    Yep. This particular cult of Moloch was centered in Carthage around the second turn or so, but in my headcanon, it had jumped around from Minoan Greece and the Levant before that. In this incarnation, the Cult centers around a relic that turns human sacrifices into Sekhem. And gradually creates a second personality in the minds of mummies that use it. Creating a weird hellfire club like cult, led by split personality mummies and an almost-but-not-quite-self-aware Relic.
    ......I need it even more


    My Homebrew Signature- Because I need one. If you use any of it, please share with me how it went!

    On a Dragonlance-reading break. Surprise homebrew may still happen :P

      Technically the Iron Bull is aware; it just doesn't care. Kind of like a G-M Angel or Infrastructure. It creates the personality to overcome the 'failings' of people who balk at feeding it multiple child sacrifices on a regular basis; as that is the most efficient manner to use it's abilities. Also adds more than just Sekham; the architecture rules mean that it isn't just a buzzword, there are actual mechanics now. Heck, the Relic teaches unique Utterances. The Word cannot be used without the Will.

      I also like the Utterances that they supposedly learned from Spirits. Too bad we won't get DIY Utterance guidlines this edition, but they have opened the door.

        I think it's due to the books not really going into the topic, unlike Promethean, Changeling, and Demon's supplements. Of course Hunter and Beast are crossover-friendly, and Mage is, too, as it's their nature to study Mysteries. Despite Changeling's Rite of Spring book I don't think that gameline is good for crossover any more than Mummy, what with a very secluded cosmology. The same might be said for Vampire
        Fluff wise you make a good point, but mechanically Mage and Mummies are so powerful compared to other splats that they cause all kinds of problems. A dev came out and out right admitted Mates, Mummies, and Demons are out right more powerful then the other splats by design.

        When they do the Crossover Chronicles they have their work cut out for them.

              If it were this week, it would have been announced in with the Secrets of the Covanents hardcover today. Since it wasn't I'd say next week at the earliest. Fingers crossed.
