What do you do on the secret island on Skullduggery Island?
Once you defeat Captain Crawfish, and collect all five map pieces, you can go to the new island (Skullduggery) and dig up the buried treasure. Before you have done these two tasks, the island has no purpose. After Captain Crawfish has been chased away, the Governor will give you the treasure location and bone shovel.
(In order to beat Captain Crawfish, you will need the strongest ship, the Phoenix Warbird.)

Take it to the corn farm to the right of the bridge, where it will eat some pesky bugs. The farmer will give you the blue candle, which you can later use at the Governor's hou…se.
At Dragon Cove, the mallet is under the floating statue in the water. Jump on the head of the floating statue, and the tail will pop up with the mallet. Use it to bring fish u…p for the old fisherman by striking the giant bell gong. (Slide the fisherman to the right, near the first barrel, then use the mallet on the gong.)
Take it to the Governor's house, where its light will reveal the faded writing on the Parchment letter.
Parrot Port is the island directly right (3 o'clock position) from Fort Ridley. You do not normally buy cargoes there because nothing is relatively cheap. You can sell any sal…vage, however, and Medicine bought at Bouffant Bay (just up from there) is sold here at a premium. The "navigator" is in Petey's Pirate Pub. If you can afford her, she can increase your ship's sailing speed by 2 knots or more. There is also a cracker at upper left that is used to get the island's piece of the Treasure Map. To get the map piece :Get the cracker from Petey's Pub and go to the Trading Post where the parrot is sitting.The parrot will say "Squaawk! Jump in the sea, then come and find me." (go into the water by your ship, and swim ashore)When you return, he is on the left upper window of the Trading post. Now he will say "Squaawk! Clog the vent, then see where I went."Jump atop the ash screen on the chimney of Petey's Pub, to partly stop the smoke.Now the parrot is on a palm tree at far right, and will direct you to see its owner, a pirate atop the tall tower near the dock, saying "Squaawk! To the old tower go, and find a pirate I know."Go to see the pirate, who will ask you to retrieve his parrot. Use the cracker and the parrot will come. The pirate gives you the map piece.Once you leave the island, the pirate and parrot disappear.
The parrot is at the Trading Post when you arrive. You may want to go inside Petey's Pub and get the cracker (upper left corner) before dealing with the parrot. When the par…rot says "go in the sea", you have to go jump into the water. When you return, he is at an upper window of the Trading Post. Now he says "clog the vent", which refers to the chimney on Petey's Pub. After you stand on it, partly blocking the smoke, the parrot is at the palm tree at far right. Now he wants you to see the "pirate he knows", on the tall tower by the dock. Once you speak to the pirate, use the cracker to lure the parrot to the tower, and you receive the map piece.
Once you have several thousand doubloons, you can increase the performance of your ship by hiring one or more skilled crewmen. They can help you avoid sinking (shipwright), ca…rry more cargo (cargo master), sail faster (navigator), or fire your cannons faster (cannoneer). The locations of the crew and the bonuses you must pay to get them aboard : Shipwright (Ship-Shape at Dragon Cove) : 20,000 doubloons to hire -- slowly fixes damage without dockingCargo Master (Willard's Warehouse at Bouffant Bay) : 15,000 doubloons -- increases cargo space of any ship by 50%Navigator (Petey's Pub at Parrot Port) : 12,000 doubloons -- increases ship speedCannoneer (Cannonry atop the Pirate Outpost) : 20,000 doubloons -- increases firing rate of your cannon
Skullduggery island is the 13th Island in Poptropica and opened June 17, 2010. *This solution contains spoilers* Enter the island from the Island Map (members had Early Acce…ss May 20, 2010) and climb down to Fort Ridley, one of a few small islands scattered about in the sea. For the first part of the island, you will collect items that lead to other items and clues. Travel down Main Street to the right and cross the covered bridge. On the far side, climb down into the stream and go left to get the Doubloon from the sand.Return left to Stinky Tim's store, and use the doubloon to buy a bag of chicken feed. Also go to the upper right shelf to get the Broken Mirror.Give the feed to the boy with the chickens. He will give you a chicken.Head right again, across the bridge to the corn farm. Use the chicken to eat some of the bugs, and the farmer gives you a Blue Candle.Go far right. past the Governor's house, to the sea edge and talk to the woman there whose husband is lost at sea.Enter the Governor's house and use the Blue Candle to reveal the missing writing on the Parchment. The Governor will tell you about the Treasure Map and the need to defeat Captain Crawfish the pirate.Go back to the Fort and use the telescope at the top, where you will see a small raft. Signal the raft using the Broken Mirror, and it will dock.The beach woman's husband is aboard the raft, and is grateful to be home. He gives you his ship, which is now crewed by a cabin boy and the old sailor from the fort. THE LONG SAILING AND TRADING PART OF THE GAME now begins, in the seas between the 5 outlying islands : Dragon Cove at the upper left, Bouffant Bay, Parrot Port, Golden Harbor, and Pirate Outpost. These are all indicated on the sailing map. Sail by lifting anchor (spacebar) and using the cursor to indicate direction and speed. Dock by dropping anchor and clicking the island dock. Each movement to an island is counted as a "day" in the quest, but there is no set speed of play. As the game progresses, you buy larger ships to hold more cargo, but the hazards increase somewhat as well. Find the Map Pieces : there is one on each of the five trading islands. (*see the related question below) Earning doubloons and cargo items : initially you "salvage" these from the water, and later you buy and sell them for a profit at any of the five ports. The prices for the cargo items vary from port to port, often allowing you to "buy low and sell high". Hazards that can cost you cargo or damage the ship : Giant pink sea creatures such as a crab, octopus, or puffer fish. Whirlpools, thunderstorms, and rock shoals can cause damage. Pirate ships can attack, and you can duel them by firing any cannon you have. If you are damaged or sunk you lose some doubloons or cargo items. New Ships and Skilled Crewmen can improve your durability, speed, cargo capacity, and armament use. Buy new ships at Dragon Cove, and hire crew (relatively expensive) at each of the four ports except Parrot Port. Ships are expensive but have a small resale value. You can borrow more cash, equal to your current wealth, at the bank in Golden Harbor, and this must be repaid. The interest is only 5% per day, but compounded, so large balances should be paid off as quickly as possible without losing your working capital. If you have an overdue loan, you cannot buy a new ship. Sailing Hint -- When sailing around rocks and salvage, drop anchor to pivot the ship. GETTING THE 5 PIECES OF THE TREASURE MAPDragon Cove -- go to the water's edge with the old fisherman. Sink the floating statue to uncover a Mallet. Slide the fisherman right, past the giant Bell Gong to the first barrel. When you use the Mallet on the Gong, fish will jump from the water, allowing the old man to catch one, and he will give you the map piece.Bouffant Bay -- You can help the worker at the dock and get a clue from his wife at the residence (far right). A pirate also tells you the map piece is at "312 Hanging Fern Way", a reference to three hanging plants. At the plants, jump into the 3rd, then the 1st, then the 2nd plant to get the map piece.Parrot Port -- There is a parrot flying around who leads you on a chase. First go to Petey's Pirate Pub and get the Cracker from the upper left. Now the parrot will have you dive into the sea (he moves to another window) then block the smoking chimney* (he's in a palm tree at the far right). He tells you to contact his owner, a pirate atop the tower at far left. Once you have, you can use the Cracker to lure the parrot back to the tower, where you receive the map piece. (You may have to dunk yourself and block the chimney again to find the parrot.)Golden Harbor -- There are 5 hanging street lights, and after lighting any of them , lighting another will turn others off. Counting from the left, you need the 1st, 2nd, and 4th lights on. The way to accomplish this is to light them from right to left : the 4th, then the 2nd, then the 1st in that order. Leaving the dock and returning will reset the lights. The piece appears in a draped archway.Pirate Outpost -- Climb the giant skull cliff, jumping over the pirates to avoid being knocked back. At the top of the tall mast is a Cannon Starter kit to use on any of the 4 cannons, but only the one at lower left is important. On the way back down. push the small barrel of explosives from the mast into the water below. Position the barrel under the giant Golden Tooth of the stone skull. If you fire the cannon and hit the barrel, the blast shakes loose the Golden Tooth and reveals the map piece. Assembling all 5 pieces reveals a hidden island, called Skullduggery, at the lower center of the map. Near the game's end, you will go there to find the Buried Treasure. DEALING AND TRADING -- The best profits are made by sailing a clockwise course around the islands. Sell any salvage, and you may want to leave room for more you might pick up. Silk is bought cheaply at Dragon Cove (upper left), and sold at nearly double your cost at Bouffant Bay to the right.Medicine is bought cheaply at Bouffant Bay (upper middle) and sold at Parrot Port to the south. There is nothing cheap at Parrot Port.Grain is bought cheaply at Golden Harbor (lower right) and sold at Pirate Outpost to the left.Spices are bought cheaply at Pirate Outpost (lower left) and sold at Dragon Cove to the far north. NEW SHIPS AND CREW -- Ships are bought from the dealer at Dragon Cove, each more expensive than the previous, requiring two or more trading runs to afford the next larger model. Take out a loan at Golden Harbor to help buy more cargo. Do NOT spend so much on a ship that you haven't enough doubloons for a FULL cargo or two for your new ship size. That would make your trades much less profitable. Your raft -- free but holds only 20 total cargo items, speed 6Jimmy Rigger -- 3000 doubloons, holds 60 cargo, speed 7, has 1 cannonCarabelle -- 9000 doubloons, holds 200 cargo, speed 8, 1 cannonSea Sultan -- 30,000 doubloons, holds 600 cargo, speed 9, 2 cannonThe Koi -- 90,000 doubloons, holds 1800 cargo, speed 12, 3 cannonSteaming Fury -- 300,000 doubloons, holds 5000 cargo, speed 12, 4 cannonPhoenix Warbird -- 1,000,000 doubloons, holds 6000 cargo, speed 13, 5 cannon Crew positions : Shipwright (Dragon Cove) : 20,000 doubloons to hire, slowly fixes damage without dockingCargo Master (Bouffant Bay) : 15,000 doubloons, increases cargo space of any ship by 50%Navigator (Parrot Port) : 12,000 doubloons, increases ship speedCannoneer (Pirate Outpost) : 20,000 doubloons, increases firing rate of your cannon BATTLING PIRATES (and eventually Captain Crawfish) Anytime you face damage from a hazard or attack, the green "health bar" appears on the travel view. One will also appear for enemy ships or creatures. Aiming and hitting enemy ships, especially those with more cannon, can be fun but a losing proposition. They are hard to hit because shots take awhile to arrive at the target. Oddly enough, this also lets you "outrun" or swerve to avoid cannon balls. Only when you have a larger ship than your opponent can you regularly succeed. Smaller ships will tend to "gang up" on you, as well. You can salvage items from any destroyed ships or sea creatures. If you are sunk, you lose part of your doubloons (10%) and cargo (10% to 13%) and start sailing again from your previous dock. WIN THE GAME -- After from 25 to 100 days of trading, you will have acquired the most expensive ship, the Phoenix Warbird. This ship is a match for the dread Captain Crawfish. Sail to the Skullduggery sea to confront him. When he is apparently sunk, return to the Governor at Fort Ridley. You will receive a special card with the location of the Buried Treasure on Skullduggery Island, and a Bone Shovel to dig it up. When you finish, you are surprised by Captain Crawfish and his crew, who apparently survived the battle and are going to take the treasure from you. Fortunately, your valiant crew sails to your rescue, sinking the pirate ship and marooning Captain Crawfish. (He will never be seen again. Or will he??) Return the treasure to Fort Ridley and receive the Island Medallion! * Save Your Game Often! * Some users have lost a character and ship temporarily until rebooting the browser. Users have reported losing up to 45 days of playing time even with the browser open! Notes : 1) Having an overdue loan will prevent you from buying a new ship. 2) After initial release, a moving ash cover was added to the chimney of Petey's Parrot Pub, so that you only need stand on it to block the smoke. This was likely a child safety concern.
His ship is sailing around the islands, mostly between Golden Harbor and the Pirate Outpost along the bottom of the sea map. Staying in that area too long will usually bring h…im out. When the small island appears, he is more likely to attack just left of there.
The broken mirror is on the top right shelf in Stinky Tim's General Store. The clerk will let you have it for free.
Golden Harbor (an Arabic-themed island) is southeast of Fort Ridley (in the lower right position). Its bank will loan you doubloons to buy larger cargos but it charges interes…t. Only Grain is bought cheaply there.
You get your first ship (a raft) at Fort Ridley when you provide a clue to the Governor. Go past the covered bridge, then down to the river. Pick up a doubloon from the left… side. Buy the chicken feed at the General Store, and give it to the boy with the chickens, who will give you one. Take the chicken to the farmer at the right of the bridge, who will give you a blue candle, which can read the writing on the faded parchment in the Governor's house. Now you can use the broken mirror (upper right shelf of the General Store) to signal a ship from the fort's telescope. (Until you read the parchment, the only ship in the telescope is a pirate ship.) Save up your doubloons and you can buy a better ship from the Ship Shape shipbuilders at Dragon Cove island. The smallest ship is 3000 doubloons, and you can trade up from there.
The telescope and broken mirror are used exactly ONCE on Skullduggery island. If you speak to the woman at the far right of the island, she will tell you her husband was lost …at sea. (You do not have to speak to her, only read the parchment at the Governor's house.) Get the broken mirror from the upper right shelf of the General Store, and look through the telescope. Until you read the parchment (with the Blue Candle), the only ship you see is a pirate. But now you will see a raft, which you can signal with the mirror. This will guide him to the Fort Ridley dock, where he will give you his ship. (see related question)
Skullduggery island was the 13th Poptropica island, released on June 17, 2010. Steamworks Island will be the 14th island in Poptropica, due on September 9, 2010. (the perio…d between the two is exactly 12 weeks) (see the related link)
The larger ships you can buy have cannon to battle the island's various pirates and sea creatures. Unless you have a lot of practice aiming and shooting, you should only engag…e ships much smaller than your own. Getting sunk can reduce your wealth and increase the time it takes to get the larger ships and skilled crew.
Collect salvage from the sea and trade among the islands to accumulate your wealth, and avoid getting sunk. (There is mostly salvage between Parrot Port and Golden Harbor and …above Dragon's Cove) Once you get cannons, (preferrably 2) you can go and sink the sea creatures at the top of Dragon's Cove. When they sink, you can salvage a lot of cargo and doubloons. Once you get larger ships, you can collect more salvage, because the cargo holds are larger. (For example, the Phoenix Warbird collects tens and thousands of doubloons every time you collect salvage.) Sea Monsters and Pirate Ships Sinking a Sea Creature or Pirate Ship will release a LARGE amount of salvage, easily filling a medium-sized ship. The sea creatures tend to stay around Dragon Cove and the Pirates near the Pirate Outpost. If you have a decent fighting ship (2 cannon or more), hang around the pirate outpost. There are almost ALWAYS ships there that are weaker than you. As soon as you start fighting a ship, head for the rocks (near Golden Harbor). You can dodge the rocks and make the other ship ram into them. As soon as they sink, you get the cargo. If you'd rather an enemy that doesn't shoot back, the sea creatures (puffer fish, giant crab, and octopus) are nearly as lucrative. Draw them out above Dragon Cove. Occasionally you may get more than one, or even the occasional pirate ship.
On Skullduggery Island, the object is to trade among the 5 outlying islands, amassing a fortune through salvaging, buying, and selling the four commodities (Grain, Spice, Medi…cine, and Silk). With more wealth, you can buy a larger ship to battle pirates and sea monsters in the open seas, and you can hire crew members to improve your ship's performance. Once you have the most powerful ship, you can battle Captain Crawfish and seek the Buried Treasure on a hidden island. *The small hidden island revealed on the Treasure Map is also called "Skullduggery". You reveal it by joining the five pieces of the map. You go there after defeating Captain Crawfish and getting the Treasure location and the shovel from the Governor. (see related question for details)
Golden Harbor To get the Treasure Map piece at Golden Harbor, you have to click on the street lamps (lanterns) so that the 1st, 2nd and 4th lanterns (counting from t…he left) remain on. The lanterns should be turned on from right to left : 4th, 2nd, 1st. The map piece will appear in the draped archway near the 3rd lantern.
