Haeravon does a great job in his FAQ of analyzing what makes an optimized HOF party for IWD, but his treatment of the other classes (whether dual, multi-, single, or kits) tends to put them into broad "optimal" or "not" categories (heavily implying that the "nots" are only worthy of casual runs of the main game). I understand that a Bard is not as good as a Fighter/Mage, and a Fighter/Mage has less potential than a Fighter/Mage/Cleric...but is either the Bard or Fighter/Mage *good enough* for a HOF run?
Sure, six triple-multiclassers might make HOF as easy as possible, but I am also interested in whether or not certain dual or regular multiclassers could reasonably make it through...or if a party of single class/kit characters at (or close to) level cap could survive without too much trouble.
