Welcome to the Poptropica Help Blog’s eleventh issue of the Poptropican’s 911, for all your Poptropica emergencies! April showers brings May flowers!
I can’t finish Mythology Island because I can’t find my drachma because I used it to buy the wind bag? ~Lmrfood
You don’t need another drachma, because you can get free refills for your wind bag by going back to the person who sold you the wind bag.
Recently I was on Poptropica and I was playing Reality TV Island and I was delivering the pizza but I never got to keep the pizza! Is there anyway to get it back? ~Kevin O.
Sorry, we don’t think there is any way for you to get the pizza if you have already finished with that part of Reality TV Island. If you wanted to keep it, you could have saved it on your Costume Collector (from the Poptropica Store) while you still had it.
Everybody waits for you now… what happens next?
The Unknown Island [Parts 8~12]: by Sparkle Star/Green Seal
[Continued from March's magazine!] Part 8:
2 hours ago, back in Poptropica…
“What?! No treasure? You’ve got to be kidding me, Sam,” said Pete irritably, talking on his cell phone. Pete was a criminal, and a greedy one at that. He was smart, but used his brain only for evil plots to get richer. Pete stomped along the sidewalk angrily.
“No, no, don’t talk in that tone, Sam! There HAS to be treasure there. Or else.” said Pete, holding his super-expensive cell phone to his ear. “Well, check again!” Pete yelled, which caused some poptropicans to stare. “Listen, Sam,” hissed Pete in a quieter voice, “there has to be treasure in there, and if you don’t get it and give it to me, you’re fired!”
“Yeah, now that’s better, Sam,” said Pete. He hung up, and put his phone into his pocket. Pete felt something crunch underneath his leather shoe. “What’s this?” He stopped and picked it up. It was a piece of paper which looked very old and was crumpled.
Curious, he straightened the paper and looked at it closer. “Huh,” he commented as he examined the paper. “It seems to be a map of some kind,” Pete smiled, and his golden tooth gleamed.
“Er… boss? Um, don’t you think this might be kind of… fake?” said Carl — one of Pete’s employees– timidly. “Now, if it was fake, do you think I’d be showing it to you?” replied Pete, aggravated as usual. “Er…” said Carl, wringing his hands nervously. “The answer is no, Carl. It is not fake.” said Pete. Although Carl disagreed, he kept silent.
“So guys, what I need you to do is help me find the island on my private jet,” said Pete to the rest of his employees. A bunch of people raised their hands, wanting to board the “Pete Force 500″ : the fanciest, biggest, and most expensive plane in Poptropica.
“Eh, I choose Jack and Fred,” said Pete. “Yes!” they said simultaneously and high-fived each other. Pete rolled his dark brown eyes behind his sunglasses. “When do we start, boss?” asked Fred. “Now,” said Pete.
The three poptropicans stepped into the “Pete Force 500″ — Jack and Fred ooh-ing and aah-ing and Pete rolling his eyes. Pete sat down next to the pilot. “So, uh, pilot-guy, I need you to fly around the sea, looking for some island that isn’t an island that we already know.” said Pete. “Well, firstly,” he said in a British accent, “my name is not this ‘pilot guy’, it’s George. And secondly, I have not a clue what you are trying to explain to me.” Pete frowned. No one, no one, had ever talked back to him. He decided to ignore George’s comment.
“All I need you to do is to um, look for an island, but not the islands that we already know and can get to on the blimp. An island, that looks like this,” said Pete, showing the pilot the map that he’d found. “Okay,” said George.
On an unknown island, 3 hours later…
Green Seal took out the laser pen from her bag. She quickly cut the bars of the cells, allowing 55 poptropicans to break free. They had gotten in the factory through a window which Friendly Heart had used her shovel to break through. From there they had laid the stink bomb which Green Seal made on the floor, causing all the guards to leave.
At first the poptropicans were stunned. To them it seemed like the bars had just cut in half by themselves. They just stood there in their cells for five minutes, and Green Seal, Friendly Heart, and Shiny Shell took off their chameleon suits and told them to go.
“Go silently, and wear these,” said Green Seal, and passed around chameleon suits. The poptropicans nodded and did what Green Seal instructed. In a matter of minutes, the room was empty of poptropicans.
They lead the group of poptropicans to the plane, which was hidden by palm trees. It was a tight space to fit 58 poptropicans, but they made it, and some were given jet packs. They flew in the night sky, a strange sight..
But, suddenly, in the middle of their flight, something else was heading their way– a big plane. Suddenly a large net from the plane shot out, capturing 58 poptropicans..
“Oh no, not again,” some poptropicans moaned. Then everything turned black.
“Wow,” said Pete, surprised. “The amount of money in ransom I could get for these poptropicans…”
Green Seal awoke, rubbing her eyes and hoping the event was just a bad dream. But it wasn’t. A poptropican with sunglasses stood before her, with two big poptropicans behind him. “Hey guys, look,” said the poptropican. “It’s a kid.”
Green Seal froze. She decided to not say anything until she knew who that person was and whatever it was he wanted. “And one more,” said the poptropican on the left, pointing at Friendly Heart, who was still unconscious.
Green Seal thought about a way to escape. They were in a small, white room with no windows and one door, which was locked and had four poptropicans blocking it. And what happened to their plane? Green Seal turned around and saw a crushed brown plane behind the poptropicans. The Nabooti pilot would not be happy. But at least everyone was alive. Even if they were held captive.
The poptropican with the sunglasses chuckled. “What are you going to do now? Call your mommy?” Green Seal clenched her fists angrily. “I’m no ordinary kid,” she said, rather boldly. He chuckled again, which made Green Seal even more mad.
Then, as if out of nowhere, Green Seal punched Pete in the stomach, with such an incredible force, that he and the guards fell back. They were completely knocked out. Green Seal stared at her hand for the first few seconds, wondering how she could be so strong. Then the moans of the poptropicans behind her woke her from her trance.
She woke the other 57 captive poptropicans. Green Seal realized she was stuck. Pete and the guards were waking up, meaning they couldn’t get through the door, and that meant there was no exit. Or was there? Couldn’t she simply make an exit? Green Seal smiled. She could.
First, she looked through her bag in the broken Nabooti plane. She got out a set of parachutes (from the game, Sky Dive) and jet packs and handed them out to everyone. Then, using the same force as she did with punching Pete, she used her fist to make a massive hole in the plane wall.
The wall crumbled easily, which was still unexpected. The poptropicans hurried out the hole, with their parachutes and jet packs, lead by Green Seal. They went down slowly, as if it were all a dream.
And, as fate would have it, they landed on Spy Island safely. Pete’s plane was still flying in another direction. They waited until the plane was gone, then sighed sighs of relief. They were free. All 58 of them.
An old poptropican walked up to Green Seal, smiling. “I knew you would do it. I just knew it.” she said.
“Aunt Starfish?” Green Seal hadn’t recognized her at first.
“Yes, Green Seal. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you earlier, but–”
“Tell me what?” Green Seal asked curiously.
“You have magic,” she stated.
Green Seal blinked. “Magic?”
“Yes. Magic. You have the power to do anything you want to. All you have to do is just think about it hard enough.”
“How do you know?”
“I gave it to you, that’s why.”
Green Seal was confused. “What?”
Aunt Starfish nodded. “I gave it to you the day you were born. My magic was withering. It needed a new owner. So I gave it to you. I performed a spell to transport my magic from me to you. And from what I’ve seen, it has worked.”
“Oh.” That explained her sudden strength. “So that’s why you told me to save you. And that person who teleported the note to me. Does he have magic, too?”
Aunt Starfish laughed. “No. That’s all he can do, just teleport things. I think he’s just been near radiation too much.”
Then Friendly Heart emerged from the bushes. “Have you been spying on our conversation?” Green Seal asked. “Maybe.” Friendly Heart smiled. They all smiled, then laughed. “And you must be Friendly Heart,” said Aunt Starfish. “Yes, yes, I am.” replied Friendly Heart.
And they all lived happily ever after. Aunt Starfish and Uncle Starfish came to live with Green Seal and Friendly Heart joined them. Green Seal was never bored anymore. Pete and his guards were stuck in jail for twenty years, not only for the kidnapping, but also for the other crimes they had committed. And the island remained unknown.
Author’s Message: I hope you enjoyed the story! It’s completely fiction, just so you know. Green Seal, Friendly Heart, Shiny Shell, and Blue Starfish are all accounts of mine.
The Counterfeit Case [CHAPTER FOUR]: by Neat Whale
[Continued from March's magazine!] Neat Whale ran up tho the front stoop, panted, and turned the pine-pop-wood key in the lock. When she opened the door, she put her guard up–anything could happen to her now. But when she got upstairs, she couldn’t help herself. she let her guard down as she ripped off the painting that the man had sold her to see, in horor…
[Continued from March's magazine!] Finally, Stuart and Peppermint were ready to set off on their adventures. Stuart had the books, and Peppermint had all the equipment. But the hardest part was getting there. Stuart knew a pilot, but he hadn’t seen him for a year and a half. The pilot was a close friend of Stuart’s family, but he had moved farther north in the state. Stuart quickly decided that he should get in contact with him.
“Hey!” said Peppermint. “Finally decided where to go?”
“Yeah, we have to contact an old friend,” replied Stuart. Stuart went into the next building they saw. It was a barber shop. Stuart rushed in asking, “Can we use your phone?!”
“Fine, fine,” replied the barber.
Stuart picked up the phone book and looked for the pilot’s name, John Mack. Finally, he found the listing and quickly called the number.
“Hello? Who is this?” asked John.
Stuart quietly replied, “This is Stuart. Remember me?”
“Oh yeah! How are your parents?” asked John.
“They’re good. Listen, we need a plane over here now. Can you come? It’s an emergency!”
“Sure. I’d be happy to.”
“Thanks!” said Stuart.
Thirty minutes later, Stuart saw the small, yellow plane rushing at him. He quickly got out of the way as John landed right in the middle of the street.
“Come on!” yelled John.
Peppermint and Stuart quickly hopped into the back seat. And off they were to Nabooti Island.
Pheonix Master – The Legend Of Great Booga (Chapter Two): by Hapykidi1
[Continued from March's magazine!] At the Tourist Center, I met a nice guy called Purple Lion, a friend of Shark Boys, and his girlfriend. I didn’t hear her name, but me and her were great friends. I had the suspision that me and her had met before, but I didn’t bother to say anything.
When the games started Sharkboy went first. He asked Lion the question, “Truth or Da-” Loin ammidiatly said dare, before shark boy could finish though. “Okayyyy” Shark said. “I dare you to go to the ocean and swim past the abandoned Island and go underwater… then if you can…” “Whoa whoa whoa… not that much info! make it shorter and talk slower!” Lion Interupted. Shark grumbled something under his breath. Then he spoke slowly and clearly. “I dare you to swim past the abandoned island and go under the water for 5 full minutes.” I looked shocked, because he had given the most awful dare ever, and Lion was grinning. Loin got up, and left and didn’t come back. while we waited we carried on. eventually I dared my dear friend who I didn’t know her name, and she said dare. I thought for a few seconds, then said “Go find Lion.” Shark boy put his hand up, threatening to slap me. All else was uneventful, exept the girl had returned saying she couldn’t find Lion.
the next day, Lion hadn’t made his way back, but the temple ruins were blocked off. Back to order of when things happened though. When I awoke, I saw feet infront of me. I got up, in the ruined old pajamas i got out of a trashcan back on 24 carrot before the tsunami. When I saw who it was, I was shocked. “U-u-uuhhhhhhh… hello officer…” I said nevously to the policeman. “Young Lady! get back here!” He called. “Sir, I didn’t move exept for getting up.” I told him. “Not you,” he pointed down the allyway i was in. “That’s the womans name.” Suddenly he took off after Young Lady. I quickly got dressed. I was finished just as a troop of police came rushing through the hallway. “Heh, I could use some glory,” I said, then I let my wings grow. suddenly I was in my master form, and I had my Pheonix with me. I flew through the allyway, trying not to be seen. soon enough I caught the woman. “Why were you running, Young Lady?” I asked. “I’m not going to talk to you. I let myself go back to normal, and had her stuck. suddenly the Police came. “I caught her, but no use finding out why she ran.” I told them, then walked off to school. My first day in highschool was a mess! I’m not even going to describe it. the next saturday, Sharkboy, the girl and I went to the museum where Sharkboy had his shift. Sharkboy out of the blue in the middle of a conversation said “Lion isnt dead. We have a plan. I need you two to help us. “Alright,” the other girl said. “I’ll do it.” They both looked at me. Pressured, I said “Uhmmm okay…” [To be continued in future issues of the Poptropican's 911!]
Mythology Madness: by Green Boa
“Watch it Lightning! We’re going down fast!” Shouted Green Boa, trying to get the blimp facing upwards.
“I KNOW!” Yelled Friendly Lightning. “I’m trying to get the flame restarted but it’s not lighting in this storm!” Green Boa and Friendly Lightning, two best friends, had been treveling for weeks, looking for new islands, trying to escape the complete boredom of Early Poptropica. They’d where looking for Astro Knights island, but a massive storm had blown them off course.
“We’re going doooooown!” Yelled Green Boa, trying to keep his ice-cream on his head and hold onto his guitar.
“Where does the electronic map say we’re going to land?” shouted Friendly Lightning.
Green Boa pulled the small map (that looked like a video game, and did include games, and special tools) and tried to focus his eyes.
“Looks like we’re heading straight for Reality TV island!”
“TV? We’re gonna be on TV?!” shouted Friendly Lightning excitedly.
“I don’t think so!” yelled Green Boa.
“Why not? Oh of course! We didn’t send applications in!”
“No it’s not that!” Green Boa roared over the storm. “It’s that we’re heading straight into the mouth of the Mt Eruptalot!”
“Mt Euruptalot?” Friendly Lightning screamed. “The active volcano?!”
“Theres only one Mt Euruptalot, and yes, it’s the active volcano!”
“Aaaaargh!” yelled Friendly Lightning. “I’m gonna melt!”
“What about me?” screamed Green Boa. “I’m a ice-cream! And we’re gonna go crash in 3, 2, 1,
[Continued from March's magazine!] Overhead, the Villain King sailed, but very slowly, and you suspect that it’s either on purpose just so the villains on it can see what’s happening below, or that it’s just way too big. Unfortunately, Barry Beast isn’t the only one who’s going to fight you. The huge ship (purposely) drops a huge army of robot versions of Poptropicans, and they all glare at you with gleaming, huge, scarlet eyes. The audience gasps in horror and you gulp, but before you can say anything, one robot jumps on you, wrestling you to the ground. Screaming, you shove him off, but two more jump on you as well. And more. And more. There’s too many on you to fight off! Soon a huge heap of those darn robots are on top of you, wrestling you to the ground, and you squirm and struggle yourself out, panting. Suddenly, you hear a yell. You look up and see it’s from Fredericka, who’s still entrapped in Barry Beast’s hand. “Catch this!” she yells, and throws something to you. You catch a glimpse of silver before you catch it in your hand. It’s a beautiful silver-bladed sword, with a diamond-and-pearl studded gold hilt. You use to slash at the robots and cut them apart, letting the crackling of wires constantly fill your ears (that can’t be seen, of course). After you slash the last robot in half, you turn and see Barry Beast running off AGAIN.
“OH NO YOU DON’T!” You leap as high as you can through the air and bring the sword down onto the monster’s head. Although he’s not bleeding (his skin is made up of many tough layers) he screams with pain and turns around, his arms waving wildly through the air as he tries to grab you. You jump right out of his reach and bring the sword down onto the fist that is entrapping Fredericka, and then you do the same for Carlotta. You keep banging your sword on the fists until finally, you leap back onto his head and start banging your sword on his head again. He lifts his fist to crush you once and for all, but fortunately, at the last second, you leap off and he bonks himself on the head—HARD. And then, as he yells with pain, you slash the sword across his chest—although it makes a long mark, it doesn’t bleed since there are many more layers of skin—and let the sword light shoot straight into the mark on his chest. Immediately Barry Beast lets out a loud, long howl of anguish and pain, and then suddenly—BOOM! A blazing hot fire-like cloud from the explosion touches your shoulder, and you yelp with pain, but suddenly you feel a hand grab yours and feel like you’re going up, up, up through the clouds of the explosion. Then, you burst out of the blazing clouds like a rocket, leaping high, although Fredericka’s leaping even higher. Then the two of you land just a few feet away from Barry Beast’s shriveled up body, but you can’t help wondering—where’s Carlotta? Suddenly you see her—sprawled across the ground on the other side of the stadium, struggling to get up.
However, before you can even make a single step toward her, a flash of pink jumps in. It’s Dr. Hare! He has the same sphere that the Binary Bard had, and now he presses a button on the back of it and—NO! The long green ray shoots into Carlotta and turns her into a book!
“NO!” both you and Fredericka scream. Dr. Hare turns to face you, the book form of Carlotta now slung over his shoulder, and he laughs at you. “Guess you won’t be seeing your little princess friend for a while! BWA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!!!” Then he turns to bound off, but suddenly, POW!
“YOU INSULT TO THE NAME OF BUNNY RABBITS!” Fredericka screams. She lifts her fist, ready to punch him again. He’s rubbing his head, groaning, and—book-transformed Carlotta’s just a few feet away! You scamper to her and grab her up, then run out of the stadium. Fredericka, seeing that you’ve got Carlotta, abandons Dr. Hare and follows you out of the stadium. Once you’re outside, Fredericka casts a star-shaped gold platform, which you and her hop on, with her holding on to you as you drive the gold platform through the air and away from the stadium, the book-transformed Carlotta tightly clutched in your hand. But suddenly, you hear a yell. You turn for a split second to see Dr. Hare on his own platform, chasing you, cackling wickedly.
“DRIVE FASTER!” Fredericka screams at you. “I’m driving as fast as I can, Princess!” you retort back at her. She groans and murmurs something, which suddenly makes our platform speeding up dramatically. The wind whips your hair and whistles loudly in your invisible ears (since you can’t see Poptropicans’ ears), and suddenly, you feel something slip between your hands and—
“NO! CARLOTTA!!!!” Fredericka screams. She pushes you aside (“HEY!”) and drives the platform in a mad rush to grab the book-transformed Carlotta, who’s falling quickly through the air! But Dr. Hare also notices and steers his platform towards the book-formed princess as well. Fredericka reaches out a hand to grab her nearby book-formed sister, but suddenly, Dr. Hare shoves her aside and grabs Carlotta!
“HEY! YOU DIRTY CHEATER!” both you and Fredericka shriek. Dr. Hare only laughs at you and disappears into the nearby sailing Villain King (when did THAT get here?) and you and Fredericka jump off the platform and onto the deck of the ship, before the blonde princess waves her hand and makes the platform disappear. Then, the two of you start searching for an entrance to get in—
“MAYDAY! MAYDAY! WE’RE GOING DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
You and Fredericka look up to see a spiraling little green plane with smoke coming out of its damaged side, and you catch a glimpse of Coskit inside, trying frantically to steer it, and some brown-haired girl next to her. The brown-haired girl is wearing a pink shirt that has a little name tag on it that says: QUICK FISH. So the girl’s name is Quick Fish.
“RUN!” Fredericka screams, and both you and her are just about to turn to run for your lives when suddenly—
The little green plane slams right into the deck of the ship and blows you and Fredericka right off your feet and off the ship! You catch a brief glimpse of Coskit and Quick Fish falling in the opposite direction as well. But you frantically wave your arms through the air as you fall, praying inside your head that you and Fredericka won’t get killed once you two land.
Where will you and Fredericka end up? Why are Poptropica’s most evil villains turning Poptropicans into books without pages? What will happen to Carlotta, Green Seal, Scary Tomato, Neat Whale, Coskit, and Quick Fish? And when will Carlotta, Green Seal, and Scary Tomato be rescued? [To be continued in future Poptropican's 911 issues!]
