Obviously, Icewind Dale doesn't come with joinable NPCs, so there's a question of what you do for party members. There are currently 3 options (other than playing solo).

1) You could start a multi-player game and give yourself control of all party members, just as in BG2 when you want to create your own party. This is probably closer to the "pure" IWD experience. It's best to start a game, save immediately, quit, and move the save-game from the "MPSAVE" folder to the "SAVE" folder.

2) The IWD-in-BG2 fixpack/tweakpack ships with twelve joinable NPCs. These are BG1-level (so no banter, not many interjections) and are built out of the portraits and sounds that come with IWD (as well as using bits of class-specific IWD dialog). You can get these NPCs by installing the appropriate component of "ice-tutu-tweaks", the tweakpack that ships with IWD-in-BG2. Seven are in Kuldahar, five in Easthaven.

3) You can use a third-party mod that adds joinable BG2-style NPCs. Currently the only available choice is Kulyok's IWD NPCs mod over at Pocket Plane Group (you need the IWD-in-BG2 version).

I thought it might be helpful to list the Ice-tutu-tweaks NPCs. (Usual disclaimer: these are BG1-level NPCs I built for fun and for testing, they're not fully fleshed out.)

Easthaven

Ragnar (Male dwarf fighter): in the tavern
Vilmar (Male human barbarian): temple of Tempus
Eloise (Female half-elven mage/thief): upstairs at Pomab's Emporium
Endricane (Male human cleric of Lathander): outside the scrimshanders' shop, by the west lakeshore
Marcus (Male human assassin): in the Snowdrift Inn

Kuldahar
Ilauna (Female human specialist wizard): in Orrick's tower (talk to Orrick first)
Moranir (Male human avenger): by the statue (talk to Arundel first)
Elyvir (Female elven archer): in the Evening Shade inn
Morgana (Female half-elven bard): in the Root Cellar tavern
Syleen (Female human undead hunter): in the Root Cellar tavern
Arris (Male elven sorcerer): in Oswald's airship
Kori (Female dwarven fighter/cleric): in the blacksmith's

Updated to mention that Kulyok's mod is now IWD-in-BG2 compatible.
