Would it be inappropriate to use Annah as she looked in Planescape:Torment as a PC or NPC portrait today? I only ask because D&D art has gotten a lot less "weird" since the end of 3rd edition and the death of the "dungeonpunk" aesthetic. I really love the Planescape stuff from 2E, but it feels like 4e and 5e have changed gears on what D&D looks like.
No tumblr/SJW debate please.
I'd say the quality of the computer model is more of an issue than the design. I'd probably give her another pass but I think it's generally pretty sound.
The thing is, even though the look presented in the books has changed your group is still free to have their game look and feel however they want. I think it's just a matter of making sure she fits in with the specific game you're playing. If everyone's on the same page, it should be fine. DiTerlizzi looking worlds remain pretty popular even if you're not seeing them in D&D books. That said, no, I would not recommend using her for a random pick up game. There's a good chance she won't fit in.
I'd avoid using well known characters if I were you. It tends to make people think of the source character too much and default to it for any information they don't have on the character being played.
It just pollutes your character concept in other people's minds. If you want to say "They look like this <picture 1> and are wearing this <picture 2> while wielding this <picture 3>" then that's probably fine. But straight up "My character looks like this one from 'pop culture reference'." is both a poor idea and lazy.

Why are you baiting so hard?
I honestly don't get what's in it for you.
Hey, they haven't shown up yet. I interpreted it as a genuine attempt to avoid the shitstorm that discussion of clothes and use of the word, "appropriate," sometimes invite.
i dont see anything wrong with her aside from the choice of clothing. There was a good reason for how she looked and how most people in sigil looked, i'd say that you shold change it around a bit unless you want to be acused of creating fetish fuel (maybe move aways from the one piece swim suit and into the very short pants on a one piece swim suit). Annah was a good character and i see no problem with someone basing his PC or NPC off her. Learn from the best and such
>In the game, Annah's sole deformity is her tail. In the book, however, Annah is described as having beige skin, six functional fingers on each hand, thin black lips that barely frame her wide mouth (which is filled with a chaotic jumble of squared-off teeth and pointed fangs), white hair that covers her head like lamb's fleece in inch-thick curls, and slits of skin instead of ears. She also wears a tightly laced dark-purple bodysuit instead of the mismatching scraps she wears in the game.
They were explicitly to show that even if TNO dies, there are things he's done that will live on beyond him just as they have lived beyond the incarnations that caused them, things neither just nor good whose ripples may spread to unimaginable extents, chains that can only be broken by death itself, holes in the very planes that may never mend, justice that strives beyond life itself and which can never be sated.

Is it okay to use Annah as a look?
>looks at Annah
>looks at the Shardmind
Naw, you're fine.
i fapped to the bestiary in torment
>Pyromaniac mage who opened a portal to the elemental plane of fire inside himself and now survives in constant immolation due to sheer willpower
>not fucking awesome
>Walking suit of armor animated by the soul of its dead wearer and his unshakeable devotion to justice, which has let him overcome death itself
>not fucking awesome
Actually it was all the of the Hive's hedge wizards and low level mages together that opened a portal to the elemental plane of fire inside him.
In a disturbingly /tg/ twist though, it turned out that was his fetish and so it mostly just caused him to get stunned into a state of permanent pyrogasmic bliss/agony
No. No reason it would. Sigil is a city of exotic looks and fashion, it should never be just another D&D western fantasy city. Annah looks exotic partly by heritage and partly by choice, she fits in fine.
So, if i rent a house at somewhere in the Cage, i'll pay rent to somebody i guess? But what happens if i suddenly stop paying the rent? Who comes and evicts me? Is it the Harmonium or what?
Because everyone and their hamster has seen it a gazillion times already, give it a rest.
I personally don't see what's the big deal with hot female characters dressing like they know it. Just look at real life, there are people flaunting their assets everywhere. Tons of people make a living being hot and scantily clad.
I don't think the style would change much. Planescape was always intended to run directly counter to typical fantasy. They had the freedom to run wild with building a society from the ground up, with no basis in earth culture.
Okay so she was sold to the baatezu by her an'arri mother, and so she's an innately chaotic creature who took very well to lawfulness which she used to win her freedom from the baatezu, and now the ta'anari all reject her because they assume the baatezu must still own her but is secretly a spy pretending to not be owned because they don't quite grasp the concept of lawful evil.
Harmonium will evict you but they'll need to have a writ of eviction from the guvnors so a canny basher can stall these things for a while if they have enough money spare or an advocate owns them a big enough favor.
More likely they'll just pay some cutters from the nearest bar to remove you and grab anything you own to sell off.
Note that if the harmonium are involved, that's actually more of a problem because debts can be paid as money, or the harmonium will take you before the guvnor's and the mercykillers will sell you at the slave's market to make good on the debt in terms of both the sale and in terms of you working off your debt and court fees. And any landlord who's taking it to the Guvnor's will likely want to recoup their money from the court case.
>she's an innately chaotic creature who took very well to lawfulness which she used to win her freedom from the baatezu
Not exactly. She hated being a slave and the experience basically broke her and turned her into what she is when TNO meets her. It was actually her chaotic nature which allowed her to outsmart her Baatezu owners and win her freedom in a contract, not her ability to adapt and become lawful.
What makes you think that?
One of my theories is that most of the public sensory stones in the Civic Festhall are actually memories from TNO's different incarnations. One of them is a guy who has sex with a succubus and then dies.
Be honest guys, did you tell Ravel you loved Grace or Annah?
Has anyone else played or seen a character based on one of the PCs in Torment? Guys like Vhailor and Ignus are hard to pull off (both rules wise and otherwise) but I think they'd be a blast to play.
Btw, who built the first building in the Hive? Like, are they built by the Dabuses or did people just arrive there and start building their houses.
I mean, what sort of right to they have to the ground they stand on?
