I've been brainstorming ideas for an Icewind Dale EE playthrough, and I dug up some old character sheets my very close friend and I made in our early tabletop days. We had two characters each, while my mom was the DM, played in (conveniently) 2nd Edition. So I thought, "How cool would it be to revisit these awesome characters again in the icy wastes of the Dale?"
I've heard you can beat the game with any number of characters in a party. I always preferred a full-party run because I love making characters, but I've only got four to work with this time, and I'd like some opinions. The characters are:
Zarr, a halfling thief. Ashelia, a human cleric. Amara, a half-elf mage. Todd, a human ranger.
I already know that thieves are kinda lack-luster. Might make Zarr into a fighter/thief instead. But otherwise, will this allow enough coverage, even with so few characters? I don't mind a challenge, but I don't want to create a party that's doomed to fail from the very start.
