Legends of the Iconoclast (otherwise known as LOI) is a Blood add-on developed by Dwayne Anderson featuring a mixture between the original game's themes and aspects of medieval fantasy. In terms of total number of maps, it is by far the largest custom add-on for Blood, eclipsing its nearest rivals Bloody Pulp Fiction and Death Wish.

Plot[edit]

Tchernobog, a former soothsayer of King Iconoclast IX, uses the powers of dark magic to kill his former king and steals the sword of darkness. Then he places a curse on the people of Iconoclast, with the only way for the place to be saved is if an ancient legend comes true.

Five mystic swords, including the sword of darkness, must combine to become one. One thousand years later, Caleb is captured by the Cabal and is taken to the realm of the Iconoclast, and the only way for Caleb to escape is to fulfil the ancient legend. Additional

Remake[edit]

"In the final year of World War I, a new army was rising to power. This army, a religious military organization known as the Scourge, founded by a mysterious man named Garibaldi, had members from all across the world and other dimensions. Whether they were killers and murderers fleeing justice, or simple men and women seeking to find their place, anyone could join, promised glory and power. The Scourge made their base in a unknown dimension, free from the spying eyes of outsiders and non-members. Among its members was a young man named Logan, the son of a gunsmith. Together with his love Katrina, Logan was one of the Scourge's most skilled fighters and sharpshooters. But when Katrina discovered that the Scourge, under Garibaldi's orders, were waging war against mankind, slaughtering the innocent to build an army of the undead to conquer all dimensions, she couldn't bring herself to be part of the madness. When she tried to resign, Garibaldi had her executed for her treason. Griefstricken and enraged, Logan vowed never to forgive Garibaldi or the Scourge. When the Scourge invade his home city, Logan seeing this as his chance for retribution, determined to save his world, decides to fight back and somehow seal the Scourge from Earth and prevent further invasions. But his mission and crusade will take him back to the Scourge's homeworld where he'll discover the truth about Garibaldi, and a terrible secret his former master has been keeping. His journey will take him through forests, caverns, mountain cliffs, forsaken towns, the Scourge's cathedral, and finally through a monolithic castle, as he fights for revenge, redemption, and a chance to give meaning to the death of his beloved."

In order to commemorate the project's tenth anniversary in 2011, work on a expanded and fixed up version is currently under way by its original author. A blog detailing the new project was also created by the games creator.

Scourge of Humanity[edit]

The first part of the remake is entitled "Scourge of Humanity" and is set near the end of the First World War. A powerful religious military organization known as the Scourge is waging war on mankind, led by a mysterious man named Garibaldi, whose goal is humanity's extermination. Logan, a Romanian gunsmith and former soldier of the Scourge, who turned his back on the organization after his love Katrina discovered the true purpose of the Scourge and was executed when she went against Garibaldi, fights back when his home city is invaded, seeing this as his chance for retribution, only to strand himself back in the Scourge's home dimension. Here, he discovers sinister secrets about Garibaldi. Enlisted by the wizard Murlock to save the land, Logan embarks on an epic adventure where he must fight his way through Garibaldi's castle, recover the elemental swords, rescue a cursed prince and princess, and ultimately defeat Garibaldi to save mankind and give meaning to the death of his beloved Katrina.

Scourge of Humanity was released on April 15, 2012.
