Ondra's Gift Map - Defiance Bay - Pillars of Eternity

Ondra's Gift it's a district of Defiance Bay City. Got the name because it was a wetland that was drained back in the imperial days. Now, it's a seedy district populated by sailors, common folk, and more than a few thugs, but it's a fun place, too, if you know where to look. Look for a place called the Salty Mast when you're there. Other than that it's mostly warehouses and abandoned homes.

04 Abandoned House

NPC: Dodwyna

As you enter the room, you see several figures huddled together. They stand at attention - armed, but not in matched gear like the Crucible Knights. At the center of the group, one woman looms over another, holding a flail. She snarls at the cowering figure.

"You've got pages of research here. You expect me to believe this was just your scratchwork?"

For Built to Last Quest

NPC: Vianna

Recover Vianna's research from the Dozens.

Vianna was tricked by members of the Dozens. Now, they're interrogating her about her research for the Crucible Knights. The ringleader must have confiscated her notes.Give Vianna's research to Dunstan.

I retrieved Vianna's notes. Dunstan is waiting for them back in Crucible Keep in First Fires.

Go to Crucible Keep (05)

05 Odda's House

The woman looks like she hasn't slept in days. Her hair is a rat's nest of tangles, and her eyes are lined with shadows. She casts an anxious glance at the door.

NPC: Odda

QUEST: Brave Derrin Brave Derrin

A young boy named Derrin has gone missing in Ondra's Gift.

Find Derrin.

Odda's son, Derrin, has been missing for two days. She has to care for her Hollowborn child at home, so she's asked me to search for him.

Odda last saw Derrin when he left with his father to go fishing at the docks. Perhaps I should speak with the sailors and fishermen in Ondra's Gift.


NPC: Noble

He was attacked by thugs, you can help him

07 The Salty Mast

After visiting The Salty Mast


Harassing Thug

I was attacked by the thugs who are harassing the brothel patrons. If Maea's theory is correct, one of them may have evidence of a larger plot.

Kill Thugs

ITEM: Rusty Bronze Key

One of the thugs dropped a key that looks like it belongs to a house in Ondra's Gift.

A hooded figure leans against a wall. When he notices you draw near, he stands upright and raises his hand to halt your approach.

NPC: Curnd Merchant

Password is "Yc Nybeon Eyldfeon"


An old man paces the dock and looks out over the water. He's fussing over something large and round, which he constantly shifts from one hand to the other.

You're not certain whether his wide-eyed, gape-mouthed expression marks surprise or fear. It seems he isn't, either. "You, uh, don't look like a guard..." He examines you - and your equipment - more closely. "Say, you wouldn't be interested in making some coppers, would you?"

NPC: Imatl

QUEST: Clandestine Cargo Clandestine Cargo

I met Imatl, an old deckhand in Ondra's Gift. He was part of a riverboat crew carrying several crates of cargo, including a few boxes of Engwithan artifacts. Several suits of armor from Cliaban Rilag attacked the crew, causing the ship to run aground.

Now, Imatl's looking for someone to retrieve three missing pieces of a broken Engwithan scepter. He knows an animancer who would be willing to buy the artifact if all of the parts are found.

Find the missing pieces of the Engwithan scepter in Ondra's Gift.

Imatl told me that the other pieces of the artifact will probably have washed into the shallows around the docks. I might be able to figure out what this item is - and get a better price for it - if I find all of the missing pieces.

For Brave Derrin Quest

Imatl told me that Derrin likes to play around the ships at the docks.


NPC: Marceno

QUEST: All Hands on Deck All Hands on Deck

While exploring Ondra's Gift, I've discovered that a sea chest has been stolen from one of the ships docked at the pier.

Find Marceno's missing crate.

Marceno, a young sailor, has confided in me that Captain Fortanero's sea chest was stolen whilst he was distracted. Fortunately for Marceno, his captain is enjoying himself on shore, and has yet to hear of the incident. Marceno has pleaded with me to find this chest before the captain returns. It is unlikely they've made it out of Ondra's Gift yet, I should start my search here.

For Brave Derrin Quest

Marceno, a local deckhand, told me that Derrin came by a few days ago asking to play on the ship. Marceno refused and saw the kid heading towards The Salty Mast, a local brothel.


As you approach, she eagerly turns to you. "You interested in doing some construction work?" Her clothes are simple but nicer than most you've seen in Ondra's Gift. "Pays good money."

NPC: Niah

QUEST: The Wailing Banshee

Niah's trying to renovate the old lighthouse in Ondra's Gift, but rumors of its haunting have driven away her laborers. She'd like someone to take a look around the place to prove that it's safe for work to begin.

Go to the lighthouse.

Niah gave me a key to the lighthouse in the southwest corner of Ondra's Gift. She doesn't seem to think there's anything wrong with the place, but she'd like me to investigate the rumors of its supposed haunting.

ITEM: Lighthouse Key

For Supply and Demand Quest

Deal with the instigator behind the attacks.

I've located the ringleader of the thugs. I may be able to put an end to the harassment around the brothel.

Confront Maea at the brothel in Ondra's Gift.

Aefre explained that Maea has been profiting from Waidwen's Legacy by raising her prices so high that only the rich can afford her establishment.

I've agreed to convince Maea to lower her prices.

[Reach toward the soul]

Tell Odda about Derrin's fate.

I found Derrin's body. His soul revealed that he was defending a prostitute from a pair of thugs near the Salty Mast. They murdered him and left his body beneath one of the docks.

Odda will want to know what happened.

I can also hunt down Derrin's killers and deal with them.

I picked up a dagger with the letter 'B' engraved upon it. It most likely belonged to Derrin's killer.

Return to Imatl with the scepter pieces.
