Check out those fashions in the Clothes shop, and get excited because on January 22nd, backyards are coming to Club Penguin!To read the first few parts of "Secrets Of The Wilderness" click here!

Club Penguin Times Issue #372

The latest issue of Club Penguin's newspaper is out now! It's the first one written by Aunt Arctic after the blackout! This is very interesting, as now we all know her secret. It's hard to tell that the writing is actually done on a typewriter. You can obviously see why other penguins sometimes post on the newspaper as Aunt Arctic can be very busy! So, here's the news...

Great jokes! But the news was just about everything going back to normal! Looks like the public penguins know alot about Herbert and the EPF now. They even know two of our agents, but they don't know about me, do they? 

After The Blackout

After the blackout, things turned back to normal. Buildings were upgraded and everybody sat back and relaxed. But what happened to the EPF? The building was destroyed badly by Herbert and is missing a few bricks here and there, so let's take a look down at the agent lobby (a.k.a the Everyday Phoning Facility)
 ...It's badly broken, yet the underground base still remains. However, the field-ops station has been destroyed (mostly because Club Penguin was sick of making them every week) and the tube transportation device was also destroyed (so we would never have any memories of the PSA again)
However, if you click the screen a penguin's face will appear. She says that the road ahead is long, but the epf will rise again. You'd never guess who she was. It was Aunt Arctic!

Penguin Style Catalog ~ December 2012

It's the last Penguin Style Catalog of the year! It's also Christmas, so let's get some fashions going! To the gift shop, or should I say clothes shop?
 ...First of all, grab a background so you look like you're enjoying yourself at a strange place :)
 ...Now, why don't you dress up as a nutcracker or go for some ballet lessons?
 ...Wrap up warm, with scarves and coats! I would wear something on my feet ~ but who cares when you're having an awesome snowball fight ~ what an action shot!
...And now, the best catalog page of all time ~ the black MP3000 is here! Woo hoo! This completes my collection of different MP Colours. I've got green, white, purple and however many there is on the island!
 ...Flashback! Penguins at work will find themselves doing a job they have done many moons ago - when ninjas were first discovered. Grab a reindeer to help you shovel up the snow!
...What a great way to end the year! But not so fast, we still have the igloo catalog to come...

Ice Rink Returns with a New Snow and Sports Catalog

In the Blackout, the stadium got covered with ice and was turned into an ice skating rink or an ice hockey rink and, now that it is the winter season, the rink has arrived and the football pitch has disappeared! Thanks Herbert :)

But, as you know, Herbert destroyed the Sports Shop and now the Everyday Phoning Facility! Is there something wrong with that place of land? Anyway, the sports shop has been moved to the rink and it's got some awesome gear for you...
 ...Check out these awesome sleds! Woah, safety first! Get your helmet on too...
 ...Is it getting colder? Wrap up warm with these outfits and head out on a skiing trip!
 ...Is it the season for ice hockey? You bet it is! Grab your coloured shirt and shoot...
 ...Make sure you wear your away team gear when playing at a different rink. Isn't there only one rink?
 ...If you're still struggling with how to hold a stick, or how to wear a helmet, or how to skate on ice: just get these hockey basics! Plus, once you've mastered this skill: you can become a referee.
 ...And for the girls ~ some different hairstyles and ice skates :)

...Winter sure is here! Be careful out in the snow, don't slip on the ice!

Another Sneak Peek

There are more sneak peeks of this year's holiday party arriving, yet the blackout hasn't even finished yet! It is sure that there will be a new set of emotes ~ but will they be there forever? It is sure that we will have reindeer puffles, and that we will be able to freeze different things. It is sure that we will get a huge gift if we login between December 25th and January 1st. Wow! Lots of awesome things are coming soon, look at this sneak peek from Spike Hike! A falalala emote :)
 ...Here's how the homepage looks :) It's a great new update!
I can't wait for the holiday party ~ the snow, oh wait. That's around every time of year and we just had most of it. Ha ha...

New Club Penguin Rooms

Club Penguin have released their outside room update! Rory, the construction worker, has given the island a new look while the blackout was on. Now that the snow has melted, you can finally see their hard work. Let's start at the Ski Village. Firstly, they've added more trees and the mountains are more detailed. There is a conveyor belt which transports the tubes to the mountain ready to go down again :) That's a clever idea, but it's actually not any good. It stops half way as if you go to the mountain ~ they clearly haven't built it all. How silly! Also, the EPF building is not yet back to normal, but it will be hopefully very soon. Check out the new Ski Lodge and the Tours Guide booth.
 ...The beach still, has no sand on it. But, there's just a few tiny details you can pick out. Like the new trees, the small bridge, the igloo snow castle, the chairs and umbrellas, the ski village in the distance, and the lighthouse and it's fishing netsand other things :) Not much difference, but far better looking!
 ...Next we have the Dock. There's tons more trees, and mountains too! You can see the Town, the beach and Lighthouse, the mountain and the Ski Village. The Hydro Hopper has moved slightly to the left ~ there are steps for the elderly, if they can't walk up the snow? There's benches and three different signs pointing which way to go. More rocks are at the edge of the sea, and now there's a rope to stop us falling in. Now, I'll just take a little drink from that new water fountain :)
...At the Town, the buildings have been upgraded so now the outside matches the inside ~ a club penguin times sign has been added to the coffee shop. There's a new table, new chairs and a new bench. Roll out the red carpet at the Dance Club and check out the three clothing items on sale outside of the "clothes shop." I'll always call it the gift shop. The buildings have been moved higher up, as they are now on pavement instead of snow. You can even see the fire dojo and water dojo from here! Rory and his workers must of done some very hard work to move all these buildings into the background!

 ...Here at the Snow Forts ~ they have been rebuilt with more snow from the blackout. The clock tower has been remodeled and there is no longer a message in PSA Code on it. You can see the different surroundings, and also a log and a snowpuffle have been added at the sides.

 ...At the Plaza, the buildings have been slightly remodeled. A red puffle will be launched out of the Pet Shop, and the tubes are going outside of the pet shop ~ yet no puffles go through them. The stage has their fabulous two doors that turn into one door magic ~ Rory obviously forgot to fix this when he added all the new doors. Go down the hole in the ground with a fish on it to get a stamp. Try not to eat that giant pizza over at the pizza place. Look at the Mine shack in the distance with the hundreds of trees called the forest. Again, the buildings are on pavement now instead of snow :)
And that's pretty much it. I guess Rory didn't have time to add more trees to the forest, and make the Cove and Mountain look better. It's only half a job done! Oh well, I guess there wasn't enough time in the blackout.

Featured Fashions

Has your penguin ever been featured on the Club Penguin Blog? I haven't, but check out these awesome fashions that these penguins have started:
First up, we have Lorenaa30 who stood out to me as the ultimate purple penguin. I really like how her whole outfit is colour coordinated, it looks brill!
Next, Dino651 really impressed me as a super-secret-agent-pirate-penguin. This epic combo would warn off any pesky polar bears, I’m sure!
I spotted Suzika as her outfit is so colourful. I love how her blue hair matches her ghost catching outfit, it’s ace!
As you all know I love to see random outfits, especially ones like Mario6415. A cow in a tie holding a guitar… that’s hilarious!
...They look awesome but they're not really my kind of style :)
