* ''Everything'' about playing an evil Nameless One. It isn't like in other games, where you play an "evil" character by going on bloody rampages, being selfish, or being mean in a hilarious fashion. Being evil in ''Planescape: Torment'' is just an endless depressing march of sociopathic cruelty. It has been said that the only way to be evil in this game without being so beaten down as to quit is either to skip through all the dialogue and not look at the horrible things you are doing, or to genuinely be a psychopath.
* The memory in the sensory stone called "Messenger". It is a highly descriptive look at Ravel the Night Hag's cruelty through the eyes ([[EyeScream so to speak...]]) of one of her victims... and she was being merciful.

It has been said that the only way to be evil in this game without being so beaten down as to quit is either to skip through all the dialogue and not look at the horrible things you are doing, or to genuinely ''be'' a psychopath. A few examples:
** If you obtain a particular magic tome, you can sacrifice one of your allies for power, or sell one of them into slavery for ''even more'' power. [[spoiler: Made particularly cruel for Grace, who actually used to
be a psychopath.
slave, and Dak'kon, whose entire race were once slaves of the illithids.]]
** You can [[spoiler: release Coaxmetal from the Siege Tower]] with the Modron Cube, [[spoiler: simultaneously unleashing a massive force of destruction on the planes, while also damning any Modrons who were still in the Cube's pocket dimension.]] Don't worry, though, you get [[InfinityMinusOneSword a really nice weapon out of the deal.]]
** As stated above, you can feed one of your allies to the Pillar of Skulls in exchange for information, condemning them to eternal damnation for the sin of [[FalseFriend believing you were their friend.]]
** When you find Trias [[spoiler: the second time you're in Curst,]] you can [[spoiler: allow him to continue on his crusade to bring the Blood War to the Heavens, dragging countless innocent souls into a cosmic bloodbath for the sake of vengeance.]]
** Fhjull Forked-Tongue has been magically sworn to give charity to anyone who asks for it. Because of this, you can effectively rob him blind of all his most treasured possessions, while he has to [[StepfordSmiler grin and bear it]]. And no, [[PayEvilUntoEvil it doesn't make the act any less evil just because he's a devil.]]
** You can continue your previous incarnation's abuse of Deionarra by [[spoiler: manipulating her into giving you aid, even lying about loving her until you shatter her hopes of reunion once more.]]
** If you want to become an Anarchist, you first need to [[spoiler: join the Believers of the Source,]] and then [[spoiler: betray them by sabotaging their huge project, condemning everyone who works on it to death.]] It only becomes nastier from there, even though the Anarchists aren't technically an evil organization.
* The memory in the sensory stone called "Messenger". It is a highly descriptive look at Ravel the Night Hag's cruelty through the eyes ([[EyeScream so to speak...]]) of one of her victims... and she was being merciful.''merciful.''


Added DiffLines:

* If you're banished to the Nameless One's maze by the Lady of Pain, you'll likely come across an old campsite containing a brimstone axe and an old journal made from leather and bone [[spoiler: that was written by the Paranoid Incarnation.]] If you [[FridgeHorror think about it too long,]] you realize that [[spoiler: the Paranoid Incarnation]] made the journal from the only materials that were available: ''his own flesh and bone.''

** Some lesser sensory stones are rather unnerving as well, though nowhere near as horrifying as Messenger. Unavoidable Pain, for instance, shows the experience of a person who, while struggling in combat with an enemy, had their hand slowly pushed into a lava floe.

** Twice over when you realize the consequence of their hatred. [[spoiler: Every time they kill the Nameless One, they just make the problem worse.]]

** Making things worse, if you talk to the alu-fiend who runs the Curiosity Shoppe, she'll tell you that Ghysis only escaped by [[spoiler: letting the above-mentioned Pillar of Skulls ''eat'' the only other two survivors of his unit in exchange for being told where to find a portal off of Baator and how to use it]]. Even worse, you can actually call him out on this and he'll break down in front of the whole lecture.


Added DiffLines:

** Really hammered home when you use Deionarra's stone in the Festhall's Private Sensorium; even the most ChaoticEvil version of The Nameless One will break down in tears InUniverse when he's confronted by both Deionarra's own feelings and the total heartless rage and cruelty that the Practical Incarnation was actually feeling when Deionarra was talking to him.

** Adding to the fuel, she was a little girl when she passed through the portal and when you meet her she is an adult but you can't tell which age because of the many wounds and how this life has worn her out. Meaning what happend to her could have been decades or just a few years.

* Deionarra's backstory. For a fantasy game, the notion of [[spoiler: AdultFear your lover never caring about you, using you, and murdering you]] is a frighteningly real fear.
