I want a party that consists of BG2 NPCs.

How would you create such a party?
Which are your 6 favorite BG2 NPCs?

Haer Dalis - Bard/fighter (even levels) tiefling
Valygar - Ranger/rogue Human
Anomen - Cleric x/Fighter 4 Human
Jan - Illusionist x/thief1 Gnome
Aerie - Mage or Sorceror (no cleric because two gasters gimp) some Elf
Right Speech has four aspects: 1. Not lying, but speaking the truth, 2. Avoiding rude and coarse words, but using gentle speech beneficial to the listener, 3. Not slandering, but promoting friendliness and unity, 4. Avoiding frivolous speech, but saying only what is appropriate and beneficial.

My Favorites:
Jaheira: Female Half Elf Fighter 2/Ranger 1/Barbarian 1 /Druid 26. Neutral Good
Viconia: Female Drow Cleric 28 / Monk 1 / Rouge 1. Lawful Evil.
Jan: Male Rock Gnome Rogue 9 / Illusionist 21. Neutral
Korgan: Male Shield Dwarf Fighter 4 / Barbarian 26. Neutral Evil
Anomen: Male Human Fighter 4 / Paladin Of Ilmater 3 / Cleric Of Ilmater 23: Lawful Good
Keldorn: Male Human Fighter 4 / Paladin Of Helm 26. Lawful Good
Haeredalis: Male Thiefling Rogue 3-4 / Bard 26-27. Chaotic Neutral
Aerie: Female Elf Cleric 13/Wizard 17 OR Wizard 13/Cleric 17 (depend on how you use her in BG2). Neutral Good
Protagonist (You) Sorceror + 5 of the Above

AERIE extra: As lvl 9 spells for Cleric is a total Waste, and she is rather weak in BG2 physically i think she will be most similar as C13/W17

JAN extra: I often end up with him as main Thief (Skills + Backstab x5) unless i play a thief role myself, so therefore Rogue 9 (+5d6 Sneak Attack & plenty Skillpoints) / Wiz 21 ( he gets the power rather late in BG2 due to Multi-Classing)

KORGAN extra: As i recall he is Lawful Evil in BG2, and in IWD2 he cannot then be a Barbarian. But i always play him as one as he has the Berserker Kit, and in BG2 i like him because of hie "evilness" and his Rather intimidating interaction with everyone else. Or was he Chaotic Evil in Bg2 ? The important thing is for him to go bananas in Battles.
:mad: Oh, When all else fail, put the Dwarf up front!
