Riddling Rumpel Challenges Poptropicans to a Fairytale Twist | Side Quest Walkthrough 🪄🏰

 

Rumpel’s Challenge was recently released as a members only side quest, that picks up where Fairytale Island left off! The side quest begins with Rumpel reappearing on Home Island’s Mainstreet, offering players the chance to uncover the King’s whereabouts. 

 

Rumpel's Challenge Side Quest

 

Thankfully for our “puny” Poptropican brains, the magic man’s gracious enough to write down t the riddles leading to the King. With a burst of his signature puff of purple smoke, Rumpel’s disappeared in thin air and we can begin the adventure.

 

Rumpel's Challenge objective

 

Examine the first riddle in your sidebar’s quest tab to get started!

 

Rumpel's 1st Riddle

 

Where gods stand…” the next destination must be on Mythology Island! Use the map to travel to Ancient Greece to search “beneath a pretender’s head.” Hmm, who do we know Mythology that might fit that description?

 

After arriving to the next island, consider the lines “here your education is fed” and “hard as stone…” The Museum of Olympus fits the riddle’s clues – the Greek gods’ and goddesses’ statues are housed inside. Enter the Museum and sure enough, you’ve found the second riddle under Zeus’ statue.

 

Rumpel's 2nd riddle

 

The next riddle offers further clues to the next destination. If you’re familiar with the islands, this one should be relatively easy! “The clock is always striking” refers to Time Tangled island! But the unknown era on Time Tangled is the harder question. Let’s check out the time device options to see where we should travel. Rumpel’s hints the next leg of the challenge is located “above my lost herd of viking” – and sure enough, the Vikings are represented on the time device’s watchface. At Rumpel’s recommendation, take a hike above the Viking herd near the cave to find the next clue! 

 

Rumpel's 3rd riddle

 

Finally, it seems we’ve come across the last riddle. Who have we met that’s notorious for his weeping and crying? The Fairytale Prince, of course! Use the map to travel to Fairytale Island and up to the crying royal on the palace’s steps. He’s overjoyed by Rumpel’s “pretty bad poem” and the prospect of finding his missing father. The Prince suspects that the room housing “golden troves” is the treasury!

 

Side by side, you and the Prince must descend into the depths of the treasury, making sure to use the levers to unlock the gates blocking your path. As you navigate the golden troves, you might notice Rumpel’s back to his usual mind games. Look closely at the statues you pass – the figures’ heads are replaced by Rumpelstiltskin’s smirking face.

 

 

of visitors touching his gold. Try to keep both you and the Prince from touching the dragon’s spoils, or the Prince will run away when the dragon wakes up.

 

On the lowest floors of the treasury, you can see the King! He’s imprisoned in a cell, protected by electrified panels. The Prince’s reunion with his father is too much for him; he can’t help but cry! Surprisingly, the young royal’s tears damage the electrified panels, overriding the system’s locking mechanism. Several cell doors swing open. That’s it! Who would’ve thought that the Prince’s vulnerability would be the very thing to save his father?!

 

Let his fragile, crybaby disposition chariot me to freedom!

 

Click on the Prince above the panels to insult and make him cry! Move the Prince around the panels until you find the right combination to release the jailed King. It seems Rumpel’s left one last riddle to aid our efforts. The walls read, “Two are shocking, four are not. In a column, or he’ll stay caught.” There are several different combinations you can use to manipulate the security system. With Rumpel’s last riddle in mind, you can make the Prince cry over both levels’ panels on the left and right sides. Alternatively, making the Prince cry over the upper and lower middle panels is just as effective. What other combinations have you found that unlock the King’s cell?

 

After the Prince’s tears force the system to malfunction, the two royals are finally reunited! But their celebration is short lived. The King warns of a rumor Rumpel delivered just before he disappeared. The Queen, the Prince’s mother, is returning to Fairytale Island. Both men simultaneously burst into tears and flee the treasury. What would make them react so poorly?!

 

Congratulations! You saved the day! Upon completing Rumpel’s Challenge, you’re rewarded with 2,000 credits and left with one final clue – Rumpel shall return.

 


 

Whew! What did you think about Rumpel’s Challenge? Did you use a different combination of broken panels to breach the security system? And why on earth would the King and Prince be terrified by the Queen’s return? Only time will tell!

 

Bonus Question: How many statues did you see Rumpel’s head temporarily replace? Mischevious should be the magic man’s middle name…

Guest Blog: Fairytale Island MBTI! ft. Golden Wolf 💛🐺

Sorry for not posting in awhile guys! I’ve just been super busy the last month.

 

Ok, let’s just start off guessing you don’t know what an MBTI is. It stands for Myer Briggs Type Indicator. It’s made up of 4 words that tell if you are introverted or extroverted, how you deal with your feelings, if you focus on the real world or if you mostly daydream about fictional things, and how you react in certain situations. The 16 personalities site explains this better than I do, so go here to take the test and gather some info about your personality type.

 

So! Without further ado, let’s go!

 

Rumpelstiltskin

 

TBH, Rumpel was a hard one to figure out. At first I thought he was ENTP (Like my favorite anime villain, Orochimaru, him and Rumpel are so much alike!), but then I thought “Wait Rumpelstiltskin is a feeler!” (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just go with the flow).

 

 Orochimaru and Rumpelstiltskin

                                    Orochimaru and Rumpelstiltskin

 

So Rumpel is an ENFP from what I think…

 

Cinder

Cinder is ESTP. She is independent, strong-willed and has a mind of her own. She hates it when people get in her way, yet she still has a caring side when others need it.

 

Red

Red is ISTP. She is serious about keeping a good profit for her job, and is very practical. Even though she seems serious, she still keeps up that happiness that seems to make the rainy days a little brighter.

 

Red from Fairytale Island

 

The Prince

IDK his real name, nor have I played the mini quest so we’ll just call him The Prince. The Prince is INFP (same as me 😁). He gets very emotional and seems like a crybaby at first but INFP’s are not always crying. Most of the time they are sunny and positive.

 

Prince from Fairytale Island

 


 

 

I have some creepy anime/Poptropica art for you guys! Here’s Ken Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul!

Also, I will be cosplaying as Kakashi Hatake from Naruto in Poptropica on Oct. 9-Oct 15.

Well, that wraps it up for this guest post. Hope you guys enjoyed! 👋

Guest Blog: Invisible Ring's Movie Mission! 🎬💍

In my last guest post, I showcased a very special Poptropican known as Perfect Sky. She was known for her skills in creating Poptropica movies, shows, and specials. If you missed my last post, don’t worry. You can look it up right here!

 

Upon closer examination of Perfect Sky’s channel, I found there was a lot of talk on wanting SOMEONE to take Perfect Sky’s place now that she is done with Poptropica moviemaking. I’ve decided that someone is gonna be ME.

 

Like some Poptropicans, I want to see more Poptropica content like what Perfect Sky made. And when you want something badly enough, you don’t wish for it to happen. You MAKE it happen.

 

...Which brings us up to the here and now. I will be making a full-length movie, and I have made an official Poptropica movie trailer for it that WON’T disappoint you. 

 

 

Once this movie of mine is complete, I will showcase it in another guest post later on. Until then, I will continue sharing monthly guest posts packed with quality content.

 

If you like my movie trailer, please let me know in the comments down below, and be sure to share the trailer with others who would like to see it, too!

 

Thank you, and I’ll be back next month!
