The mod adds a new NPC – a Gnoll Bruiser, a former bandit, who worked for Garclax, a gnoll you may also encounter in the original game during the investigation of the Bandit Camp. Bristlelick is a frontline warrior of neutral character. He enjoys battle, a fine meal, and seeks vengeance for the death of his trusted companion, Bull-Tall.
The mod includes a series of timed talks, some scenery talks, and a set of Bristle’s personal items. To make him fit well into the concept, he also received his very own kit.
The NPC may join your party near the rocky road on the Bandit Camp area (AR1900). In Siege of Dragonspear, he may join the team near the first camp (BD1000).


As with any other WeiDU mod, unpack the archive to your main BGEE location and run Setup-Bristlelick.exe. Once the WeiDU installer is launched, follow the instruction in the WeiDU window. Start a new game, or use a saved game from before leaving the Candlekeep area. The mod updates one of the main early game areas.
The mod requires an EE version of the engine to work. To enjoy the full story, remember to also include Siege of Dragonspear. If you do so and you are a Steam user, remember to use modmerge or DLC Merger.
