Which D&D Edition Is This Game Based On?

Recommended Posts

Pillars of Eternity doesn't use the D&D ruleset (nor any of the D&D settings). But if you are familiar with D&D, you will probably feel at home fast with the Pillars ruleset.

PoE1 is inspired by Infinity Games, which were isometric real time interpretations of 2nd and 3nd D&D.


However, Deadfire uses its own ruleset, adjusted to be better suited to cRPG. A lot of mechanics should be familiar, but how they work and are calculated will be different. Especially in Deadfire, which rather than “inspired by Infinity Games” I would describe as a “sequel improving upon a game which was inspired by IE games”.
