    You (*the player*) don't find out who the nameless one is, at least not in any of the endings I've seen. Its possible for *the character* to find out his original identity, but that's about it.

    I think it is best that way. A definitive answer would either be meaningless or kind of silly.

    There's a cool more or less fictional story about The Nameless One in the Torment section. Look for the History of the Nameless One. It's a good read.

    The point of Planescape:Torment is to have a game you can't cheat.
    Since all your posts are about cheating, I may only guess that inability to cheat in PT made you not playing it.

    If that is the case, I don't think PT fans lost anything. Besides, judging a game you never finished does not mean it is bad as you say. It would mean that if noone else finished it. But pal, everyone who touched that game, finished it one way or another.

    The Nameless one's identity depends on your decisions. For example you can find your original identity, but you can finish the game without that. You can kill your most dangerous enemy, but you can join with him. Etc.

    Noone who finished the game haven't said it was boring. Never. So you wouldn't say it either if you just exited Mortuary.

    Vecna? If you think on Robe of Vecna you're wrong. Existance of overpowered "bonus" (or as I say CHEATING) items in BG2 does not have anything to do with Nameless One's identity.
    Vecna was a powerful lich in Planescape world, eventually got destroyed by his own weapon and that's all about him.

    [​IMG] Oh Oh Oh Extremist.

    Vecna was indeed a powerful lich, but he was'nt destroyed.

    He lost his hand and eye under a battle with his general Kaz. (vampire)
    He became a god after that. (the god of secrets to be exact)

    *sigh*
    http://www.sorcerers.net/ubb/Forum2/HTML/003000.html

    Is the thing I posted there moths ago enough to explain that Vecna is no god and got killed? It is not something I imagined - it is copied from description of an item called Eye of Vecna. Yes, the very item description from Planescape:Torment the game!

    It is totally of topic.
    Yes, I used it. What did you think - that I retyped all those dialogs?

    I have to admit that i'm not 100% sure, i read it in one of my 3rd edition rulebooks.

    And i don't believe that lies.

    Well, Extremist, I'm no expert on Black Isle's flights of fancy, but I do know pnp D*D fairly well.

    Vecna was originally mentioned in the first edition DMG. The two artifacts associated with him are the Hand and the Eye, plus the Sword of Kas. That was back in 1979. Something over a decade later, there were some adventure modules published dealing with him, "Vecna Returns" or something like that. This was well after Gygax was ousted, btw. I didn't really pay much attention to them, but the general idea was the Vecna was trying to become a god and rule the world. It appears that he managed one, but not the other. He is definitely listed as a god in the 3e Players Handbook.

    I don't think he had any association with the Planescape setting in PnP, but I'm not positive of that. The Robe of Vecna was made up by for BG to the best of my knowledge.

    Ok, I admit! You could saw it in many of my posts.
    I hate d&d and I know nothing about d&d. And I don't p'n'p.

    I'll never read anything about d&d rules, includung books you mention.
    The Vecna history I posted was made by Black Isle and not me. I don't have a slightest obligation to defend Black Isle. I should spit on them for cancelling Torn.

    However, I won't accept that Vecna is god just as you won't accept Vecna is dead. So, please, change the subject already. Nameless One has nothing to do with Vecna.

    ill make a new topic about vecna in whatnots:)
