** [[spoiler: or you can just choose Devil of Caroc to stay behind. Being a golem animated by a soul, she doesn't really care about being crushed by rocks and sinking to the bottom of a frozen lake. She just shrugs it off and walks along the lake bed back to shore.]]

** In the White March, the ultimate question is whether or not the Eyeless should [[spoiler:rejoin Abydon, restoring his memories and making him once more the god of preservation]]. With the Eyeless at their mercy, the Watcher can choose to permit this, utterly deny them at Ondra's behest or, with strong enough philosophical arguments (which may be impossible if the Watcher has been too hypocritical to be convincing), compromise and allow the Eyeless to rejoin Abydon without fully restoring his memories.

* PhilosophicalChoiceEndings: "What should become of the millions of souls who have been locked out of reincarnation?" The game is set in the world where {{Reincarnation}} of souls is a stone-cold fact and revolves around the Hollowborn plague--a mystical malady that causes children in Dyrwood to be born without souls. As the Watcher investigates the plague, it becomes apparent that the Leaden Key cult is stealing those souls from the reincarnation cycle, and they set out to stop them. In the ending, the Watcher must decide what [[spoiler:becomes of the thousands, if not millions of souls stolen by the Leaden Key from the cycle of reincarnation during the Hollowborn Plague]]. You can return them to their original bodies, return the souls to the reincarnation cycle, use their essence to strengthen the living souls of Dyrwood, or destroy them completely.

* SuddenDownerEnding: If you have both parts of the "White March" expansion pack installed and beat the game with only the first part complete, [[spoiler:the last epilogue slide reveals that, shortly after thwarting Thaos, you were killed when the Eyeless razed the Dyrwood.]]



* SterilityPlague: What Waidwen's Legacy has done to much of Dyrwood, less in the sense of people unable to give birth, more that so many children are Hollowborn that the nation's population is in danger of collapsing.

* LimitedUseMagicalDevice: Anyone with a high Lore skill can cast spells from consumable scrolls, which is usually a good option if you need an additional caster or want to spam a particular spell without expending the caster's spell slots (since scrolls can be [[ItemCrafting crafted]] in ridiculous quantities by the endgame). There are also Rites--a special non-craftable, non-purchaseable kind of scrolls that boost the entire party's skills for a long period of time.

[[folder:''Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire'' tropes]]

!!''Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire'' contains the following tropes:

* BackFromTheDead: Eothas, whose death played a major role in the first game's backstory, has returned.
* ChekhovsGun: The massive statue of Od Nua in the Endless Paths returns with a vengeance when Eothas possesses it to destroy Caed Nua.
* OldSaveBonus: The game will recognize the choices you made in the first ''Pillars''. For example, if Eder died in the first game, he won't be available as a companion in this one.
