Oh well... the only time Iīve finished:

Human Ranger lvl 7 (Chaotic Good)
canīt remember profencies, but apparently bows and large swords
STR: 13 (reason why he was never exported)
DEX: 18
CON: 16
INT: 9
WIS: 12
CHA: 12

I only rerolled a couple of times, thatīs why the stats.

My first computer RPG character ever.

Jentl, a human mage. Not specialized.

I think I got to around level 10-12. I'm not sure if I had a full party. Probably I didn't.

All I know that he had maxed out int but he was weak in all others. I didn't even know that rerolling-thingy then [img]smile.gif[/img]

It was hard as hell in the beginning. One spell casted and you had to sleep already.

But the character that you make when you know nothing about the game or what are good stats, are the best. He was pretty crappy but the game was challenging and I loved it. The game and the char [img]smile.gif[/img]

The same thing with Fallout 1. I'm a huge Fallout fan. You can ask almost anything from me [img]smile.gif[/img] But the first game and the character. I only remember that he had 10 luck so I got the alien weapon. But it's the same thing in BG and Fallout. When you play them again, you know how to put your stats and you end up making min-max character. Ofcourse it's you who puts the stats but I just get so annoyed with a "crappy" char, because I know how much easier some fight would have been if I would have taken the 18 str.

I noticed that fighter would be way better than a mage later on. It's been a year or so when I tested a fighter a bit. I remember making a dwarf fighter and I killed all the guards from Candlekeep with it. Tell me how's that possible? [img]smile.gif[/img]

Dace De'Briago 02-21-2003 12:28 PM

Name: Dace De'Briago (didn't see that one coming)
Class: Fighter
Level: 7
HP: 105

Strength: 19
Dexterity: 19
Constitution: 19
Wisdom: 21
Intelligence: 19
Charisma: 7

This character will be made a Kensai when I finally get him into SoA (grand mastery in Katanas, Celestial Fury +5/Acid Katana +4).

Charisma will be modified to 25 via a bug [img]smile.gif[/img]

This character is probably about the best you can legitimately get [img]smile.gif[/img] Oh, and yes, he will be dualled to either a mage (99% chance) or a thief (yeah yeah...)

Hope you are are drooling over the thought of this character. Perfection requires minimum 93 in stat points [img]tongue.gif[/img]

(18*5 = 90, 3 for Charisma).

Oh, and I am a true powergamer, so this character is TRUE NEUTRAL. hehehe.

Hmm in BG1 I always prefered mage characters, mostly due to the fact that I didn't really like the NPC mages all too much. Edwin was the only really powerful one, and I couldn't stand to have a Minsc-hater in my group ;) But building a mage from scratch was really enjoyable as you start the game weak as a kitten and grow to a fairly accomplished wizard by the end.

Oh and you guys have some crazy stats on your Paly's and Fighters. That's just ridiculous [img]tongue.gif[/img]

It's hard to pick a favourite but this one scores high for interest and originallity:

Name: Almost Snow White
Level 7
Race / Class Half-Elf / Bard

Strength 10
Dexterity 15
Constitution 12
Intellegence 15
Wisdom 8
Charisma 15

Weapon Skills n/a
Time with party 63 days
No. of Kills 0
XP gained 0
Special Ability Getting small people to do her evil deeds
BardSong Continuous loop of
Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho
Whistle while you work
Everybody want to rule the world
This is the road to Hell

Ps. It's not hard do guess who's in the party
PPs Can somebody explain to me why people need high stats in BG1(except for newbies). I figure that high stats means you're lucky at rolling dice but want an easy game, low stats means you role-play for smarter tactics. You choose.

My *favorite* was a solo Gnome Illusionist, Gnome Alone. Stats were nothing remarkable; I simply drained CHA and WIS to boost other stats to their limits. He sure was a lot of fun though.

Presently, I'm occupied with a fun little Halfling Fighter, Lepre Con (Green tunic, paleskin, red hair); Lawful Evil, clvl 7.

STR 11 (No fullplates here. Not even chain, really.)
DEX 18
CON 16 (Starting CON: 15)
INT 13
WIS 14
CHA 14

I rolled until I got a group of stats that looked satisfactory, then arranged them to taste. I usually find this rolling strategy gets more interesting results than simply raising everything to 18, and it permits some freedom in padding the stats I want nice and bulky (in this case, Dex/Con).

Missile Weapons ++++ (Read: Darts!)
Small Sword: ++ (Primarily for Dagger of Venom)

Darts are his primary method of dealing death, though he also keeps a Sling with Bullets +1 handy for things immune to normal darts. (Easier keeping Bullets +1 on-hand than it is Darts +1.) He can manage about 40 damage per round: 9-12 dmg/dart, 4 ApR.
