SpellForce: Shaikan Cycle

SpellForce: Shaikan Cycle is a trilogy of novels written by Uschi Zietsch based on the SpellForce series and released on 2006. They serve as a prequel to both The Shadow Wars and The Order of Dawn.


The trilogy chronicles the life of Goren Windwhisperer, a Shaikan and the previous Soul Carrier, and his adventures before and during The Convocation Wars. The trilogy also explores the origins of Janus Malacay in depth.


Due to legal issues between the author and Phonemic Games the novels are not part of the official canon. Legal issues aside, the trilogy contains certain amounts of lore breaks and retcons.

Below is a list of the inaccuracies, separated by the books. While a few of these points are theoretically possible as they haven't been explored before, due to the general inaccuracy, those would have to be separated from the works at large, thus compromising their integrity.
