I'm still playing BG EE, but I plan my parties well in advance. I'm a bit split on whether or not one of my arcane caster slots should be Neera or Aerie in SoA. Who would be more useful? So far, I know for a fact that I will have a barbarian MC, Minsc, Imoen, and 2 other NPC's in my party, if that helps.
Also, how do the romances stack up? I've only tried Viconia and Jaheira.
