This is the twenty-first episode of Mages and Murderdads, a podcast slash video show where Danni and CMRN play through the Baldur’s Gate series and talk about the experience. In this episode, our friends make their way through Waukeen’s Promenade and part of the Slum district. They get involved with a man who coos, fight against slavers in the Copper Coronet, and go to the circus. They pick up on lots of plot threads. What an episode!

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. We played through Siege of Dragonspear, and now we are into Baldur’s Gate 2, which is a wide and weird game of 2nd Edition Dungeons & Dragons experience. It’s a Gygaxian affair of the highest sort, and we are experiencing our best lives as adventurers in this fantasy world.
