Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

Hank the ranger and Bobby the Barbarian make a cameo in the video game Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. In the Adventurers' Mart portraits can be seen of them that are snapshots from the cartoon.


If you click on Hank's portrait you get the following text:

"This is a painting of one of a group of young adventurers from long ago, this one a ranger... all of whom were attempting to return to their homeland far away. Word has it they died horribly at the hand of the dragon, Tiamat."

If you click on Bobby's portrait you get the following text:

"Another painting of a party of young adventurers from long ago, this one a diminutive barbarian. Rumour has it that this barbarian had a pet unicorn smaller than he... also swallowed by Tiamat, it is presumed."

  2. Relax, it's not canon! Most likely wish fulfilment from the game designer.

  3. Agreed,i think the whole idea of that is nothing but wishful thinking. Like you say its non-canon.

  4. I love it how the estabilished official work of people who have the authorization of changing the setting's canon IS NOT CANON just because the wishful thinking of some scorned fans says so.

  5. Yeah riiiight. Like every little piss-ant crack at killing established characters anywhere has to be cannon. Grand Tour places them as still alive and adults long after their alleged "deaths" and that one was from TSR itself. No. The Baldurs Gate mention is not cannon. TSR and later WOTC staff made that one clear.

  7. Baldur's gate reference is satire.
    Please google "satire" and get acquainted with the meaning of it.

  8. The Baldurs Gate could be canon in the sense that someone within the universe believes the rumors are true but they are mistaken. For all we know, it refers to an adventure the kids had where they were witnessed entering a dangerous situation facing Tamar and not witnessed emerging alive and their presumed death is just an assumption perpetuated by who or whatever is providing the descriptions within the game. That's one way to canonize the info.

  9. Debates over D&D 'cannon' are inane even when compared to other cannon debates. In Dungeons and Dragons, 'cannon' is always trumped by DM fiat. In a CRPG, the game engine is the DM. Therefore, the in-game description trumps cannon. While you are playing the game. Now when you're playing another game, you'll have to ask the DM.

  10. That's just an Easter Egg, nothing more.
