Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura Wiki

"For those lacking the patience to endure the long and complex process of creating a Character of one’s own, the makers of this fine Game have provided a means of escaping this unwelcome tedium. Yes, gentle Player—you can begin your sojourn in Arcanum with all haste! For your personal convenience, a variety of pre-fabricated Characters have been made available, thus avoiding the muss and fuss of making one from scratch!"
-Arcanum Players Manual


The very first thing that must be done before the adventure can begin is choosing the character YOU will play. The fundamental nature of a character is outlined by its race and gender. There are eight possible races, but for some races it is not possible to play a female. For those not wishing to Make a Custom Character, there is a possible race/gender combination for a Pre-Generated Character available to use. This includes a unique Auto Levelling Scheme for each one.
