Connecting Candyland and Gobblerton


The best time to release a side world is usually between storyline updates, which is exactly where we stand in Wizard101. And considering we only closed the curtain on Morganthe's story arc last Summer, I think we might get a side world before we jump into the Old Cob storyline. That would also be a nice way to keep mid-level and high-level Wizards busy, while the third story arc is still in development.

What we know about Gobblerton...
It is a place filled with witches and was the old home of Gobblers, according to the Gobbler King, before they arrived to Wizard City. Gobblers call the latter New Gobblerton.

What we know about Candyland...
It is a land of cookie roads, chocolate rivers and candy cane trees, also called Candy Land and Candy World. According to Professor Greyrose, it's her homeworld and where her two older and evil sisters live, in gingerbread houses. Both sisters have cooked up a legion of gingerbread minions to continue the long, proud tradition of children-cooking evilness.

The connection between Candyland and Gobblerton
Both places seem to be connected somehow. First of all, Gobblerton sounds more like an area rather than a world (like what Winterusk is to Grizzleheim). On the other hand, Candyland was referred to as a "world" by Professor Greyrose, so it's pretty much self-explanatory.

Now what do both locations have in common? They are inhabited by evil witches. Apart from that, Gobblers love to eat and they probably had plenty of food back in Gobblerton, and we know that Candyland is full of snacks. I'm assuming that Gobblerton is an area of Candyland and that Gobblers followed Lydia Greyrose, after being freed from the evil witches by the Ice Professor.

What do you think of this theory? Would you like to explore the cookie roads and chocolate rivers of Candyland this year? Leave a comment below and let me know.
