Minsc

Minsc is a human man, ranger, and famous adventurer. Originally from Rasheman in the Unapproachable East, he has been on many adventures throughout the 14th and 15th centuries DR, mostly around the city of Baldur's Gate. His most trusted companion is the miniature giant space hamster named Boo, who rarely leaves his side.

Personal history

During his youth, Minsc served as the bodyguard of the young witch Dynaheir. In 1368 DR, the two became embroiled in the events of the Iron Crisis and Shining Crusade as part of the adventuring party of Abdel Adrian, Hero of Baldur's Gate. However, shortly after, the group was captured and placed in a dungeon beneath the city of Athkatla. During this time, Dynaheir was killed, which devastated Minsc. Following the events in Athkatla and its surrounding region, Minsc vanished from the Sword Coast.

In 1409 DR, a merchant in Baldur's Gate commissioned a statue of Minsc, who was by this time known as the 'Beloved Ranger'. The statue was placed in the Wide and remained there for several decades. Unbeknownst to everyone, the statue was in fact the real Minsc and Boo, petrified by magic. In 1489 DR, the elven sorceress Delina accidentally miscast a spell due to wild magic, freeing Minsc and Boo from their stony prison (a new statue was erected in 1492 DR). Minsc, Boo, and Delina eventually joined up with the thieves Shandie and Krydle, as well as the cleric of Kelemvor Nerys to be known as the Heroes of Baldur's Gate.

The group has since ventured through the mists of Barovia, rescued a dragon near Fireshear, cured Nerys of lycanthropy in Baldur's Gate, and faced down Zariel in Avernus. It was in Avernus that Minsc was thrown into the River Styx, losing all of his memories. Minsc has regained some of his sense of purpose thanks to his party, but is yet to recover his memories.

Reckless. At the start of his turn, Minsc can gain advantage on all melee weapon attack rolls during that turn, but attack rolls against him have advantage until the start of his next turn.

Go for the eyes Boo! As a bonus action, Minsc can talk to Boo and gain the inspiration to go into a berserker fury. While in this berserking fury Minsc gains the following advantages:

  • Minsc has advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws.
  • Minsc gains a +4 bonus to the damage rolls when using a melee weapon.
  • Minsc has resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.
  • Minsc can make a single melee weapon attack as a bonus action on each of his turns.
  • Minsc can’t be charmed or frightened while raging. If Minsc is charmed or frightened when he enters his berserking fury, the effect is suspended for the duration of the rage
  • If Minsc drops to 0 hit points while in a berserking fury and doesn’t die outright, he can make a DC 10 Constitution saving throw. If he succeeds, he drops to 1 hit point instead. Each time he uses this feature after the first, the DC increases by 5. After 24 hours, the DC resets to 10.
