Zevlor, the tiefling you encounter in the Druid’s village in Act 1, has been particularly noticed by players of both Magic: The Gathering and the video game.

Are Baldur’s Gate 3 and Magic: The Gathering set in the same Universe?

The answer is complex. Technically, Baldur’s Gate is situated in the Forgotten Realms segment of Dungeons and Dragons, which is one amongst several dimensions, known as planes, existing within the realm of Dungeons and Dragons.

In Magic: The Gathering, you play as a 'planeswalker', a being with the ability to travel back and forth amongst these different realities, and the world of Baldur’s Gate 3 is one of these realities.

Baldur’s Gate 3 was devised by Larian Studio, with the Wizards of the Coast, who are responsible for Magic: The Gathering, being closely consulted during the development process as they own the license for Dungeons and Dragons.
