Planescape: Torment

Planescape: Torment is a fantasy role playing game that uses the Advanced Dungeon and Dragons rules with the Planescape campaign setting. This setting turns most of the traditional fantasy elements on their pointy ears, and challenges you to solve the intricate riddle of the Nameless One. You awake from death on a cold Mortuary slab with no memory of your previous lives and no idea who you are. The rest of the game involves unraveling your past and seeking out clues to your identity and past sins. Torment uses Bioware’s Infinity engine, which was put to good use in Baldur’s Gate. Players control the action from a top down view, and the game generally adheres to the Dungeons and Dragons rules, which allows you to grow your character in terms of experience level and equipment.
