    [​IMG] Neo- Nothing is wrong with it, really. It just strikes my funny bone. See, the TA is shortened from his full nick: Blackthorne The Abominable. It just seems a bit oxymoronic thinking of "Mr. Blackthorne The Abominable".

    rotf!! Sorry! Just my warped sense of humor, I guess. Either that or lack of sleep, and it won't seem so silly after I get some...

    No offense intended to anyone, most especially the Great and Mighty Wizard himself... :D

    Alas poor Khalid is dead. Should have resurected him. Try the two other party suggestions I made and see if you like them. I think you might. I'd suggest some evil possibilities, but since your a Paladin, never mind. Kivan is a nice character and can be found in the area to the west of Beregost along the path leading to the mages house. Otherwise, I can't suggest any more good aligned characters. Quayle is neutral and will complain with a high rep, but his banter back and forth with Minsc and Dynheir is pirceless. Something about gnomes and their dialog in BG and BG2. Who knows.

    This may be a bit overdue, but DEATH TO ALL PALADINS! I like to fry Ajantis with a lightning bolt or three. Khalid is a wuss I don't care hoe much HP he has. My party consisted of Myself, the Neutral Evil Fighter-Mage, Viconia, Xzar, Montaron, and Edwin. I also had either Branwen or Faldorn for the extra healing I can't remember which. I kill all who anger me and still have an easy enough time through this game. Screw the NPCs. If they don't like my paladin hunting I kill them too.

    [​IMG] Whats the benifits of having Xzar in your party? Not Xan the elven wuss but Xzar the insane green necromancer that is incredibly weak! Does he become useful at any point in the game?

    Ah well, there's not much you can get out of a necromancer.
    However, Xzar and Monty are a bit more tied into the plot as some other NPCs. They actually have a Zhent subquest in Baldur's Gate city. (They are Zhentarim agents).

    Necromancers may not be able to do illusion, but they can still be pretty useful. Plus he's fun to have around. I like his insane rantings. Xan is cool too, I like to have him in my party as long as he doesn't bitch too much.

    I kinda liked Necromancers in BG. If you have other mages, what's to worry about if you loose a few spell posibities. I had an Invoker, an Illusionist/cleric, and a fighter/mage, so obviously I had all the spells covered. But I thought the Necromancer I tried out did fine.

    [​IMG] Hé Neo Reeves, Na BG1 is BG2 helemaal fantastisch, dus bewaar je Palandin voor BG2.
    En neem Yeslick, I.P.V. Branwen, als hij niet is verdronken in de cloakwoodmines.

    Hehe..I was browsing through all the forums and even though nobody cares and it's not even interesting, I'll translate the above Dutch:

    "He Neo Reeves, after BG1 Bg2 is wonderfull, so save your paladin for BG2. And take Yeslick instead of Branwen, if he is drowned in the Cloakwood Mines"

    So. Everybody happy.

    See you all on ALFA.

    Magnus

    Ahh, a fellow mage come to my favorite site. Nice to see you here Magnus. No equipment, and only a few levels, and no classes either, but at least the moderators don't trash your name around here. I hope you stick around.

    Why not Khalid instead of the paladin? 1 paladin seems to be enough to me. Or the ranger that is in High Hedge, he is very powerfull too.
     
  17. Sol'Kanar Guest

    Kill Khalid! Kill the Paladin! Kivan is pretty damn strong, and minsc is good too.
