I plan on playing SCS for the first time using my protagonist and NPCs from BGIIEE.
What kind of party makeup do I need to succeed in this kind of game?
I’ve never installed SCS before and I’m interested in running through BGIEE first and importing my character.
Do I need a lot of arcane spellcasters? Do I need a lot of tanks?
I like to use between 4 and 6 characters. My parties usually include a non-multiclassed arcane caster (like Imoen, Neera, Nalia, Edwin, or the protagonist), one multiclassed arcane caster (Jan, Aerie, or protagonist), one cleric (single or multiclass), one druid (Jaheira works fine), and one thief to handle the locks and traps (Imoen is good enough, but I’ll also use Jan or the protagonist here).
I like as many tanks as possible too. Korgan, Minsc, Keldorn, even Mazzy is great if you build her up. I like having the protagonist here as well, if I dual or multiclass him later.
Thanks for the help!
