BGII and Torment NPC Conversions

Perhaps amazingly, some of the most fascinating, well-developed, and, well, amusing Dungeons and Dragons came from Black Isle/Bioware's Baldur's Gate series and Planescape: Torment, CRPGs from 1998-2001. These characters are so cool, in fact, I think many of them would make fabulous NPCs (or even PCs) in table-top D&D. Since these games were hybrid AD&D Second Ed-based games, I thought I'd try my hand at writing up "3.5 versions" of some of these characters, ready for table-top development and action. These are just suggestions, of course, but I hope other fans of these characters might find these versions of the characters useful or at least interesting. More will be added as I have time to do so.

Conversion Notes: Read if you want to understand what or why I did what I did. Some credits at end.
