New Articles, Suggestions Ideas[edit source]



Accuracy and Links (external)[edit source]

I've started some major editing to this wiki. I feel it needs to be better presented and linked and to be much more accurate, and canon based. I have added links to the main well-known Legacy of Kain sites to try to ensure editors check their facts before posting, but still,there is far too much speculation and opinion. Having looked through the pages, there are a lot that contain fan-art and fan-fiction, which I don't think really has any place on a wiki. I am unsure of whether to delete these pages outright, or to create a fan-section link from the main page which we can put all this stuff in. I am frankly worried that if we put a fan-section there, it will only encourage the problem. What do people think of this?

I have also created a Template:Fandom to put on these pages, so casual visitors can tell Fanon from Canon.Baziel 18:45, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

New Pages[edit source]

If you would like to suggest some new pages to be added or that are missing put them here:

Ash Village
Avernus
Oracle's Caves
Necroplois
Sanctuary (BO2)
The Hylden City

Kain's Mountain Retreat

The Oracle's caves

The Razielim City

Sanctuary of The Clans

Human Citadel

Lighthouse

Tomb of the Sarafan

Turelim Clan territory

Timeline years(-500,-50,200 AK,400AK etc)

New Front Page Categories and Links (internal)[edit source]

If you would like to suggest ways to link the pages of this wikia together, put them here:

I've started to flesh out the front page with links to categories listing Character, Locations, Weapons, Items and Spells. I plan to add sections for Enemies and a link to minor characters from the main characters page (for people like the Tapster etc)

In addition, to the proposed fandom section above, I think we also need a section for 'deleted and unfinished materials' (I'll come up with a better name) to link pages such as Sabre and HMCS Bitter which clearly aren't fandom, as they are developer created, but as they were removed (for whatever reason) aren't quite canon either. I am somewhat reluctant to do this because the owner of The Lost Worlds is very much against people copying from his research. This is however a large and well known part of the LOK mythos, that we will have to address at some stage, since there were 'deleted materials' pages here long before I started editing.Baziel 19:08, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

Butterfly Lord[edit source]

Hi,
I'm wondering if anyone with ready access to a PC version of Soul Reaver could take a screenshot of the Butterfly Lord mural. Apparently it's in the Fire Glyph area, somewhere in the room with pillars which you reach after swimming through the water in Raziel's Clan Territory to get there. I'm going to put together articles on Chris Bruno, Amy Hennig, Dan Cabuco, Denis Dyack, etc and, well, since Chris is the Butterfly Lord himself... --LoK-Aevum 13:42, July 3, 2010 (UTC)
