Saw this today. Heroes of Baldur's Gate. Has a print version available.

Set in 1368/1369...

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."
Alaundo of Candlekeep

Purchased the PDF, waiting on an update in the comments section before ordering the Hardcopy. There were apparently a few typos that need correcting, but nothing earth shattering.
I like it. I haven't reviewed the adventure in detail, mostly because I don't run adventures, just farm them for ideas, but the book gives an excellent framework to run a 5e adaptation of the Bhallspawn saga.

Any reviews of this product? Did the an update happen. I would like to buy the hard copy but its a bit steep to buy blindly and would be annoying if it came with typos.

Would love to hear back from people who have even skimmed through it.

The party come to a town befallen by hysteria

Rogue: So what's in the general store?
DM: What are you looking for?
Rogue: Whatevers in the store.
DM: Like what?
Rogue: Everything.
DM: There is a lot of stuff.
Rogue: Is there a cart outside?
DM: (rolls) Yes.
Rogue: We'll take it all, we may need it for the greater good.

It went PDF only for awhile while they made the corrections. I bought a hardcopy as soon as it came available again and I'm happy with it. I only have one tiny complaint. First, it's taller than the official 5e books, so while the graphics match my other 5e books spines on the shelf, it's about 1/8th of an inch taller and doesn't stand out.
Content wise, I love that is gives me some loose mechanics to run a tabletop version of the Bhaalspawn saga if I choose to, and the adventure looks fun to run, and I'm hoping to talk my players into trying it out.
That said, I'll readily admit I'm not very picky on published adventures. Most of the time, I make my own material up on the fly, so if there's any lack of plot hooks or story flaws, I'm not the one to look to for critique.

Cool, I'd rather get both the hard copy and the digital one, the 1/8" is an odd hiccup but not a deal breaker.

A few more questions. Any nice maps? Over world or individual buildings? How about Beregost is it detailed at all?

There are several beautiful maps, some of which you can see here and here. Beregost isn't really covered in detail. Most of the mapped adventure sites are in the Gate, the Cloakwood Mines, and the Wood of Sharp Teeth.

EDIT: while I'm at it, here's links to the art in the book, for your judgement.

Thank you very much. You have been very helpful. It is likely I will be picking up the hardcopy & the digital one when I get some spare cash.
