A Baldur’s Gate 3 player has shown off their strange collection, after killing all of the tieflings in Emerald Grove and taking their corpses along for the rest of the game. Choosing between siding with the goblin camp and the Emerald Grove tieflings is one of the hardest decisions in Baldur’s Gate 3, but it’s no secret what side this particular player is on.
Player freedom stands at the heart of Baldur’s Gate 3. While many RPGs present the illusion of choice, Larian’s title does a brilliant job of ensuring every decision truly matters in the long run. Because of the sheer volume of ways that decisions can pay off in Baldur’s Gate 3, some players might not even realize when it’s happening in-game. As a result, the game has seen plenty of critical acclaim since its release, and is even among The Game Awards 2023 nominees in some stacked categories, not least Game of the Year.
The post was first made on Twitter by user soulsowmoon, showing off the collection of tiefling corpses from Emerald Grove, stored in what they call their ‘special box.’ Some of the Baldur‘s Gate 3 characters found in the box are extremely crucial throughout the game, such as:
This is among other characters, which could completely alter the trajectory of their game. As a result of their decision to kill all the tieflings, they’ll likely miss out on plenty of the content that Baldur’s Gate 3 has to offer. The tweet even caught the attention of Larian Studios boss Swen Vincke, who responded with a simple ‘Nice.’
It’s unclear what led the player to carry around the tiefling corpses in Baldur’s Gate 3. In some of the replies, it’s revealed that this run is a Dark Urge run of the game, so it’s possible that it is all in the name of roleplay. Others pointed out that the collection isn’t quite complete without Gale’s hand. For this, they replied multiple times that it was ‘in my pocket.’
Over three months have passed since the PC launch of Baldur’s Gate 3, and gamers are still discovering everything possible in the RPG. It’s the type of game that players will be exploring for years to come, but there’s still one platform that has yet to receive it: Xbox. There’s good news just around the corner, though. Larian recently confirmed when Baldur’s Gate 3‘s Xbox release date will be revealed, hinting that it won’t be long before even more players can get their hands on one of the best RPGs in years.
