Like many large cities, Athkatla has grown up around the mouth of a river. And as is often the case, it has spread along both sides of the river, which then needs to be spanned by one or more bridges.

You don't need a ha'penny to cross the bridge but you will need your wits about you when traveling through this district. While peaceful on the outside, several dangers lurk here.

  1. This is where you arrive in the Bridge District.

  2. The first time you visit the Bridge District, Lieutenent Aegisfield will warn you about the murders that are happening here. This starts the Bridge District Murders quest.

  3. This is where you will find the Fallen Paladins if you're doing the Fallen Paladins quest.

  4. Here is the Balthis Estate. I have been told it was part of a quest involving Haer'Dalis that was removed before the game was released. As it is, the estate serves no purpose in the game.

  5. The first time you pass here, you will witness a few citizens discussing the dead Shadow Thieves on the ground. This is related to the ongoing war between the Shadow Thieves and another guild.

  6. The first time you pass here at night, you will be ambushed by four thugs.

  7. This unmarked house contains a bit of loot, including the Silver Horn of Valhalla.

  8. Here are two unmarked houses. In the one to the right you will find some Clerics hiding. They will be most unhappy to be found, so have your weapons at the ready. They drop a variety of mundane items, plus Bracers of Defense AC 7.

    The trapped chest and cupboard at the back of the room contain a Scroll of Spirit Armor, a Scroll of Breach, a Scroll of Lightning Bolt, a Scroll of Protection from Electricity, 450 GP, a Star Sapphire, a Black Opal, and a Laeral's Tear Necklace.

    The house to the left can be looted for a few mundane items, 3 Potions of Healing, and an Ankheg Shell.

  9. Here you will find Rampah, an old beggar who can help you solve the Bridge District Murders.

  10. Here is Rose Bouquet, a young "lady" selling her "services". She can also help you solve the Bridge District Murders.

  11. Here are two merchants, Bel Dalemark and an unnamed Storekeep. Bel can help you solve the Bridge District Murders. He also sells a variety of mundane weapons and armor. The only magical item he has is Bullets +1.

    The storekeep sells various mundane weapons and armor along with a few more interesting items. Click here for shop inventory.

  12. Here is the entrance to the Five Flagons Inn, which you will visit in connection with a number of quests, or just to rest and recuperate.

    If you have Mazzy in your party, make sure to come by; the landlord is an old friend of hers! The party then gets a pair of Boots of Stealth.

    If you have Haer'Dalis in your party, speak to the landlord to receive a Diamond; a gift from one of Haer'Dalis' numerous former lady friends.

  13. Here is Saerk Farrahd's Estate, which you will only visit if Anomen is in your party and you choose the evil path in the Anomen is Called Home quest, or if you choose the good path and you are romancing him.

  14. Here is the Tanner Shop. You will pay a visit here if you are trying to solve the Bridge District Murders.

  15. If you have initiated the Limited Wish quest, here is where you will meet Vittorio who will get the quest rolling for you.

  16. Here is Delosar's Inn, where you can rest or proceed with the Limited Wish quest.

  17. If you are trying to solve the Buried Alive quest, here is where you'll find Am-Si, who is a member of the gang. Pursue him through the door below when he flees.

    Behind the trapped door just north of Am-Si at (x=1600, y=3350) is the house of the Elemental Lich whom you will need to kill in connection with the Kangaxx quest.

    Behind the trapped door at (x=1800, y=3350) towards the sea is the Twisted Rune. You can't enter unless you have a Rogue Stone in your inventory. Before entering, make sure to save your game and prepare for a difficult battle. You will be facing a Lich, a Beholder, a high-level Mage, a Vampire, and a high-level Thief. Only high-level parties need apply. ;-)

  18. Here you will find Faraji, a street urchin who found one of the latest victims of the Bridge District Murders. He will tell you that the evil witch Mrs. Cragmoon did it! Mrs. Cragmoon can then be found at 21.

  19. Here is a Temple of Helm where you can buy the usual Temple services and a number of other items. Click here for shop inventory.

  20. This derelict house is the hiding place of Neb the Child Killer. You can't enter until you have got a hint from Unger Hilldark in the Copper Coronet, which you will do in connection with the Sir Sarles quest.

  21. If you have spoken with Faraji at 18 in connection with the Bridge District Murders, this is where you can find Mrs. Cragmoon, the elderly lady whom Faradi suspects of being the murderer, and an evil witch to boot! Of course she denies both - and Lieutenant Aegisfield back at 2 will back her up.

    Andre Slupik has notified me that if you turn in Mrs. Cragmoon to Lieutenant Aegisfield for being a witch, she will indeed be gone after a few days, and you will be attacked by a party of her friends at a later time.

    Incidentally, she sells a wide variety of potions. Click here for shop inventory.

    At night you can find a Cutpurse here selling stolen items. Click here for shop inventory. Thanks to André Slupik for notifying me of this shop, which I had managed to miss completely.

  22. Here you will see two men named Shank and Carbos fighting over a girl named Bubbles. Once one of them wins the fight, she then rejects the winner for getting blood on her dress. Shank and Carbos may be old acquaintances if you have played the original Baldur's Gate game.

  23. Here is another exit from the Bridge District.
