If you've tried to send me a message via that page in the last months, there's a good chance I never saw it. As a workaround until I find a new provider, please use the social media contact information on the Contact page and I can send you my personal email address that way if necessary. We've still got more fun stuff in store from those prototypes as well. More on that later. Here is another batch of content related to the ongoing series of updates covering material from prerelease versions of Blood Omen and Soul Reaver.
There are fewer additions by number in this update, but only because I'm trying to get them posted more frequently than once per month. I still have an enomrous amount of material to share. Today, I'm happy to present part 2 of the ongoing series of updates focusing on content recently recovered from the prerelease builds of Blood Omen and Soul Reaver.
There is still much more to come :. I'm very happy to announce the addition of a huge amount of new information to the site, as well as several other key fan sites. This year, a small group of fans including myself were able to obtain multiple prerelease builds of Blood Omen and Soul Reaver , some with significant differences versus the released versions of those games.
Many of these builds were acquired from Gh0stBlade , who you may know from his posting of videos of alpha builds of Soul Reaver on YouTube some years ago. Others were obtained from multiple sources who would rather remain anonymous, but we are all extremely grateful to everyone involved. This was a truly worldwide effort, and hopefully it's not over yet. If you are in possession of a prerelease build of a game in the series which you are interested in selling or donating, please get in touch with me using the Contact form.
The Ancient's Den and The Legacy of Kain Wiki have extensive additional coverage of this newly-uncovered material, so please check out those sites as well. Blood Omen reached the 21st anniversary of its release last month.
Appropriately enough, the prerelease versions of that game contain so much deleted material that it will be weeks or months before I've fully detailed it. I was genuinely surprised to discover how significantly that game had changed even in the five months before it was released.
One of the most exciting initial discoveries was a playable version of The Chess Match , which is now documented in video form in that article. This is probably the most well-known example of material which was removed from the game before release. However, it is now also known that this was one of the smallest changes to the game.
Even though I don't have as much information about Soul Reaver to disclose today, I'm at least as excited about presenting the following newly-discovered content as I am for the Blood Omen material:.
Again, please keep an eye on this space. I'm already aware of numerous additional material from these versions of both games, and just need to document it properly. There is a lot more to come. One more update to Soul Spiral. This one includes a large volume of filename-lookup data related to Soul Reaver 2 :.
This is probably going to be the last Soul Spiral update for at least a few weeks. My next big goal with it is to rewrite some of the low-level code which is making it difficult to support games based on engines other than Gex. I've been revisiting the Dreamcast versions of Soul Reaver , and finally figured out how the filename hashing works in them. It's different from every other version of the game, as well as the sequels.

Asia Global. The gates lead to a room with another word wall, this with the second part of the shout Battle fury : Valor. Also in this room are five Draugrs , one of which is a Deathlord with the other half of the Amethyst Claw. Search the chest for loot. Tharston mentions that he thinks that there is a Dragon priest 's sarcophugus nearby. One of the Draugr coffins leads to a passage.
Follow this to the end and activate the chain. This leads to the original chamber with the cage. Open the cage by using the two halves of the Amethyst Claw on the handles. Pull the handle and proceed immediately over the blue blocks which appear.
The blocks disappear quickly, so you will fall if you stop. Once over the blocks, the blocks become permanent and Tharston follows.
Proceed through the now opened gate. Ignore the wooden door on the left. It is locked from the other side. Go to the end of the passage. Jump down into the water and defeat the Corrupted Shades below. There are fifteen shades in total. Go back where you landed in the water.
Open the door and go back to Tharston. Activate the Handle on the right. Follow the blue blocks. The door at the end of the passageway is locked. Go right to the next opening and activate the Handle there. Again, the door at the end of the next corridor is locked. Go to the next drop and activate the Handle. But the truth is that the reaction to the finale was much more mixed than its reputation suggests.
With an island that was seemingly untethered from time and space, and all the time-hopping the series did, Lost itself often told a story that was out of time. There, in the finale, Desmond Henry Ian Cusick and Hurley Jorge Garcia help all the principal Lost characters reconnect and convene in a church, where Jack, with the help of his father, Christian John Terry , realizes he died on the island and moves on to the next spiritual plane.
They were especially moved by the events that take place in the flash-sideways, where, one by one, each major character is suddenly awakened to memories of the island, often when someone who also had been there touches them. Those moments, in which physical contact sparks recollection of a life left behind, got me choked up for a similar reason.
MCV Develop. Once the combination of the rings has been correctly determined, just open the door as normal. With the Neverseen still unbeaten and in Legacy, readers are wondering how Sophie could possibly beat the Neverseen. The women board the train and fight through Asav's men. The game's Legacy Of The Lost, Asav, is portrayed by Usman Ally. In the wake of Book 7's shocker ending, Sophie Foster is trying to come to terms with her LEGACY -- which includes being "unmatchable" with Legacy Of The Lost potential elvin partner because her biological parents are unknown,and apparently want to keep it that way. On the whole I found the Team Valiant arc a waste of time that added very little and only served to underscore that the side characters are so neglected that they could not be intergraded back into the story without the assistance of a convoluted plot point, Legacy Of The Lost. And that happens again and again.
