Murder in Baldur's Gate
Murder in Baldur’s Gate
Baldur’s Gate is a city on the verge of war—a simmering stewpot of social tensions where even the smallest drop of unrest might cause it to boil over and turn the city against itself. Walls cut Baldur’s Gate into three cities. The rich live atop bluffs protected from the bourgeoisie. Their homes cling to the slopes that literally prevent member of the middle class from rising above their stations. Beyond the protection of the walls, the city’s many outcasts live with no law aside from that enforced by the daggers of thieves.
In this powder keg, an old threat flickers to new life. The plot of a murdered deity finally comes to fruition, resurrecting the god of assassins. Bhaal wilI live again. And in the city that once thwarted his rebirth, three prominent figures unwittingly compete to herald his return.
As the bodies clog the streets, can the heroes keep the city from tearing itself apart? Can they prevent Bhaal from claiming the mind and soul of one of the city’s most powerful citizens? Or, as they battle their way to the top of the heap, will Bhaal’s favor fall upon one of them?
Only one thing is certain: There will be blood.
