[ Legacy of Kain: The Lost Worlds ]

Opening the Sounding Pipes

article by Ben Lincoln

 

After defeating Kain (see The Final Battle with Kain), Raziel would have used The Amplified Reaver to fight his way through an onslaught of increasingly desperate vampires, to The Pinnacle of The Silenced Cathedral and there opened its sounding pipes. Unleashing the power of the Cathedral on the world of Nosgoth would have purged it of the entire vampire population, leaving Raziel the only surviving member of his race.

It is uncertain how the gameplay for this last part of the game would have been structured. There is a set of three sounding pipes accessible in the retail version of the game which can be used to kill the two Zephonim vampires in the same room. It seems likely that the original ending would have played out similarly, but on a much larger scale.
