Its an entirely new world in pirate101....or is it?

The more you venture in the many scattered isles, the more you see
The many tunnels decked with Aztecosaur carvings
Makes you wonder

"Is skull island really as it seems?"

Perhaps the meteors left the once great Azetca shattered into many isles, thus forming skull island skyway?

Just a thought.

One thing is for sure, Skull Island does have a "forgotten past." There's some fun lore on the website here.

"The isles of Skull Island offer much to entice merchants and colonists: exotic fruits, spices, and timber draw high prices in markets across the Spiral, offering a fortune to any captain brave and resourceful enough to ship or smuggle them out. In the deepest jungles, crumbling ruins stand as remnants of a forgotten past. These ruins are the most dangerous places in Skull Island, but also the most tempting - the crumbling temples are adorned with solid gold!

Too far from the center of the Spiral for the great powers to exert much control, most of Skull Island is ruled by the Pirates themselves - crews and gangs have taken over failed colonies or built new ramshackle cities of their own: Jonah Town, Flotsam, Scrimshaw, and Skull Island itself, Captain Avery's Pirate capital.

The southern Skyways of Skull Island are dominated by Pirates, while the north features two great colonies: the thriving Monquistan city Puerto Mico, and the Marleybonian colony of Port Regal. Monquista owes its entire rise to the gold the Monkeys found in the ancient ruins, while the Dogs of Marleybone work tirelessly to corner the spice market. Their power broken long ago, the Cutthroats still prowl the shipping lanes, making as much trouble as they can, while Wharf Rats smuggle all manner of cargoes in and out of Skull Island, building a huge black market."

Well said, though to answer the OP, Azteca and Skull Island are separate worlds - the comet destroyed civilization on Azteca, not the actual world, and if you played through Azteca, you know there are pockets of survivors from the comets' fall (possibly in the form of our Azteca companions through the Tribal Crew Pack!). Skull Island has Aztecosaurs, who hail from Azteca - just like they also have Water Moles, who are also found in Celestia, and Rabbits who hail from Wysteria (Jack himself!).

Other ones that leap to mind are the Crabs (who hail from Valencia and yet have an empire in Celestia's ruins), the Rats who live in Scrimshaw and Port Regal and yet hail from Marleybone, etc, etc, etc.
