- "This was once the most academic of cities, housing some of the most prestigious universities in all of Nosgoth. While I would not weep over lost tomes, I detested the sight of scars left upon the world at the hands of the Nemesis."
- ―Kain — Listen (file info)[src]
Stahlberg was South of the Land of the Nemesis and was once the home of Nosgoth's Universities. When Kain arrived searching for Elzevir the Dollmaker, he found Stahlberg destroyed by the Legions of the Nemesis and it's citizens massacred. He again came close to Stahlberg when passing along nearby the Plains of Blood in the Battle of the Last Stand.
After Kain changed history and eliminated the Nemesis, he passed through Stahlberg again; this time it was pristine, restored to its fromer glory. However Stahlberg provivded Kain with his first hints that something was wrong - The enormous Nemesis statue was shattered and Kain was assailed by new vampire hunters, To the South of Stahlberg he heard cheers and the scent of Blood; discovering Vampire hunters and it's execution of Nosgoth's final vampire (except Kain) - Vorador.
