Baldur's Gate 3: The Value of a Single Mortal Life Answered

Embarking on a Philosophical Journey in Baldur’s Gate 3’s Overgrown Ruins

Welcome, adventurers! Today, we’ll delve into the mystical realm of the Overgrown Ruins in Baldur’s Gate 3. Prepare yourselves, for you are about to encounter a truly mind-boggling question posed by a curious undead creature: “What is the worth of a single mortal life?” Deep, right?

Now, fellow gamers, you have a choice to make. Will you answer honestly, seeking the moral high ground? Or will you embark on a quest to find the best possible outcome? Hey, maybe you’ll even decide to turn the tables and silence the undead creature with a sword swing or two. The choice is yours!

But hold on, brave souls! Before you make your decision, let’s take a moment to explore the consequences of each possible action. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Just remember, if you’re committed to full-on role-playing, you might want to close your eyes and discover these outcomes for yourself.

Unveiling the Secrets: Correct Answer(s) to the Riddle in the Overgrown Ruins

Figure this out! Surprisingly, all the options available to you have a passable outcome. However, attacking the creature or answering selfishly isn’t going to win you any brownie points with our undead friend, Withers. In fact, he seems to warm up to answers 1 and 4 the most. So, if you’re looking to make friends with a philosophical skeleton, keep that in mind.

Oh, and did I mention that different characters might have a specially tailored, race and class-based 7th answer? It’s like a little bonus prize for all the fellow nerds out there.

Now, let’s get to know this enigmatic creature a bit better, shall we? Withers, as we’ve come to call him, might not reveal his real name until later (the mystery is half the fun). While he can’t be added as a party member, he does offer resurrection services for 200 shiny gold coins per service back at camp. So, try not to make him angry, or you might find yourself needing a resurrection sooner than you think.

Oh, and a word of caution: don’t be rash and think you can deal with Withers the conventional way. This guy is tough to kill, or at least, he doesn’t go down easily. It’s safe to assume he’s a lich or has undergone some other form of eerie transformation. Spooky, right?

Exploring the Dark Crypt with Withers

Behold, the Dark Crypt! As you venture through this eerie area, you may stumble upon a trap near the front door. Or, if curiosity gets the better of you, take a detour to wander around. Withers, always the observant soul, will share his thoughts on this dank crypt before leaving. Don’t worry, he won’t spoil the surprise entirely – he’s leaving a little mystery for you to discover on your own.

And there you have it, dear adventurers! The Overgrown Ruins of Baldur’s Gate 3 hold many wonders and conundrums. Remember, this game is currently available in Early Access on PC, so dive in and start unraveling the mysteries. And fear not, console gamers! The PlayStation 5 version will soon grace us on September 6th, 2023, with an Xbox Series X/S version still in development.

Happy gaming, and may your adventures be filled with laughter and unexpected encounters!
