Ar2300worldmap Friendly Arm Inn is one of the areas from the World Map.

The Friendly Arm Inn area consists mostly of a walled keep containing a large inn and several other buildings in its courtyard.  It is found along the Coast Way between Baldur's Gate and Beregost.

The inn was once a keep used as the base of operations of a cleric of Bhaal, but the gnome adventurers Bentley Mirrorshade, his wife Gellana and their comrades raided the stronghold and killed the priest. Now, they have turned the keep into an inn and an adjacent structure into the Temple of Wisdom, and run both themselves.

Important EventsEdit

Safe at last at the Friendly Arm Inn! My next step should be to find and introduce myself to Khalid and Jaheira, friends of Gorion. They can give me some advice as to what to do next.


A Rogue OgreEdit

Unshey would like you to get her belt back from an ogre roaming the Coast Way.

Joia's Flamedance RingEdit

Some hobgoblins outside of town stole Joia's ring.

Landrin's PossessionsEdit

Landrin had to abandon her home in Beregost due to a spider problem.

Assassination attemptsEdit

  • Tarnesh at the foot of the Inn's steps.

Other significant eventsEdit


Reputation trapEdit

If your Reputation is lower than 3 you will be attacked by groups of three Flaming Fist Enforcers, a Flaming Fist Scout and a Flaming Fist Battle Wizard. The Flaming Fist will attack suddenly both in the courtyard and within the inn itself.

Notable lootEdit

  • Evermemory, lying between some rocks and a conifer in the southern, second from the path group of trees (2553.3760)


Before you head south, you may want to make a brief detour to the north (just inside the Fishing Village area) to recruit Ajantis Ilvastarr into your party, especially if you are still in need of a melee fighter. For a Good-aligned party, he is less annoying company and a more capable companion than Xzar and Montaron combined. A little self-righteous blather is a small (?) price to pay for a companion that won't eventually abandon you or murder your other companions. Neutral or evil parties would do better to pick up Kagain, a far better fighter, in Beregost. Baeloth Barrityl is at the outer side of the southeastern wall when he's not recruited in the party.
