The History Capsule Adventure





What is the History Capsule Adventure?
The History Capsule Adventure is a site event currently running at the NC Mall. The news introduced the History Capsule Adventure on August 22, 2012:

Zylphia is all set to explore Neopia's past with her time machine, the chronomobile. Step into the chronomobile and start off on the History Capsule Adventure! A Mystery Capsule from each era will be dropped off at the NC Mall for you to investigate. What type of treasure will you bring back from Neopia's golden age?


From August 22, 2012 to September 25, 2012, you can explore the vast history of Neopia with Zylphia. Over this time period, 7 different Mystery Capsules will be released, each focusing on a different time period in Neopia's past. Buy at least one of each Mystery Capsule in the adventure and you will qualify for a special bonus prize. If you are lucky enough to find at least one limited edition bonus item in each of the 7 different Mystery Capsules in the adventure, you will also qualify for a second bonus prize. Keep an eye out though, because all of the Mystery Capsules in the adventure won't stick around the NC Mall until the end of the event!

Special Bonus Items
You can get two special bonus items for the History Capsule Adventure. First of all, you will get a bonus item if you buy all of the History Capsule Adventure capsules from the NC Mall.

There will be seven different capsules in the History Capsule Adventure:
- Sloth Invasion Mystery Capsule
- Discovery of Tyrannia Mystery Capsule
- Usurper Mystery Capsule
- Champions of Meridell Mystery Capsule
- Curse of Maraqua Mystery Capsule
- Tale of Woe Mystery Capsule
- Faerie’s Ruin Mystery Capsule

Keep in mind you'll have to buy these capsules! Any capsules you'll get gifted will not count towards getting this bonus item.

You will also earn a second bonus when you get at least one of the limited edition bonus items in each of the 7 different capsules by opening the mystery capsules in the History Capsule Adventure. Of course, this will not always happen on first try, so you might need to open several Mystery Capsules of one kind before you will get one of the limited edition bonus items.

You will not get this second bonus item when you just open the Mystery Capsules, but do not get at least one limited edition bonus item from each of the 7 capsules in the History Capsule Adventure. You also won't get this bonus item if someone gifts you one or more of the limited edition bonus items.
To see which Mystery Capsules or limited edition bonus items you still need to get to apply for the bonus, you can track your progress here.

If you're planning on getting the second bonus, (the big one at the end of the event) keep in mind that all Mystery Capsules are paid with Neocash, for which you'll have to spend real money. The only way to qualify for this bonus is by getting at least one limited edition bonus item from each of the Mystery Capsules in the event through opening the Mystery Capsules. Since this is random, it's not guaranteed a Mystery Capsule will give out a limited edition bonus item. Therefore it is very possible that you'll have to buy many Mystery Capsules before you'll open one that will give out one of the limited edition bonus items. In this way, the event can become rather expensive!

Earlier events
The Mystery Capsule adventure concept of this event has been used for several NC Mall events before. The event is a spin-off of the Great Mystery Capsule Adventure event, that was hosted in the NC Mall during the Fall of 2009 and the Great Mystery Capsule Adventure Continues event, which was hosted a year later during Fall 2010.

Also similar was last year's Case of the Mini Mystery Capsules and the Quest for Knowledge Mystery Capsule adventure that was hosted in the NC mall during spring 2010.
