This is the twenty-eighth 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, the intrepid heroes go to the Winspear Hills. It’s a linear adventure, but it’s classic Gygaxian fare. Lots of golems, a troll cook, plus an old friend who we never expected to see again. There is also a maze, and an argument about what constitutes a genie.

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.
