Not classical at least, but could be an interesting character. For example, Tenebrous wrote a very good story about a paladin who was multiclass rogue.
Yeah, I've been reading ATG, and saw the backstab (and the grandmasteries!) on the char sheet he posted a looong time ago. Not sure if he's used it yet.
But Ajantis and throwing daggers. No.
It shows...I'm playing a game right now where I have both Keldorn and Viconia. That little uncertainty on whether he'll suddenly decide to cut her head off really adds a certain something.
Is it random, or does it always happen?
Well, there are two 'warning' dialogues first, and I've triggered those with Ctrl-I. After that, it seems that if I use Ctrl-I it always happens, but it has only happened once without it. So yes, I think it's random, and that the high Char of my paladin is keeping it from happening naturally. I almost always have high Char, since I like having mixed alignment parties and don't want my NPC:s killing each other.
Wand of Fireball. You'll hardly need anything else, except for Haste and some Magic Missiles.
Oooh yeah. Even with Dynaheir, I did most of her spellcasting from wands. All the best L4-5 spells are enchantment, summoning *grumble*
That's why Eddie is supreme. Well actually, it's also a matter of him being the cutest.
Yeah..once you've been through the game once, you don't need to ID most stuff. And that's the only important divination spell in BG1, so he has de facto the best specialization. And normally I prefer DEX to CON, but for mages, those HP are so precious. For my current Evil party, Kagain gets the DEX gauntlets, Ed stays the hells away from anything unless casting anyway (gotta love his 20+ ranged THAC0 before L6...), and Jade, Monty, Shar-Teel, and Viconia have DEX 17+.
Then there's his amulet, but with the metaspell amulet and the rings of wizardry that gets others up to 12 L1 slots anyway, it matters not so much...but still, it's a plus.
