Baccarat is the home of Mr. Golding, who runs the Casino, one of the descendants of the Seven Sages, and the adoptive father of Cash and Carrie. The party journeys here on the trail of Dhoulmagus. The casino closes due to the death of Golding, but can be reopened later either by helping Cash and Carrie, or will reopen by itself later in the game.
