Just felt like I had to respond to VonDondu's eloquent, if misguided, post. Spoilers follow . . . . . . . . The problem with your reasoning, V., is that most of the "evil" quests you quote have nothing to do with Aran Linvail. It is MaeVar who is torturing someone, and asks you to steal an artifact ...

Pleased to hear I am not alone in my illness... I finally sucked it up on my 5th try and finished. Here's my take: first, play your way out Irenicus's Dungeon and save the moment you hit Waukeen's Promenade. Put that save game in a very special place. Then think about a style/ party makeup you'd lik...

While there is little questioning the assertions that the evil characters are "best in class" across the board, for roleplaying purposes, especially playing a paladin, there are more logical choices for your party: Mazzy or Keldorn as a second fighter class (or Minsc, if you'd miss him too much) Aer...
