Building a cult

As with any Homebrew item, make sure you have reviewed the _Meta section. If your file doesn't have it, it won't work.

Basic skeleton

To start, copy the following code block and fill the empty "" values.

Cult code block
"cult": [
        "name": "",
        "source": "",
        "entries": [
  • "name" β€” the name of the cult.
  • "source" β€” make sure it is the same as the "json" key in the _meta.
  • "entries" β€” consists of text strings ("") separated by commas.

More options

Make sure you are adding these blocks in the same level as the "name", "source", etc.


The page of the document in which this cult appears (not always applicable).

"page": 0

Cult type

This will render in the "Subtype" column in the table, plus they appear in the filters.

"type": ""


This will render as "Goals: Giving puppies to every citizen".

"goal": {
    "entry": "Giving puppies to every citizen"

Typical Cultists

This will render as "Typical Cultists: any NPC that has a nose".

"cultists": {
    "entry": "Any NPC that has a nose"

Signature Spells

  • This special entry will render as "Signature spells: Minor illusion (cantrip)" It is recomended to tag the spells for quick access.
"signaturespells": {
    "entry": "{@spell Minor illusion} (cantrip)"

Reference Tag

How to link to entries within the "entries":

{@cult <name_of_cult>|<json_source>|<optional_text>}
{@cult Cult of Asmodeus}
{@cult Cult of Asmodeus|MTF}
{@cult Cult of Asmodeus|MTF|and optional link text}
