James Ohlen is the lead designer of BioWare’s two Baldur’s Gate games, and now he is the head of Archetype Entertainment, an in-house studio that develops story-driven video games for Wizards of the Coast.

Minsc & Boo’s Journal of Villainy contains the writing of characters in the original game based on D&D’s 5th edition statistics. Some are potential patrons of your character, and some are opponents.

Although the recent D&D additions avoid too much detail, make parts obscure, and allow players to fill in the blanks themselves, this book is full of details. Each city has rules and prices for purchasing magic items, and the statistics block of monsters has a complete list of spells. These things will come in handy for many players-the statistics of high-level villains such as Mephistopheles and Barr will also come in handy-but some character biographies contain some surprises.
