The bigger/tougher they are, the higher up the religious scale they are

I've not seen a HW/HQ write up for Bagog (in fact that is one of the reasons I was looking at Kralor). Yes, I'd assume they were Animists, Bagog and Kralor being children of Kropa, but then Bagog is a Darkness and Chaos related being, so she may not follow the rules!

My guess though is a Bagog tradition with Darkness, Chaos and Scorpion spirits - Scorpion spirits are things like "Venom", "Resist Venom", "Jabber" "Claw" "Carapace" "many legs", while Bagog's special Chaos spirits are things like "Devour Memory", "Devour Skill". The Scorpion Queen is a "sacred chief" and the Cult Secret is the "Ritual of Rebirth" - a consumed being can be reborn as a Scorpionman.
