Human is a Race in Pillars of Eternity 2. Humans (or "folk") are one of the civilized Races that inhabit Eora. There is great ethnic diversity between humans in different regions of the world. In Pillars of Eternity there are three sub-races of humans: Meadow, Ocean, and Savannah folk. Unlike other Subraces, Folk all share the same bonus in the Fighting Spirit Ability.




Humans (commonly called "folk") are the most common race in the Drywood, the Aedyr Empire, Old Vailia, and the Vailian Republics. Though not as large as the towering Aumaua, humans are known for their strength and willpower.
