    To be honest, I like Gnome Illusionst/Thief. Improved Invisibily, Improved Haste and go (back) stabby stabby. I imagine a leprechaun Bill Burr going on a psycho-serk shouting POW POW, HOE YOU LIKE THAT LADY, POW POW POW, HOW ARE YOUR CUPCAKES NOW, POW POW POW

    @instructor , You sound like Belkar. If you don't know who Belkar is, check out http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0001.html

    Belkar is the sexy, shoeless god of war of D&D.

    Human Swashbuckler && Half-orc Monk (can be a human too)

    ...basically...Half-Orc or Human Thieves or Fighters, Lawful Evil aligned.

    Thanks for the welcome @Arctodus ! Work has prevented a lot of play this week and I think its about time I dust him off.

    Actually, playing a CN Bard has one addendum. You get to have a cat familiar.

    I also enjoy bards. Ever since I played my first IE game, IWD1 in 2001, I always had a bard in those teams. In BG1&2 are not as useful, but I did finish the game twice with a bard.

    Of course, bards are in IMO far better in IWD1&2 and in BGs I only used non-kitted bard or skald. I don't like Blades.

    Acrher. I tend to play archers in games in general. It's very convinient to shoot enemies before they get close to you (unless they got range weapons, too) :)

    So i will never play a CN bard. Now, if one could get a beagle familiar, ... but my beagles get pretty familiar already, so maybe not

    In BG2, CN Dwarven Berserker drunk on cocktails of potions is what I do best :)

    In a lot of other games I most enjoy playing a stealthy dual-wield backstabbing human rogue.

    PnP I used to play human mages a lot but that's a long time ago now.

    I've never liked playing any divine caster type classes. Even now, clerics/druids/paladins etc do nothing for me. Maybe it's the deity/religion bit that doesn't work for me - my characters are too free-willed and want to do things their own way (must be an extension of my own personality!)

    Dwarven Defender. Leaders lead from the front. And what other martial can beat Sarevok?

    An Assassin.

    Arrows of Dispelling, Arrows of Explosion, Potion of Invisibility (as many as possible) and Staff of Striking.

    Too bad the Thief Stronghold in BG2 is so lame.

    Human bard or elven wild mage. No other options. At least in BG1 and BG2.

    If we're talking IWD and IWD2, and most other fantasy RPGS, I'm most likely to set my party leader as a divine caster, usually a human but sometimes an elf or other race. In order of most to least frequency: Paladin, Cleric, Ranger, Druid. The only major exception to this rule was the one time in IWD2 I started out with an elf ranger in the lead but before we left Targos the tiefling necromancer had become the permanent party leader and stayed that way the entire playthrough.

    If I am not a divine caster in any game I will likely default back to mage or bard.

    This is a good measure of my tabletop behavior as well, unless you stick me with a DM who lets me play a githzerai monk because given the option I WILL play a githzerai monk. The only thing that's kept me from doing that in IE games is the absence of the option.

    The paladin/ wizard can be approximated by Might & Guile's gallant. A scroll- reading fighter with an aura to help allies.

    I blame Icewind Dale 2 here. It spoiled me with it's Paladin of Mystra option. And the nice thing about how IWD2 handled that combination, is that it was actually kinda hard to make yourself overpowered stat wise, if you wanted to be halfway decent as a paladin and as a Wizard.

    Honestly, I'd even be down for Inquisitor over Cavalier, as Dark Wizards are even worse than Dragons and Demons to a degree. But I can't really see a Paladin without the upper level priest spellcasting.

    ... while those party members are standing right there in the party for no reason except to show that it can be done.

    Haha, you and me both. Often I don't even bother giving them items and just stack it all in my bag of holding since they won't use it anyways.

    Man, how I wish I could make Bard/Ranger multiclass. I hate having to choose between two favorites.

    You do realize that, as a ranger/bard, you would be required to:
    1. Cut down trees
    2. Wear high heels
    3. Suspenders
    4. And a bra
    And perhaps hire six members of the RCMP to follow you around, singing harmony.
    For those who might not get the reference:
