is the all-purpose servant of a German Captain. The Captain
considers him amoral and stupid, largely because Woyzeck is poor.
Woyzeck also makes money by allowing the Doctor to experiment on
him. He has eaten nothing but peas in order to prove some unstated
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Georg Buchner's
"Woyzeck", it's a really strange play that has unordered scenes --
that is to say that the scenes can be rearranged in any order to
achieve different stories and dramatic effects. This is very
wacky. It's so wacky that it's inspired me to make a new Torment
contest. Here's how you do it:
1. Go to the Great Foundry.
2. Pick four to eight
screenshots that you like.
3. Artistically arrange and narrate
a story with the shots.
The wacky stories can take any form and may use Torment
characters and/or the Planescape setting -- but they don't have
to. You may add other images/text/etc. to the screenshots as long
as they are still recognizable as Torment screenshots. You can put
these gems on webpages, big graphics, Shockwave movies, or other
stuff. Entries should be in English, with random smatterings of
senseless foreign tongues (preferrably German). Send e-mail to Bishop Sawyer with an
image, URL, etc. and a shipping location. Entries must be received
by midnight, 17th of September (St. Hildegard Day). Entries will
be judged on creativity, workmanship, use of foreign languages,
and manifest evidence of mental instability. Please see Edward

4th Place: A random drawing by and stolen from Tim Donley.
* in this case, the "world" is defined as a
solipsistic environment extending out from Colin McComb's
perception, where he is the only true being and, by extension, the
only person capable of holding something in renown.
