About the adventure

Where in the Nine Hells is Elturel? A holy city has gone missing, causing a swarm of refugees to find salvation in Baldur's Gate. The Flaming Fists, a mercenary organization and presumptive police in Baldur's Gate, are stuck trying to stem the tide of this flood of refugees. They've become so busy that people in the great port city are being volun-told that they'll be a part of the support force. Lucky for you, you've also been deputized. But something is amiss in the City of Murder and it's up to you and your newly assembled team to find out what has caused this spike in chaos and if it's at all connected to the missing city. Where in the Nine Hells will your discoveries will lead you? Where indeed.
