So the next time thru it was with great relief that I found myself refused entry to the train as being one of those regressive magic users.
I've never finished the game, nor even come close. My furthest foray was with a bit-of-everything Halfling and yeah, it really didn't work. None of his skills were high enough to be effective and the game just kind of fell apart.
I think the only way I'll ever complete the game is if I essentially put blinders on, paying attention only to the things which effect my character, ignoring the rest.
Because the game has something for everyone, I keep running into things and thinking "ooooh… that'd be cool!" and end up restarting.

Arcanum is the only game which gives me these troubles!
You know the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views, which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.
