    Hmm, tough one. A shame I can't pick Ranger\Mage. I suppose it'd have to be a Human NG Ranger, then.

    If dual-wielding existed, it'd be a CG human ranger - a self-sufficient loner who's got little patience for rules if they obstruct the greater good. Otherwise, a NG human Bard - knows a bit about everything, can carry a tune, can talk his way in and out of a lot of trouble, who needs to help people but not necessarily needing/wanting anybody around for too long. Okay, a bit egotistical there... got carried away.

    Of course, there is another side to that, but hey, crippling loneliness doesn't factor into gameplay. :D

    I adore CG character description, is me down to a tee especially the "Don't like people who push other people around" part. As for class, I have always been very fond of halfling thieves, they're so independant. After thet, it would have to be elven sorcerer (BG1 tutu) or mage.

    I think I would be a human NG Bard who has a great passion for the gnomish art of Tinkering and likes to play druid in his free time. I would be charismatic and wise, not at all dextrous (correct spelling?) and of average intelligence, strength and constitution. Furthermore I have an natural resistance to diseases, have large feet and am very clumbsy at times.

    If that's not possible, I think I would be an NE Rogue who plays Assasin and would kill all who said I could not be the person mentioned above :D

    An LE or maybe CN (as I vary between CG & LE) Drow (or more likely, Human :D ) Mage.
    Intelligent, wise, of fair constution, a dexterity of 6 at best, and at a variable Cha - sometimes I'm really very charming, and sometimes I'm an annoying troll. And usually I'm gaming and woe betide ye should ye disturbe me!

    Thanks Jan!

    I think the whole obsession around evil chars comes from people who are goody-goody two-shoes in real life and want to live life to max in the gameworld.

    I would most likely be a super-intelligent gnome fighter. My alignment would probably be NE or perhaps even CN. Oh, and one sweet day, you would all bow to me, as I would be the ruler of the world.

    And I have copyright on that idea of ruling the world, regardless of what anyone says!

    i'd be a lawful evil human... bard i guess. i dont think i have the discipline to master martial arts or studying magic. But I do dabble in martial arts and have to study for school haha. Yeah, with the allowance for my non-existent singing voice and the fact that I can play no instrument whatsoever, I think I'd make a decent bard

    Definately CG Halfling Thief. Never leave the house (Or hearth and home as they so eloquently put it) and the Attitude of CG thief (Completely oblivious to what others think of me and sticking up for "the little guy")

    [​IMG] Hmmm... I'd lean toward human paladin, but I'm not nearly egotistic or 'holy than thou' for that role :p , not to mention too weak physically. I might end up a half-elf cleric or mage, NG or CG.

    What character class and race would best suit my personality?

    Well, seeing as I own a crossbow, play several musical instruments and like a good old knees up down the bar with my mates, its gotta be a Chaotic Good Human Bard.
