Rauatai is a Culture in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. Cultures are selectable during Character Creation, and provide the player with an additional Attribute bonus, as well as dictate the Background that can be chosen. Backgrounds provide an additional bonus to Skills.
The powerful naval kingdom of Rauatai is dominated by coastal aumaua and ruled by a ranga nui. Currently the most prosperous of the Old Empires, Rauatai has expanded aggressively into the Deadfire Archipelago to secure natural resources that are scarce in their native, storm-torn land. Though folk, dwarves, and orlans can be found in Rauatai, most are merchants or remnants of the old kingdoms Rauatai conquered when they seized power centuries ago.
Legends say that the Rauataians came to their lands from the Deadfire Archipelago in the wake of a terrible cataclysm, but the details of that event have been lost to time and the imagination of storytellers.
