It's time to make a new character, and this time I thought of playing a cleric (something I haven't done before!). From the available kits I would prefer Talos , since Lathander is too "nice" and Helm is too Lawful. I would appreciate your advices on certain aspects , though:
1-I made him chaotic neutral. The game doesn't allow it , but it is actually official that Talassans are either NE, CE or CN , it is lawful evil that should be illegal.
QUESTION: In BG2, will it interfere in my stronghold quest? Should change my aligment before accepting the unseeing eye's quest?
2- From a roleplaying point of view, he was a student of candlekeep who, as in a lovecraftian book, discovered ancient texts about Kozah , and realised that Chaos was a natural force , and faith in it wasn't necessarily evil, even though the faithless might become victims from time to time.
QUESTION: For both BG1 and BG2 , which NPC's do you recommend, I mean, npc's that would actually become his friends? He is wise and adventurous, but I know that characters such as dynaheir and Khalid would be likely to despise him.
3- What about romances? I know that Viconia is a good option , but would you suggest someone else?
