Ghost Story Island Guide

Walkthrough and pictures by Brave Tomato

Go to Ghost Story Island if you haven’t already. Pick up the salt from the guy carrying it. This may sound odd right now, but later, it’ll be understandable why. Go to the newspaper place and talk to the lady running it. She’ll say that she would pay $50 for any evidence you find of ghosts.

Now, exit the newspaper place and go to the left. You’re in the cemetery gates area. When you walk further, your character will hear a sound that you won’t. Then the gates will open… revealing a tour guide. Thank goodness. He just about to tour you around “haunted” places, when the ma-magi-magistrate busts the tour guide. Mr. Tour Guide will run off and his pamphlet will conveniently land into your hands.

The magistrate will tell you to reside for the night… but you really don’t have anywhere. For now, go to the left and talk to this guy with a weird frown, bow tie, and suitcase. He’s looking for the grave of his uncle, but can’t find it. Go to the right and ask the lady to go into the archives. She’ll allow you to go in without worry.  Go over to where you see this:


Click on “Cementary Plots”. Turn a few pages until you see the name Silas Moon. I kinda laughed at some of the names. You’ll highlight Silas’ name. Go back to the cemetery. Talk to the nephew, and he will give you his key to the inn. Great, so you have a room to spend the night.


Go to the right until you see the inn. Enter. A woman who looks like Edna from The Incredibles will be relived that a room became available, and says something about “preparations”. Odd. Go into your room, 2B. Click on the bed.

During a fun 1st person POV cutscene, you try to sleep, but things keep moving on their own! You can’t sleep, you’re getting scared, and you should investigate.


(Wait… has our own character done this emote before? I know Mark Twain did, but has our own character?)

Go to the closet and click on it. The Edna look-a-like will fall out and run to her hubby. Augh! Tricked! That’s not funny guys. You threaten to let the magistrate know, and hubby refuses. Then, the Edna look-a-like will say that in order to find one of the ghosts, you should play her favorite song on the violin.

Go to the hallway and go over to where the piano is. Click on the violin next to it and you’ll receive the music as well at the violin itself. Exit and go to the roof of the inn. Click on use on the violin. Move the bow (violin bow, not archer bow!) back and forth to play the song. Don’t worry if your bow starts glowing, that’s normal. After playing the song, you’ll notice that something is going on. Go down and talk to that weird ghost hunter guy.


He’ll say he saw what’s going on in the window too. However, the magistrate will take him away. Again. After he and the magistrate has gone, pick up the binoculars by the tent. Go back to the roof of the inn and use them. You’ll see an elderly woman open the curtains temporarily and close them again. She wants you to come. Go over to the mansion and enter through the storm cellar.

You’ll see creepy dolls and a sheet covering a sewing dummy. Go to the right a little more. Attempt to climb the stairs but they fall apart. Jump up and push the small crate off of the larger one. Push them both until the bigger crate is just about near where the stairs resume. You’ll pass by a fireplace with a picture of a happy couple. Ah, Poptropican love. Go up the wide stairs and enter through the door. Go to the right until you see a telescope. Look around for a little bit.

As you go to exit, you’ll hear (literally hear) a woman’s voice asking “Are you looking for someone?” Don’t worry. Someone’s not in your room.  It’s just the game.

Of course, with the impeccable manners you have, the first thing you ask is if this woman’s a ghost. She says she’s not, but she’s here to take care of some unfinished business. And she’s going to help you with your ghost hunting journey. She tells you to see Jane, the baker from that Gingerbread house place and say that Fiona sent me. So Fiona is her name? Nice.

Exit the mansion and go to the bakery. Talk to Jane the baker and tell her that Fiona sent you. Ignore the other two wacky responses.


She says that you are so interested in finding the spirits. Then, she’ll press a button and open a secret area. It has ghost hunting equipment: a thermal sensor, a thermometer, an EMF detector, and a camera. If you want, you can see the wall of peeps who visited the place. You can see that one of them is a bit show-offish and puts his picture on a frame. One of them is even one of the Poptropican stand-ins in the sneak peeks! So that guy’s name is Abe.

…sheesh. How come all of the NPCs have normal names?! Oh well. Brave Tomato is fine. But still. On your way out, grab some hot cross buns from the table. Exit. Go to the left into the cemetery. Enter through the gates.

You’ll be in 1st person view again, but this time, it’s more annoying. Go forward. Click this arrow thing to change your direction.


Go forward. Go forward again. Turn to the right. Go forward. Turn to the left. Enter through the gates that are marked A. Go up and you’ll see a psycho-looking woman telling you to hide because some guy in a cloak is coming. One of the ghosts mentioned in the pamphlet leaves a rose in front of a grave.

The camera will be flashing in the bottom right corner. It’ll lead you to the menu. Click use on the camera. You’ll see a black and white screen. Aim for the hooded guy leaving a rose. It’ll automatically take the picture. The man will run off. You may look at the picture.


(Okay, that looks pretty cool!)

Exit the cemetery overall and go to the newspaper place. To get out, go to the area marked with an H on the map. Talk to the lady and use the photo. She’ll reward you with 50 bucks. Nice.

You should store this in the bank. Go there and go down to the bank vault. Click use on the money in front of the security guard. He’ll lead you into the bank vault. When you get in, the security guard’s dog will start digging at something.


The thermal detector will flash in the bottom right corner. Use that. Go underneath where the dog is digging, and you’ll see a strange figure hammering at something.


Okay… something is down there. Or someone. In the meantime, go outside and approach near the Hemlock Herald place. You’ll see a group of undercover ghost hunters carrying newspapers, including foil hat guy, the guy who sells souvenirs, the guy holding a camera, and the guy who carries salt. It turns out that your photo has made front page news.

The magistrate will walk over and says that it was probably just another hoax. He also yells to get back to their place of residence. Everyone else runs off but you, and the magistrate says that he’s got his eye on you.


Meanwhile, a boat docks near the shores of woman in the manor window. Go there. You’ll see the sailor, who’s looking for a room. Give him his room key and he’ll reward you with the ability to use his boat. Get on the boat and head to the left. There’s a lighthouse there. Dock.

As you enter the lighthouse, pick up the unlit torch. It’ll be helpful once you get inside. When you get inside, click use on the torch, stop by where another torch is to get light, and get on the stairs. Jump two times upwards then duck, because there are winds that can both knock you over and put the fire out. When you reach a new staircase, duck the first chance you get on there. Watch out for the gaps.


When you get up, you’ll talk about the temperature, and the thermometer flashes in the bottom left corner. Click use. You’ll place the thermometer. Go to the right a little and go up the ladder. Go through the shattered window and click on the light.

Go up-right diagonally until you see an Alcatraz-like prison. Jump off the lighthouse and get on the boat. Head towards that direction, but watch out for the rocks. Get into the prison.

That place is BIG. Click use on the EMF detector. Head towards the right and use the elevator. Go to floor H. The EMF detector will be in the orange area when you get there.

Go to the right until you see the warden’s office. Enter. You’ll have to click use on your EMF detector again. Or you can use the thermal sensor. Either way, you’ll notice that someone is on that rocking chair!


Okay, you’re right in front of a ghost right now. Don’t panic. Instead, use the hot cross buns. The spirit will walk over and eat one of them. He also says that I’m not Prisoner 24601 (that’s a reference to Les Miserables!).


(why is he purple?)

The spirit of the warden will give you a mugshot of the escaped prisoner. The mugshot shows which cell he is in. After an explanation by the Warden, you should be on your way to go there. Go to floor D and head towards the right until you see Cell 8. Go in… go over to the bed…

…and the Warden traps you there! Oh goody. He wants you as a living replacement for a dead prisoner. Push the bed out of the way and you’ll see a hole. Go through.

You can use the thermal scanner and you’ll see someone in the top right corner. It’s probably the deceased prisoner! Go along. Along the way, you’ll pick up sardines, a pickaxe, and a note. Talk to the prisoner. He’ll give you a backstory involving some guy named “Flatbottom” and another named “Valiant”. Exit the tunnel.

Now, you have to get out of there yourself. Use the pickaxe in the cell, and you’ll end up outside the cell. Yes! Get out of that horrible island!


(I’m outta here!)

Board the boat and head towards the regular land. You’ll notice that the thermometer has dropped! Get back in that boat and head back to the lighthouse. You have to use the torch, but there’s no wind bothering you know… especially that there is a floating torch around… O.o

Go up the stairs. When you get up there, you’ll see the spirit of the lighthouse keeper crying over something.



He’ll also say that the remains of the boat are north of the lighthouse. Exit the lighthouse and go on the boat. Travel north, and the lighthouse light will be showing a scene of horrible wreckage. Oh my goodness…


Examine the wreckage and you’ll find a locket. Go back to regular land. When you land, examine the locket.


Oh… oh my gosh. Fiona?! New love?! Wasn’t that woman who scared the bajeezles out of me named Fiona? Go into the manor and follow the same way you did before. This time, after you enter the door, go left and up. Fiona is by the bed.


Talk to her and you’ll give her both the locket and the note to the prisoner. She’ll freak out and say:



She says that the ring that this Henry guy gave her is at the bottom of the fountain. She cries and walks off. Get down and you’ll encounter a scrapbook. Open it.


You think and say the following:




Go to the fountain on Main Street. A bird is there guarding her nest. Use the sardines to drive her off. Go into the nest and click on the object shimmering in the nest. It’s the ring!

Okay, now go to the left and enter the cemetery. The directions you should take are right, forward, left, forward, forward, forward, right, and enter through gate B. Go to the engraver’s shop and click use on the ring in front of the engraver. He says the following:



You ask what his job was and he tells you to go to the archives and look up August 18, 1929. Exit the cemetery and go to the Hemlock Herald place. (By the way, if you click the owl in Cemetery lot B, he’ll jump and mistake the hoots for the sounds of the spirits. Uh…)

At the Hemlock Herald building, go to the archives and click on the microfilm.


Turn the cranks until it says 1929. Then click zoom. You’ll learn that Henry Flatbottom is the magistrate!


Lot A. Hmm… wasn’t that near where that cloaked figure was? That.. that was the magistrate?! Well… we’ll have to see!

Go to Lot A of the cemetery (A on the map). Go to the left until you see a fancy grave. Push open the lid… and out comes… a ladder?! Best idea to investigate.

Now, you’ll encounter ANOTHER labyrinth. However, it’s not as complicated. Just follow the pink rose petals.

If you did it right, you’ll encounter this:


Go up the ladder. It’s a secret passage from the tree stump! You’ll hear footsteps or something and hide. It’s that cloaked guy… and he… he…


…sneezes. You’ll come from your hiding place and confront this guy. You’ll follow him into the stump… and end up back in lot A. Chase him around until you see him where you first saw him, the covered grave he put the flower on.

Once you get there, you’ll take off his hood, shake the salt into his eyes… and it IS the magistrate. He tries and goes off-topic, asking you to leave. You go off-topic from HIS off-topicness and say that he’s responsible for the death of Valiant Lovejoy by sending the fake letter. Oooooo….

The magistrate says that he liked Fiona as well and had to betray his best friend to try to marry her. Yikes, Poptropica’s first love triangle. And also… he says something that you DIDN’T know.

Oh. My. Gosh.


He keeps sending the roses to try to plead forgiveness for the death, but it isn’t working for him. A gust of wind blows, blowing away the cobwebs, clearly showing Fiona’s name on the grave…

The spirit of Fiona comes out from behind a grave and says that she forgives him and thanks him for his confession. The rest of the spirits are there too. And… look who joined the party of 4 spirits and 2 mortals!

It’s Val-Val-Valiant!

Fiona approaches closer to Valiant and says that she thanks us for giving them the chance to finally rest in peace. They disappear, along with the other spirits. The magistrate will thank you for helping him find peace between the spirits and himself. For that… he gives you the island medallion and credits!

Congrats! You have finished Ghost Story Island!

Well, before I leave, I might as well make a donation for myself to Fiona.


RIP Fiona, Valiant, and all of the other spirits I met.

  1. Thank you to Brave Tomato for writing this excellent walkthrough for Ghost Story Island, and we hope it is helpful! :)

  2. Prickly Dolphin says:

    So yeah, this guide/walkthrough is also seen on Super Thunder’s Blog. I wish I was a member so I could complete this island. :sad: The demo version was fun to me. :grin: I think the island will come out for non-members in Janurary I think.

    Hijuyo: Yes, Brave Tomato originally published it there and told us we could put it on the PHB. This guide also links back to ST’s blog and credits the author. ;)

  3. I really wish i was a member so i could finish. And i wil be honest, when the old lady actually talked, i jumped. It really did freak me out.

    • I actually laughed then. The voice was so out of place. An American accent really sticks out in a ghost story set in England…

      • Actually, the setting of this story is New England, which is in America. :)

      • I had muted it the first time I solved the island. I made a new account and looked through the telescope. I came back to the phb cause nothing was happening. Then Are you looking for someone?!?!? I’m still shaking. Also, I thought she’d sound old and talk dryly. But she sounded like she was a young woman!

  4. MStorm/MBones, DaughterofPoseidon [I wish!] says:

    I got the dude and wife out of the closet, but after threating them, when I clicked on them it said chat/battle!! They won’t battle you, but they do respond when you chat!!!

  5. Prickely Pelican says:

    Great guide! Only thing, I wish it came out sooner cause I finished the island before the guide came out!

  6. Prickely Pelican says:

    The old lady made me jump to! It REALLY freaked me out!

    • wolfbrotheryeahh says:

      Oh, heck yes! Not a great idea to do this at night in an old church like I just did. :S

    • YoungHeart1235 says:

      I know right?My computer has these really strong stereos and my volume was on 100 so it was loud when it happened.

  7. Giant Sword says:

    I’m pretty sure how you found out that the thing you use to find the newspaper article is called a microfilm cause there is a box that says that.Sorry…I’m not trying to be rude if you think i am

  8. when is the ghost story island is released for everyone?

  9. yo, shaggy fish ghost story will come out 1-12-12 k

  10. I loved it! I still read it without member ship!

  11. Prickely Pelican says:

    Well, the whole version for non-members comes out on 1-12-12! And where do you live Calm Sinker? Cause where I live it’s still December 30, 2011!

  12. Prickely Pelican says:

    Oh and you’re up at 1:33 a.m.?

    • This blog is set at Hijuyo’s time zone. Thats why its a different time and day then yours.

      • Gess what!! I got member ship 5 hours ago!!! I read it agin! and I read it the second time!!!! I got stuck on it though…But then I knew i was doing it wrong!! I was supposed to go to hemlock first!! and be on the dock!!! Then go to the light house!!!!!!! p.s- THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! I LIKE YOU SO MUCH!!. I WONDER IF WE COULD HANGOUT!??!! AND THE REAST HELPED TOO!!!!

  13. Allie Ann says:


  14. anyone know when the train stops

  15. Golden Starfish says:

    When i got back to the mainland after going into the lighthouse for the first time, the thermometer never went off! I tried going back and walking through the prison and the lighthouse, but nothing works! HELP ME! What did i do wrong???

    • yummy pumpkin says:

      did u click use in the room at the lighthouse

    • ★Brave Tomato★ says:

      Have you checked out the prison yet? Go back into the lighthouse and go up. Go up the split ladder and enter through the top. Point the light around until you see a prison on an island. Get down and go there. Details on what to do in the prison is in the walkthrough. After you return to main land from the prison, the thermometer will go off.

    • The exact same thing happend to me and and i did everything the walkthrough said! have you figured it out?

    • That happened to me too! It was so weird. I did everything that the guide told me to do but it still wouldn’t work. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME!!!!!

  16. Golden Starfish says:

    Please let me know–i made sure that i have all of the items and did everything that was supposed to come before that…do you have any ideas?

  17. Obiwan2324 says:

    x] Anyways, finished it! thanks for teh guide!

  19. i need help

  20. cfncvfbnvfbhb chc h says:

    what about the money

  21. how do you leave the flowers on Fiona’s grave after you get the medal?

    • The only way to do this is to buy the flower power card from the store, equip it, and then press space when you’re in front of Fiona’s grave. It’s completely optional, though.

  22. choclatee says:

    omg i am confused how do ypu get in cell 8 in floor d i am stuckk here anyonee helpp please !!! and it wont click on the book even my sister tryed but she doesntg get it pleasee helppp!!!!

    • push the bed (the big lump to the right) aside, and there should be a hole. crawl through the hole. if you need to get in the cell itself, go to the elevator and go to floor D. then walk to the right until you see cell 8. hope this helps!

    • Go through the elevator :)

  23. wow i actually did it!!! :)

  24. sleepy beetle says:

    What hot crossbuns??Where can i find them?!?!?

    • yummy pumpkin says:

      in the bakery

      • yummy pumpkin says:

        when you go to the abandoned house the “woman in the window” is this lady named Fiona and she will send you to Jane the baker. Jane will give you this cool ghost hunting gadgets and then say you can have some hot cross buns too. youll need them later in the game.

  25. Thx this guide really helped

  26. theres this glitch that if you show the ring to the guy again you,ll earn another meadallon

  27. yummy pumpkin says:

    what does it mean when it says your comment is “awaiting moderation”? cause mine said that am i in trouble???

    • cool onion says:

      I don’t know what it means,but I know you aren’t in trouble ’cause mine said that to, but I think you must have figured that out by now…

      • ★Brave Tomato★ says:

        When a comment is in moderation, the authors check to see if a comment is spam or not. If it isn’t spam, it’s approved and placed on the website to the public.

  28. Tia-Taco :) says:

  29. How’d you get that hair? I love it! 8D

  30. I keep getting logged out when i enter certain areas of the island why? this happens in other islands as well. i just want to play.

  31. Brave Tomato u rock! this is a out there help blog. 5 star totally.

  32. cool onion says:

    Thanks! I thought I didn’t use the salt… anyway, what happens to the spirit in the bank ? :) ;) :D ;D

  33. Wild Kid aka Suri Spellriver aka Magyk says:

    “Board the boat and head towards the regular land.”
    What do you mean by “regular land”?

  34. she means hemlock harbor, Wild Kid aka Suri Spellriver aka Magyk

  35. Wild Kid aka Suri Spellriver aka Magyk says:

    It wont let him say, “Be gone, Mortal!”
    Is there something wrong with my computer? I’ve tried to use the salt dozens of times, but it wont let me.

  36. fearless owl says:

    i love th walk thourgh! But who was the woman in the window if its not fiona???????

  37. Great guide, BT!

  38. who was the other girl that said she was Fonia?


  40. LOL The voice freaked me out!

  41. Erickaster says:

    Well, lesson learned: Don’t EVER play this game at night.

  42. Erickaster says:

    What do you mean, “Board the boat and head towards regular land?” The lighthouse, or the main island? After we escape the prison…

  43. Erickaster says:

    Wait then who was the person in the window if Fiona is dead?

  44. Moody Ice says:

    I finished this island, but I only got half the credits. Why did they half it up?

    • Poptropica recently made a change that instead of earning 100 credits after every island, it would be 50. This is normal. They probably lessened it because there were so many islands, which in turn would give so many credits.

    • What you should do is give the man the ring do double up your credits and get the original amount you should’ve gotten. Let me know if this works! :)

  45. bronze eagle says:

    i cant find the gates marked A please help me

  46. bronze eagle says:

    i dont get how to get to the engraver’s shop

  47. Shaky Grape says:

    Oh, about the nervous sweaty emote, your character has done that before. In Wild West island (during the bubblegum mini game) and Game Show island (during a Scaredy Pants game).

  48. Savvyrocks! :D says:

    LOL!! If you click on the people that run the hotel after they attempt to scare you, the chat battle bubbles will pop up but when you click chat or battle and click on something, nothing will happen! :D

  49. i had a tree that makes people dance i planted one in the cemetery when i was finshed the game to pay respects to fiona and then the ghost the warden prison and lighthouse keeper came out from behind a headstone and started boogying it was really funny

  50. i feel stupid….. my poptropican new who the cloaked spirit was before me!!

  51. I have done everything in the lighthouse and i put that temperature device but when i came to the main island the temperature device is not showing that the temperature has landed down. What do I do?

    • On top of the lighthouse, make sure to shine the light on the prison and examine it. Also, make sure you’ve done all the steps in the prison, as written in the walkthrough.

  52. Awesome walk through! Thanks! :D

  53. hey when i do the violin thing,nothing happens!!!NOTHING!!!! what did i do wrong?!

  54. nvm but now i cant get the lady to go to her window

  55. FEARLESS OWL says:

    my name is actually fearless owl on poptropica i put the wrong name!!! XD

  56. FEARLESS OWL says:


    • Rainbow Star says:

      I know this is happening to me too!! I tried to report this to the creators but they still havn’t fixed it! Its more annoying that I’m done all the islands exept ghost story cuz of this error! I tried everything but nothing happens HELP!

    • When you’re looking through the binoculars, move your cursor up so that it’s pointing at the top window where the woman should be. Also, make sure you’ve played the violin song (by moving the bow side to side).

    • i went to the roof and used the thing and it worked maybe you have a glitch.

  57. Lolz, i have completed all these islands and im currently working on vampire’s curse! I’m halfway so im really proud of myself, i play on it once a week so yeah :)))

  58. Thank you verymuch

  59. xxsamanthaxx says:

    But at the end i thought there was more to it

  60. Strange Sun says:

    Loved this island!! But I wouldn’t have been able to finish it if it weren’t for this site!! love it!

  61. fearless owl says:


  62. Dangerous Fire says:

    I got the guys with the newspapers in front of the souviener shop, but the magistrate never ordered them off

  63. when I click the camera nothing happens and then I can’t open the inventory. Maybe the world IS ending!

    • Are you talking about the flashing camera icon in the corner? If so, clicking on it should bring up your inventory. If it doesn’t, still try to open your inventory so you can use the camera to take a picture.

  64. umana13 says:

    how did u put the flowers?

  65. the ol lady was soooooooooooooooooooooo scary I really fell off my chair.

  66. I had my heart racing and I screamed when i heard that old lady too. But thank you for the island guides I always come to this site for help.

  67. Creepy Bird says:

    I was playing based on this, and I went back to the lighthouse and the temperature didn’t drop! Did I forgot to do something?

  68. Barefoot Wolf says:

    When i was playing the violin the progress bar didnt move. I moved it side to side but nothing happened at all. Did i do something wrong or is it some kind of glitch?

    Slanted Fish: Maybe you’re not moving it enough, so keep it moving side to side until the progress bar moves!

  69. Icy Speck says:


  70. gloria19012 says:

    At the bit where I get out of the tree stump, I do n’t hide or anything. I am just standing there. Can you help me? My username is gloria19012.

    • Maybe it’s a glitch – are you able to move? What needs to happen is that your character walks over to the other person staking out at the graveyard, and you both hide so you can spy on the cloaked guy.

      • gloria19012 says:

        There is no other person!

      • There should be. Make sure you’ve done all the steps leading up to that part, because you can’t really skip around or you may miss something. Check the guide for more details.

      • gloria19012 says:

        Yes I can move, I even went back into the labyrinth and restarted the island!

      • gloria19012 says:

        I restarted the island from scratch… Wat do i do now?

      • You follow the guide and complete the island.

      • gloria19012 says:

        @Samwow5: Duh, I meant that what do I do cause I did follow the guide, thanks to your FANTASTIC advice and I get the same problem! Now what do I do?

      • Make a new person I guess, and I was not being mean to you I thought you didn’t know.

      • You do not need to make a new account if you’ve restarted the island. Follow the guide in the right order and you will eventually reach the point where you need to take a picture of the cloaked character. When you’re there, a girl will automatically come up to you and say that the spirit will be here any moment, and both of you hide.

        Your cursor won’t allow you to move until he appears and you are prompted to take a photo. If this doesn’t happen, make sure you have followed ALL steps leading up to this point. Also note that after you exit the labyrinth, you still need to go up a short distance to see the girl. Standing around isn’t going to do anything.

      • slanted fish i think she means when you have to go somewhere in the fog and the guy comes and he sneezes i think that was the part.

  71. the blonde girl who was first hiding behind a grave,waiting for the cloaked spirit,the one who forgot her camrea so you take a picture.

  72. tank u for this guide guys i lov-… lik-… ur good

  73. WERTYUIOE says:

    where do i find fionas scrapbook?

  74. Icy Speck says:

    fiona didnt drop anything what do i do!!!?? i tried logging off and then on but it didnt work!

  75. Icy Speck says:

    please help i still cant find it!

  76. Massive Star says:

    this island scares me,but i finished it anyway

  77. Please help me! When I went back to the lighthouse after escaping from the prison, it didn’t mention the temperature, so now I can’t see the ghost in the lighthouse. I tried logging out and in again, but it didn’t work.

    Slanted Fish: Try going back to the mainland (the area that isn’t the prison or lighthouse), where you started the island.

  78. Will you hear the violin music when you are playing the violin with the volume on?

    Slanted Fish: Of course. But if you turn your volume off, you won’t hear any sounds from the game.

    Slanted Fish: Inside the newspaper building, keep moving around until you see her.

  80. I don’t want to be mean, but this is NOTHING THAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!!! :( I was looking for what to do on S.O.S. Island! |:(

    Slanted Fish: Try contacting Poptropica about the glitch.

  105. Icy Skunk says:

    Hey why did Fiona look solid and look old when you see her at the old house? At the end she is transparent and young! BTW the “Are you looking for someone?” part scared the living DAYLIGHTS out of me! D:

  106. Yellow Comet says:

    Where is the scrapbook?

  107. I’m sorta confused even though I finished the game. How come Fiona is dead while I got to talk to her in the beginning?

  108. LOLLADY says:

    where can i find the lady who is running the newspaper?

    Slanted Fish: She’s inside the newspaper building on Main Street, the office of the Hemlock Herald.

  109. dman32397 says:

    my follower is in the center of the map when i’m on the boat LOL

  110. dman32397 says:

    I clicked use on the ring again and Fiona and the guy who says that he has returned were invisible and I thought Wtf!?!?!?

  111. OSDJKOSD says:

    I love this island! Sad story, and strange. Very mixed up!!! XD

  112. Ok so I don’t understand what happened… Fiona was engaged to Henry Flatbottom and then his best friend Valiant Lovejoy (aka, the magistrate) liked Fiona so he faked a note to Henry that made him leave town where he died in a boating accident that was caused because the lighthouse dude took a nap? And Valiant also promised some prisoner he would break him out but actually tricked him into digging into a vault. And the warden is all upset about that. That bit seems so completely unrelated…. Help me understand!

    • Henry Flatbottom is the magistrate, not Valiant. Fiona loved Valiant, and Henry was Valiant’s friend, but Henry also liked Fiona and chose to betray Valiant in order to try and win Fiona’s heart. Henry sent the false note in the locket to Valiant, tricking his friend into thinking Fiona didn’t want him anymore so that Henry could be with her. However, Fiona only loved Valiant, and rejected Henry when he tried to give her a ring. It turns out Fiona is a dead spirit, and the magistrate (the cloaked guy in the cemetery) has been trying to plead forgiveness for the death of Valiant. Valiant died from the shipwreck caused by the lighthouse keeper who had taken a nap on the job, and he had been on that ship because of Henry’s forged locket note thinking Fiona was telling him to get out of her life. Kind of confusing, but I hope that helps. :P

      • If Fiona was actually a dead spirit, why did we see Fiona as alive and not see-through like the other ghosts?

      • I’m not sure about that, but my guess is that they didn’t want to give the story away before the ending when you find out that Fiona was dead.

  113. Elissa67590 says:

    Idk if this is a glitch but whenever I use the ring infront of the magistrate after I finished the island, the ghosts appear again except for Fiona and Valiant. So there are now 5 medals in my items and it says I finished the island 5 times. And there are floating speech bubbles lol.

  114. dargeous curmb says:

    it glitched on me when i got the locket it woud not let me in the house where fiona is

  115. I accidentally did things in the wrong order. I went to the prison first and did the stuff there and then went to the lighthouse. I put up the thermometer but its not going off! Help!

  116. LittlePadfoot says:

    it wont let me give hi the hot cross buns on the table its just “i wonder if ghosts can eat food” then im stuck in the wardens office

    Slanted Fish: Make sure you’ve done all the steps prior to that point in the guide, and check to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

  117. thanks so much! I wish I knew your username i would like to make you my friend!!! love xtra comments!! -Fearless Bear (popkornns)

  118. Angelica-Fresh says:

  123. It really creeps me out that the woman in the old house was Fiona but she’s dead already o-o

  124. ShyJumper says:

    When I talk to the Editor lady she says ” Back so soon? Have you found any evidence yet?” And won’t let me go to the archives after I talked to the man wanting to know where Silas Moon was buried. Is it just me having this problem?

    Slanted Fish: Check the guide and make sure you’ve done everything prior to that point!

  125. awesomeguy112 says:

    Whenever I try to enter the lighthouse for the first time, (when the boat guy comes) I click on the ENTER on the door, but the poptropica screen is white and it has a “!” on it. PLEASE HELP ME :(

    Slanted Fish: There may have been a loading error. Try refreshing the page.

    • Quick Fang, (AKA awesomeness) says:

  148. I was playing and I logged off for about 20 minutes to get a snack, and when I came back and logged in I couldn’t find the scrapbook! But I don’t want to have to start the island over after I’m almost done with it. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!! I could really use some advice!

  171. Cool Ghost says:

    Fun fact: if you click on the dummy in Fiona’s storm cellar, you’ll find out that it’s only a sewing dummy, and your character will say: “Phew… it’s only a sewing dummy!”, then it will laugh.

  172. ok
