 I don't think my first vote will come as much of surprise to anybody ... Mazzy.  :wub

 Second Nalia, purely on the basis that I feel sorry for her.

All of the fine women are equal, save Vicky(1 behind) and Nalia(sitting at a little 2). Very interesting.

Not so strange. The only 2 I like are Mazzy and Immy.

And Immy takes the lead!

Is there a Favorite Male NPC thread?

JAHEIRA?!?!?

In order I would have to say:
Jaheira
Imoen
Aerie(Close third)
(Now here it splits)
Mazzy (Personality) or Nalia(class)
Nalia (personality) or Mazzy(class)
Viconia

Well Vicky's class is all well and good, but she's is not as great as the others. Maybe Nalia. But Nalia pulls ahead by being good and tolerable as well as good class. Vicky only has the class going for her. Mazzy only has the personality(but I suppose Halfling is good too)

Viconia can be a mean bitch at times, but I like her for it. She is drow after all. One that is trying to reform herself.

I dislike Jaheira intensely. No offense intended to those that like her, and I like her voice, but she just rubs me the wrong way. No accounting for taste.

Maybe it's because I'm female, but I tend to be harder on the female NPCs than I am on the male NPCs. I accept less stereotyping. Or maybe it's just that I'm unfair. Always possible, I suppose. In any case, it seems like the female NPCs didn't get anything to offset their weaknesses the way the male NPCs did. Anomen is a prat, but he's gallant and chivalric. Valygar is... well, Valygar, but he does it well. Cernd babbles, but he gets a good line in every once in a while. I simply adore Keldorn, and if he wasn't a bigot, he'd be my utter favorite. Yoshimo has a sense of humor, and so does Jan. Korgan just cracks me up sometimes, and his banters with Mazzy are kinda sweet. In my admitedly biased opinion, the ladies could have done with a bit more character development.

If you think Jahs is bad, you should read Athans's Baldur's Gate book. After that, you are going to love Jahs in BG game. In that book she's the constant damsel in distress, she manages to get herself in all kind of troubles, from bandits to spiders and the main hero have to come to the rescue. ;D

Surrender or be squished!

What is it with Dwarves and that poor Halfling. *Gets a mental image of a Dwarven Patrick* I didn't want to see that.

 A Mazzy romance has been in the pipeline for a while at SHS.  I haven't been there recently, does anyone one know if the project is still being worked upon?
