Written Walkthrough

Walkthrough and pictures by Brave Tomato & Slanted Fish

Welcome to Hemlock Harbor, a town rumoured to be rampant with ghosts. Pick up a shaker of Salt from the superstitious guy on the left. This may seem odd right now, but you’ll need it later.

ghoststory1

Next, head left and you’ll be at the entrance to the cemetery. When you walk further, your character will hear something. Then the gates will open… revealing a tour guide. Thank goodness. He’s just about to tour you around “haunted” places, when the ma-magi-magistrate busts him. Mr. Tour Guide will run off and his Pamphlet will conveniently land into your hands.

ghoststory3 copy

The magistrate will tell you to find a place to reside for the night, but you really don’t have anywhere to go. For now, talk to the mopey-looking guy on the left. He’s looking for his uncle’s grave, but can’t find it.

ghoststory5

Head back to Main Street on the right, and enter the newspaper building, The Hemlock Herald. Ask the lady to let you see the archives, and she’ll allow you with no worries. Enter the room marked “Archives”, then click on the box marked “Cemetery Plots”.

ghoststory6

Laugh at some of the names if you like, but keep turning the pages until you see the name Silas Moon. You’ll automatically highlight his name and the place he’s buried.

ghoststory8

Go back to the cemetery. Talk to the mopey nephew, and to thank you for the favor, he will give you his Room B Key – a key to a room at the inn! Great, you have a room to spend the night now.

ghoststory9

Head to the right again, past Main Street this time, until you see the inn. Enter, and a woman who looks like Edna Mode from The Incredibles will be relieved to know that a room became available for you, and says something about “preparations”. Odd. Go upstairs into room 2B, the one you have a key for. Click on the bed and you’ll try to fall asleep.

ghoststory11

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

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, but they apologize. 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.

ghoststory13Go back out into the hallway of the inn and go over to where the piano is. Click on the Violin and Music next to it to take it with you.

ghoststory14 copyExit and jump up to the roof of the inn, then click use on the violin. Move the bow back and forth to play the song. Don’t worry if your bow starts glowing, that’s normal. Keep your volume up for this part, and enjoy the tune!

ghoststory16

After playing the song, you’ll notice a movement in the window of the mansion.

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.

ghoststory17 copyGo back to the roof of the inn and use the binoculars. You’ll see an elderly woman open the curtains temporarily and close them again, and then she’ll beckon you over.

ghoststory19

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’ll 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, and climb up.

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, and look through it for a bit.

ghoststory20

As you 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 the Gingerbread House, and say that “Fiona” sent me.

ghoststory22Exit the mansion and enter to the bakery on Main Street. Talk to Jane the baker and tell her that Fiona sent you. Ignore the other two wacky responses.

ghoststory23Jane will press a button and reveal a secret cabinet with an impressive array of ghost-hunting equipment: a Thermal Sensor, a Thermometer, an EMF Detector, and a Camera – all of which she gives to you.

(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 the plate of Hot Cross Buns from the table.

Your character will decide that the cemetery is probably the best place to go ghost-hunting, so head over to the cemetery on the left, and enter through the gates.

You’ll be in first person view again, but this time, it’s more annoying. Go forward by clicking straight arrows, or click the rounded arrow to change your direction. Check the map to watch out for dead ends.

gs6

Go forward, forward again, turn to the right, go forward, turn to the left, and enter through the gates 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.

ghoststory25

The camera will be flashing in the bottom right corner, so click on it to be brought to your inventory, and click use on your Camera. You’ll see a black and white screen. Aim for the hooded guy leaving a rose to take the Photo just as the man runs off. Good shot, though!

gs7

Exit the cemetery (you can click on “H” on the map to be brought right back to the start) and revisit the newspaper building, The Hemlock Herald. Use the photo, and the newspaper editor will reward you with some Money.

ghoststory27You should store this in the bank. Exit the newspaper building, and enter the bank. Go all the way right and down to the bank vault, then click use on the Money while standing in front of the security guard. He’ll lead you inside the bank vault.

ghoststory29 copy

Inside, the security guard’s dog will start digging away at the ground, bothered by something.

ghoststory30

The thermal detector will flash in the bottom right corner. Use it, and scan the area underneath where the dog is digging. You’ll see a ghostly figure hammering away at something.

gs9

Okay… something is down there. Or someone.

In the meantime, go outside near the Hemlock Herald news building. You’ll see a group of undercover ghost hunters carrying newspapers, including tinfoil 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 at everyone to go home. Everyone else runs off, and the magistrate warns you that he’s keeping his eye out on you.

ghoststory31

Meanwhile, a boat docks near the shores of the manor with the woman in the window.

ghoststory32

Go over there, and you’ll see the boat’s sailor, who’s looking for a room. Give him your Room B Key, and he’ll thank you by letting you use his boat anytime.

ghoststory33

Get on the boat and head to the left. Dock at the lighthouse there.

ghoststory34As you enter the lighthouse, grab the unlit Torch. It’ll be helpful once you get inside.

ghoststory35

Enter the lighthouse and equip the Torch. Stop by the lit torch to light your torch, then start going up the stairs. Jump two times upwards, then duck, minding the 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. Keep this up until you reach the top.

gs11

When you get up, you’ll wonder about the temperature, and the thermometer will flash in the bottom left corner. Use your Thermometer to place it on the wall. Then, go to the right a little and up the ladder.

ghoststory37

You can shine the lighthouse’s light around, and if you check the top-right corner you’ll see an Alcatraz-like prison. Jump off the lighthouse and get on the boat. Head over there, but watch out for the rocks, and dock at the prison.

ghoststory38Enter the prison, and click use on the EMF Detector. Head towards the right and take the elevator 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, and 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!

gs12

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 them. He also says that you aren’t Prisoner 24601 (that’s a reference to Les Miserables!).

ghoststory39

The spirit of the warden will give you a mugshot of the escaped prisoner, which also tells you which cell he was supposed to be in. After a bit of explaining from the warden, take the elevator 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 great. He wants you as a living replacement for a dead prisoner.

ghoststory40

Push the bed out of the way and you’ll see a hole. Go through it.

Using the thermal scanner, you’ll see someone in the top right corner. It’s probably the ghost of the escaped prisoner! Go along the tunnel path. Along the way, you’ll pick up Sardines, a Pickaxe, and a Note to Prisoner.

ghoststory41Read the note and talk to the prisoner to get the backstory about some guy named “Flatbottom” and another named “Valiant”. The plot thickens!

Then, go back the way you came and 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 this horrible prison island!

gs14

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 now… although there is a floating torch ascending the steps…

Go up the stairs, and at the top, you’ll find the spirit of the lighthouse keeper crying over a mistake that caused the restlessness in his afterlife.

He’ll also say that the remains of the boat he was responsible for crashing are north of the lighthouse. Exit the lighthouse and go on the boat. Travel north, and the light from the lighthouse will illuminate a horrible wreckage scene. Oh my goodness…

gs17

Examine the wreckage and you’ll find a Locket. Go back to regular land. When you land, examine the locket, and you’ll find the note forged by Prisoner 24601 on behalf of Flatbottom’s trick:

gs18

Oh… oh my gosh. Fiona?! New love?! Wasn’t the 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, showing her both the locket and the note to the prisoner. She’ll freak out.

Fiona says that the ring that this Henry guy gave her is at the bottom of the fountain, and then she’ll walk off sobbing. Get down and pick up the Scrapbook, then examine it.

gs22

The story’s coming together even more now…

Go to the fountain on Main Street, and you’ll find a bird guarding her nest there. Use the Sardines to drive her off, then click on the object shimmering in the nest. It’s the Ring!

ghoststory44Now, go left and enter the cemetery. The directions you should take are right, forward, left, forward, forward, forward, right, and enter through gate B. Run over to the right and enter the engraver’s shop. Click “use” on the ring in front of the engraver, and he’ll tell you that Flatbottom used it to propose to Fiona but was rejected.

You ask what Flatbottom’s job was, and the engraver tells you to go to the archives and look up August 18, 1929 for the whole story. (By the way, if you click on the owl in Cemetery lot B, the tinfoil hat guy will jump and mistake the hoots for the sounds of the spirits. Uh…)

Anyway, exit the cemetery and head over to the Hemlock Herald news building on Main Street. Inside, enter the Archives room and click on the microfilm resting in the right corner.

ghoststory46

Turn the cranks until it says 1929, then click zoom. Turns out, Henry Flatbottom is the magistrate!

gs29

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

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

ghoststory47

You’ll encounter another labyrinth, but to find your away around, just follow the pink rose petals. Use the map in the corner to watch out for dead ends and see what direction you’re facing. If you did it right, you’ll encounter a ladder up.

gs30

Go up the ladder. It’s a secret passage from the tree stump! You’ll hear footsteps and hide.

ghoststory48

It’s that cloaked guy… and he… he…

ghoststory49

…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 placed the flower on.

Once you get there, you’ll take off his hood, shake the salt into his eyes (told you it would be useful!)… and it IS the magistrate.

ghoststory50

He tries to go 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.

gs32

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…

And the spirit of Fiona comes out from behind a grave! She says that she forgives him and thanks him for his confession, at which point the rest of the spirits come over too. And… look who joined the party of four spirits and two mortals!

It’s Val-Val-Valiant!

Fiona approaches closer to Valiant and says that she thanks us for giving the restless spirits 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 to spend at the Store!

Congratulations! You have finished Ghost Story Island!

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

gs33

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

Trivia

  • Ghost Story Island is Poptropica’s 23rd island. The countdown started on December 12, 2011 and it was released on December 15 for members with a demo for non-members. It was opened to all on January 12, 2012.
  • Prisoner 24601 is a reference to Jean Valjean from Les Miserables.
  • Common room: Visitor Center
  • Salt is believed to protect from evil spirits, as used by one of the citizens on Ghost Story Island.
  • In the archive task of the Hemlock Herald building where you turn the handles to search through old newspapers, a box in the lower left corner is labeled “Balloon Boy articles” – Balloon Boy is a running gag that started with Counterfeit Island. Also in the archive room, there are boxes labeled “errata” (meaning printing errors) and “lorem ipsum” (a common placeholder text).
  • This is the first time you hear a Poptropican speak, and it’s Fiona sneaking up behind you asking, “Are you looking for someone?” Many players have reported being scared by the sudden unexpected whispery sound!
  • The poster of a ghost with a red circle and slash on it (found on Main Street) is a reference to theGhostbusters icon.
  • Valiant wears the same outfit Bert from Disney’s Mary Poppins wore during the part where they visit the cartoon world.
  • On November 21, 2011, a members-only Ghost Hunter Suit was released, but it had to be earned as a prize from the “Spook Central” mini-game. Several ghosts were scattered across Poptropica, and you were given a Plasma Net, Ghost Files, and an EMF detector to help you track them down. The Headless Horseman was on 24 Carrot, Sweet William’s ghost was on Shrink Ray, the Bell Witch was on Wild West, Deogen was on Steamworks, and the Brown Lady was on Skullduggery.

    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. 😦 The demo version was fun to me. 😀 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. 😉

  2. Grace says:

    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.

    • DizzyDee says:

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

      • All Hallow's Undefined! says:

        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!

  3. 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!!!

  4. 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

  5. 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!

      • Calm Sinker says:

        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!!!!

  6. 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???

    • ★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.

  7. 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?

    • oranges says:

      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.

  8. 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!!!!

      • 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.

    • 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…

  9. stephen says:

    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.

  10. Wild Kid aka Suri Spellriver aka Magyk says:

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

    • Slanted Fish says:

      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.

  13. 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).

  14. 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! 😀

  15. Gurmin says:

    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

  16. Anushka says:

    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?

    • Slanted Fish says:

      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.

  17. FEARLESS OWL says:

    HEY BT ARE YOU SURE WE ARE SUPPOSED TO STAND ON THE ROOF OF THE INN WEN WE LOOK THROUGH THE BINOCULARS?
    CAUSE NOTHIN HAPPENS

    • 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!

    • Slanted Fish says:

      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).

  18. Dangerous Fire says:

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

    • Slanted Fish says:

      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.

  19. 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?

  20. 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!

  21. 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.

    • Slanted Fish says:

      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.

      • Slanted Fish says:

        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:

        @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?

      • Slanted Fish says:

        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.

      • bushra says:

        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.

  22. Messy Bee says:

    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.

  23. Carolina says:

    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: Then you’re on the wrong page – this is the guide for Ghost Story. For SOS island’s guide, click here.

  24. Lillie Klipsch says:

    I almost had a heart attack when she talked!!! i thought my girlfriend walked into my room!!! thats what she sounds like when shes trying to be “suductive”. lol my life is screwed!!!!!

  25. Jumpy hawk says:

    im following the directions right but its not working it takes me back to gate H please help me and tell me if im doing it wrong right forward right forward forward forward right enter

  26. Silver Hero says:

    note:
    the photo that has a frame and appears in the inn room is a copy of a photo that appears in the old house in new jersey on cryptids island.

  27. itstoostrangeforme says:

    I have no idea why, but I could Chat, Battle, and Friend Edna and that other guy. Some person named Maroon Rider…

  29. Renee Honda says:

    I’m having trouble with the part where you talk a picture of the ghost with the rose. Every time i click on the camera it disappears and does nothing. What should i do? Please Reply as soon as possible.

    Slanted Fish: Try contacting Poptropica about the glitch.

  30. 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:

    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.

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

  33. Kenzie Rae says:

    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!

    • Slanted Fish says:

      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. 😛

  34. 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.

  35. emma says:

    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!

  36. 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.

  37. hatersloveme2490/hatersloveme4897/hip hop lover/17-time winner of Reality TV island/Poptropica girl with 2576 friends with membership/has all 35 medals/knucklehead5249 call me any of that. says:

    that floating torch and when the girl talked are like the scariest parts!!!

  38. 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!

  39. 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.

  40. hi. Please not that i'm made out of candy,so that means i'm ediable. PLEASE don't eat me because i'm actaully your candy god angel but you can call me magic snowball since that's my poptropican's name (add me as kkool223) says:

    the talking never scared me

  41. Funnyman1594 says:

    LOL!!! TOTAL GLITCH HERE!! AFTER I FINISHED THE ISLAND, I AM STILL HOLDING THE SALT!!!! XD XD sorry about the caps and exclamation points

  42. Ashlei says:

    AHHHHHHH!!!!!! I tried what Rover did and after that… my screen went up and down, even when I move and go on another island!!!!

  43. Orange Grape says:

    Thanks PHB for the walkthrough! It was so eerie yet cool! I loved how you did the ending with the flowers

    • Quick Fang, (AKA awesomeness) says:

      Shes a ghost, but your poptropican probably just thought she was solid when you saw her. equip your emf detector once you get to the woman in the window part next time. =) for me, it started going nuts!!

  44. Rough spinner says:

    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!

    • slantedfish says:

      You need to click on the people chatting about the newspaper, which will instigate some dialogue, and then the magistrate will come along and shoo everyone away.

  45. Orange Carrot says:

    I couldn’t find hot cross buns. When I clic to the plate my carecter is saying ” I wonder if ghosts can eat food.”

    • Nervous Mosquito says:

      Well…SAME !I play the Ghost Story in my other character.AND THAT VOICE FREAKED ME OUT!!!!!And when I play my favorite character,I just cover my ears and FINALLY I didn’t hear that CREEPY voice again.Thank goodness to myself…

  46. Big Turtle says:

    ok, so if at the end of the island, it reveals that Fiona had died. If she died A FEW YEARS AGO, then HOW DID YOU TALK TO HER EARLIER IN THE ISLAND?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    • slantedfish says:

      The tour guide from the beginning is at the cemetery entrance, but you’ll need to walk a bit towards it before your character hears something and the guide appears.

  47. Hyper Club says:

    *When in Fiona’s house*
    Me: NOPE! Creepy dolls! NOPENOPENOPENOPE!!
    *Later*
    Me: *sees telescope* Telescope! :D! *Makes it clear and starts looking around* So, I think I’m looking for someone…
    Fiona/Poptropica: Are you looking for someone?
    Me:NOPENOPENOPENOPENOPENOPENOPE!!!!!!!! D:!!!

  48. Red Club says:

    does anyone know how to get rid of the spaceship follower from the goldfish thingy?

    Slanted Fish: Go into your inventory’s Store items and click “turn off all special effects”. 🙂

  49. 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.

  50. Hyper Gamer says:

    Yes, just completed the island. It glitched at the end and played the ending again. I ended up with 2 medallions for this island. Now my island medallions count says “Ghost Story Island completed 2X”

  51. mad oh wait i got a new account says:

    i already completed this islan but i changed my password and forgot itnow i have to try to the islands agian

    • loudbelly says:

      You have to return to the mainland before it will give you the notification that the temperature has dropped. Then you can return to the Lighthouse and go to the top floor and find the ghost. Hope that helps 🙂

  52. hippiechick136 says:

    i did this one part before i read that part of the walk through. i was looking through the teltscope and i had the volume all the way up and i heard a voice say are u looking for someone? i got so scared! my sis was watching me play and she automatically looked at my closet and then looked back at me! then i read the guide and it said don’t worry no one is in your room it’s just the game

  53. Red Star says:

    Hi! Love your blog 🙂
    For some reason after I make the photo front-page news and I talk to the tinfoil hat guy, the magistrate doesn’t appear. 😦 This means the ship won’t dock and I won’t be able to continue! I tried talking to him multiple times and going to other places and trying again, but the magistrate still doesn’t appear! Help?

  54. Young Singer -Nariko- says:

    Wait…
    wait…
    WHAT??!!
    WHICH ONE IS THE REAL FIONA?!
    DID SHE GO well…. die… on purpose?
    and she turned younger…?
    much confuse.

  55. djscratchstep says:

    LOL! When I was doing the violin part, the bass drop on a Lindsey Stirling song was playing, so I thought I was playing Lindsey Stirling music.

  56. djscratchstep says:

    Another thing: If you look at the book when the warden locks you in the cell, there’s a pickaxe imprint in the book. So that’s how Prisoner 24601 escaped!

  57. djscratchstep says:

    *reaches end of island* But what if spirits were not kill? would they still be living lives on a daily basis? *illuminati triangle basses by in a millisecond* here’s footage we found: *shows rickroll video 🙂 *

  58. CrystalineFox says:

    The old guy who’s supposed to tell the group to go home and “is going to keep his eye on you” won’t appear in my game. 😦 and i even wanted to finish the island without coming here but i couldn’t figure out what to do next and found this glitch.

  59. D-Bear says:

    Cool! i didn’t know Poptropica had a guide forum. Also i really liked this island, one of the best ones yet in my opinion. It has a great story with some interesting twists along the way as well. ^-^

    End

    slantedfish: This fansite (the PHB) isn’t official, but we do have guides for all things Poptropica! 🙂

  60. Super Club says:

    Hi PHB authors! I love this blog, and it’s the only one I use. I’ve seen others before, but this is ultimately the best choice. I’ve always wanted to be a Poptropican blogger or something of the sort, and your blog is like a dream come true ;)! Thanks so much guys!

  61. Scary Onion says:

    OOOhhhh my gosh the voice was so scary I had the volume off and it was really loud I thought my balloon was talking to me!!!!

  62. Sticky Icicle says:

    Loved Ghost Story Island. ❤

    Despite all the creepy stuff going on there, I'm giving it a 10/10 😛 Lol.

  63. noe says:

    I ALMOST HAD A HEART ATTACK WHEN FIONA SAID,”ARE YOU LOOKING FOR SOMEONE?”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  64. A RANDOM CYBER GIRL XX says:

    When the lady said “Looking for someone?” after I looked through the telescope I got so freaked out 😛

  65. Shay says:

    Its saying I’m not finished the game and I’m thinking it has to do with the fact that we didn’t use the salt

  66. Friendly Foot says:

    the magistrate never shows up to tell me that he’ll “keep an eye on me”, which in turn doesn’t allow me to get to the part with the boat. help!!! (i triple-checked that i completed all the previous steps and i dont know what to do!)

    slantedfish: He should be in the Main Street area – if not, contact Poptropica support for help!

  67. Cool Foot says:

    I can’t seem to push open the lid of the grave. When I stand beside it and try to run to push, i just run down the hill! 😦

  68. ☠Jacob_Da_Boss☠ says:

    “Are you looking for someone?”
    I had no idea that was in the game and my volume was all the way up. I didn’t think it would be capable of doing so, but Poptropica legitimately scared me. xD

    • loudbelly says:

      You have to return back to the mainland before you will get the notification that the temperature has dropped. Then when you return to the Lighthouse he will be there on the top floor.

  69. BeastBoyTTG says:

    Yo! I’ve made Beast Boy from Teen Titans Go! on poptropica. too do this you go to home island building that you change outfits in and you color your skin bright green and color your hair dark green, and then you get the pointy elf ears on Night Watch island in Carnival costumes shop then you buy the Rock Singer and get the black jacket then you get the scientists shirt from Super hero island and you get the black pants from the guy in a suit in the spy island headquarters. . .you can add his shades on for Beast Boy too look cool, I have done it and he is currently my player

  70. lucky bird says:

  71. Popular Runner says:

  72. nalCnivlaC says:

    When ever I go to H in the cemetery and I go up to hide the camera doesn’t flash and I get stuck in an infinite loop of Shh I think hes comeing back

  73. Sammy says:

    PLEASE HELP after i talk to the people looking a the newspaper nothing happens!! The magistrate dude never comes to yell at us and os the boat is never docked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I already restarted the island and got the same problem. I followed all the steps!

  74. procrastinating says:

    I still don’t get how Fiona is dead.

    What I mean is that when we first go visit her, she was pretty mortal to me. But when we found out that she was dead, I had thought that she died recently from old age but then why would the gravestone be here since the beginning of the game huh? Then The Magistrate confirmed to us that she was dead for fifty years.

    And now I’m really confused. Who was the Fiona that was alive? The same Fiona who died 50 years ago or some kind of Creepypasta plot?

    Nyaahh

    • procrastinating says:

      Haha, nevermind. Found my answer to my previous question. Apparently Fiona’s some kind of spectre that can manifest herself into mortal beings?

      0_0 -> Creepy.

      This might not be useful to people who are also looking for the answer to the same question but I guess a little research is on tow.

      Anyways Toodles!

    • Slanted Fish says:

      That’s a fair question, and I’m still a bit confused on it myself. As you said, she definitely appeared as a mortal, living human (not translucent) when we first saw her – but she’s also confirmed to have been dead for a while (not 50 years, seeing as the magistrate is still living). I guess it’s up to us to make our own conclusions. Your theory that she (though physically dead) can manifest herself (her soul, I suppose) into her own physical body from her lifetime makes sense based on the observations, though it’s bizarre that she can access her body which should have rotted after death.

  75. Emily says:

    What do you do when you accidentally go to the prison and do all of that stuff before going to the lighthouse?

What's popping, Poptropicans?
