I dig playing my half-elf barbarian a whole lot. I don't feel like making a
whole new character. I just completed the original campaign.

Would starting a level 16 half-elf barbarian in SOU be terrible? Would it
ruin the SOU campaign for me?

I'd imagine the game would be horribly easy for you, since it's designed
for level 1. You could use a leveling mod to bring your guy back down to
a more reasonable level.

It would make it over-easy for you - not much of a challenge. Your original
character should have been saved at level 1 - you could start off with that.
Or you could start HOTU with your original character - even though HOTU is
strictly a follow on to SOU.

Best wishes

I enjoyed taking my Wizard through the OC and both expansions. Finished at
level 32. Some of the fights in SOU were easy I'll grant you as I started at
20 I believe but I left the game on the Difficult setting throughout. At least
I had to be careful where i aimed. ;-)

That depends. Do you care about combat...at all? It would be a lot
like playing in god-mode. If you only want to see the plot (and don't
care about it making sense for your PC), it doesn't matter.

That was my point when I chose to take a single character through he all 3
campaigns. I still use him for modules that I download now.

In the beginning it'll be quite easy, but near the end enemy numbers scale
with the character level so that even a level 20 char gets a challenge.

Very true... also don't forget you can increase the difficulty level
from the options menu and / or play without henchmen...

If you want a challenge, don't. But if you want the game to be easy and you
want to upgrade your character, it's a good idea.
