In the first version of the game, there was the opportunity to find a Book called "A Diamond in a Rough" based on the "Fanfic" that Twilight Sparkle is writing in the second episode of Friendship is Witchcraft ( Read it and Sleep ). It was a simple inside joke between me and the testers, since we all saw that Parody. Still for some reason, the idea of the "Mysterious Cult of Smooze" was quite interesting for me. So i kept the idea and then expandet it to a sort of Forbidden Cult.
In the Setting of Seeds of Harmony, the Cult of Lord Smooze is considered by many a minor cult all made up. Not even the priest of this "Deity" are really shure about his dogma and shape, so you can find those who pretend that he is a Merciful Being, the Keeper of Forbidden Pleasures or a Destructive and Vengeful God. The most common between the nobility is obviously the second, especially for those who are arrogant, egocentric or even hedonsts.

Then we can see a typical statue of the mysterious God, as seen by those who worship him for untold pleasures and vices.
