Nooooooo, don't let him retire. The Realms need strong heroes! :)
Barbarian/Shaman fits together nicely even from a role-playing aspect. It's sad to find that some excellent class-combos are illegal. I've always wanted to play a Sorcerer/Paladin combo (which is legitimate in 3E).
The ability to multi-class freely (with a few Faction related restrictions) is one of the aspects I really like about 3E games like IWD2 and NWN. :D
I'll be re-using the same name, backstory, and motivaitons. So, in a way, this charname isn't really done yet. I just need to find a class that I can get engaged with. Barbarian/Shaman would have been great, but my EEKeeper kludge just felt too janky.
Heh, I'm hearin ya TBell. If it doesn't feel quite right it, I end up starting over. As a good deal of the humanoid races have F/Sh as a multi-class in 2nd editions Complete Humanoids Book", H/O's included (they can even be a Sh/T), it would be a nice option for the standard game.
Barb/Sh is a great combo thematically. I just jury-rigged a fighter/druid multiclass dwarf where I added shaman spells manually into his spellbook in EEkeeper. I like to multiclass into dual as well and for that EEkeeper works better than any mods though, so you start as MC and level up to your liking, then when you reach a certain point, you go into EEkeeper and stop one of the classes from leveling more by changing to dualclassed. It's never perfect though, no matter how much I try to fix things in EEkeeper and it also removes some immersion to have to alt-tab and go into keeper, change things, save and reload in-game every time you level. So usually I end up not completing these kind of runs.
I wish I was a master at creating kits myself so that I could create one that fits my style perfectly.
We aren't entirely sure. For some reason, his body's digestion process slowed down down so much, that backed up and he kept throwing up everything he ate or drank. The doctors never figured out what was causing it. Everything looked completely normal, but his body just refused to work right. Almost four months later, its finally normalizing. My son has a significant disability that affects every part of him, so random things going horribly wrong is kinda par for the course.
Been there, done that! Created a druid for the first time in ages recently, and now I keep dreaming about strolling in the woods and just lying around in tall grass, hah! It's cool and scary at the same time how affected one become from a game.
And yeah, stop stalling and just play a new game ;P
