NPCS you would like to see...
I am not overly fond of the choices made on the 3 (now 4) new NPCs. I figured I should say somethign since maybe it will affect BG2's dev't. Or, they would be added now to BG E. What NPCS WOULD you have preferred to see added with their own content?

I do feel that most of the more powerful NPCS in the game are evil (dorn, edwin, viconia, etc.).

Personally, I'm not looking for E Alignments so the sorcerer and half orc aren't useful to me. The monk just dens't have good stats and as a weak class when low level who isn't equiptment dependant, higher stats would have been better. And Neera is just too...random...to be included in the party for long.

I would have liked a N or G Priest that is better than Bronwen--there is a lot of room to add other gods, so it's certainy possible. Either one who is a stronger fighter due to their god and their stats or, assuming priests of the god of thieves don't have to evil, that is possible, especially since the game can be light on theives. N might work since I hear the E parties are even lighter on thieves.

Another option would be adding a race from a different ADND campaign worlds, ether through a Spelljammer type ship landing (and departure (he missed the ship leaving) , or crash). I seem to remeber multi-armed bugs from Red Sun, but I am sure there are other options. I also remember dinosaur like characters from Azure Bonds, but I don't remember what their stats or abilities are like.

Or a race that if typically a monster but this character is G or N (other than drow or Duerger). Or part monster. Half dryad or fearie of some sort? There are also cambions if need be.

Actually I never took any other chars because they would be powerful. Only to experience their story. If you want a powerful group you can go ahead and start in Multiplayer.

However it really would've been nice to have more possible partymembers that cannot be created (Like Drow for instance) .
It always was that way, that most Storycharacters are utterly useless because of really screwed up stats.

You are better off writing about this kind of thing on forum.baldursgate.com. Beamdog then at least more likely to read it and do something with it (probably not).

Personally I like the new NPC's and I feel like any bias towards evil characters is largely made up for in BG2 since even with new additions there will still be very few of them (with Dorn there would be only 4 evil NPC's in SoA and 5 if you include ToB (which as a campaign is pretty short). Plus with two of them you lose reputation for adding them into your party. I've heard they will be including a new thief in BG2EE (I would guess a shadowdancer given it is a new kit) but I haven't heard any other details like alignment.
