Lovers' Light 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.
For the last two years, sailors on the Grace of Ciamena have seen a pair of lights dancing over the waves late at night. Those who have come close have reported hearing two women's voices singing a song of unparalleled beauty. Some believe they are the souls of Alessa and Pellanne, ill-fated lovers from a century ago who were cast out of Ancenze by a mob and driven from the cliffs to their death.

Ancenze's ducess condemned the mob's actions, but the unsympathetic songretta ducala did little to punish the offenders. Since the rumors about the lights have spread, romantic Vailians have gone to the cliffs or even rowed small boats out from the shore at night to catch a glimpse of the spirits.

Ancenze's new duc is doing his best to curb the behavior, but he believes the only true remedy will be putting the spirits to rest - no small task, given when and where they appear.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
A priest of Ondra and a crew of greedy sailors were all it took to row [Companion Name] out to the spot where Alessa and Pellanne's ghosts were singing. Unfortunately, the chaos of the storm overturned the small boat. [Companion Name], the priest, and the sailors were all plunged deep into the Grace of Ciamena. Miraculously, most of them emerged in a great sea cave near Barda.

Though the entrance of the cave was hidden from the surface, the interior held wonders that had not been seen for generations: sunken war ships, trade vessels, and remnants of the unlucky travelers that had fallen victim to the Grace in the past. [Companion Name] and the ragtag group discovered a tribe of survivors that had persevered in the caves through cannibalism and limited raiding. Their extensive time in the cave had left them unintelligible and wild. Though some attacked the crew of the recently-sunk boat, [Companion Name] was able to scare the others off.

Eventually, the group found their way to a pile of bones that contained the remains of Alessa and Pellanne. The Ondrite priest buried the pair together and performed a service over the bodies. With that, the spirits retreated from the world and toward the Beyond.
