The Night Mirror 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.
A series of disturbing murders and suicides in the western edges of Eir Glanfath has been linked to rumors about a recently unearthed Engwithan artifact. Victims speak of a large tin mirror that whispers maddening messages to those who gaze into it on nights of a full moon.

Dunryd Row and Brackenbury Sanitarium have attempted to interrogate survivors of the violence, but most are too disturbed to give coherent accounts of what has transpired or where the mirror has been taken.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
With the aid of a secretive orlan cipher, [Companion Name] was able to locate the so-called Night Mirror in a remote part of southwestern Eir Glanfath. Unexpectedly, the Night Mirror was holding several Glanfathans in thrall, all of whom were willing to kill to protect the mirror.

In a protracted battle, [Companion Name] and the cipher were able to shatter the mirror and break the spell over the remaining thralls.

As soon as the dust had settled, some of the cipher's "associates" arrived, apparently agents of some unknown organization. The orlan coyly apologized to [Companion Name], but explained that the remnants of the Night Mirror had to be taken away for safekeeping. He was so proud of how things seemed to turn out that he didn't notice [Companion Name] was standing on a piece of the mirror through the entire speech. Naturally, [Companion Name] brought it back to Caed Nua as a memento.
