Accurate Multi/Dual Class Rules

WarChiefZekeWarChiefZeke Member Posts: 1,469
IE engine's Multi and Dual classing rules have always been unnecessarily restrictive. PnP allows for some options not allowed in game such as druid/mages, druid/rangers, and triple dual classes.

Could we ever maybe see this changed?

    im going to go with no...... because i want to say its hard coded that way....? i use the ellipsis because im not 100 % sure, but i wouldn't bet money on seeing this changed

    plus from what i can recall way way back in the day, this was a deliberate choice from the original devs of BG 1, because they were more concerned with game balance than strict PnP rules

    hence the reason why there are things that are different between the BG series and PnP rules

    Mods can do a lot these days. I've put a lot of work into creating heretofore-unavailable classes. Tome & Blood has multiclass sorcerers, and Faiths & Powers has Druid/Ranger, Druid/Thief, and Druid/Mage. Might & Guile has Ranger/Thief and Ranger/Mage kits, though they are rougher approximations than the other ones. Now I'm working on a Barbarian/Shaman multiclass...

    If they did restore druid/mage and such, they'd probably have to restore the other PnP restrictions, such as non-humans having level caps. iirc, only humans could level indefinitely in 2ed.

    Druid/Mage was really what I was looking for so thanks @subtledoctor for pointing me to that!
