Synopsis: The former heroes of Baldur’s Gate have returned from their adventures in Ravenloft and the frozen northern reaches of the Realms. As each hero must face their own trials, the Ranger Minsc attempts to reclaim his place as a hero even though the people have a new hero.
Review: While I expected fantasy, adventure, action, and an interesting story, I did not expect to laugh as much as I did. This is well written, funny, and left me ready to buy the next edition. The artwork is classic DnD with bold details and a busy (in a good way) background. There is nothing flat about any of it and I love that just as much as the storyline.
Minsc and his sidekick hamster are lovable and funny. At the same time there is an equal balance of ego and heart. Baldur’s Gate has acquired a new fan!
Rating: I give Dungeons and Dragons: Evil at Baldur’s Gate #1A 5 Stars.
Dungeon’s and Dragons: Evil at Baldur’s Gate #1A can be bought for $3.99 in both digital and print editions at IDW Publishing.
