Related quests Edit

Like most gnomes, Glint has a very large family. His personal quest throughout the game is to track down a handful of his kinsmen and -women who live in the area, to make sure they are okay. Have Glint in party when talking to any of them:

  1. Hoach Randymonk, he's in Bridgefort in Chapter 9, you must have retrieved the Wardstone from the ruined Temple of Bhaal in Forest of Wyrms and use it on the magical runes at the east of the Boareskyr Bridge map to gain access to the fort.
  2. Pritchard Gardnerson, found in the center of Coalition Camp in Chapter 10, this part of the quest is also related to another quest Damius and Sempack give you. After the unpleasant conversion with him, Glint will ask you to teach him a lesson, force attack him (with a reputation loss of -2), when his health becomes critical Glint will tell you to stop and you'll receive his Pritchard's Family Stiletto, now go inform Damius and Sempack that you have dealt with Pritchard for some minor rewards.
  3. Barkersdottir (ghost), she's in the same cave where you'll find Ettin Club for Ettin Ghost's quest in Underground River caverns in Chapter 10.
  4. Rhonda Swiftfootsdottir, found in upper side of Warrens access from the Underground River caverns in Chapter 10, she’ll let Betror and Einer lift the machine for you if you haven’t already convinced them so you may now go to the Dragonspear Castle Basement.

You won't receive any reward for finding all his relatives.

You’ll trigger a series of unexpected events after you have placed the Barrel of Bwoosh! in
the Underground River or have met Hephernaan in the Dragonspear Castle Basement: all crusaders
in the Underground River will become hostile, and the next time you return to the
Coalition Camp, you won’t be able to freely explore the Dead Man's Pass otherwise the
Dragonspear Castle Courtyard will also become inaccessible, plus once you go to the Coalition
Camp after the event in the Pass, you’ll be forced to proceed to Chapter 11, rendering all
related sidequests incomplete-able.

In-game biographyEdit

When asked about his past, GLINT GARDNERSONSON tends to use three words where one will do and constantly breaks off on tangents as he speaks. Eventually, you learn that he comes from a large family and has always been seen as something of a troublemaker. He gained his nickname, "Three-Eyes," when his exasperated mother exclaimed that she needed three eyes to keep watch on him.
Glint happily expounds on his many adventures since leaving home; it's difficult to tell where reality ends and exaggeration begins. Though Glint initially ventured from Baldur's Gate in search of several missing relatives, he seems to have been caught up in the mission of ending Caelar's crusade.

Dialogues Edit

Mm, yes, that should do it... What? Oh, <CHARNAME>! I didn't see you there. Well, I did; obviously, I did; I'm talking to you; I must have. But it took me a while. Sorry, what were we talking about?
My name? Oh right, right, my name. I'm Glint. Glint "Three-Eyes" Gardnersonson. Pleased to meet you.
Ah, yes. Yes. An old nickname. That's how many eyes Mum said she had to keep on me to make sure I stayed out of trouble. Turns out she really needed four eyes, but that—that's a long story.
Family's very important to the Gardnersonsons. I've a number of relatives 'twixt Baldur's Gate and Waterdeep. Mum wanted me to check on them and make sure they're all right.
That may be the first time in history someone's considered anything my mother wanted reasonable.
Spoken like someone who's never had to deal with my mother. I should be so lucky. Aw, nah, I didn't mean that. She's lovely, really. She's just... insistent. Like an avalanche or a tidal wave.
While I will attempt to get the scroll AND stay alive. Not necessarily in that order.


  • Glint's character portrait is based on one of the lead writers of the game, Andrew Foley.
  • He is the only exclusively male gay companion in the series.
