I'm sure this has been brought up both on Arcanum AND Fallout fan-sights BUT. I would like to see ether a Arcanum where there was a mage war causing a Fallout-like condition with magick and gothic steampunk in pace of 1600s future-tech style. one possible time storyline could be that some Vendigroth-ians hid in shelters when Vendigroth was destroyed. coming out MANY years later, or just sending the player out. another possible time storyline could be that some time after Arcanum 1 the mages kept getting more and more bitter over tech gaining more and more influence, causing a few hotheads to trigger the Fallout setting. (both of those possibility need the player to start in a shelter that the race he chose would have had access to. unless the player started in a shelter that would have accepted all races.
