Fulvano is a famous explorer hailing from the Vailian Republics.
Background[edit | edit source]
He is known as an eccentric traveller with a wish to see the world, and he prefers to travel by foot wherever possible, claiming to do so in order to gain the locals' appreciation of the sights, sounds, and smells of the lands he passed through. In practice, however, Fulvano often claimed that his explorations proved only that the world outside of the Vailian Republics was a foul, smelly place that paled in comparison to his homeland.
His last voyage took him to the Eastern Reach and the Grasp. Traveling around Gilded Vale Fulvano would give each of these travellers a gift, namely some of his own travelling gear, before parting with them, in order to help them on their own journeys. All three of these travellers can be found killed by wildlife in various locations not far from where Fulvano describes meeting them. His final goal was Anslög's Compass, where poor Fulvano experienced the height of misfortune. Apart from disappointment in the state of the lagoon (which he found underwhelming), he lost the bulk of his letters when he tripped over some driftwood, then when he tried to inspect the local dragon skulls arranged by xaurips, the tribe drove him off.
Ultimately, the tribe would end up driving a spear into his back as he sat writing an anguished letter chronicling his misfortune.

Other interactions[edit | edit source]
- Fulvano's "set" can be collected, consisting of Fulvano's Boots (Black Meadow), Fulvano's Amulet (Magran's Fork), Fulvano's Blunderbuss (Anslög's Compass), and Fulvano's Gloves (Valewood).
- A number of his pages can be found, documenting the whereabouts of each of the items and the people they were given to (with the exception of his blunderbuss, which was added in a later patch): Page from Fulvano's Travels (amulet clue), Page from Fulvano's Travels (boots clue), Page from Fulvano's Travels (amulet clue), Fulvano's Letter, along with a Chewed Letter and a Scrawled Letter, both accounts of the fate of Fulvano's travelling companions.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
During the Pillars of Eternity II crowdfunding campaign, a map of 'Fulvano's Voyage' in the Deadfire Archipelago was revealed. Each location Fulvano discovered on the map was unlocked at certain stretch goal tiers, to be included as actual locations in the game upon release. At the end of this event, the final map image shows a note written by Fulvano stating that he planned to retire to the Eastern Reach (where the first game takes place). This seems to also imply that he created the map before the events of the first game, then traveled to the Eastern Reaches where he then died.
