    So arguably our main thing – or should have been our main thing - was our 10th anniversary in July... erm just before the last update actually.... Don't worry if you didn't notice it, to be honest we didn't either and there wasn't much to shout about at the time, but take the completed magazine archive and the ongoing work on the sources archive as a token of appreciation and gratitude.

A Legacy of Kain: Defiance texture of one of the Heart Seeker murals in Vorador's Mansion. The Mansion featured three spears associated with different states of Raziel - the 'human' Heart Seeker, 'vampire' Blood Drinker and 'Wraith' Soul Stealer.
