Tyris Flare NPC

A Gibberlings Three Mod
Author: Grim Squeaker

Version 6 - Check for the most recent version

Overview

Meet Tyris Flare, a red-haired amazon who can kick ass and hurl fire!

Sound familiar? That's because I decided to have a nostalgia trip and recreate a character from ye olde Golden Axe computer games that were released on the Sega Mega Drive (or Genesis in America) and arcade machines in the 90s. You may also have seen her recently in Golden Axe: Beast Master, though my interpretation of the character is from the older games.

How does she end up in Baldur's Gate II? You'll have to play to find out!

Once in your party, Tyris will banter with all BioWare NPCs and can be romanced by any human/elf/half-elf male PC. Enjoy!

Compatibility

This mod is designed to work with Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn with or without the Throne of Bhaal expansion pack. The mod should be compatible with other WeiDU mods.

Installation

Windows
Tyris Flare is packaged and installed with WeiDU and is distributed as a self-extracting archive. To install, simply double-click the archive and follow the instructions on screen.

Alternatively the files can be extracted from the archive using WinRAR. If properly extracted, you should have a TyrisFlare folder and Setup-TyrisFlare.exe in your BG2 folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-TyrisFlare.exe and follow the instructions on screen.

Please run Setup-TyrisFlare.exe in your BG2 folder to reinstall, uninstall or otherwise change components.

Contents

The mod contains several components that can be installed independently of one another.

Tyris Flare NPC

This is the main component that will add Tyris Flare to your Shadows of Amn or Throne of Bhaal game. She can be found in the Umar Hills, vaguely near the cave.

Alternate Portraits
Requires Tyris Flare NPC

This multiple-choice component allows you to optionally install one of six alternate portraits for Tyris.

Enormous thanks to my three testers/proofreaders: Jordoo, Kabuki and KIrving. Without them the writing in this mod would be... not so good.
