Fire Godlike is a Subrace in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. Five sub-typed of godlikes appear in the game: Avian, Nature, Death, Fire, and Moon. The Watcher can be any of these, except Avian, which is unique to Pallegina.
The bodies of fire godlike often resemble hot metal, burnt wood, or stone, with harmless flames that erupt from the cracks in their skin. Fire godlike are objects of both reverence and fear in the Deadfire Archipelago. Many locals believe they have the power to awaken volcanoes - or that killing one will cause a volcano to awaken. In the Dyrwood, fire godlike are often seen as a sign of the blessing of Magran, goddess of war and fire.
As far as anyone can tell, godlike can be born to any race in any part of Eora. They are children of humanoids (most often humans) who have been "blessed" before birth (or cursed, depending on personal or social view) with the physical manifestation of a divine spark granted by the gods. Godlike manifest their divine heritage in a variety of ways: wings, horns, strange birthmarks, talons, odd eyes - but they always manifest it somehow.Though their appearance may vary, there's something unmistakably otherworldly about them. Godlike are viewed differently by the various factions, faiths, and cultures of the world. Sometimes, the reaction they get is overwhelmingly positive. Many times, the reaction is overwhelmingly not.
Godlikes cannot reproduce and that's the reason why marriage is difficult for godlike in many areas because most societies consider marriage to exist for the purpose of raising children. In the Vailian Republics, godlike are legally considered to be without sex or gender regardless of how they appear or self-identify. Legal constructs that explicitly name (favorably or unfavorably) sexes or genders can cause problems for them.
Fire Godlike Race Bonuses
- Godlike are handled differently than the other races in character generation: you choose the type and the parent's race instead of choosing a sub-race. Godlikes of all subtypes get attribute bonuses to their Dexterity and Intellect, but they can't wear any headgear. Each subtype has a different passive bonus that is a little more powerful than passive bonuses from other races.
- Ashen Skin: +2 Burn Armor Rating
- Battle-Forged: When fire godlike are Bloodied or Near Death, +1 Armor Rating and 2-4 Burn Damage vs. Melee targets when struck by them.
