The Chesuncook Witch Coven, or the Cult of the Skull, is a cult-like coven of witches and warlocks who worships one of the Outer Gods known as Shub-Niggurath, and they are one of the many antagonistic groups featured in the Cthulhu Mythos genre by author H.P. Lovecraft.
They hold their ceremonies in the deep woods near the fictional location of Chesuncook within Maine, U.S.A.
They are a very secretive society and they will not allow just any outsiders to join them, only those who are willingly to give up their freedoms and lives to be part of this coven.
The cult practiced dark magic and praised ShubNiggurath's name.
Their rites and ceremonies supposedly include entering a subterranean cavern and descending 6000 steps to a pit filled with hungry shoggoths.
