War for the Obelisk


The Awakened

The sixth video that appeared was about the Awakened. The Awakened are a rather creepy group, who's members all seem to be undeath: zombies, ghosts and mummies. They haven't been invited to the party to claim the Obelisk, so they'll just invite themselves! Afterall, this Obelisk must be filled with candy, and the Awakened are dying for some fun! Sure things is, they didn't bring their brains with them, for what fun would that be?

Below is the transcript of the Awakened video:

It looks like you're all having a party and you didn't invite us. That wasn't very nice of you.

So we're sending out invitations of our own. Party frocks and noisemakers required. Afterall, what good is a party, without the Awakened?

This is going to be so much fun. We heard there's cake inside the obelisk.

All of our friends have been bored to death lately. They're just dying to attend. They're coming from all over to liven things up.

We'd tell them to bring their own brains...but what fun would that be?

Here are some screenshots from the video:

The Awakened are invading Tyrannia!

The Awakened, and their leaders, are all ready for the party! (brains not required)

Neopedia Article
There is a neopedia article about The Awakened. You can read it at The Awakened Neopedia Article or just scroll down and read it below.

Neopedia : The Awakened

The Awakened Known Members: Lanie and Lillie, Echo, Halima the Enraged, Olabet Shuffletoes, "Brains" Mortigan, Eliv Thade, the Hairy Tongue Beast
Honourary members: Hubrid Nox
Suspected Involvement: War of the Obelisk

The Awakened aren't so much a secret society as a society the rest of Neopia would prefer not to know about. An aimless horde of monsters and undead, the Awakened have united under the adoring gaze of two special little girls. Just what direction these girls intend to aim their brain-loving friends is a subject of much concern...

Brainnss... braaaiiiiinnnsss...

Olabet was hanging out in his grave, dreaming of his favourite treat, when he heard a commotion above. The zombie Nimmo clambered up to find two little girls wandering around the graveyard and leaving what looked like flowers. Ugh, he hated pretty things. But he waited for them to come around to his grave anyway. Maybe he'd give them a good scare and chase them off. Olabet hastily reburied himself in the loose dirt.

The girls came over, singing, and dropped something by his tombstone. Olabet was about to jump out and groan at them when he paused. That smelled like... candy floss? His nose didn't work great anymore, but he had always loved candy floss. He hadn't had any in years.

Curious, Olabet burst out half-heartedly and saw pink candy floss, neatly wrapped and now covered in grave dirt. He seized it and devoured the whole thing, delighted, before he realised they were watching him. Two little girls, identically dressed with bows in their hair and huge eyes.

Silently, one of them held out a second stick of fluffy sugar. This one, even Olabet could tell, was brain-flavoured.

The Awakened rise up

Halima lived in Qasala, where the mummy scared tourists -- or she would if any came by her crypt. Mostly the nights were empty and boring... except for when her friend, a ghostly Hissi knight, visited from far off Meridell. Tonight was once such night.

Echo drifted into her crypt silently, but Halima noticed anyway by the sudden chill. It never bothered her. "Hello," she grumbled. "Nothing happened since your last visit. I'm so bored."

"It is our fate," Echo agreed woefully.

"Do you remember food? I had a craving for Evil Baklava yesterday." Halima clomped upstairs into the abandoned ruin she haunted. Moonlight shone in from the windows and holes in the roof.

"I remember Evil Baklava..." Echo said slowly, drifting after her. Her long hair fluttered in a non-existent breeze. "Someone sent it to my king as a gift, and he was poisoned by it. I failed to defend him. I failed..." Her voice trailed off in despair.

"If only there was something fun to do. Something new." Halima picked at a loose bandage. Even complaining bored her now.

"There was something," Echo said, frowning. Struggling to remember made her appear more solid. "I got a party invitation."

"A party?" Halima perked up. "Will there be cake?"

"And rampaging." Echo nodded. "Lanie and Lillie invited us. You remember them?"

A big grin spread across the mummy's gruesome face. "We should go," Halima said firmly. "It'll be fun."

Faction Leader Sayings
When you are at the obelisk, Lanie and Lillie will have a random message. Text on the left is one twin, and text on the right is the other twin responding.

Did you remember to feed the Warf?
Of course. Always feed your Petpets before inciting mass hysteria.
Someone told us there was a war and we should go somewhere safe.
We ate him for breakfast. Yum.
Of course we want the obelisk.
We can finally invite all of our friends to join us,

instead of just a few.
Please see if that person is all right.
If not, please check their pockets.

We think they had toffees.
Brains? Braaaaaaaaaains...
Stop that. You sound silly.

You're just jealous of my delightfully vacant stare.
The more they struggle against us,
the more we find it amusing.

Like bugs caught in a web.
This war is entirely too civilised.
Someone should run around with their trousers inside out.

Yes. Fun times.
We expect the obelisk tastes like rainbows and cherry candy.
With an aftertaste of brains.
It's a nice day for a party. The sky is bleak and grey.
The air smells of decay and raspberry candy floss.
Have we appeared in Mayor Thumburt's mirror yet today?
Yes, while he was brushing his beak. He squeaked in terror.
Everyone accuses us of doing away with other Neopets.
Just because they're never heard from again...

It's not nice to assume.
It's not nice to fight someone unless you can win.
Then you can share the joy of being undead with them.
