    Lorek sounds suspiciously like Lorkhan, the dwarf robot god in the Elder Scrolls universe.

    You're saying you haven't actually finished Arcanum yet?

    Is it the usual anxiety halfway through the game that somehow trying out a different character concept would be even more awesome?

    Yup. My game save files are all titled "this guy won't last" and "WHY CAN'T I FINISH THIS FUCKING GAME" or something very similar.

    You have to take a very deep breath, focus yourself, say "goosfraba" a few times and realise that there will still be an Arcanum on your computer even if you finish it.

    Now I understand your choice of location.

    It actually took me YEARS to finish Arcanum. I started in 2001 and played through about 50-75% of the game. I think somewhere past the wheel clan. But then my motivation in the plot fizzled. In about 2005 I jumped back in and kept pushing onward, just so I could see how the game finished. I'm sure I didn't see many of the side quests, and I didn't do anything with the shrines/gods.

    I am ashamed to say the farthest I got in Planescape: Torment is right outside the morgue. I didn't find the morgue very interesting. But after all the ballyhoo about how great the story is (and I very much love a good story) I feel I MUST replay the game and see it through to the end.

    My favorite plot hook is still 'find the water chip or we're all fragged' :lol:

    The first time I played the game it took me a while to beat. The second time I played it (which was a few months ago) I beat it in about 2 weeks :D :lol:

    While I'm normally just as indecisive as the rest of you lot (IWD2 has never progressed beyond the monastery even though I've made several serious attempts to finish it over the past three or so years), but Arcanum was actually different. I did try out a few character concepts, usually not further than Tarant just to get the feel of the game, but then I created Baltazar Stormhammer, the half-ogre battlemage I beat the game with.

    Unfortunately, he had the "Ran Away With The Circus" background and thus couldn't get the 18 WP required for Disintegrate and Teleport, spells I was DYING to try out. :D

    Oooh, very good, Vorak - full points for 3 (Dark Elf already got 1); half points for 4; goose-egg for 1.

    I meant before that for #4.
    #7 is wrong. Where did the train come from (i.e. the line)?

    1 full point for rroyo.

    I have no idea what #10 is because I haven't gotten that far! DAMMIT IT'S EVEN MARKED EASY

    By the time I found this board, I was already on character #3. It was initially an honest location statement, now it's an ironic disclosure at my inability to get far in this game.
