The NC Kidnapping Caper

Once again it's time to put your detective skills to the test in The NC Kidnapping Caper! From May 19th - May 25th 2015, Neopians can select up to three case files and use clues to investigate and search for special NC prizes!

In order to help solve the mystery, you'll need to pick case files. You may pick one, two, or all three of the available case files. For each case you join, you'll need to buy a special case file from the NC Mall to reveal all the clues needed to help solve the mystery. Each case file costs 700 NC and is used for the entire event.

To join the search, you'll need to activate your purchased case files. This can be done from your Inventory by clicking on the case file and selecting "Activate Case File" from the dropdown menu. Case files can also be activated directly after purchasing it on the confirmation page by clicking the "Open Case File" button. Only one of each case file per account is able to be activated. The case files may be gifted and used on side accounts. Now that your case files are activated you can visit the main page and start looking for clues. When there is a new clue to search for, on the main page a "view hint" link will be visible. In order to earn all your prizes, all clues must be found before the event ends on May 25th at 11:59PM NST. Clues may be solved on previous days if you happen to miss a day.

Participants in this event have multiple opportunities to earn bonus prizes, in addition to the daily prize from finding all the items for a specific case file. You have a chance at a bonus prize when you activate a case file within the first three days of the event. Completing the clues in one case file will grant another bonus from a pool of items. Additionally completing case files for all three categories during the event will award you an additional bonus prize on top of the three team prizes you choose.

Clue The faeries may know something, but they're all off betting on the races. Where did they go? Try starting with a place for people to report suspicious sightings! Someone with a royal knowledge for potions might be useful here.

Clue The Specialty Shopkeeper likes to read the archives for records of unique items; perhaps another Lenny could provide some insight. Few really know what happens in the Haunted Woods, but there is a certain camp with a good view. We should consult outside sources...maybe someone who deals in mystical surroundings can help.

Clue That Future Fashions girl is always out looking for new items, maybe even searching for buried treasure. There's a city that produces all the equipment they'd need to disappear, and some pretty fantastic lights. I wonder if they left any tracks in their getaway - a Blumaroo gardener would know!

Clue This is a real mystery, not a Roo Island contest! But a clue that rhymes could only be in one place. To blend in to the crowd, they'd need a change of clothes... probably something second-hand. To avoid being seen, they must have travelled at night, but maybe somebody who studies the skies saw.

Clue Someone must have seen their getaway. Why don't you try someone who gives tours all day? You can see all around when you're up in the air, just ask a Neopian with a fondness for springs. Follow those marks to a jungle village that is finally free.

Clue It's a lovely day for berry picking, despite the whole kidnapping thing that is... To get in the mind of a criminal, who better than someone who deals with them all day and has a... love of logic? That missing machine was the retired Faerie-theme; perhaps a water faerie who loves colors knows more?

Clue Only a couple suspects left! But it might take mystical help; see if a certain Yurble would be willing. You should always have some Neopoints on hand when running from the law. There is one national authority on that. We believe the shipment crate was meant to help feed some orbiting Grundos, wonder if it made it...
