Er, sorry if this is common knowledge, but what is the cult of silence? Serious question, I haven't heard of them.

An Umathelan cult that practices complete silence.  In the Modern Age, they spawned a brutal Empire which conquered large parts of Fonrit.  The Empire was crushed but they are still around.  The most relevant material is in the Guide to Glorantha - Umathela chapter.

Mime.  The horror, the horror....

The Cult of Silence preaching about being trapped in a prison, or box, of your own making is especially poignant, as is the struggle of pushing against an unmovable object.

Hmmm.... is there a cult uniform of hooped shirt, beret and whitened face?

Best references to it are in the Guide as Peter noted.  It is a cult that believes that silence will create bliss and peace (and allow for proper meditation upon such).  Some sects strove to destroy all forms of communication (including removal of relevant body parts) in order to help ensure and maintain silence.
