Baldur's Gate

Durlag's Tower

Baldur's gate Durlag's Tower is an enormous citadel near the Wood of Sharp Teeth constructed by the dwarven hero Durlag Trollkiller. It's depths could best be described as a treasure filled deathtrap.

The top levels have been cleared of monsters, traps, and supplied as a base of operations. However - the tower's many lower levels remain full of lethal traps and deadly monsters. Exploring the sub-levels is extraordinarily dangerous, and should not be undertaken lightly.

To the northwest, near the are exit, a traveling businessman has set up a business selling adventuring wares to explorers poking about the ruins. He offers a wide array of ware, at a fair price.

To the north is a general storeroom playing host to a selection of wines and foods. Adjacent to that, sits the tower's chapel, where powerful holy books are stored, and the NPC cleric's Vicona and Branwen worship their deities.

As this floor contains the chapel and library, most of the arcane and divine spellcasters tend to congregate here. The exceptions tend to be their companions, such as Minsc or Montoran, who restlessly wait for their ally to finish with their research or studying.

The remaining NPC's typically meander about this Banquet Hall, enjoying the game tables or simply spending time by the grand fireplace.
