    Maybe, depending on your race, age, and char. backround, you could start in different locations at the beginning of the game? For example; You are a barbarian Orc; so your game starts at a barbarian campsite on the Morbihan Plains. From there, you get to do some exclusive location quests (maybe a coming-of-age ritual or somthing?) and then are sent to Tarant on some mission. Tarant would be the auto-start point if you did not choose a specific backround. Please comment on this idea.

    Sounds like a great idea to me. As say a Dark Elf, you could start in T'snang. Or as a Grey Mountain Elf, a little mountain village in the....GreyMountains.
    I would like to be able to have different ages..and have the dialogue reflect your age..

    Perhaps choosing the "Raised by Trolls" background you automatically forfeit your character's normal starting point and instead start in a troll camp.

    "Raised by Wolves" could mean you start out in the wilderness with few possessions, but you automatically get 1 or 2 wolf followers (like dog).

    Overall I think that is a great idea :) , especially with the background thing too. There's tons more possibilities, but I can't seem to think of any right now. :/

    If this were to happen, how your char enters the story would also have to be different.

    One night, two digs.

    I have a question stang4me2… what the hell is Stang? Other than short for mustang. And if that is what you meant do you mean the horse or the car?

    You know gang-bang, you might not have realized this, but Arcanum 2 will never come. So don't dig.

    Even if Arcanum 2 would ever come, don't dig.

    it's both the car and part of my last name

    and by the way the reason i apparently did some digging was because i haven't been looking at the date of the last post, otherwise i would have just left it alone

    and are you and Xz following me, you two are like the only ones replying to me

    They just happen to be around when you have just posted... OR they noticed that there was a new post around and when they checked, voilà: it was you again!

    being offended by a mire statement, or anything at all, is a sign of weakness, that is the last thing i would let happen
