So i need to ask you something King.
1. The spiders that the old cob put in the air tells us he is a spider, and we all saw his six eyes right? Is he really a spider? or something that was so dangerous he had to be put deep in a black hole?
2. What is the deal with all the open spaces in avalon and zafaria? I go into a space thinking there is a boss in there, but there is nothing! is this a space for upcoming battles?
3. ( not a question, but something i found.) In the headmasters tower where gamma is i stood there and looked at all the worlds in the spinny thing. Guess what i found! Worlds that i never explored yet, like a ice world, (i think it is Polaris)

ok so I think nobody understands the third memory. (no offense guys!) So after morganthe won the battle against the spiders, the elder magi shows up. Since khrysalis had no queen, the elder magi thought morganthe could be the one, to become the shadow queen, if she survived the testing............. The elder spider magi taught morganthe shadow magic and everything else. That must mean the elder spider magi is way stronger than morganthe. So my question is, is he still alive? And if so, will we ever fight him, possibly in the this arc?

In the magi's house with the archmagus loricai (sorry don't know how to spell the name) When we entered his place with old cob he was all like: ''who is this that accompanies you? no it cannot be! destroy the wizard! '' when he saw old cob. He knew old cob, and that he was a huge threat right?
That's a pretty good way to interpret that scene.

2. We like to leave some open spaces for future ideas. And sometimes just because it's nice to have some open air to contrast dark caverns and twisting paths.

3. Very cool.

Oh, I've read some good theories about the third memory. But we wanted it to have some layers of meaning.

The Elder Magi had a prophecy that was directing them to search for a Chosen One. Something about Morganthe made them think this might be her (as opposed to, say, Captain Taylor Coleridge).

And yes, we know the Elder Magi took Morganthe to the Solar Arc, where she first touched Shadow. But that means they were only more powerful than her many, many, many years ago. They opened the door for her, but her true potential took her the rest of the way.

When you arrive at the Hive, Archmagus Lorcan is the most senior and most powerful of the Elder Magi.

Thanks for answering! :D Also just one more thing.....

1. If bartelby used to have the eye of the future, couldn't he have seen all of this coming? He could of seen that malistare was going to get his eye, all of the morgantea (sorry i couldn't remember spelling) battles, and the upcoming hard ships?

1. We know which creatures helped create the elemental schools of magic, and it seems obvious that bartleby was involved with the creation of the rest, but will we find out if myth, death, and balance had similar creatures like these other schools?

2. And since in Khrysalis we were given a slight glimpse at how spiritual schools play a role in the spiral (help create spiral key) but will there be more background into the spiritual schools?

Hail Lord Artorius,
I am grateful that you finally decided to answer my questions, and naturally I have more to add to the mix.

1) In various parts of the spiral it is implied that the titans are a "race" that is to say there are more than just the three you told me in my last question. For example how Ymir has three sons and how the fire dragons were once abundant in DS. Sorry to sound repetitive, but I want to get it right exactly how many titans are there?

2) When theurgist cast regenerate, exactly whose hand is that coming out of the sky?

3) Also often times, at least in the case of the Storm Titan, it is said that the titans have avatars like the great storm caiman of Azteca and the Tempus of Celestia. Can you explain this as well?

4) The spells we cast are we summoning fragments of the actual creatures' powers or are there multiple of those creatures existing in the spiral as is the implication by wizards having them as pets eg. Sun Serpent and where exactly do we summon them from?

lol quite a lot of questions I apologize for this but I wish to glean as much knowledge as is possible from the great Artorius.

This is a pretty simple question, but it eludes everyone in the wizard world: What school of wizardry does Merle Ambrose specialise in?

Hey King Art, back again, and I'm hoping you'll answer some of my questions!

1. Shadow magic, it appears, is in much more forms, as Morganthe has corrupted normal astral schools with such magic, but does that mean shadow magic has a more powerful form? One that isn't influenced by astral magic?

2. Why didn't we learn shadow/star magic at radiance reborn? The supposed place of star magic?
2. If I remember correctly, Morganthe didn't corrupt the Alcazar of Radiant Judgment with Shadow Magic, she destroyed it.

On another note, I'm not sure Shadow Creatures are corrupted Sun Magic. I think they are just pure Shadow Magic or corrupted Myth Magic (they are kind of like minions, in a way)

thank you and it is an honor to have you as king you majesty, i have 5 questions

1.was casting magic hard, like having diffucult rituals when the cards were not available?
2. what are the origin of spell cards?
3.why when magicians duel, why are we confined to our "circle" of power
4.why is your majesty epic?
5.i was hearing a talk in ancient krokotipian language and i heard that is the council of light is like the a peranhk
meaning "house of life" is this true?

hint: ancient krokotipian is exactly like the egyption language!

with determination, the wheels of fate drive you to success,

One day we'll have to answer the question about Bartleby's missing eye. Probably.

1. We've never spoken of them, so that will remain a mystery for now.

2. I'm sure we'll explore the Astral schools in even greater detail down the road.

I have that map of the spiral that gives the ninja pig companion in Pirate101 but it somehow manages to only give me a vague idea about how the spiral is put together. So what I want to know is, if you started in Wizard City and followed the "line" of the spiral, in what order would you encounter the worlds? You can include worlds from Pirate101 and ones that have been mentioned but not seen if you want.

1. Well, different people and different creatures understand the Spiral differently. Just as we have different mythologies and different cultures. It helps give it a more "layered" feel, and is a great storytelling tool. And yes, Ymir does have sons, but I'm not sure there were ever any other dragons on scale with the Fire Titan despite what they say in Dragonspyre.

2. That's a great question. Maybe it's a Life Giant or a really big Monquistan. :)

3. In this case, I believe we said "the Storm Caiman [was] a servant of the Great Storm Spirit. Or maybe it IS one aspect of the Great Spirit. Hard to say." I think that's pretty clear, no?

4. It really depends on the spell. In some cases it IS a fragment of the unique creature. At other times, you are summoning a random troll or minotaur to help you out in that moment. In the case of the Sun Serpent, it's likely a PART of him that is summoned from his home -- which could be described as in or near Azteca.

Correct. She could not master Star magic, so she blew the place up.

That's a pretty good take on Shadow Creatures. They don't really have anything to do with the Sun School.

And with that, I'm afraid we must close this "Story Time" thread. It has been a treat and a delight to field your questions, to the best of my ability. I hope it's provided some insight to the greater story of Wizard, and shed some light on some of the "behind the scenes" that goes into making this fantastic game.

But I've also tried to leave a few things as mysteries for future exploration, of course.

Thank you all for your questions. I can't wait to do this again, next time!

cheers,
"King Artorius"
