A Baldur’s Gate 3 player demonstrates just how dark the game can get as they tried to achieve the worst possible fates for each companion on purpose.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has some disturbing elements, but it’s not wholeheartedly dark unless you intentionally make it so. The Dark Urge Origin, however, is one playthrough where your character’s dark past can catch up to them. Despite this, if you try to resist your evil nature as a Durge, it can lead to a rather positive ending.

In RPGs like this, most players try to get the best outcomes possible for all quests and in-game characters, if possible. However, one Durge player went out of their way to do the exact opposite. They created the worst possible ending for every Baldur’s Gate 3 companions, utilizing both quest outcomes and romance.

Redditor ‘lalo_cura’ shared how “to be the Dark Urge, both in the game and in reality” in the Baldur’s Gate 3 subreddit. They managed to “do all of these in one playthrough,” and explained the fates of each companion in detail.

For this path, the OP explains how to use Gale as a living weapon and repeatedly killing and reviving him. They also advise you to kill Shadowheart‘s parents in front of her after saving them. Meanwhile, if you hand over Astarion to the Gur, he will then turn him over to Cazador, “resulting in him being skinned alive and sacrificed.”

However, one of the cruelest fates awaits Wyll, who can be romanced and persuaded to extend his contract with Mizora. After that, you can romance Mizora and murder Wyll’s father, “damning him to an eternity in hell for absolutely nothing.”

One user jokingly called the OP Raphael, to which another user replied, “Even Raphael has standards. I think this would be too much even for him.” The devils in D&D are known to enjoy cruelty; Raphael and Mizora are two such examples in Baldur’s Gate 3. Other users chimed in to say that this playthrough is something Asmodeus and Mephistopheles would enjoy.

Another Baldur’s Gate 3 player cooked up an even worse fate for Astarion. “Help him ascend, if you’re romancing him become his spawn and play along with the obedient doormat routine so he feels nice and secure, then Dominate the Elder brain for yourself and enthrall him along with everyone else. He winds up right back where he started,” they explained.
