    Party members are all level 5 with decent weapons. Any side projects I should do quick before going in? I don't wanna be half way through and "Damn, why did I forget that!?"

    Bring antidotes to help deal with the wyverns/spiders if you don't have a nice stockpile already. you can pick up a good number of them by just going to the temples, the one at the FAI is probably closest.
    Also, freedom of movement is a good thing to have for al the web spell traps in the spider portion of the woods - you can pickpocket a ring of freedom off the female gnome in ulgoth's beard which is worth picking up.

    Also, lvl 5 is still quite low in my experience, though that might be because i usually solo the game so all xp goes to my main character.
    Whenever i do run a party i rush the fishing village and use sleep spells to kill all the ankhegs - doing this solo gets me lvl 5/6 easy, and this way i can spawn companions that are at lvl 6 as soon as they join my party.

    Also keep in mind that you can find eldoth, coran, faldorn and yeslick in the cloakwood - if you have a 6man party but intend to pick either one of them up, it might serve you well to park one of your current members at the FAI, so you don't have to leave them in the cloakwood - it'll be a pain to pick them back up there if you want to do so again at a later time.

    Thanx for your reply:) I'm keeping my current party the whole way through, so I won't be adding anyone. I'm pretty stocked up with everything else I need, so it looks like I'm off to the woods!
