I'm not quite sure what you meant but I guess you wanted to know with whom I was when the game ended. So here goes
Myself (a female invoker)
Anomen
Keldorn
Minsc
Nalia
Aerie
I hope that's what you wanted to know. I liked them all except Nalia who was with me only out of necessity...

Elf Fighter/Mage
Minsc
Jaheira
Aerie
Nalia/Jan/Imoen
Anomen

contrary to many opinions, I found Anomen to be a powerhouse by ch 4-5, and Jaheira wound up taking my place as Lead Attacker with AC -9 and Belm + a club. I've got several new games going, experiemnting with Soloing and different NPC configs. My fave so far is:

Totemic Druid
Jaheira
Minsc
Jan
Cernd
Valygar

having only one mage, and him a multi-class has forced me to jettison most of my combat habits. However, I'm not sure the tree-huggin love-fest I've created won't wear thin after a while...

In my opinion this is the best team possible (without evil NPC's)
1.Yourself (beserker)
2.Keldorn
3.Minsc
4.Jaheira
5.Aerie
6.Imoen ( first Yoshimo the traitor)

Anomen sux cause I don't like his arrogant voice. Every time I see his face, I'd like to kill it Image , and besides, he's a crappie fighter ( but a good cleric) Image

I change characters at a regular interval, maybe because I've done their quest or because they're so f***ing annoying (Anomen we me YOU!). But I never, at any point in the game abandoned Aerie (my love interest) or Minsc. Now I haven't completed the game and Edwin and Jaheira are in almost every quest with me, but I don't ever intend on abandoning Aerie or Minsc, they're now to damn good.

I abandoned my first game in chapter 4 since I was getting pounded way too regularly. I played a Blade with Minsc, Jaheira, Viconia, Jan and Valygar. The only one who held her own was Viconia.

Second try, I'm playing an Undead Slayer and took two more custom NPCs: a HE Avenger and a Dw Beserker. Added Aeire and Yoshimo and am cruising through the early going.

Thinking about trading Yoshi for Jan though....

I notice most people are using a full 6-person party. I knocked mine down to 5 and haven't noticed it get any harder - the opposite in fact, since everyone is advancing quicker.

Any opinions on an optinal party size?

I'm in about Chapter 4 or 5 (Brynlaw just before Spellhold) with a two person party (another Kensai/Mage and a dualed Cleric/Thief). Pretty good combo - IMHO.

There are people who have solo'd the game too. Guess it's another one of those personal preference thingys. Image
