    As the topic says, what NPC in BG2 and/or ToB would you like to be your best friend? They don't have to be joinable NPCs...

    As for me...gee, I don't know really. I'd say Jan, Imoen or Keldorn...

    I shudder to think the fate of anyone who would choose Neeber.

    I think Valygar. The two of us are very alike. Hates the goverment as it is, and quiet in the group. Very depressive people the two of us.

    Otherwise, Haer' Dalis. I like to play a philosopher.

    I've always dreamed of a sister, brother would be great too but with a sister I think the two of us would be perfect, covering all aspects. Or something. So yes, Imoen here as well. Besides I get along with spirited people a lot better than the dull ones. Simply for being a brother, Sarevok would probably come as a second. Sorry, I just can't ditch out the sibling factor.

    All things considered though, Imoen would pass easily with her nature, perhaps a second place going to either Jaheira or Valygar, both seeming to be being the sort of introspective sort of reliable and loyal people.

    As Velve mentioned, I would take Valygar too. He is the most "normal" character in the game. At least IMO.

    Viconia. 3 words: Friends with benefits. Bringin' on that bunny luvvin'. :D :p

    Seriously, I would choose Valygar. He just seems like a guy who you can count on to get your back, without being preachy or holding grudges. He'd let you be yourself. Imoen runs a close second.

    Sarevok, because he's so mind blowingly cool. Probably Valgyar (sp?) though.

    [​IMG] Definitely Imoen; she's not a dull too-tight nut-cracker without personality. Having a friend like her would definitely brighten my day :cool:

    Valygar, for the same reasons as everyone else.

    Anyone else find it odd that most people seem to be choosing Valyagar here, but he's middle of the pack or lower in the current favorite NPC poll? So basically, we'd want him as a best friend but we wouldn't want to actually do anything with him. :hmm: :D

    Well I'm gonna be a little weird here and say Aerie. I dunno why, I just really like her, sure she wines alot but look at what she's been through. That's a lotta crap especially for her age. I just really like her personality, plus how many people can say their best friend is a flying elf? :cool:

    As a "best friend" I would choose Imoen, because she has a funny sense of humor, and she's the kind of person who wouldn't abandon you.

    For a "lover friend" I would choose Aerie for the obvious reasons. :love: :rolling:

    I would choose Yoshimo. Of course, he'd have to get rid of that whole geas problem. But without that he's the most charming, easy going, loyal adventurous, *SANE* guy in the place.

    Think about it. Minus that one itty bitty problem, which isn't really his fault, wouldn't he be a great friend?

    And as far as a lover-friend, from the female perspective, he and Valygar are the only ones who would be worth considering. Keldorn, maybe if he wasn't *soooo* married.

    [​IMG] I'd like all of them to be my friends. But of course, most don't like each other.

    hmm... Can we say NPCs from Mods?

    I guess I'd like Edwin and Korgan as my male friends. And as for the female relationshipthingie Viconia. Is it so obvious I like evil characters :D ?
    Edwin because he's got such a positive view of life :D . He makes me laugh all the time.
    Korgan because everything is simple when you're around him. Either people like you or you chop of their heads. Ale and chopping, got to love it :D
    Vicci partly because she's the only female character who doesn't annoy me. Imoen, Nalia, Jaheira and Aerie are irritating (Mazzy is okay).
    And partly because she's just really jummy ;) .

    @8people-sure, why not?
    Korgan would be a nice friend...but he'll probably hack me into little chunky pieces if I piss him off. Then again, he'd hack up whoever pisses me off...hopefully...

    Imoen would be my best friend (if not my lover).

    ... and that beholder I keep running into is a nice fella.
