Storyline

In the high fantasy medieval world of Forgotten Realms lies the continent of Faerun. Baldur's Gate is one of the biggest and most important trading towns and city-states on the continent. The young ward of mystical monk Gorion, whose name, sex, race and class are defined by the players, lives in the keep of the monk order Gorion belongs to. He or she has never been outside or known anything about his/her parents. One night, the ward has a disturbing nightmare. In the morning, Gorion sends the ward away for his/her protection. The ward is joined by her/his best friend Imoen, a skillful thief. Their adventure soon takes a dark turn when they witness Gorion's murder by a strange man in the forest. After some adventuring, the ward meets Jaheira, a half-elf fighter and druid, and her beloved husband Khalid, both of whom are old friends of Gorion. They offer help and a goal - to investigate the suspicious shortage of iron ore that has befallen the land recently and made everyone paranoid ...

Fun, fun, fun!
10 July 2001 | by sttropezSee all my reviews

A brilliantly put together role-playing strategy game a la Dungeons & Dragons, with real characters and sub-plots, swords and sorcery. The player controls up to 6 characters (sometimes more, though magical means) who can interact with each other and who have their strengths and weaknesses. Like taking part in a novel.
