Baldur's Gate Wiki

The High Priestess card, can be drawn from the deck of many things when agreeing to play a game with Aesgareth in the Watcher's Keep Teleport Maze.

This page is to document the potential spell effects of this card when it is drawn.


When a party member character engages in the third card draw contest with Aesgareth, there is an even chance of drawing the High Priestess card, or the Emperor (card).

If this card is drawn, the script controlled by Aesgareth's dialogue will apply this spell to the party member who drew the card.

The spell will animate a graphic visual effect and color glow over the character, and a sound effect will be audibled.

A "Silence" icon is placed in the character's portrait.

The target is now affected by a Silence effect. This effect will not expire.

This spell is unaffected by magic resistance, and all of its internal components have a 0 Power level.

As the effect is coded to be a curse, a Remove Curse is needed to eliminate it.

A Dispel Magic effect won't work on this spell.
