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

Original text: Welcome back. Okay, first and most obviously you may have noticed a change on the front page and my usually humble update blog has taken centre stage on the main Legacy of Kain Wiki front page. Let me reassure you that this is nothing more than a temporary measure as the front page is redesigned - normal service will be resumed in a little while.
So now summer has faded and winter is fast drawing in what has been happening in the world of Legacy of Kain and the wiki? The short answer is it's been busy and we can always use extra hands to click 'edit' and add to stub articles.

In other news Denis Dyack has broken his silence on LoK and spoke about it and his attitudes towards the series in an interview here.
In terms of wiki-work, there has been so much going on it's hard to adequately summarise. As you can see, there is some major redesign work currently in progress on the front page, but a number of other areas have had additions, expansions and changes of their own. For starters there is a new Category for Narrative influences, containing stubs for acknowledged real world inspirations and themes of the series. Our Sources category has also had several additions and updates as we endeavour to preserve old material. Our History categories have also had a major rearrangement, with Eras, Timelines, Paradoxes, Events and Factions all becoming sub to the main History category and with Events in particular overhauled and having many new additions including the Summon…Read more >

Bonus materials were a set of materials from the development of Soul Reaver 2 and Legacy of Kain: Defiance that were partially unlocked through play and fully awarded to players upon completion of the appropriate game. Bonus materials comprised of a number of images, audio excerpts and videos related to the development of the series as a whole, providing a backdrop to the conception and implementation of the Legacy of Kain series.
A rendered promotional image from Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver depicting the wraith Raziel on a ledge apparently preparing for combat. Behind Raziel, his shadow casts a fully winged angelic silhouette, reflecting the fallen angel theme of the title and the inspiration of Paradise Lost. Based on an earlier piece of concept art conceived for the Shifter project, the image and its predecessor would both reappear in later Bonus materials.
