    Well, I'm thinking about gearing up for a romp through Sigil, again.

    This time, taking it slow, and sucking every last quest out of the game.

    Last time I went through, I was hammering it like crazy, and skipped and missed out on a bunch of stuff. But now I've got my new machine working (fairly well), I'm thinking all the running around won't be as painful.

    I have to say, the first time I played it, I was glad to get out of the morturary. I didn't really care for it at all. But I just extracted the music for burning to an audio disk this evening, and it kinda got me thinking I should read back through the game.

    I think my favorite part was the Upper Ward. Running around doing all the Brothel quests, and using the Sensate stones.

    What was your favorite part of Planescape?

    Well, good luck on trying to do every quest, my friend. As I understood it, you couldn't do every single quest because some of them were actually quite evil, which is bad if you want to be lawful good. Although, I did to the quest in the Foundry with the blowing-up-of-the-machine-that-was-madefor-fiends-anyways without any alignment hits, so maybe you could do it!! But the best scene, hmm, must think on that one. I would have to say meeting Ravel or meeting Trias. Yeah, that was cool.

    Entering the Brothel for the first time... Felt amazing, especially with that great music that plays there. And later, the Sensoriums.

    [​IMG] Talking to Vhailor and IGnus I just loved them

    The first meeting with Annah...

    The pillar of skulls, Fork tongue, the riddling skeleton (He did keep me awake for more then 2 days I just wanted theanswer so badly!), That poet was cool to!

    I love this game!

    I made them and got them backed up on the harddrive already. You could use them on SP if you want Tal. I moved them to a geocities dump site. Copy and paste below in the address bar if the link doesn't work.

    Well, you could just copy & paste the text of the dialogs.

    Platter: I could have, but methinks having the actually screen that goes with it makes all the difference. You get some visuals instead of plain text. Plus I wanted a to utilize photoshop and not word. ;)

    My favorite part...wow, maybe just wandering Sigil. I loved the feeling of walking through the streets there.

    Aw crap, where's my Torment disc? Here we go again. :rolleyes:

    [​IMG] The sensory stone where you see what the Nameless One did to Deionarra through her eyes. My word, that was intense. Sad too.
