Larian Studios added a special scene dedicated to all players who are looking to wreak havoc during Withers’ epilogue party. Here’s what Baldur’s Gate 3 players discovered.

Baldur’s Gate 3 players are fascinated with the new epilogue scene added after Patch 5, especially those who love testing the limits of every situation. Even though most fans preferred ending their game in peace while celebrating with their favorite companions, others tried to see what would happen if the main character suddenly attacked their party.

In a post called “There’s a cutscene if you decide to bring chaos to the party,” a Baldur’s Gate 3 fan posted a cinematic where an unencumbered Withers will end any shenanigans. However, the necromancer doesn’t only warn players but goes to extremes.

Withers has an efficient technique to stop players from fighting during the epilogue.

“Fascinating. Thou hast ventured long with thy comrades; shared food, fire, and friendship, but even such adamantine bonds could not prevent thee from ruining my party,” says the mysterious necromancer. And with a flick of his hand, a portal appears to suck the main character and vanish them from existence.

“Withers was not having it. Peepaw, threw you out like garbage,” described Redditor ‘Dragandearg,’ “I love that they added this, be polite in front of Withers guys.”

Players also debated what happens to the main character after being vanished, since it’s not really clear what type of powers Withers have, besides reviving companions, respecing their class and attributes, and providing snide comments about the party’s decision during their adventure through Faerun.

“My personal theory is, considering the portal is green, and Withers’ eyes and hand glow green similarly to when using the Speak With Dead spell, he’s just straight up sending you to the Fugue Plane,” speculated Redditor ‘ArcadiaXLO.’

Even if players seem to be overall grateful for the party, most of them are wondering why Withers would care so much about this party and what kind of endgame he is really looking for in Baldur’s Gate 3. “What does he get out of this? Is he just making sure we all stay in touch so we can be sent out to save the world again?,” wondered Redditor ‘Shadaroo.’

While this isn’t clear in any scene of the epilogue, some fans pointed out that he “hints that there is some business in the future that the party will be needed for,” so they are expecting Larian Studios to be pointing towards a future DLC.

And that’s everything about what happens if you disturb the epilogue party in Baldur’s Gate 3. If you want to know more about the game, check which Mind Flayer tadpoled your character at the beginning of your adventure and what are the new methods to recruit Minthara after Patch 5.
