      Hey everyone!


      This is my NWN interpretation of Jan Jansen, the gnomish trader or shady goods, tinkerer, obsessed with turnips and trash collector from BG 2. He was a bit of a pain in the ass, when he started to go on those lengthy monologues about how some made-up relatives of his knew about something, or did something really heroic, etc… That kind of eccentricity is often accompanied by a very sharp intellect. In the game, he was one of the many Mage / Thief companions you could get, so I admit it wasn’t easy to give each one a different feel and style. However, that wasn’t the case with Jan. He was certainly an INT-focused character, due to his eccentricity and fascination with trinkets and turnips, and his craftiness (he claimed he had modified his crossbow to make it do more damage). He needed to have all the Crafting skills that the game provides (which isn’t much), and he needed to be focused in Illusion because he was an illusionist in game. Also, there was a really cool interaction between him an Minsc when they were in the same party, as he would try to steal Boo from the big guy, so I decided to give him just a little bit of pick pockets for that reason.


      This is a sneaky Caster build, with Illusion spells like Invisibility, but also Stealth skills and HiPS, all the Rogue skills it could possibly want, and a good-DC Weird spell to kill enemies. Mass Blindness / Deafness will help a lot against a bunched up group of Melee enemies.
