    Hey, everyone!

     

    This is my NWN interpretation of Kivan, the Ranger companion you could recruit in Baldur’s Gate 1. His story was a pretty grim one. He had been captured by bandits with his wife, and was tortured for days before he was able to escape. His wife, however, wasn’t so lucky, and died at the hands of the Half-Ogre Tazok, leader of the bandits. If you help him kill Tazok, he will join your party. He doesn’t talk much in general, and dislikes Evil characters and big mouths. In combat, he was an archer, as you can see in his portrait, and a Ranger by trade. So, unsurprisingly, I’ve made him into a Ranger / AA with a bit of Bard just to get access to the skills.

     

    This build is VERY good with a bow, but can also stand toe-to-toe with enemies if ranged combat is not an option thanks to Weapon Finesse, can disable a few traps and set all Deadly traps. It’s not his specialty, it’s more like a backup plan on the side. The good thing about this build is that it has 53 AB and against a few enemy types, it’ll benefit from Bane of Enemies, to increase damage output, which is always a problem for an Archer. His 14 STR also means that he can make good use of the Mighty property in bows, especially with an Ioun Stone and Bull’s Strength from either a wand, scroll or potion. All in all a very solid archer build.
