The Hamhocks Slaughterhouse was a massive compound composed of a number of animal pens, knackeries and butcheries in the Stonyeyes district of Baldur's Gate.[1][2][note 1]

The establishment had a mixed relationship with the surrounding neighborhood. While their location was convenient to local butchers, the odor drove away the animals of the herders and wranglers.[1]


As expected, Hamhocks was covered in the stench of animal blood.[1]


Some time around the Year of Three Ships Sailing, 1492 DR, the owner of Hamhocks Slaughterhouse was killed by members of the Cult of the Dead Three and supplanted by their leader, Pasque Enrial. The group began to use the slaughterhouse as their headquarters, while committing horrific murders around the city.[1]



  1. The Murder in Baldur's Gate Dungeon Master's screen shows the slaughterhouse as being in the middle of the Sow's Foot district, but the more recent Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus explicitly states it is in Stonyeyes.
