Engagement is a term in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire.
Engagement can be acquired from Spells, Abilities, Talents, or by wearing a Shield.
Engagement occurs any time a character attacks an enemy with a melee weapon at close range. As soon as the attacker gets close enough, he or she will Engage. When a character is first Engaged, he or she will stop moving. The character is free to move around their engager, but moving away will provoke a Disengagement Attack. If characters break Engagement, there is a limited amount of time before that enemy may re-Engage them.
Some afflictions make it impossible for a character to Engage an enemy. All Strength Afflictions prevent the target from Engaging anyone, as well as Paralyze, Petrified, or Prone effects. Each of these effects will automatically drop Engagement and can be used to get out of trouble.
Some creatures, especially large ones, may be able to Engage more than one creature at a time.
