Planescape: Torment is 25 years old this year. What are you hoping for?

We probably ain't getting no anniversary edition or anything of the sort, but would be nice to get some sort of retrospective from MCA. I know there's a bunch of interviews and stuff, but nothing like a nice, fat blogpost.

I'm putting in a character named Chad Abalone in my BG3 parody, so that's something I guess.

Be the change you wish to see in the world or whatever.

I hope no one comes up with the idea of refreshing the brand. Really, it's better left dead. While Baldur's Gate 3 can be considered at least a partially successful game because the setting was always been pulp and infantile, PT needs a slightly more intelligent approach and sense of taste. No one, especially Wizards, is going to give money to something that won't please former Tumblr users.

I'd like to fuck young 25 year old girl called Torment. Torment her with my horse cock until sweet suffering unlocks the meaning of life...RPGs are shit. At least until we can simulate living fantasy worlds with AI. We're all playing for decades just CYOAs with pew-pew battles. All true roleplaying happens in our heads. RPGs are just there to stimulate our brains, like skilled, good whore stimulates dick

Torment stimulated my heart. At least that's what are my expectations once I finally play it

Came in here to say this. Hopefully inXile's numanuma successfully killed such ideas for the next 20 years at least.

My personal belief is that WotC is unlikely to try to push for a new torment as such, sooner a new planescape game if they want to raise awareness of the setting and sell more books or something.

I would be happy with a planescape game, not even a successor.

Definetely not by Larian though... also 5E is problematic, but ok what can we do, from what I read the porting to 5E of Planescape is not that bad, but no idea.

BG3 has nice graphics, animations and voice acting but Larian can't write for shit so keep them away from PST.

Wotc has been in trouble lately. I won't say they will go bankrupt, but they may restructure. This may be the best thing RPG has had in years because either the brands they own will die for a while or they will be released (but in that case there is possibility of the brands being taken over by some screwed-up indie company).

Holy shit I just realized that I never considered the possibility of a new Torment by Larian.

:prosper:

Imagine 3D sex with Tiefling or succubus.

But also

Imagine sex with flying skull.
[DEXTERITY] Kick the Lim-Lim.

By today's standards it will probably be: [Con] Insert the Lim-Lim.
It's a paraphrased dialogue option from BG3, so by today's standards it will still probably be what I said.

What if Lim-lims are non-binary?

I never said where the Lim-Lim went bigot. And of course they're non-binery. I would know. If I remember correctly, they turned rock hard for a reason as well.

The best we can hope for is that the game is left alone. It doesn't need a sequel and it definitely does not need a remake or any kind of modern update.
