Cloak of the Fox and Hunter is a cloak in Pillars of Eternity.

Description[edit | edit source]

A Dyrwoodan legend tells the story of a hunter who spent days in the woods, trying to find food for her family. In her first trap, she caught a boar. "Please, great hunter," the boar begged when she approached, "I am no ordinary boar. I am the ruler of my kind. If you free me, I will reward you greatly!" So the hunter freed the boar, who ran off laughing, never to be seen again.

Her second trap caught a turkey. "Please, powerful hunter," the turkey said when she approached, "I am no ordinary turkey! I am the ruler of my kind. If you free me, you will get rewards such that you cannot imagine." So the hunter released the turkey, who also ran off laughing, never to be seen again.

The final trap held a fox. "Please, mighty hunter," the fox began as she approached. "I will not free you," said the hunter. "Already I have lost two wonderful meals. I will not lose a third. If you truly will reward me, then I will free you, but you must leave something of yours behind so I know you will return." So the fox left behind the length of its legs, enchanting the hunter's cape with its grace and reflexes. The fox returned to its kind, but was rejected for its short-legged appearance. "You look like a dog!" her fellows taunted. No longer welcome among her kind, the fox returned to the hunter and offered another deal: she would aid the hunter in all endeavors as payment for her life. This cloak represents the bargain between the fox and the hunter.

Weathered and worn, this cloak is tan with light splotches. When pulled over the head, the corners look like erect dog ears.
