4 Works in Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
Whether or not you've ever played Arcanum, I suggest searching youtube for the opening cinematic before reading this, to set the mood. It's basically a less-gameplay-centric jaunt through the story using one of the premade characters: female half-orc Clarisse Vorak. I'm trying to make this as realistic as I can without beating anyone over the head with the Idiot Stick, so it won't follow the artificially imposed plot rails of the game exactly, but I've made it accurate to the game wherever I can. Travel time, for example, and characters' skills. Dialogue will be pulled straight from the game for as many events as possible; I figured out how to get into the dialogue files and had way too much fun.

This is the personal diary of Clarisse Vorak, a half orc lady from the computer role playing game "Arcanum: Steamworks and Magick Obscura." It's an unfinished work I originally wrote roughly eight years ago, and I'm polishing it chapter by chapter as I post it here. For more background, see the preface to the first chapter.
Virgil tries to be a gentleman instead of a hoodlum, and discovers that the Living One isn't entirely the demure human lady she seems to be.
