Question about level 1 multi-class
I was driving home yesterday thinking about how much I loved 2e multi-classing rules when I realised I'd forgotten something crucial about the system. Is a level 1 multi-classed hero always more powerful than a level 1 pure?
Take the example of a level 1 Fighter compared with a level 1 Fighter/Thief. IIRC when you multi-class, your XP gains are split equally between each class and they level up independently of each other. At the start of BG, a Fighter will have the effective power of a level 1 Fighter, whereas the other character will have the effective power of a level 1 Fighter combined with thieving skills/abilities?
Have I got this right?
