I almost laughed when my coworker first mentioned how he hated how often "Minsc got chunked", my friends and I used the same term. Apparently it's a very common problem with BG players.
I don't mind a character being less than optimal, but he's just so annoying. If he were a bit less mandatory, I wouldn't mind so much.
Think that magic is broken in 3.5? Might I suggest this?
(It's a PDF, give it a sec to load. Despite the title, it is not psionics; it's the magic system you know and love, changed to use spell points instead of slots. Also, every caster is a spontaneous caster, every spell has been rebalanced and many are meshed together.)
