The Temple of Elemental Evil

25 years ago, forces of evil constructed a small chapel outside the village of Nulb. The chapel was quickly built into a stone temple from which bandits and evil humanoids began to operate with increasing frequency. Three years later, a combined force of good was sent to destroy the Tempel and put an end to the marauding.
Men, dwarves and gnomes combined to face the threat of the Horde of Elemental Evil, consisting largely of savage humanoids such as orcs, ogres and gnolls. The arrival of the elves from the forest turned the tide of battle, trapping the evil humanoids against a bend in the river where they where routed and slaughtered.
After dispersing the Horde of Elemental Evil, the allied forces laid siege to the Temple of Elemental Evil itself, defeating it within a fortnight. Spell casters loyal to the goodly army cooperated on a spell of sealing, that bound the demoness Zuggtmoy (a major force in the Horde of Elemental Evil) to some of the deepest chambers in the temple’s dungeons.
The site itself remained, however, and over the following decade rumors of evil presence there persisted. The viscount and the archcleric became increasingly concerned, and cooperated to build a small castle outside the village of Hommlet to guard against the possibility of the Temple rising again. For the next five years, Hommlet gained in wealth thanks to adventurers who came to the area seeking out remnants of evil to slay. Things quieted down for another four years as the area returned to peace and normalcy, but evil began to stir again, with groups of bandits riding the roads.
12 years ago, mighty heroes of good broke the magic seals and entered the temple. They discovered and destroyed the newly arisen cult of Elemental Evil, which was hiding in the the deep dungeons of the unholy place, by turning the four factions (earth, water, air, and fire) against one another. But accidentally the heroes freed the imprisoned demoness Zuggtmoy.
