I've tried and failed to play through the entire BG saga a few times - and I really want to do it.
My party for BG2 would be Aerie, Anomen, Keldorn, Neera (or Jan?), Mazzy
In BG1, I like AJantis, Neera, and I'm open to the idea of any others.
What class(es) would be best? I was thinking Blade or Swashbuckler might be fun, but not casting in armor and only getting level 6 spells sounds too restrictive. Swashbuckler is a thief class, which to me tend to be a weird choice for CHARNAME. If I were to be Mage, I'd be Wild Mage and roll with the punches, but I find the idea of roleplaying them kind of hard and it's kind of sad to get a whole bunch of cool loot and the Mage can't really use any of it... Fighter/Cleric also sounds fun, but it might be overkill with Aerie and Anomen. I'm quite fond of Paladins, but I kind of like Ajantis and Keldorn and think it would be a bad idea to make CHARNAME one.
I'm crippled by this choice. Tell me what is really missing from my BG2 party and help me, please.
