Larian Studios hid some interesting details about what happens to the grove if players decide to help Minthara and the goblins raid it, luckily, a Baldur’s Gate 3 fan shared their discoveries about the faith of the refugees hiding there.

Baldur’s Gate 3 gives players almost free rein on what to do when facing turning points. Even if it’s not always obvious how players’ decisions affect Faerun, Larian Studios have hidden short dialogues and even some environmental clues pointing out their actions’ consequences.

During Act 1, players are asked to help goblins raid a grove full of tiefling refugees. In a post called “Zurga commentary makes grove raid even worse,” a player discovered a sinister detail that explains what happens to them if characters decide to help Minthara and the goblins.

If you manage to enter the Goblin Camp peacefully, you’ll see they’re roasting a dwarf.

“If you speak to goblin Zurga near Minthara after the raid she will ask you about the taste of tiefling flesh. It implies that goblins are going to cook and eat poor tiefs they killed,” said Reddit user ‘JunkyardEmperor’.

Baldur’s Gate 3 fans quickly pointed out that the first time players encounter goblins, they are ‘cooking a dwarf from the Aradin’s party’ in their camp.

“They’re literally roasting a dwarf over the fire during their party and have a butchered human in the warg pit. The kennel master warns you ‘For the last time, these are for the wargs’ implying that the other goblins keep trying to eat the human meat,” recalled Reddit user ‘PixelBoom’.

But as disturbing as eating tieflings sounds, some other players mentioned that during a Dark Urge run you can also eat the dwarf that goblins are initially cooking at their camp. “And it doesn’t even cost a bonus action in combat,” said user ‘SirBigWater’ and pointed out that this method can be used to regain HP.

And that’s everything on the macabre secret Baldur’s Gate 3 players discovered about Act 1. If you want to know more about Larian Studios’ RPG, you can check what useful mechanics you can easily miss while playing and how to use Soul Coins.
