I've played this game before too. I think this is real interesting; the storyline and everything.



You battle wild animals, demons, and even other humanoids.
You can play as the following races: Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, Halflings, Orcs, Ogres.

If you are into mindless gameplay and random killing for no real reason, this game probably isn't your type =P

It takes place in an more revolutionary fantasy time period. The storyline is basicly, you are on a luxury zepplin, that gets shot down, and become the only survivor. The half ogres responsible for the shooting, both die in an airborn accident of their own. The character you play as is considered "the living one", a holy reincarnate, by a man that presses on following and helping you, who goes by the name Virgil. Along the way you create your own characters personality and such, by being able to do your own actions, steal from any one you want (and hope not to get caught) pick lock, pick pocket, be a good semaritan, ect. ect. After the crash, you are given are silver ring by a dying boy, and told to deliver it elsewhere. You search for the rings origins and meaning, for it seems many people are after it, and in the meantime are attacked by assassins, ect, all while learning an exploring a vast continent and learning more of it.

Sorta sounds super boring but the game itself is a lot of fun =3
You can also play online with friends =D

Anyone else ever play?

I saw this on a wiki for Recommended PC games to play. It was #1 since it started with A.
Looks like Diablo, sounds like Morrowind. Online play sounds fun!

Yar! It's a lot of fun!
I always makes halflings and pick pocket from like... every person I see =3
I like picklocking stuff and taking people's crap...
Especially the merchants, because I just sell their stuff back to them, then go steal it back and sell it to them again =3

Yeah thats a lot of fun. Oblivion is like that, with a LOT of freedom to do almost anything you want, but there is also rules and laws that people follow, and if you break it its tough to get away without a guards sword in your face. until you start joining factions. Only thing is that Oblivion is really graphics and effects heavy and doesnt work well on weaker computers.

Arcanum, Diablo, and Baldurs Gate all use a less intense engine which lets weaker comps run it smoothly.

Haha yeah... I always save before i rob anyone, cuz if you're caught they attack you and the police rage all over you and you rarely get away with your life. =P

I like when the police get involved though, because i can usually kill at least one, and rob him of his stuff too =]

lol same with Oblivion, STOP RIGHT THERE CRIMINAL SCUM! Theres a few skills to help survive when getting attacked by guards: invisibility, chameleon, Calm, and even spells to make guards fearful and run away! Clobbering them works too sometimes, but all their loot is really heavy and takes a few trips to sell it off.
In Oblivion, merchants wont buy stolen goods, you have to join the thieves guild and find a special member who will buy your stolen goods.
