You can use your own party, you have to create a multiplayer game to do it though. (which can be locked out using a password) I am not sure how the story plays out without using some key NPC's on your team, but you can.

I wish they would enhance and re-release the Icewind Dale games to be honest. You always created your own party in IWD.

Thank you for the quick response.
ich will try it. if it does not work without key NPC´s i can still play it the normal way.

The best thing to do is start a game with maybe three custom characters, the only "key" character would be the girl you start out with once you leave town. (It's been ages since I played this, I don't remember her name)

Edit: Playing it again, Imoen was her name.

Also, he may not be key to the story, but the mentally handicapped ranger with the space hamster "Boo" is a must have NPC.

Edit: Minsc was his name. Thanks Hazz, I could not remember that one either.

"Go for the eyes Boo!"

you're right "Boo" is a must have.

You can start a multiplayer game and create your characters, then save the game. You can move the multiplayer save game into the single player folder. I do this because the pause in multiplayer takes 1 second to unpause, and that's annoying when you have several auto-pause conditions.

Minsc is a must have, his Minature Giant Space Hamster named Boo is forced to come with you.

Daemoc, I agree, I always enjoyed being able to start IWD with a well balanced group. But I suppose the story called for the approach. I hope to see IWD I and II re-released as well.

Is there a save editor or something you can use to change the class and specializations of NPCs you have in your party? I really like a lot of the charachters but I'd like to make them something that actually makes sense. Imoen = mage, Jahera = pure druid, etc.

You can use EEKeeper. Somewhere further into the thread, someone tells how to set your companions to the new kits if you want to change them to it.
