The last leg of Investigating the Suspicious Toys is not an easy one to complete. Not because it’s difficult (it’s exceedingly straightforward), but because it just doesn’t feel right. Here’s how to investigate Felogyr’s Fireworks in Baldur’s Gate 3.
Baldur’s Gate 3: How to Investigate the Suspicious Toys in Felogyr’s Fireworks
Baldur’s Gate 3 is easily one of my favorite games because of the bevy of options you have to do pretty much anything. Almost every side quest and main mission puts the choice of how you want to resolve the problem in your hands.
Except for investigating Felogyr’s Fireworks. I’m almost certain that this quest is bugged.
There is only one way to complete the final leg of Investigate the Suspicious Toys. And that’s by killing every single person in Felogyr’s Fireworks. No, I’m not kidding. You can’t steal a particular note or assassinate a particular person. You must kill everyone.
This seems wrong on many levels. Even if everyone involved is complicit in some way, it’s such a gross infliction of “justice” that it can completely break immersion. But I’ve explored every option. Currently, there is no way to sabotage the pipes, thus killing those upstairs alone.
Nor does lockpicking your way into the basement and finding its secret room offers another solution. I’ve seen some posit that the smoke powder barrels you find in the basement should be used to accelerate the deaths of everyone, but it still leads down the same path of mass murder.
Likewise, killing only the drows and Chemists who are cooking up the bombs upstairs will lead to no better results. Nor will looting the various letters and keys you’ll find on their bodies. Likewise, examining the motivations and ledgers will offer you no way to bring the bomb makers to justice.
I’m sorry to say, but if you want to complete this quest (and get pretty much nothing for the effort, except for the Counting House Vault Key #5, which can be picked off of a corpse), this is the only option.
But if you do want to feel like you’re the good guy, why not save a child before she’s transformed into a monster?
