Is Avalon the Death world?

Hello everyone!

I was searching connections between Wizard101 and real life, and I found an interesting one. In some kind of Mythology, (I think greek, not 100% sure though) Avalon, (A Wizard101 world) is the "Isle of the dead" or the "Land of the dead". After discovering this I went on a journey through Avalon with my high level friends, seeking out bosses, enemies and themes of Avalon and discovered much of Avalon is death. And of course, you face young morganthe at the end of Avalon. So that's what I think, what about you? Do you agree of disagree and why?

I don't think avalon is a death world. Then it should me more darkness. Cyar Lyon is not very dark. High road either. I see, it is many death bosses, but i do not think the world is a death world.

To me Avalon seems more of an oldish, medieval themed world, that combines a couple of country themes. Like England. Plus, I see a lot of similarities between Avalon in wizard101 and several medievalish themed books. By that I mean stories like the Hobbit, and Redwall(both are fantastic!). These books share similar characters and ideas with this wizard101.
Instead of death, Avalon seems more of a life themed world, since the leprechauns and ponycorns(unicorns) seem to originate from there. Wait, I have a question. Don't the dogs come from Marleybone? If that's true, then why are there so many hound dogs everywhere in Avalon? Is this world like a flashback of Marleybone, and for some reason the name got changed?

Dragonspyre is themed after Russia? For some reason I thought it was themed after Greece or Rome or etc.

I thought it was the world of life but if it has Morganthe in it then it's death.

While I adventured through Celestia I found several paintings and artifacts of chariots and and arenas, so it might be themed after a country in the Mediterranean. Since the Greeks were interested in the stars and space, and the people of Celestia are famous for creating the astral spells, I can see a vague connection between the two. Although, several other cultures are included.These include the water moles, and the crabs. The floating land location is probably themed after a tropical island. Since the crabs are involved, and they are from an Italian themed world(which is where Rome is located), they give Celestia a little touch of Ancient Rome.
Now that I think about it, Celestia could just be an alien themed world full of brand new ideas and fantastical creatures that are totally original. KI, could you please correct me if I'm wrong? Could you tell me what culture inspired you to create Celestia? I'm sorry if this is too off topic.

Avalon is a nice grassy, sunny place. Wierd huh? I would think it is the opposite of what you are looking for. The music is even nice there.

For all of you who do not seem to know the Legend of King Arthur. Avalon is the mystical realm/island where all magic creatures in Medieval Europe are said to come from. It is the supposed kingdom of Oberon the fae king and is tied to the Legend of Arthur and Merlin.

Avalon in Wizard101 is a reference to Medieval Europe during the times of knights and kings, you know, Robinhood, and where all the old Disney princess stories are supposed to take place.

Merle Ambrose is also a reference to Merlin.
The many death themed bosses are most likely related to either Moganthe or all the old Arthurian legends about fighting evil monsters of death. A lot of those stories included death in them.

I think that the worlds are based off of this:

Wizard City: Generic Fantasy world. No specific school setting.
Wysteria: Generic Fancy College world (lol). No specific school setting.
Grizzleheim: Greenland, based off of Ice.
Krokotopia: Egypt, based off of Balance.
Marleybone: Edwardian England (automobiles? Has to be Edwardian), based off of Storm.
Mooshu: Generic Asian world (I can see a mix based off of the names they gave the NPCs -- it's mostly Chinese and Japanese.), based off of Life.
Dragonspyre: A vestigial empire world (like Rome), with an apocalyptic setting, based off of Fire.
Celestia: Atlantis, based off of the Astral schools.
Zafaria: Africa, based off of Death or Fire.
Avalon: Generic Medieval England Fantasy world, based off of Myth.
Azteca: Mesoamerican world. I'm not sure what it's based off of, yet.

Reverse Greenland and Iceland, and I think you have them down.
Greenland was named Greenland because the vikings wanted future viking settlers to go to it.
Iceland was the nice country that. the original vikings wanted for themselves.

Just a short history lesson

Everyone is wrong about Winterusk, it is not based on Iceland. It is based on Greenland because in reality Greenland is the place is actually mostly all ice. That is a fact, don't believe that Greenland is mostly ice? Look it up!
