This was my first attempt at an ARR/Playthrough focused on Role-Playing a character, rather than my usual power-gaming self.
I only set *2 rules for myself:
- Try to actually RP, and not to break character in order to gain "stuff".
- Perma-death, for both me and my party members.
Alto, even this I might be tempted to cheat and RP someone losing an eye or an arm.
Depending on my mood. And I am moody.
*quick addition tot he rules - Try to sneak in as many splleing mitsakes as I cna!
I ended up only loading once, due to what I considered a very cheesy death to Nimbul the Ubberbard.

I should start boring you with the background of the character I chose to play by now... but Its a fairly simple one.
A multiclass Elf (Fighter/Mage/Thief), who is as full of himself as he is young by elven years.
I have not decided on the actual age, because "God is in the Details" and I am a militant atheist.
So 1-0 to me.
He learned magic form Gurion, how to steal from Imoen, and how to fight from jealous kids who tried to beat on a skinny elf.
As for the 5 paragraphs about his personality... I will spare you.
Armed with my illusions that my writing ability will convey it during the playthrough.
I decided to add a new section, to show the "progress" of the recruitable characters in this playthrough:
Ajantis - Died Heroically in the parties last stand!
Alora - Unmet
Branwen - Still a Statue.
Coran - Unmet
Dorn - Killed by Hairtooth the Bridge Ogre.
Dynaheir - Killed for Edwin.
Edwin - Electrocuted by Osmadi the Druid.
Eldoth - Got away form the parties last stand using a potion of invisibility.
Faldorn - Unmet
Garrick - Spat on and Services Refused.
Imoen - At the gates of Candelkeep, begging entrance.
Isra - Unmet
Jaheira - Killed by Nar-El & Mantoran.
Kagain - Killed by Bassilius's Air Servant.
Khalid - Killed by three Flaming Fists mercenaries.
Kivan - Died Heroically in the parties last stand!
Minsc - Killed by the Party.
Montaron - Killed by Silke.
Neera - Killed by the Red Wizards.
Quayle - Killed by bandits while trying to rest.
Rasaad - Killed by Zordel.
Safana - Unmet
Shar-Teel - Killed by Mulahey's minions.
Skie - Unmet
Tiax - Probably got away form the "last stance" and still rules all!
Valerie - Face eaten off by Zordels summoned dog.
Viconia - Unmet
Xan - Killed by Tanzig.
Xzar - Forcibly hospitalized in the temple of Helm in Neshkal.
Yeslick - Unmet
Any suggestions for another character I should try and make another of these?
If so please post.
