Vendigroth and the Molochean Hand

I cannot tell if this is accidental, coincidental, or a purposeful easter egg. I do not recall any lore linking Vendigroth and the Molochean Hand, other than a mutual hatred for Arronax. And yet I do not know what to make of this:

Getting back into Arcanum

The new UAP mods have got me digging this old chestnut back out and firing it up again  :)  I am hoping to uncover some new paths that I have not tried out before.  Check back for my progress.

Aphex Twin: an Arcanum inspiration?

Recently, I noticed something interesting. Arcanum’s Void track sounds awfully similar to Aphex Twin’s Grey Stripe track. Given that the Arcanum designers are admirers of Aphex Twin—who served as an inspiration for Fallout’s soundtrack—it’s quite possible that this track influenced Void. The tone and the sounds are quite similar.

Here is the Aphex Twin track:

And here is the Arcanum track:

Compare them and judge for yourself.

More content

I started replaying Arcanum again after many many years and it's slowly becoming my current favourite game, even in the year 2015.

When I wanted more information about some things, I stumbled on this wikia. It has tons of content and I found most of what I needed, but I saw that a lot of pages and content are still missing, so I took it upon me to start contributing.

A lot of pages had formatting problems and some pages had really confusing and bad English. I fixed most of them but I'm still searching for more pages to fix the simple mistakes.

I'm also on the path of creating pages for all the Quests that Arcanum has, but the majority is still missing in this wikia. Hopefully I will have the time and motivation to keep contributing :)

Huge changed

Massively updated the item  pages so now they have separate categories for the weapons armour and new Miscellaneous objects added. Included in this was a massive update on the pictures for the Torso where they we subcategorised into:

  • Barbaric
  • Cloaks and Gowns
  • Civility
  • Chainmail
  • Leather
  • Pate

Hopefully by categorising everything  it makes it easier to find the information that people are after. Also the stats of all of the Torso objects were added. 

Finally, I made a huge discovery while browsing the Russian Arcanum fan pages, where I found that they have a copy of the Arcanum Beta which can be found here:
