Baldur's Gate 3 is out now in Early Access, and it's already doing very well. Players are enjoying digging into the game's huge map and ticking off its many quests, but there's one that most players will definitely miss--because it's hidden in the opening user agreement.

As reported by PC Gamer, if you read through the full EULA, you'll encounter a bit of text asking you to make a submission to Larian for entry into the "Guild of Great Genius," an exclusive club.

"Upon accepting this Pact, you take on an additional quest to submit to Larian one (1) recording of a chant, song, text, poem or interpretive dance performed by you and extolling your interest in the Forgotten Realms," the EULA reads.

Beware, though, you need to submit within "the first three winters" of agreeing to the terms of the EULA, otherwise you won't be eligible.

Whatever you send Larian, they'll also retain the rights to use it as they see fit: "You hereby grant Larian Studios a worldwide, perpetual, and royalty-free license to share such recordings through Larian Studios' social media channels."

If you want to submit something to Larian and join their club, there's contact information available on the studio's website.
