The Counting House was the center of trade and business in Baldur's Gate,[1] serving as both a bank and establishment that facilitated the exchange of various currencies.[2]

It was located on the waterfront of The Steeps, overlooking Gray Harbor.[3]


The Counting House was a fortress-like building with dense walls. Its top two floors were entirely windowless.[2]

The seemingly impenetrable structure descended deep beneath the streets of Baldur's Gate. Its subterranean, cylindrical floors served as vaults that stored the shared wealth of many Baldurian patriar families. Stone golems that served as sentries and guardians for these riches, patrolling the Counting House's deepest corridors.[2]
