Pillars of Eternity Wiki

The Goose and Fox is a tavern in Copperlane, Defiance Bay. It is owned by Bishop.


The Goose and Fox was founded in the early days of Dyrwoodan independence by a traveling scholar named Erol of Levi. He wanted a place where kith of all backgrounds could gather and hash out the issues facing their new country. It didn't take long for the place to fill up. Brackenbury aristocrats argued with dock workers from the Gift while soldiers wrangled with politicians. Dyrwoodans have never been known to turn down an argument. Soon, kith were coming from the farms and settlements, attracting enough patrons that it rivaled The Salty Mast.

However, no free speech is free from consequences. Although Erol prided himself on encouraging fair-mindedness and civil debate, he eventually found himself on the wrong side of an argument with the wrong thayn. His disappearance a few days later is speculated to be either the work of the thayn or Erol realizing that discretion is the better part of valor and skipping town.

Now it's the domain of Bishop, a former scholar of Berath and recovered alcoholic who ensures everyone plays fair with his intimidating physique.

Behind the scenes[]

  • This area contains developer commentary:
Since this inn belongs to a world traveller we made sure to decorate it with items from all over the different regions of the game. This included the stuffed Stelgaer in the corner that we lovingly named "Duke Bitey von Levi". Sadly, the dukes name did not make it into the final game, but he lives on in our hearts.
