List of NPC Party Members in Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition

Updated on April 14, 2016
Source

Introduction

In 1998 Interplay published a role-played game set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe called "Baldur's Gate". It went on to become one of the most popular non-MMO (massively-multiplayer) RPGs of all time, and spawned a sequel and three related titles (Icewind Dale, Icewind Dale 2, and Planescape: Torment), which would all be considered classics in their own rights. In 2012 developer Beamdog is set to release an authorized "Enhanced Edition" of the original Baldur's Gate over the internet for the PC, Mac and iPad. The game was upgraded to include updated Dungeons & Dragons rules, new characters and improved graphics.

More information about Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition can be found at its official website.

I've compiled a list of all the characters who can join your six man (or woman) team of adventurers who set off to save the world. The list includes basic information like class and alignment, as well as starting statistics and (in some cases) notes about the character.

Note: Until the game is released a lot of this information is speculative. The information is based, for now, on the original release of Baldur's Gate. As the game is released and new information revealed I will update the list to more accurately reflect the Enhanced Edition changes.

    I mentioned Boo in Minsc's note. I could have written pages on Boo, but I figured that wasn't what most people came for.

    Cummings is an amazing voice actor and even trying to list some of his roles would have filled up a couple of screens for sure, so I decided it best to just leave him as "legendary". But now I will always think of Minsc as Tigger, too. Kinda scary, really.

    Minsc and BOO! You forgot BOO!

    p.s. I can't wait! I bought and played the original games as a kid and they are still some of my favorite games.... RPG as it was meant to be!

    p.p.s. If you didn't know, Jim Cummings is one of the most famous voice actors around these days, though most of his fame comes from voicing....are you ready? Winnie the Pooh! And Tigger, too! Every time I hear Minsc yell about how he's going to destroy enemies, I can't help but laugh knowing that the same guy voices tons of kid show characters
