Plains = Battlefield Edit

Now that I think about it... are we sure that the Plains of Blood is the area where the Battle of the Last Stand took place? Although it fits, I can't find a source to prove it. --LoK-Aevum 18:02, March 10, 2012 (UTC)

Good point. I think I was pretty sure at the time, but now I can't find anything as concrete as I'd like; lots of little supporting stuff, but no direct evidence. I do think on balance it's pretty likely that was what PoB was intended to be, but as you say I can't be 100% on it.Baziel 02:27, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree. I believe it probably was the Plains of Blood (the only other "unused" location on the BO1 map besides the Great Southern Lake), and it fits in most ways. But there is no source to confirm it. Gameplay geography doesn't help, because when Kain uses the time-streaming device, he is at the Nemesis garrison just south of Stahlberg (where Vorador is later murdered and Moebius is fought), and he had been travelling directly north all that time, so he is never far north enough in Nosgoth for it to be the Plains (unless it is a mapmaker screw-up as with Avernus City). There is a problem there too, though, because there's simply not enough forest south of Stahlberg to accommodate the battlefield, it's all mountainous... bah, I don't know, a wizard did it! :P --LoK-Aevum 09:43, March 13, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, when I'd looked into it before I thought the geography of the main maps (with the 'PoB' clearing and it's forest almost directly between the Land of the Nemesis and Willendorf) would be significant, as well as the inaccessible 'sealed' nature of the locations (and what is used). But you're right about the direct 'in-game geography' stuff not matching (though I must say, sometimes with BO1 I'm just not sure how much weight to put on the actual 'in-game geography', mostly because of the way Shrykull revealed it's been put together). Nothing quite matches as it should; so yeah, a wizard (or ham-fisted developer) did it lol! Obviously, if we can't confirm then the page might require a little work (probably moving stuff to the BotLS article) as it's all about the Last Stand battlefield currently.Baziel 20:43, March 13, 2012 (UTC)
