I'm going to be playing in an AD&D 2nd Edition game. The DM will be ruthless and the RPing will be minimal. I need to represent (i'll only be able to play for about 3 months before I move).
The party thus far has an Elven Ranger and an Elven Thief.
Another friend playing was looking at Fighter/Thief.
This leaves me tempted to play a cleric/mage for the sheer number of spells available. The other thought was a cleric built using the spells and magic so that they are basically a paladin with spells at level one and without all the trouble. Also, as I won't be in for long I need to take advantage of the lower levels.
I rolled up my 3d6 arranged to taste stats and have been blessed with a 13 and a 12. Everything else is garbage. (IE 5, 8, 9, and 11)
The setting is Forgotten Realms.
Any legitimate AD&D kits or options are available. Skills and powers? Totally ok. Spells and magic? Totally ok.
Any help would be appreciated. I have a few days to sort this out.
