Red October is in full swing on Home Island! 🚨

Sometime during the night, Rumpel has fled the Airship and a new force has taken his place. Brace yourselves, Poptropicans. We’re finally in the presence of… The Red Queen! 👑

 

Red October's Airship - Red Queen's Request

 

The Red Queen of Fairy Tale Island, conqueror of 7 systems and mother to the Baron, has finally made her first appearance! Royal guards in tow, the infamous queen’s return to Home Island comes with one mission in mind – to slay the beastly captor that’s kidnapped the Baron. 

 

There’s much to be learned from the new royal. Word of advice: make haste to the Airship to speak with the Red Queen! She isn’t in the mood for dilly-dallying.

Despite the chaos, the Cabin of Curiosities has still gotten its monthly restock. As promised, all players can now purchase this year’s set of Halloween costumes for FREE! Candle Cat, Homemade, Pumpkin Magic, Zombie Redcoat, Flowy Man, and Jellyfish await! Along with the rest of October’s treasures, two Jack-O-Lanterns (50 credits each) and a Rumpel-ized Baron Plushie (200 credits) are also up for grabs. 🎃

September's Eerie Airship and Rumpel's Reveal: Now Open! 🏴‍☠️

Better late than never – September’s Baron has finally arrived, safe and well! However, the same cannot be said for the Baron… After going missing in action last month, this month’s Baron is Rumpel-fied, but back at the vessel’s helm nonetheless. Climb aboard the flying vessel, little adventurers. There’s lotsa loot to plunder! 🎉

 

As usual, the Airship arrival signals the delivery of a free player-designed costume. To make up for the delay in this month’s Airship, the Baron has recreated TWO player-made costumes! Without further ado, the winners of August’s costume contest are…

 

September's free winning costumes: Candy Girl by Fast Leopard and Jester by Blue Bones

 

Candy Girl by Fast Leopard and Jester by Blue Bones! 🍭🤡

 

All players can nab the two FREE costumes from the Airship’s Cabin of Curiosities for a limited time. Put your sweet tooth front and center – channel your inner-cotton candy queen with Candy Girl, before clownin’ around with the Jester’s blue and yellow clown ensemble, complete with a halfsie skull mask and matching mini jester accessory. Congratulations, Fast Leopard and Blue Bones! 👏

 

As for the rest of the Halloween tricks and treats on board, all players can scoop up the dirt-cheap Halloween gear! It’s a steal. Redecorate your clubhouse with the Pumpkin Couch (10 credits), Trick or Treat Bag (10 credits), Pumpkin Chair (10 credits), Cat Clock (10 credits), and Haunted Painting (10 credits) for only 50 credits!

 

September Cabin of Curiosities Halloween items

 

After securing September’s special haul, don’t forget to chat up the Baron Rumpel! He’s well past keeping his scheme a secret. Now that his plans have escalated, Rumpel’s keen on bragging about the sky pirate’s disappearance and his revenge against the Red Queen – the Baron’s fabled mother…

Pop tip: Descend to the Baron’s quarters from the Cabin of Curiosities, where Rumpel’s eager to spill the beans to players that have braved The Baron’s Crusade mini quest! 👀

 

Is it possible more Poptropica lore will be here sooner rather than later? Maybe so, little adventurers. 😉 Until then, hurry to the Baron’s Airship and claim your freebies and basically-free Halloween décor! Time’s-a-tickin’, Poptropicans! What do you think of this month’s Airship edition? Share your fave Cabin items in the comments – we want to know! ✨

August's Cabin of Curiosities: 2 Free Costumes and Unsettling Inventory 🤭

Although the Airship has arrived Baron-less, the sky pirate’s Cabin of Curiosities is suspiciously well stocked and in order. Has Ack been holding down the fort? Whatever the case, there’s new discoveries to be made in the Airship’s popup shop! 🥳

 

First up: August’s free costume and the winner of last month’s costume contest. As always, choosing only one costume is a ridiculously tough decision. Thank you to everyone who participated in July’s contest round! August’s installment is set to begin tomorrow – keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming announcement and updated details. 

 

Now, without further ado, this month’s winning costume is… THE HAIR by Prickly Tooth! 🌵🦷

 

The Hair Costume by Prickly ToothAugust's Free Costume Aboard the Airship

 

Add “The Hair” to your wardrobes (for FREE) to start customizing the ‘fit’s floral aura, silky tresses, white top, and brown bottoms. Massive props to Prickly Tooth for designing such a flowy, flowery costume! Well done!

 

August's Cabin of Curiosities

 

On the opposite end of the Cabin of Curiosities, all players can scoop up another free outfit – The Banana costume – complete with a banana peel, yellow shades, and sword. Like last month’s Cabin haul, August’s inventory highlights another character: The Baron! Despite the sky pirate’s absence, the Baron (and their trusty sidekick, Ack) are the main inspirations for the clubhouse collection.

 

Browse the Baron and Ack Painting (300 credits), Ack Plushie (200 credits), Ack’s Litter Box (5 credits), Wooden Mug (10 credits), Chest of Scrolls (100 credits)? Perhaps they seem familiar? Where have we seen these items before? 🤔

 

Remember, the Airship and its Cabin contents are only available for a limited time! Be sure to stop by the floating vessel ASAP to secure this month’s 2 free costumes and the Baron and Ack’s clubhouse collectables. Don’t let the captain’s absence fool you – the Airship waits for no one!

 

What are your first impressions of August’s Cabin of Curiosities haul? How weird is the Airship without the Baron?! Does anyone else feel the difference? Let us know! 👀

Something’s Terribly, Terribly Wrong on the Airship

Well, Poptropicans, there’s good news and bad news. How ‘bout we start with the good news? 

 

August's Airship Arrival

 

As usual, the Airship’s made its monthly return to Home Island! The ship seems to be in working order, the Cabin of Curiosities is fully stocked, and a new free costume is available to all players. But more on that later! 

 

As for the bad news… you’re going to want to sit down for this. 🪑

 

August's Airship Flight Deck

 

The Baron is NOWHERE to be found. The sky pirate’s missing in action, vanished without a trace. Never before has the Airship been seen without its trusty captain at the helm. Even Ack, first mate and the Baron’s best friend, was left behind! Maybe you can make sense of what he’s saying.

 

August's Cabin of Curioisites

 

Whatever’s going on, this is an all-hands on deck situation. Climb aboard and take a look around, mates!

 

What do you think happened to the Baron? When will things return to normal? Share your theories with everyone in the comments section! 👇
