    Just a general little discussion here. I'm curious to see what others have the most fun playing.

    I'm going to say a Dwarven Fighter or Fighter/Cleric. I've had a lot of fun with a Gnome Fighter/Illusionist too.

    I like to be a half-elf fighter / mage. I've tried other character types but that's the one I always come back to.

    For me it's always Human wizard (conjurer), or half-elf rogue.

    Thief: plenty of options just has to avoid being cornered (I dual to get more options, spellcasting or fighting but I really prefer thieves!).

    Human Ranger or Elven FMT (solo). Human Thief from time-to-time, too. I love the tactical options from thieving skills (obviously, this is more pronounced in BGII), and the FMT is a whole world of tactical choice in one neat package. Rangers are just cool. :cool: I quite like clerics, but with Branwen and Viconia, you don't really need your PC to be one too. Generally, I like characters who are all-rounders rather than specialists.

    BG1 and BG2
    Half-Elf or Elf
    Chaotic Good or Chaotic Neutral
    Cleric/Mage
    Figther/Mage
    Figther/Thief
    Mage/Thief
    Fighter/Mage/Cleric
    Fighter/Mage/Thief

    PNP D&D all depends upon my rolled stats. Most of the time actually I was the DM, so rarely played one secific character.I played all sorts.

    I usually play as a Bard, simply because they're generally useful (even if you can't attack, you can always bard song, and spells come in handy), but I've wanted to play as a Dwarven Fighter/Thief... if you start with a 19 Constitution, you can do very well solo with that character, as you'll have no trouble healing (+1 Constitution will allow you to regenerate, plus your Child of Bhaal abilities), plus be able to get around traps and open locks with ease.

    I think I'll have to say male human paladin. ;) I did enjoy playing and micromanaging the NPCs with their classes but I'm not sure I would be equally comfortable with any other class for the PC.

    Like chev, I too would choose a male human paladin.

    But with a better sense of humour. :p

    I have decide on my new favorite character. I Gnome Clerice/Mage.

    Stats
    Str 10
    Dex 18
    Con 15
    Int 19
    Wis 17
    Cha 19 (Tome +1)

    Magical Items: Ring of Wizardary, Ring of Holiness, War Hammer +2, Large Shield +1, Bracers of AC 7, and Traveler Robe.

    I can't wait to get into Baldur's gate and get the GoOP and truly use him as my tank. Before that I hope to get enough gold to buy the Robe of the LG Mage. That would definitely help out my AC.

    Here is my party...
    PC - Cleric/Mage
    Minsc - Tank
    Khalid - Archer / Melee Support
    Kivan - Scout / Archer
    Imoen - Thief
    Ajantis - Tank
