Murder in Baldur's Gate
It Begins With Blood
During a public speech in The Wide to celebrate the founding of the city, Duke Abdel Adrian was attacked and killed by a man he referred to as Viekang. Moments before the attack several figures drew weapons and killed members of The Watch standing guard at the front of the stage.
The party was at the event and witnessed the attacks. They jumped into action and killed both the humans and the demon. This gave them some small measure of fame throughout the city as the “Heroes of the Wide”.
