SoD needs a good aligned tank early on
Anybody else have a problem of desperately needing a good aligned tank for the first two or so chapters? There is Minsc, but I had him set up as 2-handed DPS so his AC was quite bad and Khalid as my main tank (AC -8) and club and shield Jaheira as a light back up tank. I am playing a good aligned mage so my initial party was utterly squishy - two mages (Dynaheir and me), archer Corwin, rogue Safana (who I didn't want but she was the only "extra" NPC who even kind of made sense for my charname early game) and then finally I shoehorned in Glint. Before I got Glint, I didn't even have anybody who could cast healing spells so the squishiness was compounded. Minsc was routinely beaten to a bloody pulp after every moderate fight and I had to either rest spam or carry around tons of extra healing potions. Once I got Jaheira, it improved a little because she can be an okay tank, but before that I was actually starting to get genuinely peeved at the game.
Nothing to be done in patches at this point, but the devs might want to bear it in mind in future games. It's a problem I see a lot in RPGs that devs just sort of assume you are playing a big brawny guy and thus won't need a tank.
