Baldur's Gate Wiki

The Planar Prison Cell 3 (next to cell 2) is a chamber that is accessed only by getting sucked down by a "Fleshy Trap" and is part of the Planar Prison complex - reachable only during the quest to Rescue Raelis and Haer'Dalis from the planar prison. The location of the trap is east of the Prison Warden, and next to Planar Prison Cell 2 (east of warden) and west of the Master of Thralls for further clarification.

A single member or group of party companions can be drawn in, if near the edge or on top of the pulsating trap. When a member is drawn into the object, the player message screen displays "The strange fleshy trap has sucked a party member down into another chamber below."

Anyone drawn down into the chamber will immediately be faced with a hostile group. If quick enough, party members can attempt to reverse their path and exit the fleshy trap chamber by standing upon the pulsating orifice, which if done correctly will move the party member back up to the Planar Prison, where they were initially "sucked below". If they remain in the chamber, they must face attacks by the inhabitants of the prison cell.


There are three creatures within, and they have a similar look, one is a Efreeti (Noble) and the other two are Efreeti. These magical genies from the elemental plane of fire will immediately respond to any intrusion with attacks upon the party. The creatures have various fire-based spell attacks, as well as slashing and bruising melee strikes. It is possible that one or more may become invisible to gain an advantage later in the confrontation.

If defeated, the chamber yields no found valuables after the strange encounter. Just the acrid odor of brimstone and the charred scorch marks left on the cell surfaces. This chamber will now be free of further inhabitants or spawned enemies. The party may exit the map via the Exit Icon (shown with the map cursor).
