Now, I've always come to know the guy in Steinchencroe stirring his pot as 'Irmok the Mad' but I can't for the life of me remember where I got that name from. I can't find that name in any FAQs or any other official sources so where did that name come from? :confused: Anyone care to enlighten me?

Could you be a bit more specific? I can't understand your grammar.

I believe that the name's origins in Legacy of Kain fandom can be traced back to Nosgoth.net (http://www.nosgoth.net). 'Irmok the Mad' is identified by name in their BO1 Script (http://www.nosgoth.net/Blood_Omen/dialogue.htm).
Nosgoth.net was the first major fansite for LoK, and I'm pretty sure that Cybor and Tenaya were in contact with people who worked on the game. There's a fair chance that they named the madman 'Irmok' in the script because they had that infomation from a Blood Omen team member, or they may have just made it up. Without asking them, it's impossible to know. Whatever, Nosgoth.net - as a frequently-visited and much loved fansite - has likely influenced LoK fans to accept this name, whether it's actually canon or not.

Ah yes, I remember now it was from Nosgothic Realm and thanks for the information, Ardeth. :)
