Obsidian’s Josh Sawyer belts out Dolly Parton tribute to the ‘Ultimate’ Pillars of Eternity 2 player

In 2019, Obsidian added a “final God Challenge” to its then year-old RPG Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire called The Ultimate, which made the game much more difficult to complete—so difficult, in fact, that the studio promised to engrave the names of the first 12 people to complete it on a plaque hanging in its offices. As is often the case, players began knocking off the virtually impossible challenge in short order, and by early 2021, 11 of the 12 slots on the plaque were filled. 

All 11 players on the plaque completed the challenge using one or both of the Priest of Skaen or Blood Mage subclasses, each of which offered a powerful survival advantage within the challenging strictures of The Ultimate. So in 2011, design director Josh Sawyer upped the ante: He promised to dedicate a performance of Dolly Parton’s great I Will Always Love You to the person to claim the final spot, if they did it without using either of those subclasses.
