Key to the underwater shrine
-all people there are EXTREMELY violent. They see outsiders as threats to their god.
-Killing them shows their loyalty.
-citizens will sacrifice themselves as food for the experiments
Long ago when Ortranto was being created many people didn’t want to be a part of such a large establishment and spread out into the forest. Whereas most made their home in the trees themselves, some wanted to live in a much more suitable place, near the sea. After a very long trek they found themselves on the 3ast side of the continent along the coast. Pleased with the expanse of open land and ocean they made home here. The village itself was very prosperous as a fishing export. Their people were always fed and even were able to grow some crops nearby.
About 20 years ago, the village seemed to get hostile towards outsiders. No information is known to the outsiders as to why, but they think something must have happened to change their mind.
From the inside of the city there is an underground temple to their Ruthless God. The God was summoned from the ancient ruins and after it demolished all life there it made its way through the forest killing everything in its path. Near the ocean it went to wipe out the last village before heading back into the ocean, however it seems as if something stopped it. The creature now lives as a god within this village seeming to be amused with their tendencies. Since the god lived there they have been more violent and seemingly more immoral.
