No, this isn't serious. I can't stop myself. HALP!
From whence it came, no one knows. All the cult knows is that it appeared one day, and that in a deep and terrible voice, the shambling blue mound of fur made its demand, its vast maw crying out for its sacrifice. And in that moment, they fell before it, bringing forth the demand that it required. And with a vast and terrible sound, it devoured them. And they knew that if they did not assauge that demand, then they would be the next to be eaten by the creature.
To that end, they have begun to pilfer and steal from the area to feed the monster, bashing in the heads of shopkeepers and taking as much as they can carry in their sacks and running back to the creature as fast as they can. The preferred food in question? Cookies.
It is bad enough that the town council is considering hiring some low level adventurers to take care of the problem, having come to discover that the creature this band of peasants is worshiping out of fear for their own lives is a very real beast. When their spies happened upon them, the point got out but a single cry to his trail before he was fed to the beast, with a terrible sound, described by the trail as 'OM NOM NOM NOM!' And, as the trail fled, he thought he heard the voice of the demon singing, 'o~ Humans are a sometimes food. ~o'

I am horribly amused, not the least because it makes That Thing as disturbing as it has every right to be.
...All of the things from that show disturbed me to some small degree, really.
Yum, cookies, a very sweet idea.
Is this a sinister take on Cookie Monster from Sesame Street?
Yes. Yes it is.
I have been given the mental image which is different that the one presented by piece. And it all hurts. Still it is okay. More of a plot than a cult. Unless the creature come back or such, it is just a chthonic-esk cult.
Heh Moonhunter, I think you need a Sesame Street version of Black Christmas -he would fit in well there ... :)
I love it! Even for a silly idea, it's a great start. It's possible to make much more of this. OM NOM NOM NOM! COOOOOKIEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS!
Heh. Might make it into CRTF if any of the players ever end up hallucinating.
