    I'm using a human fighter(9) for the killing power, Roque (2) for recoveing traps for $$$$$, and ranger (2) for the dual weild (Longswords, he slices, he dices!).
    I started with Tomi, but switched to Linu. Her undead turning sweeps minor undead like a broom and her healing keeps me swinging during tough fights.
    I'm thinking of dropping her and going alone for more experience. It seems that a romance could develope with her, though. Anyone know if NWN has romances?

    Randall Wystan: 6/5 paladin/fighter. Fighter for feats and Discipline class skill (when fighting a dangerous enemy, I'd like to spend as little time on my back as possible, thank you.), Paladin for special abilities and Persuade (Yeah, I know I'm a noble knight and all that, but you don't think you could give me all your savings, too?). Primary henchman: Tomi. He just rocks, although he often sees a trap on the other side of a door (how?) and goes to disarm it, opening the door onto a huge crowd of baddies that hack him apart before I can call him back. If I can get the enemies focused on me, however, he does as much damage with his sneak attacks as my character does with greatsword specialization.

    Sharwyn is a good multi-purpose character, and her song and the enhancement spells she casts on my pally/fighter make him a real juggernaut in battle, but her lockpicking skills are far inferior to Tomi's and she goes down incredibly fast if even a few enemies get to her. She would be my second choice.

    I play a pure blooded elven sorceror. great for offensive and defnsive. better then the mage as they can use more of the meta magics... more spells= more pain
    the only problem ive had with him is anicent red dragons. i just dont have the kind f spells to take them out. they are immune to all my main varieties.... fire and lightning are my specialties.on black dragons i do 120 damage a hit with my maximized chain lightnings.... defense isnt a worry either as i can fight a balor lord with out getting 1 damage for at least 10 minutes. and my defenses are set to last for 1 day with the help of my metamagics.

    fighters are good but .. not as fun ( to me anyway )

    im terribly weak against monks though.... they seem to kill me way to easy

    I have a male human cleric of Tyr (that's what I put in the slot for deity at any rate.) My character's henchman is Red Tiger, he's almost too good at killing things for me but he'll keep the crowds of badies away while my cleric comes up with something nasty to do to them.

    im a sorceror that happens to be immune to all spells that i have seen thrown a him. I mademy own items withou hacking them and it seems that not only is he resisant to alot of combat damage but he is almost immune to magic.*exept some cleric spells*. when i acually bother to use spell protections he is immune all spells ( for a while) and he is hard to kill with a fighter to .

    [​IMG] I play as a 6th level ranger- 3rd level wizard. My familiar pixie takes care of the thief aspect of my party, and I have pretty much everything else that a party could need: As a ranger, I can cast divine spells and fight, and as a wizard, i can cast arcane spells. I had Daelen as a henchman for a while, but then I ditched him when I got the Greater Swordsman's Belt. Trust me on this- you don't need any help when you get the belt, and help costs you experience. Get the belt!

    I play as a Lvl 9 Human Fighter, I use Tomi every once and a while but I prefer solo.
    I also use an axe and a shortsword most of the time (Clangeddins Wayward Axe and Shortsword of Quickness, for the speed) But sometimes I use the ole fashion longsword and shield (Astral Blade +2 and Large Shield +3)

    P.S. I smash everything possible. :D

    [​IMG] I used a ranger rogue, mostly taking levels in rogue through the game with Linu. I occasionaly used Daelan and Gringnaw, but I couldn't stand the annoying cockney voiced halfling. How I wanted to kill him ;) .

    I haven't been happy with the henchmen... if there was the character development of BG II, I might put up with their poor scripting, but as it is, they screw up my tactics more often than I can stand.

    For solo adventuring, I haven't found a better mix than fighter/thieves or ranger/thieves... rogue skills allow them to move through the dungeons with ease and plan attacks, fighting skills and hitpoints allow them to survive alone.

    In NWN, a Paladin-Champion, Sun Elf.
    My favorite is Linu. I do hire the others because I leave no stone unturned. When you hire them, each HenchPerson gives you a personal Item, keep it. Every time I find something that I have no idea what it does or is for I talk to everyone. It ends up that each person has a Mission for each chapter, from when you meet them. After completeing their goal they give the main charcter something useful, which over the chapters increases in usefullness.
    Yup, even the evil aligned charcter/s. "For the glory of Aribeth...uh Tyr"

    Thelsaeyndra Zhanil'yln - Paladin(1)/Sorceress(4)

    Not quite high enough level to hold her own with spellcasting therefore she is relegated to high spell failure armors and her trusty Short Bow +1 while Daelan beats the holy hell out of anything that moves, so long is it doesn't have a knockdown attack... The funny thing is with her +6 attack and Rapid Shot she's not a half bad archer. Now if the Arcane Archer prestige class comes into play with the expansion...

    And of course there is her trusty pixie sidekick Ziyi with all the theiving abilities of Tomi minus the annoyance. And if you can't disarm that damn trap, posses her and you have a kamakazi trap disarm. :)

    Now if I could just heal I would be set...
