Svef is a drug in Pillars of Eternity.

Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Svef can be traced back to provisioners in the Vailian Republics, where the markets for the plant in question enjoy rapidly rising demand. Most commonly chewed or inhaled, svef is infamous for the near-catatonic state in which it often places its adherents. Those who use it claim that the drug gives them a sense of urgency and meaning, lost when the effects fade. More colorful accounts claim that the drug allows one to look within themselves and witness the sight of their own soul.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

  • Common loot from bandits and thugs.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The following description of Svef was given in an update to the game's Kickstarter campaign[1]:
Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Svef is the Aedyran name for a potent narcotic produced from the berries of small shrub that grows in the dry, distant mountains of Tal Kness. Svef produces hallucinations and, according to some, allows users to actually see their own soul. The narcotic was introduced to the Aedyr long ago, but it is used more frequently in the Dyrwood due to its heavy trafficking by Vailian merchants.
