Machine Lord - If you are in the presence of the Supreme Machine Lord, you are either bowing or dead! He is not to be fooled with, for he is dangerous and untrustworthy! If you dare try to outwit him, remember, he is just as intelligent as he is powerful, and there is a reason even doomsday machines bow down to him in fear.
Grantm56 is a insane guy joined this blog to bring it back. He’s on Poptropica, although not very often, and was on this blog when it was at it’s peak of popularity, though he didn’t post much back then. He is also trying to post once every day in 2011! He likes to eat, and questions his sanity. He is currently working on a helpful tool he likes to call the “Grantionary”. In BotB, he is a Jedi who will try to stop the war, and keep it peaceful at all costs.
Pandora lives in Australia and used to like Poptropica but has limited time… Her real name is Nicola. She enjoys drawing anime, reading, and listening to music. She also enjoys graphics designing even though she sucks at it D:! Visit her blog (be nosy) or deviantART (see her art!).
Randy is just your average multi fandom girl. She enjoys various book series like Harry Potter, Divergent, Percy Jackson and more. 3rd person is quite awesome. She lives in a very boring country. Read her awful stories and browse cool pics on her Tumblr.
ρнσєиιχ тнaℓℓaѕѕa is not your average 12 year old american-asian. She is crazy obessed with Harry Potter, Fable Haven, Doctor Who, and basically anything British and/or Fantasy. She loves to sketch, oil paint, and art in general. She swims for Excel, and loves swimming. Her imagination often runs wild, she seems sweet under adult radar, but has an evil, stubborn, dramatic side too. Watch her deviantART here.
Nireth of Normandy is not sure as to why she is talking in third person… anyway, she likes dragons, How to Train Your Dragon, Vikings, and animated movies. If you ever want to rip her off, tell her that whatever you’re selling has magical properties or is some sort of talisman. She’ll probably buy it.
*MT is a person that generally laughs a lot, more specifically a twelve year old, mixed, California boy. He likes being creative and putting his imagination through characters he makes as doodles on paper. In real life, he’s very shy and watches things that make him burst out with laughter.
Zuzu~ has no profile yet.
hland7 is a 13 year old girl who fangirls over Glee, Charmed, Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, Starkid, and green, among other things. She lives in China. She loves music and singing. In BOTB, she is a careless shapeshifter who loves to mess with people.
Starship.Serpent ‘has no profile yet.’ MR. WORDPRESS HAS BEEN LYING AGAIN.
ƒσχƒαcє: Is a hyper teenage girl with a love for music and acting. She absolutely adores Mythology, computer games like The Sims and Portal, and her cat, Cookeh. She enjoys reading The Hunger Games and Pretty Little Liars and her favorite singer is Ke$ha.
Mara Elisabeth is a girl that is accident prone, completely paranoid, really artistic and a true fighter for fair rights everywhere, from fifth and sixth graders getting more privilages at her middle school to gay couples being allowed to marry. She likes Degrassi, Evanescence, Whip It, her friends, writing, and just about anything to do with space.
Miley the Brawler is a regular girl with a crazy life. I love Ke$ha, Britney Spears, and Lady Gaga. I want to spend as much time as I can with my friends Liza, Marshal, Colton and Nathan. I love skateboarding. I have a really bad temper.
SuperThunder/IsabelleTheHuntress is mostly a regular thirteen year old girl, who is a Hunter of Artemis. So technically, she’ll be eternally twelve. She rocks at archery/hunting, and throws funtastical tantrums.
★Brave Tomato★ is just some 13-year-old girl who blogs. She writes stories, draws, and games, as well as listens to music a LOT. Her online name is Allison Rillica, but peeps call her by her Poptropican name, Brave Tomato. She’s also the lieutenant huntress of Artemis in Group 2 as Eliza Williams. Her BOTB alter ego is Fern. She likes the genre of mythology and fantasy. And stuff like that. Also, her Poptropican is known for the star on her cheek. Well, that’s about it. BT out! ★

Where Thunder Roars
This blog was created by Poptropical Thunder in hopes that this would help thousands of Poptropicans to lead a better life on Poptropica. But, for some strange reason, everybody stopped talking about Poptropica. The exact date of the creation of this blog is April 14, 2009, although it was unknown for a while.
This blog, as you may have noticed, has many pages, so they were organised into one page called Old Authors’ Material.
In order to continue commenting on this blog without getting blacklisted, you must follow these rules. If you violate a rule, then you will receive a warning via-email. If you continue to do so, then you will be blacklisted. ( Blacklisting is being banned via comments.)
Please just follow these rules and let everybody have a good time!
1. No bad words. No swearing. “Bad words” are not only common swear words, but any words that may be rude or offensive to other bloggers/readers.
2. No Spamming. Spam is meaningless, imaginary words like “hyghiwej”.Spamming is also using too many smilies, which are not bad, but if you fill an entire comment will nothing but smilies, it is qualified as spam. Please don’t do this, as it wastes our time and delays us from bringing you quality news and updates.
3. Use manners and be respectful to faculty and other bloggers/readers. Be nice and use common manners with other people. Remember that they are human, like you. If you do something that is in any way offensive to other players, you will have to
a) Apologize to the person offended;
b) Apologize to staff who had to spend extra time sorting out the problem;
c) Pay the normal rule-violation consequences.
4. Do not reveal personal information. Do not under any circumstances share personal information.
What is personal information? Your address, your school, your full name all qualify. We will accept age, gender, and your first name, and maybe your country and state too.
5. No murder/death threats. Revealing the fact that you are a homicidal psychopath doesn’t help solve problems. It doesn’t really help you make friends, either. Killing people doesn’t make them like you, it just makes them dead!
Those are the Commenting Rules. Please help us by following these rules!
In your comments, if you would like to use smilies in your post, here is a little chart to help you learn how to use smilies. But, as mentioned above, please do not over smilie.
Staff only! Sorry readers.
Wait! Put that knife down and don’t even think about tracking down their IP! Before anything breaks out, try and solve it. Please be considerate of others when filing complaints! (I SAID PUT THAT KNIFE DOWN!)
The chat page of WTR! Commenting rules apply to the chat as well.
Everyone has to do it at some point. Please note: This page is here to help you if you’re absolutely lost; please use it wisely!
History of Where Thunder Roars
WTR started out as Poptropicalthunder’s Blog, or PTB. It was a completely Poptropica-related blog. PTB got famous when an author from here who just got accepted into the world-famous Poptropica Help Blog told everyone about PTB. The visitors came piling in, and everyone liked the blog so much that people started asking to become authors at PTB, and there were thirty-six of them.
Soon, everyone got tired of Poptropica. Everyone was talking about random things and stories and what happened at school. It was a popular and thriving blog, with a new post on the average of every three hours. Many people would stay up late, checking PTB for new posts. And the PHB chat was pretty popular with PTB authors, too.
But then it happened. Everyone stopped posting. It came to three posts a week, and then about every author left. They still haven’t come back to this day. But luckily, other people have been hired. It’s only seventeen authors, with only eight from the original 36, but soon it will be back to its original community state. Now there are about three to ten posts a day. Not as much as before, which was about fifteen a day, but it’s a start. The name has been changed from Poptropical Thunder’s Blog to Where Thunder Roars.
And that’s WTR so far.
Any queries or ideas? You can email us at email@example.com
Hiring is currently on hold. We will reopen most likely around fall.
We are looking for new authors. You need to have proper grammar and English, and if you want to be an author here just comment and ask. Include a blog or something that we can look at to see if you are worthy, and then it will be decided. If you are accepted in, you will be only an author until you start posting, and then you will become an administrator. For a better insight, here’s a form you can fill out: Preferred Name:
Age (if you wish to add):

I, _______, pledge to be a loyal author. I will abide by the rules, use proper grammar, and be kind to others. I understand that if I am not active or break several rules I could be demoted/removed.
