The group presses on to Baldur’s Gate. Upon arriving at the Westland Gate four days later, they are forced to navigate a city that is current in the midst of a riot as well as being invaded by the forces of Amn. The army (numbering approx. 10,000 foot soldiers plus siege engines) is currently focusing their efforts at the northern gate. The city is defending with archers.
The group decides to leave Lily and the Shield Guardian behind and away from the army. First the group must determine how to enter the city. The Riverside Slums cover the west and southwest side of the city, but that portion of the city is currently in revolt against the Elven Hunters.
The group decides to use the Chionthar River to enter the city. Kalenthor casts Water Breathing on the group and they enter the water upstream just past the Amn army. While traveling along the bottom of the river, the group is attacked by a giant shark.
