Could we get a Planescape image dump thread going on? I need some ideas for my next game.

Also, general Planescape thread.

I'd love to, but all my PS images are at home.

It's funny how DiTerlizzi's art really defines the setting. Even when it was being published at the tail end of its existence, the lack of DiTerlizzi's art really put me off some of the final supplements (Inner Planes, frex). There's an ethereal, otherwordly quality to his illustrations that made the Planes come alive.

Did anyone ever get their hands on any of the notes for the sequel to Faction War that was slated for production when TSR went belly up?

I hated the way Faction War broke Sigil into tiny little pieces, but I read in an interview somewhere (with Colin McComb?) that the sequel was supposed to fix everything and re-imagine Sigil in a way that was consistent with the whole line. Too bad it never happened.

You have to consider Planescape: Torment was developed two or three years after the setting went out of print. So while I'm sure the game did have its share of influence, those of us who started playing Planescape when it was supported loved it because it was awesome.


I honestly always thought it was some kind of artistic licence or confusion. It is common for commission artists to work without really knowing the whole story, and perhaps the description the artist was given for that piece led to some missmatches.

For instance, Hades is sometimes described as having "dead trees" all over it's first layer, so perhaps that caused confusion and ended with the artists adding living trees.

On the other hand, if you check the drawing, the area does get "evil-er" in the lower section, so perhaps the artist was more inspired by the actual Hades of Greek mythology, and pictured it as an underworld.

You can't have adventure without conflict. Good aligned planes totally have that. But it's much easier to write conflict in the lower planes. Also that sense of overwhelming danger as you find yourself literally stranded in hell kind of overshadows asgardian petitioners earning your respect.

You can easily make a Planescape game in 3.5e, just go through the Manual of the Planes to get some ideas how to do that.

There's some lore, some enemies, something about the planes and so on. There are some modifications to the basic classes, that can easily reflect the nature of the game - for example, the Planar ranger (ranger that gets his bonuses on a specific plane), and the prestige classes like the Athar. You can pretty much run it like a standard game, set in a nonstandard setting.

DiTerlizzi did all of the artwork for the AD&D Monstrous Compendium Annual vol. 1. It was the first D&D book I ever saw in my entire life.

I didn't know what the game was or how it was played, but his art, with all of its sketchy, whimsical personality, can be credited with pulling me in.

Look at this guy right here. This is my favorite piece from that book. "Dragon - Linnorm - Corpse-Tearer". He's based on Nidhogg from Norse mythology, and if you told most artists to draw this figure, you'd likely end up with your typical, big roaring monster-dragon.

DiTerlizzi took the concept and made it into this smug, grizzled ancient beast who looks more likely to confound a band of heroes with a dubious bargain or riddle than simply attack. A heroic adventure should be as much about testing the heroes' wits as much as their ability to fight, and I think DiTerlizzi had that in mind with every monster he conjured up.

>> No.21614198

I know what you mean. Most modern adventures are only combat oriented, which isn't so bad, but get's boring after a while.

Planescape, on the other hand, made you think. The planes are changed by belief, Gods die because they were forgotten, Angels are selling weapons to the fiends in order to prolong the Blood war... It goes on and on and on. It gives you permission to let your imagination run wild.

You want a ninja, a viking and a wizard in your party, and you want to go to the plane made of clockwork? Sure, why the hell not. This is Planescape, everything can happen.

DiTerlizzi based his illustration style on Brian Froud, who in turn was heavily influenced by Arthur Rackham (pic related), who in turn admired the writing and design of William Morris.
