So, I did a quick search on Roberto, and I discovered that I'm not the only one wondering about who this Roberto is.
I then went to wiki and found that the only NPC close to Roberto is Robert Lancaster. hmm, that doesn't seem right. I did another search on Robert and Kingsisle, and there is an artist there that works at kingsisle named Robert Wilsher, so it could be an inside joke about an artist that works there . . . that would make sense.
I'm not sure though. Why would I waste my time? Well, I'm on the lookout here for new information on possible leads that will give a clue to who the new bad guy is going to be. I mean, we defeated Malistaire, we know that more challenges await us, we know we're going to progress past level 50 in some harder content . . . so who will be our new bad guy and how will that all be tied together?
Back in August, J. Todd Coleman (our Executive Director), sat down with the fine people at Gamezone and he was asked about the "end-game" content of Wizard101:
Q: Is there an end-game? It seemed that there were story elements driving quests through the first levels, do those stories continue to drive the game, do they bleed over into other story arcs, or will players uncover new storylines as they progress?
Coleman: There is, actually – this is a departure from most virtual worlds. Every area in the game is tied together by a primary narrative thread, and the story actually includes a beginning (the player arrives at Wizard City and signs up for class), a middle (the player grows in magical power) and an end (the player faces the ultimate bad guy to try and save the world.) Beyond that, we’ll be adding new chapters to the story to keep the world as engaging and immersive as possible.
We've faced the ultimate bad guy, we know there's going to be new chapters to the story . . . who will our next enemy be? I definitely don't think it's going to be a dragon titan named Deathwing or anything like that . . .
So here's a question for my readers, Who do you think the new bad guy will be or how do you think this will all tie together in the the next world (celestia?)?
