Torment is a small set with 55 commons, 44 uncommons, and 44 rares. These numbers are normal for a small set of this era. Foil cards are included in booster packs with advertised odds of 1 : 70 cards. The set was printed in the USA and Belgium.
Torment was sold in 15 card booster packs. Booster boxes have 36 packs.
The US printing uses sequential collation with 10 × 11 sheets. Packs are back-facing with commons, then uncommons, and the rare last. If a foil card appears, it will appear as the last card in the pack after the rare (if any), displacing a card of the same rarity. This means, for example, a foil rare will replace the regular rare. (It is not possible to get more than one foil in a pack.)

There are two common runs, A and B. Run A contains 30 cards each twice, and run B contains 25 cards each twice. The first six commons are from A and the last five are from B. If there is a foil common, it can displace a card from either sequence. (Presumably, a card from A is displaced 6/11 of the time to ensure that A and B cards remain balanced.)
Run A contains 30 cards each twice. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.
Run B contains 25 cards each twice. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.
The Belgian printing uses striped collation with 10 × 11 sheets and 12 × 11 sheets. Packs are back-facing and contain 3 uncommons, 1 rare, and 11 commons (in that order). Foil cards are inserted only between stripes (in other words, after a card on the left side of the sheet before moving all the way back to the right), displacing a card of the same rarity.

There is a single 10 × 11 common sheet that contains each common card twice. It has been reconstructed by observing pack openings. The choice of top row here is chosen to prevent cards of the same color from appearing next to each other.
