Outrage is one of the primary thirteen Arcanoi from Wraith: The Oblivion. Outrage affects the Skinlands by manifesting a wraith’s will in the form of a powerful force.

Outrage is a fairly controversial art, even for an Arcanoi that blatantly violates the Dictum Mortuum. While it has its place in the Shadowlands, it really shines in the Skinlands where Spooks can essentially create all of the classic effects of the poltergeist. Because Spooks also tend to be temperamental or anti-social, many wraiths find dealing with them much more difficult than users of other Shroud-crossing Arcanoi; most jobs a Spook can do could conceivably be done by Puppeteers or Proctors just as easily.

However, there are some cases where a Spook’s haphazard touch can be required. Spook powers are frequently used to clear buildings of troublesome Quick. They also serve as the "muscle" of the Shadowlands, as their abilities can be immensely powerful with training. Many powerful Spooks serve in Stygia’s armies as long as they keep their antics in the Shadowlands down to a bare minimum. Some Spooks also work with Artificers to create relics.

When a use of Outrage gets out of control, destruction is not far behind. Objects are incorrectly targeted, or perhaps the Spook themselves accidentally strips themselves of Pathos, Corpus, or Willpower.
