Imagine a place of wonder, where magic and technology hold equal sway, and an adventurer might just as easily wield a flintlock pistol as a flaming sword. A place where great industrial cities house castle keeps and factories, home to Dwarves, Humans, Orcs and Elves alike. A place of ancient runes and steamworks, of magic and machines, of sorcery and science.

Arcanum is the first game to come from the development house Troika Games, LLC, started by former Fallout team members Tim Cain, Leonard Boyarsky, and Jason Anderson. This team takes the depth of gameplay and world-building in role-playing games to entirely new levels of realism and excitement.

Arcanum creates a compelling new world where magic and technology coexist in an uneasy balance. As Arcanum opens, the mechanical age has only recently arrived in this ancient land where Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Orcs and other races have learned to survive in the new sprawling industrialized cities. But this radical shift from magic to technology has created a potentially explosive situation. As the townspeople and other thinkers begin mass production of light bulbs, batteries, eyeglasses and guns, the Mages grow leery. This tightly wound setting is the starting point from which the character must set out on his quest.

There's a site with mods and information about Arcanum. Warning: it's a Russian site.

Arcanumclub.ru

For example, there's a mod which adds more quests, game mechanics and allows to continue playing after the end of the game.

Search for Arcanum 1.5 Expansion. It's a Russian mod, though.

There is this tool Arcanum Factory that was released by FilthyJack from Terra-Arcanum, with it you can create new items and modify the campaign. It also allows you to add new graphical elements, finally a modding tool for that wonderful game!

You can find it in the terra-aracnum modding forums:
terra-arcanum.com

I think the game deserves more attention and with it, modifications. Terra-Arcanum is one of the few remaining community websites still being (reasonably) active, but it has for many years been filled with people appearing with their mod only before leaving again. More stable and active modding would be fun, but there aren't a lot of players left for this game.

Good old Arcanum! I still play it to this day, and it is my absolute favorite video game of all time.

Oh Arcanum, how I love thee. A shame there are no good mods for this though, as this really is a unique universe that deserves to be expanded!

Non on here, but can try here Terra-arcanum.com and here Pcgamingwiki.com, though this is 4 years after your post so I would assume too late, but the info is now somewhere for others.
