Poptropica Lexicon


“I really want to Costumize that outfit from the NPC in that ad that was on SUIs only. Can a glitcher make an ASG for it and post it on the PHC?”

  1. Third comment. But anyway, that’s a very useful list of lexes for new Poptropicans, to the game or the PHB – and Poptropicans who don’t know the general ideology of Poptropican things outside of the actual game. 😉

  2. Or should I say, new Poptropicans to the game and the community, since the PHB isn’t the only situate within the community. 😛

What's popping, Poptropicans?
