- "A crawling foulness will overcome you because you did not shut the gates of your heart to inequity."
- —Prophetic saying from the Litany referencing the Rat Plague.
The Litany on the White Cliff was an event that jumpstarted the existence of the world's foremost religion, the Abbey of the Everyman. It occurred at the current site of the city of Whitecliff, in Gristol. It appears to be a series of prophetic sayings, one of which references the Rat Plague.
A book on the Abbey of the Everyman suggests that the Litany was a religious cleansing wherein Overseers laid siege to the population of Whitecliff, "purging" the region of "heretics, witches and thralls of the Outsider." In the month of ceremonial rights that followed, speeches and invocations by various Overseers were transcribed and carried back to the Abbey, presumably to be compiled in written form.
