Coastal aumaua are a sub-race of aumaua in Pillars of Eternity.

Origin and prevalence[edit | edit source]

Coastal aumaua live in a conquered mainland region, mostly along the coast of the northern hemisphere - lands they conquered by pushing Thyrtan, Natlan, and orlan communities out.

They are very rare in the Dyrwood, and as the result of an ancient campaign in the northern continent, people in the Dyrwood tend to associate the coastal aumaua with a more aggressive warlike reputation. This is not entirely accurate. However, it has led to a self-fulfilling prophecy whereby many coastal aumaua in Dyrwood are mercenaries, bodyguards, or soldiers.[1]

Physiology and culture[edit | edit source]

While physiologically similar to island aumaua, the coloration of coastal aumaua is starkly different - blue and green. Their culture is more centralized and urban than their island cousins, though both groups are involved in seafaring.

In-game description[edit | edit source]

Viewed as a warlike race, the coastal aumaua live in a mainland region along the coasts of the northern hemisphere - lands they conquered by pushing Thyrtan (meadow folk), Natlan (savanna folk), and orlan communities out. Their culture is more centralized and urban than their island cousins, though both groups are involved in seafaring. Coastal aumaua are very rare in the Dyrwood, but those that do make the journey usually do so as mercenaries, bodyguards, or soldiers.
