Notable loot[edit | edit source]

  • Keepsake Ring - Found in the basement, in the middle of the room with the rats.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The tabletop D&D adventure Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus includes a description of the Elfsong Tavern, and explains the origin of its name: the tavern is haunted by the spirit of a long-dead female Elf who occasionally serenades the patrons. This is likely the voice heard singing Song of Balduran in the "camp" area upstairs.
  • The lyrics of the song, sung by Mariya Anastasova , which hint at the plot of Baldur's Gate 3 and the ultimate fate of Balduran, can be found in a book in a desk in the rented rooms upstairs.
  • When approaching Stelmane's room on the upper floor, The Emperor The Emperor will have the following ambient commentary: "Stelmane's parlour - a place to receive clients and informants. I wonder if it's as I remember it."
