    I would be torn between Artemis and Jarlaxle, but since Artemis was the only choice out of the two, I vote for him. Badass skills, badass character and a whooper of a character development to boot. That's why he got my vote. :D Altho I do admit I was tempted to vote Wulfgar after what had happened in the Paths of Darkness series. ;)

    I liked wulfgar in the beggining but then I started reading The Silent Blade (which is a great novel) and Entreri went through so much development and started to look for something more in his life, and I find myself realting to him in a big way.. SO i chose him =)

    Yeah, The Silent Blade is a good starter for Artemis' development, but definitely the Sellswords trilogy takes the cake for that aspect. Dreyr, I seriously recommend this series to you. You'll be amazed by what RA Salvatore did to him and Jarlaxle. ;)

    ehh... artemis was way more bad ass before the silent blade. When reading the Icewind Dale trilogy he was that character I loved to hate... salvatore did a good job at that. But now salvatore turned him into a character that's kind of "good" and is always second guessing himself, thinking of what's right and whats wrong... and to me he's that character is just annoying. There isn't any bad guys in the Drizzt series that is like the old entreri. Shame on you slavatore for doing that!

    As for the development of Jarlaxle... I'm glad salvatore did that. He's always been a unique and mysterious character to me, and he still is but I have a better understanding of who he really is now.

    tbh I really like what Salvatore did to Artemis during The Silent Blade and the Sellswords trilogy. True he maybe more badass before that, but that's only in the killer sense. Before Salvatore dropped the bomb on him, Artemis is just a simple one dimensional character w/o any developements. The Silent Blade was the book that brought him forward as a character while the Sellswords made him into a more humane and believable character.

    Goddamnit where is Harkle Harpell? Have you seen his anti-Illithid spell? It's amazing. Man makes me laugh so much.

    Montolio for his little speech about gods and the fact that he can shoot a bow blind with deadly accuracy.

    That's b/c they don't really have much developement except for Wulfgar. But I'm really surprised no one voted for him. And yes, Harkle and Pwent should be in the poll as well for being the most lmao characters in the series. ;)

    I couldn't have put it better myself. Jarlaxle definately should have been in the poll but it would have been difficult to choose between Jarlaxle and Entreri if they had been both placed in the poll. The Sellswords Trilogy is an excellent recommendation, amazing character development for those two, the series was incredible...I highly recommend it as well.

    I believe there was another thread about "Your favourite Forgotten Realms Character" and I already explained in it why Jarlaxle and Entreri kick ass. :D

    I like Bruenor. I don't want him to change. He's already an awesome gruff Dwarf; just the way he needs to be.

    I think the problem in Bruenor developing in the future is that Salvatore can't really come up with a satisfactory way to it. To him, it's like he will be damned by certain quarters of the fans if he do so in any way and form. Bruenor's character was that of a standard Dwarf that kicks much ass and that was something that the fans were used to and they really like him for that. To tweak his character means tweaking with the Dwarven race to both Bruenor fans and those who were neutral towards him in the sense of nature. So no, I don't think he can actually be molded as a so-called better character unlike ppl like Jarlaxle, Artemis and Drizzt where they have an absolute advantage in terms of their past. Now if only Capcom develope the balls to make Ryu much more than the cardboard cut-out he is right now. :S But then again, I doubt the company will do any decent efforts on that in SF4. >.<

    Edit: I've found out that Ryu still has a certain beef with Satsui no Hadou in 4 from what I've heard. Maybe Capcom is doing something correct now?

    Gotta say, Artemis Entreri is one of the deepest and most interesting characters that has been created thus far.
