As a huge and I mean HUGE LoK fan that has been googling LoK new game every 2 months for years I am more interested in the lore of this game then anything. Although it does look interesting and I will play it. So here is my question.... When in LoK timeline (yes I know that is confusing question given the game) does this take place. At what point is kain gone Mia. Would I be right in guessing it is after raziel was thrown into the abyss in soul reaver 1 but before he was resurrected in soul reaver 1. I do believe by the time he came back his clan had been wiped out. During that time the clans devolved like we see in this game although If that is the case who is leading raziel's clan in this game? It says the three generals are fighting for power so it implies that all three clans have a general... this is not taking into account time line changes due to the multiple events that took placed changing time. Thoughts? Opinions?

Yep you're correct :D the game takes place after Raziel was abyssed, shortly afterwards Kain heads off to the future to meet the wraith Raziel.

As for who leads the Razielim in his absence etc the best thing is if you have not done so already is to check out the Lore Blog posts on the site - here are the three Razielim ones linked for you…as these hold the answers to some of your questions :D

From the links above, I think that 'Nosgoth' starts around 100-200 years after Raziel was thrown into the abyss

Yeah, it's not been given any exact timings, but that would be around the ballpark figure.
