Pillars of Eternity II Fig Update #23: All About Naga

Tags: Obsidian Entertainment; Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

Obsidian have published a new Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Fig update, in what looks like is going to be a regular Tuesday update schedule. This update formally introduces the Naga, the Deadfire Archipelago's designated trash mob race. They look like they're going to be a bit more complicated than the Xaurips, though. I quote:

Behold the intimidating and cunning naga, one of our many types of creatures in Pillars II.

Variants, Types & Abilities

There are three variants of naga with their own resistances and weaknesses:
  • Naga (Poison)
    • Resistances: Poison
    • Weaknesses: None
  • Flame Naga (Fire)
    • Resistances: Dexterity Afflictions (Hobbled, Immobilize, Paralyze), Piercing Resistance
    • Weaknesses: Slashing, Water
  • Coral Naga (Water)
    • Resistances: Dexterity Afflictions (Hobbled, Immobilize, Paralyze), Piercing Resistance
    • Weaknesses: Slashing, Shock
The variants can be further broken down into types, each with their own unique abilities:
  • Warriors: The least intelligent type of naga. These are brutes focused primarily on dealing melee damage.
  • Skirmishers: Also known as archers. Skirmishers are the most venomous, cunning, and deadly.
  • Shamans: Spiritual and political leaders. Most intelligent and Druid/Priest casters.
Lore

Naga are a species of intelligent, reptilian wilder. They are native to many islands in the Deadfire Archipelago, and their various subspecies have adapted to a variety of conditions present there, including jungles, coral atolls, and volcanic slopes.

Social by nature, they tend to live in large groups, often under the guidance of spiritual leaders. Most are highly religious and consider themselves more sensitive to the will of the gods than kith societies, which has led to violent confrontations between the native naga and the many newcomers to Deadfire. On the other hand, they maintain neutral relationships with most Huana tribes.

Their long-established oral tradition tells of the cataclysmic devastation of the archipelago millennia ago, and of the kith misdeeds that preceded it. Many attribute naga hostilities to these tales and to the mistrust they engender.
As of this week, Deadfire has gathered $4.55M of funding (apparently last week's update was mistaken). According to Obsidian, the backer portal site should be ready "very soon".
