    I used to have a great start for this opic in mind, abouut there never being a BG3 so the guys would need new jobs... bbut now there is, so darn. :(

    Anyways, as it is, we'll be waiting fot the third one, so I figure that the poor NPCs really need some sort of a source for income in the mean time.... so, what do you think as suitable jobs for, say, Keldorn? Or perhaps Firkaag? Irenicus? Nalia?

    (much inspired by an ancient alt.fan.dragonlance thread that ended up suggesting Boeing 707 for Skie.... :p )

    Heh, first time seeing a topic like this.

    Protagonist, Imoen, Aerie, and Viconia went for immortality, so their jobs should be pretty clear. Minsc found a mercenary company, as per original story, and I guess Korgan would do the same until getting an axe to his belly. :D

    Now, Haer'Dalis would still be a bard, but that would be just too obvious; I'd guess he would rather take a new job, like being a royal courtesan in the temple of Lathander. :p

    If it were modern day jobs, Minsc would be a body-guard, Korgan a street-thug, Haer'Dalis a pop-star, Jaheira a nasty-nasty office-lady and a housewife, Anomen a trash-car driver (I doubt he would get anything better :D ), and Valygar would probably be a headmaster of some school. :spin:

    Drows and sunlight are a terrible match, so I'd say Baywatch is out for her. :p

    Oh I m sick of reading Anomen=gay all the time. Its quite annoying considering there is a romance with him for female npc. And he also has the best personnal quest.

    @Chevalier: This is hilarious :D

    I have to confirm Aerie as a romantic movie star, and add Keldorn as a racist televangelist (he's goody-two-shoeness gets reaaal annoying at times). Yoshimo as a a tourist guide (he already does the impersionation pretty well). Irenicus as the New Damien Herst :grin:

    Now that you mention it Edwin actually reminds me of my chemistry teacher. Scary.

    Keldorn: retires and lives on pension.
    Jan: back to the black market, selling illegal fireworks (flashers?). Or maybe a farmer.
    Cernd: Hippi :)

    Edwin would make a decent English teacher too. But regardless of what he teaches, he'll have very little patience with his struggling students.

    You're all wrong about Korgan. He wouldn't be some petty criminal. He would be an international terrorist. He would train troops for the highest bidder.

    LMFAO @ Jahiera as a Talkshow Host. Somehow, it seems strangely appropriate...

    I dated one of those once. Other than the whining, she was remarkably similar to Aerie.
