Cut Background Goals[edit | edit source]

  • Soul Warden: Save Nadira from the bugbear assassin.
    • While this event is still present in the game, completing it does not seem to award this inspiration.
  • Liberator: Liberate the enthralled fishermen from the mindflaye
    • The enthralled fishermen were a group encountered in the crashed Mindflayer ship during early access but were removed for the release version, making this goal unobtainable.
