Which class should a new NPC in the Adventure Y have?

JuliusBorisovJuliusBorisov Member, Administrator, Moderator, Developer Posts: 22,133
As we know, the Adventure Y will give us at least one new NPC whose name starts with "Gl". Maybe there will be more. But it's interesting to get a look on forumites' views on which, from your point of view, class should a new NPC have. You can mention a kit in your comment here. There're only 10 options available for the poll, so I've decided to mention mages and sorcerers in one option (as well as fighters and barbarians in another).

So far, Beamdog gave us:
Rasaad (Male LG Human Sun Soul Monk)
Neera (Female CN Half-Elf Wild Mage)
Dorn (Male NE Half-Orc Blackguard)
Baeloth (Male CE Drow Sorcerer)
Hexxat (Female NE Vampire Thief)
Wilson (Bear TN Grizzly Bear)
So, GO FOR THE VOTES!

    I'm a fan of interesting multi/dual class combinations personally. That being said a non-terrible bard would be nice

    I like your unedited response better. What are you hiding behind that NDA of yours?

    Commoner.

    Though I'd also settle for some Miner geezer in his prime.

    *Checks bag labeled NDA*

    An old pair of socks, some crumpled paper, and one of those drinking birds

    But in terms of this everything and nothing. If that leaves you confused then that makes two of us :)

    I concur with @booinyoureyes
    A female barbarian.
    Or more exactly someone mixing the bard and barbarian classes (one way or the other).

    My money's on a Ranger/Cleric multiclass since nobody is one of those yet.

    Either that or a Barbarian. A triple class is probably out of the question too.

    I guess I could do with a ranger WITHOUT brain damage.

    Isn't that a pre-requisite?

    I meant, int is their dump stat afterall...

    Actually does make sense. Make him/her a halfling, who was living beside dwarfs and just wants to be a dwarf. Lots of backstory/funny potential in that one.


    Other than that, I vote for Bard or Cleric. Adventure Y, being an intermezzo won't be as long and epic as BGEE or BG2EE and a well-written (eg - not spoony) bard might be interesting for a while.
    I don't find bards all too useful so I rarely put up with them in the long run, but this might be a good refreshing run.
    Plus - I find Jaheira bossy and annoying, Anomen annoying and obnoxious and Aerie whiny and annoying in BG2EE. Cernd is not bad, but neither he is good so I basically have/want to use Viconia 95% of the time. A change might be nice. (No Vicky, you are the only one I swear!)

    A dragon disciple so I don't always have to play one!

    How about making him/her a half-orc with high strength and constitution so we could have a front-line arcane caster that can actually cast higher than 6th level spells?

    A grizzled giant squirrel, of course.

    Why not a miniature giant space squirrel?

    A lawful neutral sorcerer with a romancible ferret familiar named Stoat the Ferret Lord, eater of :cookie:s, slayer of fish, conqueror of the seventeen salty salads, mascot of the Ferret Force Five!

    Where's the gazebo option?

    All the gazebo options are in the eye of the beholder.

    Not so much "new" but an interesting idea. In 3.0 we see the rise of "Dragon Discipline"

    what if we had a character coming to terms with the dragon heritage in the party and its based around levels and every time they get a new ability it moves forward with their story. We can watch them either embrace their changes and influence their decisions or we can watch them slowly wither and become fearful of the monster that they are.

    So, the majority so far votes "for something new".

    The most interesting is that SethDavis also put his voice here. Looks promising.



    Even if it's not a gazebo.



    Maybe a goblin then?
