Wise is the Cultist who anoints the pregnant belly carrying his imminent spawn. The anointing is to be done with green slime made out of non-toxic substances (such as green food coloring and clear Karo Syrup). Simply drizzle the jade ichor upon the vessel’s baby bump, then proceed to rub it around as the Cultist feels inclined. My recommendation is to wait until at least seven months have transpired before performing the anointing ritual.
For those wondering about words… one should mark the occasion with whatever intuitively seems appropriate. Reference to the Ancient Ones collectively or a certain A:O in particular is a good place to start. The Cultist could voice his desire for health, happiness, and a certain propensity for darker virtues. Mention of the expected baby’s name is another anointing staple. If the mother-to-be has something she’d like to add, then by all means she should be allowed to speak.
This ritual is very much like a baptism, except anointing comes before the birth. It paves the way, consecrating and making sacred the vessel which nurtures the unborn. Any kind of greenish liquid can be used to symbolize green slime, the thicker the better though. Green is the traditional coloring of Dread Cthulhu, it is the hue favored by our religion. Green represents life, alienage, and cosmic horror. Slime is considered to be disgusting, unclean, and often thought of as a foul secretion. As different from water as day is from night.
As some might remember, I performed my first anointing ritual a couple years ago. Tonight, however, I performed my second yet far more important blessing. This was a key moment because I annointed the vessel and forthcoming child which sprang from my very own seed. Preparation for Briella Emerald Satanis has been made. I feel satisfied with my magic… extending my slimy green hand out to the similarly coated tentacles erupting from the great outer blackness.
My Scarlet Princess and I are extremely proud of what we’re about to bring into this world. I hope you enjoy the miraculous pleasure of anointing your own spawn in the Cthulhu Cult tradition. To the creation of a new and better race…
