Gambling with Lives

dice placed between pastilles

A Burning Wheel campaign about a young doctor with a gambling addiction and dangerous connections, set in Baldur's Gate. As usual, we take liberties with the Forgotten Realms setting.


Mirtul Marszeth has left the stigma of her illegitimate birth behind in the lands north of the Winding Water when she moved to Baldur’s Gate, married an up-and-coming officer of the Flaming Fist and found a respectable calling. The pleasant convenience of her life is now threatened by Ravenscar, who took advantage of gambling debts she has accrued—indulging her addiction to games of chance—and blackmailed her into clandestine service as a medic to his thieves' guild.
