Pillars of Eternity Wiki

In response to patch v1. to Pillars of Eternity (June 6, 2024), the random loot tables shown on the wiki have been updated. These changes may take time to propegate.

As a result, random loot data is no longer accurate to old versions of the game, including all console ports. We'll be working to provide a mechanism to switch between pre-patch and post-patch loot for console players.

This article is about the different cultures of Eora. For cultures in character creation, see Culture and background.

Cultures are created by societies across Eora, reflecting their values, goals, and societal norms.

Overview[ | ]

The cultures of Eora are historically peopled by a mixture of diverse racial backgrounds. This means that characters cannot be measured against any predetermined notions about dwarves, elves, or other familiar figures. A dwarf from the Vailian Republic, for example, might have more in common with a Vailian elf than he or she would with a dwarf of the Deadfire archipelago. While creating a character, and encountering others along the way, it is more important than ever to consider the innate complexities of personal history and heritage.
