The Fields of the Dead are the rolling hills east of Baldur's Gate between the Winding Water and the River Chionthar on the Sword Coast.[1]

Kings Strohm IV and Samyte of Tethyr were buried here.[2]


Centuries ago (before the founding of Amn) this land was a favored battleground for control of the lands north of Calimshan. Bones still litter the field and cairns of the dead are everywhere. Now used for farming and ranching, plows occasionally turn up skeletons in rusting armor, weapons, and other detritus.[1]

In 1264 DR, thieves stole the Shield of Silvam and the Royal Masque Blades from the tombs.[2]
