    Hello all! :p
    [Sorry for the "short" forthcoming intro, jump to the end of this post to find my very simple question regarding what 6 characters are featured in the novel by Carrie Bebris inspired by this adventure.]

    After years, I decided to pick up this game once again and give it a shot.
    We are all well aware of its bugs and cracks, but there's something that makes me want to see the END of the whole story at any rate - probably the huge amount of time spent after this glitchy adventure, it's almost a personal question now.

    I surfed the web, came to this site as a start and found the link to the sample chapter of the novel inspired by this game and published by the WotSC; it's decently pleasurable to read and actually convinced me toward starting a story-based party so as to give a stronger role/rpg-like feeling to this game to compensate the poor, restrictive role opportunities (little interactions and characterizations, poor dialogues, bla bla bla).

    Now, I finally managed to solve the problems of installation (it sounds weird, but I sorted out the issue of the game blocking out when started after the 4 intro movies by taking the CD out of the drive! *lol*).
    Then, I went on to check the MODs available, and decided to try out the XP one (correcting the amount of experience points given accordingly to 3rd edition), this resulting in having four 10-level characters as soon as I am out the Main Halls, that is wwwaaayy tooooo muuucchh XP given.

    I re-installed the game this morning; and I've come to the conclusion the best solution to eliminate my indecision for a decently rpg-like party is to make up the party portrayed in the novel, of which I could only read the first sample chapter available on the WotSC archives onlilne.
    The adventure starts with 4 "reluctant" characters volunteering to group up and venture, at the presence of Elminster, who can obviously be found in the rooster: the "chosen", according to the book, are Corran d'Arcy, Ghleanna Stormlake, the dwarf fighter Durwyn and Kestrel.

    Now,from a review on Amazon I learnt that in the novel, the party ends up of 6 characters, and I don't know who the other 2 are: which of the many npcs am I supposed to pick up then?
    I know it's not vital, but I am still curious to know.
    My guess is they are Faeril and Athan, the two most "back-grounded" npcs of the whole lot.

    Thank you for any help provided. :D
