Baldur’s Gate 3 has a myriad of children who play an exciting role in the story. While exploring the Shadow Cursed Land, players might run into Oliver, a necro kiddo who wants to play hide and seek. It’s tough for a kid to be out here alone, shadow curse and all that, but Oliver seems fine with his undead daddy, mommy, and doggy. Whenever he spots a passerby, he asks them to play a game of hide and seek that totally doesn’t result in their death. Maybe it’s all his practice with the gith travelers from the north, but he’s good at this game, making him hard to beat.

During the first round, Oliver will cast invisibility and hide behind the wooden cart in front of the house. While hiding, head to his location and succeed at the perception check to find Oliver.

He’ll be angry to have lost at his very own game but will accept a second round as a consolation prize.

During this second round, Oliver will hide once more and have his undead parents and dog look for you around the area. It’s an excellent idea to ungroup the party to avoid having as many visible heads.

While hiding, head inside the house and look around to find Oliver. He’s usually near the door to the left or right at the center. After spotting him, unhide and speak with Oliver to win the second hide-and-seek round.
