Aaand another one of these. :whistling:

For me in the OC, it's a toss-up between Bishop, Khelgar and Sand, but I think I'll go with Sand. In MotB, Gann hands down.

NWN2: Sand. Of all the rather stereotypical characters present, I liked Sand the best. I liked him the moment he walked into Duncan's Inn, and started giving his little smell speech ("I'm glad you're still sober enough to recoginze me, Duncan..."). I suppose I have a weakness for sarcastic, smart-assy characters. Also, his voicing was top-notch.

MotB is somewhat harder. Safiya was nice enough, but because of her rather deep ties to the backstory, she came off as rather bland. Kaelyn was a good idea, but underdeveloped. Okku was better than either, but I think Gann takes the crown here. Great voicing, nice concept, and a good sense of humour to top it all off. Nice :)

I really really haven't ever made it out of the dens you start in, in MotB. :o

And never made it through to the point where I get Grobnar or Cassavir or whoever comes first in NWN2 either. :whistling:

Khelgar for NWN 2, I found his dialog and character really amusing.
One of Many for MOTB, I found the entire character and detail really nicely done, especially when you start to get more personalities.
After an eternity away from you all, I've returned.

I am indecisive. I start a game with one character and about the time I start the quests with the guards or thieves I want to try something else.

It doesn't help that I know I want to play a Wizard, a Cleric, a Druid, a Spirit Shaman, a Warlock, and a Rogue. Possibly a Favored Soul and/or Sorcerer, probably a Dwarven Defender. :(

...ah. Yeah, I know the feeling. ;) Usually it takes me a couple of characters before I actually complete the game.

Grobnar is my favorite. I can't understand why none of the npcs dislike him, maybe I'm missing something?

They all make fun of him (and not in the flattering way), so I get the feeling they don't particularly like him either.

Neeshka :wub: For some reason she just is, I can't reeeeally explain it. ;)
Many of One, would be my prime vote for MotB. :ph34r:

Ack, that happens to me in every Bioware game now, except maybe PS:T. >.<
Of course it gives modders a good incentive for adding in their own characters into the mix, no? To balance out. :)

Interestingly enough, two days after saying that I started it up again. I made it to chapter 2 of MotB. With a character I didn't even like. Now I'm coasting along with 2 someones more pleasing. A sorceress and a Spirit Shaman. Both with their careers and loves planned out.

You may be interested in the Bishop Romance. Domi/Ashara I believe.

Elanee - Some people hate her voice, but I really love it. Plus, I have a thing for druids. :)

Kaelyn the Dove - Again, the voice. Chillingly appropriate, and just generally lovely. I just adore her gentle, determined character.

In NWN2, the NPC I disliked the least was Neeshka. She could have been fun if her character had been allowed to develop a little more. There were hints of something in her past, but we are never given the chance to unravel the mystery. So disappointing....

I've not yet completed MTOB yet, but I rather liked Gann when I met him. I enjoyed his dry wit. I'll try to set aside some time this weekend to finish the game.
