Well you never know, you do sometimes get the odd special person with a grand project in mind and yet they don't know the first thing about computers!

I get the feeling that writing this wikia is a pet project so the size of the audience reached is probably not much of a factor.

I'd agree that Arcanum is an obscure game, but not a bad one or an inferior one even compared to present standards.

Still working on this; wow this is going to be alot of work. But yeah as stated before, it's more of a pet project; it's understood that not many people are going to see it, but it's noted that I have replayed this game dozens of times and don't see why it shouldn't have a wikia.

For any of those interested in progress (not that much, haha) click here:

Few are those who enjoy a game of this vintage.

Why don't you flee this beautiful, utopic environment for one full of newer, more cliche games with half the plot and lots of blood and pretty graphics?

Good job, now that you've actually set it up I'm sure more people will contribute. Gamebanshee is probably the best place to check for reference material, though bear in mind all the stuff on that website isn't correct so you might want to do some double checking first.

Just for a start, http://mikesrpgcenter.com/arcanum/ can be good for info reference, also it contains detailed maps and some other nice stuff.
Hope it helps.

Drog, your input is great and everything but your opinion isn't all that needed here.

To be honest I don't know how you haven't been banned from this forum yet.

Cheers! Yeah there's a few good websites out there, it's just the matter of moving all the information onto the wikia without it looking like a total mess.
:lol:

Arcanum more like <pun>

the game is so antiquated that you can safely call it obtuse.

Hey drog, why can't you just leave this group of "retrograde and antiquate" people and go do those "marvelous" things you do, if you're here is because you like arcanum, but if you want to whine, go with mama.

You're a canned shit! See, now I'm as good as coming up with insults and comebacks as you are.

Don't mind Drog. He's a bit irritable at times.

And he isn't banned out of respect for the mods he did for the community. He more-or-less reinvented the game.

And don't forget staying alive just to spite people. Even after two strokes and cancer, mine's still got the strength to be the same old bastard he's always been.

Yeah, those old wackos, one stroke, one brain attack, and a useless arm, yet he still rides his Harley at 78!

So you're giving him respect despite that he doesn't respect anyone else here. When he was still modding, I could see it. Now he's trolling.

I really want to contribute to this, whenever I decide not to play games instead.

My half-assed support will hopefully blossom into full-fledged support. I like contributing to the knowledge of this game, so I will probably get around to it again.

You guys realize, by the way, that there's actually more to this website than just the forum? If you go to the main page, there's information there regarding Arcanum. You can use that just as readily as you might use Mike's or Gamespot. Just saying...


...and if all our shit is out of date and broken, you can inform me, and I'll put in the change requests.

I remember some errors I stumbled upon on our main page. Can go through it and suggest corrections some time soon.

I wish I was a few years younger, there is talk of a free laptop for all secondary school students system being introduced and apparently to keep costs down it'll be open source meaning a whole generation is going to be exposed to Linux instead of Windows.


Under DER all schools are already required to provide 1 device per senior secondary student - in many cases this means a take-home device.

It's not as simple as just jumping ship to Open Source -- all the infrastructure is M$ oriented and has been for years; the amount of work (and hence cost) involved in shifting to linux would be astronomical -- think about retraining all IT staff for a start. I don't think it'll happen in the short-term.

It would make my day if it did happen mind you, but I'm not expecting anything less than a half-arse solution for 5+ years. Especially with DER finishing.
