    background

    Behooooo
    Cries the announcer, the crowd roars from the stands as the champion stands in the middle of the arena, one hand tightly closed up in the air, his other hand hold his blood covered spiked chain, one foot step on top the lifeless body of a leopard, around him lies 2 dead hyenas
    Zirat Igruf, Champion of Kord!
    The announcer continues as the fans throw flowers into the arena.

    Zirat, champion from the arenas of Chendl for the last 2 years and loved by all, the one who killed lions, wolves and slave goblin chiefs.
    Now it's time to leave the fame of the arenas and the fans, and receive the fame and glory from leaders and kings, Zirat decided to retire from the games and dedicate himself to the "church" of Kord.

    Background
    Born of Zookmoot and Heagwidge Boddywink in the small city of Cryllor in the Kingdom of Keoland, Bimpnottin Boddywink grew up a toddler amongst his fifteen older gnome brothers and sisters. All the children played amongst the Boddywink family brewery and tavern. Zookmoot, a master brewer, was known in Cryllor and the surrounding area for his heady cherry cordial. Heagwidge, no stranger to the sharp end of a stick, ruled family life with an iron fist and ran the tavern and kitchen, where Zookmoot’s cordial was served to an appreciative if lower society local crowd. Had Zookmoot not a penchant for squandering the family’s earnings on overpriced gems and baubles imported to Keoland from the neighboring hills, the Boddywink family might have been well-off and respected members of the Cryllor community. Alas, however, the Boddywinks were well known in the city for their perpetual poverty and it was spoken in hushed whispers behind closed hands that nothing good could come of a Boddywink child.

    Bimpnottin, because he was the youngest of a large family, grew up largely tended by his elder brothers and saw little of either parent. Perhaps this lack of parental guidance is what led to Bimpnottin’s early familiarity with street life. And perhaps also it helped a considerable amount that the elder brothers routinely left young Bimpnottin to fend for himself in a back alley full of human bullies. Whatever the case, Bimpnottin grew up untended, uneducated, and largely ignored by the rest of his family. Smaller than his brethren, Bimpnottin, or “Nuttin'” as his family took to calling him, was chided, derided, and beaten by his mother Heagwidge with such increasing regularity that eventually the boy felt it better to simply avoid home in favor of the safety of a barrel in the alley out back his mother’s tavern. When food was scarce, young Bimpnottin resorted to scraps left for the dogs or to thievery.

    Being that all of Keoland is provincial and bucolic and that in this area of Flanaess magic is held by the natives as a dark art, worthy only of suspicion and fear, it is no small wonder that Bimpnottin came to his skill as a mage late in life. Reviled by his own family, the small fester known as Bimpnottin Boddywink left Cryllor and at the tender age of 40, traveled east and north to the Free City of Wonders, Greyhawk. ‘Twas on his pilgrimage to Greyhawk that Bimpnottin shed his former identity and remade himself anew as Jinx Marblestopp, Master of Secrets, Purveyor of All, Gnome Extraordinaire. His new alias firmly entrenched, Jinx procured work after no small amount of struggle with an obscure alchemist in Greyhawk and has been a resident of the city since arriving at the age of 41, some 33 years.

    A goodly ten years after landing in Greyhawk, Jinx landed in a spot of trouble that grew into a bubbling cauldron of treachery. While robbing the home of a prominent textile merchant gone out of town on business, Jinx was discovered in the act and overpowered by the lady of the house, who locked him away in the manse’s basement laboratory. Now more than ever, Jinx wished he had paid astute attention at his master’s alchemist shop; alas, though, poor Jinx had whiled away his time sweeping sawdust when he should have been learning the art of potioncraft.

    After four days with nothing to eat and only a little water left in a basin, Jinx woke one night to a crashing sound coming from upstairs in the main salon of the house. Footsteps resounded on the floorboards above his head and Jinx grew nervous, suddenly uncertain whether death crept his way. Hiding in the corner behind a wooden stool, Jinx cowered, fear settling like a moist blanket, seeping into his very bones. All went quiet for a long while ‘til a key was heard scraping the lock at the laboratory’s sturdy wooden door. With naught but a single quiet creaking groan, the door opened and whispering voices spewed forth. A band of humans crept down the basement stair and began to loot the laboratory. Still fearing for his life, Jinx remained quiet in his corner but at the last was discovered by the band leader, who paled to murder a second victim in one evening. Jinx was captured instead and taken as bounty to the thieves’ den deep in the heart of the underbelly of Greyhawk. It is here that the real history of Jinx Marblestopp begins.

    The Nine Fingers, a thieves’ guild of Greyhawk, had accidentally discovered Jinx whilst looting the textile merchant’s home. Interested to know why the lady (now murdered) of the house should have locked away the small gnome thief instead of turning him over to the authorities, Jinx was taken for an audience with the guild master, a certain hooded figure whom Jinx never clearly saw. Sensing in Jinx the moxie to learn magic and well aware that the gnomish race is inherently skilled with weaving masterful illusions, Jinx was taken as the spoils of thievery and made an indentured servant to the hooded master, the Fifth Finger. In time, Jinx was taught magic by the guild house. As reward for his last guild mission, Jinx was presented with a day’s loan of the guild’s Tome of Calling and allowed to magically summon his cat familiar, a fluffy white beast with malicious green eyes by the name of Bauble. So long has Jinx been in Greyhawk, working days as the alchemist’s apprentice and nights as a guild thief, that he has long forgotten his roots and the name of Bimpnottin “Nuttin” Boddywink. His early years are lost, even to himself.

    When agents of the Furyondian king settled upon the Free City in search of men for hire to investigate the recent disturbances in Hommlet, many of the City's finer citizenry eschewed duty in favor of the surety of home and the comforts offered by city life. With no small degree of trepidation, one of the Furyondian agents made contact with the Nine Fingers. Jinx was quickly commissioned for the investigative task and sent abroad.

    After meeting up with the group in Hommlet and making two forays to the Temple, Jinx began--despite his initial intentions--to listen to and to admire Aeron the Last Prophet of Caria. Having spent one particularly fateful night in a barn in Nulb with both Aeron and Ciaran and, too, shared his own and listened carefully to the personal philosophies of his other two barnmates, Jinx found himself carefully considering the merits of Aeron's tenets of faith in Pelor. A few weeks in Aeron's company showed Jinx what he'd been missing and so when one night the gnome was visited in his sleep by a vision, Jinx hastened to leave the group when he woke. Refreshed and full of purpose, Jinx Marblestopp eschewed his alias in favor of his old name Bimpnottin Boddywink and began his long trek back to Greyhawk, to be pressed into service as an acolyte of Pelor.

    Aeron was born and raised in the secluded community of Caria, of about only 60 adults (and fewer children). His community was virtually unknown to the rest of the world, and the world was unknown or ignored by the community. The small village was entirely self-sufficient, surviving by foraging, hunting, and gardening. Because of this, Aeron, and all the children of the community, were essentially reared by the whole village, and all the children were like siblings.

    Being so small, the village had only one figure of authority: the Prophet. The Prophet was not even truly an authority figure, in the traditional sense, in that he/she was more of a councilor, teacher, and mediator rather than a ruler. The Prophet was also blessed with some small ability to heal. While the Prophet, and indeed the village as a whole, did not worship any deity (they didn’t believe such existed), they venerated the land and the “sun spirit” as the force behind their lives. It was believed to be this force that gave the Prophet power and wisdom. The only thing binding a Prophet was that at some time the Prophet would foresee his/her own death and, knowing it to be coming soon, would choose a replacement. The Prophets always said that the sun spirit would tell them to whom they should pass the role.

    Even when Aeron was a young child, some of the villagers believed that he would be destined to be the Prophet some day. He had a natural intuition, almost like a sixth sense. He was also good at aiding others. Aeron helped tend the ill, and sometimes predicted changes in the weather. He even believed he could sometimes sense the sun spirit. Aeron also had a strong presence and character. He found ways to inspire both the children and adults. Somehow even the children that were envious of him all liked him.

    Despite all of this, Aeron himself did not want to become the Prophet. As intuitive and personable as he was, he was sometimes prone to dark moods. When these odd times hit him, he wanted nothing to do with anyone. He didn't see himself as the leader of these people. Oddly, or perhaps actually not, the Prophet alone seemed to understand his plight. The current Prophet was Saevel, and he always told Aeron that if his heart longed for a solitary life, that is what he should seek. Despite the fact that Aeron did not want to become the next Prophet, he found himself more often in Saevel’s company than anyone else’s.

    Because of the relationship they had forged and Saevel’s insistence that Aeron pursue his own life, Aeron felt very betrayed when Saevel pronounced one morning that the sun spirit revealed Saevel's coming death and named Aeron as his successor. Despite the fact that the villagers assumed Aeron would be the Prophet, they were also taken aback. Saevel was not even yet 45 years old, while Aeron was still a child barely past 16. Unable to contain his bitterness and sorrow, Aeron quickly ran out of the village, climbed into a tree, and cursed his life until he fell asleep. Saevel implored the people to let him go, saying that Aeron would return as the sun spirit would dictate.

    Aeron awoke in the night to the sounds of his people screaming. Caria was being attacked. He ran to the edge of the village and was shocked to see a horde of fiendish monsters and undead slaughtering his people. By the light of the full moon he could well see the forms of humans lying motionless among the burning homes. He despaired. There was nothing that could be done. It seemed that it was over before he even reached the village. Aeron had decided to vanish into the forest when he saw the most horrid sight he has ever seen. In the middle of the village a walking corpse was eating the face of a dead man. But Aeron could tell by the staff lying next to the form that it was the body of Saevel. Consumed with rage, Aeron ran to grab a burning stick from one of the houses. He swiped at the corpse, and it fled. He ran out to Saevel and knelt by his desecrated form. Aeron began to sob immediately, as Saevel's blood soaked into his clothing, not even noticing the undead moving toward this one last living man. As he sobbed, one of the wicked creatures laughed. The hideous noise was only barely recognizable as such, but it was indeed a laugh.

    Aeron grabbed the Prophet’s staff and slowly stood to meet the gaze of these foul creatures. Soaked in blood, face full of tears, he stood resolute before them. Saevel, the Prophet, was dead. Aeron had been named, which meant that whether he wanted or not, though his people were all dead, he was now the Prophet of Caria. Aeron summoned all his will, and in a voice steady and proud called to the creatures: “By will of the Prophet, you shall leave NOW!”

    Silence. The creatures did not stir. Aeron didn’t even know if they had understood him. It was almost as if his words alone had caused them to be taken aback. Then, the monster in front laughed again. A black “something” flew at Aeron’s face. He dodged, but there was another. And then…darkness….

    ****
    An odd sensation. Bumping, moving.
    “Wha…”
    “Not yet. Rest child.”

    ****
    The sensation again. Yes, I am awake. I am being carried. Strong gentle hands.
    “Yes, dear child, you may rouse for a bit.”
    “S…Saevel?”
    “No, my son. I am not he.”
    “Let me walk. Why can I not see? Who are you?”
    “Remain calm, child. Had I meant harm, it would be done by now. You cannot yet walk on your own, and your eyesight will come back soon. You will see the sun again.”
    “But who are you?”
    “So inquisitive. Yes, you must rest more.”

    ****
    “…but I sensed something. I tell you, Father Orlpar, the boy is special.” A female voice? But I thought it was a he.
    “Yes, Amra, but bring him inside. He has obviously been through a great deal.” That one is male, but not the same.
    “Whe…where is the other?” Aeron softly asked.
    “My goodness!” Amra exclaimed. "The boy is coming around."
    “What other, child?” Orlpar asked. “There was no one with you.”
    Aeron opened his eyes, and was amazed. The two standing over him where surely humans, but they looked not like his brethren. And the place he was in had an intricate feel he admired, but it was nothing like the simple work his people did. And so many people…
    “Oh, Father, by the look on his face, he must be one of those reclusive folk that has never seen a city before.”
    “Fear not child. You are at the house of Pelor, the Shining One.”

    ****
    Aeron spent the next few years or so leaning to be a cleric of Pelor. The clergy are quite scholarly and taught him many things. He came to realize that the sun spirit that he and his people had been so connected to was in fact Pelor, and the powers the Prophets had were actually divine. He also came to think that the man who had saved him and brought him to the city may actually have been the Shining One himself. The clergy believed it to be possible as well.

    He focused his main attention upon learning about the creatures that were responsible for the destruction of his people. He knows that time will give him the strength to right the wrongs that occurred.

    Aeron, after training, left the city to search out the evil that he seeks to destroy. He has traveled to a couple of places, sometimes at the mere rumor of undead. Now he's caught wind of the trouble in Hommlet. Perhaps, in this place that once held such great evil, Aeron will be able to do the work of his master. His determination is matched by his overwhelming sense of what is good.

    ****
    “I thank you, sir. I don’t know what we would have done if you hadn’t found the cultist raising the zombies.”
    “Think nothing of it, madam. No, please keep your gold. You have more need for it.”
    “Thank you, sir. What did you say your name was again?”
    “I am Aeron, the Last Prophet of Caria.”
    Personality
    To those that do not know him well, Aeron seems quite serious, perhaps even severe at times. Those that know him, however, know that he has a strong compassion that he keeps buried from harm. Most of the time Aeron is gentle, kind, and patient. He is always eager to help. However, sometimes Aeron gets in a dark mood. At these times he is just as helpful, but he is curt rather than kind. When he is in these moods he tends to act quickly and decisively, and he will not suffer "the ignorance of fools." These moods rarely last long, however, as Aeron's compassion cannot be stifled.
    Description
    Aeron is of average build. His appearance varies depending upon whether he is having one of his moods. Normally, he appears well-kempt: shaved clean and armor polished. He is fairly attractive, and looks attentive to those around him. However, when Aeron is in one of his dark moods, he will neglect shaving. At these times he looks quite disheveled, and the look on his face is severe. His clear blue eyes, rather than looking attentive, seem to stare coldly through anyone that meets his gaze.

    Sir Merrick has recently been knighted and has entered errantry in search of good causes to put his military skills into use. Hearing of the recent troubles in the lands of the old temple he volunteered to investigate on behalf of the king and to set right what has gone wrong. Though he appears mostly human, Sir Merrick's silver eyes give hint to the celestial blood that flows through his veins. Fair of complexion and hair, Merrick has the appearance of a wrathful angel incarnated in human form to bring forth justice to the evils that plague mortals. Dedicated to the cause of fighting evil, Sir Merrick aspires to confronting wrongs and evil wherever it lurks.

    Deren lived a troubled youth. He belonged to a traveling group of performers, but only because his family was the leader of the group. Personally, he hates music and wishes to have nothing to do with it. His parents were always angry at his refusal to participate in the music and although they never did so in open, they beat him frequently, trying to force him into submission. The others in this group pretended not to notice, though it was impossible for them to do so. They frequently caught him playing in the cities they frequented and his parents declared that the cause of his bruises, though they never explained why Deren would get into so many fights [which he did occasionally, but only when he was caught thieving for survival].

    One day, Deren decided he'd had enough with it. He planned to make his big escape and flee into one of the large cities where he didn't have to worry about anything anymore. He knew well enough how to fend for himself. Unfortunately, as he was attempting his escape, he was caught by his parents and beaten near death. Just as it seemed to be the end for Deren, he struck back, killing both of his parents. Horror overtook poor Deren and he fled. He was declared a murderer despite attempts by the other group members to convince the authorities that it was purely self-defense.

    He was forced to flee into a forest where he spent many days trying to figure out what to do. A woman appeared to him in the midst of his confusion. She comforted and embraced him. She claimed to be a messenger of Ehlonna, and he believed her, but she was a liar. She twisted his mind and his soul, convincing him to do what she desired. At first she seemed fair, having him kill those who had wronged, freeing those who had been imprisoned like him. When he finally found out he was being used and most of the people he was killing had done nothing wrong, he was so trapped in her web that he could do nothing.

    Ehlonna, however, tired of him killing in her name. She sent several of her clergy to destroy the woman who had blackened his heart. The woman escaped death, but her wounds were terrible and her left eye had been cut open in a nearly fatal cut. Ehlonna's clergy showed him the wrongs of his ways and Deren wept in guilt and anguish. Only because of Ehlonna's guidance did he survive through this time. He held Ehlonna's name and beliefs strong in his heart and began to search the lands in ways to repent for his crimes.

    Appearance:
    Jebidiah appears to be a well dressed human male of average height and weight in his early 20's, Jebidiah is a handsome bald man with piercing blue eyes who speaks in a pleasant rich baritone.

    Background:
    Not much is known about Jebidiah Krane, despite his looks Jebediah is actually 60 years old and has worked as a private investigator for the King in the past.

    Jebidiah is believed to have been orphaned and raised by the Monks of the 'Reflective Spiirt', an insular group which dedicates itself to developing the little known powers of the mind.

    Jebidiah is infact part of a secret group of Psionic Aberations called Elans, who are highly placed throughout the Kingdom of Furyondy as well as many others.

    The ruling body (the Shadow Council) of the long lived Elans has been working from the shadows of Furyondy since it's inception, mentally guiding it along suitable paths and moulding and protecting the society into what it is today.

    Recognising the threat posed by the Temple in the area around Homlett, the Shadow Council has been keeping tabs on the abandoned temple, after hearing reports of renewed activiites the Shadow Council has arranged for the young Jebidiah Krane to be 'selected' as part of the group to investigate matters in Homlett.



    Things Learnt in Hommlet
    Spoiler:


    A chat with the Important Locals
    Spoiler:

    Jebediah spends his time wandering about town, and talking to the important residents. It is a sunny day, and Jebediah enjoys the fresh air and warm as he moves about town.

    Terjon, Chief Cleric of St. Cuthbert
    The Church of St. Cuthbert is a fairly new edifice of fine stone architecture. The main doors to the place are locked, but Jebediah finds entrance by side door into a small audience chamber. A young priest, who introduces himself as Calmert, greets Jebediah upon entry. He bids him to sit on one of the hardwood benches near the door, to peruse the religious tracts and scrolls on a nearby table, and indicates the location of the poor box. He then excuses himself from the room.

    Calmert returns about ten minutes later, and inquires as to Jebediah’s business. Upon learning that he would like to talk to Terjon, Calmert clears his throat and nods at the poor box. Only after Jebediah deposits a gold coin does he step out of the room again, saying that he will see if Canon Terjon is about.

    After another ten minutes or so passes, Calmert returns to inform Jebediah that Canon Terjon is unavailable, and suggests that he returns another time for an audience.


    Mytch, the Miller

    Arriving at the millhouse, Goodwife Miller quickly summons her husband Mytch to speak with Jebediah. The man is terse, and when Jebediah mentions the Temple, Mytch (too) quickly states the he is a very busy man and has much work to do. He states simply that he would prefer not to talk of such dark things, and asks Jebediah to leave.

    Jebediah gets the feeling that Mytch is nervous and hiding something from him.


    Danit, the Village Elder

    The walled manner house of the Village Elder is surrounded by an eight foot high wall with a heavy gate. Ringing the gate bell, a servant answers and escorts Jebediah to a richly appointed sitting room in the manor house. After a wait of about a quarter of an hour, and older man dressed in fine clothing enters, and introduces himself as Danit.
    During the course of the conversation, Jebediah learns that Danit is a retired farmer and prosperous landowner, and that he is also the Justice of the Peace in the village.

    When it comes to the topic of the Temple, Danit tries to be helpful. Jebediah finds out that while the Temple of Elemental Evil flourished, earthquakes, unnatural storms, great fires and flash floods would strike areas nearby with seeming capricousness. All of that ceased once the Temple was assaulted and sealed. He also gives you a brief background of the Temple’s history. Apparently, the original cult was dedicated to evil and chaos was established on the shores of the Nyr Dyv. The cult was based on the premise that the elemental forces of the universe are chaotic and opposed to mankind, and thus (from a humanocentric view) evil. The forces of the Temple worked to destroy all things good and to disrupt order. Many thieves, brigands and assassins worshipped the cult. Fire was regarded as the first elemental evil, its capriciousness and ability to destroy proof of its evil and chaos. Water was worshipped as an even more powerful force of chaos and evil, in the form of floods and raging seas. The epitome of chaos and evil, though, was the combination of earth and air, represented by blackness and corresponding with the demonic Abyss. This combination was regarded as the complete negation of matter.

    After an hour or so of talking, Danit excuses himself, saying that he has things that need attending. He warns Jebediah to be careful in his search for information on the cult, but doesn’t elaborate upon the warning.

    Jebediah sense no ill will from Danit during the conversation, though it seems that the Village Elder probably knows more than he is actually telling.


    Rufus and Burne

    Rufus and Burne dwell in a tall stone tower on the eastern edge of Hommlet, overlooking the village and countryside. Two men-at-arms on the tower’s roof watch Jebediah’s approach, one of them disappearing as he walks up a set of stone stairs that terminate at a landing about ten feet up. A few moments later, a drawbridge lowers from the tower to the landing on which you stand. A man-at-arms escorts Jebediah into the tower, leaving him to wait as he goes to fetch his masters.

    The entry chamber is about 40 feet in diameter, with ramps leading both up and down. Several comfortable armchairs are placed along the walls, and the walls themselves are hung with tapestries and decorated with shields, arms and hunting trophies. Jebediah is not made to wait long, as Burne, His Most Worshipful Mage of Hommlet, comes to greet him. As Jebediah sits and chats with the man, a man-at-arms keeps a suspicious eye on him, his hand very near the hilt of his sword the whole time.

    Although Rufus is apparently absent right now, leading a patrol of men somewhere south of Hommlet, Burne seems pleasant enough. He is a tall, slender man with dark hair and a well-trimmed spade beard, who dresses in very fine clothing. Jebediah gets the feeling that he knows much about the Temple of Elemental Evil, much more than he tells. Rufus often poses questions to Jebediah during the conversation, about Jebediah’s background and interest. Jebediah’s telepathic powers tell him that the shrewd wizard is uncertain and untrusting, and skeptical of the “historian” cover.

    About all he manages to get from Burne is that the Temple of Elemental Evil is hidden away in the hills near the village of Nulb, some ten league’s to the Northeast of Hommlet. Apparently, most of the upper works of the Temple were thrown down and destroyed in the final siege of the war. Because of the great evil and power of the Temple, though, the armies did not actually raze the Temple proper. Instead, the sealed the doors and placed mighty wards upon the place and the labyrinth beneath it. He explains that even so great of force that overthrew the Temple, could not cleanly deal with the things that lurked below. The place is shunned now, he says, and considered haunted. He also informs Jebediah that the village of Nulb near the Temple is a questionable place, filled with thieves, brigands and river pirates.

    He wishes Jebediah luck as he sees him off, but invites him to call upon him again should he need anything else.


    Jaroo, Druid of the Grove

    The Grove is an obvious place of worship; the trees are neatly pruned and the grass is well-tended. Jebediah follows a carefully placed path of bluish stones into the trees to a rock cairn where flowers, nuts, berries and garlands have been placed. He waits and even calls out, but apparently the Druid of the Grove is nowhere to be found.

    While he waits, Jebediah does get the impression that he is being watched, but by whom or by what he cannot tell.


    Torl, Captain of the Militia

    Jebediah finds Torl hard at work in the fields behind his home. The elderly farmer stll appears to be in good physical shape, and moves with the grace of a veteran warrior. He has little enough to say, suggesting that others may have more to tell. It is apparent that he has a dislike of foreigners (those not from the area near Hommlet). He suggests you talk to his son Elmo, who can often be found at the Inn. His other son, Otis, took service with another man who came asking questions about the Temple. He hasn’t been seen since.

    Jebediah can’t really tell if the man knows more than he says or not. Jebediah gets the feeling that the man is not pleased to talk with him, and that there is a definite dislike on the captain’s part.


    A chat with the local Trademen
    Spoiler:

    It takes little time for Jebediah to realize that most of the tradesmen in the village work from their homes, where they live with their families.

    The elderly weaver, Emmit, greets you warmly, and is more than happy to talk to you. However, he knows almost nothing about the Temple of Elemental Evil, besides the basic history of the area. He is a newcomer to the area, having moved to Hommlet just two years ago. He reveals no new information to Jebediah, but it seems as though he is honest not hiding things.

    Tindar the tailor is a small man, short and thin, who lives by himself. He too knows little about the Temple, having moved to the area only a few months ago. He is more than happy to talk to you, but again, reveals no new information. He appears to be telling the truth.

    The traders, Rannos and Gremag, are also quite friendly and talkative. They know only the basic history of the Temple, and thus provide you with no additional information. However, Jebediah is confident that Gremag, at least, knows more than he is telling. He cannot get a good read one way or another on Rannos.

    Nira, the moneychanger and jewelry maker, is a quiet, soft-spoken man. Apparently the village has grown significantly over the last decade, as Nira also is a relative newcomer to the village He professes no interest in the history of the area or of anything not related to business, and Jebediah believes him.

    The potter, Radker, is too busy to spend any time chatting with you. Even the offer of silver merely causes him to roll his eyes at you and then hastily rush you along on your way as he returns to work.

    Keln the brewmaster has resided in the village for a very long time, and in fact, even fought with the forces of good against the Temple of Elemental Evil at the Battle of Emridy Meadows. He speaks with you over a mug of excellent hand-crafted ale, telling you stories of the depredations that the minions of evil inflicted upon the region. Robberies, murders, rapes, etc. He even shows you the finely crafted spear that hangs over his mantle, the spear he used against the gnolls, orcs and evil men of the Temple. He informs you that he has heard whispers of interdicted places beneath the old ruins of the Temple, where even the forces of good dared not go. He also tells you that he suspects many of the survivors of the evil forces may have resettled in Nulb, the small community a day or so travel up the road, near the actual temple site. The place has an evil reputation. He recommends that you be extremely careful in your quest for knowledge regarding the Temple, as there are some things that are best left alone. The man does not seem to hiding anything.

    The cabinet maker, Arrod, also provides little useful information. He suggests you speak with the Village Elder about such things, as few of the villagers have any knowledge of the Temple besides the basic history of the region. He does not seem to be hiding anything.

    The teamster, Laugo, seems to be a nice enough man, and is happy to speak with you. Although is too is a relative newcomer to the village, he explains to you that he has lost one wagon and team to the bandits in the area. He doesn’t know if it has anything to do with the Temple or not, but the rumors of bandits and such are certainly true. He provides little information on the Temple, but makes a point of telling Jebediah that the traders are not to be trusted. He says nothing further. It seems that he may be hiding something, but he quickly excuses himself, saying he has to get back to work.

    The cheesemaker and cowherd is an elderly man by the name of Nim. He spends a few moments chatting with Jebediah, but waves off the rumors of evil in the area. He seems to think that too many people are paranoid, and informs you that he has no doubts that the Temple is destroyed and its forces extinct. He attributes the stories of bandits to the fact that business has been excellent of late, and that brigands always follow where trade is good. You learn nothing new, and Nim seems to be telling the truth as he sees it.

    Jebediah finds the blacksmith, Brother Smythe, pounding away furiously at his forge. The short, brawny man speaks with you only briefly, but you discover that he is the assistant to the Druid of the Grove, Jaroo. He suggests that you speak with the Druid for the information that you seek. He then turns back to the forge.

    The stonemason is not at home, but Jebediah is told that he can be found overseeing the construction of the new fortifications around Burne and Rufus’ tower. Jebediah tries to seek him out, but the man is nowhere to be found. The workers all claim that he was here a short time ago.

    The carpenter, Yentum, is another newcomer to the village. He too has nothing worthwhile to relate to Jebediah. He simply goes about his work, and doesn’t take too much stock in the rumors of evil in the area. He seems to be telling the truth.

    The wheel/wainwright is a middle aged man named Jasc. He doesn’t impart much information about the Temple, but says if there is any evil in the village it is that no-good Druid of the Grove. Jasc seems to believe the man is practicing evil arts, and holds many of the village folk under some mystic charm. While he seems to be telling the truth, Jebediah also detects the smell of alcohol on the man’s breath.

    The last person on Jebediah’s list for the day is Marty the Leatherworker, who again knows little of the Temple besides the local history. He did live in the village during the time when the Temple held sway, though, and can speak on the vileness and despicable acts that the Temple folk inflicted upon the innocent. Although he doesn’t know much about the rumors of evil, he claims that one night, just a few weeks ago, that he saw a demon on the outskirts of town. He claims that it was a huge, hairy looking beast, twice the size of a man, with large twisted horns and long serpent-like tail, wielding a large axe. He says he reported it to the village elder, but when some of the militia investigated, they found nothing. Marty appears to be telling the truth, and doesn’t seem to be hiding anything.

    Upon returning to Burne, and showing him the King’s writ, the mage seems most interested in helping Jebediah. Although Burne is an agent of the Viscount of Verbobonc, and not the King of Furyondy, the two good realms are closely allied. He agrees to provide you with two men-at-arms to protect you while you are in the village.


    A chat with Burne
    Spoiler:

    Concerning symbols, Jebediah is told that each type of elemental evil has a symbol associated with it: Square for Water, triangle for Earth, circle for Air, and two squares laid over one another to form a sort of eight-pointed star for Fire.

    Generally, followers of Elemental Earth wore brown, followers of Fire wore red, Water wore green and Air wore gray. Additionally, some followers did not follow any particular elemental evil, and simply pledge their loyalty to the quadrate system...these types generally dressed in garments of black coloration.

    Additionally, the Lord Wizard Burne said he would do some research to try and find some more information that would be of use to Jebediah. He asked Jebediah to check back with him in a few days.

    Interviews:

    Spoiler:

    Thomas quickly ushers in the first of the interviews, and Jebediah gets to work asking his questions and such. There are five adventurer types that show up to express their interest:

    Spugnois: Spugnois appears to be a mage of some sort, though he tells you that he is a scholar interested only in studying magical writings and such. He has come to the area to search for old scrolls and books, as he had heard rumors that there were many rare magics used by the Temple in its heyday. He claims that he has learned that a Wizard inhabited the ruined Moathouse outside of the village, and that he is planning on searching it soon. He appears to be telling the truth.

    Zert: Zert is a well-built warrior type, clad in scale armor. He claims to know nothing of the Temple, and says that he is simply looking for work as a man-at-arms. He says that he is a veteran of many wars and such that have been fought over the last decade, and has always worked as a mercenary of sorts. Jebediah can tell that this man is outright lying, and that he knows much more about the Temple than he is letting on.

    Kobort: Companion of Turuko (below), Kobort is a huge, lumbering warrior in banded armor. He knows little of the Temple beyond simple rumors, and he and his companion are simply looking for work. He doesn’t appear to be lying, although he answers many of your questions by telling you to speak with Turuko, who would know more about that sort of thing.

    Turuko: A short, slim man of Baklunish origin, Turuko dresses in simple robes. He professes no love of combat, but says that it is how he and his companion Kobort have made their living. They had come to Hommlet upon hearing rumors of bandits and such in the area, hoping to find work as guards or mercenaries. He can tell you only the basic background of the Temple, although he hints that he may know more. However, he says that it is unwise to speak of such subjects until you know who you can and can’t trust. He appears to be telling the truth in his statements.

    Elmo: Elmo is a tall and well-built man dressed in dirty leathers, with greasy brown locks and dull eyes. He smells of alcohol, and by the way he staggers upon entering the room, Jebediah has a suspicion that he may already be drunk. His speech is slow and halting, and he gives the impression of lacking somewhat in intelligence. Elmo claims to be a mercenary looking for work, and explains that he has lived in Hommlet his whole life. When questioned about the Temple, he tells Jebediah that much evil still lurks in the Temple ruins, and that if you are truly interested in the history of the place, you should investigate the ruins themselves. He warns you that none have ever returned from exploring the remains of the place, though, and that you should be extremely careful. After the interview ends, Jebediah is stuck with the impression that the man is much more intelligent then he is letting on, and that the drinking is possibly a ruse of some type.
