St. Ifen's Knot 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.
Ymyran legend holds that St. Ifen created a miraculous knot that the faithless could not untie.

A daring burglary recently cleaned out the myriad precious relics in the Smith's Hall of Ymyrgal. Where each treasure once stood, a string was tied, each leading back to an intricate knot in the center of the temple. The burglar left a tantalizing clue in the form of a written prayer to St. Ifen, but the riddle has stumped the locals.

Desperate to recover their artifacts, the priests have reached out to mercenaries and adventurers for help.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
In Ymyrgal, [Companion Name] met with priests of Abydon to discuss the mystery of who had stolen the Smith's Hall artifacts and for what purpose.

During the investigation, a quirky priest of Wael lent the group his bizarre form of "help": answers to the thief's riddles posed as different riddles. After tracking down each stolen artifact through a series of additional clues, [Companion Name] and the priest of Abydon realized that the priest of Wael was the thief.

Very pleased with himself, he had no objection to being captured and sent to the erl of Ymyr for punishment. When [Companion Name] left the priests of Abydon, they were still trying to determine the point of the theft.
