These Protectors believe that any interference with the islands of Poptropica could have catastrophic results. As if things aren’t bad enough, Octavian has finally claimed possession of the confounding map, and is determined to alter the time line. The trio must join forces with the Protectors and find Octavian before all of human history is changed—or worse—destroyed!
