At the Edge of All Known Things 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.
The famous and wealthy Rauatai scholar Amaia has been compiling a massive codex of Eora's varied legends over her long life. Pulling from aumaua sources as well as from Aedyr, Old Vailia, the Ixamitl Plains, and Naasitaq, the work is truly gargantuan, spanning thousands of pages.

While she has had scribes busy for the last two decades copying her current body of work, a few folk tales have remained out of her reach. She has attempted to contact the elder glamfellen of The White that Wends, arrange a special meeting with the Aedyre Ine Sycthrúa, and sit among the most revered rîow of Eir Glanfath. In all attempts, she has been unsuccessful due to various threats that stand in her way.

These last subjects will be the final chapters of her life's work, and she is seeking experienced adventurers to assist her.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
It took [Companion Name] more than three attempts to contact the glamfellen of The White that Wends without being attacked. When Amaia was finally able to speak with the elders, she wrote down their stories about where the glamfellen had come from, how they had arrived at the bottom of the world so long ago.

Getting access to the sacred adra sepulcher of the Aedyre emperors, the Ine Sycthrúa, involved more than a little trickery. Even though Amaia was only able to speak with the spirits of the dead emperors for a few minutes, it was enough to complete that portion of her research.

The wise ones of Eir Glanfath, the rîow, entertained Amaia's requests, but they questioned her for days to ensure that she would not share their sacred secrets, nor portray their people in a bad light. The rîow passed on their stories of the early days of Eir Glanfath, how they had arrived there and how they had received their instructions to guard the Engwithan ruins for all time.

Satisfied that her research was complete, Amaia returned to Rauatai to pen her final chapters and have them copied by her scribes. Though it will be several years until any complete copies emerge, she gifted [Companion Name] with a condensed codex of her essential work, including a large number of spells that had been enchanted into the last few pages.
