    I've been had this weird idea... While I can't flat-out say that Planescape is my favourite RPG of all times (it comes close, certainly), I remain absolutely amazed by the overall quality of the NPCs there. Now, I don't think having them in your team (or playing them) in another game could do them justice, although I would love to be proved wrong. Still, I've often dreamed about having them make appearances in new games, NWN modules, and the like. So my question is this: if you had to choose 1 Planescape character to see again, which one would it be?

    Who I'd like to see: Annah.
    Who you're more likely to see: Morte.

    Let's face it, talking floating skulls are more generic than Scottish-sounding tieflings. ;)

    I voted Dak'kon after a pretty long debate with myself. Runners-up for the top position were Morte, Annah and Grace, and Ravel would also be interesting.

    Morte would be my choice. Not only a great character but thinking of the mechanics of it he'd be perfect for a short cameo providing comic relief. Dak'kon, Vhailor or Ravel would work very well if you wanted to make a connection to the plot of the new game.

    "Morte" already appears in the NWN mod "Shadows over Daggerford". :grin:

    Yep, I'd love to see Annah again, but unfortunately there has been an overabundance of tieflings in recent D&D games so I don't know how likely it is.

    I really enjoyed the Annah character. But for a cameo Falls-From-Grace would be more interesting.

    I voted for Ignus because he's my favorite character and just beyond cool. Of course, dialogue-wise you'd get more out of any of the others.

    If we're talking about them appearing in fan-made stuff, my vote goes to none of them, anywhere, ever. As in, hands off.

    Toss up between Dak'kon and Morte, but I give it to Dak'kon.

    Actually, there is an nwn mod that contains most of the main characters of ps:t. I don't remember how it's called, but it takes you through the circles of hell from Dante. Might be that it's split in more than one mod, even. I don't remember anymore. It was quite good, though rather linear. It plays after the end of PS:t.

    I pretty much agree with Susipaistis hands off approach. Taking them out of their original context would not in my opinion be very appropriate. I'd rather have modmakers/developers make their own unique characters and find some more subtle way to give tribute to torment if they find it necessary.
