You are an acolyte of the cult of Argaleth, a doomsday cult that has taken up residence in this town for now.
Currently you are "enlightening the masses", which is a fancy word for standing around all day handing out pamphlets.
You're not doing so well though. It's almost evening and you haven't managed to give away a single pamphlet.
Honestly, it's like these people don't even want to save their souls.
Hello! This is Cult Following - an adventure where you play as some cultists trying to bring about the end of the world. It's light-hearted good fun for all the family!
This thread isn't the first (due to some forum crashes), so if you want to read from the start, here is a mirror to catch up on the story. The art gets a lot better, I promise :y
Along with that, there's a mirror for all the little extra stuff I do sometimes.
We also now have a simple tumblr as a backup where I'll link to new updates, take suggestions, and answer questions about the world&characters.
Also, for discussion purposes, we have a Discord where you can hang out! I'm also on there some of the time if you need to reach me.
Oh, and we have a TVTropes page now. Fun times!
And if you like music, spinydoughnut33 has cooked up some sweet tunes specifically for the story! Big thanks to them!
Anyway, the update below is a little spoilery, so there's gonna be a bit of empty space before it.
Okay, on to the thread.
>Tell her how you really feel.
Acolyte: ...No, you know what?
Sister Embers: What?
Acolyte: Yeah! I'm GLAD I won't be your acolyte anymore!
Acolyte: Because now I can tell you what I really think of you!
Acolyte: You know what you are, Sister Embers?
Acolyte: You're just a big bully.
Acolyte: You're always mean, you're always angry...
Acolyte: What you need is- is a change of attitude!
Acolyte: Why can't you be nice like Grand Master Flame?
Grand Master Flame: Yes! YES!
Grand Master Flame: BEHOLD THE FLAMES OF OUR GLORIOUS LORD!
Grand Master Flame: THE TIME HAS COME FOR HIM TO SMITE THE SINNERS!
Brother Chalk: Sir? This- this isn't supposed to be happening.
Grand Master Flame: What, the flames aren't supposed to be blue?
Brother Chalk: No, there aren't supposed to be any flames at all!
Brother Chalk: The book doesn't mention flames anywhere!
Grand Master Flame: Huh, weird.
Grand Master Flame: Maybe we did something wrong?
Brother Chalk: I'll check the circle.
Brother Chalk: Just keep casting for now.
Sister Embers: Very well.
Sister Embers: I suppose an airing of grievances is in order.
Sister Embers: And now that you are no longer my acolyte, I shall inform you of what I dislike about you.
Acolyte: Sure, go ahead!
Acolyte: You already do that every day!
Brother Chalk: Okay, I checked the circle and it seems fine.
Brother Chalk: Maybe we should stop for now, actually.
Brother Chalk: Try again later.
Brother Chalk: Flames are getting awfully high...
Grand Master Flame: Yeah, I already did that like five minutes ago.
Grand Master Flame: You think I'm an idiot?
Grand Master Flame: It's still going without me.
Brother Chalk: I- uh- um- alright, okay.
Brother Chalk: Don't panic.
Grand Master Flame: I'm not panicking.
Brother Chalk: Well I'm starting to!
Brother Chalk: AHH!
Grand Master Flame: Well this can't be good.
Grand Master Flame: Okay, don't freak out, Brother Chalk, we can still fix this.
Grand Master Flame: Do you know "Test of Faith"?
Grand Master Flame: Cast that on everyone here.
Grand Master Flame: I'll check that the artifacts are all working properly.
Grand Master Flame: Sister Embers, you make sure that everyone is holding hands.
Grand Master Flame: ...Sister Embers?
Sister Embers: You are utterly incompetent.
Sister Embers: You have failed at every non-trivial task I have ever given you.
Sister Embers: If you were to leave this cult forever, I do not believe anyone would miss you.
Acolyte: SHUT UP!
Acolyte: People here like me!
Acolyte: And- and- and you were just holding me back, anyway!
Acolyte: I'm going to be better off with my new master!
Sister Embers: Oh, please.
Sister Embers: There is no one in this cult who is of a higher rank than me who you would have a chance to work for!
Acolyte: That's where you're wrong!
Acolyte: Because you know what!?
Brother Chalk: Hey, wait.
Brother Chalk: What if we just try to-
Acolyte: I'M GOING TO WORK FOR GRAND MASTER FL-
Jones: Oh quit pouting and drink your latte.
Jones: So what if those cultist guys gave us the slip?
Jones: We'll just catch them next time.
Jones: Not like they're gonna decide to pack up and leave.
Jones: Sure would make our job easier though.
