Today I decided to get deeper into the wizard101 storyline, more particular, 'The Krokonomicon'.
Wiki on Wizard101 plot (SPOILERS!!!):
The plot begins with several problems occurring throughout Wizard City, host to the Ravenwood school. The player must aid other wizards into completing dangerous missions. After defeating Lord Nightshade, a grim reaper-like spirit that is responsible for the undead attacks on Wizard City, the player gains access to the location of Krokotopia, where the Kroks, an ancient race that enslaved Krokotopia centuries ago, have reawakened from a deep sleep and are now attacking the current residents of Krokotopia. shortly after defeating the Krok Leaders, it is revealed that Malistaire wishes to obtain an ancient book of magic known as the "Krokonomicon" that can control the powers of Life and Death to use for unknown purposes (it is later revealed that it is to bring his deceased wife, Sylvia, back to life and to rule the Spiral with her). When the Krokonomicon is later transported to another world, Marleybone, the player follows the lead. The mayor of Marleybone doesn't allow you to take the Krokonomicon due to recent crimes, and the Krokonomicon is stolen by the master thief Meowiarty on behalf of Malistaire soon after. The player must find Meowiarty's lair, which is atop Big Ben. When Meowiarty is returned to prison, Malistaire conspires with demons in the land of MooShu to help him steal the key to the next world, Dragonspyre. The player is then led to battle the demons, who have poisoned the emperor. Once healed, the emperor informs the player that Malistaire has already left MooShu, setting the next movement of his evil plot into motion in Dragonspyre, an ancient world destroyed by a giant dragon. He dubs himself the "Necromaster," attempting to resurrect his wife using the Krokonomicon. When he is eventually defeated by the player, Malistaire and his wife finally gain peace. In Celestia, the most recent world, the player is on a quest to find the missing explorer.Origin of the Krokonomicon:
After seeing a Southpark episode, yes southpark, i managed to find a link between 'Krokonomicon' and the 'Necronomicon', the names sound alike, and i can tell you what it means:
"an image of the law of the dead"
nekros - νεκρός ("dead"), nomos - νόμος ("law"), eikon - εικών("image").After i found that on the good old wiki, I came to the following conclusion, very simple :)
"an image of the law of the Kroks"I think they mean, that this book is the Law of the ancient Kroks who controlled the powers of life and death.
What is the 'Necronomicon'?
The Necronomicon is a fictional grimoire appearing in the stories by horror writer H. P. Lovecraft and his followers. It was first mentioned in Lovecraft's 1924 short story "The Hound",written in 1922, though its purported author, the "Mad Arab" Abdul Alhazred, had been quoted a year earlier in Lovecraft's "The Nameless City". Among other things, the work contains an account of the Old Ones, their history, and the means for summoning them.
Abdul Alhazred is a fictional character created by American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft. He is the so-called "Mad Arab" credited with authoring the imaginary book Kitab al-Azif (the Necronomicon), and as such an integral part of Cthulhu Mythos lore.
In 730, Alhazred supposedly wrote a book of ultimate evil in Arabic, al-Azif, which would later become known as the Necronomicon. Those who have dealings with this book usually come to an unpleasant end, and Alhazred was no exception. Again according to Lovecraft's "History":
We know alhazred of course as Professor alhazred and a teacher of the art of balance.
I'm going to end here, i can go on forever :D
