The Great NC Scavenger Hunt

It's time to put your sleuthing skills to work in the Great NC Scavenger Hunt! For the week of May 21 - May 28th, 2014, Neopians can join up to three teams and use clues to search for special NC prizes!

In order to begin the hunt, you'll have to pick teams. You may pick one, two, or all three of the available teams. For each team you join, you'll need to buy a special satchel from the NC Mall to hold all the things you need to find. Each satchel costs 700 NC and is used for the entire week.

Prizes Galore!

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 team. You have a chance at a bonus prize when you activate a satchel within the first three days of the event (up to three bonus prizes, one from each team's satchel). Completing the hunt for one team (finding all of the items during the week's event) will let you choose your own bonus from a pool of items, while completing hunts for all of the teams during the event will award you an additional bonus prize on top of the three team prizes you choose.

Clue Hm, where could you find a floaty substance? Where do even rocks float? No, I won't tell you. You have to guess. Mwhahaha!
Location: Kreludor
The Island Faerie, Jhuidah, uses wrapping paper to wrap items for delivery. She won't mind sharing a roll with us! She likes wrapping gifts too.

My famous Kacheek colleague has many of these handy bowls. You can find him in a gingerbread house, next to a Uni statue.
Location: Bakery

Clue Oh, this will be an easy one for big game fans. That Yurble janitor probably hasn't even cleaned up the mess from last year yet...
Location: Hall of Heroes
You can't put a gift box together without tape! The stickiest tape for gift wrap is made by a snotty Meerca. Ew! Good luck, and stay safe.

Location: Neopet Popularity

May 23 Ciphette’s Mystery Search Lavisham’s Giftwrap Grab Noda’s Cookie Quest
Clue Decorative and delicious! I always get these gumballs at my favourite candy shop. They make good filler in the mystery capsules.
Location: Chocolate Factory
We're going to need some bows in various colours. There are lots of extra bows discarded by new Usuki owners at one of my favourite shops.
Location: Usukiland
I have no use for crumpets, but there is a Meerca who has a spare rolling pin that we're going to need. Ask nicely.
Location: The Crumpetmonger

I like to use these to give ribbons a lot of curl on a gift box. The master of springs and bouncy things is handing out these scissors with a demo.
Location: Springy Things
As a coincidence, we also need a thermometer. Ask a scientist about it, but be warned; he can be a little unpredictable.
Location: Aboard The Coincidence

May 25 Ciphette’s Mystery Search Lavisham’s Giftwrap Grab Noda’s Cookie Quest
Clue I always wave a wand when making a mystery capsule. A reclusive faerie in the land of ice cream enchants the best wands. Good luck!
Location: Snow Faerie Quests
Why use just one ribbon when you can use every colour? Someone left a box of white ribbons next to a certain pool and they fell in. Lucky for us!
Location: The Rainbow Pool
Isn't it high time we turned the tables and gave the faeries a quest? Fetch me some faerie dust. You know who to ask.
Location: Faerie Quests

Clue Don't worry. They're not nasty surprises, despite the source. On that note, you might NOT want to mention Illusen when you pick this up.
Location: Jhudora's Bluff
Sometimes I like to add a few polka dots. Okay, LOTS of polka dots. Anyway, you might try looking in a place that carries pencils and markers.
Location: Neopian School Supplies

Location: Mystery Island Mystic

May 27 Ciphette’s Mystery Search Lavisham’s Giftwrap Grab Noda’s Cookie Quest
Clue I like to send apprentices to a wise king -- not to spout attempts at wisdom, but to bottle the trumpet sounds made when the king is impressed.
Location: Wise Old King
It's a good idea to put one of these on a gift box before you forget what you wrapped. I like to get mine from the experts in Happy Valley.
Location: Winter Holiday Tags
I'm sure you know a kind earth faerie with a fondness for cookies. Borrow these cookie sheets, and be quick about it!
Location: Illusen's Glade

We mustn't forget something to line the inside of the gift box with something pretty! I know a certain Negg Faerie with a fondness for plaid.
