Nashkel was a small town on the northern slopes of the Cloud Peaks.[1]


Although formally a part of Amn, Nashkel was separated from the rest of the kingdom by the mountain passes and so was relatively autonomous.

Taverns and inns



Nashkel appeared as a small village with a temple to Helm, an inn, store, and a tavern in the Baldur's Gate game. The village had become important to the whole region because of its proximity to the Nashkel mines where miners were disappearing, which added to the iron crisis. The hero could team up with Minsc and Edwin here. Berrun Ghastkill had a few quests for the adventurer and Volo made an appearance in the Belching Dragon Tavern. This was also where the infamous Noober was encountered.
