The Void Within - plot coverage guide at SunnyNeo

Starting in 2023, Neopets launched a much anticipated and engaging plot on site called The Void Within. This detailed and completely developed plot is the first that Neopians have seen in nearly a decade.

Headed by CEO TNT Dom and his team of content writers, Neopets stages the scene that something strange is happening in Neopia. Citizens are turning gray, there are strange sightings, and characters are having frequent, disturbing visions of the future. The best part? This is only the beginning.

TNT will continue to feature over 10 months of content through traditional events like the Advent Calendar and Festival of Neggs to different game-based platform apps such as Tales of Dacardia and ongoing AMA livestreams.

Join us at SunnyNeo as we follow The Void Within from beginning to end with detailed timelines, character lore and development, unhinged theories from SN staff and the community, and timeless graphics for you to enjoy!

There's a lot of information related to the plot, we've summarized everything we know so far here.

Festival of Neggs (2023)

  • Orion O. Ophiuchus: first introduced, has a family legacy in the "business of the stars" and using tarot cards.

Faerie Festival (2023)

  • Monty McTaggart: CEO of the Obsidian Mining Company, rather than using sustainable energy, they burned obsidian and produced a lot of pollution.
  • Malkus Vile: a secret and major investor in Monty's mining company. He hired Balthazar to bottle up Illusen. Malkus also mentioned that the plan to weaken the faeries was always the plan and came from someone above
  • Comic: Vira and a mysterious unknown Dark Faerie are scheming to weaken the faeries, hinting Queen Fyora suspects what will happen but won't tell anyone causing her mind will be overrun with fear and suspicion.

THE VOID WITHIN HAS OFFICIALLY COMMENCED! This is not a drill, please proceed to freak out in excitement. The Void Within plot homepage is now live! We'll be updating our coverage guide to cover the new developments!


Furthermore, TNT has released new NC Mall items and will be doing a giveaway! You can enter the giveaway at for a chance to win up to 7,500 NeoCash!!

Hi @everyone!! It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for…PLOT TIME 😤

I don’t know about ya’ll, but I’ve been so excited to finally be able to take part in a Neopets plot in real time. What is the plot you may ask? Well…have you noticed things getting a bit...grey around here? 👀

It’s not just Neopia getting tired of Kiko Lake taking our items—everything is literally becoming devoid of colour. Brace yourselves, because a mysterious rift has ripped the skies open, unleashing a powerful magic that threatens to eradicate Neopia’s existence.

But wait! A glimmer of hope appears. Nyx, an Aisha trapped on the other side of the rift, was able to survive the unforgiving enigma with the help of her trusty Faellie companion. Now, they may have found a way to escape, but a chilling question hangs heavy: even if they break free, will Neopia still be there for them to return to?

Their adventure takes them across Neopia, from the rolling meadows of Meridell to bustling streets of Neopia Central… and well, I can’t tell you everything yet (mostly bc TNT Aesop is watching).

An interesting cache of new items has taken over the NC Mall. In addition, team up with new faces to vanquish the villainous forces threatening Neopia!
Got questions unanswered? Check out our The Void Within FAQ here:

We’re also doing a giveaway! Enter here: for a chance to win up to 7,500 NeoCash.

The Void Within has now begun. Will our heroes be able to restore colour to Neopia? 🌌

Oh the humanity! The grey curse has swept across Meridell, turning it dull and making the King sad. Today is the day where Neopia changes forever. We're not sure what the bleak future holds, but we'll be working to document everything in our "The Void Within" coverage guide.

Oh dear, the Money Tree seems to be the latest victim of this wretched grey curse! The Money Tree has helped so many Neopians over the years; perhaps we should have been more grateful for all the assistance we've received or offered some gifts to one of Neopia's greatest benefactors. If you're wondering why the Money Tree no longer smiles, please check out SunnyNeo's The Void Within plot coverage guide. 🫡


"Take my money, Neopian, and go buy some food.
Feed your pets, and they will be happy."

So the Neopian gathered some Neopoints and carried them away.

And the tree was happy sad.

UPDATE: The board is now active and listed at the very top in the "Announcements" section.

UPDATE:  It appears that TNT temporarily removed the board for now, it might reappear again later to resolve some issues or when the plot officially launches.

As we approach the plot kickoff on June 17th, TNT has created a brand new board dedicated to the plot! The Void Within Board (or Board 58) is listed under the "General" "Announcements" section with the description: "Anything and everything about The Void Within Plot! Share feedback, strategies, and theorize."

Currently, this board appears to be inactive and you are unable to post in it. Attempting to post results in an error message stating that the board doesn't exist. Additionally, this board isn't listed on the unconverted Neoboards.


For more information about this plot, feel free to checkout SunnyNeo's The Void Within coverage guide!

We have received more disturbing news: Miles, the keeper of the Wheel of Knowledge, has turned grey! In addition, be on the lookout as there are a few new grey-themed prizes that can be achieved by the Wheel of Knowledge.

The Lord Kass themed social media customisation contest has concluded. Congratulations to the winners!

Social Media Post: Warning: Some VERY suspicious Neopets have been spotted in Darigan Citadel! What could they be looking for?

Congratulations to the winners of the Lord Kass Customisation Contest! Based on your votes, three (shifty) pets not only successfully snuck into Darigan Citadel and found some very interesting information about a certain Eyrie, but they've won some awesome prizes too!

🏆 First Place: Carlos G I with a convincing Darigan Spy!
🥈 Second Prize: Rodrigo V S with the coolest Cybunny in existence
🥉 Third Prize: David E with a Dark Princess with a skill for finding information!

We will be reaching out to winners shortly! 😈

What do you make of these notes?


Attached to the social media post is an interesting "fugitive file" image, hinting that Lord Kass may be alive. Witnesses claim to have seen Lord Kass when he was defeated, with new reports claiming his blade was seen near an "unknown Aisha" (probably Nyx.) Checkout SunnyNeo's The Void Within coverage guide for more details!

Image Transcription: Fugitive File: Lord Kass
Lord Kass was last seen during the attack on Meridell. Witnesses report he fled the scene. Abandoning both his blade and failed coup after a defeat at the hands of Lord Darigan.
There have been testimonials claiming he was destroyed at the hands of three hooded figures when he attempted to flee. This is unconfirmed.
Last known signs of Lord Kass remain at the sight of his disappearance where purple feathers beside a pile of ash. However, other testimonials stated that Trithduril disappeared without a trace from the battlefield where Lord Kass deserted it. Still unclear.
New reports have surfaced, where witnesses to strange visions are adamant they spotted the tainted blade in an undisclosed location alongside an unnown Aisha. We are investigating the possibility that Lord Kass survived and absconded elsewhere.
