...One of us, one of us. Ug-Qualtoth is returned...

Herman Granger

An altar to Ug-Qualtoth resides in the virulent underchambers of the Dunwich building, in 2277.


Anthropologist allege that swampfolk have a persistent belief in the occult, positing that they pray to an otherwise forgotten deity known by the human tongue as Ug-Qualtoth.[2] A peculiar monolith depicting this deity, can be found in the depths of the Dunwich building, although its purpose is unknown, as well as why it is there in the first place.[3] Although, a couple facts are known: the Dunwich Obelisk and the Krivbeknih share that same origin and only the "Screaming Sound of Uq-Qualtoth" can full unlock the Krivbeknih's eldritch secrets.[4]

  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.662: "[1.02] Blackhall Manor (LAT 02/LONG 07)
    Constance Blackhall was obsessed with the occult. She turned her newfound wealth into a means of acquiring archaic texts and artifacts. The most notorious of these was the Krvibeknih. Constance drew a small circle of devotees to herself, styling herself a priestess of an obscure sect based around the book. Constance lived an unnaturally long life, even in the radiation soaked marshes of Point Lookout. Local legend states that the Krvibeknih was stolen from her, and without it the woman succumbed to a death that should have found her generations before. Her legacy, having permeated the provincial culture of Point Lookout, persisted, but what little structure existed within that group deteriorated with no form of leadership. Theirs is not so much a faith as a collection of incoherent chants and rituals, their meanings long forgotten.
    The Blackhalls have stubbornly clung to existence, but Obadiah appears to the last of their line. He knows that the Krivbeknih has found its way back to Point Lookout, and intends to reclaim it, with the hopes of restoring power over the swampfolk to his family."

  2. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.44-45: "Swampfolk
    Although Point Lookout did not suffer a direct hit during the Great War, the radioactive fallout can be seen in the indigenous population that have slowly devolved over the decades, and now sport the "Point Lookout look." Sporting sinewy, pockmarked bodies oozing with strength and pus, the Swampfolk are a violent and stupid bunch, and they don't take well to strangers. They have a rudimentary belief system, and mark their territory (which is everywhere north and west of Point Lookout Township) with fetishes: straw dolls hanging from trees and bone totems. Anthropologists have speculated the Swampfolk have a belief in the occult, and some postulate they pray to a hitherto unknown entity named Ug-Qualtoth. Frighteningly strong, and ferociously territorial, they are among the most dangerous adversaries you may face."

  3. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.102: "Ug-Qualtoth
    A strange altar found in the depths of this building may hold the key to discovering more about this previously unknown entity. Unfortunately, because all investigators into grimoire oddities are currently attempting to scrape together a day-to-day existence or are dead, further research may never occur."
    (Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition Wasteland Census)
  4. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.641: "The Dunwich Obelisk shares its origins with the Krivbeknih, but only the Screaming Sound of Ug-Qualtoth can wield this power."
