I've been contemplating picking up IWD:EE. I never played it much back in the day. If I do, there are several theme parties that come to mind, assuming IWD:EE has the same kits as BG:EE. Do any of these sound interesting? Maybe you have some of your own?#1
- Because, +&@#
Wizard slayer, berserker, undead killer, swashbuckler. Tactics: buy/steal lots of potions, point and click to victory and profit!#2
- Married, with children
Beastlord ranger. Totemic druid. Two characters only. Tactics: summon the 'kids' to do most of the killing.#3
One of each druid kit. One of each ranger kit. Tactics: use summons to trip traps. Support the archer.#4
- Inhuman trio
Avenger, Shapeshifter, and Dragon disciple. Tactics: turn into monsters. Eat people.#5
- Synchronized Stabbing (aka, SNEAK ATTACK! bonus points if you get the reference)
Assasin, bounty hunter, shadow dancer, mage/thief, fighter/thief, cleric/thief. Tactics: C/T buffs. M/T invises, each takes position behind an enemy. Watch everyone explode. Variation: 'Et tu, Brute?' Same party. Same tactic. Everyone targets same enemy.#6
- Bare Necessities
Monk. Shapeshifter. Kensai. Tactics: Run around naked. McGruber the enemy.
Not sure how viable any of these are, but they could be entertaining. What say you?
