How to Brainwash Followers in the Cult of the Lamb ...

While a followers acceptance into a cult may seem to imply some level of brainwashing, keeping their faith is something you have to do often in Cult of the Lamb. It's important to return every once and a while to ensure that your followers arent starting to question all of the stories you've passed down. This could lead to a flood of doubt in your leadership.

On this front, the Brainwash ritual is a great babysitter. It lasts two days and locks the trust of your followers. You don't have to worry about dissenters as your flock is all completely stoned out of their minds. Here's how to get the most out of brainwashing in the Cult of the Lamb.

Acquiring the Brainwashing Ritual

To discover the brainwashing ritual, you first need to do some exploration in Anura. This requires seven followers to unlock the gate. Once you get to the area, make sure you explore every aspect thoroughly. Youre looking for a group of mushroom people seeking Menticide Mushrooms. If you talk to them, theyll tell you about their leader and the Spore Grotto. This gives you a global map.

Once you return to your campsite, you can go to the Spore Grotto and talk to Sozo, a mushroom researcher. Hell first assigns you the task of discovering 10 mushrooms, but you may also plant spores to grow them yourself. Sozo will give you a talisman piece and ask you to bring him 20 more. After collecting all the needed mushrooms, he will teach you the Brainwashing Ritual.

Using the Brainwashing Ritual

Simply go to your temple altar, select it, and go to the rituals menu. Brainwashing should now be available to you. However, there is a drawback. Rather than using bones as you would normally use in a ritual, you require 25 mushrooms (12 if you have researched cheaper ones).

Just be aware that while this means happy cultists for a few days, there's a good possibility of them becoming sick after the season wears off. The accumulation of poop and vomit can mean that it spreads to other followers. Allow it to sit for too long and your compound may become a ghost town.
