CULTS

Groups gather beneath the moonlight to call upon unknown horrors...

From the early days of mankind group worship of deities and objects has been a prevalent part of everyday life, there are those however that take their worship to the extreme in an effort to attain power and control placing themselves in positions of power throughout history. They build themselves from the ranks of the lonely wanderers and slowly amass a following that usually tends to go off the deep end eventually.

 

For your understanding we consider any established organized group of humans, with a religious undertone and shady reputation for this list, if you believe you’ve uncovered a cult and would like our help investigating please reach out to us on our contact page!

While ironically all religion on our planet stems from an initial cult uprising years before, by the time the group has grown big enough to solidify itself is usually when the weird stuff starts to happen. Kidnappings, murders and pyramid schemes are all the typical traits of these groups, however in extreme circumstances they can even get themselves embedded in political scandals like in Korea… [ADD LINK TO ARTICLE]
