Faking it: Understanding the Legacy of Kain timeline

[Kerrik52 embarked on a herculean effort to condense thirty-seven books' and ninety-four video games' worth of lore into an easy-to-read blog - all in an effort to give you, the plebeian soul you are, a basic knowledge of theLegacy of Kain series. Did it work? I read it, and the series can quite easily be summed up as, 'Giant Squid is rarely pleased.' Great work, Kerrik! This is part of our Bloggers Wanted series from August.

The Legacy of Kain series is widely regarded as one of the greatest stories ever told in video games - and for good reason. The writing and acting is outstanding. But that story is somewhat complicated, being centered around time-traveling vampires and all. The timelines that bind the story together are awfully complex and makes it really hard to understand the plot in full.

But fear not, for after extensive research, that may or may not have been fueled by the finest third-grade narcotics that $5.67 can buy, I have managed to compile and explain the whole thing. Enjoy.
