* ''PlanescapeTorment'' has a guild of people known as the Collectors whose job is to find dead bodies and turn them in to the Dustmen, a local sect that runs the Mortuary and prepares and inters the bodies of Sigil's dead. The Collectors almost always strip the bodies of everything valuable first. One of your party members, [[HalfHumanHybrid Annah]], is one... and met you by finding your PlayerCharacter dead and collecting his body. (The game starts with you waking up at the morgue, and you meet up with her again later.)
