    [​IMG] At first since there seem to be so many new players who have just started or are just starting up with the game I suggest they stay out of here until they have finished their games unless they want to meet some serious spoilers.

    Well I'm sure we've had many of these threads before but we sure have not had one in a while so I thought it would be good to share our top moments in Planescape Torment once again. :)

    This game has countless beutyful and unique scenes but as my favorite I would pick the confrontation with Xaixchard (or whatever the blind archer was called). Just meeting the guy who your incarnation used to travel with in such a horrible state and hearing his story about what that bastard practical incarnation did to him. Also the way he is finally let out of his misery help to build up my favorite moment of the game. Just plain beutyful it's all I can say.

    Xacariah, or there abouts. :p

    My favourite moments are with Morte. What he says when he gets upgraded, along with what he says when you are about to travel to the fortress... almost brought a tear to the eye. He was so LOYAL, and he was treated so badly. My nomination for saint...

    Ah, what to choose from the myriad of blissful moments in PS:T...

    I'd say my most intense moment was (or rather IS every time I play the game anew...) the recollection (during the talk with her father) of what the pratical incarnation had done to Deionarra. When you re-live as a third party the scene of her seduction. And of course: I shiver every time I bid her ghost farewell in the mortuary. When I hear her saying that she will wait for me in the hall of the deads...

    What an inimitable game this is...

    I'd say it was the memory in which Morte was pried out the Pillar.

    Not the favourite moment by all means, but the most emotional one.

    I really would like to find out about other moment: the first movie, before the Nameless One awakens. Who was the zombie girl ? No girls in the Mortuary who talk, and the archer is male. I'd believe it was one of the former girlfriends of the Nameless one, but it feels a bit stretched.

    Kulyok, wasn't that Raven's manifestation - one "zombie" does speak.

    It's a really hard choice; the *first* thing that stunned me was that beggar who wants to eat your finger.

    I have two that I can remember out of head:

    First when I saw Deionarra and I thought: "wow, first time seeing someone actually doing that." And I had been thinking none of the gaming companies got the idea -and no other still does.

    Second, when my party arrived to that dirt city and NO/Annah got a bit hanky -after he had kissed the images of her and Fall-From-Grace. :xx:

    (Just kidding; is that even possible? :p )

    My favourite moment must be the ending, when you find out that no matter what you do, there is no really "good" ending.

    The whole conversation with 'O', I love the story behind that character.

    Also the whole circle of Zerthimon drama with Dak'kon

    The end dialogue with FFG at the Fortress of Regrets.

    That was pretty good too. "I will find you no matter where you go in Abyss!" (Or something like that.) Of course, the rest of the party would probably follow, or one of them at least. When do we get P:T2? :p

    I thought the entire scene with Raven was incredible -- that had to be the most complex dialogue I've ever seen in a game.

    Fhjull was hilarious.

    The memory when you prove someone out of existance was something particular too...

    BTW, where do you guys meet xacariah? I haven't found him...yet

    [​IMG] Xacariah is on the first level of the mortuary...try north-north-east. You need Stories-Bone-Tell ability in order to talk to him.


    Forgot to add MY favorite moment...when you get Ignus to join the party...Ignus is my favorite NPC in the game as the one who suffered the most - in my opinion - at the hands of the Nameless One. Just after you get him it is possible to talk to his ex-girlfriend for a last embrace...

    I found that rather annoying; what's the point of killing the only one who is actually at your side? Also, Ignus did what he did just because of himself, by what the story tells. In fact, he even betrays you in the end of the game.

    Not always. Only if you're Good or Neutral. There's someone else willing to end your existence if you're Evil...

    Actually, it never made a lot of sense to me. I always thought you *should* fight Ignus if you're Lawful or Neutral, and only fight your other opponent if you're Chaotic.

    After completing the game, I've got to add pretty much the entire Fortress of Regrets. I was just blown away by how incredible it was.

    I had no idea the blind archer was actually in the game. I did find him in the mortuary, but he doesn't remember who he is. How do I help him get his memory back?

    Sticking to the topic, I think my favorite moment was when the Nameless One figures out what The Transcendent One is. I felt stupid for not figuring it out myself beforehand, though.

    One of my favorite moments was when TNO was playing with the cube hero and Morte got jealous, that really cracked me up.
