in this adventure book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition!

The city of Baldur’s Gate is the pride of West Faerûn—a mercantile stronghold ruled by the famous Grand Dukes. One year ago, a powerful merchant leader named Sarevok nearly catapulted the city into war with the neighboring nation of Amn. This crisis was averted, and the remnants of the organization were scattered throughout the Sword Coast.

Now, the city is threatened from within by agents of the nefarious Zhentarim, who seek to fill the power vacuum left behind in the wake of these events. Meanwhile, the Shadow Druids plot to destroy the city by performing terrible rituals, deep within the Cloakwood. Who will rise to oppose them?

I also want to express my strong desire to purchase a print version of this product. Or could we at least get some information about whether or not we can even expect it to be sold in print again?

There was. I own a copy. It may be going through an update and when it's being updated, it's not available through PoD.

Great Artwork catches the Balrdurs Gate vibe perfectly! Are there digital assets available? E.g. Player Maps in .jpg format or do we only get the plain PDF?

The timeline of this book needs work. It doesn't fit with the timeline for BG2 but I'm fine with that. However, even within the book itself its not consistent about what year it is (in terms of the non-5e dates).

Page 5 says the book is set in 1369 DR.
Page 5 says it has also been a year since the Iron Crisis (putting it in 1369 DR)
Page 7 says the adventure however (bizarrely) actually takes place between 1368 and 1369.
Page 15 says the adventure takes place in 1369.

My party is ready to play something after LMOP. How easy is this to scale up to level 5? I could just use the DMG to increase the statblocks for the creatures I guess?

No, I went with Call from the Deep. I still have this earmarked for a future group as it seems like a cool campaign

Greatly enjoyed this book. I use it in conjunction with Decent into Avernus.

The adventures sets Boldurs gate as a great city to adventure in and combat the red wizards of THAY. and any potential cult members of Baal and Bane.

Great layout great history overall I rate this the FIRST 5 out of 5 dragon ampersands.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
