Welcome, friend. It's getting so cramped in here for my petpets. It would be great if you could take one. Oh, hang on! I have to ask you first, are you from Qasala?
Yes, I am

Then I am afraid I can’t let you in.
No, I am not

Lovely! Take a look around.

Food Stall (Lost Desert Foods)
Quote:
Isn't it a rather sweltering day? You look like you could do with a Pyracone. Here, I have just the flav- Wait a sec; I haven't seen you around before. Are you from here? Answer this question first: How much does a card from the Lost Desert Scratch Card Kiosk cost?

Wrong! Don't hold up the line. I only serve the good folks of my city. Next, please!

Quote:
Absolutely! Come on in. Get in the shade. I have a huge variety of coolers to choose from.

Osiri's Pottery
Quote:
What can I do for you today, dear friend? I say ‘friend’ assuming you are not from Qasala. Tell me, how much do my famous Basketweave Vases cost a piece? If you are from the city, you should know.
2,232 NP
Quote:
Wrong! My wares once belonged in the private collection of Coltzan himself. Surely, you don't expect me to allow access to just about anybody. Sorry!
1,122 NP

Perfect. The finest pottery and earthenware collection in the land is here for your perusal.

Battle Supplies (Sakhmet Battle Supplies)
Quote:
Rare and exotic, these weapons will blow you away. But before you peep in, I need to be sure you are not a Qasalan native. Your papers, please!
I don't have any papers

Traitor! You cannot be allowed in on our battle secrets. Return to where you came from!
Here you go

Great! Don't mind me, buddy. Desperate times call for extra safety measures.

Emergency Supplies (Lost Desert Medicine)

I hate to do this but I need to ask you, are you from Qasala?
Yes, I am

Oh dear! I am meant to turn you down but go ahead and look around anyway. Make sure the guards aren't watching!
No, I am not
Quote:
Please go ahead and peruse the items here. I am sure you will find your cure.

Sutek's Scrolls
Quote:
The wisdom of our ancestors is contained upon these scrolls. But before you lay your hands on them, tell me, where are you from?
From Qasala
Quote:
Ancient wisdom cannot be passed on to just about anyone. I am sorry; I will have to refuse you.
Not from Qasala
Quote:
Then the wisdom will be in the right hands with you. Go ahead, take a look.

"Compelling the rulers of Qasala to crack the whip on him"?! Isn't that excessively violent for Neopets? Especially since he only failed to restore order during an insurrection - it's not like he was derelict or traitorous...

I'm worried I'll miss the start of our participatory activity. I can only check in about once a day, and sometimes I only have a few minutes.

Same here. This week has been crazy. Next week will be worse... 5 days worth of work in 3 days? Bah. The following week is 2 of five, since I will be traveling to NY for 3 days that week...

An answer in the Editorial suggests that Morgon (Brightvale Event) might have something to do with this event also.

If this is the case, then JS has been doing some serious forward-thinking on these events.

The urls on the Lost Desert Daily refer to missing heirlooms. So I wonder if they accidentally went missing due to Morgon? (Probably way off, but this is my theory contribution). :P

Edit: New update today.

Got the first "achievement." Not going to lie, I'm a bit surprised they're starting any sort of event today...shouldn't GMC have started today? It's traditionally been on Thanksgiving week...
I mean, not that I'm complaining at all. More just confused. I'm all for more events/plots/plevents. :)

Woot! New achievement done :)

The progression of Neopets is further forcing me away from Opera 12, my "dedicated" Neopets browser of choice. Best browser ever. Sadly, not updated for half a decade and cannot handle all of the 'new' stuff.

Well, dang. I didn't see that it started yesterday. *sigh* They really should give a full day+. I did my dailies in the morning.

Oh, wait... Am I good? Is only the "join the journey" achievement attainable now? If so, phew.

Yep, only the first achievement is available, so you should be fine.

As per usual, TNT are doling this event out in bits and pieces, as if they are working on it as they go along. There is still no official title, although the comic suggests, "Lyra and the Lost Heirloom".

EDIT: Update with Page 2 of comic.

Seems like we're getting semi-regular updates, actually. O.o Two newspaper articles, a Neopedia article, the mansion page itself, and now two "comic" updates. Definitely not complaining!

Update to the comic today with Chapter 2. Nothing to do yet.

Edit: 30th Nov Update to comic and a new area in the Lost Desert.

Ruins of Thanyros is named but leads to a 404 page at the moment.

ETA: Was this line there earlier? If it wasn't, they've added it to the prize shop page, and it looks like they're not taking it down. Curious, that they'd let us see the stuff ahead of time....
Quote:
The prize shop and its contents are now open for your perusal. Take a look around, you are bound to spot a thing or two (or more) that you fancy! You can’t have them just yet but you can sure set your eyes on the ones you’d like to grab the moment the shop is open for business. Happy browsing!


ETA2: This is clearly not a mistake at this point. TNT made it clear in the news...

They've reached the top of that old shabby wall, but it's what awaits them at the top that will surprise them… Also there appears to be a new prize shop preview take a look around and see if anything strikes your fancy. You can't have them just yet but you can start making a nice wish list.

....and Scrappy in the editorial:

New update: Chapter 4.

It seems we are getting closer to a proper step soon going by the comic. :)

Psst. There are already 5 chapters up.

I do have to say I find having to click the arrows for every single line of dialogue annoying (especially because they move around on the screen - if they were in the same spot every time, it'd be fine).

I'm already a little confused. Is Lyra's dad related to the coup? I should probably go back and reread everything, but I'm a little lazy...

Also, I would love a puzzly challenge to help Aurrick steal whatever it is.

Chapter 4: No Wall High Enough (there are 5 pages because chapter 1 had two pages)

I find it annoying as well to keep clicking next. There really is no reason for it. I don't actually read the dialogue until after I have been through it all first (just in case there is an activity to do).

I also think that we will get to help Aurrick do whatever he has to do. A puzzle will be great, as I am sure we will get to battle later on.

Lyra is the daughter of Aymas Xendrik, the current Warden of the Lost Desert and the protagonist of this event.

I have read and re-read the comic and both neopedia articles but nothing is sinking in with how it is all working out. :cry:

Oh, haha, I just assumed each page was a chapter. I didn't realize. Sorry!
