Your entire core solid of Baldur’s Gate 3 will come collectively to role-play their very own characters in what I can solely describe as the final word D&D session.
On Friday, September 22 at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT / 7pm BST, Mark Hulmes of the Excessive Rollers D&D group will host the six actors behind Baldur’s Gate 3’s Origin characters for a tabletop session that seems to be sponsored by Larian Studios. We’ll see Neil Newbon as Astarion, Devora Wilde as Lae’zel, Samantha Béart as Karlach, Tim Downie as Gale, Theo Solomon as Wyll, and Jennifer English as Shadowheart.
Plainly the session has already been recorded, judging by the transient clip under with the actors introducing their characters, however it’s clear that we’re in for a very good time. With English introducing herself by referencing Shadowheart’s best meme you realize the vibes are gonna be good for that particular Dungeons & Dragons mix of earnest role-playing and very foolish shenanigans.

Even earlier than this D&D gathering, the principle Baldur’s Gate 3 solid members have been fairly proactive about sharing their love of the sport. Béart’s playthrough of Baldur’s Gate 3 as Karlach is an absolute delight – virtually as pleasant as watching Newbon get killed by his personal character after rolling a pure 1.
I spoke with Newbon final month – you possibly can learn a giant chunk of that Baldur’s Gate 3 dialog right here – however in just a few quotes that did not make the revealed interview the actor made completely clear that he’s and at all times has been a superfan of each D&D basically and Baldur’s Gate particularly.
“I performed the unique when it got here out,” Newbon instructed me. “My pals and I performed – it was the primary time I performed a role-play multiplayer sport, via a pal that had a LAN system or one thing. It was superb. I bear in mind being utterly blown away, and feeling that is as near tabletop role-play as you will get. I used to be additionally a D&D geek and a Warhammer geek and all this sort of stuff. I have been a fanboy for many of my life.”
It does not get rather more ‘full circle’ than rising up as a tabletop nerd and ultimately becoming a member of a D&D session because the beloved character you performed within the greatest digital Dungeons & Dragons sport ever. I am unable to wait to see what hijinks the entire solid will get as much as.
None of us on the GR+ places of work can cease roasting Heather for failing to recruit Karlach in Baldur’s Gate 3.
