Common Year 579
Temple of Fire
A cult from the Temple of Elemental Evil that is dedicated to the worship of the element of fire. Its original sigil was the yellow eye. After the armies of evil were routed in the Battle of Emridy Meadows, the Temple of Fire lost most of its prestige and changed its sigil to an eight-pointed star formed by the arrangement of two superimposed squares.
There are at least two branches of this cult. One, led by the resurrected Lareth the Beautiful, used the ruined moathouse near Hommlet as its base. The other, led by Prefect Alrrem, had an altar inside the temple itself.
At some point in the recent past, there had been a disagreement or a political maneuvering, and Lareth’s branch had been sent into exile. Lareth ruled his sycophants under the sigil of the yellow eye, while Alrrem ruled his under the eight-pointed star, so it could be that Lareth wanted to relive past glories, while Alrrem wanted to seize the future.
