Baldur's Gate Wiki

Tanner's Shop Cellar is first exploed by your party most probably because you are after Rejiek Hidesman who is fleeing from you from the floor above, the Tanner's Shop 1st Floor. As you come down the staircase Rejiek sprints and jumps in a staggard fashion toward another descending staircase. He is moving with abandon and you can hear him clattering down the wooden steps, taking several at a time. The stink of rotting flesh and musky ointments is strong. You observe the grisly sight of corpses on the floor, some in various stages of skinning and other desecrations. There is a dormant furnace on one wall, and two beds, some bed chamber furnishings, as well as a privy screened off with a wash tub, chamber pot and wash basin. How could anyone sleep in such a horrid stench?

It goes without saying that you should proceed with caution here. In fact, if Jaheira is in your party she will allude to this, as well as several other companions. If you can, try and detect any traps set by this devious mad man, as there is a Cloudkill, Fireball and Lightning Bolt traps prepared for the unwary.

A staircase leading down to the Tanner's Shop Dock is visible, and will further your progress in the Solve the "skinner" murders in the Bridge District questline if you follow Rejiek.

Notable Loot[]

You may search any containers in the room and find some valuables. If you wish to check for traps first, then go ahead and do so. A highly recommended action.
