Murder in Baldur's Gate
The Wide is the main market and gathering area for the Upper City. All manner of merchants, service providers and food stalls from both Patriars and the wealthier merchants of the Lower City can be found here during the day. In the evenings the space is often converted to a gathering area for private functions.
The process for obtaining a stall as a non-Upper City resident involves lining up at the main gate early in the morning and paying a daily fee. Merchants who have held booths longer get priority placement in higher trafficked areas of The Wide.
The most prominent landmark in the city is located in the middle of The Wide – a statue known as the Beloved Ranger, a hero named Minsc and his tiny hamster Boo.
