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.


Looks like this Skullduggery Island ship is almost ready for its christening! Wonder what it’s called…

I think this is one of the ships you have to fight! Poptropica has a new wallpaper. Visit their site to get it.


Tkowch has..

ALOT of homework.

So you know what this meins..

PARTY TIME!
