Though, I know I need but I have read the book. I was wondering, for those who have read it, how acurate is it to the game? And, which of the game endings is the ending of the book?|
|#2factol_rhys_dupApr 29, 2004 19:47:02||It's quite different. A lot more happens in the game. For another thing, in the game, Annah isn't a spellcaster and isn't a wererat. The Nameless One is always nameless (unless you manage to find his name, but you never get to find out what it is) and you meet a lot more characters. The circumstances surrounding his loss of mortality are a bit different: he was a deeply evil man worried about an afterlife on the Lower Planes, not some chump who put his soul on the line to save a town. The histories of all the characters are more deeply explored and it always comes back to you, somehow. All in all, the game cannot be beaten.|
I propose a new faction called: "The Nameless" which devotes itself to the idea that true enlightenment can be found not in some hippy screed like "The Cadence," but in the wonderful game known humbly as "Planescape: Torment".
|#3AgonarApr 29, 2004 20:29:02||Heh, I have never played Torment either. It came out during the height of my relationshyip with planescape, but at a time when me and computer/D&D games were not on good terms. So I never picked it up.|
Now that I have a system that can handle it, and I really want to find it and play it, I can't find it anywhere.

Try CompUSA if you've got one within driving distance... I've never been to one and not seen a dozen or so copies of Torment in the bargain rack.
|#5choleric_psionApr 30, 2004 10:18:36||Woah there Rhys! Isn't saying something like that contradictory to your beliefs? I mean you're the factol, how's a sod like you supposed to say something like that. |
Anyways, back to being OoC...I think that would be an interesting idea. A new faction created by the fans and turned into official material. Ah, maybe I'm just dreaming but then again if I believe it will happen...maybe it will, right?
|#6zombiegleemaxApr 30, 2004 11:23:48||I did a slight conversion, the Nameless One |
after he merges with the Transcendant One. It's a bit biased twoards good, but I'd like to see others interpritations or conversions. In fact my conversion should be somewhere on this board. I think it's under Penitent One:Nameless One Redux. It's near the end.
|#7zombiegleemaxMay 18, 2004 14:31:15||Just wanted to say that i never knew about planescape (i know it is a sin and i am wandering the earth for planescape material for penance)|
But i saw torment in the shop... i played all the D&D computer games before it so i saw the logo and thought - this should be good! (IT IS THE BEST GAME OF ALL TIME!!!!!)
played it 4 times (joined all the different factions, got all the characters... downloaded "easter egg" morte, "leprchaun" Annah
(was waiting for "Santa Claus" Vhailor!) , missed 1 9th level spell
To everyone who hasnt played the game... BUY IT, PLAY IT, LIVE IT!!!!!!
-VERY, VERY, VERY upset that they are no longer making planescape material! - what happend?

Soulbringer. If, thru buying torment in a dual jewel case, you find yourself in possession of this game, break the disks, put the shards in the microwave, then bury the melted goo 6 foot deep in consecrated ground.

And it is funny, because I used to see it a lot in varous stores not too long ago. And just when I want to go pick it up, it vanishes.
