@UnrelatedComa: If you search the old Baldur's Gate sites (Gibberlings 3 etc.) you can find mods that add certain characters back in as fully playable characters. Off-hand I can think of Kivan Skie
individually. There is also BG1 NPCs for SoA
which adds most of them back in as companions.
awesome! thanks a ton, I cant wait to bring the classics to SoA.
