The Cult - Freebooter Miniatures
After the first big rift in the pirate captains’ alliance, Captain Asqueroso had turned towards the Cult. This organisation is controlled by the mystic Sybiline who is guiding her followers to an as yet unknown goal. Since then, a steady stream of Cultists together with soulless Sansâmes and Cult-sympathising pirates has been emerging from Longfall’s dark corners, trying to grab power for the dark forces.
After the Pirates had successfully driven the Empire out of Longfall, something crawled out of the woodwork which nobody had expected to become a major power. The Cult has resurfaced and these uncertain times provide it with a large influx of new members whose old world is falling apart in chaos around them.
A secret talent allows the mystics of the Cult to invoke ghosts from a parallel world, so-called Loas and call them into the bodies of the living to cause various effects. These effects can be subtle or dramatic, benevolent or really rather nasty indeed. Some Loas are recalcitrant and thus expensive to invoke, others are rather more docile and easily satisfied. The circumstances of an invocation are so special, however, that it requires a mechanism of its own.
