|Baldur's Gate is a series of fantasy computer role-playing games set in the "Forgotten Realms" Dungeons & Dragons game world. 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.

An excellent and free program to crop pictures for your own portraits for use with Baldur's Gate (or other Infinity Engine games) is the FastStone Image Viewer. It includes a crop tool that allows you to specify a size, and move a wireframe around on the image so you can see what you are cropping. Batch processing and lossless conversion to JPEG is also available.
