Baldur’s Gate 3: Rescue the Trapped Man Guide One of the quests that you can encounter in this game is Rescue the Trapped Man, which involves saving a man and his wife from a burning building. In this blog post, I will guide you through the steps to complete this quest and find the hidden dowry.
How to Start the Quest
You can start this quest by visiting Waukeen’s Rest, a manor located northwest of the Blighted Village. You can reach this place by following the road that leads to the Goblin Camp, or by using the fast travel point near the Druid Grove. Once you arrive at Waukeen’s Rest, you will see a group of goblins and paladins fighting outside the manor. You can choose to join the fight or sneak past them.
How to Rescue the Trapped Man
The trapped man is named Benryn, and he is located on the second floor of the west building of the manor. To reach him, you need to enter the building through the broken door on the ground floor. You will see a staircase leading up to the second floor, where you will find another broken door blocking your way. You need to break this door by attacking it with ranged or melee weapons. Be careful, as there will be an explosion when you do so.
Once you break the door, you will see Benryn lying under a wooden beam in a room that is on fire. You need to act quickly, as the fire will spread and damage you and Benryn. To save him, you need to interact with the splintered beams and pass either a Strength or an Investigation check. The Strength check requires you to lift the beam with brute force, while the Investigation check requires you to find leverage to shift the beam. The Strength check has a lower difficulty (DC 10) than the Investigation check (DC 15), so it might be easier to pass.
If you succeed in saving Benryn, he will thank you and ask you to find his wife Miri, who is trapped in another building. If you fail to save him, he will die and you will not be able to complete the quest.
How to Find Miri and the Dowry
Miri is located on the second floor of the east building of the manor. To reach her, you need to enter the building through the door on the ground floor. You will see a staircase leading up to the second floor, where you will find Miri’s body lying on a bed. Unfortunately, she is already dead and there is nothing you can do to save her.
However, you can still learn some information from her by using the Speak with Dead spell, which allows you to communicate with corpses for a limited time. You can learn this spell from Gale, one of your companions, or from a scroll that you can find in various locations. To cast this spell, you need to have Miri’s body in your line of sight and select it as your target.
When you speak with Miri, she will tell you that she hid their dowry in a barn behind their house. She will also tell you that she loves Benryn and that she hopes he is safe.
The dowry is located in a barn that is behind the main building of the manor. To reach it, you need to go around the back of the manor and look for a haystack inside the barn. If you interact with it, you will reveal a gilded chest that contains the dowry.
How to Complete the Quest
Once you have found Miri and the dowry, you need to return to Benryn and tell him what happened. He will be devastated by his wife’s death and ask you to take him to her body. You can choose to do so or not.
If you take him to Miri’s body, he will mourn her and thank you for your help. He will then give you his ring as a reward and tell you that he will bury his wife and leave this place.
If you do not take him to Miri’s body, he will still thank you for your help and give you his ring as a reward. He will then ask you to leave him alone.
Either way, this will complete the quest and earn you some experience points.
