1,747 articles covering the Land of Nosgoth since July 2007.
Although technically a pentalogy, the series is effectively made up of two duologies telling the separate stories of Kain (Blood Omen) and Raziel (Soul Reaver), with both culminating in Legacy of Kain: Defiance. The games have enjoyed critical success, and - despite their present dormancy - continue to be widely praised and highlighted for their high-quality voice acting, storytelling, and visuals.

This month's featured article
Dumah is a recurring character in the Legacy of Kain series, making appearances in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and Soul Reaver 2. One of the leading warrior inquisitors of the vampire-hunting Sarafan brotherhood in Nosgoth's early history, Dumah was himself raised as a vampire by Kain in the Soul Reaver era a millennium later, and served as a member of the Council until his death at the hands of human vampire hunters. On his return to Nosgoth as a wraith, Raziel pervaded the Ruined City and revived Dumah, only to destroy him utterly and consume his soul.
This month's featured medium
Texture of the 'Wheel of Fate' mural as seen in the Vampire Citadel in Legacy of Kain: Defiance. Prominently featuring the symbol of the Wheel of Fate, the mural depicted the Ancient vampires despair as the Blood curse cast them from the wheel, and their suicidal attempts to return to it. This mural was featured twice in Defiance, seen on the walls of the Earth forge and the Spirit forge entrance chamber where Kain first met the Elder God.
