There was a surprise Monday update today on Club Penguin following the end of the Fall Fair 2009 and Rockhopper’s visit to the island. For the past several days, mysterious things have been happening with fire on the Club Penguin island. Today, many places on the island started displaying a sunset in the background and there is now a special activity you can do called Sensei’s Scavenger Hunt. It works just like all the other scavenger hunts in Club Penguin.
To start Sensei’s Scavenger Hunt, click on the fire icon that appears in the top right of your screen. You’ll then need to locate eight different items that are hidden around the island. The clues on the little yellow sticky notes in the bottom right corner help you figure out where to find the items. Here’s the list of where they all are.
Sensei’s Scavenger Hunt Items
The first item is inside the ski lodge. Click on the fireplace to get the log.
The third item is inside the Pet Shop. Click on the black puffle in the cage to make him turn red and catch fire. Then click on him again to get a single burning hair from him.
The fourth item is inside the Mine. Click on the lamp near the cave entrance.
The fifth item is in the Pizza shop. Click on the bottle of hot sauce on top of the brick pizza oven, right next to the 101 Days Pin.
The sixth item is at the Cove. Click on the stick in the campfire.
The seventh item is up at the beacon on top of the lighthouse. Click on the jetpack near where you play the jet pack adventure game.
The eighth item is at the Dojo, outside in the courtyard. Click on the lamp on the left side of the main entrance.
After you collect all eight items, you can claim your prize. It’s the fire pin. You’ll also see at the Dojo there’s some sort of construction going on and a sign that says, Prepare for a new ninja journey. This could be an update to the Card-Jitsu game or possibly a new mission for ninjas, just like the missions for secret agents. That would at least explain why Club Penguin has been so slow in releasing Mission 11. Could this be the start of Club Penguin Ninja Mission 11?
Sensei is Here
Along with the scavenger hunt event, Sensei himself is reported to be wandering around the island on certain servers. As always, you can use the Club Penguin Sensei Tracker to find him.
Scavenger Hunt Glitches
If you look really carefully when you find an item, you’ll see the blue screen quickly say, easter_hunt. This is probably because the Club Penguin developers used the same bit of code for this scavenger hunt that they used for the Easter scavenger hunt. Someone probably just got lazy.
Here’s another possible glitch I found, but it could have just been a slow Internet connection. When I tried to log into Club Penguin tonight, I could see the introduction screen with the penguins, but instead of saying what they usually do when you move your mouse cursor over them, all they said was, Undefined.
