    Notice that Baldur's Gate is mentioned earlier. The misspelling might as well be intended :)

    I guess they need to own that name, too, to protect themselves from imitators.

    Also included are Bladder's Gate, Blade's Gate, and Boulder's Gait.

    It's important to cover your bases. ;)

    Bladder's Gate... that sounds like a messy surgery.

    I wonder if this will result in a legal battle between Beamdog and the government of Norway:
    https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balders_gate_(Oslo)
    (Balder, as you probably know, is a god from Norse mythology, and "gate" is the Norwegian word for "street".. this I know from my innate ability as a Swede to read other Scandinavian languages in a half-assed way)

    On another note, in the book "Acupuncture Revisited: Clinical Acuology" by I-Yen Yang(2005), the phrase "Bladder's Wind Gate" is used.

    I think it will only turn into a real problem and legal issues if the name would be used for something akin to a game, thereby creating a chance for confusion.
