Jerusalem's Lot. Religious community founded on the coast of Massachu-setts in 1710. Its people were a splinter group of Puritans led by James Boon, a young charismatic preacher around whose meeting house the small town was constructed. The doctrines taught by Boon were strange even by modern standards; his sermons were filled with talk of demons, and Boon asserted his right to take any woman in the community to himself whenever he desired to do so. As a result, Jerusalem's Lot became a town filled with insanity and degeneration. In 1789, when James Boon, now an old man, was still the head of the community, the aged pastor gained a copy of Prinn's De Vermis Mysteriis. He incorporated this book into his services, and on Halloween of that year he and his congregation attempted a ceremony contained within that volume. On that night, all of the people of Jerusalem's Lot vanished and were never seen again. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, monsters and creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations. Plus the odd tome, sigil, place of interest and manifestations of magical mumblings amongst the cursed. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
