Baldur’s Gate 3 player slays a major villain by throwing their mom at them so hard they die



Baldur’s Gate 3 lets you go full-tilt evil, as I’ve been discovering in my Dark Urge honour mode rampage—but there’s evil that’s coded into the game’s narrative, and then there’s emergent evil. Well, I say ‘evil’, but I’m not even sure this counts. Two out of three people involved had it coming in some way, though before I can dig my claws into this messed-up turducken: Major spoilers for Act 3 incoming. 

Karlach casts Gortash’s mom on Gortash from r/BaldursGate3

This particularly inventive kill of Gortash comes from Syntactics2411 on the game’s subreddit. They’ve sought out, slain, and pocketed the body of Gortash’s mother. Then, they’ve used it to bludgeon him to death as Karlach, the person who Gortash wronged the most, and in doing so they’ve created a web of moral implications that makes both my head and my heart hurt.
