In Act 3, Baldur’s Gate 3 players are asked to save all the Gondians from the Steel Watch Foundry. While most believe this is extremely difficult because of their erratic behavior, a player just found out that there’s a hidden reason behind it.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is known for having an incredible amount of details that give players some clues about what’s happening outside the main storyline. Like with books, these Easter eggs are sometimes hidden within items, or even in mysterious notes that can be found scattered across the map.

In a Reddit post called “Iron Throne’s secret saboteur,” a fan shared a discovery that shocked all players who were having a hard time saving all the Gondians in Act 3 and revealed the reason behind the mysterious behavior of one of them during the fight.

“I cleared all the Gondians but one. One of the last to be released (Phoenix Lubbins) got it back from the pursuing fishermen and went down. Sad. I thought about reloading, but I figured it was better to just push on, but the loss stuck with me,” told Redditor ‘letsgococonut’ while describing their finding.

According to the player, they then went to the beach behind Carrion’s mansion in Act 3, and found the Gondian’s body lying on the sand. After checking the body, the fan found a note to Lord Gortash, where Lubbins was snitching on its own organization, which explains its erratic movements during the fight.

“I save scummed this like 4 times because he kept dying and he was the only one. I was so confused about why they were so hard-focused on him. Guess it’s good to know why. Next time if he dies he’s staying,” commented another fan who was surprised by the discovery.

Most Baldur’s Gate 3 players were shocked by the note and agreed that the same character also made things difficult when trying to save the Gondians. However, a player quoted the contents of the note and pointed out that the game describes it as it had been crumpled, unfolded, and re-crumpled as if Lubbins was unsure to send it.

“You’re also forgetting that it if it was found on their body it means it hadn’t been sent. Because if it had it wouldn’t have been on the body,” stated the player. Nevertheless, other fans thought that the character meant to send it finally, and the appearance of the main character just stopped him from sending it.

While Baldur’s Gate 3 players keep giving props to Larian Studios for these amazing details hidden in the game, you can check why players claim Minthara feels “incomplete” compared to other companions, and how to get “The Blood of Lathander” legendary mace.
