Murder in Baldur's Gate
The Flaming Fists is a mercenary company based in the city of Baldur’s Gate on the Sword Coast, where its members serve as the city guards.They also work outside the city; their sphere of influence extends just south of Beregost but stopping before Nashkel.
The Flaming Fist Mercenary Company, as it was then called, was founded around 1345 DR by Eltan, a formidable fighter and Grand Duke of Baldur’s Gate.
While the Fist’s base of operations is in the city of Baldur’s Gate, they have other forts and establishments in Anchorome, Chult and Tethyr. The latter of which has proven to be a source for recent hires by Duke Eltan during their decades-long civil war.
By 1479 DR the Flaming Fists had changed from a mercenary group to the police and military force of Baldur’s Gate.
