I honestly thought I responded to this already.. oh well.

Xan (even unmodded, his soundset would make me giggle. maybe it's just me. plus i have a tendency to have a happy negative outlook, "Well, look at it this way, it could always be worse!")

Minsc (Soundset was SO GREAT)

Garrick ("Once more unto the breach, dear friends!" was a great line)

I didn't have Kivan or Coran or the rest in the group much at all back when I played BG1 without mods, so I'm not so sure how they'd be sans BG1 Project.  :lilly

Old poll.
New member thanks you for bringing it into attention again  :)

My favourites:

Coran: he was the first one I ever romanced (with a Cleric/Ranger heroine), and though the romance didn't last, he's such a useful addition to the party: not only is he a wonderful archer, he handled the traps and dangers in Durlag's Tower wonderfully well, you needn't have a full-class Thief for that, Coran can do the trick just as well. (and with Immy dualed quite lately into a mage, it was fun to do the scouting for traps doubly as quick, each taking a corridor  :D).

Xan: I'm totally in love with his depressive moods, even though his kit is not too useful (I never play him as only mage, but he's great combined with magic missile and fireball-slinging bard or fighter-mage).

Quayle: he's very funny, his comments to others make me smile instead of irritating me and he's the best support caster you can get, a great preview to Aerie, his pupil in BG2. It's a pity you can't get him to join you in BG2 anymore. We had so many good times in the swordcoast, why do you stay inside that circus now?

Coran.. Typical throwback 80's playboy in elf form. Gotta love that

Tiax.. What can I say? His insanity is an infectious plague, but damn is it catchy.

Shar-Teel.. Her unmodded portrait is, meh, but Plasmocrat's edit and other have really brought her to life for me and who doesn't like a hot girl with a sword?

Not much love for Kagain and Eldoth.

Kagain was cool, but personally I never thought his voice matched with his portrait. Never cared for Eldoth though and thought he should have been one of the NPCs that died in a cameo in the sequel instead of Xzar, Coran, Tiax and Safana who I like better.

I've used them all at one time or another but I generally stick with the standard of Minsc, Jaheira, Khalid, Imoen and Dynaheir in my party. I'll use the others if I happened to lose of the others.

To only choose 3?! thats Impossible!

On my first BG playthrough, i unknownly gathered the "canon" party and when i played BG2 i thought the Irenicus Dungeon NPCs depended on who you bought along at the end of the first game.

Well... out of Minsc, Dynaheir, Khalid, Jaheira and Imoen i will pick Minsc (really, who wouldnt?), Imoen & Jaheira (only because shes developed further in BG2, otherwise, i would have choosen Dynaheir).
