Arcanum is the GWJ CRPG's Club's sixth winner, edging out Baldur's Gate to get the nod in our first ever category vote. Released in 2001, this isometric view game draws rave reviews for its open world and incredibly diverse character development.
There is only a standard edition of the game and no DLC. The game is playable on Windows. Note that most players strongly recommend using the unofficial patch or Multiverse Patch to fix the many bugs in the original release. See the Helpful Links section for more information.
We'll be playing this game until September 30, 2019 . This thread is for friendly discussion as we play through the game. Share your reflections, successes, defeats, tactics, wishes, impressions, and whatever here! The more conversation the better, so post away.
For BIG spoilers, please use the spoiler tag. (No! I am your father!) Tactics, strategies, general story progression likely won't need them.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate, and can start at any time, so join the fun! One quick favor: If you decide to play, make a post here along the lines of "I'm in!" to let us know. If you start and finish the game before the end, you'll level up your GWJ CRPG Membership.
