Legacy of Kain Chronology & Timeline of Media

TIMELINE OF THE LEGACY OF KAIN GAMES AND RELATED MEDIA

The years within the timeline are presented chronologically to the protagonist and antagonist’s story, not to the actual order that the events occurred within Nosgoth’s history. I have ordered them AK after Joseph Dowland’s comprehensive timeline on his blog, Aradiel. AK stands for ‘After Kain’. Given the nature of the series’ timehopping there will be reference to BK, ‘Before Kain’. This is explained better on Dowland’s timeline and presented gorgeously on his interactive timeline.

The first Blood Omen game. An isometric Zelda-style RPG and a fucking incredible game. Best in the series.
