Hello, it's been a while. I am beginning to play Arcanum again. The patched version with the official patch, the unofficial patch, and other stuff Drog made to make the game as much as it was originally intended, and fixing lots of bugs. My question: I am wondering if the Arbalah and bandits quests (early in the game) can be finished in a way that allows you to complete them but allows Arbalah to be alive. For example, could you not finish the quests until you find a DOT item, and a resurrection scroll. First do Arbalah's quest, and kill Fahrkus and get the artifact. Turn it in to Arbalah. Then drop the DOT item near him so he picks it up, wait until he dies. Go back to the crash site, and turn in the quest to Brehgo. Then go back and resurrect Arbalah, that way he does not stay dead. I am purely thinking about this to see if anyone has tried it. My thinking is that your character has to 'actively' kill him, so the above strategy won't work. Still, it always bothered me to kill that character.
