Need to get a job done that even the scoundrels of Hanged Men would refuse? A battle too brutal even for the fierce Sowrds & Scars? That's where the cultist steps in.
These weird individuals will take every job, no matter how low the chances of actual success are. A cultist will gladly attempt to rob the royal treasury or even try to murder his high majesty Gilt King himself as long as there is the possibility to advance their goal. So what is this great goal that requires them to engage in such suicidal actions? Nobody knows.
The only thing that is sure is that this goal has to do with the Drop, and therefore Cultists are hellbent on getting thrown into the Chill. For the cultis any confrontation with they law is welcome.
Cultists in general to no belong to any guild, being far to unstable for society, but they are closely associated with the Murk Callers. This is also where most cultists originally hail from, with many cultist being mages whose research caused them to hear the calls of mysterious entities calling them to the deepths. Other examples include Gladiators that started to hear wispered promises of power after getting a particularly strong hammer to the head or Rogues falling for the voices that manifest around their recently stolen artifacts.
Although very different in origin, individual cultists share appearances and prefered methods of attacking, serving only to further the uncanny stories told. Each cultist is shrouded in a crimson red robe and wears a black stole, wielding a sickle attatched to a chain.
The "chainsickle", as it is commonly called, is swung in front of the user and will cause damage to anything a small distance away from the user. When charged, the sickle will rotate around the user in a full circle. The sickle is excellet for a medium ranged battle but leaves the user helpless in close combat.
There most feared ability of the Cultist is the ability to sometimes channel the force of their otherworlds patrons in the form of a a large hand that will swat away any object in front of the cultist. While some many deemd this as an simple manifestation of uncontrolled magic&mind, this technique even has been seen used by individuals that should not be able to use magic at all.
There you have it. A class idea with small backstory, a class weapon and some quick sketch to show you how it is upposed to look like.
Hopefully this won't count as thread jacking.
