The Burning Sultans
The Burning Hand is a small cult operating near Vez. They have set up a base of operations in the cave networks near the town’s qanat supply, and appear to be responsible for that supply running dry. According to members of the Gorbilex goblin tribe living in the caves, the Burning Hand cult was relatively weak until recently, when something gave them enough strength to drive out the goblins and take ownership of the caves for themselves. The cult is composed of humans and kobolds, though some tension appears to exist between these two groups. The cult has had apparent success in binding minor elementals to this plane in service to the cult’s leaders, and has made reference to a leader named “Belaal,” for whom these elementals seem to be pets.
