Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition has been released! Visit www.planescape.com to purchase and check for details.
Attention, new and old users! Please read the new rules of conduct for the forums, and we hope you enjoy your stay!

wonder what's the rank you reach after the ending? (spoilers)

So.. some questions:

1) Does the trascendent one have the memories of each one of your incarnations?
2) What's the rating\ranking you reach after having merged once again with everyone and finished the game as the best Nameless one (namely best stats in almost everything? Check this: ). ARe you a god ? A demigod?

    well the max level you can get to if you open the sphere is 32 so i'd say merging would up it to 40.

    No, I meant another thing. How powerful you are? Are you a god on the universe? more than a god? Something else?

    1) Possibly. You became two separate entities when Ravel separated you. There is still a connection, but TTO exists to keep existing, and to keep TNO from ever finding and returning to him(it?). It probably had some vague goals set out, but its main purpose was to keep itself apart from TNO. It had the Shadows to gather intelligence for it, for the most part. At least, that's what I gathered.
    2) Fusing back with your mortality gives you both your mortality back(and triggers the Blood War Contract you originally signed with Fhjull Fork-Tongue. Trias was part of the whole thing to keep Fhjull from being able to call on the debt so when Trias finally dies or ascends back, the force keeping Fhjull vanishes and he returns to full power. The Contract is resumed once you have your Mortality back, which is why you are teleported to a battlefield.

    But, honestly, the Fiends have no idea what just joined the Blood War. The fusion of TTO and TNO probably brought the powers of both into the mix. TTO shows as he appears almost as armor around TNO before he sinks into his body.

    At this point, TNO pretty much is something beyond most demi-gods, and possibly lower ranked deities. He will wade into the Blood War and slaughter with the fury of a thousand, thousand lifetimes. Whatever man he was originally, he is something wholly different by the end of the adventure. And Fhjull has no hope of keeping him bound to the Contract.

    Also its very possible that TNO is still immortal after fusing with TTO. As in, unable to die of old age. Though the vital energy that TTO gathered over the centuries will probably give TNO the same regenerative abilities he had before. I don't know if he can keep getting back up after dying, but death is not the end in Planescape save for the True Death. Its quite possible TNO could transcend by dying into something more.

    I would say, on a Planescape level, that he is the embodiment of Torment... a multiversal constant in the same way Pain is and the Lady is a multiversal constant.

    Its a hard thing to quantify. But he and the Lady have alot of parallels. Assuming you believe that one planescape book written from her POV that may or may not be someone's wishful thinking on the ineffable... but its a nice idea.

    TNO has friends who will keep looking for him. He can find a way back into the City of Doors. After that... who can say. Annah, Dak'kon, and Grace will never stop looking for him, and finding him across the endless battlefields of the Blood War might be easier then you'd think. Morte would follow along. Because its fun.

    And Fhjull has no hope of keeping him bound to the Contract.

    Point of order: I suspect you're vastly underestimating the ability of Devils to force those who sign contracts to actually keep those contracts. A devil won't release someone from a contract or allow them to break it for, just about (rare exceptions exist), any reason. I don't care how powerful of a mortal someone is or is not, that's nothing compared to devils as a whole. So, you defeat one devil? Another takes up the contract. The whole hierarchy of the Nine Hells is designed to keep contracts intact and to keep corrupting mortals by the enforcement of said contracts.

    At this point, TNO pretty much is something beyond most demi-gods

    He is a MORTAL. So, no, he's definitely not. A powerful mortal is still just a mortal. And being long-lived and powerful doesn't make TNO immortal.
    Comparing him to the Lady of Pain is laughable. She's so powerful that no god, demon, devil, or any other entity will dare cross her, lest she simply flays them. TNO is a powerful mortal. That's like comparing an apple to a boulder; we all know a boulder is much larger.

    I would say, on a Planescape level, that he is the embodiment of Torment... a multiversal constant in the same way Pain is and the Lady is a multiversal constant.

    No. He's a mortal at the end. That was the whole point of regaining his mortality. To actually be able to die. And I don't care how many artificial levels the game lets you get; TNO is still a mortal with all that implies. Just because he's basically now the Planescape equivalent of Elminster doesn't mean he's a bigshot in the greater Multiverse.
