Several Baldur's Gate novels have been written. Philip Athans, editor of the Forgotten Realms novel line, wrote the first two novels in the Baldur's Gate trilogy based on the storylines of the computer game series. The last was written by Drew Karpyshyn. The novels follow the bare basics of the original stories, but, as novels with linear and not very complex storylines, avoid several of the games' numerous subplots and only include a few of the NPCs. The Bhaalspawn main character is named Abdel Adrian in the novels.

  1. Baldur's Gate (1999)
  2. Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn (2000)
  3. Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal (2001)

The novels are often criticized by fans of the series for being inaccurate to the games' original story and spirit, as well as for leaving out or killing off many well-loved NPCs.
