The CthulhuMythos is famed for its darkness and horror. Alien entities roam the world's forbidden places, turning men into monsters, entire villages into strongholds for their cults. Intelligences so foreign we cannot even understand why they act the way they do haunt us. Picture that. Then picture it in the [[NewWorldOfDarkness World of Darkness]].

* Starspawned Savants - Servants of [[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu himself]], the "Wakeners" are called to his home of R'lyeh, where they are brought into his service. Charismatic, the Savants are able to shift reality to their will, though they keep getting dreams from R'lyeh even after they answer the call.

* LovecraftLite: An interesting blend of a true CosmicHorrorStory and this. Yes, it's the CthulhuMythos, yes that means a bunch of alien gods with either contempt or complete disregard of humanity...except the game also makes clear that their schemes aren't coming to fruition canonically (without player assistance, at least), and their representatives on Earth can go down like any other supernatural template. Oh yeah, and you're playing them.

* VillainProtagonist: Outsiders are actually nicer on average then say, [[VampireTheRequiem Kindred]], and while they're certainly arrogant and have somewhat of a disregard for mortals, that's nothing new for greater supernatural templates and the patrons won't mind if you're nice. ''That being said'', vampires are a pretty low bar to clear, and the game makes perfectly clear that to an Outsider does not care about humans in the slightest, except for their cults and as [[HumanSacrifice regents]].

While the gameline follows the Lovecraftian mythos like Unneeded Main/ redirect to work page.PathogenTheInfected, it focuses more on the willing servants of the elder gods, as opposed to those infected by the old evils.

The Cthulhu mythos is famed for its darkness and horror. Alien entities roam the world's forbidden places, turning men into monsters, entire villages into strongholds for their cults. Intelligence so foreign we cannot even understand why they act the way they do. Then picture in it the [[NewWorldOfDarkness World of Darkness]].

In ''Outsider: The Calling'', this is the struggle of the protagonists: Surviving in a reality that denies their very existence. Still very human in form, they are still alien, whether through birth or...anything. To the Outsider, our reality is a dangerous thing, one they cannot understand. Whether or not they fully give to their strange abilities is only up to them. The two splats of the suppliment are an Outsider's Sect and Creed. The working PDF can be found [[https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hDIbVMLjGNKBgjDcyvrvKqkIMh3lWhj6HSldYPYwW0s/edit?hl=en&authkey=CMmy_NwK&pli=1#heading=h.3wqplv-gien2a here]].
