What kind of parties will you create?

1 week ago (edited)

I'm sure at least some of us are already brainstorming ideas for characters we'd like to play and imagining how they'll interact with each other. So far I have two party concepts: Number 01 consists of a human paladin of Tirmar with either the Lawkeeper, Academic or Philosopher background, a aristocratic high elf shock arcanist wizard, a half- elf (half- sylvan elf if possible) lowlife rogue and sellsword hill dwarf battle domain cleric. Once both half-orcs and dragonborn become playable I'll make a second party with a half-orc paladin of the homeland, a marsh halfling shadow tamer ranger, a dragonborn sorcerer (child of the rift or mana painter, I haven't decided yet) and a snow dwarf elemental domain cleric. I'm still unsure about the backgrounds for this second group but I'm failrly sure they'll get along more than the other group.

I imagine the first party will have a rocky start due to their differences but will still make an effective team while the second group will have an easier time getting along but will largely be "widler" than the other group, with different goals and alignments. The second group's sorcerer was originally intended to be a sylvan elf but I decided to make them a dragonborn instead because I like them and to increase the contrast between the two groups.I personally hope that the game will receive even more new backgrounds and personality options to make different playthroughs feel even more different.

What kind of groups are you going to make and why? Please feel free to go into as much detail as you want ^^

I like your second group : just my personal preference because they seem more gritty and outcast.  A "marsh halfling shadow tamer ranger" is hard to beat. :P

I have not decided much of course, but it will certainly have a Snow Dwarf for sure (big fan of Dwarves and the Snow Dwarf reminds me of Sagani [tribal Boreal Dwarf] in Pillars of Eternity 1).

I'm glad you approve ^^ The only downside of this combination will be that the halfling will always be at a disadvantage when using the longbow unless the game comes with the option of giving him a shortbow instead or if the rules for small creatures work different in Solasta (doubtful) but I'll probably be able to get a shortbow or light crossbow sooner or later.And while I could switch classes between some of the characters I like the mental image of the group as it is.
