CHORAZOS CULT. Sect of Yog-Sothoth worshipers established in the mountains of Rumania in the late 16th century. Its leader was a man named Chorazos, who was supposedly of Gypsy extraction. The members of the cult came from such diverse places as Hungary, Africa, Arabia, and China. In 1594, the cult was exiled from its former Continental site to England, where a temple was established in Finchley. Though at first popular with Queen Elizabeth, the cult was hounded out of London in late 1595 due to an investigation by their former patron on the advice of Doctor John Dee. They moved their base of operations to a house known as the Oaks. Though the Chorazos Cult spent only a year in the Oaks, it became infamous throughout the area. When Parson Goodly of the local church asked Chorazos about the cult's worship, Chorazos cursed the surrounding land, which to this day remains poor and deserted. Finally, the countrymen banded together and burned down the Oaks. Chorazos and a few other members escaped to Scotland. Chorazos's cult received land in the Pentland Hills due to its supposed acts of healing. Before any official action took place, the people living nearby rose up following a series of disappearances, destroying the sect once and for all. 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.
