I'm having a horrible time trying to start my play-through of Baldur's Gate, which will inevitably lead into its sequel. Mostly because while I find the pre-generated story full of potential...I've spoiled the story for myself, and know what's going to happen for the most part. So I find there's little point to approaching the game traditionally. Instead, I'd like to create a custom party and chronicle the ensuing exploits.
Enter Enkalynn, Elven Fighter/Mage/Thief, and ward of Gorion. Why F/M/T? Because I like multiclass characters and I'm a sucker for the Jack-of-All. Why Elf? Because they're better F/M/Ts than Half-Elves, and it seems like it'd make for wonderful chicanery plot wise. After all, elves aren't considered adults until they get past their first century of life.
Now this is where my plans derail. Mostly because F/M/Ts are horrible slow to level in big parties, and I'd rather not compromise and play a Bard (though really, F/M/T are just everything Bards want to be). So I have to fill out the remaining 2-3 slots with builds that an F/M/T can support. I plan on having Enkalynn be a ranged combatant, focusing on ranged backstabs with a good shortbow (if that's possible...backstabbing in this game isn't very clear).
Thoughts/concerns/death threats, anyone? =D
