D&D Baldur’s Gate Sourcebook brings back Minsc & Boo
Wizards of the Coast has released a new Dungeons & Dragons source book for the Extra Life charity, featuring Minsc & Boo from the Baldur’s Gate series.
Wizards of the Coast in the shadow of a new Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook, with Minsc and Boo du Baldur’s Gate series. All proceeds from the book will go to the Extra Life charity, which has raised more than $ 30 million for sick children since 2008 through various game marathons.
Minsc debuted in Baldur’s Gate as one of the party members who might be recruited during the early hours of the game. He’s always accompanied by his animal companion, Boo, who is a miniature giant space hamster. Minsc is a Ranger, who originally swore to protect a Rasheman witch, named Dynaheir. When Dynaheir is killed before the events of Baldur’s Gate 2, he joins the party and swears revenge on his killer. Minsc and Boo were then petrified and woke up to the modern age. The duo are still on an adventure in the Forgotten Realms to this day and can be seen in the pages of the D&D comics.
A new D&D book featuring the Ranger & Hamster duo can now be purchased on the DM Guild website. The book is called Journal of Villany de Minsc and Boo, and it was written by James Ohlen, who was the lead designer / creative designer on Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn, as good as Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Dragon Age: Origins. Ohlen runs one of Wizard of the Coast’s game development studios. Journal of Villany de Minsc and Boo costs $ 34.95 for the softcover edition, with all proceedings donated to the Extra Life charity.
Minsc and Boo’s Journal of Wickedness is a book that details the characters and places of the Baldur’s Gate series while updating them for the fifth edition of the game. The first chapter features familiar settings, like Baldur’s Gate and Athkatla; the second chapter introduces new group clients that players can use in D&D, like Jaheira and Xan Moonblade; the third chapter deals with the villains, with Bhaal, the god of murder, probably the most familiar to fans, as they attempt to stop his rebirth in the Baldur’s Gate Games. The fifth chapter deals with the goons, including Sarevok, the villain of the original Baldur’s Gate, who can join in the fun in Throne of Bhaal; and the last chapter contains stat blocks for monsters including Gibberlings and Wolfweres.
Journal of Villany de Minsc and Boo is not the only one D&D book that will feature the duo. It was revealed during the D&D 2021 celebration that a new D&D book with Minsc and Boo is coming in 2022. It is likely that the book will somehow connect to the next one. Baldur’s Gate 3, which is currently in Early Access but is also slated for release next year.
