Baron's Airship, Fan Art Features, Fanfiction

Ack! The Baron Goes Missing 🙈

Brace yourselves for a Baron airship landing, Poptropicans! But…

Right away, you may notice something’s not right — the Baron is nowhere to be seen! Not at the entrance calling you off the dusty rock, nor swinging at their usual spot on the flight deck. What’s up?

Head inside the Cabin of Curiosities and you’ll find treasures to pick up, including two free costumes: The Hair by Prickly Tooth, which is the latest design contest winner (no reel of submissions shared this time though), and the Banana over on the right! 🍌

You can also bring home some familiar wares: the Baron and Ack Painting (300 credits), Ack Plushie (200), Ack’s Litter Box (5), Wooden Mug (10), Chest of Scrolls (100) — lifted from the Baron’s headquarters, now curiously locked. Is the legendary sky pirate quarantining inside?

Baron backers may remember their last visit when the Baron was twitching suspiciously and offering Rumpelstiltskin icons for sale. This time, their first mate Ack has taken over the throne! Talking to the monkey doesn’t offer any helpful hints, as all he can say is “Ack,” but the doodles he’s waving of his boss and the magic man may be a clue. Was the Baron kidnapped by Rumpel, or are they in cahoots? Hmmm…


In other news, guest writer Dizzy Feather is back on the Pop Creators’ Blog with part two of her fanfic story, Poptropican Heroes. (You can read part one here!)

I’m going to be honest, it’s a really tricky situation…

I do think some of them can be helped, it’s just a matter of who.

Pop Puzzles: What’s Missing? 🧐

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy FeatherEnjoy!

Falling to Pieces: Let’s see if we can rig this guy back together.

Hello everyone, Dizzy Feather here, and I’m going to introduce to you a little puzzle game called “What’s missing?”

I’ll show you screenshots from Poptropica with a detail covered up, and your job is to guess what the missing piece is. Leave your guesses in the comments of this post, and in about a week I’ll share the answers and shout out those who got them all correct! A few rules before we start:

  • No cheating! Don’t go in-game to the area shown to find the answers, and don’t copy someone else’s answers (best not to look before sharing yours). Not only would that be cheating others, but you’ll be taking the fun away from yourself!
  • Give as many details as you can. Some of the hidden objects might be obvious, but tell me what’s special about them. 
  • Have fun! It’s just a game. Don’t pressure yourself to get them all.

Now that we’ve got that down, let’s start with the pilot round:

So what’s missing? Share your guesses in the comments below, and be sure to check back next week to see how many you got right!


Hope you enjoyed this guest post by Dizzy Feather. If you did, you might also enjoy her clubhouse tour, or a similar puzzle series from the PHB, Stolen Snapshots, featuring scenes from classic islands.

The Poptropica Help Blog welcomes interesting Poptropica insights from anyone in the Poptropica community with thoughts to share. Interested in writing for the PHB? We’d love to hear from you!

Fanfic: The Witch’s Heart, Part 2/6 🧙‍♀️

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by HeartOfEnder. Enjoy!

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening everyone! Whatever time it may be, I hope you had a wonderful day, and if you just woke up, I hope that you’ll have a wonderful day! And it will be, because I, HeartofEnder, is back with the second part of The Witch’s Heart

We left off from part one with the white egg minutes, if not seconds, away from hatching. Without further ado, let’s catch up with our heroes!

Eggscellent: You’re a shell of your former self.

SNOW WHITE, CINDER, and RED are staring at the egg, now in a homemade nest, watching the cracks appear one by one. It is quite early in the morning, when most early birds are starting to wake up and catch worms. 

ALOUETTE arrives looking very tired, and her hair looks like a bird just used it as a nest.

SNOW WHITE:

Um, Alouette? Your hair is—

ALOUETTE: 

Oh yea, one second.

With a swish of her wand, ALOUETTE’S hair magically brushes itself, returning to the usual long braid she always has her hair in.

ALOUETTE:

I was going to ask why you decided to wake me up so early in the morning, but I guess my answer is (points to the egg) right here. 

For the next 30 minutes or so, our heroes watch the egg carefully. Finally, the last crack appears and out emerges a small white baby dragon.

ALOUETTE:

(excited) Oh my gosh you’re the cutest thing to ever walk on this island! Except Gwen’s pet owl Merlin, I guess. Actually, he doesn’t count because he flies, therefore has never walked on this island. Still, you’re cuter than Merlin! Look at those big eyes! Awww who’s a good dragon?

CINDER:

(sighs) It hasn’t even been a minute and Alouette has already fallen in love with it. 

ALOUETTE picks up the white dragon and watches it chew the ends of her braid. 

SNOW WHITE: 

At least it likes you back. 

RED:

It’s like a living, four legged, cute little Pearl!

The white dragon stares at Red, responding to the word ‘Pearl’. 

BABY DRAGON: 

Rawr?

RED:

I think I accidentally gave them a name. There goes all the other name ideas I had. 

ALOUETTE: 

Well, Pearl is a cute name, so I guess it works. I can’t wait to show this to my mother! I know she really likes her black cats, and I have suddenly become the owner of a white dragon, so who knows how this will work out.

As if on cue, a black cat suddenly appears from the bushes, holding a small note in her mouth. ALOUETTE picks the note up and reads it out loud.

ALOUETTE: 

Breakfast is ready, don’t know why you left, hurry home before the toast becomes cold as ice, Sabrina. 

RED: 

How does toast become that cold? Magic?

ALOUETTE: 

There’s no questioning a witch’s metaphors, I guess. Wish me luck!

ALOUETTE waves goodbye to her friends before following the black cat back to her house. PEARL the dragon curiously looks around as they enter the dark forest and arrive back at the tower. Her mother is waiting in the living room.

SABRINA: 

Oh hey, I was about to freeze your toast just to show you I wasn’t kidding about—

SABRINA notices the little white creature in her daughter’s hands and stares at it, very concerned. 

ALOUETTE:

You’re gonna tell me we can’t keep him as a pet? 

SABRINA: 

No, you can keep the baby dragon, but it’s something else I’m concerned about.

SABRINA walks towards the window and glances as if she was looking out for something.

SABRINA:

Dragons are very, very protective of their young. They don’t care how you obtained the baby, or if you helped keep them safe, they will show no mercy to claim it back. I fear with that little dragon in your hands—

In the distance, we hear a roar. Over the dark forest, a large shadow flies overhead. Through the massive trees, we see a flash of white scales.

SABRINA:

As I was saying, we better return the baby dragon to its mother before that giant dragon burns down this entire island. We have no time to waste.

TO BE CONTINUED…

What exactly does the giant dragon want from the citizens of Fairytale Island? You’ll have to wait until the next part. I’ll see you guys later!
