The last couple of stats posted at least seem realistic. Might try the saving my highest roll, recall and re-roll. You are probably right that there is nothing special about this method but,,, you never know. Thanks for the replies guys.

By far the best character needs TSC installed: Human Fighter/ Druid Dual Class
Start as a human fighter with:
18/97 Str.
18 dex.
15 const.
3 intell.
18 wisdom
16 charisma
Go to sixth level to get both extra weapon proficienicys in Large Sword (for Scimitars)
Dual to druid after getting Charisma tome.
Let the rest of the party "carry" you to a level 7 Druid. Now you are indestructible, you could ditch your whole party and go solo through all but the expansion parts (where you need to detect and remove traps). You can kill anything with your scimitar skill, and you can wear the best metal armor, with the Guard ring, and the Sune ring, and wield serious power with the eventual 21 wisdom, cast 5th level priest spells, and use Call Lightning. Put on the Displacement cloak, Balduran's Helm and end up with 19 str., 19 dex, 16 const., 4 intell, 21 wisdom, 17 charisma.
Also, with a scimitar and sling, fighter druids can carry all sheilds, no restrictions, so get the +1, +4 missile Large Sheild, and you are set.

This is probably missing the point of RPG and challenge, but for some good old fashioned butt-kicking it is hard to beat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, it's very easy to beat. Kensai/Mage with 18/18/18/18/10/18. 100 points, not that rare.

You're right, it's horrible for roleplaying. How could you be so strong, wise, dextrous etc. and be such an idiot at the same time?

Let's see :
Me fight with big shiny sword. Me no slow with sword. Me crush you, crush you to go!

Let's see, fights with the sword (strong), not slow (dexterous), and knows to kill (that sounds pretty wise to me [img]tongue.gif[/img] ). It's got the ogre talk, so it makes a perfect idiot .

And also, ever notice how lots of spell casters in the game are intellegent, but not wise, which could be quite typical of an 'ambitious spellcaster.' Do you expect to see a wise AND intelligent spell caster all the time?... Of course not

Akira Rasthemeson

Dwarf Cleric lvl 7
(before tomes)
str 18
des 17
con 19
int 13
wis 18
chr 14

he was my first PnP character (his con is significantly higher now than it was when I rp'ed him) and I took him from a 0-lvl commoner to saint-hood(effectively made him a demigawd, or a proxy for planescape players).

Don't care about Charisma, you have to buy things that are more expensive, e.g. with 17-18 charisma, you can knock off a third of the price, not to mention if you have high rep which knocks off more (50%) you can see one of the benefits of being a paladin
