Baldur's Gate 3 is an extremely risqué game where every single party member in the game is ready to make advances on you at the slightest chance. Therefore, it probably shouldn't come as a surprise that there is currently a line of risqué body pillows being produced depicting select party members you encounter in the game. Fan favorites like Astarion and Karlach are included in the initial selection, with each pillow featuring a normal and daring design on the front and back.
Halsin is also included, with a rather standard design on the front. However, when you flip the pillowcase, you'll find Halsin in his bear form, which is a mischievous reference to the infamous bear romance scene in the game that has caused quite a stir on social media. A bear body pillow is probably one of the more peculiar pieces of Baldur's Gate 3 merchandise you'll find out there, but considering the nature of the actual game, it shouldn't be too surprising.
If you're interested in checking out these body pillows (hey, I'm not the one judging), you can visit artist Hanna Schroy's online shop where you can purchase them. Currently, only Karlach, Astarion, and Halsin are available to secure now, but Schroy has already been inundated with requests to create the rest of the cast as well. In fact, they have already confirmed that they are working on Lae'zal and Gale pillows, thanks to "some generous patrons of the arts." Never underestimate the power of excited Baldur's Gate 3 fans.
Schroy has also mentioned several times that they are open to commissions. So, if you're a disappointed Shadowheart or Wyll fan and want a body pillow, you can always give them some money to make your dream come true.
In other Baldur's Gate 3 news, we recently spoke with Devora Wilde, the actress behind Lae'zel, at WASD. She shared insights about her portrayal of the Githyanki warrior and some challenges that came with the role. According to Wilde, one of the major difficulties in playing Lae'zel was the Githyanki language. She had to learn new words in a completely unfamiliar language and naturally incorporate them into her sentences. However, she is very willing to teach the language to others and even suggests offering a Githyanki course on Duolingo if the app is interested.
You can watch our entire interview with Wilde, conducted by the managing editor for Guides, Meg Pellicio, in the above embedded video and then go to Duolingo and urge them to add the Githyanki update as soon as possible.
