The Cult is made up of several inhabitants of the rural backwoods along the outskirts of DUSK, Pennsylvania. Their organization is led by a single leader, who must prove that they are worthy of leading by defeating the previous cult leader in a duel. The Cult's practices are mainly centered around worship of the Lovecraftian horror Nyarlathotep (and possibly even Shub-Niggurath).
