Will there be any trigger warnings for sensitive content?

We understand that certain themes may be triggering for some individuals, and never want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. For this reason, we want to preemptively highlight that this plot will involve some potential triggering topics. Instead of shying away from them, we have chosen to let our own experiences with these themes steer us in incorporating what we feel are meaningful and important topics into this plot and the larger Neopian world. For your awareness and personal curation, we’d like to inform you that some of the themes The Void Within will explore include: mental health, abandonment, identity, community, family, and exclusion/inclusion.

Although some of these topics can be difficult to address, our team feels it is crucial that our stories and characters come from real places and real people. This is how truly powerful stories latch onto each of us. Why they linger with us. How they connect us. We’ve done our utmost to approach these themes thoughtfully and responsibly through a Neopian lens while focusing on telling a captivating tale that everyone can relate to in some way. This story is born of our shared values and experiences, and it relentlessly chases after our longstanding goal of ensuring that Neopia is a place where everyone feels seen and represented.

As we delve deeper into the void throughout the course of this plot, there may be some dark corners waiting around the winding path to come. Please remember that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, and keep in mind Neopia is a place of passion and hope. This is a digital world built on Neofriends and Guilds that spawned a sometimes chaotic yet always beautiful sanctuary of both escape and belonging for a vast community. We hope you will stick around with us to the very end of our tale, as we will need every person who has ever called this world home to band together if we are to truly restore Neopia to its former colourful glory!
