Come one, come all! See the cream of the Sword Coast's combatant crop! Witness the brilliant and bizarre battles in the Black Pits of the one and only Baeloth the Entertainer!

Baeloth Barrityl is a chaotic evil drow sorceror and a potential companion.BG:EESoD

Backstory Edit

Baeloth runs the Black Pits, a death battle arena, in the Underdark, he considers it "the best show" and himself to be "one of the top five spellcasters in all the realms".

The Black PitsEdit

In the final battle in the Black Pits, which takes place briefly before the event of Baldur's Gate, he proves to be very powerful, able to use spells such as Chain Lightning, Delayed Blast Fireball, and Power Word Stun. Defeated, he's then tricked by his djinn "servant" Najim and cast into the Sword Coast.

Dialogues Edit

BPA101
What's next? Ah, this group. Are they awake yet? Up! Rouse yourselves, you lice-laden layabouts. Stand and salute your new master, Baeloth the Entertainer.
BPL103
I'm afraid I can't let you go. I would be disappointing dozens of desperately depraved devotees of my devious diversions! And just look at all the hard work I've put into creating this colossal complex of combat! But you wouldn't want that to go to waste, would ya?
BPL107
Ah, you have returned! Are you ready to spill blood on the arena floor?

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Edit

Recruitment Edit

Baeloth is available from Chapter 1. He can be found in Larswood, to the south near an abandoned tower. You must be at least level 5 for him to appear (later patches seem to remove the experience requirement, meaning that you may recruit him in lower levels).

Accepting Baeloth into your party causes a loss of 2 reputation, which is restored when he is dismissed from the party.

Relationships Edit

  • Ajantis Ilvastarr will eventually attack any of the evil party members, but you can call him off by controlling him to do something else

Gameplay Edit

As a drow, he has natural magic resistance of 50%. His first two levelups after his joining grant you the choice of a lvl3 spell and a lvl4 spell respectively, choose them wisely, some useful spells are either gained randomly or from very limited sources (Stoneskin) while some others won't be available until you unlock Sorcerous Sundries in Chapter 5,

He begins play with a Robe of the Evil Archmagi, a Quarterstaff +1, 10 Darts of Acid +1, 2 Speedily Stolen Slaves' Salve, and the Cursed Ring of Ironic Punishment which adds to his spells similar to Edwin's amulet. If you choose to kill him rather than recruit him, you do not get the ring (apparently, the curse persists through death), but you do get 1,000 Goldpieces.

In-Game Biography Edit

When asked about his past, Baeloth Barrityl, or "Baeloth the Entertainer" as he prefers to be called, claims to be a drow sorcerer of some repute. While he keeps some of his earlier exploits vague, he brags excessively about his most recent endeavor, the Black Pits. While it all ended in failure, he maintains that it was "the best show in all the realms."
The circumstances of his defeat within the pits are unclear; he claims dishonesty on the part of his combatants was a key factor.

Dialogues Edit

BAB002
You fool! I am not fully revived! I am diminished, damaged, and DANGEROUSLY DETERIORATED! Why, I've even lost some of my perspicacity!
BAB003
Najim? Are you even LISTENING? My most obedient serv—friend! WHERE ARE YOU?! Surely you aren't going to leave me UP HERE!
BAB004
Argh! YOU CONNIVING CUR! I will crack your realm wide open and DRAG YOU INTO THIS PLANE OF— Oh, hello. Well, this is awkward.
BAB005
Greetings, friendly, ah, surface-dweller. You wouldn't happen to know the direction of the nearest entrance to the Underdark, would you?
BAB008
How could I forget?! Allow me to introduce myself. I am Baeloth Barrityl, more commonly known as BAELOTH THE ENTERTAINER! Yes, I know. THAT Baeloth. Fall to your knees and beg for mercy; I'm sure you know the drill.
BAB011
My most recent project was a little something I called the Black Pits. I'm sure you've heard of it. Mortal pitted against mortal in a desperate bid to... oh, it doesn't matter anymore.
BAB020
Clearly, I still command SOME of my powers. Even in this diminished state, I must remain one of the top five spellcasters in all the realms. If someone were to offer me martial protection, I'm sure I could be of great help to... whatever it is you're doing.

I hope you're satisfied. Look at my clothing! Caked-on mud everywhere! Do you have any idea how many hairy, four-legged BEASTS I had to avoid while making my way here? Woofs, were they? Wharves? I don't know.
BAB028
YES! At last, some protection! Protection for YOU, that is. I will join you. So that you can feel safe.

In Larswood, Baeloth has a lengthy one-sided conversation with his treacherous Djinn servant Najim before he notices the protagonist's party standing nearby. It takes a great deal of dialog (with an occasional interjection from Neera, Viconia, Edwin or Tiax on his penchant for alliteration) to recruit Baeloth into your party; only the first two levels of dialog options are shown here.

It's about time you came through for me. I was beginning to wonder whether your incompetence was— Wait, this isn't right!

You fool, I am not fully revived! I am diminished, damaged, and DANGEROUSLY DETERIORATED! Why, I've even lost some of my perspicacity!

(Neera: Hehehe!)

Argh! YOU CONNIVING CUR! I will crack your realm wide open and DRAG YOU INTO THIS PLANE OF— Oh, hello. Well, this is awkward.

  • 2.2:-The thing about that is... I left my kneepads back at home, and, well, you know how these things go.
  • 2.3:-Die, drow!

Oh, COME ON!

Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear Edit


Recruitment Edit

Baeloth is available from Chapter 8, you can find him among the crowds gathered in his new "black pits" in the north of the Coast Way Crossing, watch his show (turns into a disaster) then offer him a place in party.

In-Game Biography Edit

When asked about his past, Baeloth Barrityl, or "Baeloth the Entertainer" as the drow prefers to be called, maintains that in his Underdark homeland he commanded great respect as a sorcerer. Now on the surface, he makes a living instead pitting combatants against one another in betting rings. "My shows were the best in all the realms," he muses fondly, though his last great endeavor ended in disaster. Baeloth attempted to regain some of his renown with a new fighting pit, only to learn that giving forest animals fierce names was not enough to draw the attention of the spectators. After repeatedly failing to inspire bloodthirsty rage in squirrels and mice, he abandoned the effort and moved on. You have a feeling Baeloth is still looking for his next great exploit.
