Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura Wiki

"I was in a pub minding my own affairs when I overheard a gnomish merchant mouthing off about how the Wheel Clan was just a bunch of cheap, worthless ditch diggers. I confronted him and told him to apologize. He would not. Instead he let his liquor do his talkin' for him, so I let my fist do mine. It only took one solid hit and he was gone. Gone. Weak necked bastards. The next day I was shipped off to this rock."
-A Conversation with Thorvald Two Stones


Thorvald Two Stones can be found inside his home in the northwest portion of the Isle of Despair Penal Colony.

Thorvald Two Stones is a member of the Wheel Clan. Unknown to the rest of his clan, he was sent to the Isle of Despair Penal Colony 100 years ago for killing a Gnome in a pub brawl. He has since made himself the leader of the encampment, but harbors hope of returning home someday.
