Greetings, adventures! Yes, as teased in our previous post, the Baron’s airship just docked on Home Island – ahead of schedule, I might add. Players were concerned about the Baron’s well-being after she twitched with excitement for a Rumpelstiltskin-inspired collection then suddenly disappeared.
These strange events finally culminated into the Baron’s grand return. However, she now bears a striking resemblance to Rumpelstiltskin himself! I guess Rumpel couldn’t keep up the charade much longer. Baronstiltskin invites us little adventures to climb aboard
her his airship. Let’s take up another challenge and see what awaits us this spooky season!
The airship is mostly the same as usual except for a couple of key differences. The sky is purple and sparkly, similar to the appearance of Rumpel’s magic. Baronstiltskin stands where the Baron once stood, and Ack has been Rumpel-fied as well!
The Cabin of Curiosities is full of surprises this month. Let’s ease ourselves in by checking out the winning costumes: Candy Girl and Jester 🍭🤡! We currently don’t know who designed these costumes, but we’ll update this post once the winners are revealed.
Moving to the right, we see Amelia dangling from the ceiling while Baronstiltskin is eating grapes served by Rumpel-fied Ack. The three are surrounded by a pumpkin couch, candy bags, a jack-o’-lantern lamp, a black cat clock, and a cemetery painting. Despite being an aviator-apprehending antagonist, Rumpel offers all of these Halloween furnishings for the low price of 10 credits each.
Rumpelstiltskin reveals that he possessed the Baron and gave Ack an illusionary makeover. As for why he’s doing this, he alludes to how he became trapped on Fairytale Island then says that he is inviting the Baron’s mother over for tea.
Rumpelstiltskin confirms that the Red Baron has ties to Fairytale Island’s royal family, as shown in new dialogue options presented after completing the Baron’s Crusade quest (Thanks to Dizzy Feather for the screenshots!). Accounts from Rumpel and Fairytale’s prince paint the Baron’s mother, the Red Queen, as a destructive woman obsessed with cats and conquering. Why did the queen trap Rumpelstiltskin in the first place, and how can we fix this mess?
It makes you wonder if all of this was in Fairytale’s original pitch for the Create Your Dream Island contest. The Creators mentioned that the pitch had a full storyline and intrigue, two things that were admittedly missing when Fairytale Island first released. The sheer amount of quests, clues, and cameos relating to Fairytale Island, Rumpelstiltskin, Amelia, and the Baron are definitely leading up to something big.
I predict that we’ll see a new quest that will tie all of these storylines together. It’s hard to believe that it took almost two years to wrap up Fairytale Island’s story, which is bizarre to say the least. What do you make of all of this? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
