After hearing of the flameing eye robes found in the moathouse Burne the wizard replys: This is the Elder Elemental Eye they are a cult devoted to a creature or god they call the elder elemental eye.
a few decades ago this cult was known for constructing a temple called the Temple of Elemental Evil as their base of opperations. They were known to hire bandits and monsters and terrorize the local regions, includeing hommlet. Rufus and I were part of the very company that helped secure Hommlet at the time.
what become of the cultist or the temple i do not know..
there are a few legends:
some say the cult was locked away into the temple.
some say the temple is a portal to another plane of existance.
some say a gigantic demon was locked away as well.
some say this demon is orcus.
some say this demon was a gigantic fungus creature.
some say this demon is the eldar elemental eye.
and others believe that the cult was just a bunch of crazys worshipping something that dosnt even exist…
