Cadhu Scalth is an unique Shield in Pillars of Eternity 2.




This shield was constructed for the use of an Engwithan saint as he performed his eternal vigil. Crafted from a single slab of adra, Cadhu Scalth - "the Saint's Protection" - is a natural reservoir for soul energy and lent considerable power to the vessel who bore it. The saint was parted from his shield only when the volcano over which the sacred site he guarded erupted.

The shield was recovered many years later by a band of Roparu woodsmen where it was half-submerged in a quickmud pit. The Roparu, none of whom grasped the value of the find, retrieved it for curiosity's sake. The shield was no more than a novelty until it began to "sing," as the woodsmen described it. They recounted to their chieftain that the dissonant melody hummed with "luminous colors" that revealed their lives past and shook them to their core. The chieftain, unwary of the implications of such tales, took the shield for his personal use.
