Pillars of Eternity Raedric's Hold Lore and Screenshots

Obsidian Entertainment community manager Mikey Dowling has given us a sneak peek at one of the locations featured in Pillars of Eternity, Raedric's Hold, on the game's official forums. The post includes a trio of screenshots and a brief lore write-up to drum up some interest in anticipation of the game's release on March 26:

The Raedric line has held dominion over the lands surrounding Gilded Vale for generations, and its formidable keep stands as a bulwark against the dangers of the Dyrwood. Despite their lofty position as Aedyran nobility, the Raedrics joined in the fighting for independence from the Empire during the War of Defiance. In the wake of the Dyrwood's victory, they retained both their stronghold and their stature. Raedric VII now carries the title of Thayn, pledged to Gilded Vale's defense against all threats - both physical and spiritual in nature. Raedric's iron-fisted rule has seen his people through many hardships, but in the aftermath of the Saint's War, new threats have arisen - threats Raedric has sworn to scour from his lands and reclaim some of Gilded Vale's past glory. At his invitation, new settlers have braved long distances to settle within Gilded Vale, tempted by the offer of land and opportunity.
