Moon Godlike is a Subrace in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. Six sub-typed of godlikes appear in the game: Avian, Marine, Nature, Death, Fire, and Moon. The Watcher can be any of these, except Avian or Marine, which are unique to Pallegina and Tekehu.
Moon godlike are the most tolerated of the godlike. While their skin tone and a large moon-like growth on their foreheads may be strange to some, their appearances are generally considered more palatable by the other kith. Sailors have many beliefs about moon godlike and their propensity to bring luck, though there is little agreement as to what kind of luck they tend to bring.
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.
Moon 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.
- Silver Tide: The souls of all moon godlike are connected to reserves of healing energy. In combat, the first time a moon godlike is Hurt, Bloodied, or Near Death, they will automatically generate a wave of healing around themselves.
