First off, thanks to all the devs for all their hard work. It's great to play ToEE again. I started a new game last night (5.8 NC) and I'm concerned about my party size. I started the game with 6 PCs and I wont be recruiting any of the NPCs. Will this throw off the XP and leveling? Will 6 party members make parts too easy? Is the new content balanced around a party of 5? With a party of 6, what level should I expect everyone to be at toward the end of the game? Also, I set the PC's HP to Max as well as all NPC's HP to max. Is this a good balance? I set t it to max because I know I will save/reload at each level-up until I get a decent HP roll. Rolling for HP is probably the worst mechanic in D&D, imo. I'd be happy with the average each time. I'm looking to create a challenging game for myself. Last time I played, my party of five was too high level for much of the encounters and they rolled right through it easily. I realize that there's been a lot of balancing since I last played. I'm wondering how others setup their game.
