I´m planning to play with a LOTR-party.
I though about including the following:
Frodo - Lightfood Halfling - Rogue
Gimli - Shield Dwarf - Fighter
I´m not quite sure about these:
Legolas - Wild Elf - Archer
Make him a fighter? Hmm, think I NEED a healer. Probably make him a druid. Could get some Fighter levels for the archer-feats (he will use a bow, no matter what...)
Boromir - Human - Fighter? Could make him an Aasimar Pally?
Never played one in IWD2
Gandalf - Human - Wiz oder Sorc?? If Sorc, I could make him Aasimar as well, for the Cha-Bonus.
Aragorn - Human - Ranger
Well, maybe switch race to Tiefling?
It´s obvious, you have to compromise between authenticity and playability. I mean, you could go with Gimli, Legolas and Boromir all being fighters, but that would be too boring.
Maybe I make Boromir a Paladin of Ilmater to add in some Cleric levels later on. Maybe this is a very bad idea at all, because you can never raise stats high enough as such heroes deserve
What do you think?
