The Dragon of Dangers

Thank you Grumpy Wolf for all the updates and news below.

Roooaarrrrrrrr.

What was that? “That, little knight, was the sound of the great metallic creature, the Dragon of Dangers,” a mysterious voice echoed in the misty red background of what appeared to be the dragon’s lair. The red knight jumped in surprise, and found himself face-to-face with a large, scary-looking green-and-brown dragon made of metal. Its glowing red eyes seemed to glare at him. “Yikes!” The knight gulped, and, in great fear, fainted to the ground.

Will you have the courage to face strong opponents on Astro-Knights Island? Here’s a piece of advice: Don’t be like the little red knight, but instead use your logic to bypass even the scariest monsters.

Does that knight look familiar to you? Yep, it was shown in PHB Sneak Peek #3: The New Knights of Poptropica. And that’s a good example of why PHB Sneak Peeks are real! 😀

Looks like there’s another new kid on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog: Hazmat Hermit, who first appeared on March 26, 2009 to show us the sneak peek shown above. He is an NPC (non-player character) at the County Prison of Main Street, Super Power Island. If you want to visit him, he’s the one standing on top of the meteor and wearing the Hazmat suit. This is what the name “Hazmat Hermit” means:

Hazmat: an abbreviation for ‘hazardous material’
Hermit: a person who has withdrawn to a solitary place; any person living in seclusion
Taken from Dictionary.com

An isolated being wearing dangerous clothing?! Maybe we should keep away from him, then…
