Taman is an NPC and potential Enemy in Baldur's Gate 3. Taman can be found at the Chapel Entrance. Taman is arguing with Gimblebock.

He is part of a grave robbing band, consisting of nine other members (Gimblebock, Quelenna, Warryn, Andorn, Torgga, Haseid, Barton, Mari, and Cefrey). They are currently in the process of looting the Dank Crypt but aren't having much success. As you approach, you can hear Gimbelbock mention that while they are trying to enter the Dank Crypt, "Mari and Barton have been trying to break in for days."

If you choose a peaceful option, he does not appear later in the game. This encounter appears to exist as a tutorial situation for the player.

Dialogue Options

As you get near to the chapel entrance, you will find Taman arguing with Gimbleblock. The gnome will start talking to you. He tells you that it's their ship to explore. Here you can attempt some checks to convince them or simple attack them to start combat.

  1. I mean no harm - I'm just looking around.
  2. [PERSUASION] That ship is full of monsters. I wouldn't go near it.
  3. [DECEPTION] I think that ship's an invasion force. Run while you can!
  4. [INTIMIDATION] The only thing you own is your life. Leave before I take that, too.
  5. Attack.

Other known available Responses:

  • [STRENGTH] I don't want to hurt you, but provoke me, and I'll keep stabbing long after you're dead.
  • [DARK URGE] I am not a competition. I am annihilation.
  • [WARLOCK] That ship's full of poisonous vapours. Probably demonic. I'd stay away.
  • [BARBARIAN] [INTIMIDATION] Not yours- mine. Leave now.
  • [PALADIN] [INTIMIDATION] Selfish cur - there might be survivors, yet you think only of loot. Leave before I make you leave.
  • [MONK] [INSIGHT] Your loud words hide fear, confusion. Looting that ship will bring you no peace.
  • [GITHYANKI] That is my kin's prize, not yours.
  • [ASTARION ONLY] [INTIMIDATION] Just grin, baring your fangs.
