Again apologies for the late showing, I seem to be getting pushed to bi-annually with these things, even though that's not really what I would have wanted, but when it's time these things have a way of getting away from me. Certainly work continues on the site in the meantime and the wiki rolls on.
To be honest there's perhaps not so much to mention in this edition Wiki-wise. I've been unsure of where to turn my attentions before eventually settling down to updating some Blood Omen locations and dungeons, leading to completed articles on the Mist Form dungeon, the Lake of the Dead (and its sister article the Abyss), Kain's Mausoleum, the Energy Bolt dungeon, the Light dungeon, Wolf Form dungeon, Stun dungeon and the Cemetery.
On top of this …Read more >
Well once again we have the traditional waiting period. I had intended to post this in time for October, but well this has been a tough year and things have once again gotten away from me. Apologies for that. So what's been going on? Well although the community has died down a little since the cancellation of Nosgoth, time marches on and there are still a number of ongoing fan projects and work, news and other sources of interest for LoK fans:

On the official side, GlyphX artist Boyd Lake has finally updated his website with his completed models for the vampires Dumah and Zephon as seen in the SR1 intro - these accompany those already released of Melchiah, Rahab and Turel. Denis Dyack has also been taking fans questions on Blood Omen: Legacy of…
Well, I keep meaning to do these more often and keep finding distractions to hold me off. So apologies for the now almost routine delays in my bigger round-ups. As usual, there have still been a lot of things going on. So without further ado, let's continue.
First off in late January we reached 1000 likes on our Facebook page. It may be a drop in the ocean compared to the number that visit the main website every day, but the Facebook page is still our main outlet for news and work summaries. So a big thank-you to everyone that has followed us.
As for updates on the website, there is still a lot of work going on in many articles - particularly in the areas of general and recurring terms with completed pages on the World map, Ignis Fatuus, Rot…Read more >
Just something I've been thinking about recently. It's made clear throughout the series that no one but Raziel truly possesses free will, right? That due to the Wheel of Fate, nothing anyone in Nosgoth does is of their own choosing?
Then that means Kain never really had a choice as to whether or not to refuse the sacrifice. The Pillars were doomed no matter what.Read more >
Welcome to 2016. I keep meaning to do these more often and spectacularly failing as real life catches up. Of course updates do continue in the meantime, it's just not always the best use of time to summarize big chunks of updates. So what's been happening? In short - a lot.
The Wiki updates march on, with the Soul Reaver 2 articles and categories now slowly approaching completion. Pages that have been completed recently include the articles on the Planar portals, Reaver fonts, Air Forge demo, Reaver bar, Health coil, Save altars, Sealed doors, Vampire Interview, Shadow bridges, Swamp (terrain), Ice, Rain, Vorador's crows and Snow. With some scrutiny a new article - Wheels - was also added dealing with the wheels turned in Legacy of Kain: Sou…Read more >
The new game footers are brought to you by Encyclopedia Gamia and our very own Games Hub. The basic goal is simple: draw together Wikia communities in one location that enjoy the same genres and hopefully expose them to some new games and communities they might be interested in. Our secondary goal is to try and connect editors looking for help with members and administrators from other wikias who are interested in helping them out, whether it be with content, technical knowledge, or insight gleaned from running a community.
If you haven't already been approached, feel free to include your site in the submission section below in the genre you feel is most appropriate for the game you cover. Note that, with rare exception, a game should only…

Okay this update must begin with some tragic news that surfaced over the last month, so please grab a seat if you haven't been keeping abreast:
It has been reported that the Paul Lukather - the voice actor behind Vorador and Bane - died in October last year, aged 88. The news had taken some time to filter through and was only widely known in the Legacy of Kain community when it was uncovered during routine check-ups last month. We are all extremely saddened by the news and hope you will join us in in extending our condolences. RIP Paul Lukather 1926-2014.
In happier news there has been a lot of progress on the wiki front with another few batches of new images added which showcase the Defiance forge locations, enemies, enemy abilities and many …Read more >
My apologies for the delay in summarising updates - I always resolve to do the big summary updates more frequently but end up with it being months later before I have the time to properly sit down and list what's been happening, but I'm going to aim for bi-monthly from now on. So what has gone on since November? The short answer is "a whole lot" - I just hope I can find/remember and type enough to explain.
Okay in terms of the fan community stuff - there have been a couple of interesting things of note with a brand new Legacy of Kain background design available on the Square-Enix forums and a brand new survey about future franchises (which is now closed). The big news in the last few months however was a slew of new information on the cancel…Read more >
Admin team update - the new search bar atop pages is not part of our redesign, but an unsolicited experiment on a new form of global navigation by our parent hosting service, Wikia. As it currently stands the new bar remains uncustomisable – against our will – and will remain in place until at least January. You can find out about it and give feedback on the changes here: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Rupert_Giles/Global_Navigation_Update
Please also direct complaints to this address: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contact/general

Ok, I'm new to this wiki, but something I've thought of, I have heard of this 'Nosgoth' game, I'm not quite sure what the premises of it are, but; personally I think it would be awesome to see a Legacy of Kain game based with the Starcraft, Dawn of War, based gameplay, there would be like different teams, for me, I visualize it as like the exact type of game play, buidings, unit types, abilities armor and weapon upgrades, like for example teams, it would be based in post pillar destruction, with all factions of characters from the entire universe of the game, Mobius' Vampire Hunters, Dumah's clan, The Hylden, Demons, Ancient Vampires, etc, many more people could come up with in general, But for an example of how to distance out the faction…Read more >
Time continues to march on in the world of Legacy of Kain and things are getting a little stretched, so apologies for the lack of recent updates on these blogs - though if you have access to Wiki activity, Recent Changes or our Facebook page you'll know that a lot is still going on - but we can always use people to lend a hand contributing to incomplete topics if you're knowledgeable or can research in the relevant areas.
First off, we have to mention that our Facebook page - now arguably used as our primary place for updates - had reached 500 likes and climbing (thought this may be a drop in the ocean compared to the several thousand hits accrued every day at this site), there are a few bonuses associated with this (some still in the works),…Read more >
A veritable goldmine of concept artwork from cancelled game Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun has found its way to the Internet, alongside a few screenshots. Enjoy.Read more >
Well it's been a very busy time of late and since the last update many things have been updated on the site, with several of the terms articles updated to 'completed' status, these include Health recharges (SR1 environment/terms), Eldritch energy recharges (SR1 environment/terms), Scalable walls (SR1/SR2/Defiance environment/terms), Bells, (SR1/BO2 environment/terms) Malek's Helmet (recurring/BO1/SR2 environment/terms) the Ring menu (SR1/SR2 user interface/terms) and our favourite quote of the ancient tongue - Vae victis (recurring phrase) In other news, the Nosgoth juggernaut continues to rumble on and is now on closed beta which basically means that we're onto a stable build accessible by invitation and despite development and updates sti…Read more >

Well, since the launch of Nosgoth (or the community day even), it has been a roller-coaster ride and this has effected the usual updating of the site somewhat. Needless to say, site updates continue, but a few things are very much in the background in a space that’s a lot more crowded with genuine LoK news for the first time in a decade.
Firstly we have something of a secret project going on tied up with this symbol – We've laid down the gauntlet in other places, but I'll formally lay it down here as well: that symbol is very special to us at the moment, but can you spot where it came from? (bonuses for correct guesses). I will confirm it is an established symbol from the current LoK games, appears several times in the LoK wiki image galler…Read more >
Hello Again. This is Part 2 of an article detailing the Nosgoth Community Day and the first experience of Nosgoth for the fan-base – Part 1 available here covers the Nosgoth title itself. This article is of a more personal nature detailing the Community Day itself and my experiences.
For some time we've been keeping tabs on Nosgoth here at the wiki and we have had a fair amount of contact with George and the team regarding the game, but it was still a massive surprise to get invited to to an event where we'd get to see Nosgoth in action, and the presence of most of the big Legacy of Kain fan names that I've followed for years was an amazing added bonus. As dates and locations were decided it became amusingly clear that we were heading to Wimbledon…Read more >
The time has finally come. Nosgoth has now been officially announced and the new website www.Nosgoth.com is officially up and running .As many of you may know, for some time we've been following the reports of new Legacy of Kain title Nosgoth and by now the big pieces of the puzzle should have begun to click together for everyone. For reference here is the FAQ on the Eidos Forums and the news that appeared earlier today.
So now that we all know, I can now reveal that a little while ago the lovely folks at Square Enix Europe kindly invited a few of us down for a Nosgoth Community Day. A fantastic experience for all where we got a detailed introduction to the world of Nosgoth, a trailer video (which is awesome) and of course, they let us get our gru…

In the immediately foreseeable future, we intend to overhaul the graphic design of the wiki, replacing it with a new and (hopefully) sleeker interface. We have effectively remained with the current one for four years, and with the advances both in best design practices, our technical knowledge, and the prospects of more from the Legacy of Kain series alike over that time period, a change seems appropriate.
Though more minimalistic than our current style, I hope you will approve of it; it ought to enhance the focus on our content, and many subtle tweaks will perhaps prove more palatable to any readers with visual impairment.
While we will try to minimize disruption for our visitors, this is necessarily going to mean some mucking around with the…Read more >
After the major news of the last few months, things have gone relatively quiet on the news developments recently, allowing us to get back to the good old article updates.
Continuing on with Soul Reaver 2 locations work, the articles on Janos Audron's Retreat and the Fire Forge (SR2) have been referenced and completed, with the same treatment given to Smokestack landmark from Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.
Articles dealing with the final 'boss' encounters of Soul Reaver 2 have also been referenced and finalized for Melchiah (SR2 boss), Zephon (SR2 boss), Rahab (SR2 boss), Dumah (SR2 boss), Turel (SR2 boss) and Raziel (SR2 boss) - completing the Soul Reaver 2 bosses category. Additionally the Malek character page has been referenced and completed.

UPDATE: The article on recently revealed cancelled Legacy of Kain title is now up at Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun, containing all of Divine Shadow/Mama Robotnik's discoveries as well as subsequent comment and explanation by developers. As with the Nosgoth (game) article, this article will be updated as more information becomes available. ]] ORIGINAL POST: Well, there are certainly some big bombs dropping now. With the "Nosgoth" title recently confirmed and our own page about the Nosgoth game created but only properly completed and up for a few hours, there has been another major revelation in the Legacy of Kain universe - though again not necessarily what fans would hope for.
Once again, LoK researcher and historian Divine Shadow has been uncovering evide…Read more >
Vorador: "but how? they killed you?"
Janos Audron: "No, far worse, but that is a story for another time."
Ok, this statement says alot. We know what we see happen to Old blue, and that a special item of his exists in 2 places at the same time ALL the way through BO2 (creating a sustained paradox). We also see something nifty from Kain The Barkey Headed (most likely hildan blood stuff). we have babble about 2 new games coming out. One being the completely vaporware "Obsidian Sun/Obsidian Blood/Revanent" and the other being the mystery title in the magic steam notes being "War for Nosgoth".
could one of these games give us the FULL run down of what when on be…Read more >
UPDATE: The new article on the upcoming multiplayer Legacy of Kain title is now up at Nosgoth (game). It largely speaks for itself, and little in the way of new information has happened since the original blog post, so I suppose we'll have to forget about that more extensive news round-up for now. In any case, we'll keep the article updated to the best of our ability.
ORIGINAL POST: Just a short post to say we are aware of today's announcement from VG247 and Square Enix's George Kelion that the project known as "Nosgoth" is indeed a game in development. Bear with us for a short while: we're currently gathering all available information, and will soon follow up with an article on the new title and a more extensive news post.Read more >
Well this has been an interesting week. In case anyone has missed it, since last Sunday there has been a flurry of sources apparently related to a new game - bringing us to the stage where it is now almost certain that there is indeed activity going on in the world of Nosgoth, but unsure what form it will ultimately take. Here's a round-up of the information that has surfaced:
- 1)Initially, technology company AMD (essentially a processor optimization company) released an update for their systems (the Catalyst project), including options for several unreleased and unannounced games - and among the list of the titles supported were several references to "Nosgoth" and "War for Nosgoth" (the title of a website registered by Square-Enix back in Febr…
Well, after the awe-inspiring start to the year there has been little in the way of definitive further developments on the LoK6 rumors as yet, but as ever E3 on the 11th-13th June could be promising, though don't hold me to that if it doesn't happen ;-). In other real-world news, Legacy of Kain won Pixlbits 'Missing in Action' gaming series knockout poll competition beating its closely related rival, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requim in the final. Former lead artist Daniel Cabuco has also been drawing come clearer images of the pre-devolved brothers of the Council and has completed designs for Rahab and Dumah.
As always we've been badgering away on articles, with a slew completed and referenced. To start with, very much inspired by Cabuco's…Read more >
There's been a bit of a furore recently with the first verifiable evidence of activity on a new Legacy of Kain title emerging with the domain registry of "warfornosgoth.com" by Square-Enix and the discovery of a (hastily removed) 2011 storyboard for a "Legacy of Kain videogame animation pitch" in artist portfolios. At present there is yet to be any official comment on these, so only minor additions have been added to the Sixth game article. As mentioned in Dubiel's post our current "War for Nosgoth" article refers to the conflict between Kain's vampire army and the revived Sarafan (seen briefly in the Blood Omen 2 intro) - it is not related to this new information.
On the site-update front, a lot of work has been done on Soul Reaver 2 locations…Read more >
Hi internet, yes yes, we see it too. It has been reported all over the place that, last Thursday, Square Enix's registrars bought the rights to a new domain named warfornosgoth.com. Whatever this name signifies, it is almost certainly related in some way or another to the Legacy of Kain series (Nosgoth obviously being the setting/world of the games).
To recap on all the hubbub prior to this story, there has been a lot of talk since 2011 about a "Soul Reaver reboot", but literally no reliable evidence to confirm its existence. The blog VG24/7 continues to insist that Crystal Dynamics may be working on such a game, even though Crystal Dynamics has already told them that they are wrong.
Strictly speaking, there wasn't a war for Nosgoth in Legacy o…Read more >
A few updates over the seasonal period, most of which has already been noted on Facebook (sorry about the slower in-site round ups). Of highest note in actual 'news' was the release of Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Soul Reaver 2 and Legacy of Kain: Defiance on Steam in early December.
In terms of article updates, some digging by veteran fan detective Divine Shadow/Mama Robotnik has led to a new precursor project - Kain II - being added. Meanwhile, the Soul Reaver 2 abilities category has been filled and completed, for 29 articles of SR2 and (occasional SR1) knowledge.
Finally, rounding of our Anniversary updates, the Elder God has been massively revamped for a comprehensive gold-star analysis and current featured article, which includes some recen…Read more >
Apologies for the delay on the round-up, a lot of the work recently has been some necessary background improvements that weren't easily explainable. As always, a more up-to-date and detailed list of edits can be found on Wiki Activity or Recent Changes if I'm not quick enough in summarising.
The main core updates continue, with the article on the Land of Nosgoth reworked, referenced and completed - providing a detailed analysis of our favourite dying world and giving us our current featured article. Meanwhile in the SR2 Project the articles in the Soul Reaver 2 items and equipment categories have all been referenced and completed, providing a guide to all collectables and significant objects.
Continuing with the developments of our New Refer…Read more >
Ardeth Silvereni, the creator of our ever-superlative fellow fansite, Dark Chronicle, notified the community that the PlayStation Blog has a new interview with Amy Hennig concerning Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.
Some of the information has been covered in earlier sources, but Amy has also revealed a few all-new facts:
- Amy makes her first public acknowledgement of the original Shifter project.
- Shifter's lead character "was essentially a fallen angel of death, a reaper of souls hunted by his former brethren, and now driven to expose and destroy the false god they all served". This character was not necessarily one and the same as Raziel; he was to "glide on the tattered remains of his wing-like coattails" (in contrast to Raziel's organic wings).
The ongoing work continues with some core content updates.
First off, the page summarizing the whole Legacy of Kain series has been updated and improved to provide a portal to the series and content at the wiki. Along with this, the page regarding Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver has been reworked with a thorough scrutiny of the game and its content. Also the page for Vorador has been updated and expanded.
In categories, content has been added and completed for each of individual Reaver enhancements in each game - including cut enhancements - and these can be found through the Equipment categories. The pages for Soul Reaver 2 puzzle objects have also had content added and completed.
Perhaps most significantly of late, Blood Omen 2 has recently been rel…Read more >
The Ask Daniel Cabuco a Legacy of Kain related Question section on his new website is providing a fair share of BIG answers concerning missing plot pieces at the moment.
Here's a round-up of some of the interesting bits:
- For SR1: The Lost City was "pulled down" into the Abyss by the Elder God source. The SR1 Glyph Shrines were intended to be "mysterious" to provoke discussion source. The Rahabim fired water bubbles and the Stone Glyph would have enabled the walk underwater ability of the later Earth Reavers source.
- The character to resurrect Vorador in the original design of Defiance was... Raziel. He would have met the human sorceress Umah (who was already a vampire worshiper, much like the Priestess and already in Vorador's clan). She would have s…
I may have slightly left this update a bit later than I was planning; and that always tends to lead to a bit of a pain of update summaries. Anyway, first and foremost, the most significant and noticeable update is to our Main (Front) Page which has been totally redesigned and reworked. The new main page contains a lot more basic explanation of the site (like the previous community page updates), improved navigation options, news and update summaries and a host of links to social-media, the games on GOG, community websites and fan-hubs, as well as LoK fansites in other languages. We're quite proud of the new presentation and hope it should last us some time.
Of course, there have been many other things happening in the background for some time…Read more >
some small news nuggets to go through.
As people following the forums or our Facebook page may already be aware, artist Daniel Cabuco is currently building a new online portfolio. Unfortunately, this move does mean that the former website hosted at spectraljin.com has been taken down (apologies for any broken-links caused by this) - the new website is something of a work-in-progress at the moment but should eventually contain some of the images from the previous site. Perhaps most significantly, the new site contains an accompanying forum, where he welcomes Legacy of Kain fans to ask him any and all questions about the series (however, please keep in mind that he is NOT working on a new game, and can only illuminate the past). On top of this …Read more >
Some rather unexpected delays to our plans this week, but it has helped kick some of the background bits into order. The main hold-ups should be out of the way now and the site should be a bit better explained and easier to interact with.
To begin with, some of our explanation and 'starting point' pages have been refreshed and updated; to provide a more detailed explanation of the site and its ethos, as we are still concerned that people still don't quite 'get' the concept yet. For starters the Community Portal has been re-worked to provide a more detailed introduction to the site (and is now linked on the Front page as such). The improved portal continues to link to some of the most useful explanatory pages of the wiki; with many links adde…Read more >
With our recent Anniversary, we have been hard at work behind the scenes and have been rather secretive about what has been updated - and with the volume of things we have going on, it seems that we may have less of an Anniversary Update and more of an Anniversary Season, with many changes coming quickly over the next few weeks and months.
The time has now come for the first teasers of what has been going on, (though there will be much more to come later, and a lot of it is much more interesting). So without further ado, I give you our first offering of this Anniversary Season - the new Sixth game article - a detailed run-down of the potential for a new game.
Other touches that I can reveal now are that there are several reviews of existing artic…Read more >
It has now officially been 5 years since our first admin 'Zeromus' asked the inevitable question - "Why doesn't the Legacy of Kain have a wiki?" and the 'Legacy of Kain Wiki' was born.
Fast-forward 5 years and there have been many changes and improvements - particularly within the last two and a half years - and we hope we're now well on the way to becoming a valued, reliable and recognised Legacy of Kain resource.
As mentioned in previous updates, for about the last month we've been rather secretive about what has been going on and what we've been doing, but needless to say we have a lot of updates to go through... and it may take a little time to go through all that has been happening, So watch out because over the next few days and weeks …Read more >
Congratulations to the Legacy of Kain Wiki for reaching 1000 pages!Read more >
The Wiki's listing on Encyclopedia Gamia's Action-Adventure Portal has been updated with an Orange Star to reflect this. Best of luck!
A few minor LoK News items that have been slightly overlooked as we work toward our Anniversary:
Firstly Soul Reaver 2 has now been released on Gog.com , so anyone with a PC can now download the full game for a small fee.
On top of this Ardeth (of DC fame) has recently been working on restoring some of the content of the old SR2 Official Site, and most of its content is now recreated on Dark Chronicle.
Another item of note comes with the somewhat interesting near-future web-browser release of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Virtually no other details beyond the initial website as of yet ;including on pricing, requirements or whetherer our favourite Raziel and Kain character pack will feature, but we can but hope.
More actual updates to fo…

As tends to be usual for me, June is often a busy month in the real world, so I've had a few distractions; including the E3 event (btw, no LoK news, as expected), Euro 2012 and my own Thirtieth Birthday (so yes, my best present was from Danny Wellbeck, and I'll be avoiding getting thrown out of Bars or Taverns for about a year lol) . Besides my recent time-off to explore London's historic guttering, there have still been things going on around the site, but a few of these may be "Top Secret", with our 5th Anniversary coming up on July the 7th.
So, perhaps being deliberately enigmatic about what we're planning and doing, here's a vague round-up: -There have been a few additions to some of our Character pages, SR2 enemies continue to be updat…Read more >
I thought I'd wait until it was all over and the dust had settled before I blogged about this, but the E3 event has now finished and (obvious as it was always going to be) there was No News about Legacy of Kain and not even a mention...and given the situation, I'd frankly welcome another "we're not working on it" announcement to calm some down.
For those of us who actually try to report LoK news, it's been a testing time in the run-up to E3, primarily because there have actually been absolutely no LoK-related stories in any rumours, yet many have been reported and passed around - especially annoying since you can trace each one back and they all seem to have originated purely in non-industry 'comments sections' and mis-understood announcements…Read more >
Another deluge of updates this time.
By far the most numerous work has been in Images with a multitiude of new shots and files, that will eventually be added to pages (and in some cases already have). Most of these are in four major categories: SR1 weapon Icons, BO1 overland maps, SR2 bonus materials and Defiance bonus materials.
On the completed pages front, I've been continuing on through SR2 Enemies and have completed, referenced and added pictures for Greater Sluagh, Greater Thralls, Groundlings, Lightning Demons and Mutants, and begun work on the Sarafan Warrior Pikemen page. On top of this, Dubiel has completed and referenced the Elzevir the Dollmaker page (including new indoor maps), as well as working on some major updates to the Kain…Read more >
I'd better get this out of the way now before I lose track.
Dubiel has been doing a lot of work on Personnel creating new stubs (with basic infoboxes) for many of the series important crew members, including Richard Lemarchand, Amy Hennig, Denis Dyack, Chris Bruno, Daniel Cabuco, Seth Carus, Steve Ross, Riley Cooper, Kory Heinzen, Jacob Wendler, Glen A. Schofield, Andrew Bennett, Jim Hedges, Bret Robbins, Mike Ellis, Sam Newman, Rosaura Sandoval, Jason Bell, Kristoffer Larson, Isabelle Lemay, Mike Peaslee Greg Shaw, Chris Stone, Charlie Lapp, Caroline Trujillo and Jonathan Miller.
On top of this, Dubiel has done a large amount of work on Timelines and Eras; formalising our eras to match official timelines - In order, the eras are: Before Nos…Read more >
Following on from the 10th anniversary, there are further updates on the The Lost Worlds today.
The update continues Divine Shadow's Dark Prophecy analysis, examining the possible roles of Ariel and The Seer in the game.
There is also SR1 development news, with new guest author Raina Audron (who wrote our own preliminary articles on the Early and Later betas, alongside many other contributions to other fan-projects) contributing several articles comprising the most detailed comparison of Early Beta, Later Beta and Retail versions of the game thus far seen.
Other interesting items include some additions to the Early Story of SR1 from a pre-release brochure, contributed by Eidos Forums mod Umah Bloodomen. With the article also highlighting that in …Read more >
Just for anyone that missed it, the BO2 project is 'complete' (for the moment), and some appropriate promotion has been undertaken; so hello and welcome to any newcomers.
With BO2 down (and 'hands freed' from fiddly little content additions), I'm now moving onto the SR2 project and with the nature of the game and with prior organisational work, I'm expecting this to progress a lot quicker than BO2 did - Indeed, I've already started work on the SR2 Enemies category and have got three enemy variants; Acid demons, Black demons and Demon hunter attack dogs written, referenced and 'complete' already. Though my first call is going to be the SR2 enemies category, I'm also looking to dump some SR2 images I've captured, So I've added a load of images …Read more >
Most of the edits this time are minor housekeeping issues really, but I have essentially(bar a few minor details) finished the work I was doing on the Blood Omen 2 Project . This should mean that, with a few exceptions for the detailed overarching articles and exceedingly minor pieces(notably Janos, Kain, Nosgoth, the Pillars and the Hylden sub-races are without references) all enemies, terms, locations, levels, NPC's, bosses, characters, weapons, abilities etc should now be covered to a decent standard and with appropriate templates and references. I will be making some waves on forums with this news shortly, but I want to do some final housekeeping first.
Alongside this Dubiel has continued to standardise page titles and work has now begun …Read more >
Having finished the final Gallery organisation, Dubiel has continued with some much needed housekeeping - standardising page titles. This effectively means that many pages have been, or will be, moved to subtly different tiles, unfortunately resulting in a few broken links in the short term. Bear with us through this; it's messy but ultimately very necessary work (that is much easier to do now than when page counts number in the thousands)
I've been going through the 'final checks' of the BO2 pages - fixing links and images, adding images, templates, scrollboxes, categories, final references etc - the final polish as it were. I'm about half way through these checks and I've also taken the Traitor vampires page provided by Smijes08 and broug…Read more >
I have decided to stop editing until I have finished all of the games, which I just got. So, farewell my friends. (I'll still be snooping around a bit though. And maybe editing a bit)Read more >
Jake Pawloski has released the first episode of Lost Chronicle, fan web series on how Legacy of Kain should have ended. The first chapter explains Vorador's ressurection.Read more >
Lot of updates this time. Dubiel has been hard at work on refreshing and adding to Main Image Gallery - which now has loads more images including lots of concept art, promotional images, screenshots, rendered art etc etc (all classified for your convenience).Dubiel has also added a host of Legacy of Kain Music and appropriate stub pages for each, as well as beginning the difficult task of rewriting and referencing the Elder God page.
For my part, I've added a bit more to the Hylden (post-banishment) page, but my major work has been extensively reworking the Main [Blood Omen 2]] page in an effort to make it more 'portal'-like (though frankly it's become almost an analysis, but hopefully still useful in guiding people through to the categorie…Read more >
Take it with a roomful of salt, but half of the internet has exploded with speculation this morning following a wholly-unsubstantiated rumour from "a source" at gaming website VG247 that Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver will soon be receiving a reboot from Crystal Dynamics, replete with new art direction. No mention of returning characters, status in the series continuity, or anything specific at all.
We should probably take the time to recall an apparently-forgotten murmur which emerged about a year ago, when a guy named daverabbit reported something similar. Despite a few other hints which cropped up at the same time to substantiate the idea that a game would be announced at E3 2011, nothing happened and nothing was announced.
Contrary to this ne…Read more >
