    OK, the majority of this stuff will screw up the game big time, if it ever gets made.

    So, we MOD IT!

    You could call it something like - 'Go Go Super Happy Arcanum!!!' or the like.

    What kind of a name is that?

    Hey, something came to mind... Someone should make a signature that says "Go go, American Pi" and have the front of the movie with a pi symbol on the pie.

    *Minor Spoiler for one quest*

    Has anyone done the "A Mysterious Affair" Quest in Tarant? It was an X-files type thing. In the quest you find out about the Gnome experiments to try to create bodyguards. One of them was a breeding program to try to breed Orcs and Elves. Only two specimens were successfully bred. So it seems that Orcs and Elves can't breed easily.

    To the above: I have never played that quest. Where do you find it?

    To the directly above: I think those ideas are great! I would love to be a ghost. Ghosts could turn invisible and stuff, right?

    nbrosz,

    *Spoiler*

    There is a half-orc by Steamrail Station G will ask you to find a man and give him a message that he is looking for him. You find the guy at the Wellington Gentlemen's Club. I would recommend leaving your followers outside. It is a fairly long and in-depth quest so I'll let you figure the rest out on your own... ;)

    *spoiler* I know that one. Finding the twin skulls, right? Well, I found them, but I couldn't find the contact I needed to deliver them to. In Black Root, I think.

    Are there two breeding programs, or are you thinking of humans and ogres? I know that they considered (or maybe tried) and rejected breeding half-orcs due to their temperament, but considering that they're aiming for strong creatures I doubt they'd breed an elf instead of a human.

    While we're at it, how about beholders? Or gorgons? Or ents? Or any number of other things that don't exist in the world of Arcanum and which are extremely antisocial anyway? Or better yet, real dragons! Of course, they'd have to scale up the view some . . .

    The first breeding program was to breed orcs with elves but they found that elves and orcs could not be bred that easily. There were only two successes. The skulls that you were sent to find was theirs. If I remember right the reason they tried breeding elves with orcs was at the time technology had not been in anyone’s hands other then the dwarves. So they were trying to breed a fighter that had the natural aptitude towards magic. After the failures of the elf/orc breeding program and the emergents of technology made the gnomes look into other options. They ended up picking a half-ogres breeding program.

    OK, so elves and orcs won't breed. I reckon you could breed half-elves and half-orcs, to make some hideous thing...

    2 parts Human,
    1 part Elf,
    and 1 part Orc! Perfect!

    its unlogical ocs and elvenc ant breed, but oh well, you can always blame some sorta magic for it :razz:

    hm.... hybrd-hybrids... that'd be funny. Why havent the gnomes figured this out themselves? :p

    Well two things are the same species if they can interbreed and have viable offspring

    Half-elves and half-orcs both have genitalia... hopfully or else I will delete my character now.

    So elves are the same species as humans and so are orcs

    So orcs and elves are the same species

    That's probly why they call them RACES

    If ll the 'races' are the same species, then you can have a half-halfling (quarter-ling) and half ogre... would that make a human? heh heh...

    So i don't see why - other than video game logic - why orcs and elves can't breed...


    So yeah, another example of funkey video game logic

    more races
    Vampires
    Werewolves
    Angel kin
    Devil kin
    Golems
    Elements
