        Well, it's not directly said in the game, but they might have used it already to tinker with shit, but what dorfs in Arcanum actually like to do besides mining, smithing, creating and other dwarvisms, is to ponder the usage and impact of new inventions. Lorgaire even laments that humans just go and do shit with new tech without realising what it might do to environment, society or people because they are so short lived, live in a moment and are generally dumb because they don't accumulate knowledge.

    outright tell you immediately. Technology fucks up magic something fierce. so the advancement of Technology fully equates to the loss of magic and the destruction of the way of life they have known both socially and physically.

    I liked this game because it let you play as a retard. The NPCs reactions to your low INT character were too funny. Other games that let me play as a retard?

      Fallout 1, 2 and New Vegas allow it

        new vegas only gave a few dialog options for it. Fallout 1 forced it if you had low int. Fallout 2 was goofy but it was nice having extra dialog with the retards in the game and it didn't feel like you were just completely locked out of doing anything if you wanted to play as a retard.

        New Vegas isn't really the same. It's basically just normal dialogue with dumb speech speech options slapped in instead of your character actually being stupid.

      The retard in Fallout 2 is not as well written, but posesses pretty much reality warping luck. Jinxed + max luck + unarmed retard is an incredibly hilarious playthrough.

    they literally commented it as steam engines stealing their jobs (to dig holes themselves).
    Dwarves in Arcanum are literally Chuds.

    Because the Industrial Revolution created a huge demand for cheap factory workers. These workers would live a wretched life in horrifying conditions. Before the IR, they would be living hungry on the streets, kept alive by donations. But with a stable low income they started endlessly cloning themselves. They created their own demand for more factories. These maybe 5% of the population living in absolute poverty grew to immense proportions. These people with the same faces lived in the same streets in completely different cities ans countries. Everything was consumed by these factories and their worker drones. They used all available resources to duplicate their biomass. No investment into the child‘s education. Why do you think shortly after the IR the state had to jump in and create social safety nets, pensions, public schools? Because the people created by the IR were too retarded to care for their own offspring.
    The IR was a horrible dysgenic disaster for humanity. Getting rid of 40% child mortality also fucked us very hard. So many people are alive today, who should have been selected out,
    Thank God for the invention of contraception and birth control.

    I could never get into this game because of the dogshit aesthetic.
    Thank god I wasn't the only one and the whole retarded steampunk+fantasy mix never came to anything. Some things just don't work together no matter how much "lore" you cram in.

        Yes, that's what I said. Filtered by shit aesthetic.

        >steampunk+fantasy mix
        I don't think thats a problem in on itself. Take Dishonored for example. But yeah, Arcanum design is shit

        Dishonored hardly qualifies as fantasy, your character's abilities are viewed as supernatural, if it were fantasy they'd be relatively commonplace; then you mix in elves, dwarves and other high fantasy tropes, and you get arcanum.

          Arcanum problem is using the "dirty" steampunk on the mix instead of the more "clean" archetype. As you said, its already a mix of shit and then they pick the one visual style which is the most visually poluted of all designs
