    I was playing Arcanum and had just been searching the Isle of Despair for clues as to where the Black Mountain Clan might have went.
    As I went to Ashbury by boat to then walk North to the Wheel Clan for finding the entrance in the mountain, I got interrupted by this apparition who says he is Arronax and is coming back and all of that junk (By no doubt you know what he says already).

    I know that this is completely normal since it is a significant part of the main story, so let's get straight to the point:

    After some hours, I had proceeded as usual and went to Tarant to escort the young 150 year old Elf from Qintarra, but about halfway I ran into this Mysterious Apparition AGAIN. *sigh* He told me exactly the same thing as the last time I ran into him, my party took some beating and then he disappeared.

    So why did he show up twice? Is there a risk of random encounters with him in a specific area, or is there something wrong with the game of mine?

    It's a glitch and not a feature. It has happened to me in the past quite randomly and only very rarely.

    Some say it's good luck.

    Hmm... I guess it is because it is supposed to be a random encounter as I met him att different places the first time I saw him in two different save games, the first one was in the Plains and the second time I saw him he was at The Wheel Clan entrance.
