Ok, so I want to do a Cavalier full run, pulling in some of the new NPCs along the way.
My party for BG2 onwards will be:
Imoen (Yoshimo temping)
My problem is party composition in BG1. I'd like to do Rasaad's quests, so it makes sense when I meet up with him in Trademeet, but don't really want to carry him around for the entire game (I've dabbled with Monks in BG1, and even min/maxed found them frustratingly weak).
My question to you kind folks is whether I can pick him up early, get his quests out of the way and then drop him off before the end game.
Is this possible? Or are his quests similar to Dorn's (requiring access to Baldur's Gate to complete).
Without too many spoilers, how tough are his quests? Am I going to need a few miles on the clock first?
My party (with him), would be:
Yeslick (Branwen early doors)
But I'd like to bring in Kivan or Coran for the later chapters, and do not want to drop any of the front 5.
Much obliged for any advice...
