Deserted Tomb of Geraptiku
What is the Deserted Tomb of Geraptiku?
The Deserted Tomb of Geraptiku is a daily that you can visit in an attempt to get a prize. Most days, you won't find anything, but every once in a while treasures will await you!
Note: Since this is a site feature that gives out neopoint rewards and prizes, you may not visit the tomb on your side accounts. For more information look at our Side accounts guide.
Entering the Tomb
You can enter the tomb for free, all you need to do is click to open the stone door.
But others tell of a massive treasure left under the protection of the tomb's many traps. If you can get past these traps, Neopoints by the ton and artifacts like you've never seen are said to be scattered throughout the tomb. So far though, those who have entered to seek such a treasure have yet to return.
What about you? You've been standing at the door of this tomb for a while now. Are you brave enough to open it? Go on. It's just a door, right? There may be riches beyond your wildest dreams waiting for you inside... if risking your life is worth finding out.
Read on to see what happens if you choose to open the door. Treasure awaits...
It finally comes to a stop about halfway up. Figures. It is a very, very old door after all.
You gaze into the darkness beyond the opening and can barely make out a path leading inside. It quickly disappears, giving you no clue as to what may be in store for you if you enter. Without you realizing, your knees begin to shake and your hands begin to tremble. Riches may be waiting for you just beyond this door, but you have a very, very bad feeling about this place.
More often than not, you will not find the treasure. Instead, you will either (barely) manage to escape unharmed, or your active pet will take a hit for you. Below are the possible outcomes.
You happen upon a flight of stairs that leads down into the darkness. It seems to go on forever, but you finally reach the very bottom and enter the dimly lit room you find there.
You yell out in disappointment. This room is the treasure chamber you've been looking for but you discover that someone has gotten to the treasure before you. You could devote the rest of your life to finding this person and writing them a stern letter, but you have to get out of here first.
*RAWR* ME HUNGRY!
That's definitely no treasure. A giant monster leaps out from the darkness and begins chasing you, all the while thinking about the best way to cook you for dinner. You should probably continue running.
In the last scenario, your active pet will lose half of its current hitpoints.
And, while you were thinking that and not paying attention, you set off another one. You watch as the arrows fly right at you, but luckily Boathook was paying attention and pushes you out of the way just in time.
But while you're safe, Boathook suffers a bit of damage and loses some HP.
There are two different scenarios that award prizes. In the first scenario, you are awarded a minor prize.
What in the world was that? You look down to discover you'd planted yourself right on top of a Petpet. Poor thing. You wonder how it got here.
Wait a tick! What's that under the Petpet? You shoo the little critter away and open the small box that almost escaped your notice.
It's no massive treasure, but it's better than nothing. With all you've been through, you decide to quit while you're ahead and quickly make for an exit.
The possible prizes are listed below. Did you get an item not listed here ? Please let us know.
* The Earth Stone Gem wasn't always a Geraptiku-Only prize. They used to be sold at the Magic Shop but are now retired.
The treasure of the Lost City of Geraptiku prize
The second scenario that wins you a prize is when you find the treasure. The treasure will award one of the minor prizes as well, in addition to either a codestone, fading bottled faerie, or tropical fruit. You also walk away with a few thousand neopoints (usually under 2,500 nps).
Finally, after deciphering all the secrets of the tomb, you're led to the treasure chamber.
You've found it. You've found the treasure of the Lost City of Geraptiku. People you've met once will now be writing to you asking to borrow Neopoints. It's every Neopian's dream.
You search through the treasure and take back what you can carry.
In addition to the other prizes, if you are lucky, you may find an avatar!
