Below can be found a little information about the site, the awards we have won and some logos for linking, if desired.

Site History

Planet Baldur's Gate began on the GameSpy Network as Baldur's Gate Chronicles in February 1998. The site was created by Leviticus and Zarth as a companion to Dark Reign Chronicles, also on the Network. The new design that Leviticus came up with in May of that year was very recognizable and unique. Silverdawn starting helping with the site in May 1998 and by October was the site director and continues to be to this day. Building on its Baldur's Gate base, the site has covered all the Infinity engine game: Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, Tales of the Sword Coast and Baldur's Gate II. MageDragon joined in March 2000 and has taken over the daily news and also some content development.
