Despite having destroyed a few BG/BG2 disks through over use, my experience of IWD amounts to a single evening's play on a borrowed disk way back in the mists of time. (My schoolmate demanded the game back after we had a Pog-related disagreement... that's how long ago it was!)
So this leaves me in the nice position that on release, I'll be able to attack the game with *zero* meta-game knowledge.
I always like my PC to reflect the 'intended' story line, as it helps with my RP'ing.
(As an example, I started NWN2 as a Paladin... got through the prologue and then immediately rerolled as a I felt a Ranger was a better fit for that background.)
So, I'm asking for suggestions for appropriately thematic classes/ kits for my first run.
(Basically, I'd like to avoiding mistakes like building a team entirely composed of Elves and then discovering that they originate from a Dwarf village!)
