A pirate’s life for me

You’ve got to work your way up in this world. One day, you’re a lowly deck hand, sailing on a ratty old sloop and taking orders from a nasty old sea-captain. But if you’ve got the right stuff — if you can defeat pirates and sea monsters, and outwit crooked traders to make your fortune — you just might take become a nasty old sea-captain yourself. Only then can you take the reins of a mighty ship… like some of the ones below!

Of course, there are even bigger and better ships out there, if you can find them.

Poptropica’s Skullduggery Island will be available to everyone this Thursday!

Somebody has hidden a hypnotic new item somewhere in the world of Poptropica! It’s totally free — you just have to find it. Here’s a screenshot of where the item is hiding:

Look familiar? Just click on that window pane to see what you find!

(Okay, here’s a hint: It’s in Early Poptropica!)

Graduation Day & Soccer Fever!

We’ve got two great items in our store this week!


It’s graduation season and we have a free cap and gown for all of you! Also celebrate the World Cup with a cool color changing soccer outfit!

Creepy But Cool

Today when I visited the common room on 24 Carrot Island some of us saw this girl wearing a spooky yet stylish outfit. I wonder where she got it.
 
It’s summertime, so grab your sunscreen, surfboards, and hit the beach!

These outfits are now available in the store, so choose your Mythology Surfer style: Zeus, Hades, or Poseidon.

Sorry I am behind on posting, so here:

Prom-enade!

It’s time to strut your stuff in these new “Prom” themed outfits! Of course, I prefer to wear my shark suit for these fancy occasions.

It’s a cold day in Hades’ Kingdom

Have you ever told a friend to “Stay Cool” when you leave school for the summer? Winter Blast gum will help you keep your summer promises. You can create your own summer snow blizzard. No one will be as cool as you.

For those of you that thought that we wouldn’t get a new pop gum flavor until the Underworld freezes over, take a look in the store. This new frosty flavor will cool off those tongues that have been blowing lots of fire bubbles.

Sneak Peek of a Rusty Robot

I received special instruction to reveal to you this mysterious image. Be wise. With this small piece of information you could save the future of Poptropica. Your mission, for now, is to wait patiently until further notice.

 
 
What’s this? It seems there’s another new Poptropica island in the works!
 
 

And you thought green vegetables were scary…

Here’s a sneak peek at some creepy beasts that might be appearing on a future Poptropica island. Which one do you think is scarier? Vote in our poll on the sidebar!

Skullduggery Island launch dates announced!

Secret’s out: Skullduggery Island will open to the public on June 17. Members can cast their sails beginning May 20!

I’d be more excited if I didn’t expect everyone to turn their cannons on me the first chance they get…


Take it from the top

We thought we’d give you a new perspective on Skullduggery Island:

How’s that for a bird’s-eye view?

 
For our Facebook friends, a look at a very early sketch for Skullduggery Island. Wait until you see the final version!
Notice the words speed near the ship. I will be “officially” back in a week.

This is only what I THINK the island will be like, so no real spoilers. I’ll also be doing this from now on. This is based on of the information I have received.

Part I: Beginning

1. You will have to do a mini quest for either a retired pirate captain or an active one. Once you beat his quest, you get to have one of his/her ships.

2. You will have to build a crew. You will probably have to persuade NPCs (Non-Players Characters) to join your crew by doing certain mini quests for them. It will actually be unlikely for the ability to recruit players in multi, for they would want you to be on their crew too. You could find pirate crew NPCs at Taverns or Ports.

Part II: Setting sail

1. Enemy ships, such as British ships, Colonial ships ( As shown in first sneak peek photo), Spanish, Pirate, French, etc will be spawned at random locations. Defeat them to collect your booty (No, I mean “treasure”)

2. You could be able to go to other mini islands to find buried treasure. You could buy shipments for trade at shops (Such as Apple Cider (Substitute for Rum), seeds (Depicted), and other various objects). You could also buy upgrades for your ship (Port) or swords and pistols (shops)

Part III: Main Quest

Once you’ve done that for a while, you must defeat a king pirate to be ruler of the seas! The boss will most likely be either Edward Teach (Blackbeard), Jolly Roger, or maybe even Davy Jones! When you take the treasure from them, you will be rewarded with a medallion and 100 credits!

Part IV: Features we hope to see

– A kraken battle, or any other various sea monster

– The ability to go multiplayer and join someone else crew, they can board their captain’s ship.

– The ability to have more than one ship.

Tkowch2:

– The ability to buy upgrades with credits.

– The hope that there will be extra mini quests to earn credits

– The hope that it will only come out one or two weeks early for members

Here are two pirate costumes: http://www.poptropica.com/avatarstudio/avatar.html?a=bdGl4aW5nVkd0dmQyTm9UUT09 and

Remember, this is only a prediction, no real stuff! I will also work on the Walk-Throughs more while Tkowch2 is gone.


Ahhhh….Spring is in the Air

New this week in the Poptropica store: a “Flower Power” costume with a special ability. You can make Poptropica bloom!

To celebrate the coming of spring we have updated the Flower Power card in the store to include a lovely new outfit to help you look like a daisy as you spread love, joy and blooming flowers throughout

Poptropica.

Note: if you already bought the original “Flower Power” card, you don’t need to get the new one! Your existing card is automatically updated in your inventory to include the costume.
