Perhaps the old nameless hero took on the name Rhobar 3?

About the story -> It's about the same they let us know before any gothic. The kickoff and nothing more.

so very, very tired (Star Trek XI quote according to the Simpsons)

Whereas "Rhobar" always seemed to me as an shortened form of "Rotbart" = "Redbeard".

I don't know whether this was intentional, but I always had the feeling as it was so.

mmm now you mention it I see what you mean, but it never occured me. But I don't think that was the meaning, I mean Rhobar was a good king and not a person like redbeard

I don't think as well that this connection was intentional.

I think that most RPGs or other games set in fantasy worlds follow the algorithm suggested in the rulebooks for Swedish PnP system Drakar och Demoner. Take an existing name, add a few "h" and swap a few other characters. -bar must be an incredibly common last syllable in fantasy names. Either that or you give the character a name that actually means something or exists in the real world (the M&M approach). And try to make the names sound similar (Gothic uses a lot of Spanish names for instance). Some games simply steal real names that noone heard about (IIRC the demo for one of the Krynn games has characters named after Latvian and Lithuanian cities).

So I dont think there is anything profound to the Rhobar name. It's likely just a mutation of Roger or Robert…
