The red monks were a group of evil monks led by Gargola who would have been involved in the Monk Quest. The red monks would have been using a "magical amulet of chaos and destruction" to torment Abbot Hoss, the head monk of a monastery next to them, in his sleep. This amulet could also be used to "cause pain and horror" to anyone that they wanted. The red monks wore red capes and used jars of wine in their rituals.
During the Monk Quest, the player would trick Gargola into thinking that they wanted to join and then they would destroy the amulet by pouring a Wizard's Mind Bomb on it.
