    I personally would like to see how interesting it would be to play in the age of legends but what do YOU all think?

    I'm all for the Age of Legends idea. Not only does the prequel open a whole lot of nice possibilites (such as mightier spells and Vendigroth tech), but it also removes a problem (I believe it was labyrinthian who brought this up - whoever it was, feel credited) - namely, would Arcanum still exist to see a sequel? You could decide to destroy the world with Kerghan you know.

    ehm, thats no problem, since the arcanum2 does not have to have anything to do with how you beat the game.

    On the contrary it could, my hard-rocking amigo! This is a problem that's present in all kinds of games - sure, the developers could take the most probable ending and make a sequel on that, but that will always piss off some of the players who choose an alternate ending, and then this miniscule group will spam down the official boards and spread bad publicity in general. Believe me, I've seen things like this happen. Well, I also know that this sort of thing doesn't matter much either, it was just another argument to support the Age of Legends idea.

    Of course, Troika has shown that they have the potential for making some über-quality games, so whatever time they choose to place it in, I'm game! I just like the Age of Legends idea better at the moment. :)

    ok, ppl getting pissed of cuz of that can go staright to ****, well, not litterally, but you get the point.

    I for example have goe through the game with 2 diffrent endings, one good, and one evil.

    On the far future. History repeats itself now Kergan escaped he was stopped but only just before he destroyed everything. Far in the future everything has been rebuilt differently and in this age they speak of the Kergan age as the time of legends. Another threat exists in Arcanum . Can you stop the cycle of destruction and regeneration and who is really behind all of this. And if you can do you really want to or ....

    yah... well anyway...
    I personally think that arcanums greatness was based on the fact that it's so atmoshpheric... i loved the way the first time i played I walked into tarant a stranger...yet i felt at home... there was so much to explore and it makes you feel so helpless... i think that we all forget and dont appreciate the first time they played arcanum, the theme it hangs around is so interesting... boy id sure love to live in the victorian era or best of all arcanum... wouldn't you all?
    anyway im just a dreamer stuck in a world of people who dont stop to think and savour the gaming experience... what im trying to say is that it would be quite interesting to have the game from a different perspective in a different land but the same time.

    The persepective does not matter.

    I just need something about Arcanum; but I wouldn't appreciate first person view.

    Bad for eyes. :eek:
