The Sect of the Silver-Shelled Snails is a secret organization.
Composed either of sentient snails, or of people believing themselves to be snails, the Sect is one of the many copycat secret societies born of the partial implosion of the Horde of the Violet Hare. The Snails' purpose is to best all other secret societies and thereby prove themselves the best. In the process, they form uneasy alliances and bitter rivalries with other Horde copycats, such as the Society of the Scarlet Crabs and the Gaggle of the Golden Goats (with whom they very briefly merged in 2019 to become the ‘Grand Group of the Escargoat’, though it didn't last).
Behind the scenes Edit
The Sect of the Silver-Shelled Snails was created by an anonymous reader (known by the Wiki to be Lupan Evezan) in the comments section of Joe Torcivia's The Issue At Hand as part of the long-running joke "storyline" of weird secret organizations interacting with the blog-writer.
