Gangs of Dunwall
Cult of the Outsider
The Outsider is a mysterious supernatural being said to be part-devil, part-angel, neither good nor evil.
Though many people worship him, such is considered heresy by the Abbey of the Everyman and punishable by extreme measures, up to and including death.
The Outsider remains neutral in regard to events that transpire in the mortal world. He does not place conditions on those he gifts with supernatural abilities, and does not factor hierarchy or effort into their selection;
The present site that Dunwall occupies was once home to an ancient civilization that collapsed for unknown reasons. Having existed approximately 1000 years before disappearing around the 9th century, its people worshiped the Outsider and inscribed whale bones with his mark. The ruins were only discovered in 1814, deep under present-day Dunwall. Many trinkets and artifacts still wash up along Dunwall's shores.
