The Shaolangan religion


A 100-word religion

"You find yourself in a vast temple filled with terrifying carvings."

Shaolangan religious art is deemed to be some of the most graphic and terrifying art known in the world. Their temples are filled with hideous frescoes depicting their goddess subjected to horrific methods of torture and cruelty.
The calm and peaceful Shaolang believe that their goddess suffers for them and all mankind at the hand of demonic tormentors in the underworld. The more she suffers, the better the world is. Shaolang monks also self-harm in imitation of their goddess.
Needless to say, the religion is widely misunderstood.

Decent, deserves to be expanded upon. The art remembers me of Ancient Indian temples, the martyred aspect has a Christian vibe.

Our Lady of Endless Suffering, I think this is fantastic, and very easily misunderstood.

Some countries might ban it.

I think this a perfect jump for a religion.  I am also impressed that you added bit of mystery in even such a sparse post.  We get one impression, then another and then a 3rd  all in 100 words. Well done.

Very nice idea! Quite believable and, as axlerowes pointed out, we get everything we need to know in 100 words.

Very nice, and slightly 'deeper' than it seems at first. Great example of the power of a few words! After reading the second sentence I'm hooked and my 'sense-of-wonder gland' tingles.

Man-Eating Grapes

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes.

The grapes literally eat their victims from the inside out, via cell death, melting and destroying the organs in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, of the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
