    So let's hear what party you're playing with at the moment.

    By the way whenever I play an IE game I have a rule that if a character has been dead for more than 8 hours he is dead for good.

    My current party :

    Sherilyn Moonbow : Cha good Moon Elf level 4 Paladin of Helm.

    Str 15
    Dex 15
    Con 12
    Int 11
    Wis 11
    Cha 13

    She wields a greatsword

    Sherilyn is the leader of the party and it was her decision to journey from Suldanesselar to Luskan and then to the Spine of the World.
    She promised two people whom she saved from goblins, that she will train their boy, Keldorn Firecam as a paladin when he is old enough.
    She always helps those in need and both she and her sister Fiona are well liked in Suldanesselar.

    Fiona Moonbow: Neutral Good Moon Elf level 4 Druid:

    Str 10
    Dex 14
    Con 9
    int 12
    Wis 19
    Cha 13

    She wields a sword and a shield.

    Fiona is Sherilyn's sister, even though she is young she is one of the wisest elves of Suldanesselar.
    She often spends entire days in the royal palace, looking at the Tree of Life.

    Jerreth Windwalker: Neutral good Moon elf level 4 fighter.

    Str 14
    Dex 20
    Con 12
    Int 10
    Wis 10
    Cha 11

    He wields a bastard sword and a shield.

    Jerreth is a very agile young elf who surprisingly also hails from Suldanesselar.
    He is the lover of Sherilyn, and he is trying to gather enough courage to ask her to marry him.
    He joined Sherilyn's band without a second thought.

    Crystal Moonmaiden : Neutral good Moon Elf level 4 cleric of Selune

    Str 11
    Dex 12
    Con 13
    Int 12
    Wis 19
    Cha 10

    Crystal is a very young elf who was saved by Ellesime when her family was slain by orcs (Is that original or what?)
    Since she has always been one of Sherilyn's closest friends she happily agreed to join her band.

    She wields a Moonblade and a shield.

    Terran Nightshade Neutral good Moon Elf level 4 rogue

    Str 14
    Dex 20
    Con 13
    Int 10
    Wis 10
    Cha 10

    Terran was born in Suldanesselar.
    At a very young age he discovered that he was extremely stealthy, this quite often led to dismay among the other elves.
    He has known Sherilyn since he was a child, and he cares for her like a sister.
    He is determined to use his skills to keep her safe from harm.

    He wields a shortbow.

    When the group arrived in Targos they actually had a sixth member, the Sorceress Reyna.
    Reyna lived in Suldanesselar with her friend Joneleth.
    Unfortunately she was killed by an orc's axe during the attack on Shaengarne Ford.

    Fortunately the group happened to meet another party member.

    Gabriel Lightbringer: Chaotic Good Aasimar level 2 sorcerer

    Str 12
    Dex 10
    Con 12
    Int 12
    Wis 14
    Cha 20

    He wields a sling

    Gabriel is from Sigil, he stepped through a portal by mistake and ended up in Faerun.
    Unfortunately for him he ended up in the region called Icewind Dale.
    He encountered the group just as they were burying their good friend Reyna.
    After being told that the Legion of the Chimera was attacking towns throughout Icewind Dale, he immediately offered his asistance.


    The party is currently on the way to Shaengarne Bridge (the map with the malarites)

    Well, here is my butt-kicking band of scoundrels.

    1)Arkados Blackmire, Lawful Evil human male Fighter 7/Sorcerer 7, with all his spells chosen for their party buffing or enchantment characteristics: Emotion, Horror, Cat's Grace & Bull's Strength, Blur, charm and dominate.
    Specialty in longswords and with every feat pumped in armored arcana. Wears chainmail armor.
    Has a charisma score of 21 at the time I left off.

    2)Katherine Blackmire, Neutral Evil human female Fighter 4/Rogue 10. The party's trap remover and scout. Dual wields a pair of shortswords with weapon finesse and wreaks havoc with her sneak attack.

    3)Ander Lolias, Chaotic Evil human male Fighter 1/Barbarian 13. The big and dumb guy with a ton of hitpoints. Deals tons of damage with a two-handed axe, his rage abilities, the power-attack feat and a Bull's strength from Arkados. Took a level of fighter so that he could wear the heaviest armor to enhance his tanking abilities.

    4)Kalvairn Levensrau, Lawful Evil elf male Wizard 14. He's the generalist wizard, with all his feats pumped into spell focus and elemental masteries. Deadly with fireballs, acid spheres and death fogs. Also has a multitude of useful spells for divination and other misc. purposes.

    5)Shura, Lawful Neutral human male Monk 3/Fighter 11. Dual wields a bastard sword with specialisation along with a short sword with weapon finesse. The party's mage-slayer with his supreme saving throws, many attacks per turn and his suprisingly high AC even when unarmored. Can scout as well as Katherine and be as good a tank as Ander with the expertise feat. Basically, he's the Feat guy, as can be expected of any fighter.

    6)Generic Cleric (can't remember her name),Lawful Neutral female human cleric 14 of Bane. Nothing special. Heavy armor and mace or morningstar with a shield. Buffs and heals the party. Brought her along simply because healing is needed.

    Every character has a min CHA score of 8 and an INT of 8 as well. I simply despise those who pump their other stats to godly levels in exchange for hideously ridiculous and roleplaying unviable CHA and INT scores.

    So what if my party is weaker than yours? At least they do not have beast-like intelligence, being able to at least feed, wash and clothe themselves and are unobstrusive to the eye at best to most, as opposed to being repulsive abominations. :rolleyes:

    Hey jasper I have that plate armor! It is really good. Wearer is under the effects of protection from evil for one thing. My current party is actually only one guy. I am soloing through the game with a VERY powerful half-orc barbarian, his name is Gagron. His stats are: level 19, strength=28, Dexterity=13, Constitution=18, Charisma, Intelligence, and Wisdom=8. If any of you want to duel with him come join me on gamespy. (hackers will be prosecuted)

    By the way, Jerreth fell in battle during the attack on the horde fortress :(

    Hey kovalis how did you solo the fortress with a BARBARIAN? :confused:

    Here's mine:

    Deathmage: Human Sorcerer, level around 15? The party's offensive spellcaster with a truckload of deadly spells (purely devoted to damaging) and the highest kill count in the party.

    Dodo: Tiefling Fighter8/Rogue7. Hitwoman of the party, dangerous when armed with blood rage. Dual wields longswords.

    Djenne: Aasimar Priest of Lathander14, the healer and launches powerful spells sometimes.

    Craig: Human Bard15, buffs up the party, wields a hammer.

    And my other party:

    Makado: Human Priest of Bane, wielding flails. Your generic priest.
    Slythe (I know.): Tiefling Fighter/Rogue, probably the funnest character I've played. This guy can go toe-to-toe because he has 3*s in Short Swords. Packed with feats like Hamstring, Arterial Strike, Dirty Fighting, Amberdexterity, Two-Weapon Fighting, etc.
    Krysti (I know.): Tiefling Mage/Rogue. Works surprisingly well with Slythe: she specializes in what he does not. Uses bows.
    Madin: Drow Fighter. Your generic tank, wielding a greatsword.

    Yeah, so I'm using a modified version of the UPP. I have yet to complete the game once, though I almost did with a party of my own until I lost the save. Now I'm just trying to get through as fast as I can to see the rest of the game.

    I only have four people in my group right now. More power quicker.

    1. Benanthalin (Heh I know) Half Elf Fighter level 15 I think. Leader of the party, high hitpoints, leads the charge into battle, leads in kills, and generally just a warrior.

    2. Zeppalas Elf Sorcerer, Level 16 very powerful, already into death spells.

    3. Geff Trapspringer-Halfling theif, skilled in all the arts of a theif.

    4. Kellsy-Human Cleric, healing abilities.

    Solo Pally 2 / Sorcerer 27 in HoF. Oh yes, she rocks.

    So far haven't received a single XP from kills in HoF, which is a bit naff, but I suppose with only one level to go it really doesn't matter much. The only thing to deal her serious damage was a failed saving throw when she annimated a festering drowned dead. Bang -> re-load. I do hate rolling 1's.

    My current party consits of:

    Geldin - Aasimar, Paladin of Mystra. He's Lawful Good. He's about level 9 or 10 (not sure which).

    Llendril - Wild Elf, Sorcerer. She's Chaotic Good. She's at level 10.

    Helgren - Half-orc, Barbarian. He's Chaotic Good. He is at level 10.

    Vradena - Drow, Silverstar of Selune. She's Chaotic Good. She's at level 9.

    Laeris - Drow, Rogue. Lawful Good. Level 9.

    Sheris - Moon Elf, Druid. Neutral Good. Level 10.

    I got all my names from the pre-made parties. I'm not very good at coming up with my own fantasy names, so they suited my perfectly.

    Well, my latest, and so far, my favorite party is:

    S'sifaniv: LG Female Half Yuan-ti Painbearer of Ilmater

    Str: 16
    Dex: 10
    Con: 12
    Int: 12
    Wis:10
    Cha:16

    As one of the only children of Kuldahar which the Church of Ilmater was able to save, she has dedicated her life to protecting other innocents, especially those tainted against their will by evil. However, when a threat of unprecedented scope threatens to engulf the entire North in bloodshed, she is forced to look for unespected help out of desparation. She is the party leader.


    Varaki T'Raska: CG Male Drow Rogue/Cleric

    Str: 10
    Dex: 18
    Con: 12
    Int: 11
    Wis: 18
    Cha: 11

    When the Matron Mother, along with most of the rest of his house were discovered to be secret worshipers of Ellistrae, they were ruthlessly hunted by their fellow Drow. Only a few survived to escape to the dubious safety of the surface. In the confusion, Varaki and his sister, Vella, were seperated from the rest of their family. Now, with only each other, they search for any other survivors. Fortunately, they were rescued from a hostile band of barbarians by a wandering Ilmaterian paladin of unusual descent...

    Vella T'Raska: CG Female Drow Transmuter

    Str: 10
    Dex: 16
    Con: 12
    Int: 18
    Wis: 10
    Cha: 14

    What can I say? She's Varaki's sister, and you've already read their story.


    Raster: CN Female Tiefling Fighter

    Str: 18
    Dex: 16
    Con: 16
    Int: 10
    Wis: 10
    Cha: 8

    The offspring of a human and a Tanarii, this warrior hails from the blood-drenched fields of the Blood War. She seems to live for nothing beyond the thrill of battle, but does hold a mysterious charge. She has a bond with the warrior-mage Pyhnasius, though what could unite a half-Baatezu and a half-Tanarii is a true mystery.

    Pyhnasius: LE Male Tiefling Fighter/Mage

    Str: 16
    Dex: 12
    Con: 12
    Int: 20
    Wis: 10
    Cha: 8

    Another one with plane-touched blood, this being of evil is, strangely enough content to follow the commands of a paladin desperate for help into battle. Although distrusted by almost everyone else, he is above all else, a man of his word, and will fight to the end, though what brought him to such an accord is yet another mystery. He is comrade-ina-arms with the half-Tanarii Raster, following her loyally. Sort of like a reverse, evil, brilliant Minsc and Dynaheir. :D

    Falakutos Maliteri: TN Moon Elf Druid

    Str: 14
    Dex: 16
    Con: 10
    Int: 10
    Wis: 16
    Cha: 10

    Yet another of S'sifaniv's unexpected recruits, Fala, as he prefers to be called, has trekked from beyond the northernmost known lands to preserve the Balance. Little is known about him, his mission, or his masters...

    I only have a female human Sorcerer named Arcania and a male drow fighter named Solaufein. The party seems weak, but in reality only the drow fighter is (50% of the party, hehe)
