Once you place the Fountain Spring.
Ah! Good choice in placement. Seeing the Fountain Spring there has made me eager to keep decorating. I think our friends will like it, too. And maybe while they are enjoying this fountain... they will even jump in! Like me! ... When I was a child, I mean. I do not wish to jump in now... Really.
Sometimes, while I played at the park, my mother would sit on the bench near the fountain. Before it was time to go, she would make me sit with her. She used to tell me stories. But the bench was very... splintery. So one day, I said, "Enough!" And fixed it so it would no longer poke us. We could sit together in peace. Fixing that bench taught me I could do anything. Perhaps we can help make memories like that for our friends by making them a Driftwood Bench, too.
Where did I get the tools to fix the bench? Ha! I made them myself. I was a very resourceful Lutari, even then. You do not need to craft tools to make a bench. Except maybe to gather Driftwood, which you will need for the Driftwood Bench.
Your Driftwood Bench looks adequately sturdy. Now to place it...
There. That looks like the perfect place to relax. I believe our friends will have many soothing naps on it... and tell many stories to each other, as my mother did with me.
Sometimes, a Buzz would come through the park to sell flowers. He pushed them around in a little cart. Even then, I did not care for flowers. But my mother did. I remember her favourites were the big yellow ones. Mister Flower Buzz would smile when she complimented them. Perhaps a Flower Cart will make our friends smile, too. Mister Flower Buzz used to travel the whole park with his Flower Cart. You can make one by adding a Bicycle Wheel to a Happy Planter. To make it move, yes?
Ah, of course. Fertilizer. That was a good idea. Now we have a Bushy Bush... and we will be able to make many more.
The bushes were the best places to hide, but there were other good hiding spots, too. I saw many of the others hiding behind trees. Or climbing them. Or picking apples. Bah! Everyone knows that trees are meant for treehouses. Of course, I built one in the park. It was wonderful for having tea parties and sharing apples with my plushies... Er. I mean, sketching blueprints for houses for my plushies, of course. No matter! Let us focus on growing Apple Trees.
I know you can grow Apple Trees if you use proper nutrients. And your Fertilizer grew Bushy Bushes from Small Bushes, yes? I wonder if it will also grow Apple Trees from Apple Seeds. But perhaps you will need something stronger, like Rich Fertilizer.
With those Apple Trees, the Bushy Bushes, and our Flower Cart, I think we are at last ready to begin assembling our park.
Inspiration can come from the strangest places. My old happy memories have inspired all these decorations. And maybe these decorations will inspire our Neopet friends, too. Or... they could further inspire us! Do not forget: we can expand on these decorations, too. And move them. Dacardia is always evolving.
And there we have it. The Mountain Monument. But it looks... unfinished?
I am finished! But I think the blueprints were not. There is something missing from this desgin, but I do not know what it is.
There will be no talking you out of this, will there? Fine. I suppose it is better than playing with other mysteries...
I see you have been busy as a Buzz lately, chasing mysteries that have nothing to do with my blueprints.
A treasure hunt! Bah! I knew it. You have no interest in helping me at all, Miss Snips. You are only here for your silly wild Gobbler chase.
That is... not the most ridiculous idea you have had. So we will try this idea. Let me see the map. It says the key is inside the Gnorbu Statue... So let us try upgrading it.
I do not like treasure hunts. But Miss Snips is the only one who knows where we might find the blueprints we need. I will choose to trust her. For now.
Bah. Just upgrade the Gnorbu Sage Statue.
*Gasp* The statue... it is opening!
And blueprints! ... This was just a lucky guess. But I will say 'thank you' for now, Miss Snips, but please do not interfere with my projects anymore.
It does not matter how we got the blueprints, I suppose. But I still do not like the idea of a treasure hunt. Too many Neopets have left me - I mean, building projects - for treasure... What am I saying? Let us just get to building. I am excited to see what the next part of the Mountain Monument is.
This has been quite fun for me. I am not used to building things that did not come from my blueprints. Let us see what the next part of the Monument is!
Miss Ariel, I'm afraid I do not have time to get coffee with you right now. I am busy figuring out what the next step in building this Monument should be.
Ah! Yes! The next piece of the Monument! Thank you very much. We will build it right away.
How did you find the missing blueprint? I wonder if Miss Snips was on to something with her investigation... Bah! That is crazy talk. I am sorry. Let us just continue building the Monument, yes?
It still looks unfinished! After all that, there is still more to find... *Sigh.* There's nothing we can do about it. We will just have to continue with Miss Snips's silly treasure hunt, I suppose.
It... looks better. But...
