Baldur's Gate Wiki

The Planar Prison Cell 4 (south of warden) 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 south of the Prison Warden, and north of the landing zone where the party entered the Planar Prison complex. It is also adjacent to Planar Prison Cell 5 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 several creatures within, and these include Four Minotaur, an elven Prison Captain (Fighter) and Prison Captain (Fighter Mage). Upon any party member entering the cell, hostilities will commence. The F/M will attempt a self-buff, the Fighter will engage in combat, while the minotaur group will rush toward the party to slash them with their battle axe weaponry.

If defeated, the chamber yields several items of equipment carried by the fallen combatants. See the applicable creature pages linked above for details. 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).
