Boxart for Planescape: Torment

Planescape: Torment in one of the sister games of the Baldur's Gate series and the Icewind Dale series. It was developed by Black Isle Studios and was released on December 12, 1999.

Unlike Baldur's Gate, this game doesn't let you create the main character, but instead puts you in the role of the Nameless One, an immortal, undead man who suffers from amnesia.

Setting[edit | edit source]

Unlike the other games in the family, PS:T takes place in eponymous Planescape setting, which is—unlike Forgotten Realms—not mainly based on medieval fantasy but instead incorporates a vast number of different genres (such as steampunk, fantasy, etc.). The nature of the Planescape setting effectively connects all Dungeons & Dragons settings with each other.

In-game Crossovers[edit | edit source]

Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment feature a number of crossovers and cross-references.
