Episode 19 – Siege of Dragonspear – 8

This is the nineteenth episode of Mages and Murderdads, a pod/vid cast where Danni and CMRN play through the Baldur’s Gate series and talk about the experience. In this episode, the crew talk to a very special guest: Phil Daigle, the lead designer on Siege of Dragonspear. They talk about the Forgotten Realms, encounter design, and hint at Baldur’s Gate 3. It’s a great conversation!

Also they talk about Elminster.

Baldur’s Gate is a computer role-playing game (CRPG) from the late 1990s that is largely thought to be one of the greatest RPG games ever made. We really enjoy it and the series it started, so this is our attempt to play through the whole thing. It’s just a chill, fun time where we talk about alignment, Dungeons and Dragons, and a general plethora of stuff we care about in the Forgotten Realms. Siege of Dragonspear is the newest expansion to Baldur’s Gate developed by Beamdog. It is a fantasy adventure that has the player going to Dragonspear Castle to stop the Crusade of Caelar Argent. It’s complicated.
