What's the next step, you think? From the multiple previews we've seen of the game, there looks to be a lot more to the cathedral than up to the skeleton king. We've only seen a glimpse of the cultists, the Thousand Pounder boss is nowhere to be found ... what do you think? Were the cultist filler mobs in the early development stages? Is the Thousand Pounder a higher difficulty-only boss, maybe? Or will we have to plunge deeper in the depths of the cathedral to find the fallen star ... and then what?
I believe that after the skeleton king, you will be sent after the fallen star, which turns out to be the black soulstone, and then that cinematic plays and starts you in to act 2. But that is just a guess for how act one finishes.
Lazarus is mentioned in the lore scrolls by the guy who killed the SK (enter name here) so maybe the Butcher and Lazarus will make a reappearance. That would be sort of unimaginative on Blizz's part but on the other side of the coin, it would be interesting to reintroduce characters D1 players experienced.
Something new but old :/
Wait! You mean to tell me I spent 3 days going through one error after another to get here to play 45 mins to find that's it? I have gotten most all achievements, explored everywhere I can see, finished the Sk. There's no new area? No new quest chain? 45 Mins of play? Please tell me I am wrong in what I am reading here!

My guess is Adria is actually Auriel. Which would makes Leah a demon/archangel (which would make her a super being) Cain wanted to keep it a secret. Imperius found out and wanted to kill Leah. Tyreal tried to intervene and lost which is him being the meteor falling into the cathedral. The evils were looking for the black soulstone (which I think can be used against the angels) They were close to the soulstone when Tyreal fell from the sky and decided that he was stripped of most of his power and they would try and convert him (like the cultists were doing to the warrior) We fight them off. We fight and kill crazy tyreal. We go back to town and see Magda trying to convert cain. They run off into act 2.
we go into Magda's lair and fight her and rescue Cain. Cain found out that Zoltan has been put back together and is going to give the soulstone to Belial. We arrive to late find Adria and kill Zoltan. Adria says belial is around so we kill him to. Adria wants us to go to Caldoun and use the library of fate (ithareal's library) to find out about the black soulstone.
We arrive in caldoun and it's being attacked by Azmodan. We kill a bunch of his Lieutenants getting to the library. Rakanoth is there and killed Ithereal (they could be the same and that is what the black soulstone does to the angels) We go after Azmodan while Adria stays in the library. We Kill Azmodan and Adria reveals that Imperius was just looking for a reason to attack sanctuary and she is actually Auriel and she is going to put a stop to this with the black soulstone by setting Diablo free so that Imperius will have to dedicate resources on fighting Diablo rather than humans.
Angels fighting Demons. Auriel sets Diablo free Imperius kills her, we kill Imperius, diablo shows up and gets beaten like a pinata over and over again by people in MF gear. Tyreal says he was right and the humans surpassed the angels in their ability to fight off the forces of evil.
I don't know a lot about the Diablo lore but I am guessing it will be something like this.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
