    My party-to-be:
    Drow Weapons Master - Grah'huk, CG
    Aasimar Cavalier - Leishara, LG
    Ghostwise Halfling Assassin - Asthin, CN
    Human Arcane Rogue (dual later) - Rethna, NG
    Aasimar Battleguard of Tempus - Aerias, LN
    Deep Gnome Illusionist - Ancalagon, CG

    Probably will dual the rogue to a mage, so he can cast the spells that the illusionist can't.

    Thx, Ragusa. Maybe I should pay more attention to IWD updates.

    [​IMG] Grah'huk,
    I fear your main char of choice cannot be the wizard-slayer: This kit was ditched in favour of the Landsknecht.
    The remaining fighter kits up to now are: weapon's master, ravager and landsknecht.

    3. Female Human Monk, Yeah!
    4. Female Tiefling Swashbuckler, wields Two Longswords
    5. Male Gnomish Illusionist, prefferably named Igbut
    6. Male Human Battleguard (?)

    [​IMG] Okay ... I was tempted to start a new thread, but I figured we could just re-work our party ideas in the Classic Ragusa Fashion.

    So ... considering the fact that Kits are out & 3E multi-classing is in ... what will your party look like?

    Aasimar Paladin
    Gold Dwarf Barbarian
    Wood Elf Ranger
    Ghostwise halfling Bard
    Tiefling Druid
    Drow Sorcerer

    I'm kinda week on thieving skills, which is fine because I never sneak...I just need someone to picklocks and find traps.

    Hmm, considering the changes I have to readjust my chars of choice as well ... so my original party now looks like
    • Lord Belmen, aasimar Paladin of Illmater or Paladin of Helm (multiclassed - gains either cleric (Ilmather) or fighter (Helm) levels - I haven't yet decided) - I want him multiclassed since the aasimar's fav class is paladin, so he won't have a malus. He'll be fighting melee only (anything else wouldn't be honourable, he'll never use peasant's weapons like halberds either) - my cavalier pendant :(
    • Sir Donaldus, halfling pure paladin(legit this time ;) , all classes will be open for all races!!!)
    • Imrahil, woodelf ranger putting all his efforts in bows, my archer ;)
    • Arabakus Strongshield, gold-dwarf mc fighter-cleric - I know I'll need healing :D
    • Caffrey Beamish, lightfoot-halfling mc rogue-wizard, maybe even rogue-fighter-wizard - perhaps a little daring, considering the xp-penalty but also very promising combos ...
    • Yet Open, :D, considering the countless glorious deeds of the heroes above, a lightfoot-halfling bard might be nice, or a wise wizard or sorcerer ... I'll see

    As for multiclassing and pally's or monks read J.E. Sawyer's first post: http://feedback.blackisle.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=29811

    Well, I might as well scap my previous idea. But, here it goes:

    Grah'huk, Drow Fighter, spec in two-weapons,
    Leishara, Aasimar Paladin
    Asthin, Ghostwise Halfling thief, might take a few levels of sorc or wiz.
    Aerias, Aasimar Cleric, Backup warrior.
    Rethna, Human Bard/Sorc. Specialize in support spells.
    Ancalagon, Deep Gnome Illusionist.

    * Now if they remove all the special races, I'll raise (explicative deleted). I've already lost my wizard slayer, but I will not stand for losing my Drow Elf.

    A Human Male Bard/Fighter, Lingrin Songe.
    A Wild-elven Female Rogue/Sorcerer, Teresa Shadowspell.
    A Ghostwise Halfling Male Barbarian/Rogue, Ferrul Raige.
    An Elven Male Fighter (or pally, haven't decided), Gen Oakbow.
    An Aasimar Female Cleric, Faith Everlast.
    An Elven Male Wizard (or fighter/wizard, again haven't decided), Magicus.

    OK, there's my six-member party, Lingrin's Leopards.

    I am also thinking about a second party for IWD-2 (if I stand the guilt of doing evil things all game):

    -Portoss, Human Stormlord of Talos (natural leader :D ) using FLAILS
    -Arloth, human fighter-bard
    -Snagar, Duergar fighter
    -Faltarin, Drow fighter-sorcerer
    -Erloth, "The Dagger", Tiefling rogue-fighter
    -Shnarff, Half-Orc barbarian-rogue (or better: thug :D )

    Just a thought ...

    Gunthar - Human Paladin
    Renkhar - NG Dwarven Tank
    Kevlin - LN Half-Elf Fighter/Cleric
    Lisanne - NG Human Sorcerer
    Niome - CG Aasimar Cleric
    Griedvar - CN Svirfneblin Illusionist/Thief

    Of course Greidvar is really a long lost Svirfneblin cousin of Jan Jansen :grin: . Or I might have to rearrange my party to include my psychotic CN Half-orc Barbarian/Thief (don't even think of backstabbing him) Kharlum. The only good thing about PoR, was that it had a good character model for him.

    [​IMG] I have a question...Will drow elves actually be able to levitate, cast faerie fire, and globe of darkness in this game? Does anyone know?

    nope, I think that Drow in IWD2 (As well as in NWN) would be an aesthetic choice.

    Any word on whether the Drow's magic resistance will block healing, like it did in BG?
