A Curse of Cold Clay is an off-screen companion adventure in Pillars of Eternity.

In-game description[edit | edit source]

The pitch:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
All across the Eastern Reach, people are being buried in graveyards and returning from the dead as fampyrs. Examination by locals has revealed that animancers had tampered with several gravesites prior to the burial.

Local lords have released bounties for the capture of whoever is responsible. Unfortunately, the rapid spread of the events leads many to believe that a group, not a single individual, is behind the experiments.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
[Companion Name] traveled from Hangman's Abbey to the Bay of Crowns investigating the various reports of fampyr appearances. In each case, [Companion Name] discovered that the grave sites had elaborate glass, copper, and adra devices buried around them.

The distinctive intricacy of the devices was traced to a Vailian dwarf that had been shunned for his unpleasant practices in Selona and Ancenze. When captured, the dwarf claimed his intent was not to create fampyrs, but to restore life. The fampyrs were created due to the dwarf's inability to solve a fundamental problem with his machinery. The incredible frequency of the dwarf's activity was not due to co-conspirators, but rather his extensive use of drugs that kept him awake and frantic for days on end.

Once confronted, the dwarf put up no fight and allowed himself to be taken into custody. When [Companion Name] left him, he was awaiting trial in Telaneir.
