    Give the details of one character you created that you really enjoyed- doesn't have to be the most "uber powerful" build, or even the prettiest-but the character you had the most fun playing with.

    I really enjoyed the Deep Gnome Paladin(3)/Fighter(4)/Rogue(3)/Illusionist(20) tank build. Enough AC to stand in the middle of enemies, good melee power, excellent rogue skills and on top of it all, almost full-time mage. What more can one hope for?

    My drow paladin(10)/sorcerer(12+), because I have this idea of that character and I find him really cool. Besides, he's a very powerful fighter too, due to mirror image and other sorcerer buffs.
    I especially like him when he's wearing as much luck enhancing items as possible, because sometimes he scores so much criticals the earth doesn't stop shaking. :)

    My favourite character was a pure fighter deep gnome... I was extremely sloppy with feat allocation- but his stats were pretty good. I can only remember that he specialized in dual wielding long swords, which I thought was pretty cool at the time.

    Compared to other characters I've made since then, he was extremely weak, but I found it really fun to be able to go invisible at will with my *tank* and attack enemy mages up close, completely bypassing their guards.

    My drow pure sorcerer, Orzt.
    He's not that uber (for a sorcerer) but he just got a cool attitude that just screams "Beg for mercy, or *suffer*".
    He is aligned, and RP'ed, good, but he is agressive and will not take verbal or physical abuse, under the motto, with a fireball rammed down your throat you won't be so mouthy.
    I'm loving it

    Fighter/Thief Halfling, NaKia Nightshadow. I didn't start out to make a special character, just wanted a thief. She really seemed to develop on her own. She is fun loving and sees adventure as a great game. I know a lot of people think thieves suck in IWD II but she did a lot and was very aggressive. She had a mind of her own. When they come to take me off to the ward I'll probably think I'm her.

    High-level clerics with high wisdom rule my day. Practically no saving throw on Greater Command is just... nice.

    Well one character I always have in my multiple-character partys, is a chaotic neutral figher or barbarian called "Kane the Insane" (tm). So cool

    My favourite character was inspired by my Pnp thief for ADD2:

    Half Elf CN level 21
    (14 16 13 12 13 13)
    Rogue 11
    Battleguard of Tempus 5
    Fighter 5

    I tried to solo the game the first time I played... and I never had so much fun!
    Of course I made many mistakes (improved initiative :( ) but it was awfully amusing to get surrounded by hordes of monsters and start hacking away!!!

    Sometimes the characters with "flawed" builds are the most fun, at least in my experience... Though, was anyone surprised that improved initiative didn't work? Seriously, it sounded too good to be true!

    Homer Simpson: Human Barbarian (+ 1 level of Bard for his time with the B-Sharps). He made regular use of the Rage skill and only used Hammers for weapons.

    Solo Drow NG
    Fighter4/Ranger4/rogue3/Evoker19
    12/17/12/20/13/6
    Dual wield with weapon finesse/spec, decent bow skills(rapid and weapon spec), enough points for skills for rogue/mage/talking, good mix of buffs and fire aoe, decent bab, ac, saves, and resistance. Since I took evoker 1 at L12, it took awhile before I could buff enough to survive normal difficulty. Character is very versatile allowing you to change tactics per battle if you get bored. Normal fights consisted of buff, hide, walk in middle release a sunfire, hack away.Only regret is that thru normal I only hit L25 and didn't get my last spells.

    I agree, the Homer character is funny. ^^

    Just for laughs I rolled up & exported for future use, Clark the Aasimar Paladin. I don't remember all his exact stats, but he's got 18 str and really low wis (anyone that watches Smallville will understand :p ).
