Banner created by ... Anny Thundergirl -- Monria Media Team What is known historically, is that the St Edwards Church in Teakesbury, England was built in the 1500s, and can trace its ancestry back to its original founding members. The original colonist, Frederick Waverly, started this church at that time. The Cultists claim that Frederick Waverly was one of the oldest and original members of the Cult of Shut’thend, and that this church was built for the cult and not for any other religious organization. One of the leaders by the name of Decca claimed to have proof in the form of documents relating to the direct sale of the church from Frederick Waverly to the Decca family. These historical documents were presented by the Decca family claiming the rightful ownership of St Edwards Church. It took several weeks for the documents to be scrutinized and evaluated for their authenticity using various means of dating techniques. At this point in time, it was the year 2345, and many questions arose. if Frederick Waverly in the 1500s sold the church to the Decca family, why had they not been active at this point it's 2345, so what is the history of the church since the transfer when and how did another religious community outside the cult gain access to and use the church why is the Decca family coming forward at this point to take over the church and claim ownership It is Decca’s contention that the documents had been in the family for many generations and it was time for the church to relinquish its ownership to the proper family regardless of how much time had passed. Decca believed that the church had essentially been “on loan” to members of religious organizations, and the Decca family had graciously given permission to hold sermon and sanctuary in the church for the duration. There was a great uprising after the historical documents Decca presented were authenticated. The religious organization occupying St Edwards Church at the time didn't want to leave and were fighting back. The townsfolk were also engaged in riots, causing total chaos in the streets. A podium had been set up outside the church where Decca was to address the crowd in hopes of calming things down. It was only getting worse, and her anger brought forth the unfathomable. Taking the podium, there was a loud buzz in the air. Decca's voice resounded to the crowd. “Enough! This is my church and has always been. You will all go home now and end this charade.” A greenish hue began to emanate from all around the podium and started to expand out into the crowd. “I have been tolerant up to this point, but now my patience has grown thin.” The greenish hue now extended out encompassing all members of the crowd. “Anyone who does not leave and go home will experience the wrath of Cthulhu, and he will have no mercy on your mind or body, let alone your pitiful souls.” The greenish hue completely engulfed Decca who was now levitating above the podium. Sparks exploded forth from her, then the screams came, slow at first, then a small snapping sound started. Members in the crowd started to experience pain associated with the snapping. Within seconds, the snapping increased to an electrical buzz, and then a buzz-like sparking became nonstop. As intensity manifested, there were more screams emanating from the crowd. Moments later people were running for their lives while the intensity continued. Screams of madness, pain and torture were now coming from most all of the rioters. Decca was nothing more than a glowing green ball of energy commanding sparks and beams of green into the crowd. Soon people were dropping to the ground as others were running away with their hands holding their head trying to get away from the intense pain and agony. At the end of it all when the energy dissipated, the fallout was evaluated. Hundreds of people lay dead on the ground, and hundreds of others were rolling around with their hands on their head trying to relieve the intense pain they were experiencing. With that, Decca, having returned to the ground, turned around and walked back into the church without making a sound or uttering another word. When asked why they would come forward after so many hundreds of years, Decca said that the time had come to prepare for the awakening of their beloved Cthulhu. On July 31, 2346 ... Decca and her Cult of Shut'thend followers gathered at Broodham, Massachusetts in the New England section of the United States where Decca and the Cultist Priests were to perform the ritual that would awaken their beloved Cthulhu. What actually took place was a grand exodus from Earth to Monria. However, while many of the Cultists had been transported to Monria by the ritual held at Broodham, Massachusetts, Decca had not been seen anywhere on Monria ... until recently. The speculation is, that the new City of R'yleh where Cthulhu lies sleeping in a dream-like state, is actually now located at the very core and depths of Monria, and while many attempts have supposedly been made to awaken Cthulhu, they have all failed. It seems Decca is ready to reclaim the Cult of Shut'thend and move forward with plans ... what plans, we don't know, but based on historical data, this can't be good for Monria. I will issue this ALERT but once ... if you see Decca, do not engage with her because it is known that she has the ability to add your name to the Book of the Dead ... also known as the Necronomicon. Time will tell what we will have to endure. For a more comprehensive understanding of the history of the Cultists prior to their great exodus from Earth during a period of time when dark evil forces invaded sense and sanity, and replaced it with unfathomable horror for those who fought against, or resisted the Cultists and the Cult of Shut'thend ... read Volume 2 of Monria's official storyline ... written by Pinthas Schmenke Dorian.
