Seems like a fun discussion. So...how many full saga runs have you completed? I'll go first.
(1) Durak - dwarven defender
This was before my ill fated solo attempt. Runehammer in one hand, defender of easthaven in the other and the Roranarch's Horn atop his head, he was a tank like no other. He walked up and got the enemy's attention, and then Korgan (axe of the unyielding and crom faeyr) flanked. It worked quite well.
I envisioned him attaining godhood and becoming a (very) minor dwarven deity, with the portfolio of being a god for dwarves raised by non-dwarves who still try to stick to their heritage.
(2) Kadrin - dwarven fighter/thief
Carsomyr when fighting, Yamato for backstabbing, wearing white dragon scale armor and has the headband of the devout on his head. Backstabbing with a guaranteed max damage at 25 strength? Followed up by 10 whirlwind attacks with Carsomyr? He was a whirlwind of destruction. And the traps...oh the traps.
I envisioned him retiring to the Deepstone Clanhold where he would spend the rest of his days, protecting it from any future attack. And experimenting with the unique ore found there to make truly deadly traps for any unwanted guests.
(3) Lother - Human Fighter/Shadowdancer
Dual classed him at lvl 13 so he would have max backstabbery. Belm in his offhand, spectral brand in his main. Quite a force to be reckoned with.
I envisioned him taking godhood and changing his name to Bhaal, becoming what his father once was.
(4) Aethandir- Elven Fighter/Mage
Not my favorite run, too much micro managing. But a surprisingly good tank. Even though there were better options out there, he kept Aslyferund, the best elven chain in the world, because it just looked that damned good. A weird bug meant that I couldn't actually get out of the pocket plane after beating the last trial, but because there was nothing I could do about it I still count the run complete.
I envisioned him returning to Suldanessar after the saga.
(5) Brynhild - Human Inquisitor
Damn those stats. I mean...damn. S20 D18 C20 I14 W18 Cha21. That was some good rolling. Purifier in one hand, Hindo's Doom in the other (for the magic resistance), she did fairly well for herself. Kinda redundant to have her and Keldorn, but this was the holy warrior run.
She ran away with Anomen as per their epilogue.
(6) Weilan - Human Monk
More crazy stats. When a monk has S25, hits for max damage (ie: 43 damage per hit) and has 10 attacks per round? Combine that with -16 THACO and -19AC, and you have something completely broken. Combine that with 100% magic resistance and enemies just cry. Then again, beating BG1 with a monk charname and with Raasad in the same party...that was so damned painful. So I feel like I earned that power spike at the end.
She took godhood, for one reason only: She feared getting old and withering away. A strange thought that hit me when making that final choice, but I ran with it.
So 6 completed saga runs thus far. I've got a ranger/cleric currently in the underdark who might well join their number eventually, and I'm toying with a fighter/druid run which has just started in BG1.
And this isn't counting how I beat the saga twice in my youth, before EE. Once as a paladin and another with a dwarven berserker.
Anyone else want to share how obsessed they are with this game?
