The Bridge Ablaze Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Quest

Group: The Beast of Winter

Start location: Harbringers' Watch

I have found myself in another part of Rymrgand's dominion - a tableau of Evon Dewr Bridge, the site of Eothas' destruction by the Godhammer Bomb.

If I can enlist their aid, the spirits here may be able to help me against Neriscyrlas.

Quest stages of The Bridge Ablaze

1. Investigate the bridge.

Evon Dewr Bridge isn't here by accident. Someone or something is keeping this place in the Beyond, preserved on the brink of oblivion.

Updates:

The battle that preceded the explosion of the Godhammer Bomb has been frozen in time. Exploring further might reveal why.

The soul of Saint Waidwen appears to be caught in a cycle endlessly playing out the events of his death.

2. Locate the missing fragments of Waidwen's soul.

The explosion of the Godhammer fragmented Waidwen's soul. He can't think straight in this state, much less help me.

According to Eothas, Waidwen's sundial will allow me to travel between the moments of the explosion. To do so I need only stand in bright beams of light and turn the dial towards the desired time.

Perhaps I can use this to gather the pieces of Waidwen's soul.

Updates:

A fourth fragment of Waidwen's soul rests in the Godhammer itself. Investigating the source of the explosion could point me toward that elusive piece.

Waidwen was unresponsive when I attempted to restore him. It's possible that he's only coherent in the moment before the bomb's detonation.

I found the memory of an incantation left inside a tower. I can't read it, but the words may be important to someone in this realm.

I found a priestess channeling a spell beneath the bridge. Like Waidwen, she is trapped in the same cycle - only her fragmented soul cannot recall the incantion she needs. She suspected that she left it in the southmost tower.

I gave the priestess her incantation and uncovered the location of the bomb.

A fragment of Waidwen's soul revealed a troubled childhood and domineering father.

A fragment of Waidwen's soul revealed that he carried his resentment into adulthood.

A fragment of Waidwen's soul revealed that he bonded with Eothas and chose sainthood.

A fragment of Waidwen's soul revealed that he understood and accepted his role in the end.

3. Bring the fragments of Waidwen's soul to the moment before the explosion.

Waidwen's soul paints a picture of the man he was before he became a saint.

Restoring the memories to his most intact self should make significant strides in restoring his mind.

4. Endings

I convinced Waidwen to join me so I could guide him to the Wheel.

I convinced Waidwen to redeem himself by fighting the dragon Neriscyrlas.

I decided it was best if Waidwen was destroyed for good.
