Have a Happy Poptropica Thanksgiving!

Yep, getting ready for holiday break (and Thanksgiving)? Well, here’s a post that will make you say “I just had a wonderful Poptropica Update Thanksgiving” as this post has a sprinkle of BTS (Behind the Scenes)!

TBT with Poptropica

Poptropica’s Cryptids is in for a Throwback Tuesday (or Thursday for most)! It seems like the Creators have an idea for a TBT: The cryptids in kindergarten.

Wow, Chupacabra didn’t like to share. Anyways, to the next part.

A delay with Arabian Nights Island

I recently was on Poptropica’s Twitter and I saw this:

Sorry members, but Arabian Nights Island (Episode 2) isn’t going to be an early access today. Instead, it’s pushed to two more weeks, releasing for members on December 11th and releasing for everyone on December 30th. Sorry for the sad news, members! 😦

Arabian Nights Episode Two info (CONTAINS SPOILERS!)

On the Arabian Nights Tour page, info about the second episode is now out! The episode is called Lair of Thieves.

Here is the synopsis:

In the den of the forty thieves, danger lurks around every corner. To outwit the most dangerous thieves in the desert, you’ll need a little help evening the odds – and you’ll find it in the form of an incredible magic power!

Wow, seems cool! So much action; I can’t wait to play it!

Poptropica Comics has come to an end

Yes, so subtitle says it all. Sadly, the Poptropica Comics for this year have come to an end (for 2014 at least), but don’t worry, you can read all of this year’s comics in the Daily Pop on Poptropica. Aaaaaaand… The Poptropica Creators also said that Oliver and Jorge will be back for more adventures in 2015. 🙂

Some BTS of the DP

Speaking of the Daily Pop, I found some cool BTS sneak peeps that hint to upcoming episodes for Arabian Nights, Poptropicon, and even the supposed new island, Galactic Hot Dogs Island.

Yep, and once again, there are new ads that just popped on Poptropica:

A Hot Wheels ad for guys,

And a Monster High ad for girls.

“This song shrunk me”

Jeff Heim, the composer of Poptropica Music, tweeted the song Avenue A (for Shrink Ray Island) last Friday

2 Down, 2 To Go

The Creators decided to bring us out of the dark (well, actually only partly out of the dark, but who cares about technicalities besides myself), cause they’ve started to tell us what the names of the tribes are!  They’ve only announced two so far, and one is awesome.  The other is well…terrible okay…I guess…

The Tribes of Poptropica: Flying Squid

Last week we gave you a teaser image of some of the tribes of Poptropica. This week, we’ll introduce you properly. Without further ado, say hello to…

Flying Squid

This tribe hopes to have more than an inkling of victory in the Poptropolis Games.

We’ll unveil the rest of the tribes throughout the week!

Yeah.  I guess you could tell that this is the okay one.  By the way, if any of you actually do like this one, I’m not trying to hurt your feelings or anything.  I just think that the next one is much better than this one.

Anyway, here’s the awesome one!

The Tribes of Poptropica: Seraphim

Continuing our look at the tribes of Poptropica, say hello to…

Seraphim

This tribe will rise and fall on the wings of their dreams. Maybe you can help them achieve such great heights!

That’s my tribe right there, peeps!

Um.  One question, though.  What does “seraphim” mean?

Update By Brave Tomato: I googled it and I found this:

Seraphim (pl, n): An angelic being, regarded in traditional Christian angelology as belonging to the highest order of the ninefold celestial hierarchy

Well… the Creators have gone a little religious there, haven’t they? Well, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series DID….

*transmission lost before Brave Tomato got a chance to finish for some reason. After all, it isn’t her post.*

The Twisted Thicket Island Now Has an Info Page…Just Watch Out For Thorns…

Twisted Thicket Island now has an info-page! :D   YAY!!!!!  NO MORE HAVING TO WAIT IN SUSPENSE FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER!

Sorry, it’s hard to stop writing “AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER”.  It’s sort of addicting…

So, as you probably guessed, cause they always have it and why would they stop right now, the Creators put the storyline of Twisted Thicket Island on the info-page.  And now you can read it and you won’t have to wait any longer to know what the island is about.  Yep, that’s right, no more having to wait FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER!

Come on, Icy Comet, you’re a civilized person, start acting like one.

Sorry about that.  You don’t know how hard it is to stop when you start writing…I’m not going to start writing it.  I probably won’t ever AND EVER AND EVER AND be able to stop….

Anyway, hopefully that won’t happen again and this will end like a normal post.  But don’t worry, it’s not ending yet.  This post won’t end FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER!

Here’s what the info-page says about the storyline of Twisted Thicket Island:

In case you can’t read it, this is what the picture says: A quiet seaside village has been attacked by mysterious beings that dwell nearby.  You are chosen to enter the dark woods and confront the creatures.  But beyond the forest’s edge lies a world of magic and danger, where the only thing more twisted than the tree trunks is the truth.

Okay, when I was typing that, it was actually the first time that I read the whole thing.  And let me just say, OMG it sounds so amazing and it’s worth waiting FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER for!

Before I go back to typing “FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER”, I’m going to finish this post if it kills me.  Here’s what the info-page says about the members-only bonus quest:

Here’s what the picture says in case you can’t read it: Poptropica Members can play a bonus quest after completing Twisted Thicket.  The woodland’s magical essence has scattered across the land.  It’s up to you to use your newfound powers to collect the missing shards and return them to their source.

Twisted Thicket, like S.O.S. Island and Vampire’s Curse Island has some members-only items.  Hopefully the items will be better than the ones for Vampire’s Curse Island…

In case you can’t read it, this is what the picture says:  Members get an additional Twisted Thicket gear pack, which includes Lumberjerk Costume, Troll Power, and Dryad Follower.  The Lumberjerk Costume is ONLY available during Early Access!

Yay for troll power, which I have no idea what it would do; the little dryad follower thing, which I though was a fairy; and…and…a Lumberjerk costume?  Uh…Creators…couldn’t you have picked a name that sounds a bit…um…nicer?

Like all info-pages, Twisted Thicket’s info-page has some pictures of the island.  So, here are the pictures that were on Twisted Thicket’s info-page:

Twisted Thicket Island looks…like…it…is…going…to…be…EPIC!!!!!!  And it’s worth waiting FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER for!!!!

Better hurry up and finish this post before I go completely wacko.

Anyway, like Vampire’s Curse Island, there’s a free wallpaper and a free printable poster that you can download on the info-page.

Before I go and start writing “FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER” again, I just wanted to show you something.

Twisted Thicket Island’s icon is our little fairy buddy!  And yes, I know that the correct term is a “dryad”, but this little guy will always be a fairy to me.

Now, since the post is over, I don’t see any point in trying to control myself anymore.  You may leave when ever you get tired of hearing (or is it reading) me say FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER……………
