I am Volo, and I have traveled more of these Realms than any other. I'd bet ye a bag of gold and a half-dozen kegs of bitter black ale that ye cannot look upon the murderous beasts and minions of evil in the adventure ye hold in your hand and not turn tail. So waste no more time in your drab, humdrum world - it is time to draw steel in Baldur's Gate and test your mettle. Who knows, ye may find me there waiting to pay off the bet - or propose a better one, double or nothing!
