Ring Finger 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.
Nîdhen was a Glanfathan murderer who was notorious for both his brutality and his ability to avoid capture by the tribes' best hunters. When he was finally captured and put to death, his body was buried in a secret place near Clîaban Rilag. A rîow had given the unusual recommendation in the hopes that the Engwithan ruin would capture the killer's soul and prevent it from returning to the Wheel.

During a recent Cleansing celebration, an orlan child stumbled across Nîdhen's grave. Not realizing what she had found, she told her parents, who guessed what it was and in turn told other members of their tribe. Within a day, Nîdhen's burial site had been plundered by a few foolhardy Glanfathans, the body carried away for ritual purposes. All that remained was the ring finger from his right hand.

The anamfatha oppose the use of Nîdhen's body for preparing sacred objects and will reward anyone who can return it to them.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
The hunt for Nîdhen's remains proved difficult, as the Glanfathans lied incessantly to cover for those who were responsible. An orlan brîshalgwin helped [Companion Name] sort the truth out, eventually recovering every part of the dead murderer's body.

Though the Glanfathans were more than willing to lie about what they had done, none of them turned violent when [Companion Name] and the brîshalgwin confronted them. An anamfath ordered the brîshalgwin to bury the body in a new location that was less well-traveled than the paths near Clîaban Rilag.

Upon returning to Caed Nua, [Companion Name] realized that the anamfath had never asked for Nîdhen's ring finger to be returned...
