|Baldur's Gate is a series of fantasy computer role-playing games set in the "Forgotten Realms" Dungeons & Dragons game world. It uses the Infinity Engine and Dungeons and Dragons game rules. The complete story arc is covered by Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, and the Throne of Bhaal expansion. The Tales of the Sword Coast expansion reveals additional areas but is not plot-critical.
||The Dungeon Siege II fantasy game art on this page has screenshots of the Knotted Shamber boss monster. Vai'kesh (dark elf) experiments with the dark magics of the Aegis of Death formed many new and horrible creatures. Their greatest crime, though, was stealing the very life essence of the Vai'lutra Forest itself to create one creature more powerful than the rest: the Knotted Shambler. Formed from the very trees themselves, the Shambler is still deeply connected to nature and the life of the forest. As a result, the Shambler uses the power of nature to protect and hide itself, covering itself in leaves that make it impenetrable to attack. Even the Vai'kesh Prophet is reluctant to enter the areas the Shambler is known to haunt.
