Cults - The Church Of Churn by NyxenAvenger Cults - The Church Of Churn by NyxenAvenger
"Barasus blessed us with immortality and *urp* plentiful feasts, so give me that *grrrr* chicken leg or I'll rip that arm off!" - Mother Herox

If their ever were a cult that lavished itself in excess, it would be the Church Of Churn. They used to worship and follow the Dark One Barasus in the old days, and in return for their servitude he blessed some with his cosmic power, which twisted and transformed their human bodies and minds so that they could be used to devour his enemies endlessly. When he died most of the cult had perished except for a few, and slowly they rebuilt themselves for the new world that lay before them. And although they still worship Barasus, they have become open to all of the Dark Ones children and do not consume human flesh as much as they did. 

Their churches are spread throughout the world (most notably in impoverished countries), each presided by a single Mother and a few Churners so that order is kept in the church.

Initiates are females selected by the Mother of the Church through trial by food, in which they are strapped to a chair and force-fed delicious food until their stomach reaches a certain limit, many do not survive. The ones that do survive serve as agents for the church, making sure that the supply of food is maintained to the church.
Those that show pure dedication are subjected to an ancient ritual using both food and cosmic power that distort and transform them into Churners, bloated snake-like beings that are capable of consuming vast amounts of food. They live a life of pure luxury in the inner circles of the church, with plenty of feasting and cosmic knowledge involved. A Mother is chosen when the previous one retires in which eligible Churners feast until they can't feast no more, the one that eats the most is declared Mother of the Church. The Mother is always masked and presides over all activities that her church partakes in.

Unlike most cults, their members are allowed to retire but only after serving 1,000 years in the Church. Despite their lesser influence on the world, it is still influential enough to control where the supplies of food goes to.

GLUTTONY

EXCESS

CHURN

Yes, a fat snake/worm cult dedicated to feasting and the like. Originally it was going to be the same as the Cuflux except really armoured and bat-shit crazy, but I wanted to make a cult that was pretty gluttonous and excessive that echoes a lil bit of Underrealm. I'd like to think their skin used to be a suit used to better accommodate their ascension, so it's fused into their skin and it looks messed up and all that.

Enjoy!

What a conspicuous initiation to a cult.

But really, reptilian cults are pretty neato.
