We have just released King Baspinar's Loyalty Programme in Baspinar's Castle! This new feature rewards members for their loyalty, by giving them a new prize for every month that they have been playing! You get your first prize after 5 days of being on the site. Rememeber that it is one account per person, and we are heavily logging all activity for this feature, so cheaters will be automatically banned from the site when caught. You can go inside the castle now to see the full list of rewards!
We have a brand new Flash Game for you to play. Newth Snowboarding has been added to the Strategy category of the games section. Now that the site is back to normal, for aslong as we have the support of Account Upgraders, we will be releasing a new game every week!
We have also fixed Pearl Skipping flash game so that it sends score properly!
Now that Account Upgrades are back and working as they should be, we have decided it was time to fix the old Marasite & Journal upgrade items which are no longer avaliable. These items are now limited edition items on sale at the Account Upgrades page until further notice. If and when we do re-release the Marasite & Journal upgrades, these items will not be part of it anymore, so this may be your last chance to get them.
The May Account Upgrades are currently being worked on and should be released next week, along with the new mission. This means that you only have a few more days to get the September Account Upgrade before it retires, and the November upgrade changes from £8 to £10.
This is how the Yuni will look as a mutant, prison or as a zombie!
We have finished our work on the Account Upgrades system and if you haven't already noticed, there has been a lot of changes. We have changed from US dollars to UK Pounds because we are a UK website and its easier and cheaper for us to us UK Pounds. We have also changed to Google Checkout! You can make an account there in 2 quick and very easy stages which will take only a few minutes and then buying Account Upgrades will be much easier than it was with Paypal.
We have currently disabled Paypal payments for improvements. However, when Paypal returns, you will not get the 20% extra credit you receive with Google Checkout. Paypal is also a lot slower to process than Google, so we hope you will choose Google Checkout instead, because it is much much better in our opinion!
Google Checkout Promotion!
With every Google Checkout payment you make, you will receive 20% extra credit FREE until Sep 07!
Also, get a free Billy minipet with your first ever purchase with Google Checkout!
We have been going through major maintenance and upgrades to the site for nearly 8 months now and today we have finally finished. We would like to say a huge thank you to all of you that have continued to stayed with us through all of the lag, downtime and random server errors and glitches and to all of the account upgraders that have helped us to pay for it all! We are hoping that by the end of this month, every known glitch on our list is fixed, including Marasites, and we will also be contiuning to revamp, reorganise and improve all of the major sections of the site. Then in June, we will be back to normal with tons of great new updates, including new flash games, pets, worlds, items and lots of other things we are going to keep secret!
Here is another sneak preview of the new Mission that will be released soon! The Voodoo Costume will be the costume avaliable, and here are 3 of the freakiest looking pets on the site wearing the costume! Definately from Eleka's Castle...
The Fasoro has finally been revamped. We will be revamping a few more pets soon, but the Fasoro was one of the only pets that hasn't changed since we first opened and is becoming more and more difficult to do new and interesting costumes for. We hope you like the change, and if not, theres 40 other pets to choose from!

We have completed all of our maintenance to the Forums and to Galleries. You may of noticed lots of new features on both of them, such as quick links on forums, online status on forums and galleries and the new divide feature on galleries, which allows you to seperate your items aswell as ordering them, so that certain items can move onto the next row!
We are pleased to announce the return of MaraJournals! The new Blogs have been released in a basic version on your profiles. The blogs link is at the top of every page near the online count and you can post new diary entries on your profile to let the rest of Marada know your latest news! Found a new avatar? Acheieved a new goal? Won a competition offline? Selling something new? Post a blog entry! Soon your Marapals will also be able to comment on them and many more features will be released over the next few weeks. We hope you like this new feature. Many of you have been gaining more entry space with your account upgrade purchases for over a year now, so you can finally use them!
If you haven't already noticed, Profiles have been changed to make room for the new Blogs. We hope you like the changes, they are a lot more organised now. You will soon be able to edit the colour scheme with your unlocked fonts in your glowing egg nest!
Account Upgrades are still down for maintenance. We are going through a major upgrade with their system, switching both payments methods and the currency we process payments in. We will no longer have USD$ as the main currency, but will switch to GBP??. Those in the US will still be able to purchase Account Upgrades, just like how people in the rest of the world has bought them in their currency, because Google Checkout will charge you in your own currency. It will be no different for you, but it will save us a whole week at the end of the year when we have to work out the taxes!

We have completed a lot of upgrades to sections of the site today. Usershops are finished now and so are Trades. We hope you like the changes, they are a lot faster and work without any problems. Trades search has also been improved.

You probably already noticed, but we have a new Spring Layout. Although the war is still on, we wanted to release the new layout early, as the site is finally back to normal. We have completed all of the major maintenance around the site now and you should notice that the site is running much better because of it. We will still have the ocasional upgrades in certain areas of the site but it won't be longer than a couple of hours. You may of also noticed that we have added a few new links to the layout. We are working all week to improve the navigation around the site, introducing the new Currency and Pets sections, which will soon be information and quicklinks to places like the Pet Exchange, the Pound, Create a Pet, the Bank & ATM, etc. Thanks for your patience all of this month while we took our major upgrades to the site. We are back to normal now and stay tuned for some great new updates to the site in May.
A little later than planned, the April Account Upgrade has been released. We have had the Dark theme before, so this time it has a Light theme! Here are some of the items you can get from supporting the site this month:

The Easter Egg Hunt will be until Sunday, when noone else will be able to start it. After Sunday, those who have already started the hunt will have another week to complete it. Then all items and avatars from the hunt will be retired.
Our annual Easter Egg Hunt has just started! Although two weeks later than usual this year, the war and site maintenance delayed it. Both the war and the maintenance will be finished by the end of the month. This year's Easter Egg Hunt has 40 levels for you to complete. There are 40 new easter eggs hidden around the site and you have to follow the clues to find them. These will be hidden for atleast a week, maybe longer if we have to, so everyone should be able to take part. There is an Easter Egg Hunt Forum where you can all work together to solve each clue.
There is one IMPORTANT RULE - you cannot list answers or give out answers on the Forums or Club Boards, ONLY via Maramail. Anyone caught giving answers on the Forums or Club Boards, or linking to websites with the answers listed on the Forums or Club Boards will be banned from taking part, will have their prizes taken away from them and will be fined up to 100,000MP.
There are some great prizes to be won from this event. You will win all 40 Easter Eggs if you complete the whole event, MP and these items below, which will all retire after this event.
Can you also find this Easter 07 avatar that we have hidden? It'll retire at the end of the event!
Clue : 'This Murfin can run, catch him if you can!'

The second attack is on! Head over to the Battle Arena now to fight either a Kevadra or a Wizadrip.

Because of the ongoing War, it is too unsafe for Easter Eggs to be hidden around Marada - the Easter Bunny was even kidnapped! The war should be finished by next weekend, so we can start the Easter Egg Hunt then.
We are sorry to announce that we have a small technical hitch with this years easter hunt :/
The Easter Bunny appears to have been kidnapped by newths. His egg basket was deserted this morning, there was only a note saying:
We hAvE THE BUnNy. GiVe uS 10,000 SALmoN fLaVOuReD eGGs oR hE gEtS iT
The MBI (Maradan Bureau of Investigation) are currently hard at work trying to trace the kidnappers and rescue the bunny. The Easter hunt WILL happen once we get him back, there just might be a slight delay.

Queen Eleka and King Baspinars first child has been born! Introducing... Princess Laimay III
But as its not April Fools Day anymore, we can actually tell you that this is the 40th Marapet and is non-limited edition, so you can go and create one now! This is actually a Crindol. The war is still on and there will be more war related news soon!
We bring good news today, on a rather unexpected outcome to a secret peace conference that has being occuring to discuss the war. During their attendance at the conference, it is rumoured that King Baspinar XIII and Queen Eleka had been conducting private talks on the future of Maradas ecology in respect to the large number of Muskits and Swondors that have been killed as a result of the war.
It was announced today that during these talks the two rivals fell in love and were married in a secret ceremony several days ago! We also bring you the happy news that Queen Eleka is already expecting their heir to the throne. The happy couple have revealed that they intend to name their first-born Princess Laimay III (we just hope that it turns out to be a girl!)
The Laimay will be our 40th species of Marapet, and will be the rarest of all the limited edition pets. We are not quite sure when it will arrive, as Eleka has declined to comment on the due date.
Obviously, the ongoing war is now cancelled, but there will still be plenty of changes happening to the site as Elekas castle is to be immadiately vacated, and work is commencing on Baspinars Castle to "bring it out of the dark ages and make it fit to live in" as Eleka tactfully puts it. War points will soon also be spendable in a new nursery shop that is opening soon.

The War is on! Queen Eleka foolishly thought she could win just by shutting her shops to the light side, but as that didnt work, shes sent 100,000 Swondors to attack the light side! The King has responded, sending 100,000 of his Muskit troops to fight the dark side! You can go to the Battle Arena now to fight for your side. You will gain War Points for each battle, which is a random amount between 1 and the difficulty of the opponent. There will be lots more opponents in the war, with more on the way this week.
The Restocking stage of the war is now over.
There are lots more items in the War Redemption Shop and even more items will be added over the next two weeks - including some more real prizes! Remember there is limited numbers of each one, and there is no guarentee it will restock again!
