The Salty Mast is the main inn and a brothel in Ondra's Gift in Pillars of Eternity.

Background[edit | edit source]

One of the most popular destinations in the entire Defiance Bay, The Salty Mast offers something for the body as well as... Well, it's all body, but it's the right kind of body.

Points of interest[edit | edit source]

  • This is a two-story location. The lower level is generally accessible and contains the bar, kitchen, and offices, as well as a plethora of characters.
  • On the second floor of the brothel, there is a members-only lounge of a group calling themselves the "Club of Refined and Prestigious Gentlemen". A bouncer, Becke Ordoe, blocks the door. In order to gain entrance peacefully, talk to the Older Drunkard on the first floor. Inside the lounge you can meet two members of the club, Jaesun and the merchant Vincent Dwellier.

Companion reactions[edit | edit source]

Some companions have a special comment upon entering the Mast:

  • Aloth: "Over-fried cod, watered ale, and prostitution. A bastion of Dyrwoodan culture."
  • Sagani: "Visit new lands, see the sights. I do love travel."
  • Kana Rua: "I hope you aren't expecting to find the Leaden Key in here."
  • Hiravias: "I dare you to ask them how much it would cost for two ladies. At once. And willing to copulate with a giant cat. If the answer is less than a thousand pand, I'm in."
  • Durance: "Now to find a home for my other staff."
  • Eder: "Nothing like this in Gilded Vale. Just Walaruna, the milkmaid. She knew what she was doing."
  • Grieving Mother: "So many minds here... filled with lust, gaiety... but also with worry, heartache, terror..." She looks around at the talking, laughing, drinking crowds. "These rooms have been filled by despair at the Hollowborn as much as by anything else..." Her gaze returns to Maea. "A shame that one would so readily profit from it."

Prostitutes[edit | edit source]

Sleeping with any of the prostitutes in the brothel confers an additional boon, but to the player only. This bonus stacks with other resting bonuses and can be useful if trying to succeed in a difficult attribute check, though resting with or without bonus after having slept with a prostitute removes the boon.

The prices are determined as follows:

It is possible to seduce one courtesan of your choice to work for you as hireling in Caed Nua.

  • If the Watcher's Constitution is at least 19, you will be able to seduce one of them to work for as a hireling at Caed Nua.
    • Courtesan working in your chamber in Brighthollow will not provide you boons anymore (known issue), however will provide +2 Prestige if hired.
    • Seduced courtesan will no longer appear in Salty Mast (as was the case in earlier versions of the game.)
    • You can recruit only one courtesan, afterwards this option becomes unavailable.
  • If the Watcher's Constitution and Dexterity are both at least 19, you will only be prompted to hire the coutesan, and will not get the Dexterity bonus (i.e. your money back) until after hiring the courtesan. This is due to obscure logic, and not by design.
  • Serel can't seduced.

  • +2 Dexterity

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Some of the content in this inn was created as a backer reward for the RPG Codex community.
  • The initials of the "Club of Refined and Prestigious Gentlemen", as well as the emblem on its Membership Ring, build the abbreviation CRPG, a common term for computer role-playing game.
  • In dialog and as location on the map, the club is named "Club for Refined and Prestigious Gentlemen".
