The Risen Road is a long stretch of road that connects Elturel and Baldur's Gate. It runs parallel to the River Chionthar, and serves as an alternate route of trade. A section of the Risen Road serves as a location in the Wilderness in Act One of Baldur's Gate 3, covering an area including a Tollhouse, a cave entrance, and the road south of the inn Waukeen's Rest.

The Road is found north of the Blighted Village, and can be accessed by jumping across the broken bridge to the north. Alternatively, this location can also be reached by climbing a ladder in the Secluded Chamber and descending down the cliff to the west.

... those who seek to journey to the coast from the interior regions lying to the east will typically seek out the Risen Road. Running parallel to the River Chionthar, the Risen Road provides an overland route all the way from Elturel to Baldur's Gate, and has proven tempting to travellers seeking an alternate to the river barges that sail the Chionthar.

Toll House[edit | edit source]

The abandoned Toll House

The Toll House was once used to collect tolls from travelers but has since been abandoned due to the road's dangerous conditions. Anders and his allies, who are on the search for Karlach, can be found both inside and outside the Toll House.

Basement[edit | edit source]

The Toll House's basement can be accessed by using a trap door located in the same room as Anders, on the ground level. There is a locked door and a dead toll collector in the basement. The locked door can be opened by either destroying it, or by using the Toll Collector's Key, found to the side of the road going south from the Toll House X: 104 Y: 523. It cannot be lockpicked.

Past the door are several rooms with trap vents that can release poison clouds. In the end room are two stone thrones. Sit on or place items on both at the same time to reveal a hidden treasury that contains a Greataxe +1 and Gloves of Heroism as well as several mundane weapons. This room is also trapped.

Located at X: 40 Y: 628 in The Risen Road is a cave with two travelers holding out against attacking Gnolls. They are transporting a locked Caravan Strongbox, which contains the Iron Flask.

If conversation with Rugan goes favorably, he will tell the player the password to enter the Zhentarim Basement located in Waukeen's Rest.

If Rugan survives and the player allows him to leave, the next time the player returns to the cave, the Caravan Strongbox will be gone and Rugan and Olly will have moved to the Zhentarim Basement.
