Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire – Godlike

9 May 2018, Wednesday, 14:12:57


The godlike are children of the kith (“civilized” races) who have been blessed with physical aspects associated with the gods (though some do not consider it a blessing). These aspects may take many forms and often come with mystical powers. Aberrant head shapes are typical, and godlike are unable to wear protective headgear as it is near impossible to find anything that fits. Because of their unusual nature and their inability to reproduce, godlike are often viewed with fear
and wonder.

Attribute Bonuses: +1 Dexterity, +1 Intellect



Death Godlike

Death Godlike are the most distrusted of their kind. Strange growths cover their eyes – or, in some cases, entire face – giving them a sinister appearance.


The growths are transparent for the Godlike but opaque from the outside, hiding their features. Death Godlike are commonly killed at birth because many cultures consider them to be harbingers of doom.


Death godlike seem to have an innate sense for the vulnerability of their enemies as death approaches. Against all targets that are Near Death, death godlike gain increased damage.



Fire Godlike

The bodies of Fire Godlike often resemble hot metal, burnt wood, or stone, with harmless flames that erupt from the cracks in their skin. Fire Godlike are objects of both reverence and fear in the Deadfire Archipelago. Many locals believe they have the power to awaken volcanoes – or that killing one will cause a volcano to awaken. In the Dyrwood, Fire Godlike are often seen as a sign of the blessing of Magran, goddess of war and fire.


When fire godlike are Bloodied or Near Death, their bodies harden, granting additional Armor Rating, and their souls lash out at attackers, causing Burn damage to anyone who hits them in melee.



Nature Godlike

Nature Godlike appear to be a fusion of human and animal features, often covered by plants, moss, or fungi. This has led to the common stigma that they are diseased, and many are killed at birth because of it. Many druidic orders have a keen interest in Nature Godlike because of the general curiosity as to how souls occupy animals, plants, and stones.


The souls of nature godlike respond powerfully to Inspiration. While a nature godlike is under the effects of any Might, Constitution, or Dexterity Inspiration they benefit from an increased Power Level.



Moon Godlike

Moon Godlike are the most tolerated of the godlike. While their skin tone and a large moon-like growth on their foreheads may be strange to some, their appearances are generally considered more palatable by the other kith. Sailors have many beliefs about moon godlike and their propensity to bring luck, though there is little agreement as to what kind of luck they tend to bring. The souls of all moon godlike are connected to reserves of healing energy. In combat, the first time a moon godlike is Hurt, Bloodied, or Near Death, they will automatically generate a wave of healing around themselves.
