    I am playing pure class Ranger right now. I like the option to use metal armor, particularly Elven chain and the disadvantages of the various Ranger sub-classes bother me.

    I've got a party of all dual-classes: a Ranger/Cleric, Cleric/Ranger, Fighter/Druid, Druid/Fighter, Thief/Mage, and Mage/Thief. But my Charname is a Bounty Hunter/Mage, so it's a mage, I suppose.

    Normally I play lots of casters, mostly Mages or Cleric/Mages. More options that way.

    Currently running a CE halfling assassin solo through the trilogy and a dual F->T "approximation" of ol' Artemis Entreri. Loving it!

    A lawful neutral elf barbarian/mage who wields a sword that is a ranged weapon. He also has a pet squirrel.

    Several, but if I had to specify a "main" playthrough at the moment, it'd be my half-orc cleric of Kelemvor in BG2. He's a fun one.

    I'm playing an Undead Hunter run through both games on SCS for the very first time.

    Fyi polls only allow 10 options or I'd have included multi classes on the list, guessed they might be popular!

    Last week - a totemic druid

    The week before - a rogue in Pillars of Eternity

    One month ago - a blade in a multiplayer run

    This week - a wizard slayer

    Next week - who knows?:)

    Swashbuckler because stabbing people in the back isn't my thing and anything but a rogue isn't an option.

    Excellent justification

    CN blade in my current BG1. Who is a complete loony. And a goody goody pally in BG2. But am also planning a ranger. Have never tried out one of those yet and it's becoming embarrassing having playing the game since it came out

    Whilst I've had great fun playing Clerics and Mages I keep going back to Fighters.
    For some reason I've never felt the inclination to play a thief, but I suppose I should sometime as I like the way that different classes make a difference to how I play the early game (before I've acquired a full party).

    I'm a monk in BG. Very difficult keeping him alive (lackluster AC and HP, but great saves)...

    Bard - Skald build.

    I enjoyed the versatility of bard in Neverwinter Nights and NWN2. I would multi-class into a warrior to give him the ability to stand toe-to-toe with some enemies.

    I can't do it in BG, but I can still be the best bard I can be damn it.

    Fortunately Skald and even more so the Blade are perfectly capable melee fighters with some decent weapons and/ thac0 improving items. Best suggestion I could make is to get 19 or more strength asap.

    Last night I picked up my cavalier again, but I have so many save files on both games, it's hard to say which one takes priority...

    In BG:EE (my first EE playthrough):

    Thief-Illusionist

    BG:EE run as another user (shift-rightclick on the .exe 'run as different user') so I can have parallel campaigns:

    Totemic Druid

    In BGII:EE (my first enhanced Shadows of Amn):

    vanilla Mage (he's my only mage in the party and I found it hard to exclude schools, thus vanilla, the only other arcane caster in my intended setup is Keto the Bard, I hope it is sufficient, I usually run with 2 1/2 arcane casters instead of 1 1/2)

    Play wild and exclude no schools :)
