Welcome to a world of intrigue, adventure and fierce
Every world has conflict. Good and evil. Friend and
foe. Safety and danger. In Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn™,
you'll find yourself between these factions. This epic sequel will immerse
you in a world of intrigue, adventure and fierce combat where your ability
to discern the difference between these sides - with the assistance
of steel and spell - determines your fate.

Sarevok and prevented your father Bhaal, the dead Lord of Murder, from
returning to the Forgotten Realms. Now, in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows
of Amn™, the stakes have become much higher. Will you resist the
evil within you, and forge a legend of heroic proportions? Or will you
embrace your monstrous inner nature, and carve a swath of destruction
across the Realms?
Your story begins anew in the exotic southern kingdom
of Amn, amidst the opulence of the sinister capital city of Athkatla.
Journey through the fierce, unforgiving wilderness of Amn, and through
the treacherous caverns of the Underdark, in your quest for artifacts
of awesome power and treasure of inestimable wealth.. even challenge
dragons, if you dare. Such is the life of a legend.
