Tribes of Poptropica
Since Poptropolis Games, you've been able to associate yourself with any of 8 "tribes." They are called Flying Squid, Seraphim, Black Flags, Nightcrawlers, Nanobots, Yellowjackets, Pathfinders, and Wildfire. Outside of that island (and even inside it) they have little significance. But members of a tribe can get together in a common room exclusive to that tribe! Tribes can also be changed at will. Estimates vary, but as of May 2012, Wildfire is the most popular tribe (some say this estimate holds all the way to November 2013). Click the images below to learn more about each tribe's name and characteristics.
Wildfire is the most distinguished tribe of Poptropica:
- Being the most popular tribe (as of May 2012 [source], and as of November 2013 [rumored, see below]). They comprise about 45% of Poptropicans.
- Making the most points in the race to raise Poptropolis Games [source], and getting a statue on Main Street for it. Some complain that this is because the tribe's membership is overwhelmingly high.
The Nanobots are distinguished for two reasons:
- Having the best overall scores on Poptropolis Games [source].
- Having the most awesome common room . You can time 4 separately-controlled instruments by clicking on a timeline. You can adjust the tempo at which these notes are played, and make music!
Tribal Common Rooms
The tribal common rooms are among the fanciest and most fun in all of Poptropica. Most are interactive and feature tons of detail themed to whichever tribe's room it is. Here are high-res screenshots of each room:
Normally you're restricted to your own tribe's common room, but there is a hack that cirvumvents this. You can visit a tribe's common room without actually joining that tribe. To do this, log in to Poptropica and then go to this page (DO NOT LOG OUT). Select a tribe room from the dropdown to the right and you'll be sent there! This hack is not very stable and may not work on some computer configurations.
