The cannibal cult was described in Tales of the Reaching Moon #9 and also in Tales #15 as the Hungry Ghosts. They do not worship a single god but rather feed dead ghosts to keep the world alive. There was a spell from which could get stronger through eating their enemies but that didn't quite flow naturally from the aims of feeding the hungry ghosts.
