Greetings to you! I've just made a fantastic observation in the wonderful city of Tarant! It seems her respectable guards patrolling her streets at every hour, are in fact named! Whoever said they are 'generic' ought to reconsider their remark. Behold! The man appears to be but a guard. Unremarkable, generic, providing the intellectual and sociable mind no interest. He appears to be just like any other guard in Tarant. Still, they are men of the preservation of order and law. But what is this? After getting into a conversation, we learn that his name is in fact Tarant Officer. Mr. Officer has thus revealed to us his name, amazingly without ever speaking it out! Is this some sort of tomfoolery? Nay! Should one speak to this guard of Tarant, one will always read his label with the newly revealed name, Tarant Officer. Who would've ever thought these 'generic' guards bore names? Okay, so I am aware of this being trivial and hardly a problem with Arcanum, but it occurred to me today that every guard in Tarant (save Jared) is marked as "Human Guard", before speaking to them, after which they become marked as "Tarant Officer". Has anyone else noticed this whilst playing? I'm at an early point in the game, whence I am supposed to locate the residence of a certain Gilbert Bates. My character is an evil and abhorred abomination, which you can see at the guard's (Mr. Officer's) initial reaction of 37. The character in question is an half-elf, negatively aligned and not especially beautiful at BE 9. He made a pact with the devil and sold his soul, giving himself +20 Magickal Aptitude and -20 alignment. Has anyone else encountered this? Does it depend upon at what point in the game one currently is? Is it upon alignment, or any other factor? WHY IS THIS IMMENSELY IMPORTANT PROBLEM OCCURRING TO ME? Aaaarrrghh!
