Fierce Sky's Poptropica Blog

A Poptropica blog for the Poptropicans

An Important Announcement from Fierce Sky

Hello guys,

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been very inactive on both this blog and the Poptropican Peoples Blog lately. I am done with my midterms now, but I have much more to worry about now. Between family issues, high school placement, and many other things, I don’t see how I can continue to actively post on this blog anymore. However, I refuse to abandon this blog; we’ve come so far in just a few months, that I don’t want to let a great opportunity like this one pass by. I have faith in this blog and its readers. I never thought it would ever have an actual reader base, or more than 1,000 hits at all. We’re already well past 3,000 hits, and I know that we’ll have many more in the future. I enjoy working on this blog very much, although when I have to choose between school/family and this blog, I must go with the former. Currently, I have not decided if I want to continue making this blog a solo act, or possibly add more authors in the future. One of my main goals for this blog was to run an excellent one-man Poptropica blog, although I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep that going for much longer.

With all that said, I have decided that I must make an indefinite leave to Fierce Sky’s Poptropica Help Blog, and posting on the Poptropican Peoples Blog. Notice the word indefinite. I am not completely leaving. All I am doing right now is putting the blogs on hold, until I feel I can constantly post again, and when I can feel comfortable working on here while having time for other activities. In case you aren’t aware, despite how it may look, running a blog such as this one can be very time consuming to work on. You may think that writing a 500-letter blog only a few times a week may not take too long to work on, but it is much more time consuming than it looks.

Please excuse my current absence, and I hope to come back to this blog very soon.

Thank you for understanding,

-Fierce Sky

2 days left in Header Contest!

That’s right, folks; there’s only today and tomorrow to finish up your headers for Fierce Sky’s first ever header contest! If you are skilled at creating graphics or headers, make sure that you make one for this blog, and email it to fiercesky@yahoo.com by January 1st! If you want to participate in this contest and haven’t already, hurry up! There’s only 2 days to do it!

Sorry about the lack of news lately; there really hasn’t been much to report on. I already posted a walkthrough to Counterfeit Island, so if you need help with that, get over there, and you’ll have no problem finishing Counterfeit Island. If you didn’t get an Early Access code yet, do yourself a favor and wait until January 4th, the day of release for Counterfeit, to look at that. It’s a great island, and I’d hate to see that it’s my fault that you already know its plot.

So, I think that just about wraps it up for now, so, until next time,

Counterfeit Island Updates Thread

Hello Poptropicans,

So, I’ve managed to get my hands on a Counterfeit Island Early Access Pass, so that means I’m going through the island. I’ll post some screenshots, and will work on a walkthrough as I progress through it. I will be constantly editing this thread, so constantly check it for new stuff. By the way, all the times I mention are in the EST time zone. If you are in Pacific time, add 3 hours, Mountain time, add 2, and Central, add 1. Google up your time zone if you’re not sure about it.

Exterior of the Museum in Counterfeit Island

That picture above is the alternate account I am using for this island, Grumpy Panda. Panda is in front of the museum next to the police chief, at the beginning of Counterfeit Island.

Fierce Sky Was Here

Upon being denied any access to the museum, I had some fun with a paint tool in the city. Fierce Sky was here 🙂

Mime creeps me out.

This mime lady’s making creepy gestures at me downtown. I’m a little scared, despite my glued-on smile.

12/23/09, 9:13 pm

Creepy clown

AAH, CLOWN! This clown is standing on the roof of a place called “Bobo’s Clown Store”. If this were real life, I’d never go in a clown store at all, let alone one with a clown standing on the roof of it…

A French Tour Guide

A French Tour Guide

Remember that mysterious Counterfeit Island character who nobody could figure out what role she played? Turns out she isn’t a worker or exchange student. She’s a French tour guide, offering a tour of the city. Too bad all the tickets are sold out.

12/23/09, 9:56 pm

I’ve posted a walkthrough of the island for all your viewing pleasure. To get to it, you can either click the link at the top of this page, or click here.

I might post a few more screens, but I’d really like to actually play it for myself. It’s kind of hard to do that with the posting of the pictures and walkthrough.

Counterfeit Island’s Plot (Somewhat) REVEALED!

So, today, we received our first actual information on Counterfeit Island, besides gatekeepers, cottages, some paintings, scooters, guards, and a Jazz Cafe. Yes, actual plot information! Here’s the screen:

 

counterfeitplot1

 

So yes, the plot does involve stolen artwork, and someone’s trying to steal it. Your role is to stop whoever’s stealing the paintings from, well, stealing the paintings. I’m assuming the guy at the bottom-right is the person stealing the paintings. Does he work with Master Mime?

Now, I really hate to say this, but this island may make me a little happy, as it’s the first real island since Astro-Knights, which was back in June. But, I am rather disappointed by this island. It just doesn’t look that exciting to me. I don’t find what can be that exciting about stopping some evil guy from stealing some paintings from a museum. If you want me to be impressed with this island, show me some footage that might get me a bit more excited. Or, put out Reality TV Island already. I cared about that way more than Big Nate or Astro-Knights. Many people would like to have Reality TV Island out already, and you’ve spent plenty of time on it already anyway. Please, Poptropica. Revive the island.

 

So, that’ll do it for today. Until next time,

A Few Reminders From Fierce Sky

So, there hasn’t been much Poptropica news recently, so I figured I could use this break to remind all you viewers of a few things you might be interested in.

First off, I put up a poll earlier this month on the site asking what you’d like to see happen on here. That poll has 42 and counting votes already, but I’d like to see at least 100 by the end of December. I really appreciate your input, and would still like to know more of what to emphasize on the blog. So, if you haven’t already, please vote on this poll soon! I reposted it below. (Also, I would like to see a bit more support for talking a bit about other games besides Poptropica, as I know that the only person who has voted for it is Smockers from the PHB.)

 

 

Second off, the 1st ever Fierce Sky’s Poptropica Blog Header Contest is ending in a month. What does this mean? Work, slaves, work! It’s time to work on the headers! If you haven’t started working on your header already, now would be a good time to start. I would like much effort put on these headers, as they are going at the top of my blog, so they have to be extra nice. Also, as a little side note: some of the entries I’ve already received have not exactly been what I wanted. I’ve received more than one entry with people taking the requirements, and extending on them. Yes, some people may have put my avatar in a fairly nice logo, and then felt the need to add their own avatar to the header, possibly even with an ad along with it. Please keep in mind that if your header contains things such as advertisements or attempting to make your own being on there, IT WILL NOT WIN THE CONTEST! Think about it: if you were making a blog and a header, would you add a person’s head who has no administration on the blog whatsoever to the header? Yeah, I didn’t think so. If you are making a header (which you better be doing!) please follow the rules, and do not take advantages of your privileges in this contest.

 

Thanks for reading!

Frequent Posting Once Again!

Hey Poptropicans,

As you may remember, I haven’t said anything since May, which was, ironically, the post when I said I’d be posting again. Fortunately, I have some free time once again, and hope to make this the great Poptropica blog it was destined to be. First, I need some help, from you viewers. Leave a comment introducing yourself, and what you’d like to see in a Poptropica blog. There are no stupid answers, so I welcome any responses. I want this to not be my Poptropica blog, but to be YOURS. YOU are the viewers, YOU should get to decide what you view! Power to the Poptropicans! Fire your comments away!

Thanks for all your support,

-Fierce Sky 😉

This blog is NOT dead!

Hello Poptropicans,

I am back! I have not abandoned this blog, and will hopefully revive it with ALL the Poptropica stuff you need! Astro-Knights is coming soon, so I’ll post updates and speculation about it. You can help me out by telling others about this site, and by commenting on my posts with suggestions.

See you all soon!

A Brief Message from Fierce Sky

Hello, my fellow Poptropicans,

I am extremely sorry for the lack of posting for these past two months. I know that I have a lot to explain to you guys.

First of all, I’d like to thank the (at the time) 416 people that have visited this site, including the 316 who came during my abandonment period. I thank you for your continuous support for this Poptropica blog.

Now, I know that many of you have been wondering what has happened to me during this long period, from 2008 to 2009 (Happy New Year!) Firstly, the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.  (If you do not get this reference, Google up Mark Twain or Steve Jobs saying this quote.) I am still around, and still very much alive. I will not say that I am permanantly retiring this blog. I may eventually retire it, but not right now. If you have seen many other blogs here on WordPress, you may notice that many bloggers have quit for one main reason: they see no real benefit of blogging for free. There is no advertising on WordPress, so bloggers are not paid at all. I, like so many of you, have a life outside of Poptropica, blogging, and online, in general. I go to school, like  all of you. I have homework, just like all of you. I am have a life, just like all of you. Blogging is not my life. I have a life besides blogging. Constant bloggers dedicate all of their life to blogging for the general public. I find blogging to be a constant use of my time. I do not believe that it is a waste, I just see no real point of doing it. When I first created this blog, I did not envision the huge sacrifices that would come with it. Nothing in life is free. You always have to pay with something. In WordPress’s case, you pay with your own time. I do not have much time to be blogging. I am not quitting, I just may not post very often. Every once in a while, I may put up a new post on here. I will not be a constant blogger here, like so many others. I salute those, including Scary Tomato, his crew, Watex, Mimo777, and so many others, for using up their own time, just for the benefit of the general public. They get no benefit from blogging (except maybe Mimo, because he has ads on his site.) I apologize to those of you that I have disappointed with this post. I did not want to leave this blog abandoned, with no formal message from me. I repeat, this is NOT a quitting message, only a warning message that I will not regularly post on this blog any longer, unless I change my mind.

I thank you for reading this long message, and I welcome your comments as well.

Thank you for all of your support.

100 Hits?!?! Already?!?!

Wow. That’s all I can say.

 

I never thought that this would happen this soon.

 

I created this blog on Thursday,  December 11th. It hasn’t even been 5 days, and we have 100 hits already. Wow.

 

I noticed in my blog stats that most of you discovered this blog through searching for Nabooti. I know that I havn’t been of that much help for Nabooti Island yet, but I’m working on an awesome guide. If you have any quick questions, just comment on this post. I respond pretty quickly, so you won’t have to wait for long for answers. I finished the island on the day it came out, so I can answer any questions that you have.

 

Again, thank you all for your (early) support of Fierce Sky’s Poptropica Help Blog! Hey, why don’t we set some goals? Let’s try to get 200 hits by Monday! You can help reach the goal by visiting us here again, or telling people about this new blog.

 

Until next time, (when we have EVEN MORE HITS!)
