Lavender and Lye 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.
On a remote island in the Deadfire Archipelago, the famed apothecary Tama Watua creates potions and unguents that are renowned from Naasitaq to the southern edges of the Eastern Reach.

He boasts that the secret to his success is his location within the archipelago, from which he has access not only to a huge array of native creatures and plants, but also to merchants traveling from all the settled parts of the world.

Lately, Tama's home and laboratory have come under attack by pirates, forcing him to flee from island to island almost every day. The apothecary's clients and Tama's many children have pled with the pirates to stop their pursuit. Receiving no sympathy from the pirates and no help from the mainland rulers of Abet, they have turned to mercenaries in the Eastern Reach for help.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Joining five other Eastern Reach mercenaries, [Companion Name] became a passenger on an aumaua longship. Swift and full of weapon-bearing sailors, the ship came into regular conflict with pirates during the pursuit of Tama's kidnappers.

Eventually, [Companion Name] and the crew spotted the Vailian caravel holding Tama and were able to overtake it before it reached open water. With grapples and a fair share of acrobatics, the mercenaries and aumaua sailors boarded the caravel with [Companion Name] in tow. The battle on the ship's deck was so thick with pistol fire that the smoke made it difficult to tell friend from foe.

In the confusing melee, [Companion Name] came face to face with the pirate captain. In the subsequent scuffle, the longship collided with the caravel and sent it lurching. The captain slid down a length of the deck and was knocked overboard by a poorly-secured cannon. With their leader sinking beneath the waves, the remaining pirates quickly surrendered or dove into the water in an attempt to escape to a nearby island.

Upon Tama's return, his friends and family held a huge feast to honor him, [Companion Name], and everyone else that helped save him.
