Only weeks ago, the malevolent Sarevok brought the city of Baldur’s Gate to the edge of destruction. You, like him, are a child of Bhaal the dead god of murder. Bhaal foresaw his own death and sired mortal children in an effort to bring about his return. Sarevok intended to become the new Lord of Murder. You put an end to Sarevok’s plans and slew your half-brother. With his passing, you became known as the hero of Baldur’s Gate.
Now a new threat casts a shadow over the city. A massive army on a holy crusade has thrown the sword coast into turmoil. Little is known of the crusade’s leader, the charismatic warrior Caelar Argent. Those who follow her revere her as the Shining Lady, but her background and goals are shrouded in mystery. Some say she is divine, a hero sent by the gods to crush evil, no matter the cost. Others whisper that she is another spawn of Bhaal, intent on following the same path as Sarevok.
One thing above all else is clear, if the Sword Coast is to find any measure of peace, Caelar Argent must be stopped.
