    When you open the Inventory screen, the figure of your character in the center of it - that's a paperdoll.

    Sometimes you also call "paperdoll" the figure of your character on the screen (in the game)

    The reason it's referred to as a paperdoll is that's essentially what a paperdoll was: A two dimensional picture of a person in their skivvies to which you could attach paper clothing and accessories using tabs.

    [​IMG] The figures on the main screen, your character that move and fight, are known normally as avators.

    In BG, I've always heard of them being refered to as 'sprites' (talking about the little animated guys that you adventure with)

    Yes, sprites are 2D graphic charachters, games like BG and Duke Nukeum use them,NWN will use polygons,3D charachters.
