* Mebbeth the healer just happens to have some quests to send you on if you ask her for training in the use of magic, including picking up some laundry that was dropped off ''years'' ago. Seems like ContrivedCoincidence until you learn [[spoiler: that she's an avatar of Ravel. Then it makes sense: Ravel deliberately set things up to aid you]].

* Most of the joinable factions represents different aspects of The Nameless One.
** The Dustsmen wants to achieve the [[DeaderThanDead True Death]]. So does The Nameless One, and CessationOfExistence is a possibility.
** The Sensates wants to experience everything. It's strongly implied that The Nameless One have experienced everything during his many lives, but they're mostly veiled beneath the amnesia.
** The Godsmen believe that anyone can become a god, which is possible in ''Dungeons & Dragons''. The Nameless One is one of the most powerful beings in the multiverse, can attain high levels and max out his attributes way beyond a mortal's capacity, so he's pretty much a PhysicalGod.

**I thought he became mortal because, you know, he merged with his mortality.

* One reason he is so ready to face his fate in the best ending, especially after he merges with The Transcendent One? He has regained all the memories of every single one of his past incarnations. He has experienced all that life has to offer, he has gained all the skills, strength, and knowledge he possibly could. Even in the end, he doesn't truly "die" in a normal sense, he is dragged down into the Blood War with body, mind, and soul.
* Why is he so confident when he head towards the nearby battle, just grabbing whatever weapon is laying nearby? He is a master of it, as he has mastered all things he could possibly master during his many lives. Bonus being that, one way or the other, he is still immortal, and he may still have all the powers he gained from his incarnations.



* The entire game is about cruelty and abuse, and the potential cyclical nature of these. Notably, we never find out what the Nameless One did to damn himself initially, but we see reflections of his horrors in many [=NPCs=] and party members.

** Also, this game was adapted from ''DungeonsAndDragons'' rules. Now, what shape does a D20 take?

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixv_jRI6VqY The Main Theme]] captivates the game's plot. There's first the gloomy part when The Nameless One wakes up, lost and confused, then the uplifting part where he makes progress, then the up-beat part which is the climax and lastly the fade down where he has concluded his journey and ends his life.

* An unwritten rule in ''TabletopGames/Planescape'' is that [[TheDreaded the Lady of Pain]] [[LordBritishPostulate has no stats. Ever.]] How did ''Torment'' convey this? By having her only appear in FMV cutscenes, where the developers would never have to stat her, even to tag her as invincible or something similar.
