    My favorite character so far is the one I'm playing now. Her name is Kismet, an elven mage, with a debutante backround. By the end, she'll be a persuasion master, specailising in white necromantic spells and force spells. She'll also know a few conveyance spells. (Unlocking cantrip and disarm.) If I have enough CP's, I'll try to get her to be a master (or atleast appretice) pickpocket.

    pick pocket is mostly useless i find...

    if the npc you want to pickpocket from has a house and goes to sleep at night, just accelerate game time to midnight and follow them into their bedrooms and theyll just go to sleep, then quick save and start pickpocketing them, quick save each time you succeed and reload if they ever wake up and attack you, it might be tedious, but this works great even if you have no points in pickpocket. I left shrouded hills with 14,000 :) gold and plenty of armor etc right at the begining of my first game.

    now, my fav char...

    i only recently bought arcanum... ($20) a little late but it was a bargain.

    so yeah my first and only and current character is...

    Cristoff
    Lvl 18 Human
    Background, magickal allergy

    5point in gunsmith
    1point explosives (molotov cocktails are useful in the begining, easy to make, and keep me far away from baddies in melee)
    2 points in Electricity (gotta love charged rings

    Expert in Firearms
    apprentice in dodge, lockpick, throw(1point is enough), melee

    14PE
    14IN
    12DX

    hes been working out pretty well so far...

    Yes, Ristezze (sp?) is easy to pickpocket, even with no points and low dex. His key gives you access to tons of money...

    1. Steal.
    2. Take money from stash.
    3. Go two screens away, if magic character, to Wise Woman.
    4. Rest for two days (Check W.W.'s inventory if magic character).
    5. Repeat 2-5.

    This is a pretty nice trick, but it takes some fun out of the game. To each his own, I suppose...

    i've got a real neat rick for that it seems that if you keep waiting and a merchant for example ritrezze's gold stock keeps getting bigger the first time you open there supply chest will have there money in it

    Samuel Coventry, the first character I actually played through completely with - a persuasive, intelligent gunslinger :) . My points are really jumbled, I assigned as I went (my first game, like I said).

    13 Str, 3 Con ( :) ), 13 Dex, 8 Wis, 18 Per (16, but I always had my goggles on), 20 Int, 18 Chr, 9 Bea. Master of Firearms, Master of Persuasion, 1 point in Prowl, 2 in Pickpocket, full Gunsmith Schematics...


    And Droch's Warbringer. Yay.

    max points and mastery in firearms and throwing. Doctorate in firearms and explosives.

    Don't remember all the stats.

    I really found it fun playing a half-orc with an arsonist background. The racial prejudice towards the half-orcs enriched the role playing process, adding additional challenges. I ended up paying more at most shops (though the ones run by half-orcs I paid less) and would get paid less for quests. On the other hand, when I encountered orc bandits, they were friendly. I thougt it was very neat the developers factored this in.

    Don't gravedig. That means no posting in a thread that hasn't been posted in for a while. It's a big no no around here and gets most people in a tizzy.
    That aside, welcome to the forum. :wavey:

    Sleek, just because you don't play multiplayer, it doesn't mean that nobody does. From time to time, you hear about people going multi in Arcanum (although, admittedly, it's a rather rare occurence).

    1 in all stats though... wow! You got to fight some very weak creatures if you managed to survive all the way to lv30 :-o !

    I lift my invisible top hat for you, sir :thumbup:

    Actually, the clan is reasonably active, I vividly remember being in a room with 6 other players. Of course, radiationpoisoning, the kid who actually runs the clan, I'm just the moderator and beater of the ignorant, is having some trouble running his MP, and that is hurting the games, but it still survives. And the guy is an MP player, I don't have enough balls to try and get him to Shrouded Hills and use him in single player. Of course there is the problem of people beating him on sight too... Ayway, with the help of diligent training, and suicide runs in MP, I can now get through the first level of Hellgate before he passs out and gets eaten. :D
