The 2 maps that I think could be made to work in the game are The Necropolis and the Silenced Cathedral.

"The Silenced Cathedral was apparently built as a weapon against Kain's burgeoning vampire empire. It's complex arrangement of pipes channelled airflow with such force that when a musical note (of the right frequency) was played through them, it was deadly to vampires who came near. At some point in Kain's empire, the Cathedral was attacked, its inhabitants slain and the weapon disabled. Soon afterward, Zephon and his progeny moved in using the Cathedral as their home. Eventually various vampire worshipping humans also moved in."

Took that from Legacy of Kain wiki. Anyway the Cathedral was originaly going to be a much larger zone that would lead to another ending for the game were you would play the weapon and kill all the vampires.But all of that was cut from the game, the reason this could be used though is Valeholm was a town that was going to be used in the games also but was cut. My point is Valeholm is now a map in Nosgoth so this could also work. It would have to be during the time the Zephonim clan lived their but Im sure somthing could be done.


Second map: Necropolis
"This charnel house bore the unmistakable marks of Melchiah’s clan. To what depths had our dynasty plummeted, if these ghouls were the descendants of my high-born brother? Were they so debased as to recruit fledglings from the desiccated corpses here interred?"
―Raziel —

The Necropolis is a giant cemetery like area that The Melchiah used to feed on corpes and raise vampires.(which in vampire terms that was disgraceful even though the lieutenants were raised from the dead but whatever.) But at somepoint form what the wiki said that Humans or vampire hunters took back the area. My point is this was during the soul reaver era so would work in game lore and could also be during the time the humans took it back over so like the war that they fought to take it back over.

The Silenced Cathedral is visible in the distance of the Crucible. It's probably already planned. As for the necropolis...Eh. If they can make a graveyard interesting...

For the Necropolis I imagine a massive indoor graveyard that has been converted into almost an assembly line for the mass production of Melchahim, complete with endless rows of graves that serve as the incubation areas for the Melchahim fledglings and evolving Melchahim as well; and mausoleums that now serve as the labs where the twisted research and experiments are performed.

I'd definitely love more maps. Especially ones as unique as these. A lot of the maps are just abandoned city sections. What could be done for a more foresty nature map?

I'd like to see the Termogent forest dying due to the Pillars effect on the health of the land. Maybe the ruins of Vorador's courtyard and a memorial to him would be somewhere in that area. The swamp is there too, so it might be a good place for the Rahabim to have claimed as their territory.

BTW, I think Eric mentioned he'd like to do the Necropolis if SR1 areas are added. The outside was a graveyard, but the inside was a great meat grinding factory.

A Vorador statue...Yes.

And a nightmarish meat factory would be something...Though that would make me long for environmental hazards...

I do find these interesting...i love Freeport due too it's watery hazard. It's too bad it's only a hazard for vampires now...
Back then you were able to throw human in the water (Tyrant's throw), it was quite fun and entertaining. It was a neat counter for dock camping too...so sad they take it out :(
