I don't have much to say except to reiterate how much I'm enjoying what you've done so far. As I said before, I think you have a really vivid writing style and I love the little characterisation details (such as Ausar thinking an elf would never start a tavern brawl, Imoen shooting at imaginary gibberlings after her critical hit). Have you thought much about whether you'll stick with a core party of 6, or if you'll switch people in and out?

@energisedcamel, I really appreciate you noticing those little things. Including them is part of what makes the characters more real, at least to me.
As for your question about party stability, I have given a little bit of thought to it, yes. There will probably be a little less stability than in most of my past playthroughs, where I tended to plan a team ahead of time and then not deviate at all, because here each character will have his/her own personality and hence his/her own reasons for wanting to stay in or leave the party. I also want to be cautious about planning too far ahead, because there is always the chance some "non-essential" party member will get chunked (see my play guidelines on page 1 of this thread for more info on this). If I keep running up to threats like Tarnesh without any tactics, then that's bound to happen sooner rather than later haha...Anyway, the short answer: I am hoping there will be a "core" 4 or 5 (with 1 - 2 rotating as helpful/required), but it may not be the core you (or I) expect.
