The PDF file will contain a code you will have to enter.


Click the GAMEPLAY tab


Input your code in the REDEEM CODE section
Kael's Axe and Fire Horn - Adventurer's Guild
These items are in the Adventuer's Guild

Kaels Axe

When you enter the Guild look to your left and its on the wall

Fire Horn
Go upstairs and its on the middle pillar

Brian Bardic's Booty - Adventurer's Guild
Brian Bardic's Booty

In the Adventurer's Guild go downstairs

Brian Bardic Skin - Character Creation
The BrianBardic skin is available during the character creation screen. In order to use the skin you must

Archetype = BARD (duh!!)
Culture = Any of the 4 HUMAN races
Customize = Select this portrait and you will get one of these 3 skins based on the Culture selected





Yeah the Oulander one kinda really similar the Baed one
Red Boots
This DLC is not in the Adventurer's Guild

You'll need to exit the guild, proceed north, then go slightly west and loop back south. You'll likely remember this large open square where you had to avoid the guards your first time

You see those skeletons in the cage.

One of those poor souls is wearing the Red Boots

The Axe is on the wall but I cant pick it up, it only highlights if you play Jarnels Eyes but you cant interact with it, same with the boots and the chest.
Were there changes on the Director's Cut Version? Why cant I get those items? Inxlie states that they are free:

Hey All,
I'm in the Baedish Lowlands listening to some awesome soundtracks. I purchased the Platinum edition that came with the soundtrack option but the songs I'm hearing in game now aren't in my soundtrack mp3 list. I've noticed songs in other areas that also aren't included. What gives?

May you live a long time. I was looking all over for a screenshot of the Bardic Brian skins and it was driving me crazy. THANK YOU for clearly posting the skin options for Bardic Brian and having the best walk throughs of where the items are, WITH SCREENSHOTS!

I wish I could send you a nice bottle of a single malt whisky. THANK YOU!

I have tried multiple times to enter the code on different saves and still not working for me...not sure what I am doing wrong since it seemsfairly straight forward. Will try again tonight-otherwise just keep playing without them. Probably not any better than what I have now anyway.

If you dont want to discuss it here, or in the BT4 forums then I'm not super interested in adding random people

Ok thanks for the response! I just figured out that Steam owners need to get the code from the game files.. I just activated it and working fine !!

@lordfess while in your existing save, try to re-register the DLC codes

I bought the Premium Edition on Steam. All the DLC found in The Old Adventurer's Guild and the boots on the burned corpse in the square do not highlite and cannot be clicked on with my mouse.Is there something I am missing here or is this a bug ?
