    [​IMG] Then this one question comes to mind, why does the nameless one have a blue skin? I mean normal people arn't bleu and undeads arn't blue. He is the only one in the entire game (Correct me if I'm wrong) That is bleu. But he had a blank skin in his first live (As you can see in the intro movie) Does the planescape rolebook or other things say anything about blue skin, is it a sideaffect of losing your mortality? (What color was ravels skin?) I want to know!

    His skin is grey,not blue,however i think the cause is Ravel's ritual,when she pulled out his mortality,so he pratically he is without a soul(in my opinion...)

    I was under the impression that his skin was completely covered in scars and had lost all of its original color, having been replaced entirely with scar tissue.

    [​IMG] No it's not entirely covered with scar tissue. Remember onr of Morte's first lines? The scars on your chest aint that bad.. so there must be his skin colour, but why has this changed...

    Maybe Ravel lied and simply used on TNO a Abi Dalzim's horrid wilting...
    -spoiler-i just remembered that when you merge with The Trascendent One (i loved his voice!:grin: ) your body doesn't change at all,so the ritual isn't the cause...

    He is immortal right?

    So he doesn't have to use blood and stuff, which normally colour our skin. He looks bluish grey and dead. Which I quite appropiate.

    I agree completely, he should have fair elven skin. Gray (gray, not blue) is totally inappropriate for a person who looks like a corpse.
     
  9. Hmmm, my sarcasm-o-meter seems to have exploded.

    Archangel is right on this one.

    [​IMG] His skin is not blue. If you're seeing it blue, you need to either adjust your monitor colour or get a new pair of glasses. Or eyes, if you still see blue after fixing all of that. :D

    Here, I'll prove it to you that his skin is grey: http://www.sorcerers.net/tormentbg.jpg

    (P.S. He IS coloured blue on some cover art though, but that's just for the better effect against the crimson background. It's not what he looks like in the game or anywhere else.)

    [​IMG] Yeah, I was shocked when I discovered he was indeed grey, but there is a light bleu glow coming from him. I don't know why I thought he was bleu but I was just pretty sure ogf it yesterday, before I started playing.

    I think indeed his colour is grey since his body is dead, while his mind is not...

    ArchAngel, he may not use blood but he still bleeds, hence he gives up some of his blood for the alchemist to make the colt charms.
    And for him to heal fast his blood has to be the actual healing agent, so therefore for his wounds to heal he needs blood, and also pumping blood, so the blood is pumping around his body, so it would colour his skin.

    Think of an old white person... Don't they seem to lose their pinkness over time? I think this is just what happened to the Nameless One, he is just so old he doesn't have any colour pigmentation in his skin anymore. Or his body has just healed itself so many times it's useless the make it pink...
    (The fact that his hair's still black has nothing to do with my arguement...)

    [​IMG] About his Black hear, wasn't that an other colour to, in the intro movie? Maybe I'm wrong again, (Wish I had a game lying in here!) But I wonder...

    And another question, why did Annah/Paroth/The Dustmen not take that pretty cool looking belt he is wearing? It must be worth more than the note and the ring Pharod had. And why is the game never talking about that belt it looks so impressing!

    Black hear? His hearing was black? It's not hear or bleu, it's hair and blue. And his hair was black.

    The belt? Looks like a cheap piece of leather with bits of old bone stuck to it.

    The Grey Waste bleeds the color out of everything that enters it. We know Nameless One has been there... That's how I always assumed he became grey.
