Recap: A Night with Dungeons & Dragons
On Thursday night from 7 PM - 11 PM, Baldur's Gate opened its gates to travelers from across Faerûn for a one-of-a-kind event. Attendees were able to mingle with D&D designers, authors, and other industry luminaries while enjoying food, drinks, music, adventure and more (plus, receive a special give-away exclusive to this event, shown below):
Something Foul Afoot in Baldur's Gate: Amid preparation for Founders Day, a sinister plot unfolded. Those closest to Duke Adrian Abdel fell to the blade of assassination, and it was up to attendees to uncover the truth in a murder mystery puzzle created by the devious minds of Lone Shark Games. Those who helped solve the mystery and become champions of justice had a chance to win awesome D&D prizes, including the unique sword (its construction chronicled in Parts One, Two, and Three).
