The Shaolangan religion

By:

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.

Blood Lover!

       By: Murometz

Forsht Bligo is a dwarf who loves the taste of blood. He's become quite the connoisseur over the years. Pigs blood, sheeps blood, cow's blood, if it's red and warm, Forsht considers it a delicacy. The fresher and hotter the better. Forsht will often sneak up on cattle, prick them with his dagger, and catch the flowing blood in his orc-skull drinking cup. His life goal is to taste the blood of every living animal. Although he has not yet sampled humanoid blood, he is not averse to doing so if the right opportunity presents itself. He is not particularly unpleasant if approached and can be easily befriended. Its just that he simply can't get enough of the "Juice of Life", as he calls it. Forsht's troubles come in the form of frightened and angry villagers who have proclaimed the misunderstood dwarf a vampire. Since Forsht is amused by this, he does little to dissuade anyone. This will lead to some dicey situations for Forsht in the near future.
