Baldur's Gate Wiki

The Crypt (Northwest of Tirdir's Grave) is a non-descript tomb located in the Athkatla Graveyard. There are no exterior clues as to what is inside. A doorway can be opened if the party desires to enter and explore it. The door is not locked or trapped.


The tomb is a single rectangular chamber with a tall ceiling supported by four stone columns. A single Iron barred window is present on one wall, with dirt encrusted stained glass, allowing weak light to enter during daylight hours. The floor of the chamber is coated in a fine layer of dust. No one has disturbed this crypt in quite some time.

Within the chamber is pedestal style sarcophagus in the center. A molded stone figure lies in repose on the lid of the sarcophagus - perhaps a rendering of some sort of male knight or warrior in armor. At the rear of the chamber is large iron reinforced chest with an inset lock.

Close examination of the sarcophagus lid indicates a hidden locking mechanism (difficulty 70). It could be rigged with a trap, so suggest a party rogue examine it. Within it, should the lid be shifted - can be found a Battle Axe +2.

The Chest is a container that can be opened, but it has a lock feature on it (with a difficulty rating of 80). Among various papers, wilted flowers, dried spices and evaporated perfumes is also seen a valuable Random treasure.
