Well, that question is really like this one:"how long is a piece of string?" Basically, it depends what you have done. I am presuming you have basically just done the quests and gone on to Baldurs Gate? That of course is fine, some others (like me) prefer to do it another way. I will usually explore every area on the map, mostly before I go to Baldur's Gate. In my latest solo Barbarian run this is exactly what I have done, it does help in some quests in the city though, as you will need to be higher level. But on the same token level 4 is perfectly acceptable, and you will easily gain levels.

I played a Ranger who dual classed at 2nd level into Cleric.

I found it very powerful to have access to all cleric and druid spells, as well as be able to get ** in any blunt weapon.

I was only about 2000 xp (or however much it is to reach Ranger 2) behind a straight cleric, with many benefits (see above) plus the racial enemy.

I don't have the savegame anymore, but that was a lot of fun.

PICK MEEE!

Yuh.

Garrett the human thief. ((Yes, yes, I am a huge honking THIEF: THE DARK PROJECT fan)).

I have used this character from BG1 straight through Throne and have also used him in the two Icewind Dales. Thief has always been my favorite class.

Sadly I don't have his stats at hand.

Very interesting Kestrel. How did you implement him into the Baldur's Gate game?

After playing through all of the Baldur's Gate Saga, I chose the mortal path and so I just carried on from there, deciding to RP that all he has done thereafter, from Icewind Dale to Neverwinter Nights, to Icewind Dale II is just continueing his adventures throughout Faerūn. I just slotted the PnP in between Icewind Dale and Neverwinter Nights.

Cool. I was just curious as to whether you'd go Bard or Ranger. How did the Bard class work out for you? Who was in your party?

I was quite impressed with the Bard class actually, as I had heard many negative things said about the class. I have always had a fondness for Bards though however, so I decided to go that route (which I could obviously make a Bard/Ranger in NWN).

Overall though I enjoyed the Bard class, and found the stronghold quest quite enjoyable (if not alittle drawn out). I was alittle miffed at seeing Haer'dalis for the first time though went I playing through as Kestrel. I had no idea of Haer'dalis' character before making Kestrel and I saw many similarities (curse you Black Isle ).

Many party consisted of:

Kestrel Daystar - Kiefling - Bard
Jaheira - Elf - Druid/Fighter (romance)
Aerie - Elf - Mage/Cleric
Mazzy - Halfling - Fighter (which I later SK to paladin)
Haer'dalis - Tiefling - Bard
Jan Jansen - Gnome - Illusionist/Thief

I found it fairly interesting with those character and it wasn't too difficult either. Overall I had a good time playing through, and now am playing through again with added mods (which, I didnt have the first time I ever played BGII with Kestrel) and now have Keto in my troupe.
