A Mother's Plea is a side quest in Pillars of Eternity.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Aufra is worried about her unborn baby. She asks you to venture to Anslög's Compass to find someone who can prevent her baby from becoming a Hollowborn.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  1. Once you arrive in Gilded Vale, go to the first house, Aufra's House, on the left-hand side and enter it.
  2. Speak to the woman, Aufra, and offer to help her and she'll give you some gold.
  3. Leave the house and travel south to Magran's Fork and south again to Anslög's Compass.
  4. Once in Anslög's Compass head south-west eliminating any Xaurip you see.
  5. When you reach the ocean go east and speak with Ranga and ask for the potion.
  6. She'll ask you to kill all the Xaurip in Anslög's Compass. Aside from the Xaurip you would've encountered by walking towards Ranga, there is also a Xaurip encampment in the north-east.
  7. After eliminating the Xaurip return to Ranga and she'll send you on another errand to the cave slightly above her.
  8. Enter the cave and kill at least one Sporeling, and pick up the spores it drops.
  9. Return to Ranga and get the potion, she'll tell you the potion doesn't actually do anything.
  10. Return to Aufra and give her the potion

Journal[edit | edit source]

Id Description
10000 By order of the lord of Gilded Vale, all mothers who give birth to hollowborn children will be exiled from the village. Aufra worries that she may find herself among their number.
10001 In Gilded Vale, I met Calisca's sister, Aufra. Aufra is expecting a child and is worried that she, too, will give birth to a hollowborn, as have many unlucky women before her. She has asked me to travel south to Anslög's Compass, where I can find Ranga, a midwife who is said to know a way to ensure that Aufra's child retains its soul.
10002 Rather than take payment, Ranga has asked me to help her xaurip assistant, Tana. It seems that he's being hunted down by the members of his old tribe. Their camp is at the northeast section of the lagoon, and Ranga has asked me to deal with them.
10003 I have acquired the mixture Aufra asked for, but Mother Ranga has revealed to me that this concoction is really only a midwife's remedy to improve Aufra's health, rather than a cure.
10004 Ranga's concoction apparently requires a particular part from one of the sporelings found within the nearby sea cave. She has asked me to retrieve one for her while she works on the rest of the mixture.
20000 I have reached the lagoon. Ranga is said to live around here somewhere.
20001 I dealt with Ranga's unpleasant neighbors. Perhaps now she'll be willing to help me in turn.
20002 I have the spores Ranga asked for. She should be able to complete the mixture once I return them to her.
30000 Someone critically important to this quest has died.
30001 I returned the potion to Aufra, and let her believe that it holds the magical properties she was expecting. Perhaps she and her child will be fortunate. Only time will tell.
30002 I returned the potion to Aufra, and told her the truth about the mixture. She was understandably disappointed, though still appreciative of my efforts. She holds little hope, now, however, that she and her child will have a future in Gilded Vale.
30003 Ranga has been killed, and her secrets die with her.
30005 I returned the potion to Aufra, and let her believe that it holds the magical properties she was expecting. Perhaps she and her child will be fortunate. Only time will tell.
