The game is set on the dream world of Rivellon, centuries after Divinity: Original Sin. Living beings on Rivellon have a kind of energy called Source, and people called Sourcerers can control Resource to cast spells or enhance their battle abilities. The Seven Gods of Rivellon had actually surrendered a section of their cumulative Source power and also infused it into a person, Lucian, who became what is called the Divine, whose duty is to utilize his powers to hold back deep space. However, Lucian died before the beginning of the game, which deteriorated the Veil in between the Void and also Rivellon, and also monstrous animals of deep space known as Voidwoken are beginning to invade Rivellon. Voidwoken are drawn to using Source, which has resulted in the persecution of Sourcerers, largely by an organization called the Divine Order, whose Magisters enforce their will. Deep space is also residence to a dark divine being known as the God King. At the beginning of the game, the player personality is a Sourcerer who is captured by the Divine Order as well as sent out to an island citadel referred to as Fort Happiness. Fort Joy is a prison for Sourcerers, seemingly to treat them of their Source powers, but in reality “removing” the Sourcerers to turn them right into brainless husks. Throughout the trip to Fort Joy, an enormous Kraken Voidwoken attacks and sinks the ship, but the gamer character is saved from drowning by a mysterious voice, who calls the player “Godwoken”.
Awakening on the shores of Ft Pleasure, the Godwoken witnesses the ruthless regime of the Divine Order on the island, led by Lucian’s son Diocesan Alexandar as well as his primary enforcer Dallis. The Godwoken likewise finds out of a tyrannical Sourcerer king called Braccus Rex, that had lived and also passed away around 1000 years ago. The Godwoken runs away from the citadel and visits the Hall of Mirrors, the world of the Seven Gods, where the Godwoken encounters among the 7. The God discusses that he or she was the mysterious voice that rescued the Godwoken from sinking, and that the Godwoken must become the next Divine. This is since the weakened Veil has actually allowed deep space to enter Rivellon, and also the Gods’ powers are in some way being drained pipes. Therefore, the ascension of a brand-new Divine is necessary to hold back the Void.
The Godwoken escapes from the island, but Dallis obstructs the Godwoken during their trip, helped by a strange hooded number called Vredeman, who uses effective Resource spells. However, the Godwoken manages to get away.
The Godwoken sails to the island of Reaper’s Coastline, which is also under Divine Order control. There, the Godwoken slowly expands their Source powers till they attain mastery of Source. The Godwoken likewise encounters their God again, that instructs the Godwoken to the Well of Ascension, where the Godwoken will certainly be able to soak up adequate Resource to end up being Divine. Throughout their time on Reaper’s Coastline, the Godwoken also finds out that Dallis and also the Magisters have actually dug deep into the Aeteran, a powerful artefact with a boundless capability for removing Resource. Furthermore, the Godwoken encounters a never-ceasing being called Aeterna. Aeterna declares that she belongs to a race referred to as Eternals, that were the original denizens of Rivellon. The 7 Gods were themselves Eternals, but they hungered for the power to rule as gods. To achieve this, the Seven betrayed the other Eternals and eradicated them to deep space, and afterwards developed the mortal races of Rivellon in their very own likeness, from whom the Gods would have the ability to drain pipes huge amounts of Resource and come to be supremely effective.
The Godwoken sails to the Nameless Island where the Well of Ascension lies. There, they discover that the Eternals in deep space have come to be the Voidwoken, which the king of the Eternals prior to their banishment is the deity now referred to as the God King. Furthermore, the God King and the Voidwoken mean to return to Rivellon as well as recover their rightful house. The Godwoken makes their means to the Well, however before they can take in the Source within and end up being Divine, Dallis appears with the Aeteran and ruins the Well. The Godwoken’s failing to come to be Divine enrages their God, who attacks the Godwoken in desperation, yet the Godwoken beats their God.
The Godwoken goes after Dallis to the Tomb of Lucian, situated in the harbor city of Arx, yet locates that Lucian lives in it. Lucian discloses that he forged his fatality as well as concealed in his burial place, and it is he, and also not the Void, that has been draining pipes Resource from the 7. Lucian means to remove all Source from Rivellon and also utilize it to permanently secure the Veil, which will ultimately bring tranquility to the globe. Dallis, who is privately a Timeless, has been helping Lucian. To this end, she has actually resurrected Braccus Rex, who has been serving Dallis under the name of Vredeman.
Braccus Rex breaks free of Dallis’s control and also summons the Sea serpent to assault the Godwoken, Lucian, as well as Dallis. After Braccus Rex is defeated, the Godwoken can choose from a number of endings, such as ascending to become the next Divine, removing all Source from Rivellon, releasing the Resource as well as the powers of Divinity to the world, or enabling the God King to return to Rivellon as well as recovering the land to Eternal guideline.
