    2) Secret Laboratory Map
    ==============================================================================
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What is the Secret Laboratory?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Secret Laboratory is an even you can visit once a day, just like Tombola
    or the Fruit Machine. You must first gather all the Lab Maps however. After
    that, you can use it every single day!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What can it do?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Lab Ray can do many things. All of it will alter one pet (which you can
    choose). There are listed below in alphabetical order:
    
    Different Colour
    Different Colour and Species
    Different Gender
    Different Species
    Less Defence
    Less Hit Points
    Less Level
    Less Movement
    Less Strength
    More Defence
    More HP
    More Level
    More Movement
    More Strength
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What are the chances of the effects?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    These stats are taken from IDB. It's based on how likely something will happen
    to your pet:
    
    More Hit Points........................ 13.4%
    Colour Change,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 13.0%
    More Strength.......................... 11.6%
    Less Level,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 10.3%
    More Movement.......................... 9.7%
    Different Species & Colour Change,,,,,, 9.3%
    More Defence........................... 6.4%
    Different Gender,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 6.3%
    More Level............................. 5.5%
    Less Movement,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 4.1%
    Less Strength.......................... 4.1%
    Different Species,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 3.0%
    Less Defence........................... 2.3%
    Less Hit Points,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 1.0%
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    How do you get it and for how much?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You can get the lab ray by buying all the pieces to it. People sell them
    on the trading post in full sets for about 230,000 - 260,000 NP. You can
    usually buy them individually on the Shop Wizard for less. Each piece goes by
    the same name "Piece of a Laboratory Map" and you have to look at the picture
    to determine if it's a double or not. The pieces range from a price of 22,000
    to 32,000 NP. After buying the pieces, go to the Treasure Map game:
    
    http://www.neopets.com/games/treasure.phtml?type=lab
    
    after you do that, you can have your first zap! Remember the consequences
    though! Everyday after that, you can do what you just did to get to the
    lab ray, or you can just go directly to this link:
    
    http://www.neopets.com/lab2.phtml
    
    If you would like to train your pet as fast as you can and don't care about
    it's appearance that much, the lab ray is highly recommended!

    3) Other Treasure Maps
    ==============================================================================
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What are the other treasure maps?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The non-laboratory treasure maps are different since they're one time use.
    They also do not give you access to something, they give you a prize instead.
    The other treasure maps are Original, Space, Spooky, and Underwater.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What can they do?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    As said in the previous paragraph, they can get you prizes. Each map has a
    different kind of prize. All of them also give you NP, including the Lab
    Map.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What are the possible prizes?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    For the examples, G = GameFAQs Username, and N = Neopets Username
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    a) Original
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The original map gives you 5 items and 9,000 - 12,000 NP. There is always one
    item with a rarity of 97 and usually 2 or 3 trading cards. Some very good
    rarity 97 items include the Dark Battle Duck and Krawk Swashbuckler.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    b) Space
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The space map gives you 4 items and grants each of your pets a level. It also
    gives you anywhere from 3,000 - 12,000 NP. The space map is now retired.
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    c) Spooky
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The spooky map gives you 9 spooky foods and 9,000 - 15,000 NP. It's still
    a relatively cheap treasure map. There are many unbuyable spooky foods.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    d) Underwater
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The underwater map gives you 9 aquatic foods and 8,000 - 12,000 NP. Since
    Maraqua was destroyed, you'd think these maps would be retired, but they 
    aren't.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    How do you get them and for how much? Are they worth it?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Each of the treasure maps can be bought like the Lab Ray, seperately on the
    Shop Wizard or as a pack at the Trading Post. They can also be found randomly
    on the site, but don't count on it. Each of the maps however, are different
    prices. Here are the prices you'll be paying for the full maps:
    
    -Nickname-   -Name of Individual Pieces-   -Altogether Price-     -Worth it?-
    Original     Piece of a Treasure Map       100,000 - 120,000 NP   Sometimes
    Space        Space Map                     210,000 - 230,000 NP   No
    Spooky       Spooky Treasure Map           45,000 - 60,000 NP     Sometimes
    Underwater   Underwater Map Piece          280,000 - 300,000 NP   No
    
    Additional Notes: Original and Spooky sometimes give you a good item, but
    sometimes they don't. All maps are done at a gamble. The Space Map and
    Underwater Maps are now way to expensive for you to pull a profit. Also, the
    Space Map is now a retired item so it's price will continually rise, if you
    want, you could buy one or two of them to keep in  your SDB for a while. They
    used to be 3,000 - 9,000 a piece.
